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.

Classic Summer Wedding

Katie & Charles’ July 25th wedding was my first big wedding in 2020. What a crazy year it ended up becoming. Since COVID19 hit in March, everything has been a whirlwind of communication with our couples, rescheduling if needed and figuring things out if things were indeed moving forward as originally planned. It’s taught me a lot about thinking quickly on my feet and adapting to best serve my couples. This was my first wedding after Coronavirus struck, but I was relieved when I saw how large the grounds were at The Estate at Moraine Farm and learned that the reception would be outdoors and inside a large tent.

COVID19 and 2020

Katie is really organized so she was keeping an eye on the Governor’s mandates regarding wedding sizes. She estimated we would be in phase 3 by the time her big wedding date rolled around, so we were green light from pretty early on. She nailed the timeline.

Katie and Charles ordered a bunch of coloured bracelet for guests to wear to signify their comfort level in terms of contact given the pandemic we were currently experiencing. “Green” equalled fair game, “Yellow” caution and “Red” was please be careful and keep your distance to the recommended guidelines. I thought this was such a unique touch. You can see the guests wearing them in the cocktail images:

Social distance coloured bracelets

During the church, everyone wore their masks which was nice to see. There were no issues and everyone was respectful. It added a very documentary element to the wedding since this (hopefully!) is a once in a lifetime experience and those moments should be a part of the story.

Moraine Farm provided the backdrop to the stunning outdoor ceremony. Since we were outdoors and in Phase 3, the wedding guest list could be up to 100 people. Katie’s guest list was 98, plus yours truly and my partner Edward. Everyone was in great spirits the whole day. I’m sure it was a welcome change and distraction from the world around us. For me personally, it was the first time I had been around that many people since last November!

The Estate at Moraine Farm

The Estate and Gardens at Moraine Farm were stunning. I was thrilled at how much space there was in the venue and the grounds were well kept – perfect for photos! And given the current pandemic, the presence of a large swath of land outdoors (+ good weather!) made it much more comfortable for everyone.

Classic Couple Portraits at The Estate at Moraine Farm

Katie requested classic wedding portraiture and that was the style I created. Every couple has their own vibe and I strive to ensure it translates in the poses and frames I create.

We ducked away for 15 minutes to create these images under a nearby tree.

I love it when I’m given time to create. Then I can make something special for couples. I love great light so I tell couples when the right light is available and we sneak away.

The epic image below is a panoramic photo made up of over 20 individual images stitched together. If you want to look up the technique, it’s called a Brenizer.

Sunset Portraits

I requested 5-10 minutes to get all of these images. I believe it adds a lot of variety for my couples’ galleries. During a slow moment in their reception, I scope out a location ahead of time so that the couple is only removed from their wedding for a few moments. I plan out my photos as much as I can and adjust given the couple’s mood. I try to be as efficient as possible because the wedding day isn’t all about photos, but at the same time you still want epic photos to remember your day by. It’s a hard balance for photographers, but I do my best to deliver an incredible level of service for my couples. I adapt and adjust depending on the needs of the day.

The Estate at Moraine Farm Wedding Cost

This wedding venue is a Trustee site and they seem to be very forthcoming about their pricing. With a little research, I dug up the cost of their weddings and it seems to start around $100 per guest. The fees incurred will be the venue rental as well as a tent rental if you plan on having a tented reception. For a New England wedding, you definitely want a tented event! You never can predict the weather. For a pricing link, head HERE.

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.

You've undoubtedly have heard of "golden hour". I explain in detail as to why light is everything and allows me to create the images I'm known for.
