Ciao Bella Photography is amazing! They provided wonderful pictures and even specially prepared a few extras for us when it turned out a few people had closed eyes. They were creative and flexible throughout the day. Then, to top it off, Mona sent me an amazing surprise gift! I always had quick email responses and they were punctual to the rehearsal and event. I would highly recommend them! In fact, we are hoping to get pregnant, and we are hoping to work with them again for our next special event.

Dan and Mona from Ciao Bella Photography were such an amazing addition to our special day. We planned a wedding in Virginia while living in Florida and Mona had no issue with communicating with us regarding our plans and photography needs in any possible way. We spoke over the phone, emailed frequently and she even went out of her way to accommodate meeting us the few times we traveled up for planning purposes. They were informative, responsive and assisted us with great ideas on how to make our wedding celebration picture perfect! They are personable, talented and their services are very responsible for the quality they provide. I would recommend Ciao Bella Photography to anyone in the Warrenton VA area! We would happily use Dan and Mona in the future for other photography needs.

Ciao Bella Photography is a terrific value, and a wonderful vendor. Mona was great to work with. Ciao Bella did both our engagement photos (included with our venue reservation) and wedding photography, and we're very happy with both. The value is outstanding, especially compared to other photographers we looked into, and Mona was able to get great photos, even when the weather wasn't exactly cooperating. She got both good formal family photos and candids at the wedding, and pictures that we feel really reflect us as a couple in our engagement shoot. She was also very flexible with both the location (virtually anywhere in the DC area!) and date of our engagement photos when our original date was rained out.

In addition to the photos being available for download on their website, Mona also mailed a DVD of photos not just to me, but also to my mother and mother-in-law, and to the groom's grandmother, who had chatted with her at the wedding.

Wedding photography was one of the most important elements to us, because the photos last long after the wedding day. We are very glad we picked Ciao Bella.

Ciao Bella Photography is a wonderful group, and we were delighted that Mona & Dan took our wedding photos! Their prices are very reasonable, and because we were referred to them by our venue, we received a free engagement photo session. Mona and Dan were very responsive throughout our planning process. Dan came to our rehearsal dinner to work out any kinks and figure out where we will shoot the important wedding day photos.

Mona & Dan have done many weddings at our venue and were very knowledgeable regarding the scenery, lighting, etc. We felt very comfortable with them, and had fantastic photos as a result! We received our proofs & CD relatively soon after the event, as well as a few display items. Overall, we were SOOO pleased to have Ciao Bella shoot our wedding photos and help us capture all of the excitement surrounding our wedding!

You won't find a better photographer, especially for the $$!! Mona and Dan were so great to work with, they made everything about our wedding day easy and stress free. The quality of the photos are AMAZING and so beautiful, they caught many special moments that were "in the moment" and I am so thankful they were able to capture for us to remember for many years to come. I was an out of town bride trying to plan my wedding from across the country and Mona even offered to give some suggestions on other vendors in the area and was so pleasant throughout the entire process! Also one thing that we thought was extremely endearing was the fact that this husband and wife team worked so well together, they were truly an inspiration on our wedding day of married life with the "I got this one hun" type of comments that just helped to give a great warm feeling about them. We could'nt have been happier with our entire experience with Ciao Bella Photography!! Great photos, great attitude, great price, and good people....it just doesn't get better :)

An amazing and wonderful couple! Mona and Dan were extraordinarily both professional as well as fun. They made it easy to take pictures, almost natural at times, and their pictures are some of the most beautiful I could ever imagine (no, not "just because" of myself or my husband!) I've had so many compliments about how beautiful the pictures are, but also how great the photographers were before, during, and even after the wedding! I recommend Ciao Bella Photography for any and all wedding venues!

They were very responsive from day 1. I was surprised they wanted to come to the rehearsal to make sure they knew what the light would be like on the day of the wedding and to touch base one last time about any specific photos that we wanted. The value for the photos and service we received was unparalleled. We could not have asked for more at a more affordable price. I went to multiple weddings after mine and the photographer was always in the way of the most important moments. Ciao Bella was everywhere and yet you never knew it.

They captured so many memories that when I look at some of the candid shots, I know what I was thinking or what was going on! The pictures are coming out beautifully and I am receiving many compliments on them! I can't wait to see how the rest turned out! Thank you again Mona and Dan! A big plus for me is that they are very budget friendly and super nice!!

WOW- that's about the best way to describe my experience with Mona and Ciao Bella. Mona was incredibly easy to work with. She was professional and responsive. I highly recommend her company.

Most importantly, I felt relaxed with her the minute I met her. That made the entire wedding day experience so much more fun and comfortable.
We had an evening wedding in a chapel that was all glass. The lighting was strange and the reflections were problematic. Mona shot some great shots even with the difficult environment! Thanks

There is so much to say about this wonderful couple! I must say, I could not be more pleased with what we got from Ciao Bella... We had our engagement pictures done by them as well as our wedding photos. They were willing to drive all the way to our house to take our engagement pictures and then drove around with us to get some great shots in different corn fields and wheat fields... They were just stunning!! Our wedding pictures are just gorgeous! The quality is amazing and they are not just photos, but they are truly captured moments of a day that we will both never forget!! They went above and beyond for us and they were SO easy to work with!! For the price, you cannot beat it AND you get TWO photographers instead of one! I highly recommend Ciao Bella Photos to anyone that is planning a wedding or family portraits!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Dan and Mona!! :-)

The team at Ciao Bella photos is wonderful. My pictures came out beautiful, and the value for the cost cannot be beat. Being that they are a husband and wife team, you actually get 2 photographers for the price of one. They are very easy to work with and came out to the rehearsal dinner to get a feel for the venue. They are open to requests for shots. I felt my pictures were a great mix of candid and posed shots. I would recommend them to anyone.

Mona and her husband, Dan, were a pleasure to work with! They provided both our wedding photography and did an engagement photo session with us as well. The quality of their pictures is stunning. I have many photos which look like they belong in a magazine! They are easy going, flexible, and have a wonderful eye. We looked at several photographers and the cost of their services, combined with what they offer, cannot be beat throughout the whole Northern Virginia, Rappahonnack Valley Area. I would encourage everyone to use them, not only for wedding, but for any other photos you may want taken. Excellent.

I could not have been more pleased with the services provided by Mona and Dan. They are a pleasure to work with and the quality of their photos are incredible. They know what they are doing and it shows in their work. We had the engagement session and used them for the wedding. Although I have not yet picked out my photos for the wedding album, the photos they posted on the website are great. Lots of posed and candid shots. I had several people comment on how much they loved the photographers. Anytime someone asked them to take a photo, they dropped what they were doing and immediately took the requested posed picture. They were a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to dig through all of the photos they posted and pick the photos for my album! Also, I interviewed 10 other photographers before chosing Mona and Dan. They, by far, offer the best package and value for cost. Highly recommended!!

The photographers of Ciao Bella Photos were great to deal with. They were very good with communication prior to and post wedding. Provided ample amount of references that were more than happy to give a glowing review. The quality of service was outstanding. We had a very strict wedding coordinator assigned to us from our church, but both photographers were able to work with everything with no problems. The quality of their photos are outstanding. The value for the amount to services that we received was amazing. My husband and I were extremely satisfied with their professionalism, quality, value, and flexibility.

I could not have found better photographers than Mona and Dan. They covered everything from posed family shots to hundreds of candid shots of the ceremony and reception. Their photos are gorgeous and they were so easy to work with. Mona also did our engagement photo. All of this for a very reasonable price!

My husband and I could not be more pleased with the service from Ciao Bella Photos. We were first introduced to Ciao Bella Photos (Mona & Dan) at a wedding they did for family members of ours. Then it was our turn and we went with Mona and Dan. 2 years later, and an addition to our family and we are still using Ciao Bella Photos for our family photos. The quality of service is the best, they really make you feel like celebrities. The communication service is great also. The cost, I can guarantee you, you will NOT find anyone close to their great deal, along with the great service. I would highly recommend Ciao Bella to anyone. The best part out of this is a friendship was established with great people! Keep up the good work Ciao Bella Photos!

We couldn't have been any more pleased with Ciao Bella Photography. Mona and her assistant (she told us she uses two photographers for every wedding) were an absolute pleasure to work with. They documented the event instead of trying to direct it, which was a must for me--I can't stand bossy photographers! (Horror story time: My cousin got married in October 2006, and their photographer was a nightmare. He was pushy, bossy, in your face, and rather rude. The pictures did turn out beautifully, but now they have the memories of this jerk marring the day.) Far from the ordeal that some less personable photographers can make them, even the posed photos were a breeze with Ciao Bella; the photographers' flexibility ensured that at no point did they bring the proceedings to a grinding halt "to get pictures." They went with the flow of the day in the best possible way.

Another good thing about Ciao Bella is that they give you the option of purchasing the rights to the digital images, which they will give you on CD to do with as you wish. A lot of photographers don't even give you the option of buying the rights/negatives (in the case of regular film) because they want to squeeze every last drop out of you by charging for prints. Ciao Bella will happily sell you prints and albums and such, but we were extremely happy to be able to buy the rights so we can shop around and do whatever we like with our pictures.

I would happily recommend Ciao Bella to anyone planning a wedding in the area. Their courtesy and skill added nothing but happy memories to our wedding day, and we have some beautiful photos to treasure forever.

Mona and Dan were a pleasure to work with. They have a great product and value for the area and would highly recommend them to anyone especially if you are looking for both of those things! Both our engagement and wedding pictures turned out wonderful. Also, they arrived to our wedding earlier than they needed to and got some extra shots of the bridal party getting ready, which was great. They really are committed to their service and take pride in what they do. I would highly recommend Ciao Bella!

I really enjoyed working with Mona for my wedding photos. She is such a warm and comfortable person to be around, I felt like she was family. She and her husband took absolutely beautiful pictures at our outdoor wedding. She went out of her way to make sure the lighting was going to work out given that our wedding was at dusk. Our engagement photo session was great, she went to a special park that we both loved and took some very creative shots with unique lighting. We looked for a long time for a photographer and were very worried about the high prices we were finding. Mona definitely was a better value than most and I feel that her pictures were completely professional and beautifully done. I'd recommend her to everyone!

Ciao Bella Photography did an incredible job with the photography for my wedding! I was planning the wedding from a distance and they were very patient with the numerous questions I had throughout the wedding planning process. I really liked the fact that one of the photographers came to the rehearsal to see how the process for the wedding would flow and to plan ahead in terms of where the best positions for taking pictures would be. I also though it was great that there were two photographers, allowing for two different angles of the same scene. It rained most of my wedding day, but I was impressed at their professionalism and ability to improvise on where and when to take pictures, since we weren't able to take as many outdoor pictures as originally planned. I couldn't have been happier with the way all of the pictures turned out; I've had such wonderful compliments on my wedding pictures! The Ciao Bella photographers even surprised me with a special photo album of some of my favorite pictures in the mail that I didn't even order. I highly recommend Ciao Bella Photography!

Mona & Dan were great to work with. They handled a gray rainy summer wedding day very well! The wedding was at a Remington, VA venue where they had worked before so that was helpful. Their wedding services are great value. On the day their teenage daughter was also there as an assistant and was very professional - it was great to have so many people to help with the photos.

Mona and company at Ciao Bella were a pleasure to work with and a great value. We did a combination of indoor and outdoor pictures and were very happy with the results. Ciao Bella was very flexible with how we used them, taking pictures of friends, family, and of course the bride and groom. The pictures were unique, original, and expressed the fun we all had that day. The combination of our own web based album and CD of pictures in the mail allowed us to created our own photo book for family. Thanks, very happy with the results on our special day.
