NASHVILLE & SAN FRANCISCO WEDDING & event PHOTOGRAPHY

This is where your story begins. This is a journey of laughter & love-let's keep it that way. We're here to document this moment for you just exactly as it is. No crappy filters. No awkward poses. Just you two-being silly in love and making out here and there.

Welcome

LOVE IS WILD. LET'S CHASE IT.

About

01. our philosophy

This is Bellalu Photography & it's my pride & joy. I'm here to encourage, document & create beautiful images that are true to the people you are & the vibe you're creating on your wedding day. Marriage is rad but weddings can be a little stressful. I'm a staunch believer that they don't have to be. Natural light is my happy place & a relaxed couple at ease with me is my jam. I've been telling people's love stories for over a decade. It's what I live for. I don't pose or control. I direct & let it be-that's where the good stuff lives.

WHO AM I?

03. FEATURES

While we do think we're pretty awesome we also know that our aesthetic and approach to shooting is as unique as we are. There are a LOT of photographers in the world each with their own approach for their craft. Here's how we roll:

First and foremost, love is a big deal. We totally get that. But people don't always feel cozy in front of the camera showing it. Laughter is the basis of all of our photography. People feel the most comfortable when they are not trying to "look" a certain way so we simply don't ask them to. Directing our couples into the right light with the right angles is our job-once you're there we just let it be and see what happens. Our favorite clients are the ones who claim they  "don't look good" in front of the camera because inevitably they're the ones that are the most blown away at how effortless it can be.

Wedding days are stories to us. We don't follow the typical "primary/second shooter" model. We shoot with 2 complete primary shooters who shadow both sides of the couple from the beginning to the end. That's part of how we make sure we're not missing anything. If pretty moments are happening-we're going to be there capturing them. By having such complete coverage from all angles we're able to take our time with our couples and let the day play out organically while we hide in corners shooting over your shoulder or through the window light.

You can see plenty of highlights on this lovely site but to get a total view of what we do ask to see a full wedding day documented through our eyes & imagine how we might tell your beautiful story.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

THIS IS WHERE WE TELL YOU HOW AWESOME WE are.

These images are everything. How you managed to capture everything so perfectly & yet make it so simple is absolutely amazing. We will never be able to thank you enough for these precious memories.

"We just sat and watched the slideshow of our wedding 6 times in a row. I don't even know what to say. You have a gift-truly. You captured moments I didn't even know happened. Everything was such a blur! To be able to go over these images again and again is like reliving the most amazing day of our lives."

First and foremost we love to travel. That being said we typically split our time between California & Tennessee so you will most often see our work in and around those areas. We don't have a travel fee for either locations either.

FAQs

where are you located?

This is not a hobby for us rather this is our career. We pay taxes, hold licenses, have back ups for our back ups & keep insurance to protect our clients and deliver an incredible experience for them while supporting our own families. For all of these reasons we are strict on our budgets. That being said we do custom design packages all the time to fit the needs of our couples. Nothing is outside the realm of possibility. We do offer 10% military discounts for brides & grooms who are in the armed forces so please let us know if that's something you could use-we would love to capture your day.

Do you offer discounts?
