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.

Theatre Engagement Session

When Austin + Jen reached out to me to schedule their engagement session, I sent out a questionnaire to get a sense of things that they loved. I do this for all of my couples because I don’t like anything cookie-cutter. I want couples to be able to be themselves in front of my lens. When they wrote back, a few items stood out to me : their love of the movies and basically how they liked to run at things! We managed to incorporate this into our Theatre Engagement Session.

The second item might sound a bit weird, but when you can see how we incorporated that into their session it’ll all make sense. Literally ANYTHING can inspire me, even the smallest of details. So never hold back in telling me what you love to do as a couple!!

AMC Boston

AMC provided the backdrop for these super-cool images. When Austin said he reached out to them for permission, I was 100% on board IMMEDIATELY. It was scheduled to rain on the session date, so we got very lucky that we had a backup plan (which was actually our main plan). I immediately started to brainstorm how to best capture the movie-going experience. We played with ideas and poses and expressions. There were a lot of outtakes because let’s be honest, couples have never done photoshoots before their engagement sessions typically! But I always leave in the outtakes because those are the memories. From awkward hands, the terrible throwing accuracy of Jen (popcorn misses galore) and Austin’s super animated expressions…. they’re all in the delivered set for their enjoyment.

Thankfully, I am pretty familiar with dark interiors and really know how to make things POP! So the results I think are super fun and playful, just like Austin and Jen.

Then we ran outside to do a few of the games in the foyer because they love them!

With so much inspo around us, we had to mimic one of their favourite posters in the theatre!

Theatre Proposal Photos

Jen texted me moments before the session and said she had a surprise for Austin. She wanted to propose to him with a ring she had been holding onto for months. Ummm… of course! At the end when we were about to leave the theatre, I suggested to Jen that the location would be perfectly framed for what she had in mind without hinting to Austin what was to come. How adorable was his reaction?

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.
