Amazing is the biggest understatement when talking about Belltower Photography! I had been following Belltower's blog on facebook before I got engaged. As soon as I did get engaged, I knew instantly that I wanted Pete and Emily to do our wedding photography.
I have ZERO complaints but I have a TON of good things to say about them! First off, it is great to have two photographers doing your engagement and wedding photos, but it is even better having Pete and Emily as those photographers. They made us feel 100% comfortable throughout the entire process. They really care about making your photos the best ever, and you can see the results of this through their actual photos.
We got our photos back insanely fast and I can't say enough about their communication. Every email was answered right away and always ended in a smiley face. If you are on the fence about using them for your wedding or really anything. Jump off the fence and go ahead and book with them. You will have absolutely no regrets and you will end up raving about them just like I am!

Belltower Photography provided the best service I could have possibly dreamed of. They are a husband and wife team that make your wedding day experience flawless and easy.
My family used them both for my wedding and for my sister's. Neither of us wanted to do an engagement session which was part of the package price, so my sister was given a discount off of her album and I used my engagement session for my signing instead. They were very flexible with meeting with us and accomodating us.
Because there are two of them, Pete went with the groom and his friends for the day, and Emily stayed with the bride and her group for the day. These are some of my favorite pictures. My sister's groom went fishing and my groom went bowling. Pete really captured the feel and happiness of the day.
Before my wedding day I gave Pete and Emily a list of pictures I wanted taken, and they made sure to get everyone of them in. They even got pictures I had no idea they took and they are some of the best ones.
The best thing about them is their easy going nature. They can make you smile and laugh when your picture smile is going stale. And they can change at the drop of a hat. We had all these really cool outdoor pictures planned, but the wind picked up and it got too cold and windy for us to be outside. Within 10 minutes, they had some incredible indoor places scouted. They also go with you with a smile when you change your mind 80million times in a minute.
I highly reccommend Belltower Photography to any bride. They are affordable, their quality of photos are extremely high, and they are incredibly easy to work with. If I did it all over again, I would hire them every time.

Hiring Belltower Photography for our wedding was by far our best decision when planning our wedding. Pete and Emily are the perfect mix of fun and professionalism. They went above and beyond our expectations being with us from the start of getting ready to the stroke of midnight for our New Year's Eve wedding. With their amazing eye for creative photography, the adorable packaging of their photos and the attention to every detail that makes each wedding day unique; they understand each couple has one day to enjoy their wedding but the photos last forever. They capture things during the whole day that as a couple you don't even know occurred. So many incredible moments captured! Don't settle for just photos of your day, Belltower will capture the spirit and energy of your day. You can really see your relationship represented in their photos.
Our wedding party also adored them and said it was some of the most fun and easy wedding party pictures they had been part of.
My favorite thing about Belltower was their attention to detail. I'm a type A personality and I needed photographers who would think as much about the little things as much as they did about the big things. The fact that they both have tremendous photography skills and shoot together throughout the event was a huge added bonus. They were fantastic about communication and answered all my questions throughout the wedding planning process. They even surprised us with a special date night package about a month before our wedding. Such a thoughtful gift and perfectly timed as we were really starting to feel stressed. It was a joy to work with them and completely trusted their ability to capture our day. You won't regret hiring Belltower Photography to photograph your wedding day.

Absolutely amazing. Pete and Emily (a husband and wife team!) were fabulous in capturing the most special moments of our wedding. We couldn't be happier with the candid moments that they caught throughout the day; the pictures they snapped for us are truly priceless!

We loved our experience with Belltower Photography! From the engagement session to the wedding itself, they were flexible and fun. We received everything we wanted and then some. We would definitely recommend them and will probably be using them in the future for other special events!

WOW! Emily and Pete are two truly amazing people who love what they do and it shows! They care about the story of two people falling in love and sharing the couple's story. Pete and Emily were fun to work with and very professional! It was awesome to have two photographers capturing all of the moments of our day. I can't stop looking at my pictures. They are beautiful, all 914 of them! I don't know which ones to choose! Thank goodness Belltower is there to help me decide. Their work does not end after the ceremony. Thank you Pete and Emily for all you did for us! You guys are the best and I wish you nothing but success as you are two wonderful photographers!

Photography was my first priority and largest piece of the budget for our wedding, even above venue. I was even researching wedding photography services before we were engaged. When I narrowed down the many choices for photographers, Belltower was the obvious choice, outranking many of the more established photography services in the area. Belltower outranked the other wedding photographers in value, professionalism, responsiveness, and flexibility.
Value: 2 photographers, no extra charge. With you for the wedding day, not just a limited amount of hours. This is an incredible added value! Compared to other services, you get one photographer for a limited amount of hours on the wedding day. An additional photographer or more hours are a la carte. When I added it up, Belltower's quality was an incredible value in comparison. Looking back at the photos of our day, I would not have been able to choose a "more important" part to be captured. I cherish the "getting ready" candids as equally as the First Dance. With Belltower, I didn't have to choose. It was one less decision to stress over! Additionally, the engagement session is included in Belltower's package. Another added value. Essentially, they captured our story in its entirety, taking the time to get to know our "personality," so they could capture it in our photographs. We also received our photos in their entirety and edited soon after the wedding.
Flexibility: Since they are a husband and wife photography team, they empathized in a unique way that other photographers might not. We changed the location of our engagement session and wedding location at least once. They responded quickly to e-mail/text/phone call, and were always gracious and consistently excited, no matter the indecisiveness. They understand the stress of planning a wedding, and communicating as a couple. They also traveled for both the engagement session and wedding, at an incredible rate, as well.
I was a very picky bride, especially in my photography choice, and I was essentially unable to find fault with the experience and product we received. I constantly receive compliments on our wedding photos, and I've recommended Belltower multiple times in the short time since our wedding. I will continue to recommend, and will use them in the future for other big life events.

Emily and Pete genuinely care about the story of each couple the shoot and take the time to learn it - reference their blog for proof of this! On the day of our wedding they were prepared, professional and organized. They were careful to ensure they understood which shots were must-haves, but also let their creativity lead them.
They were flexible with us in finding the package that was right for us and timely in getting our photos back to us. All around, we had an amazing experience with Belltower Photography and I recommend them to everyone I know. Book them early - they are becoming incredibly busy as word of mouth begins to circulate!

I can say without a doubt that one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning was hiring Pete and Emily as our photographers. We LOVE our photos, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!!
They did such a wonderful job with our photos and reflected our wedding day in such a beautiful way. Amongst all the stress that went along with getting ready for the wedding day, it was such a blessing that I didn’t have to worry about how the photos would happen on the day because they were so attentive to have all the details planned out weeks in advance. “Customer service” is such a big thing to me, and I was really impressed with how professionally they conducted themselves and how attentive they were to questions we had along the way. At the wedding we were actually getting comments from our guests with how impressed they were with our photographers – and they hadn’t even seen the photos yet!
Along with the great photos, Emily and Pete have such warm, fun personalities that they were just a joy to work with. All around, it was just a great experience having them as our photographers. We can’t wait til we have another occasion to have a photo shoot with them!!
