About

Photojournalism with an eye for beauty
My photography stresses authenticity, capturing natural beauty and emotion in order to truly tell the story of your wedding day. These moments are about you and so I am unobtrusive---following, mostly, to record real experiences as they happen and directing only when required. However, if you also seek that bit of traditional or fine art flair in candid-environmental portraiture, we can pause for those special shots that give you the look you鈥檒l want to remember on your wedding day. Nevertheless, even formal portraiture on your wedding day is about your feeling in that particular moment, so I work quickly, encouraging freedom of movement and expression. Natural beauty and emotion often come best with little or no direction. Group photographs are, of course, included as you may want to memorialize the gathering of family and friends.

While the quality of the final product can be seen by viewing my porfolio or by seeing my most recent work on my blog, you must experience my professionalism and sense of respect and solemnity in order to discover why most of my work comes from referrals and why Spiering Photography brides and grooms recommend me again and again.

I take great pride in creating a faithful record of the wedding day that is classic and beautiful, so that it will not just last fifty years--you'll still be in love with it then.

Positive in every way

We were very glad that Craig was available on our wedding date and completely impressed after our wedding. FYI we wanted a photographer who was professional, laidback, and efficient, and did not need too much direction on shooting our Catholic wedding Mass; we were not looking for highly posed or edited/filtered photos, or a photographer who would be with us all day or anything too involved. If you are looking for a friendly photographer who is incredibly efficient (we attended half of our cocktail hour!!), blends into the background well, and directs a group very well, plus takes tons of quality, natural-looking photos, he is definitely the way to go. Amazing photos, amazing value (less than half the price other wedding photographers asked in the Leesburg area), and our families/bridal parties were impressed with how well he directed groups and left us with plenty of time to actually enjoy the wedding day. Special mention that as Catholics having a big nuptial Mass, it was a relief that Craig knew exactly what moments to capture and how to capture them without accidentally being obtrusive or disrespectful.
