Tips for displaying your photos
I'm Bella!

My work has a very editorial look. I am for classic, clean imagery that isn't heavily altered from real life.  My art is created through framing, composition, emotion and connection rather than props and trends.

Featured Photographer Tips by Redfin

Redfin reached out to me a little while ago to share a tip for their new featured article “25 Unique Yet Timeless Ways to Style Your Home with Photos, According to the Pros”. Who better to ask than some of the country’s top-rated photographers to see how we would love to see our images showcased in your homes? There are so many different options when it comes to utilizing your images. It doesn’t have to be just on the wall, or in a book. My top tip is also a budget-friendly way to jazz up an old coffee table and can also be used to jump-start conversations at your next post-COVID get-together!

Classic Black frames with a white mat

This is always my go-to suggestion when families and couples ask how to best showcase their images. You can’t go wrong with this timeless option. When the world moves on from trendy chevron, or Pantone colour of the year 2018, Black will always be in style.

You can go with large frames and large mats. This is a great cheaper way to enlarge your prints without breaking the bank on larger prints. I prefer the bold look of this style to small frames with tiny mats.

Another option is to create a gallery wall whereby you layout a bunch of different frames of differing sizes along a statement wall. This is a great way to add to an existing wall as you add new frames over the years and cannot exactly match a frame from an older purchase.

Inlay Photos on your coffee table

My advice though is a little less traditional! I recommend laying down a bunch of images down on a ratty old console table and then layering a clear glass to protect your photo collage from any spills. Easy and budget-friendly! Each image can then tell a story prompting long conversations when you have guests over. You can easily swap out photos as you add to your memory bank and replace images to guests will always have something fresh to look at.

About me

My path here is a bit different than most. I have a background in engineering and accounting/auditing. Like every good Asian daughter, I wanted to make my parents happy. With my first paycheck I bought a camera. I was instantly addicted to capturing life's details and observing people's interactions. When I moved from Toronto to Boston, I found myself without a job but with a fresh start. I got my first gig off Craigslist (crazy!) and have been fully booked ever since. The family that had booked me on Craigslist still keeps in touch with me to this day and I've photographed them quite a few times since. I've been featured in numerous publications both online and in print (Martha Stewart Weddings, Boston Magazine, The Knot). 8+ years later, you've stumbled onto my page.  

I am candid, communicative and caring. For those that know me, they know I have a pretty wicked sense of humour to get people to relax. My goal always is to ensure you are heard and that you are comfortable throughout the process. In my portfolio you can see each family's genuine happiness and comfort in their body language. It takes a lot to create the environment of trust. The rave reviews from my families afterward show you how much they care about me in return. This environment of trust builds from the beginning and I honestly attract the kindest families that allow me to create consistently strong images with heart in order to tell their story.


Starting in late Summer of 2021, Bella Wang Photography will be offering Studio Sessions in a brand new studio location right in the heart of the South End in downtown Boston.

Currently only accepting clients willing to sign a model release for these special portfolio-building rates.
