I will give you a space to just be.

I hope you will be open,

to give me a space too.

My name is John Bello, and I am a Vancouver wedding photographer that has been documenting weddings for over 7 years in places like London, England, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, Cancun, Mexico and Corfu, Greece.

I’m a big believer in synchronicities and meaningful coincidences.

Life always has its way of bringing people together at the right time and right place, so I am grateful that we have crossed paths!

Your wedding day goes by in a blink of an eye, so I always have the intent that couples should aim to be completely present with each other and their loved ones to make the most of their special day, and put full trust in me to document all of the day’s moments.

Not only is the day about you, I really believe it is about the people around you and the emotions the day carries.

It is important to me to capture these emotions genuinely by both being the fly on the wall, and immersing myself as if I were a guest. 

I strive to create imagery that is

impactful, powerful and meaningful.

 

The best photographs are the ones you can look back on knowing you were completely present & in the moment with the one you love.

It’s such a beautiful thing to have found that someone that gives you a space, a space to be your true and authentic self.

And it’s so special to be that someone to hold space for.

…be present, be mindful,

just be.

“John captured our deepest most vulnerable moments that will forever allow us to relive that very special day.”

Scott & Terri

Vulnerability is courage,
honest emotion is

strength.

Words of affirmation, physical touch and quality time are my love languages.

So it only makes sense that I appreciate couples who value romance and affection.

It’s the fleeting moments of tenderness and thoughtfulness that resonates with me the most.

weddings.

engagements.

Over the course of 8 years of documenting weddings and people, I’ve honed my ability to anticipate the little nuances and big emotional moments of the day and capture them with ease.

I promise to tell your story thoroughly and beautifully.

When you look at your photos, I want you to live vicariously through your loved ones.

You’ll see through the eyes of your family and friends, witness different perspectives, and feel all of the emotions from the celebration.

My editing style is real and honest.

I embrace the vibrancy of colors and the natural beauty in skin tones.

I want you to see the world the way I do.

 

Weddings encapsulate the human emotion spectrum. 

I promise to tell your story honestly and authentically.

 

So let’s just be, together.

 

“Wow, we looked through the photos over the weekend and all we can say is “thank you” and “wow” over and over again.

Your ability to be seemingly omnipresent and capture the moments that really made our wedding so special was clearly seen in all the photos.

We can’t count how many times we said to ourselves, “I’m so glad John was the guy to do this” and “we need to see John again!” during our photo-viewing session!

There is really something very unique and special in the way you can capture the moments that will resonate in the hearts of others, and we’re just happy that there is someone like you out there acting as that source of joy for so many fortunate people.

Thank you again, John, for simply being you. You provided us with the gifts and talents that make your work so special on our wedding day, and for that, we’re truly grateful.”
