Through Timeless, classic and  romantic  Images

Celebrating your love story

Columbia Mo Wedding and Portrait photographer

EST 2013

It's a true joy and an enormous blessing to get to do something that I absolutely love. Something that I'm constantly reminded of is that time doesn't stop, it just seems to go faster and faster. We're so busy with life that we blink and we nearly miss it. My goal is to capture those timeless moments that we hold dear so we can look back on them and remember the details that form the stories of our lives. I look forward to telling your story

I am so delighted that you've stopped by! I'm Berenice Dawes, owner and photographer at Bella Faith Photography.

love notes

Berenice was everything we could have asked for and more for our wedding! If you want someone who genuinely cares about your happiness on your wedding day, is willing to do any idea you think of, and is constantly there to give you support as a bride and remind you it’s YOUR day, then don’t choose anyone else. Talented, sweet and funny! Even my husband said she made him feel comfortable while taking photos, making the whole experience that much more enjoyable. Not to mention, the PHOTOS! Just wow 🤩. Perfection.

"We had a great experience with Berenice! Her and our second shooter took so much time and care to make the whole wedding photography experience easy, comfortable, personable, and memorable. Berenice is organized and takes extra time to be detail-oriented. We love our photos and would highly recommend!"

"Berenice was everything we wanted in a wedding photographer and more! We loved her from the first time we met her at our engagement shoot. Her joyful spirit made everyone feel relaxed on the wedding day, and she delivered the wedding gallery of our dreams! Absolutely worth the investment for photos that we will cherish forever!"

Berenice and her second shooter Krystal were an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding day! She brought energy that added to the joy of the day and was flexible with our less-than-organized wedding crew. We are gushing over our photos, which were delivered in just a few short weeks after the big day! We asked her to prioritize candids and she absolutely delivered, capturing the smiles, goofy faces, and big moments that allow us to relive the best day for years to come!! We can't say enough good things about her and her product. Highly recommend!!

Berenice took the most incredible graduation photos! She was great to work with and knew exactly how to capture beautiful pictures. Her experience and expertise shines through every photo she takes. I would highly recommend her to any family member or friend! She also overdelivered on the photo gallery and it’s so hard to pick a favorite!! Thank you again Berenice!


Berenice was an absolute joy to work with! I couldn't be happier with how she captured my master's degree milestone. Her gift for photography is incredible and shines through every picture she takes! I will definitely recommend her to friends and family in the future. Thank you times a million!!!
