Greg was wonderful to work with! He made us feel comfortable and was so easy to get along with. We only used him for engagement pictures as we are having a destination wedding, but I plan to use his services in the future as well. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for awesome pictures.

We had the pleasure of working with Greg for both our engagement and wedding photos. Both experiences were great and we have so many beautiful photos to choose from! Greg communicated with us well before the wedding to make sure he had a good idea of all the group shots we wanted. Greg's partner Jennifer was there as well focusing on the fine details and making sure everything went smoothly. We got our photos back in less than 2 weeks and were so impressed with the quality of his work. Thank you so much Greg and Jennifer!

You'd be silly not to hire Greg for your photography needs! He has so much experience and so much raw artistic talent - he captured our event with really stunning photos. We searched for a long time to find the right photographer and ultimately decided to go with Greg after seeing the richness of his work - brilliant vivid colors and an artistic eye. In addition to the raw talent, Greg and his beautiful wife Jennifer were such a pleasure to work with - so genuine and sincere. They took so much stress out of the day by being easy going despite the fact that we were running late. They were also able to efficiently organize a large group for the family photos. The overall value, experience, ease, etc was better than I think we could have found anywhere. We had several of our guests tell us that the "photographer really knew what he was doing"...we agree. HIGHLY recommended!!

We have had several wonderful experiences working with Greg. He has shot our family pictures for a few years now at different locations in the San Diego area, including Presidio Park and La Jolla cove. Greg has been timely, professional, and easy going. Whenever we got engaged we knew Greg was our only choice for engagement and wedding photos. During our engagement session at Balboa Park Greg would crack jokes at just the right time to give my fiancé and I the genuine smiles that I wanted in our photographs. Leading up to the wedding, Greg patiently worked with us to create a family shot list to accommodate our very large family. He and Jennifer did a great job managing our family members to get all the family shots we needed. The posed family shots turned out beautifully, but my favorite photos were of all the candid moments Greg was able to capture. He even was able to get some cute shots of our nephews, who were having “toddler moments” throughout the night. Greg exceeded our expectations and we will continue to look to him for all of our photography needs.

We had the pleasure of having Greg Nelsen as our photographer for our wedding last November. I met him at a Bridal Bazaar last Spring and he was very friendly. I set up an appointment with him and my husband-to-be at the time and we also met his beautiful wife. We had a great conversation and we decided to have them photograph our wedding. He was responsive to emails, very flexible throughout the whole planning. We did the engagement photoshoot and it was very relaxed and easy. The pictures turned out beautiful and had some of the pictures used as part of the wedding decorations. Greg was so awesome. He did a sighting of the chapel where we got married before the wedding day. My mom was able to show him the chapel and took some test shots of her. He also ended up driving the best man to the reception after we had some transportation issues. So overall, he was just super nice and easy-going. But of course, that also came with great photographs! We got some previews the day after the wedding! Then two weeks later, as promised, we got the rest. We got so many pictures and he was able to capture all the beautiful moments we remember. Thank you Greg for doing such a fantastic job that all of us enjoyed, and that we will treasure forever. Muchas gracias!

Every aspect of our experience with Greg & Jennifer was fantastic! Thank you so much for everything, and especially the amazing shots! They were very friendly and professional from the beginning. My husband & I were impressed with their attentiveness and quick response throughout the wedding planning, and both were exceptionally helpful on our special day! We were planning a wedding from out-of-state, but Greg made the process that much easier. They even took the time to scope-out our wedding venue and reception site so as to make the photos that much better. Greg was 100% accommodating and didn't charge us any additional fees or surprises, and even brought an additional photographer for our wedding (thank you Courtney!). Working with Greg was fantastic! I'm so glad we had the opportunity to meet them beforehand as it definitely eased our minds, as well as both Greg & Jennifer gave us some great tips and pointers for the ceremony. Greg was very laid back and funny, but professional and respectful. We're not exactly the creative type, but he managed to get quite a few out of us. We got a lot of really great posed pictures, but from the wedding our favorites were the ones that captured candid moments with us and the guests! I would definitely recommend Greg to anyone in CA and coming to San Diego from out of state! It all worked perfectly for us and the price was certainly right! Thank you Greg & Jennifer for an amazing experience and memorable photos!!

We won a free engagement shoot with Greg shortly after our engagement from a bridal show event. Our pictures turned out amazing! He was one of the first vendors we booked and we couldn't have been happier! He is so laid back but organized and professional. He had 6 professional shots to me the next day and they were stunning! People would see them and kept asking who our photographer was. Greg has a number of years of experience and recently started shooting weddings, so when we booked him he only had a few examples which made me hesitant at first. however, you could tell he had true talent and I'm so glad I followed my guy and booked him. Our pictures were beautiful, vibrant and full of color!

Greg is truly phenominal. His art is extraordinary. The best way I can describe him and his work is this... God see's the world and the people He created as beautiful. Even when we don't see our own beauty, we often need to remember to look at ourselves through God's eyes. I think looking at myself and my beloved Steve and our family and friends in Greg's pictures is very much like seeing us in God's eyes. Radiantly beautiful.
Greg was the 1st photographer I met and didn't consider meeting any more.
My then fiance, Steve and I to meet him and his wife, producer, Jennifer. We immediately fell in love with G and J. Not only were they an incredible team, they were passionate about capturing and creating something so spectacularly beautiful. We were confident that our wedding would be the most beautiful wedding ever through Greg's lense.
Greg made us feel so comfortable during our engagement photos. He turned the photos around within 8 hours and produced the most amazing pictures we'd ever seen of ourselves.
Greg had a plan to photograph my autistic/bipolar brother. Knowing that Greg is incredibly patient and has experience with photographing autistic people squeezed my heart. Greg relieved me of so much stress.
On my wedding day, Greg arrived on time with his strikingly beautiful wife, Jennifer, and his fantastic assistant, Courtney. Even my bridesmaids loved him. I witnessed the amazing collaboration of Greg and Jennifer, along with Courtney.
Jennifer was so organized and taking pictures with a very large family was seemless and fun. Watching Greg do acrobatic feets to capture a 2 year old ring bearer and a 3 year old flower girl, while keeping the camera steady and focused was very impressive. The places that G and J scouted out at the venue were perfect.
The very next day, we saw a glimpe of what was captured. The happiest day of Steve's and my life was evident in these pictures.
Thank you Greg for EVERYTHING! Steve and I think the world of you!

Met Greg at the San Diego Bridal Bazaar down at the convention center, and he is the reason went there. My then-fiancee was looking at photographers that were going to be there and got instantly drawn into this pictures and the storytelling. He has a great personality ad our sense of funny. Our engagement photo shoot, the wedding day, everything was great and easy. Didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to our photographs. Jennifer was there to keep everything organized and tended to every detail in the photographs. Greg and Jennifer make one great team you would want with you for your wedding. Naomi was our second photographer on the day of our wedding and she did an amazing job as well. We received few great shots immediately to share with our friends and family and the rest was delivered in perfect time right before Christmas. We will enjoy our photographs years to come and can't thank Greg's Photography enough! Great people, great work, have nothing but good things to say about them.
