“Photography is a love affair with life.” – Burk Uzzle

Brenda Lopez and Duy Nguyen founded Bella Lumi after many years of working in the wedding industry. Together, they wanted to create a wonderful, more personal, photography experience for their clients. Connecting with their clients and providing top of the line customer service along with beautiful imagery is their priority and the foundation of all that they aim to do at Bella Lumi.

Brenda Lopez graduated with a Bachelors’ Degree in Photojournalism at The University of Texas at Austin in 2010. She first experienced weddings & portraits as a photography intern while studying. Since then, she has photographed well over 200 weddings of various cultural backgrounds including destination weddings.

Duy Nguyen graduated with a Bachelors’ of Fine Arts in 2009. While he majored in Graphic Design, he has a wide range of hobbies including interior design and traveling. When he is not busy with weddings, he likes to spend his time with family, trying new restaurants and of course, crossing out another destination off his bucket list.

“We live in a beautiful world – full of love & light. My goal is to let everyone see that. I am my happiest when I am behind the lens because there is nothing I love more than creating these precious keepsakes for my clients. I created Bella Lumi to give people not just gorgeous photos but an entire experience. I believe that connecting with my clients is the first and most important step to creating images they will love forever. These are special, intimate moments in life that a photographer is asked to be a part of and I want nothing more than to create the most comfortable environment when doing so. I absolutely love love and all the goodness that comes with it!”
