Bella Grace Studios was an absolute pleasure to work with!

From the beginning, Josh was incredibly generous with his time (numerous call as we planned our wedding from NYC) and came ready to go with a calm, but super positive attitude on the big day.

He did a fantastic job of capturing all the moments despite multiple venues and a very very large family.  The of our wedding, Josh was a pro at putting us at ease and creating fun and creative poses.  He made our day so relaxing and enjoyable.  We trusted that Josh would capture the important moments of our day, and he did and then some.  So many design and candid moments that I totally missed while enjoying our wedding. 

We could not be happier with our pictures and memories!

The best decision we made in the wedding planning process was hiring Josh to photograph your wedding.  He made everything so perfect and it all seemed so effortless.  Our wedding day was everything I ever wanted, and I am so fortunate it was documented so beautifully.  I was able to really take it all in that day and not worry about the details because of the schedule that Josh helped us establish well before the wedding day.  With his advice and sweet presence that day everything went so well - we will treasure our pictures and memories for the rest of our lives.  Worth every penny!


Lexie + Aaron

When planning our wedding my first priority was photography. It is the one piece of our wedding that would last forever. I searched for months pouring over portfolios of photographers from all over the country! I was on the hunt for a true film Photographer who created romantic compositions, captured natural beauty, and had their own artistic style. When I came across Bella Grace Studios, I was prepared to provide airfare and lodging, only to realize that this New York or LA calibre talent was right down the street from me.

Josh, Thank you for capturing our story, our hearts, and our souls.  We will forever treasure all of the tiny moments you caught


Leigh + Matt

From the moment I saw Josh's work I knew we would be a perfect fit. His ability to capture timeless moments and use of natural light was exactly what i was looking for. He exceeded my expectations not only with the photos but his personal attention to me and my needs on the most special day. I always felt right at home with him and confident I would forever have print of my most favorite memories. I recommend him to all my brides!


Lexy + Clay

Clay and I could not have imagined how immersed you would become in our wedding and could in no way imagine another photographer who would put more time and effort in then you did. 

We are so happy you were the one to capture our most special moments and can not wait to cherish them for the rest of our life.

We are so happy!

I got married this past December and used Josh as my photographer. I heard about him through one of my friends and ever since then, I've been admiring his work. I had referred him to many of my friends who were getting married before me, so it was a no-brainer when it came time to plan my own wedding! 

My family and I chose to have a wedding planner, but honestly, we probably didn't even need the day-of-coordinator there thanks to Josh. He knew what needed to be done and when. Not only could I count on him to take amazing pictures, but he also acted as another wedding planner. 

The day of the wedding Josh showed up super early to go scope out some areas in Cincinnati for our bridal party to get pictures taken. He decided on Ault Park which was less than five minutes from our venue and church. He was FANTASTIC. He stayed at the reception way later than I expected him to, but I am so glad that he did-- he filmed some of the greatest pictures I've ever seen!!

Cole and I loved working with Josh at Bella Grace Studios! Josh is extremely talented and creative. We hired Josh to shoot our engagement session about a year before our wedding- we were immediately comfortable with him and loved our photos. We were so excited about our wedding photos because we knew Josh would do a great job, and we were not disappointed. The photos arrived before they were promised, and the CD contained a great variety of photos from the ceremony, reception, dancing, details, etc. I'm not surprised, because Josh and Shana were everywhere the day of our wedding! They did not miss a thing, showed up so early the day of the wedding, and were very well prepared. Our entire wedding party loved spending time with them, they put everyone at ease and as a result produced natural, beautiful photos of everyone. We love every photo, and are having a tough time narrowing down our favorites. At the last minute we also hired Josh to shoot our rehearsal dinner the evening before the wedding. He did a great job capturing the emotions of the event, and we are so glad to have these photos. I hope we have the chance to work with Josh again in the future, highly recommend the talented people at Bella Grace Studios.


Johnpaul + Ashleigh

We had a great experience with Josh and absolutely LOVE our photos. We loved his style instantly and were excited that he was available to shoot our wedding - I truly don't think anyone could have captured the day as well as he did. It felt like Josh was EVERYWHERE for the whole day (without feeling like he was all over the place - a wonderful photographer trait). He captured all of the smallest details that we didn't even think to ask him to photograph…he noticed everything. We got our photos very quickly and, in looking through them, realized that Josh didn't just take pictures of our wedding day; he captured the magic of the day in every image. We get complimented again and again on our wedding photos and would recommend Josh to anyone.


Shelley + Tom

I could not have asked for a more amazing experience with Bella Grace Studios on our wedding day. Josh & his team are the most talented & thoughtful people to work with. He shoots with both digital & film, & the outcome of the photos are UNBELIEVABLE.. In addition to the insane amount of talent, Josh just understands brides. He came to my parents' house while my bridesmaids & I were getting our hair/makeup done.. It was the one time of the day I was completely overwhelmed, and Josh just knew to not put a camera in my face :). Instead he took photos of my peppy/relaxed bridesmaids - which was so thoughtful & perfect. I HIGHLY recommend Bella Grace Studios, as they have made my wedding experience absolutely unforgettable!
