REVIEWS HAVE RATED LEX NELSON PHOTOGRAPHY: ★★★★★
See recent reviews on The Knot!
Lex is a true artist who can work with any style. I was pretty particular with what I wanted captured and I think she absolutely nailed it. Being in front of the camera on an intimate level is tough for most people but she was great in keeping us calm and talking to us so that we were able to look natural. Her style is very unique and really isn't afraid to go outside the box. Smoke Bombs are amazing and her love of bridal veils is one of the many items she uses to create amazing photographs. But by far her biggest strength is the use of light. Her pictures are dreamy and make you feel like you're in a fairytale. I was so happy I chose Lex for my engagement photos and wedding and I assure you that you will feel the same.
I originally waited to write this review because I wanted to be sure that I did Lex justice and gave her the credit that she deserved, however I feel like this review still won't even come close to expressing how grateful I am that my husband and I booked her as our wedding photographer. Saying that Lex is the best in the business is an extreme understatement, and to top it all off she is an outstandingly sweet and incredible human being. When we first got engaged, I started seeking out a photographer because I knew that it would be quite the task (I researched and interviewed 31 photographers—Yes, you read that correctly). I found Lex earlier on in my search, and I quickly realized in my other interviews that no one really compared to her or was as compatible with my husband and I and what we were looking for in a photographer—We wanted super organic and natural photos that weren’t too staged or overly posed, however we definitely needed some direction since the last professional photos we each took were our senior portraits over 10 years prior. She was super accommodating to our budget and what type of coverage we needed for our wedding day. Fast forward to our engagement photos— Lex made us feel so comfortable and was so fun to be around—She just got us and got our vision. When our wedding day arrived, we couldn’t wait for Lex and her assistant to show up, because we knew our entire bridal party would love them and that they would capture our day perfectly. The whole day went by and we hardly even knew she was there (except when she literally stopped traffic and stood in the middle of a busy downtown intersection just to make sure she got the perfect shot, she’s that fearless and dedicated to her passion!)—She captured our day perfectly and our family and friends keep raving about how amazing she was and how great the photos are. We are forever grateful to Lex and look forward to enjoying our wedding photos for a lifetime!
Lex is amazing - we LOVED working with her. First of all, she is so approachable and fun to be around. A few guests came up to us and said how they loved her direction to pose a certain way in a photo to make the photo work better... and how she did it in a fun, professional way. She also made my husband and I feel so comfortable and confident. Intimate photos made us a little nervous, and she made them so easy and made us feel great - you can tell she really cares about her couples. Second of all, she is incredibly talented. Everyone we have showed our photos to was blown away by how beautiful they are, and we cannot stop looking at how amazing the photos turned out. We cannot wait to see the rest of them! Thank you Lex!
Where can I start, Lex was truly an incredible part of our wedding experience! My husband is not a huge photo guy so the thought of engagement and wedding photos seemed like it was going to be a struggle. When we first met Lex before our engagement shoot those worries quickly went away, she could not have made the two of us feel more comfortable on top of getting some pretty amazing photos that everyone loves! One of my bridesmaids even booked her after having a great experience with her! She is extremely responsive, flexible, fun loving and makes you feel like a million dollars! Her work is incredible and we couldn't have been more pleased with how our photos turned out! Her passion for photography is evident and our family and friends are blown away by how she documented our special journey! BOOK HER NOW!!
Lex is fabulous! We were so fortunate to book Lex for our wedding Memorial Day weekend in Boothbay, Maine. Lex is very easy to work with, extremely organized and she captured our wedding perfectly. The final product is stunning. My husband and I have looked through our album multiple times and the wedding was only 2 months ago. She was also timely on getting us the final product, our pictures arrived much earlier then expected. I can not recommend Lex enough!
Lex is an absolute dream to work with and she made our wedding photo dreams come true! She was willing to do whatever it took to make us happy, including a single day roundtrip to where we live for our engagement photos. From the moment we met her, we were beyond comfortable with her for our engagement photos and spending our wedding day with her was a blast. I am so obsessed with the photos that she captured of us and everyone I show them to is nearly speechless. Lex is amazingly talented and will capture your wedding day, from the details to the big moments, in a beautiful, romantic, and amazing way. Book her now!!
My husband and I could literally not be any happier with Lex! She was such a huge part in our day's success and is so fun to work with. Not only did she make the photos fun (which led to some seriously beautiful and natural looking shots) but she also worked out a timeline for us to make sure we didn't miss any of the party. Finding an amazing photographer was our most important decision when choosing our vendors, and we are beyond in love with our photos! Aside from the quality of our wedding album, our guests could not stop commenting on how fun and attentive Lex was throughout the day. At one point, she literally laid down on the floor to capture a picture of our group of cousins dancing in a circle!! If you're looking for someone who will capture the moments you want to remember (in the most beautiful way possible), Lex Nelson Photography is who you want to hire. Lex was able to perfectly capture our day and even sent us a USB with our pictures neatly organized into folders for each part of the day. We have not been able to stop looking at them ever since she released them to us, and are lucky enough to be able to re-live our perfect day and each moment every time we go through our album. I promise you will not regret booking Lex Nelson Photography.
I have great news: you don't need to look any further for a wedding photographer because you have found the best! Lex Nelson is extremely talented and such a fun person to work with! She goes above and beyond in every way. Choosing Lex Nelson Photography was by far the best decision I made in my entire wedding planning process! She traveled all the way from Chicago to Maine to photograph my wedding! She always responds to my emails very fast. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She is extremely friendly and our wedding photos are phenomenal. I could not be more happy with Lex Nelson Photography and I highly recommend her!
There are not enough words to say how amazing Lex was yesterday. She was great with the planning aspect and so much fun to have as a part of our wedding. She captured the moments perfectly and the pictures I have seen so far are way beyond our expectations. She even went barefoot to crawl on seaweed covered rocks on the jagged coast of Maine to capture us at sunset. I highly recommend Lex, you will not be disappointed!
When my husband and I met with Lex and knew instantly she was going to be our wedding photographer. She was one of the first vendors we hired. When we started to meet with caters, florists, and etc we both felt if they didn't make us feel as comfortable as Lex did they weren't the vendors for us.
Lex made herself available to us with any questions we had. She even came with me to check out our venue way before the wedding. Now day of, she KILLED IT! Her second shooter and her honestly blended in with our guests. My husband and I did not feel like we were being chased down by cameras. My bridesmaids could not get over how great she was at directing us to get all the beautiful shot she did. I keep telling people that day felt like magic and she was a big part of it.
Stop looking for a wedding photographer and hire Lex. You won't regret it.
I could not be happier with the photos Lex captured of our wedding day. She was delightful to work with from start to finish, and I never had a worry that we wouldn't get exactly what we were hoping for. She even walked into the cold September ocean for us in a trash the dress session. I am beyond thrilled and will be forever grateful that our perfect day was captured so perfectly. Thank you Lex!!!
We had the pleasure of Lex shooting our engagement photos. We were nervous as we had never had professional photos taken as a couple, but Lex's talent and friendly personality put us at ease. She allowed us to bring along our 9 year old Siberian Husky and managed to capture the most amazing shots of our VERY hyper dog. Every single photo in our gallery is perfectly captured and perfectly edited. We cannot wait to work with her for all of our upcoming events. As I'm writing this review I'm realizing that words can't really do justice for how amazing Lex and her photography is, but I hope this was a start
