About this pro

Choosing the right photographer to capture your candid moments, family memories, wedding portraits of that perfect moment is essential. That's where we come in! With our experience and impeccable attention to detail, we will be sure that you get the best to our ability, most cherished, creative captures to remember your special day or Big event forever.

It's your day and the last thing you need is to worry about your photographer and if they got everything you wanted or forgot to ask about. By hiring Bella Fotos {Toni Geib}, you can rest assured that you have the absolute best. We have been in the photography industry for over 18 years. In that time, we've seen several photography trends come and go, so we know that adopting those trends will make your photos look dated.

We pride ourselves on our traditional true color, deep contrast black & whites & moody film style that will make your photos timeless!

We spend time getting to know YOU so that each photo and portrait we capture reflects your style and personality. We take the time to carefully plan and craft the best strategy for capturing every perfect moment of your special day - while blending in, quietly playing photo ninja and have fun with you as our Bridal couple in the process!

We will be yours for the entire time you need us, to capturing every detail and special moment to the tiny candid moments you didn't expect. After the event, the enhanced photos are yours to keep! You will receive every photo we capture, edited in Color & Photographer’s choices of Black & White on a Flash Drive (weddings mainly- events with aquick turn arounds- are sent digitally) with a protected print release watermark free to do with whatever you please. We don't keep anything from you. We want you to have the best memories from your special day or event that you can relive for years to come.

What I personally enjoy most is creating your memories, being apart of your moments and sharing the final albums with my client families/Bridal couple in the end. Their faces light up, they cry with joy and they value us and the art we create for them.

I also volunteer a lot for our local police & fire departments as well as animal shelters with my photography talents. I enjoy giving back to those in need and the community.

  • Chris Smith

    She has a great eye for showing a subject in a way you would not expect. Also my amateur photos are always over or under exposed where the lighting in her pictures is perfect. I like her outdoor photography as well.

  • David Curtis Bowling

    She made me feel comfortable without being experienced in front of a camera and not knowing her at all. She had an amazing eye for angles and detail. Her editing work is spectacular!

  • Erica Bickhart

    I’ve worked with Toni 5 times now. She has very professional and friendly in all that she does. She takes high quality photographs and does a great job at capturing the moment. She is very timely in getting pictures for viewing. Toni will continue to be our first contact for our photography needs.

How did you get started in this business?

My grandfather was a photographer both professionally and freelanced for the newspaper. I always showed an interest in his work and loved learning about film photography from him. He purchased my first film camera when I was 8 years old and from there it took off. It became a creative outlet for me and literally was all I loved doing as a young child. 

Capturing memories and honoring families with moments that are once in a lifetime has always been a big part of who I am as a professional and mother myself who loves memories!




What types of customers have you worked with?

My main focus is Event, Fundraisers,Wedding Photography, Portraits, Business Headshots, Family portrait sessions, and Real Estate. However, I do get the occasional newborn session, boudoir, and random inquiry ..."Do you photograph this or that?".. yes, I do! I am a master photographer which means I am formally trained in all spectrums of photography.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Don't always settle for "cheap", "inexpensive" or "Affordable". You will always get what you pay for and memories should be worth every penny. Memories are irreplaceable and just hiring anyone based off price, especially for your wedding memories should never because they are cheap! 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Your date of service?

Length of time you would need my services?

Will there be any other locations or travel while with you?

Will you need me to bring a secondary shooter, an assistant, a makeup artist or wedding coordinator?

If I travel to you and you decide you need my services longer than expected, will you accommodate lodging or ensure I lodge in a safe area of town I am not familiar with?
