Destri is energetic, positive, and makes pictures go quickly! My entire family and guests loved working with her! We had our pictures back the week after the wedding and they were all gorgeous!

I still have to pinch myself when I see my wedding or engagement pictures, they are THAT good. Having Destri do our pictures completely REVOLUTIONIZED the way that I think about pictures now and the eye with which I view them. As a person, Destri has a very happy trigger finger... Read More (I swear her camera is set to continuous picture taking at all times), she's very happy and down to Earth, easy to joke around with (and she succeeds at getting you to smile very easily). She's professional and able to direct people for shots without being mean or rude about it. She's just a joy to be around and work with. As far as her work goes, it's just breathtaking. I am someone who LOVES color in photographs. I want to feel like I'm back in that exact moment. I'm not so much into the artistic angles or black & white, etc. Destri was totally on board with that and able to deliver for us in a big way. People are STILL talking about our pictures months later. Aside from all of that was Destri's AMAZING price tag. We had set a budget and we spent so much time looking for a decent photographer who would at least come close to our budget. And we didn't find anyone, until Destri. I consider myself lucky and so thankful we found her, and that she was within my budget. Though honestly, I would have blown my budget just to have her anyways, she's that good! Destri is my go-to photographer for life now. Recommend 10 times out of 10.

Destri is AMAZING! She did an amazing job on our wedding photos. She goes above and beyond to please her clients. She is extremely organized and that is VERY important on your wedding day. I HIGHLY recommend you choose Destri to capture your special day!

Truly Amazing

Destri is absolutely fantastic to work with. She is funny, caring, and extremely sweet. She makes posing for the camera extremely comfortable. Her photography speaks for itself. She does amazing work, and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. Our engagement pictures were... Read More included in our package. This was extremely helpful. When looking for a photographer, many of them charged for any extras that you would want (engagement pictures, digital rights, etc.) With Destri, all of these were included. Her work is amazing, and value is even better. We had our engagement pictures the next day, and then on our wedding day, we had a sneak peak that night! She is very quick at getting you your photographs. It was so exciting to look through the pictures right away, and not have to wait months like I've heard from other people. We are lifetime clients, and we can't wait to work with her again!

Destri did such a good job on both our engagement and wedding photos! We couldn't have been more pleased with how they turned out and we have had nothing but compliments about her work. Though her talent speaks for itself, she is also wonderful to work with. Her enthusiasm... Read More and high energy is infectious and greatly contributed to the vibe on our wedding day. We honestly can't give her and her work enough praise and plan to work with her in the future.

Destri did my boudoir shots. They were AMAZING! I looked like a model in the pictures. I was so excited to give them to my husband on our wedding day and he loved them too. She also did our wedding. She and her assistant were so much fun! The pictures, again, were amazing.... Read More She is also lightning fast. I have my disk within a week of my wedding. And she is reasonably priced. She is so good that she could charge double, but doesn’t. Great lady, great photographer!
