"Bella has a unique style and energy that brings out a natural beauty in her photographs" Kat and Henry

"We couldn't be happier with choosing Bella as our wedding photographer.
She captured so many beautiful, unguarded and natural moments from the day. Bella can snap the best of people because she puts them at ease while at the same time being a total pro. She has a great eye for the big and small moments and scenes that make a wedding so unique.
Bella was great to work with and I trusted her completely to do her thing. And she did it superbly! The photos she took that weekend will be our family treasures.
I would happily recommend her to anyone."

"Bella is one of a kind. A brilliant photographer with bags of energy and loads of fun. She's got an amazing skill at sticking her camera at the right things without anyone knowing and catching the spirit of folks at whatever events she's working at. The pics are excellent and she's got a way with colour and contrast.
I only have good things to say and can't recommend her enough."
Anselm Guise

"Bella took some portraits of me and it was a lovely experience. She made me feel so at ease with her lively and kind presence. It was also great fun! She sent me the photos shortly after and they were stunning. Thank you Bella, you're a superstar."

"I love her way of working. Capturing people in natural surroundings. But also her still life. It all has her distinctive signature."
Rene Kramers- Photographer

"2 books I made with Bella Thewes: Wildplukken (Foraging) and Plant als medicijn (plant as medicine). Bella is an Amsterdam-based photographer from Scotland. It was great working with her.
The first book: Wildplukken, asked a flexibel time-schedule. And a flexible mind. The book is about foraging wild and eatable plants. In the morning I picked the plants and drove directly to Bella, so she could make the photo of the plant. After that I made a medicine from it and she took the pictures of the making proces and the medicine itself.
She has a beautiful and intuitive way of making the pictures. She prefers using daylight, and the pictures are of a rare delicate natural beauty. I think it is quite difficult to photograph plants, because it can be quite dull and difficult to make an interesting image. But she was able to make a beautiful picture of all of them. They are all beautiful plant portraits.
I love working with Bella because she is a quiet, hardworking person who really concentrates on the job.
She is cooperative and likes to think with me about the best image possible."
Leoniek Bontje- Herbologist and author of Wild Plukken and Plant als medicine.

"What an absolute delight to work with Bella, her amazing personality made the shoot a dream (even forgetting I do not like my picture taken). The results were amazing and really enjoyed the whole day. Thank you so much. :)"
Paula Field- Artist

"I saw Bella’s photographs on her instagram account and thought the children’t portraits looked fun and real and not too staged. I contacted her to see if she could photograph my children and from that moment on it was a pleasure to deal with her. She was straightforward organising the time to come out and when she arrived she immediately connected with my children and made them giggle. Endless showing off ensued, which Bella was orchestrating whilst snapping away with her camera. She was so professional knowing exactly what I would like to have - a mixture of individual portraits and group shots - smiling and laughing. She was quick and the whole process was fun and easy. I cannot recommend her more highly and plan to make it an annual event."
Lorna Lyle

"I treasure my wedding photographs, Bella captured the joy, exuberance, emotion and energy of the day. She is a total pro and you don’t end up with your average static shots. I can not recommend her highly enough."
