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.

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”.
Todd Della Bella is an awesome photographer! He is professional and prepared, and takes the time to get every moment. The candid shots were breathtaking. This guy rocks!
We did an engagement shoot with Todd and he was the photographer for our wedding. He did an amazing job for both events and we are so happy we picked Della Bella Photography. Todd has great vision for how couples can pose for photos and gives really clear instructions to help you get the perfect shot. The photos turn out amazing and they are so much better than what you can come up with on your own. Todd is also very responsive during the planning process and easy to work with even if you have changes leading up to the wedding day.
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.
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.
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 Todd 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!
We had an excellent experience with Della Bella photography from start to finish! Great communication, great eye for candid’s, patience for posed, and beautiful photographs in the end. They also included ALL of the pictures taken on a thumb drive. We couldn’t be happier!!!
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!!
Todd was fantastic. We enjoyed working with him before and at the wedding, and were so happy with the photos he took. It’s now six months later and we love looking at our pictures. He has such a good eye!
Todd is an incredible and creative photographer. He was very professional and responsive from day one. All of our wedding photos are amazing and Todd went above and beyond to make sure he captured every special moment during our wedding. I would recommend Della Bella Photography to all our family and friends!
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!
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.
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!
Todd did an absolutely amazing job as the photographer for our wedding. He took so many great creative candid photographs! We were very pleased with his expertise in choosing modern poses, capturing spontaneous moments, and utilizing the best locations at our venue. His assistant Paula worked in unity with him complimenting everything as well, and paying attention to all the details. He directed us effectively into the right poses and we really appreciated his patience during the group photos. Additionally, he was always available during the post production process and in choosing the style of our album after the wedding. We are so thankful and would highly recommend Della Bella Photography!
Todd and JoJo are the very best of the best. Going into it, we knew we needed a wedding photographer with whom we could be comfortable and be ourselves. We wanted someone who could not only capture beautiful photographs but who cared about getting to know us and capturing “us”. We did our engagement shoot with Todd and JoJo and knew from the start that they were exactly who we were looking for. They made things so easy, coming prepared and being receptive to our questions and ideas. When it came to preparing for the big day, Todd met with us several times to talk logistics. He cared about understanding what was important to us, and also played a critical part in helping us prepare for the day. Todd has wealth of experience and knowledge, as well as an attention to detail second to none, resulting in an ultimate product which is beautiful. We LOVE all of our wedding photos, from our portraits to our first look to all of the wonderful candids captured throughout the night. We could not have been happier with Todd and JoJo and highly recommend them.
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 photos a few weeks after our honeymoon. He sent our final photographs a month after our wedding. Which is so quick a lot 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 !
Do not hesitate to hire Todd and Jo Jo as your wedding photographer. We are so pleased with all of the beautiful photos we have to remember such a special occasion. Todd is easy to work with and works very hard to capture the shots requested. He carefully listens to your preferences, offers his ideas, expertise and guidance and works very hard throughout the day to stay on schedule and maximize the number of shots taken. He is very talented and the quality of the photos is superb. We were so happy to have found him!
I’m very happy with my choice to go with Della Bella Photography–very professional, always available to get in contact with, and easy to work with. Aims to please for sure, worth the money, love my photos!!
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 is professional in every sense of the word: timely, communicative, kind, generous, personable, hard working and has an amazing artistic vision which he carries out beautifully. I am an artist myself in the theatre world in New York City, so personally, I was looking for a photographer that I could not only connect with, but who had an artistic eye and vision for my theme and Todd NAILED IT. I recently received my shoot proof gallery and my husband and I are blown away. The work came out even better than we expected which is almost impossible!
Todd was a pleasure to work with! He listened to our wants and concerns and was very good with the challenges that can come with photographing toddlers, which was important to us as our 18 month old was a big part of our day. Todd was prompt, had great follow-up, and was reasonably priced. We ended up with beautiful pictures that captured the moments and emotions of our wedding day!
Todd was very accommodating and very committed to his work. A true artist in my eyes. He was also a lot of fun. Multiple comments from groomsmen after the wedding talking about how much fun it was working with Todd.
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!
I have to start by saying that from the very beginning, Todd has been such a wonderful person to work with. Very down to earth, relaxed, confident. Which is so important, when the bride to be is secretly panicking on the inside. The day of the wedding, through chaos of getting ready, earrings not fitting right, dying of thirst, Todd and his assistant were there to help and guide us through it all! I was so lucky to have found him, he loves his job, and you can tell in his work. Plus, he laughed at my sarcastic jokes! If you want a reliable, professional, amazing photographer, Todd is your guy!
Todd and Jojo were amazing to work with. They made us feel very comfortable from the start. You don’t realize how much time you spend with your photographers at your wedding so it’s important to have a great team who is easy to work with and can capture it all, and they both did that!
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!
Move over James Brown, there is a new “hardest working man in show business,” and his name is Todd Della Bella! Book him now! As an amateur shutterbug, I know the difference between a good photographer and a good wedding photographer. Todd is a GREAT wedding photographer.
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!
