Who we are

Meet Bella Luca

Hi, we're Mike and Lisa Gagliano, wedding photographers in Memphis, Tennessee. We have a passion for capturing beautiful moments. We started in the wedding, event industry in 2000, which makes us feel old, but it also gives us a ton of experience under our belts. Where did we get our name you ask. we settled on Bella Luca, named after our two ridiculously adorable children of the same names. Bella Luca means "beautiful light," and it felt destined to be. We are fortunate to have worked with amazing clients all over the United States, and love that we get to do it together, even after all these years!

MOTTO: MIRACLES
DO HAPPEN 

 In 2006 I purchased my first DSLR, a 6mp Minolta 5D. I was a graphic design student and I wanted to take photos for my projects rather than have to search the internet for what I was looking for. I thought taking my own stock quality images would be easy. I didn't know I was in for a challenge and a life long career.

I have narrowed my focus to specializing in all things wedding including glamour & boudoir. I guide my clients through the entire process including makeup, lingerie & posing. 

I am proud to say that I have had the pleasure of working with Mike and Lisa Gagliano of Bella Luca Photography for 2 years.

Meet Julie

When we're not shooting, we're hanging out with our two kids, who are basically just smaller versions of us. Lucus (13) loves being outdoors as long as he has an electronic device. Bella (10) is our silly one and loves to make us laugh! She also rocks the softball!! As a family, we love camping, cycling, fishing, and watching
