They are a husband and wife team who both photograph the event which gives you a huge range of photos. We ended up with beautiful posed shots and perfect candid ones. Mona and her husband were extremely professional. They were flexible and had great ideas for photos when the rain came toward the end of the reception. It was a pleasure to work with them.
Ciao Bella Photography did a fantastic job on our wedding. We didn't want to spend forever on photos so we could enjoy mingling with our guests, and they completely respected our wishes, yet we have a ton of amazing photos. Their system of having photos online makes it very easy for family and friends to go through and pick the photos they like, download them on their own, and make their own prints as they choose. Their prices are very reasonable, the quality is high, and they are funny, pleasant people who are great at what they do. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer.
Ciao Bella Photography is amazing! They provided wonderful pictures and even specially prepared a few extras for us when it turned out a few people had closed eyes. They were creative and flexible throughout the day. Then, to top it off, Mona sent me an amazing surprise gift! I always had quick email responses and they were punctual to the rehearsal and event. I would highly recommend them! In fact, we are hoping to get pregnant, and we are hoping to work with them again for our next special event.
Mona and Dan were so amazing! They were attentive and professional. They were excited to be there and genuinely love what they do. They were running around the reception to ensure they captured every special moment. I would recommend them to anyone.
Wonderful...Mona and Dan were fantastic. They went above and beyond our requests and exceeded our expectations. We will be recommending them to all our family and friends. Very professional and I will definitely use them again.
Ciao Bella did a great job taking pictures of us, our parents, the wedding party and of the guests!!! The pictures look absolutely beautiful!! Thank you so much for making our Wedding day perfect!!

Dan and Mona from Ciao Bella Photography were such an amazing addition to our special day. We planned a wedding in Virginia while living in Florida and Mona had no issue with communicating with us regarding our plans and photography needs in any possible way. We spoke over the phone, emailed frequently and she even went out of her way to accommodate meeting us the few times we traveled up for planning purposes. They were informative, responsive and assisted us with great ideas on how to make our wedding celebration picture perfect! They are personable, talented and their services are very responsible for the quality they provide. I would recommend Ciao Bella Photography to anyone in the Warrenton VA area! We would happily use Dan and Mona in the future for other photography needs.
Ciao Bella Photography is a terrific value, and a wonderful vendor. Mona was great to work with. Ciao Bella did both our engagement photos (included with our venue reservation) and wedding photography, and we're very happy with both. The value is outstanding, especially compared to other photographers we looked into, and Mona was able to get great photos, even when the weather wasn't exactly cooperating. She got both good formal family photos and candids at the wedding, and pictures that we feel really reflect us as a couple in our engagement shoot. She was also very flexible with both the location (virtually anywhere in the DC area!) and date of our engagement photos when our original date was rained out.
In addition to the photos being available for download on their website, Mona also mailed a DVD of photos not just to me, but also to my mother and mother-in-law, and to the groom's grandmother, who had chatted with her at the wedding.
Wedding photography was one of the most important elements to us, because the photos last long after the wedding day. We are very glad we picked Ciao Bella.
Ciao Bella Photography has just completed their FOURTH family wedding in our family! Ciao Bella is wonderful, always prepared, always on time and efficient, always creative, terrific with both large and small wedding parties and awesome with many different family personalities and different family dynamics! Ciao Bella goes above and beyond in what they deliver and always surprise and awe us with amazing family moments.
Ciao Bella is a Husband and Wife team who are two of the nicest people we have ever met. They did our Engagement, Ceremony, and Reception pictures. We were so happy, all of the pictures turned out great! They really took the time to capture each moment and showed they cared about our special day. They are very accomodating and flexible. Overall, great value, service, and quality. Wonderful photographers; we will be using them again in the future for family photos.
Mona is absolutely amazing! Beautiful photos, laid back, and so very creative! I now use her for all my photography!
They are amazing!! They are open to any photo ideas that you have, but they have a ton of ideas themselves! Very reasonable and price and this duo is the best by far! I would highly recommend them for anyone who needs a photographer for any kind of celebration!!
Ciao Bella Photography is a wonderful group, and we were delighted that Mona & Dan took our wedding photos! Their prices are very reasonable, and because we were referred to them by our venue, we received a free engagement photo session. Mona and Dan were very responsive throughout our planning process. Dan came to our rehearsal dinner to work out any kinks and figure out where we will shoot the important wedding day photos.
Mona & Dan have done many weddings at our venue and were very knowledgeable regarding the scenery, lighting, etc. We felt very comfortable with them, and had fantastic photos as a result! We received our proofs & CD relatively soon after the event, as well as a few display items. Overall, we were SOOO pleased to have Ciao Bella shoot our wedding photos and help us capture all of the excitement surrounding our wedding!
You won't find a better photographer, especially for the $$!! Mona and Dan were so great to work with, they made everything about our wedding day easy and stress free. The quality of the photos are AMAZING and so beautiful, they caught many special moments that were "in the moment" and I am so thankful they were able to capture for us to remember for many years to come. I was an out of town bride trying to plan my wedding from across the country and Mona even offered to give some suggestions on other vendors in the area and was so pleasant throughout the entire process! Also one thing that we thought was extremely endearing was the fact that this husband and wife team worked so well together, they were truly an inspiration on our wedding day of married life with the "I got this one hun" type of comments that just helped to give a great warm feeling about them. We could'nt have been happier with our entire experience with Ciao Bella Photography!! Great photos, great attitude, great price, and good people....it just doesn't get better :)
An amazing and wonderful couple! Mona and Dan were extraordinarily both professional as well as fun. They made it easy to take pictures, almost natural at times, and their pictures are some of the most beautiful I could ever imagine (no, not "just because" of myself or my husband!) I've had so many compliments about how beautiful the pictures are, but also how great the photographers were before, during, and even after the wedding! I recommend Ciao Bella Photography for any and all wedding venues!
Great company. I love the fact that is family owned. Mona and Dan are wonderful. The day of Mona was pushed and pulled by my bossy family and she survived with a huge smile on her face the whole time. They did are engagement photos as well and the quality is great. The price is extremely reasonable and very affordable. We love them and cant wait to use them for any occasion!
