I grew up in a family where having an entire room of your house dedicated to photos was normal. I am a self-proclaimed dork…and proud of it. I am obsessed with office supplies and containers. I love chick flicks and know every line to Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I love food…I really love food. Even though my ideal night out is a fancy dinner with my fabulous husband Jerry, I would eat a family size box of macaroni and cheese with a side of gummy bears for every meal if I could. Our three dogs are my babies.
My other baby is this photography business. For me, it’s not just business, it’s personal. When a groom and bride-to-be book me as their wedding photographer, they’re not just clients. They become one of “my couples,” and some have gone on to become some of my best friends. Although my main goal is obviously to have beautiful photos to tell the story of your wedding day, I believe the experience you have as one of my couples is just as important.
Why I do what I do:
"Bolla photography is amazing! Simonne is wonderful and really takes the extra time to get to know her clients. She went above and beyond my expectations. You can really tell she enjoys her work and cares for her clients!" –Tori R.
"LOVE LOVE LOVE Bolla Photography! Simonne was such a joy to work with and we love our pictures and wedding album." –Kristen L.
"You guys were so awesome!! It felt like having old friends shooting our wedding!" –Andy Z.
"Bolla Photography delivered superb photos of our wedding day. Owner Simonne has a special blend of creativity, talent, and technical knowledge, and that shows through in every photo she produces. She was the best fit for us, and the images she captured of our big day will be treasured our entire lives…. Even our wedding party and families mentioned to me how wonderful she was to work with. She was excellent, and the perfect fit for our big day." –Melissa K.
"Simonne’s work speaks for itself. The shots of our wedding are beautiful, and we are so grateful for her ability to capture our most beautiful day. Her ability with a camera would make any personality tolerable, but she is as fun and helpful with arranging shots and corralling family members as she is talented with her camera. She brought a joy to our wedding day with her presence and continues to bring us joy through the beautiful images we have of our most special day." – Paul Z.
