Getting Started with Della Bella Photography

STEP O1: It usually starts with an email, text, or phone call. We arrange an appointment to meet and view slideshows, past albums, and portfolios. I will meet at a location convenient to you.

STEP 02: We discuss what style of photography you prefer, get to know each other a little and see if it’s a match creatively. We also discuss the wedding package you are interested in and all the details of your wedding day.

STEP 03: If hired, a contract is drawn up and emailed to you based on our discussions during the consultation. Your signature and a $100 deposit is required (check, money order, or credit card). Your balance will be due one week prior to the wedding date.

STEP 04: We are always here for you between the time we are hired to the day of your wedding! I often ask clients to send me wedding images you like from the web and I will put them with your file. We also bring sample wedding images to the shoot for a visual, prior to taking the bride and groom portraits.

I do full coverage of your day–8 hours from getting ready to the end of the reception.

From the Happy Couples

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!

Rachael & Adam Wickham Park Engagement Shoot / Manchester, Ct.

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!

Kristin & Utkarsh Terrace on the Park Flushing, NY.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Travis & Lisa / The Spa at Norwich Inn

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!

Nicole & Jordan Pequot Museum / Lake of Isles Golf Course & Resort North Stonington, Ct.

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 !

Kellie & Peter Aria Wedding Prospect, Ct.

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”.
