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!

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!!

I have used Todd not only for our wedding but for 2 other business shoots. I am always pleased with his work. His attention to detail is second to none, and he always delivers and gives you exactly what you are looking for. Todd comes highly recommended, you won’t be disappointed.

Todd was excellent and the photos came out better than we could have dreamed. He met with us first to show us his portfolio and go over what we were looking for. Anytime we contacted him leading up to the wedding, he was very quick to get back to us. The day of, he showed up on time and ready to go. He worked with us to get the shots we wanted and was very thorough and detail oriented when taking each photo. He took a nice mixture of formal portraits and relaxed, unposed pictures to show off every part of our day. He worked very hard and we couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Todd was amazing! He went above and beyond to make sure our photos were exactly what we wanted. Todd spent time with me before the wedding, scouting locations and putting together a timeline to get all the unique shots I wanted. Not only did Todd deliver, but he went over and above to get us our dream wedding photos! I would highly recommend Todd as a wedding photographer, especially for those looking for unique, candid shots!

Farmington Club Wedding

Todd was a friendly and professional photographer who went out of his way to make sure our wedding day was captured perfectly. Todd met with us in person for over an hour to discuss our vision for the style of photographs we wanted. He was very accommodating to specific requests, taking into account our “wants” and “do not wants”. He offered guidance as to what kinds of poses and styles we wanted without pushing us into preconceived or cliche poses. He took care to learn the names of all family members and wedding party members. His samples were beautiful, and the photos he took for us were just as good as the samples. His pricing was excellent, and the quality of his photos equals or surpasses those of photographers who cost double or triple the price. As a same-sex couple, it was important to us to choose a photographer that was sensitive to the unique dynamics of a same-sex wedding. If Todd had never photographed for a wedding of two men, we would not have known. He was very at ease and treated us as if we were any other couple. Rather than making assumptions he asked respectful questions about what we preferred as a same sex couple. He did not refer to our wedding party as the “bridal party” as other vendors did. What made the greatest impact on us, other than the high quality of his photos, was that he was very aware that certain poses of opposite-sex couples clearly do not suit same-sex couples. He never asked us to pose in a “bride and groom” style photo and was careful to not impose any kind of assumed gender roles. In all, Todd was wonderful to work with and took fantastic photos. We give him our highest recommendation. Todd – thank you for capturing our day. Through your photos we will always remember our wedding as vividly as the day it took place.

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!

If you’re looking for the wedding photographer of your dreams, you’ve found it with Todd. Seriously, stop looking and BOOK this guy NOW! My husband and I cannot even begin to explain how unfathomably satisfied we were with Todd from Della Bella Photography.

Alison & Joshua, Colonial Tavern, Oxford, Ct.

We had our engagement shoot with Todd back in October and it couldn’t have gone better! Todd and JoJo were great about making us feel comfortable and really captured us as a couple. Before the shoot Tood took the time to meet with me for over an hour to show me his portfolio. I knew right away he would be a good fit for us. I can’t wait for Todd and JoJo to shoot our wedding next summer!
