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.
Wow. Another year has come and gone. Photography took me all over the map this season: Las Vegas, Toronto, Victoria, the Sunshine Coast, Banff, Reykjavik and Punta Cana! I rang in the New Year and welcomed 2017 with company of friends in beautiful Copenhagen, Denmark and am now currently in sunny Barcelona, Spain.
Zimone & Ryan took me out to their beautiful home town and we ventured out to Pitt River. See their wedding at West Coast Wilderness Lodge here: http://johnbello.ca/west-coast-wilderness-lodge-wedding-zimone-ryan/
Thank you to all the couples who had me along to document such meaningful time in their lives. I truly love what I do. A special thank you to my friends and talented photographers that helped me throughout the year: Sachin Khona, Geoff Heith, Christine Williams, Daniella Guzzo & Kendra Coupland.
At the end of last year I couldn’t have even imagined the magnitude of positivity that I would experience in 2014. From the Canada Photo Convention’s Top 30 Under 30 nod to multiple placements in the PWPC Contest – the recognition continues to be humbling. Each wedding season seems to bring new surprises and memories that I will hold onto for a lifetime – this year brought me 20 couples, with 20 beautiful stories I was able to capture and be a part of. The opportunity to be a wedding photographer in Vancouver is something I can’t really put into words – thank you to all the beautiful people that have trusted me to document the important times in their lives. A special thanks goes out to my friends, and fellow wedding photographers who have assisted me this year by lending their abundance of talents to many of the weddings in 2014 and letting me join them on their own clients weddings: Sachin Khona, Taryn Baxter, Christine Williams, Michael Wachniak, Edward Lai, Katie Mills, Geoff Heith and Kendra Coupland. The universe has been truly good to me….To 2015 and beyond ~
