Working with Nick and Giovanna as the dynamic duo behind Bela Foto Studio was a great experience! I had a bit of an odd request in that I was organising it from Washington, DC as a gift for my sister, who just graduated university in Florida. Giovanna and Nick worked with me AND her to ensure I could handle the invoicing while her desired aesthetic and preferences for the shoot were communicated directly between them. Giovanna and Nick provided helpful suggestions for locations, were her "hype men" since she unfortunately had to do most of the shoot without us (we would have liked to participate but #COVID), and all around were really flexible. They kept an eye on the weather and were communicative about the best potential times and dates to get the photos done, were accommodating in providing packages that worked for us, and turned the (BEAUTIFUL) photos around quickly. Not everyone is also able to capture landscapes and darker-toned complexions well, and Giovanna did so and produced great photos that we'll keep for memories for a long time to come. I've already selected one of them to print in large format for my parent's home and the resolution is great. Overall, a very positive experience and transparent, tech-forward process. Everything was handled online through their portal. Added bonus: they take Venmo! Can't recommend Bela Foto Studios enough. Thanks for helping with my project!May 26, 2020Verified

Giovanna did a wonderful job with the photography of a recent remodel project for my website. She was responsible and punctual. The photographs looked beautiful! I look forward to working with her again very soon on several other projects!Dec 13, 2019VerifiedBela Foto Studio's reply
