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.

Sunset over Marblehead, MA

Fort Sewall provided the backdrop to this gorgeous and epic sunset engagement session. Don’t you just love it when everything comes together perfectly? A lot of my couples find me via word of mouth because they have heard great things and have seen my work. I never know what to expect when I meet someone for their engagement photos. Imagine my surprise when the picture-perfect couple with the nautically-inspired outfits came up to me in the parking lot. I love discovering new spots through my couples’ eyes. I get so inspired when I see a new spot for the first time. I hope you’ll enjoy looking through these breathtaking sunset engagement photos.

Katie and Charles chose this special location because Katie grew up nearby and it was her favourite place as a child. They are tying the knot nearby as well. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding. We had so much fun exploring the rocks during low tide. Everyone was taken by surprise when the tide came in so quickly! We were shooting for only 5-10 minutes on the rocks when we realized the sandy beach had turned into about a foot of water. We quickly scrambled off the rocks. Thank goodness I kept my backpack on my back. I was debating leaving it on the sandy floor so that I would be lighter on my feet climbing the rocks. Goodness! That would have been an expensive mistake.

Fort Sewall is located in Marblehead, MA by the seashore. There is an awesome tiny beach with rocks as well as an old historic fort about 5 minutes walk away. There’s a small parking lot for about 20 cars so it was easy to get to and find parking. Just know that traffic there after-work is awful! Google always tells you a time that you should multiply by two for when you’re actually travelling there. Something to keep in mind when planning a session there.

That sky was breathtaking. It was kinda surreal when looking back on the images.

The tide was rising quickly! We had to get off the rocks and back onto the mainland.

But I am opportunistic so I stole a couple of minutes to get these dramatic photos before we ran off.

Working under pressure as the water was rising was an interesting challenge!

Look how happy Charles looked when we finally got off the rocks/water and onto solid ground. I’ll tell you, we were a little stressed out, but the photos were worth it!

The sun set beautifully, but quickly. That’s a wrap.

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.
