Dana is great!
We wanted a simple church wedding/reception package, and Dana obliged. She was calm and professional in the planning phase, and creative, professional AND low key on the wedding day. She captured wonderful settings and emotions on our big day. Dana was wonderful to work with - and we're very happy with our photographs!Sent on 07/06/2019

As soon as my fiance proposed I knew that I would want photographs to document our wedding. As I am from Canada, I was unfamiliar with photographers in the Skagit County and my now husband had no idea either. I decided to look on google and I instantly fell in love with the style of Dana's photographs. I only had a few days left in the Skagit area before I would return to Canada for months so we decided to email Dana to see if she could help us out.Sent on 11/21/2017
She responded immediately and agreed to meet up with us before I would be leaving. Our first meeting was so comfortable and professional, we both could not get over how friendly she was - not to mention how beautiful her portfolio is. She helped us figure out our financing of her time along with the organization of our wedding timeline. We love the gallery she created for our wedding day, especially our First Look photographs.
Dana is a wonderful entrepreneur with true kindness, passion, and ability. We strongly recommend utilizing Dana's talent to achieve classic and romantic photographs of your special day. It is a great investment that you will not regret.

Michael and I were wanting a low key wedding with immediate family only. Dana captured our special day with no hiccups at all. She got great pictures that we will remember forever. We were flexible, and she was too - which made it really easy for both parties! We highly recommend her and will use her for any future special events.Sent on 07/09/2017

Danielle · Married on 09/10/2016
Dana is amazing! She took the time to really get to know us and understand what vision we were looking for. When our original location for engagement photos didn't work out because of the rain, she was able to find a spot for us very last minute!Sent on 03/23/2017
Our wedding was several hours away from the valley and she made the effort to drive out there to scope out the venue months before the wedding! We purchased the package that included a second photographer because it was important to me to get multiple perspectives and capture as many memories as possible. I felt she was as invested in our wedding as we were and she was just as excited for us as our family and wedding party! I would highly recommend Dana for other couples who are looking for excellent photos and great customer service.
Bella Vita Creative's reply:Danielle, I was incredibly honored to be chosen as your wedding photographer. What a beautiful venue and wedding! Thank you for your kind words--this is why I love helping people preserve their beautiful memories!

Dana's photography work is breathtaking, and highly professional. She was able to capture candid moments between people at our wedding, as well as stunning posed photos. She went above and beyond what would ever be expected of a wedding photographer, especially in the preparations leading up to the wedding, ensuring that on the day itself, her work would be seamless. She is professional, as well as personal, in what she offers as a photographer, and really takes the time to care about each person she works with. I would absolutely recommend Bella Vita Creative to a friend! Thank you so much!Sent on 02/15/2016

Dana was an excellent photographer who really captured the personality and the vibe of our small family wedding. The photos are creative and beautiful. Bella Vita was reasonably priced, especially since our wedding was on a national holiday.Sent on 07/16/2015

Selecting Bella Vita Creative as our wedding photographer was a wonderful decision. We love flipping through all the wedding photos now, they bring a huge smile to our faces as we recall the special moments. Dana did a fantastic job capturing the beauty of our outdoor wedding. She caught the important moments documenting our union, as well as candid moments of many of our friends celebrating with us. The photos turned out excellent, Dana has a great eye for outdoor lighting, using natural light to her advantage and, as a designer myself, I thought she did a lovely editing job too. We had a very professional experience with Bella Vita Creative and she made the whole experience feel very special throughout the process.Sent on 03/21/2017
Bella Vita Creative's reply:Carmen, thank you very much for your kind words. Your wedding was unique and gorgeous--such a pleasure to photograph! I hope the images from your wedding will be a precious keepsake for years to come.
