“It would be an understatement to say Jessica Di Bella is an amazing photographer!!! She showed up early, stayed late and kept us on track throughout the day! She is every bit fun as she is professional! She worked with all my other vendors with utmost respect. She has a graceful way of commanding people's attention and getting the job done right! She made all my friends and family smile...literally! She knows just when to change an angle, adjust the lighting or strike a different pose to get the perfect picture! She is tuned in to all the emotions at hand and even knows when to stop and say a little prayer for the anxious bride :) Im so thankful for how she made me feel so at ease on both my wedding day and during the engagement shoot and I couldn't be happier with how the photos from both turned out! Getting the wonderfully edited pics on our 1 month anniversary was truly a gift!
To all the future brides out there looking for your wedding photographer, I recommend Jessica Di Bella with the highest recommendation to capture the photographs you will treasure the rest of your life! I'm not only blessed to call Jessica my wedding photographer, I'm blessed to call her a friend too!”

"It was a blessing from God that my husband Mark and I met Jessica. We were out at The Ranch Saloon one night when my husband ran into an old friend. That friend turned out to be Jessica's husband, Mario. We all got to talking and getting to know each other, and that is when we found out that Jessica was a photographer. Mark and I didn't think of anything at the time, but it was definitely in the back of our minds. About a month later it was getting down to crunch time for us to find a wedding photographer that was in our price range and finally it clicked that we would ask Jessica what her wedding package options were. We set up a meeting, and instantly my husband I knew that we wanted to use Jessica as our photographer. We could tell that she was so passionate about her work and that she wanted to make sure that we were going to get every detail that we wanted from our wedding. We chose the package with a second shooter-- that way we knew we would get all of the shots that we wanted for our wedding. In the days leading up to the wedding she made sure that every little detail was perfect: location, time, last minute questions that we had, etc. From the start of the wedding day Jessica stayed with the bridesmaid and me, taking the “getting ready” pictures, while her second shooter was taking shots of my husband and the groomsmen. After the ceremony, she was energetic about getting the guests and family excited for pictures, but was also quick to get them done in a timely manner so we could get to enjoying the reception. They didn't miss any detail of our day and captured every moment of our wedding, and were an absolute pleasure to have with us on our special day. I couldn't be happier with how our wedding photos turned out! Jessica completely exceeded our expectations!"

“Gorgeous Photos + Amazing Team!
Jessica is incredible! She photographed our wedding weekend while 8-months pregnant! Her dedication to our family and friends was unlike any other vendor I have collaborated with.
Jessica's style is truly timeless.. She finds a way to capture the romance and joy from each moment by making everyone feel so comfortable. Being that my husband and I are a little camera shy, having someone behind the lens that is able to make you laugh is so, so important! Natural smiles!
Deep, moody, lovely, color-saturated photos + a humble, playful, professional team = Jessica Di Bella Photography. If you have the honor of working with her for your wedding day or any other milestone, you will be extremely happy!
Thank you Jessica!”

“Beaming light of joy!!
If Jessica has availability to shoot your wedding, engagement, elopement, etc., RUN!
Jessica is someone that will make you feel so comfortable and at ease while she's taking the most incredible, raw, emotion driven pictures. She made my husband and I look like models, and captured the essence of our love. She was able to capture moments that I look back on and can't help but cry because I can look at the pictures she took of my husband and I at our engagement shoot, and our wedding and I can remember exactly how I felt.
Forget pinning pictures of other couples on your pinterest "inspo" board, you will have those pictures. Jessica is so talented at what she does. She is able to see light peaking through and position you in a way that you are beaming. She is so fun to be around and gave us the best pictures, we constantly get compliments from. Because of Jess, we are able to proudly display our engagement and wedding pictures because they are so so good. I cannot recommend Jessica high enough, and you will not regret hiring her.
Not only is she insanely talented, she is the kindest, most genuine human who will laugh with you, cry with you, and encourage you beyond "I do". In a world filled with uncertainties, you can rest assured that hiring Jessica will be the best decision you could ever make!”

“We couldn't be more pleased with our engagement and wedding photos!
From beginning to end she really exceeded our expectations. We did our engagement shoot with her, and from the beginning we knew we made the right decision.
She took it to the next level when she delivered our wedding photos. She is so great at catching all the emotions of us and our guests on our special day.
We didn't end up using a videographer at our wedding, and we are so glad we didn't. I highly recommend using Jessica, you better hurry and book her now!”

“Seriously the best photographer I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
Jessica was an absolute pleasure to have as part of our wedding team. She has an awesome attitude and a heart of gold.
She was beyond helpful with many details of our day including holding the train of my wedding dress, carrying bouquets, even fixing my garter.
We look forward to using Jessica for many more events in our future. Her work is out of this world!”

“I have never been so impressed by a vendor! We hired Jessica for our engagement pictures and her warm personality and friendliness convinced us to hire her to shoot our wedding that same day!
After booking her for our wedding, she continued to impress! She went out of her way to send us a card at Christmas time as well as a small gift to show us she was excited for our big day! It was so special! On top of that, I had mentioned to her how I wanted to surprise my husband with some Storm Troopers at our wedding.
Long story short, my plans failed and I couldn't find any who could do it so I let her know it wasn't going to work out. Flash forward a few months to our wedding and she pulled off the impossible by surprising BOTH of us with a storm trooper that she managed to convince to come to our wedding for free. She seriously BLEW us away! If you are looking for a vendor who will honestly make you feel important and not just like another number on her client sheet, Jessica is the perfect photographer for you. And the pictures were just stunning. She gave me an intricate survey before my wedding to describe my ideal wedding pictures and she nailed them.
Truly the happiest day of our lives and a huge part of that was because of her <3”

“I cannot begin to express how pleased and impressed we were with Jessica Di Bella. I found her through a mutual friend and after looking through her Instagram and Facebook photos, I knew I had to have her shoot our wedding! My husband dislikes taking photos so doing an engagement session beforehand really helped calm his anxiety, not to mention we had amazing photos to use for our wedding invitations! She was so accommodating and that’s an understatement! Despite being recently injured in an auto accident, she still found a way to shoot our engagement photos. She wanted to make sure our engagement photos met her high standards. Although she was limping up and down the stairs in Laguna Beach, she was smiling through it all, while taking amazing photos. I have never heard of a photographer who would go to such great lengths for her clients!
Jessica has an innate way of making you feel comfortable and have fun throughout the shoot. She knows what shots she wants and what will look best. On our wedding day, she amazingly tuned out all the chaos. My husband’s family is Cambodian and a few do not speak English. They do not understand American customs and kept trying to talk to us during the shoot. Despite all the interruptions, Jessica stayed calm and focused, still able to get what she needed completed in a timely matter.
She is so caring and passionate. She is exceptionally good at what she does and captured our emotions so beautifully. Her shots never looked too posed but real and authentic. She truly captured US. I highly recommend her and if you have not met with her yet you need to. After working with her, I could not imagine being satisfied with any other photographer!”

“I got married October 9, 2016 and hired Jessica Di Bella as my wedding photographer and was NOT disappointed. I found Jessica through a mutual friend on Facebook that happened to use her for Christmas card photos, and posted a couple photos online. After looking through some of Jessica’s professional photos on her Facebook, and then looking at her website and Instagram, I knew I wanted to meet with her. We had met Jessica in a coffee shop and basically hung out with her for about an hour. She is so down to earth and passionate about what she does, and it showed. We spent time just chatting and getting to know each other, and then she walked us through her services, her pricing, and of course, more sample photos! We loved her style, her story, and her personality so much, and it definitely helped that she was priced right in our price range. We chose her all inclusive package that included an engagement session, which I will tell you is incredibly important as well. It gets all the nerves out of the way, and lets you have one on one time with the photographer. She made us feel so comfortable, and took so many amazing shots, without any awkward posing or cheesiness. In the months coming up to the wedding, Jessica sent us a questionnaire of what we wanted her to capture, which was really nice, but we trusted her on everything. Fast forward to our wedding day. My favorite moment of the day was my first look with my husband. I was completely oblivious to the fact that there were two photographers watching us as I walked up to him. After we had our moment, I looked over to Jessica and saw her and her assistant both tearing up. It was the sweetest thing seeing them emotionally invested in what was happening, and not just there taking photos. The amount of photos that came back to us was beyond what we were expecting, and her online album was so easy to navigate, and very convenient for sharing. I could not have been happier with Jessica as our wedding photographer!”

“Choosing Jessica was a no brainer, my Husband and I had previously met with other photographers and no one was as genuine as Jessica Di Bella was. She was natural with us and wanted to make sure she captured the pictures that were important to us. Leading up to the Wedding, Jessica was super helpful with finding the perfect spot for engagement photos. She made the shoot fun and easy. She made us feel comfortable and we had the best time walking through the fields laughing and reminiscing about how we fell in love. Jessica captured a very emotional moment we had and we are very appreciative for her talent! She went out of her way to know who we were and what we wanted, and because of that the photos came out beautiful and perfectly portraied our personalities and relationship! If we thought the engagement photos were amazing the wedding photos were even better! On the wedding day Jessica was more than a photographer, she was like my 8th Bridesmaid.... she went above and beyond fluffing my dress, fixing my vail, and even wiping sweat from my face. There was a point in the day where I got anxious and Jessica was able to notice and make sure I was ok. I credit Jessica for allowing my husband and I to enjoy our day because we trusted her. She made sure the day ran smoothly and was very professional about keeping the day flowing at a steady pace while we enjoyed every minute! We received our photos way earlier than expected and each one was to die for. The photos told a story and what we loved most was being able to look at each picture and remember the feelings we felt in that moment! I will use Jessica for future photoshoots and would recommend her to absolutely everyone. I can guarantee you will be more than happy with your photos! She was fun, professional, genuine, and super sweet! Thanks Jessica for allowing us to enjoy our special day and be able to relive it over and over again xoxoxo”

“It is hard to put into words how absolutely amazing Jessica DiBella Photorgraphy is. We had the honor of having Jessica photograph our wedding and engagement photos which turned out absolutely amazing! From the very beginning, Jessica was so easy to work with and gave us a ton of advice on timing and what we needed to be prepared for. My husband and I are both camera shy and we were not looking forward to taking pictures the day of. Jessica suggested we do an engagement shoot prior to our wedding and I am so happy she did! It made taking photos on our wedding day so much easier and we couldn’t believe how much fun we ended up having; which is a true testament to Jessica’s character. She is full of so much positive energy that it is infectious. I truly believe she played a huge role in making our wedding day unforgettable. Our bridesmaids, friends and family could not stop raving about how great she was.
We ended up taking our bridal party photos prior to the ceremony and wanted more of a city landscape so we chose to do them in Downtown Santa Ana. Jessica went out of her way to go scout locations and sent pictures ahead of time to make sure we would be happy with the location we chose. We were so happy with the locations she suggested and the photos came out even better than we hoped.
We could not have asked for a more committed, professional and talented photographer to capture one of the best days of our lives. We would highly recommend Jessica and hope to work with her again in the future.”
