WOW! Mark is unbelievably talented artist. I have had nothing but wonderful compliments on our wedding pictures and special treatment for me - exclusive classical film portrait pictures . From our first conversation on the phone to the last email I have enjoyed every interaction. Getting pictures taken with him was exciting and if it weren't for time schedules I would have loved to take more. Everyone looks fantastic in our pictures and he captured so many unexpected moments. I already recommended Mark to all my close friends and family. You would feel lucky and privileged to have him take pictures for you!Sent on 09/19/2015

An extraordinary artist
When looking for a wedding photographer, we focused on finding someone extraordinary. After seeing Mark’s work on his website, we were intrigued. After speaking to Mark, we felt that he had something very special to offer. Then, after working with him and seeing the pictures of our wedding day, our instincts has been confirmed! Mark is an artist. You will notice Mark references Ansel Adams on his website. In our opinion he represents one of the famous quotes of Mr. Adams “ You don’t take a good photograph, you make it.” Mark made our day and our photographs, extraordinary, just like he is.Sent on 01/31/2019

Mark did an excellent job with our wedding. He was early to the venue, was stylish and professional while being very discrete during the event. He was friendly and very patient with a brief delay on our part. He did a combination of B/W and color- both of which were excellent. Don't be afraid to do the B/W series, they are very timeless and poignant. Though we didn't meet before the wedding, we connected easily and we felt confident in his experience and abilities. Mark does a great job and provides excellent value.Sent on 01/18/2018
I can't say enough good things about photography with Mark Nelson. His style is classic and he's a wonderful person to work with. Very professional and very thorough. So many of his portraits transcend the moment to be art in their own right. I think his working in film rather than digital may be some of the reason. Peter and I at Sedona Fine Art of Flowers recommend him highly.
