I just wanted to give everyone a heads up as to our experience with Bella Pictures. We used them to get our photographer and our videographer and the pictures are TERRIBLE! Not only that, Bella isn't taking any accountability for the pictures saying "it's the photographer." We they hire the photographer, so don't let them use this excuse.
The day of our wedding, the photographer was with us from 3pm until 11pm. During that time I had to direct her on what pictures to take...and I should have been prepared. I have ONE picture of each family, and ONE group shot of the wedding party. Plus I only have THREE pictures of my husband and I together. Just 3. And they aren't even that great.
The pictures have terrible backgrounds. We were put in front of a couch and the photographer removed the pillows, throwing them on the floor and apparently leaving them in the shot, because guess what we have in the pictures? These awful pillows thrown on the floor.
Not only that, there is only one shot of my dad and I walking down the aisle, and he's blinking. Wouldn't you take more than one shot? And half of my girls don't have a shot coming down the aisle.
I hope this isn't everyone's experience, I truly do, but my experience was just awful as far as the pictures went. Our video wasn't horrible, it wasn't great, but compared to the pictures I wouldn't complain about it.
Just want to give future brides fair warning...your pictures are the material items that will stay with you forever after your wedding days, and you want them to be beautiful! So I hope they are!
