    Melissa did an excellent job capturing such great shots. First with our engagement pictures my husband and I were a little shy in front of the camera ! Melissa was so good with us and took the time to get some great shots. For our wedding, we had an exceptionally wild wedding party and Melissa was able to grab their attention and get hundreds of absolutely stunning pictures. We are so pleased with her work we are having a hard time picking favorites, because there is so many great pictures ! We aren't starting a family right away but when we do we will be sure to take our babies to her. She does quality work for a reasonable price !

    Melissa met with us and from the first day, we were blown away by not only her porfolio, but her personality and willingness to work with us for certain pictures that we wanted.

    We got engagement pictures and our wedding proofs back so far and are blown away. It's crazy how many great pictures there are that I don't know how we're going to cut them down to the ones in a book.

    Also, many of the pictures we're also done with certain effects to highlight various colors, washes, and other techniques that I'm not aware of. What we ended up with were 3 of the same picture (one that looks like a standard pic, another in black and white, and a third that looks very artistic and could be hung in our house). The artistic side and creative pictures are what we feel separates her from others out there.

    We could not be happier and plan to use Melissa for baby pictures sometime soon....maybe not too soon. We would recommend her to anyone.

    Amazing!
    Melissa took such beautiful pictures for my wedding! She was wonderful to work with, and delivered excellent service. My whole family was impressed with her professionalism and talent. We especially loved her positive attitude on the day of the wedding--the smile never left her face! Highly recommend!

    Melissa did a wonderful job with our wedding photography. She was more than accomodating and was very patient. The photos turned out beautifully and not to mention the cost was amazing. I couldn't have asked for better wedding photos. We received three proof books with over 1200 photos. It is now 5 months after the wedding and we have yet to choose photos for our album because of how wonderful they all are; it's hard to choose!

    Melissa is so wonderful to work with. She captured the most amazing shots of me and my husband on our wedding day. She recorded all of the moments that I wanted along with some beautiful candid shots that we just love. All of my guests told me how nice and professional she was. The proof books we got are amazing. Everyone comments about now beautiful they are. I also ordered picture Thank You notes and Melissa had the design done that same day and got the product to me so quickly. I tell everyone that I know who is getting married to consider Melissa Distel Photography because I know that they will love her work.

    Melissa was a joy to work with. She was patient, but focused on getting the job done. She moved through the day at a good speed, but we never felt rushed. Our proofs were on line the next day, and we had our proof books within 2 weeks. She took some great shots; a nice balance between "traditional" and "unique". I highly recommend Melissa Distel Photography!

    Melissa Distel provides exceptional work as well as a caring, friendly and professional attitude, which are all very important! We absolutely love working with Melissa and highly reccommend her! My sister used her for her wedding and we continue to use her for any pictures needed in the family.
    Friends of ours have also booked her by witnessing her exceptional work!
    We are very happy that we selected Melissa to be our photographer and we will continue to use her in all the years to come :)!!!

    Melissa did an excellent job as my wedding photographer. I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a great price, exceptional results, and friendly service. Melissa has a unique talent in her ability to truly capture the day without making the entire day about the pictures.

    Melissa took the time prior to the wedding to discuss all of my options. While she does have packages to choose from, she took the time to help customize a package specific to fit what I was looking for. Everyone that looks at my albums wants to know who the talent is behind the design. I am very happy I choose Melissa Distel Photography!

    Melissa was extremely professional and flexible throughout the entire wedding preocess. Photography was the most important item on our wedding list. The cost was totally worth the memories that were captured on our special day.

    Melissa is such an amazing photographer. The day I met with Melissa, I knew in my heart that she would make our wedding day beautiful! Her proof books and the album she has made for us is perfection! Everyone that has seen them was amazed by her work. Not only is she prompt and ready to take pictures as soon as she sees you, she had our album and our proof books done by like two weeks! I was so excited to see our wedding pictures online the very next day! Melissa has even taken pictures of my baby girl, she does great work!! I highly recommend Melissa to EVERYONE!! You will be so happy with her.

    I could not have asked for a more professional photographer! And the pictures she took were simply amazing. Not only did she take photographs, she coordinated with me via email...which at the time was the best I could do...she traveled for the wedding and was extremely gracious while she was there. I highly recommend her!!!

    The only issue I had was, looking back at the photographs afterward, we didn't get as many formal portraits without my husband wearing gloves and a top hat as I would have liked. Having gotten caught up in the moment of pictures and having just been married, it didn't dawn on me that we didn't get as many non-top-hat pictures as I would've liked which limited the selection of portrait pictures. This is not entirely her fault but things go by so quickly that you don't think of it and it's nice to have gentle reminders from those on the outside such as your vendors.

    Other than that, we LOVE our pictures and think she did a fabulous job. We cannot wait to see how our albums turn out. Sometimes email responses come slowly (ie 1-2 days later) but it's not a deal breaker for me. When something is urgent, just call and she'll get you answers.
