“I keep describing and recommending Nelson and Nelstudios to people as a "graceful fly on the wall" - because everything was so seamless. We got such lovely photos - they were so natural and truly captured the spirit of the day. If you want a very professional, talented photographer with a great eye, and a knack for really lovely, natural photos - Nelstudios is IT!”

—Kate & Charles (Wedding)

“Nelstudios did such a great job with my engagement photos. I normally hate having photos taken but Nelson made us feel comfortable and the photos came out looking so natural. We got a lot of compliments on the album, which was edited beautifully with great attention to detail and ready for us in no time at all.”

—Emily & Alex (Engagement)

“Nelstudios did incredible work for our wedding. We had an intimate ceremony with various photo locations, and every single photo came out magazine worthy! Nelson was excellent in providing instructions that took all the guess work out of posing and made us feel very confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Nelson is not only professional, but also kind, easy-going, personable, and creative. My wife and highly recommend.”

—Raeven & Khalfani (Wedding)
