Smile Bella Aruba Photography=Magnificent Photos

On August 19th, my husband and I celebrated our 1st Wedding Anniversary in Aruba and decided on an intimate Vow Renewal Ceremony followed by romantic beach photos and then trash the dress pictures. Angela from Bella Aruba Photography perfectly captured all of the photographs. She decided on Arashi Beach for the ceremony, then wisked us away to various locations along Aruba’s North Side beaches for photos. Lastly, we went to another stretch of beach to trash the dress. Angela has a brilliant eye, her work is BREATHTAKING and she is a pure pleasure to work with! Each and every picture is flawless and ideally reflects the emotions and essence of our special day.

Here is the link to some of our photos:

We renewed our vows with Rev Gibson in April. The man is a gentleman, and happens to be from RI...so, we are partial. ANyway, you would have thought he knew us with his ceremony. My pic is from the ceremony.
Best wishes, your pics are beautiful. Saw them on aruba.com.

We truly had created an amazing memory and we are so glad that we decided to make our First Wedding Anniversary so special- it was so romantic and much better than we could have ever dreamed of-We will cherish and remember it always!

Thanks for looking- we really had a great time and the islands natural beauty is the perfect backdrop for any pictures and the weather was great, as usual!

We hope to spend all of our wedding anniversaries blissfully in Aruba- our tropical paradise!

i keep getting these messages on my email at home from bella aruba, and frankly I am a little sick of them. I would say I've had 7 could be as many as 9...How in god's name can I get them stopped...I am not in the market for a photographer in aruba....

Default Re: Bella Aruba Photography=Magnificent Photos

that's a good question. first, block emails from this person's email address. you can do that easily with most email systems (i don't know which you are with or i would try to give you more specific info). second, take your email out of circulation to stop people from using it. you obviously have it open to the public on some forum. what i mean is, every forum you belong to should give the same option we have which is to allow people to contact you via your email. from what i see, on our forum you do not have your email accessible at all (except to our offices which neither sell your email address to others nor send advertising to our members). check other aruba forums. on our forum you have not posted your email and this company has found it.

personally, i find spam (unwanted advertising) one of the vile things about computers. this forum doesn't tolerate it. we will ban anyone who once warned not to send spam continues to send it. unfortunately, we can't stop it on other forums since we have no control over what others do.

mom, the one email you need to leave open is allowing our admin to send email or we can't contact you with a problem. we never sell email addresses nor do we tolerate any member emailing solicitations. if that was all you had as allowed, it was not here that she got your email. our system is very different than other forums. the first email that is sent by any member to one that doesn't block it is sent as a 'blind'. that means that unless you respond to that person, they will never see your email address. therefore, if 'bella' is sending you emails thru us, she is easily blocked by checking no for 'display email'. you have already done that.

btw, if anyone reading this is receiving unwanted emails from this person, please let me know and let us find out if she is using our forum as a conduit. if she is, we obviously want to know.

That is SO weird... I used Bella Aruba for these pictures and am planning on using her again for photos in the future, but, I have never received any e-mail(s) at all from her company. Could it be spam / fishing e-mail?

Thank you very much, I appreciate the compliment- I have about 375 total pictures on DVD's and I am having such a hard time picking out my favorites for an album!

that is a good question. maybe you can email her and have her contact me. then we can get it straight. but if the person is using her business name i have to assume it is her unless told otherwise.

Hello Sherry,
I did not know how to post directly to you so I am posting for everyone to see.
I am new as of today on this board because hampton princess had asked me to check out what one person Cindy O on aruba.com board has been saying and on this board she is someone else, I do not have to hide my idenity nor do I get clients from this board or any board. I am a proud photographer on Aruba and love my passion in capturing love. I do not have a website nor a mailing list so I do not know what this person is talking about. I do not have time to play games with my bussiness especially from posters like her. I have never emailed her, nor bothered any posters on this forum.
I have copy and pasted Cindy O or arubamom's emails to me today.
As you can see on the first line she states I don't want to have to post that you guys have been annoying....why does she post that if I work alone and have a partner who fills in when I am away, ( Unfortunatly because my assistant and I had alot to do with the Holloway case I think that this person wants to bash what we work hard for in Aruba as Ambassadors and residents on Aruba. I hope we can get to the bottom of this because its not a nice touch to this forum or aruba.com).

angela, i have sent you emails. i think now, both sides have had their say in this matter. i am assume that hamptonprincess is accurate that it is spam/phishing emails and that with the address blocked by arubamom they will stop.

i hope we can consider this problem a thing of the past and go back to talking about wedding pictures. it's much easier viewing pictures than trying to straighten out problems, lol.

thank you for taking the time to reply to the posts.

Talking Re: Bella Aruba Photography=Magnificent Photos

I just realized that this was still available for online viewing and wanted to share...

Angela from Bella Aruba had taken the time to write a beautiful article with an amazing color photo spread documenting our Vow Renewal Ceremony & Trash the Dress Photos for the Aruba Today Newspaper on Saturday, August 23, 2008- A photo of us and our names were placed boldly on the front cover and our story appeared on the entire first page! It really made us feel special and was such a nice keepsake!

Our First Wedding Anniversary & Trash The Dress Album is now complete and it turned out so PERFECTLY, that I wanted to share it!

We decided on a non-traditional 8 1/2 by 11 softcover magazine with scrapbook style layouts on laminated pages.
