“Bella, Bella” An intimate Italian Wedding
This was my first time photographing a wedding at Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood. I’ve always loved church and this one was one of it’s own. Half of the family flew in from Italy. “Awesome, I could practice some italian I just learned over Christmas!” I thought. But when the time came, all I could pull out of my mouth was “Ciao” and “Grazie”. While gathering everyone for some final group shots, I saw Laura’s mom standing beautifully by herself in the sun completely untouched by the chaos that was happening around her. I ran up to her and snap a shot before she realized and showed the photo to her. She smiled kindly, nodded her head and said “Bella, bella” After that, it was “bella, bella” all the way.
