About Della Bella

Welcome...Congratulations on your Engagement!

I am a full time wedding photographer based in Connecticut. I love traveling, hiking, diving, and the ocean,
but my passion, lifestyle, and career is photography.

PAS•SION / noun: an intense emotion, or a compelling enthusiasm and desire!

CRE•A•TIV•I•TY / noun: the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness.

Photography has been my passion ever since my first camera in high school. It has taken me all over the country on many weddings, assignments and projects. Passion is a word I would like to touch on, because it involves much in my life, and it is what I strive to capture on your wedding day.

I have explored many different paths in photography in my life, but capturing passion, love, and emotion on your wedding day gives me purpose in life. The timeless spontaneous moments can be looked back on through the generations of your family, and that gives me much pleasure. I’m all about capturing the genuine, fun, and unique love that you two share.

Every wedding shoot creates a new opportunity to meet new people, explore ideas and locations, to improvise and draw out all of my photographic experience to capture those special moments. It is a true privilege to be hired and trusted to capture the most precious memories from your wedding day.

Shoot me an email and let’s start the journey to create some crazy,
romantic, and unforgettable moments together!

From Our Amazing Couples

Todd did such an amazing job with our wedding photos. They came out gorgeous. His price was very reasonable compared to others we had inquired, and his work was top notch. You can tell he really loves what he does. He was also very responsive, we never had an issue getting ahold of him or a response back, something we heard others had issues with their photographers. The best part is that we had our photos in about 3 weeks after the wedding…This is unheard of. We loved our experience with Todd at our engagement shoot as well. The weather wasn’t the best, and Todd did a great job! The photos came out wonderful, and we received them in a timely fashion.

Todd was absolutely amazing! I am so glad my husband and I chose him for our wedding. He was so detail oriented, creative, and went above and beyond to make sure we had the best pictures to have forever from our day! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. Honestly, he is wonderful. He answered our questions the whole time throughout the wedding process and on the day of everything was seamless. You won’t regret choosing him!

Thank you so much for this review Colleen, from getting ready to the end of the reception @saintclemetscastle, you and Joe were such wonderful clients to work with. Your timeline worked to perfection, the venue and weather was amazing, and the most important part is always the people.

I would highly recommend Della Bella to anyone. Todd listened to what we wanted and offered excellent ideas. He was very professional every step of the way and you can tell he really knows how to frame a shot. We received our photos in within a month after the wedding– and we love them!

Todd and his team were great! We really wanted to enjoy our wedding but we also wanted great photographs of the event and Todd delivered! From the get go he built out a timeline right on the phone with me, which set me at ease and built great expectation of the day! He even let me see a couple of them as we were shooting and they were GREAT! We got all the shots we wanted and still got to enjoy our wedding!! He was there early and late! We got the photos back really fast I was shocked they are all great!! So many people posted how beautiful they came out. I’m so glad I chose Todd hes a real professional and he knows what he is doing!! We are going to cherish these photos forever!! Great Job Todd and Team!!

My husband and I booked Todd as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did! He is professional, punctual, and passionate about what he does. He took stunning photographs throughout our entire ceremony and reception–we could not have been more pleased with our final gallery of pictures! He is so easy to work with and our package we very reasonably priced. I especially loved his strong attention to detail and his consistent dedication to providing us with the exact shots we wanted. He is also very versatile; he will adapt to whatever style of wedding or photography you would like. If you are looking for a superior experience and product, look no further than Della Bella Photography!

This man is amazing. We had a really complicated wedding. He was everywhere and at the same time almost not noticeable. I would recommend everyone to use this service. Tons of experience and top notch images. He is the best. This is the one to hire if you want everything to go smoothly and focus on your big day!!

I used Della Bella for my photographer for my wedding and I am beyond happy. We were on a tight budget and Della Bella was very reasonable. Not only was the price good but we had an instant connection. We told him we didn’t want many pictures of our guest we wanted more of us and our families and our bridal party. Which I met with a few photographers and Todd was the only one who wasn’t judgy and snotty when I said that. He was understanding and really wanted us to be comfortable and love the photos. Everything with Todd was just easy which when your under wedding stress that what you need! I can’t say enough good things. He was on time, he took charge during the chaos and he sent me sneak peak photo a few the week of our honeymoon and than some more and he sent our final photographs a month after our wedding. Which is so quick alot of my friends didn’t get back their photos for a few months. I was so please with the photos and I am very critical of myself in photograph but I LOVEDDD how I looked since he is so talented !

I am an artist and when my husband and I were searching for a wedding photographer I did extensive research. I can’t tell you how many portfolios I looked at and how many websites I searched….. waaaay to many to count, but once I found Della Bella Photography my hunting stopped! (The photographer for our special day was so important that we booked Todd before we even had a venue or a definite date). Let me tell you…..Todd LOVES photography. For him, the camera is an extension of what he sees and a means to capture the physical as well as a the emotional moment. That might sound a bit out there, but a picture is just not a picture, its a very specific snapshot in time and Todd does everything he can to capture it the way he sees it and the way “you feel”.

From our first contact with Todd he was very responsive, courteous, and easy to deal with, and he continued to demonstrate those attributes throughout the course of our daughter’s wedding. He was very creative and responsive to requests made by the bride and groom, both before and during the wedding. Our wedding was a very small affair, immediate family only, and Todd and his assistant integrated into the party like family!! It was an absolute pleasure having Todd as our wedding photographer and I would not only use him in the future but also highly recommend him to anyone else. And the best part, is the photographs are gorgeous!
