Bellagala Photography - Andrew P.
Andy was the photographer for both our engagement photos and our wedding day! He was absolutely excellent and very professional. You can tell he has a lot of experience and cares so much about his work and making your day perfect. He was very helpful with planning and making sure that we could fit in all our desired pictures within our time frame. It was great getting to work with him for our engagement session first because then we were more comfortable for our wedding photos. He will take any snapshots you want and comes up with super creative ideas on the spot based on your venue, good lighting, outfits, and etc! He was so much fun to work with and made sure that we got all the shots we wanted! We emailed and talked with him via phone a few times before the wedding to make sure everything was planned properly and followed the timeline. He is great at working on the fly and keeps everything stress-free!!! Would recommend 20/10!!!Sent on 10/06/2019

Andrew is amazing
Andrew was nothing short of amazing at our wedding (and engagement session). Andrew very quickly caught onto our wedding party’s vibe and was very fun, enjoyable, efficient, creative and punctual. Andrew really was the whole package and totally delivered for our wedding. Our entire wedding party was totally impressed with Andrews fun and outgoing personality and creative abilities. He was willing to try and of our ideas and totally blew us away with his creative twist on each of them. Just previewing the shots on his camera gave us the goosebumps. We would ten-thousand percent recommend Andrew to anyone getting married.Sent on 11/17/2019

Andrew Parfenov: Amazing photographer
We booked Andrew for our wedding after hearing great things from the Bellagala team. We had planned a Western ceremony and reception at Van Dusen Mansion, but with several tweaks (no wedding party, non-religious ceremony, etc). Andrew took time to discuss the details of our vision and was very knowledgeable about the venue. He worked closely with the Van Dusen staff and other vendors to come up with a good timeline for the day’s proceedings. This made sure we had ample time for photos without feeling rushed through the ceremony or reception.Sent on 01/12/2020
Andrew and Brian, the second shooter, did a great job capturing us getting ready and just hanging out in the mansion. They were able to capture nuances and intimate moments without being intrusive. When it came to couple photos Andrew was very creative, suing the inside and outside of the mansion to highlight our outfits and interactions. We don’t generally like being photographed and didn’t know how to pose for formal photos. Andrew guided us through this process and we are in awe of the final results. He used a lot of his own lighting and was constantly swapping out flashes, lenses, etc. He also had great ideas about using props and taking action shots.
Andrew photographed the ceremony in a deeply personal way, highlighting our important moments without making us look too emotional! He also did a great job with guest photos during the ceremony and cocktail hour. We snuck out briefly during the cocktail hour to take some evening shots and he was respectful of our time and health – it was very cold…
During the reception, speeches and the dancing afterwards Andrew was tireless. He was constantly roaming around getting different shots, interactions, and so on. When the night was wrapping up he was drenched in sweat but visibly happy and engaged. He decided to take a couple of final photos of us near the dancefloor and it is some of our favorite shots of the night. This speaks to his commitment and passion for making the couple look their best.
We are so, so happy with Andrew’s photos and cannot imagine another photographer for our wedding. We would love to take Andrew with on our honeymoon, to family and work events, and just about everywhere we go – his photos are almost better than real life 😊
