Perfection! I could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day. Sylvia was a dream to work with from the moment we were introduced. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple, and it's clear from the finished product that she was paying attention!... Read More Sylvia was very open minded and flexible giving attention to all of our special requests and concerns. On the actual wedding day she jumped right into action and gave me, husband and our families exactly the direction we needed to ensure beautiful photos. My personal favorites are the candids she caught throughout the ceremony and reception. She literally captured every guest and every moment! I would highly recommend Bella Photo for all couples looking for a wedding photographer. You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I couldn't be happier! Sylvia is an absolute sweetheart, and a magnificent photographer! Not only were they so accommodating and patient, but they were true professionals. My biggest pet peeve at weddings is when the photographers are practically on top of the... Read More couple to get pictures. Sylvia and BiBi were never intrusive, and practically invisible all while getting such incredible photos. I received a beautiful album, and a bundle of prints that are to die for! Her packages are extremely reasonable too! I would recommend BellaPhoto again, and again, and again! We cannot thank them enough for making our special day extra special, and so memorable!

I was the Maid of Honor in my sister's beautiful September wedding. Silvia was amazing to work with! She is not only a very talented photographer, she has also been very easy to communicate with before, during and after the event. We had a lot of opinionated people with a lot of...

She was super at striking just the right balance in making spur of the moment ideas happen while staying true to her understanding of what the bride and groom want as well as adding her own creative perspective. That is a rare gift. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars!

We were searching for a wedding photographer with a photojournalistic style who could provide services within our limited budget. I found Bella Photo after doing several searches through wedding vendor websites. Something I really liked about this company is that the package... Read More prices were listed on the website. It is frustrating to contact photographer after photographer only to learn that their prices are way beyond your budget. After noting the reasonable prices, I contacted Bella Photo and Sylvia responded promptly to my email. We scheduled a time to meet at her home studio. As soon as we met Sylvia, my husband and I were impressed by her warmth and personality. When you speak to her you feel like you are talking to an old friend and she puts you at ease. She listens as you tell her your love story and she somehow remembers every detail of what you tell her. We learned this later when she surprised us with a personalized wedding website about our big day with the smallest details of our story beautifully laid out alongside photos of us. Sylvia takes beautiful photos and offers a variety of services. She is very flexible and accommodating. On our big day she helped guide us to do shots beyond what we would have come up with on our own and they turned out great. Sylvia even stayed a little beyond the time she was hired in an effort to provide as many special photos as possible. She contacted us soon after the wedding to tell us our items were ready and I was brought to tears by the moments captured in her photographs. She catches both candid shots and expertly posed moments perfectly. The photo book she created is something we will treasure. Sylvia offers her talents at very inexpensive prices without sacrificing quality. If you are looking for someone who will capture beautiful moments while keeping your special day stress free, look no further than Bella Photo.

If you simply meet with Sylvia you will be impressed by her professionalism, intuitiveness and warmth.

I love what I do. I think as a wedding photographer there's something meaningful about being a storyteller on a couple's wedding day. The day is filled with love, and emotion which lends itself for some incredible moments to photograph. I, along with my team get the privilege to tell those stories through our lenses, and with our style, and how fun is that! Videography is no different, and I did I say, I have a great team? ha! I am grateful to be in this industry for over 10 years giving couples beautiful memories, great service, and having fun along the way!
