I was extremely impressed and literally blown away by my wedding pictures from Mark. He captured all my special moments while making myself and my husband feel relaxed and comfortable. Mark and his second photographer were with the bridal party at 8 a.m taking photos of hair and make-up and stayed with us until we left the venue at 11 p.m. Mark even had an assistant with him that made sure that my dress was absolutely perfect for each shot. Mark presented us with a flash drive of all our pictures...thousands of them...from our special day in an extremely timely manner. Mark will keep you laughing all day which definitely helped myself and the entire wedding party feel relaxed. In addition, I had several photo ideas that I had seen on Pinterest and Mark was able to capture each one exactly like I wanted. Mark delivers quality and unique photos that will last a lifetime! You simply cannot beat the price and amount of time and effort that Mark puts into his work. I am so thankful that we used Mark Parsons Photography! I would absolutely recommend him for your wedding photography needs! You will not be disappointed!
A word of advice for those looking to use Mark Parsons Photography for their wedding.... they are HIGHLY unprofessional (especially Mark himself). Before we even hired him, Mark arranged for my husband and I to meet with him in his "studio" (aka his house). When we got there, his office was a complete wreck (i.e. papers and other miscellaneous items all over the desk, scattered around the floor, and in literal piles), his dog kept barking at us as we tried to have a conversation about his photography, and worse of all he was dressed in a wrinkled t-shirt and BOXERS claiming he "lost track of time". The communication is also extremely poor since there were multiple instances where Mark and his wife didn't return phone messages in which I asked for them to call back. I should have taken these bad signs and decided to go with another photographer, but due to the lack of photographers in the area, I unfortunately didn't. On our wedding day as my husband and I were saying our goodbye's before leaving the venue, Mark openly asked me in front of our guests who he needed to see about receiving his final payment (something we discussed prior to the event in full detail). Another issue was that Mark assured us that we would receive the USB drive with our photographs 1-2 weeks after our wedding (which was the main reason for choosing him), however, we didn't get our digital photos until 2 months later. Not to mention the multiple calls that had to be made on my end, followed by their multiple excuses, and when we finally did receive them, it was simply put in an envelope wrapped in paper towels. We were also told by Mark over the phone that we would be receiving a photo album of our wedding photos and to email him the pictures we wanted. After sending him the selected photos, I got a response saying that we would have to pay $600 for it - something we were NOT about to do after we were told it was included. To this day, we still never got our photo album.
Mark was GREAT! His pricing was very reasonable compared to many other vendors in the area, as we got the 'mid-range' package, and it included all-day photography with two photographers AND we have the rights to all the photos he takes. His team was professional yet very fun, and kept us laughing all day. As an added plus, he'd shot hundreds of weddings at our venues, so knew all the best spots for beautiful pictures. Only suggestion would be to call instead of e-mail if you need a fast response. Highly recommend.
Very professional, quick and reliable. Outstanding value! Very impressed---we took engagement photos the night before our wedding because we were coming in from out of town and he surprised us on our wedding day with a display of a few of our photos. So beautiful!
Mark is phenomenal!! He will make your day special which makes for great memories.
I couldn't imagine having hired any other photographer! Mark not only was very easy to schedule appointments with, but his attitude was was so jovial and fun! When we met at his office to view portfolios and pay our deposits, we ended up staying almost a hour after business just talking. It rained almost the whole time during our engagement session, but the final pictures we got back look very sunny and not even cloudy! We had lots of fun during the session.
Our wedding day was even more fun! Mark kept the bridal party in stitches, so not only did he capture the smiles, I know many of our pictures will show us laughing. He was where he needed to be to get all the best shots so I don't have to worry about forgetting anything as he captured all the best moments.
Mark was an awesome photographer. He really paid attention to what kind of pictures I wanted and made sure they were all taken during the wedding. He spent the whole day with us and the pictures turned out beautifully. I would 100% recommend him.
Can I only put down 5 stars? Mark exceeded my expectations!! My husband and I are both in the television industry so we are pretty particular about how pictures/photographs look. We wanted to make sure our day was documented from start to finish. Mark was there to meet me when I got my hair done. And he stayed late after the reception was over to make sure we got the pictures we wanted. He suggested fun pictures and we have some truly unique locales and photographs to remember our big day. I wish I could give him a 6th star for quality of service!!
We actually used Kelly, Mark's assistant. Kelly was very professional, and made a very stressful day much easier. When we weren't able to finish photography in a timely fashion, she very kindly offered to come back out on monday and take additional pictures. She was very very responsive, and did everything that we asked of her, and was always easily at hand if we needed her.
Mark was great! On time, professional, with a good sense of humor! I had some last minute scheduling problems with my bridal portrait session, but Mark was wonderful and understanding and allowed me to come 4 hours late!! I would definately recommend Parsons!
Mark is a full-time professional. This was very important to me, because there are SO MANY people out there who THINK they are photographers just because they own a nice camera, but they only work on the weekends, and their real job is doing something completely unrelated.
My insistence on using only full-time pros (photographer, DJ, videography, etc.) at our wedding was the best decision we made. I've known way too many people (friends, family) who have made their decisions based on price alone, and believe me, they paid for that bad decision one way or another.
Mark did a fantastic job. He worked like crazy the day of the wedding and then spent countless hours putting everything together for us after the wedding. We couldn't be happier and would highly, HIGHLY recommend his work to any future couple!
