Highly recommend!

We highly recommend Spence Photographics to anyone looking for a photographer. We were in awe when we received our beautiful wedding photos, and so many people have told us that they are among the most beautiful wedding photos they have EVER seen! We agree! We thought the price was very reasonable and David was SUCH a pleasure to work with--very personable, go-with-the-flow, and professional. So happy to have had Spence Photographics capture our big day!

Excellent Experience

As two people who hate to have our photos taken or be at the center of attention, David was fantastic at putting us at ease and making the experience an enjoyable one. His pictures are absolutely beautiful and he was so easy to work with. We just received our first preview photos from our wedding and we cant stop raving about them. David and his wife Molly were both extremely professional and responsive, helping us at every step of the process and making this camera shy couple excited to be in front of the camera.

Our wedding photos are AMAZING!!

We chose Spence Photographics for our September 2021 wedding and are totally blown away by the pictures we got!! We can’t recommend David highly enough. He was wonderful to work with – warm, down to earth, and clearly passionate about his craft. He captured so many special moments throughout the day that we’re having a really hard time choosing our favorites! We really appreciated the super speedy, helpful communication from Molly in the months leading up to the event and were impressed by how quickly we got a sneak peek of the day.

We also booked the open-air Silly Station photo booth – our guests loved it!! It was a really fun addition to the event and a lovely keepsake for guests – the booth prints two photo strips for each take, and there’s an online gallery with all the photos.

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.
