D.J. was personable and extremely easy to work with. The results from our session were FANTASTIC! There were so many good shots! We needed his photographic expertise to narrow down our choices. From our initial encounter to the photo shoot, and lastly, to post-production, D.J. guided us along the way, making sure that we were totally satisfied. I recommend using La Bella Vita Photography. You won't be sorry!

The statement "you get what you pay for" could not be more true with La Bella Vita. The photos captured are truly unlike anything you will see from other photographers. D.J. knows just how to capture the personality and uniqueness of his subjects. He worked so hard to make sure that the shots that have been taken over the span of a decade look amazing hanging in my home together.

All three of our sons have had their senior photo shoot done by D.J. Ellis. The results have always been spectacular! He will sit down before the photo session and interview your senior to see what they are all about. He asks them what they'd like to do for their photo shoot but always puts the most creative spin on the session. The photos I have of my sons are priceless!
