5 Star “If I could give Amanda and her husband Michael from Dream Bella Photography 10+/5 stars I would. Amanda is beyond incredible. Immediately after our virtual meet-and-greet my husband and I knew that things were going to go amazingly. She eased my pre wedding logistic jitters. The day of our wedding she showed up with a big smile and quite literally worked photographic magic. Many of our wedding guests commented on how lovely she was and how they were impressed with her attention to detail, professionalism and her ability to make people comfortable in front of the camera. She quickly sent us some sneak peak photos which held us over until we got our full album. She was very prompt and her work was stunning. I have looked through the photos half a dozen times already and keep finding new favorites. There are so many I love. If I could have her photograph every big life event of ours I would. If I could grab a drink with her I would!! Too bad we live 3,700 miles away. If you are reading this DO NOT HESITATE! Send Amanda a message to book. You will not be disappointed and your wedding photos will exceed your expectations. We can’t wait to look back on our photos over our lifetime.”

Angelia & Matt

A recap of Angelia+Matt’s gorgeous relaxed beach wedding at Akumal, Mexico

What a pleasure it was to witness and capture the love story of this incredible duo. Their journey began on the dating app Hinge, where they cautiously embarked on a connection filled with playful banter and intrigue. But as their multiple dates unfolded, they just clicked and fell head over heels in love.  On Christmas Eve, Matt, the charming extrovert, proposed with a heartwarming surprise—an engagement ring hidden within a pair of mittens, given as an early gift. Their love story took a beautiful turn, and they eagerly embarked on a lifelong adventure together.  Their bond is that of best friends, inspiring growth and bringing a sense of safety and love. As they step into the realm of marriage, their love story is just beginning, filled with spontaneity and an unbreakable bond.

It was such an honor to be able to capture timeless moments from their special day, as they embark on a lifetime of love, laughter, and beautiful memories. What an extraordinary couple and an incredible journey that lies ahead!
