the best in the business
San Francisco, CA (Vocus) September 30, 2010
Bella Pictures has partnered with famed celebrity wedding photojournalist, Denis Reggie, to capture the wedding of Today show wedding couple, Melissa McMillan and Jeremy Gebhart. For the very first time, throughout the live televised broadcast on NBC’s Today show, beginning shortly after 8:00 a.m. (EST) today, the Bella Pictures team will edit and begin uploading images from the wedding in real time, and will broadcast them at bellapictures.com and TODAYshow.com simultaneously. To see additional behind the scenes images from the pre-wedding rehearsal event and to read insider observations, visit http://www.bellapictures.com/blog. Qualified media may gain access to wedding photos by contacting pr(at)bellapictures(dot)com.
Denis Reggie is the most celebrated wedding photographer of our time. Anointed “the best in the business” by Oprah Winfrey and dubbed “the great wedding photographer of our day” by Town and Country magazine, Denis Reggie may be best known for capturing the single most viewed and most iconic wedding image of our lifetime: John F. Kennedy Jr. kissing the hand of his bride, Carolyn Bessette. Although he enjoys a wide celebrity following, Denis’ vision is to offer all brides the same opportunity to access his famed photojournalistic approach, and to provide super luxurious wedding albums and videos that document the defining moments unique to each wedding couple’s special day. “All brides deserve to be a celebrity on their wedding day. The bride is the focal point of the wedding, and my approach is to document the special moments as they naturally unfold,” said Reggie. “Bella Pictures is already known for their photojournalism and their great service and style, so the partnership was a perfect fit for this exclusive experience,” he added.
Bella Pictures has single handedly transformed the wedding photography experience for almost 20,000 couples by offering a high level of customized service. It is the single largest photography network of photographers in the country. “It’s actually harder to become a Bella-certified wedding photographer than it is to get into Harvard, and that’s something we’re very proud of,” said Tahra Makinson-Sanders, vice president of photography at Bella Pictures. Since fewer than 5 percent of applicants actually make it into Bella’s elite network of 700 certified wedding photographers, the analogy holds true.
Starting today, brides can choose the Denis Reggie Experience exclusively at Bella Pictures. The Denis Reggie Experience is for couples seeking the Denis Reggie photojournalistic imprint and for those who want wedding keepsakes that are produced at the highest level of quality and design. They are personally overseen by Denis Reggie and reflect his own unique and exacting standards of a clean, understated, and elegant storytelling perspective.
