2017 VANCOUVER GAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – JOHN BELLO

I’ve been amazingly fortunate to document the most LGBTQ+ weddings I’ve ever had in a wedding season this past year. I am extremely fortunate to have a platform via social media and internet to help bring more light to the idea that love & relationships are beautifully unique. Love cannot be put into a box. We need to evolve our ideas on what love is, and what it should be. Here is a a collection of images of beautiful gay & lesbian weddings and all celebrations under the LGBTQ+ umbrella from 2017.

JOHN BELLO PHOTOGRAPHER 2017

2017 had me starting the year off in Europe, visiting Copenhagen & Barcelona with my best friend. I came back to Vancouver feeling refreshed, inspired and most importantly, excited to take on the new wedding season. This year I got to document the celebrations of many close friends, travel to Niagara Falls to photograph a big gay wedding, and meet some wonderful human beings along the way that are now a huge part of my life. Thank you 2017, thank you to everyone – I am grateful.
