Sarah & Aaron Eidson:

We love, love, love all our pictures!  Every session has resulted in amazing pictures that don't look like anything anyone else does!  Mark takes the time to get everything, especially lighting, just right for pictures that are so unique and perfect!  People just cant get over them and are constantly telling me they look like photos from a magazine.  Most importantly, you have captured our family's personality and helped us in preserving this amazing time in our lives.  Thank you.

Michelle & Buddy Steverson: 

Love how fun Mark makes every sesh! 
Beautiful photos and so much fun!

Jamie & Kris Kelly: 
Mark has been our family's number one photographer since the day we were married. 9art has provided our entire family with beautiful memories with every shot. I would recommend him to anyone that wanted quality work that captures you and your family's personality with gorgeous accuracy.

Aimee Danner: 

Mark is a very talented photographer. There are lots of photographers out there but 9 art is awesome in my book!  He likes to take pictures as you are being yourself. Which makes for some spectacular photos. Highly recommend!

Kim & Nathan Arnold:

We loved working with Mark. Our maternity pictures and family pictures are fabulous! We always receive compliments about them. Definitely a great photographer who is easy to work with!

Kris Lowry:

I do not consider myself to be very picturesque , as I do not feel I have a natural smile in photos, but I love the photos we took with Mark. It was less of a photo session and more of spending time with my wife just being ourselves and Mark being there to capture those moments. I would have Mark "capture" those moments again anytime, and hopefully soon. 

Susan Stucky:

I contacted 9art for our maternity and newborn photos after seeing pictures of a friend's wedding shot by Mark. He has a unique eye and style which is really important to me. After our first session, I knew I had picked the right photographer for our family. Mark was funny and took his time with our photos, which turned out awesome!! He was also really quick to get our proofs to us. We're very happy with his work; he'll be photographing our family for many years!!

Jordan & Nate Grotrian:

The best hands down!

Kathryn Shyers:

Mark did my daughter's Senior Pictures and we were wowed by him from the beginning! He has creative, fresh and artistic ideas...not to mention just being an all around nice guy that's very easy to work with! Thanks Mark...we will be returning!!!

Kyle Lewis:

Mark was amazing. He was able to capture some amazing photos for our family session. This was tremendously surprising since there were 17 people in the shoot and 9 of these people were kids under the age of 9. We have been to a few different photographers in town and he was the most interesting and easy to work with. He really captured our family and what our personality is.

Mark is so good at what he does, and I know that we will be using him for years to come. 


Alyssa & Garren Hartley:

Mark is incredible. He listens to everything you say. Really. Things you forget you said, he remembers. Mark got photos I didn't even think to ask for, some based on little things he'd picked up during our conversations that told him what was important to me. He was such a ninja that I honestly don't even know how he was able to get some of the random, candid shots he got. All of our wedding photos are beautiful and real. Mark is patient and flexible. His ideas are the best. And he gets your photos back to you in a very timely fashion. I couldn't be happier. He's worth every dime and more. I'm so glad I was able to have him travel to Kansas City for our wedding. There is no better choice out there! You want Mark!

Teresa & Zach Waggoner: 

My husband and I chose Mark for our engagement and wedding photos for a few reasons. #1 we don't really fancy the cliche photos #2 my husband is EXTREMELY particular on photographers "artistic" ability #3 marks got a killer mustache. Mark has an amazing talent for making your pictures really show your personality and who you are. No matter how weird you might be! ;) He also uses depth, character, and an amazing use of lighting in all of his photos. He's truly amazing at what he does. None of our pictures are cliche and that's exactly how we wanted it! Mark and his team are completely awesome. 

And the mustache... I mean come on it's pretty bad ass.

Kaitlyn & Dak Keeling:

Mark just photographed our wedding this past June, and did a fantastic job. Aside from generally being a good time, Mark was very professional, and took amazing photographs in a very organic and unscripted manner. We would certainly recommend 9Art Photography to anyone for any occasion.

Louis & Amanda Russell: 

Mark is genuine, lively, honest, and brings out the best in everyone around him. He was the perfect choice for our wedding. He helped make our most special day even more enjoyable. His results are brilliant; from the shots to the prints. We could not recommend Mark more!

Tony & Kayla Monteleone:
Fantastic photographer! We really enjoyed working with 9art for our wedding. He was amazing before, during and even after the big day. Mark helped us create a game plan for the day with helpful tips and time saving tricks. On the day of the shoot, he was so stress-free and energetic that everyone was having a great time! After the wedding, he provided us with a gorgeous and extensive collection of photos. Everyone was thrilled with how the photos turned out and we are very happy we went with 9art. I highly recommend!
Tabetha & Dana Meadows:

Mark is amazing - he truly has a gift for capturing what no-one else sees. He's a blast to work with and a truly caring person. He as a gift people! Let him show you what he can do, I promise you'll be amazed.

Emily & Matt Lansford:

Mark was great from the very beginning of the process to the end. He offers everything we required from a photographer – from the talent and personality to the contemporary coffee table book. Mark’s sense of humor and professional attitude made us feel very comfortable on our big day. His photos are more than the traditional stiff shots offered by other photographers; they tell the story of the couple. He does a great job of capturing personality and the little moments that end up being the best photos. We couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos.

Nicky & Brian Junge:

We chose to go with Mark because his prices were comparable with other photographers in the area but his photographs were beautiful and creative in a way that really made them stand out to us. We are very happy with our choice and the beautiful pictures he has produced for us as a result! Mark is relaxed and fun to work with, too, and we have enjoyed getting to know him and his work.

Amanda & Brad Rich:

When we first met Mark we knew he'd be perfect for our big day! He was very easy to work with and has an amazing eye for unique shots that will forever capture the essence of your big day. We still receive numerous compliments on our wedding pictures and are so grateful to Mark for his talent.
