"TOP NOTCH PHOTOGRAPHER"

"Our Bellagala photographer was top notch! Her professionalism and decades of experience were apparent from the very beginning at our engagement session and carried through our wedding and reception.

MARIA & AARON | OCTOBER 17

"SO MANY GREAT IDEAS"

"You could tell she loved her job and she was so easy to work with. She had many great ideas and was perfectly fine with me or my husband giving input or suggestions on pictures we wanted. She even stayed a little past the time we paid her for just so she could get a couple more evening shots!"


ZEE & KEVIN | MAY 13

"PUT US AT EASE"

"I should add that we absolutely LOVED Verna! We met her when we did our engagement shoot, and adored her immediately. She put us at ease through the whole thing, and we were pretty darn nervous and awkward at first!"

JENNA & RYAN | OCTOBER 15

“COULND’T HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER”

“Anthony was seriously amazing, I couldn't have asked for a better person to have done our photographs. I felt like every time I needed to get in contact with him, he was very quick in his responses. He kept things calm during the wedding day when I thought there wasn't going to be enough time to get things done. He listened to what I wanted and made it happened. And he meshed with our 6 year old very well! It was great to see him incorporate and play along with our son instead of getting annoyed and flustered. LOVED HIM!”

KATIE & JAROD | SEPTEMBER 24

“AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS!”

“Our photographer was very organized and friendly. She answered all of our questions and helped us prep for the big day when we met her for consultation. She takes amazing photographs!”

CHELSEA & TAYLOR | OCTOBER 01

“ALWAYS ON TOP OF THINGS”

“Caitlin, our photographer, got in touch with us so quickly and immediately had a face-to-face meet scheduled. She was so helpful, and always so on top of things. She came with a full list of suggested shots so we had a better idea of what we wanted and what we need.”

ELIZABETH & DAVID | OCTOBER 08

“AMAZING TO WORK WITH”

“Allison was absolutely amazing to work with! Never did I feel uncomfortable, it's like I had known her for years. She was so creative with her ideas and made sure to accommodate the ideas that I had as well. She went above and beyond! I had so many guests compliment me on her professionalism and attitude. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!”

COLLEEN & JARED | OCTOBER 08

“TOLD A STORY WE’LL CHERISH FOREVER”

“I searched long and hard for the perfect photographer who could capture the emotions of our big day and I couldn't have picked a better fit. Kim was so wonderful and truly captured our day by taking photos that not only told a story but that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I never considered how much time you actually spend with the photographer during the day of your wedding! Kim was so easy to talk to and especially made my groom feel so comfortable. She had the best suggestions not only for photography at our wedding but other tips and tricks she had learned throughout the years. She didn’t need to provide this information but she truly does care about your day which is why I am so glad we had her near us for our wedding.”

SARAH & JEREMY | SEPTEMBER 24

“A TRULY AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER”

“Photography was defiantly one of the most important thing about my wedding. Johanna is a truly amazing photographer. Her photos are breath taking and better then we could have ever imagined. We would not have been happier with any other photographer. From the second we met her we knew we were in the best of hands. I recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer.”

CATHERINE & JEFF | SEPTEMBER 09

“SUPER FRIENDLY”

“Our photographer Sarah was super friendly and responsive to our vision, and we couldn't have been happier with her on the day of the wedding. She killed it!”

HEATHER & BROC | AUGUST 06

“VERY ORGANIZED AND EASY TO WORK WITH”

“Allison was great. She was very organized and easy to work with. Our pictures (both engagement and wedding) turned out better than I could have imagined. We had a large wedding party and she did a great job getting everyone posed and in position. She was very receptive to what type of pictures we wanted to take and made sure there was time to get them in.”

EMILY & JOSHUA | SEPTEMBER 8

"STRONGLY RECCOMMEND"

"I was particularly impressed with the quality and quantity of pictures Ashley was able to take in the limited amount of time we had in the church after the service. Everyone raves about the pictures. She captured the day exactly as I wanted. I could tell she had listened to what I wanted and took her shots accordingly. One thing she did which I appreciated is saved pictures I liked on her iPhone and reminded me of poses I wanted throughout the day. Ashley is an excellent photographer and I would strongly recommend her."

JESSICA & LUKE | AUGUST 10

"THE PHOTOS ARE BEAUTIFUL"

"Thank you. So much. The photos are beautiful. We are in complete awe at how wonderful they turned out. It was the most amazing day of our lives and you captured it so eloquently. My mother-in-law is in complete shock at the sheer awesomeness of these photos. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, so much. You and your assistant are so talented. We cannot say or thank you enough. You'll be recommended to everyone we know in need of a photographer." 

CHRISTINE & ANDREW | MAY 9

"PLEASURE TO WORK WITH"

"Caitlin was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very sweet, knowledgeable, organized, and took wonderful pictures. Caitlin photographed engagement photos, and our wedding day for us. We were both very nervous going into the engagement shoot but we ended up having a great time and the photos were beautiful. She was very helpful when it came to the timeline for our wedding day, we had no idea how things would go and she was able to give us great suggestions. On our wedding day, her and the second shooter worked well together. I would highly suggest Caitlin to anyone. Thank you for all of your work!" 

NICOLE & JASON | MAY 23

"OUR EXPERIENCE WAS OUTSTANDING"

"I have to say that our experience with Bellagala was outstanding! Not only was the company great to work with but we were blessed to work with such a great photographer in Jaime! She treated us like gold and made sure that we got all the shots we wanted. Even when a little rain came down, she was rolling around on the ground just to get a better shot! That's going above and beyond!! We can't recommend Jaime enough for your next photographer!"

KELLY & MICHAEL | JUNE 28

"GREAT JOB CAPTURING THE DETAILS"

"Lisa was absolutely wonderful to work with! Her pictures were amazing, she has so much energy and passion for what she does, and she is really up for anything! She was really able to get a variety of types of shots of all the bridal party and bride and groom, and did a great job capturing the details as well. We loved working with her, and would definitely recommend her!"

KELLY & CHRIS | OCTOBER 11

"FUN AND CREATIVE SHOTS"

"Jessica and Katie were fantastic. They listened to what we were looking for in wedding photos and had some creative ideas throughout shooting. They were prepared, on time, and easily one of the best parts of our wedding planning experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for fun, creative shots." 

MORGAN & TONY | OCTOBER 10

"RELAXED FROM THE BEGINNING"

"Kim was relaxed from the beginning. She had great notes on the photos that we wanted, but I was also interested in a photo journalism style which she enjoys doing. I chose her as a photographer because of her portfolios, it was clear that I was going to like her style. Even though my schedule got a little behind at the beginning of the wedding day, she did a great job coordinating time and getting all the shots in any way. I definitely recommend the second photographer if you are particular about getting a lot of specific shots. It worked well for our wedding because we did get a little behind, and having two photographers I think helped make all the pictures possible." 

SARA & JACOB | JULY 16

“SO GLAD WE CHOSE BELLAGALA” 

“I LOVED my Bellagala photographer Rachel! She was awesome. I am so glad we chose bellagala. Rachel and second shooter Keighla worked with us every step of the day. They helped guide us through poses and chose beautiful backgrounds. On a day that can be very stressful to a bride and groom, they made it simple and enjoyable.”

JAMIE & CAMERON | JUNE 11

“CAPTURED OUR DAY BEAUTIFULLY” 

“Bellagala photography was wonderful to work with, but really I'm just super excited that they helped me find Ashley. Bellagala offered so many options. Samantha was great, she asked so many questions, when we met for my consultation, that led me to choose Ashley B. as my photographer. I LOVE ALL of my photos! The staff at Bellagala was great, they are all so sweet and genuine! They helped me with my many questions and made the process very smooth. I am beyond ecstatic about Ashley, my photographer. I can't say enough about how great she was - both for our engagement pictures and on my wedding day. She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect - even fixing my groom's sweaty hair (94 degrees out and a military uniform make for one sweaty groom!). She is a passionate, energetic, genuine person and that shows through her gorgeous photos! Ashley made a detailed timeline that helped to guide my entire bridal party. She also made a must-have photo list and referenced this list throughout the day to ensure we had the photos we wanted. She interacted with my guests and truly felt like part of our family on our wedding day! I could say thank you a million times and that wouldn't even begin to express my thanks to Ashley for capturing our day so beautifully! I would 100% recommend Ashley to anyone, and I have already told many others about her amazing work.”

ABBIE & JAKE | JUNE 25

“VERY PROFESSIONAL YET PERSONABLE” 

“Kim is the best. So easy to work with, brings up all the things I wouldn't have thought of myself. Very professional yet personable. Makes helpful suggestions with her expertise and experience. It is photographers like her (and Mariah!) that make Bellagala successful. Her photographs are incredible and she is and incredible person. Win-win!”

JEN & STEPHAN | AUGUST 5

“TRULY A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH” 

“We had the pleasure of working with Mindy for both our engagement photos and our wedding day photos. My husband absolutely hates getting his picture taken, but Mindy was fabulous for this----she is funny and quick witted, and puts many people at ease even if they hate being on the other side of the camera. She also has an eye for poses and lighting, and goes out of her way to make sure you get the shots you want taken, and also throws in a few ideas of her own that you wouldn't think of. She fit right in with the guests at our wedding, cracking jokes and making people enjoy themselves while taking pictures. She was truly a pleasure to work with and many of our friends and family members went out of their way to come up to us at the reception and tell us how much they liked our photographer.”

ALLYSE & MATTHEW | JULY 23

“KEPT EVERYONE SMILING” 

“Joseph was our photographer and he did an amazing job. I haven't actually seen the photos yet, but he kept everyone smiling and laughing and made my fiance and I feel super comfortable. My now husband doesn't love taking photos, but Joseph was able to maintain such a relaxed and fun atmosphere that my husband didn't even seem to notice how long he'd been smiling and posing for. I would recommend Joe to anyone.”

MARIE & CHRISTOPHER | JULY 23

“TOTALLY AT EASE” 

“We had Johanna K as our wedding photographer with Bellagala. She was amazing! My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera and we don't have much experience with professional photographs, but Johanna was incredibly patient with us and made us feel totally at ease! She was very flexible with timeline and made sure to continually check in with us leading up to the event, and did a great job of coordinating everything on the day-of. She did the leg work to figure out exactly what shots we couldn't live without, and made sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted. She was such a joy to work with, we feel very lucky!”

OLIVIA & JUSTIN | FEBRUARY 01

“APPRECIATED HAVING AT MY WEDDING” 

“Both our photographer AND our photo station attendant were AMAZING! I have never met kinder people who I so appreciated having at my wedding. The photo station attendant was so eager and excited and that really made me so happy. He was awesome!!! And Lisa honestly made my day so much better. Her personality was EXACTLY what I needed on my wedding day to calm me, laugh and get excited! Gosh she is so sweet and I ABSOLUTELY recommend them both!”

NICOLE & JASON | MAY 23 

“BELLAGALA WAS OUTSTANDING”

“I have to say that our experience with Bellagala was outstanding! Not only was the company great to work with but we were blessed to work with such a great photographer in Jaime! She treated us like gold and made sure that we got all the shots we wanted. Even when a little rain came down, she was rolling around on the ground just to get a better shot! That's going above and beyond!! We can't recommend Jaime enough for your next photographer!”

JESSICA & BRIAN | MARCH 08

“WARM AND FRIENDLY” 

“My fiance and I met with Kirsten to do our engagement pictures. We had so fun taking pictures! Kirsten was organized and had ideas in mind of how to get the best shots. She was directive at times and also had us just do what was comfortable for pictures. It was a relaxing and fun experience! We got our pictures back so quickly and loved the shots that she took! We used them right away for our invitations and on our wedding website. Thanks Kirsten for such great memories! That same day we talked over many of our wedding details. Kirsten was so warm and friendly. She asked questions about us, how we met, what we wanted for our wedding pictures, and just really got to know us. She focused on what was important to us for our wedding day. Kirsten has offered great suggestions during the planning process and is always available to answer questions. We are so excited to have her take our photos for our wedding!”

JENNELL & ANTON | JUNE 13

“PERFECT FIT FOR US”

“We can't say enough great things about Allison. She was a perfect fit for us.  She made sure we got all the pictures we wanted and remained flexible and calm throughout the day. Her easy-going manner even helped us in remaining calm. Even the children involved in our wedding felt comfortable around her. She was accommodating and proficient. We only had her for 6 hours, but she made it worth our while filling the time with creative pictures along with many of the portrait shots we requested. She kept the schedule in line, so we wouldn't miss any of the important moments. When she wasn't working with us directly, she did a great job of piecing together creative pictures that we are so excited to see. She made our special day even better! A huge thank you to Allison! We would recommend her to anyone getting married!”
