David and Molly were a fabulous team to work with. Our first in-person meeting was so informative and we appreciated David’s professional, chill, authentic demeanor. They were flexible when we changed our engagement session appointment at the last minute due to a rainy weather forecast, and even with my makeup melting off of my face and hair going wild because of the heat and humidity on the day we rescheduled our shoot for, David was able to work some kind of magic and capture AMAZING shots. Needless to say, our wedding day flowed so smoothly with David and Molly photographing formal and candid moments and keeping the Silly Station going all evening for our guests to enjoy. David had family members’ names ready to go when it was time for family photos and effortlessly directed our entire bridal party for photos so that the whole session was carefree and moved along efficiently. Also, as two people who aren’t crazy about being in the spotlight, David made us feel so comfortable, helped us remain present in the moment, and made the whole wedding day photo session fun. You can imagine how excited we were when we were on our way home THE NEXT MORNING and received our sneak peak already! We love every photo so far and can’t wait to see the rest! We highly recommend Spence Photographics!!Sent on 10/25/2017

We can't say enough good things about David and Molly! From our initial meeting to our wedding day, they made us feel so special and comfortable with the process. With the photographs being one of the only physical things you can take away from your wedding day, I spent a lot of time researching to find a photographer that would give us top notch photos. With Spence, the great images you see of other couples in their portfolio that they have photographed, is what you get! David has a real knack for capturing little candid moments that you didn't even know where happening and was equally skilled with guiding us in how to pose for certain shots (let's face it, we aren't models and needed some help with what would look good for photographs). From the moment we started our engagement photo session, I knew we had made the right choice, and it was confirmed again when we got those photos back, and then again on our wedding day! On top of the photos being awesome, we got images to view back very quickly in comparison to what I had heard from friends/family who got married and used other photographers. The day after our engagement shoot and wedding, we had a wonderful preview to look at (literally, not even 24 hours later)! And it wasn't too long after that before we had the blog to view and then all the photos! We couldn't be happier!Sent on 11/29/2016

Beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime!
David and Molly were amazing! We loved working with them and they made both my fiance and I very comfortable and at ease while getting our picture taken. We used the pictures they took for our save the dates as well as our thank you/ holiday cards. Our engagement and wedding photos came out beautiful and we look forward to looking at them for years to come! We also used their photo booth as well and it was a perfect addition to our reception! Everyone had a great time taking photos and it made our wedding so fun! We are so happy we went with them, they were our favorite vendor from our wedding day and we cannot recommend them enough!Sent on 01/09/2019
We've now had the pleasure of working with Spence Photographics , LLC on several events/weddings. David and Molly are such a personable and dynamic duo! Their innate ability to capture LIFE comes through in every shot...nothing canned, always creative and most importantly, making each gig as unique as their clients. So many of our very favorites photos have been shot by this incredible team!
I always look forward to working with Spence Photographics! They've got style, a keen eye for incredible shots, and they are consummate professionals! I highly recommend their expertise to all my clients!
I love working with Spence Photographics. David is a truly excellent photographer -- he knows his way around the technical aspects of what he does and produces gorgeous work as a result. He's also great at putting his subjects at ease and just being a fun person to have around, which is so important in a wedding photographer since they spend the whole day with the couple. Molly is wonderful as well and makes the Silly Station photobooth irresistibly fun for guests. From my point of view as a wedding planner, both David and Molly are easy to reach, happy to communicate about the details of the day, and bring a collaborative attitude to their work. I recommend Spence Photographics without reservation.
