    Mary and David are wonderful. They captured all of the important moments and so many more. Every image was beautiful and meaningful. They are fun to work with and put all the guests at ease.

    Our experience with Mary and Dave was absolutely wonderful. Mary was so great and so much fun to work with for our engagement pictures, then our wedding day... Oh our wedding day. Looking through our online gallery, I fall even more in love with their work. Time was an issue at the wedding because of the venue's timeline, so a couple shots didn't happen, but that's life. Honestly, there were so many beautiful pictures to make up for the missing ones, that it isn't really a huge deal in the long run.

    We enjoyed working with Mary and Dave. I liked the fact that there is two photographers that way you get the whole wedding not just part of the day. The price included all pics from wedding, engagement session, and a signature board for guest to sign. Well worth the money I think.

    Mary and Dave were awesome photographers for our wedding. I am so glad they were familiar with The Firehouse, because they knew where to shoot and did not waste time. They were professional, knowledgeable and efficient. We are very happy with our wedding photos! Thank you again!

    We LOVE our wedding pics. The whole event went very smooth and Mary was able to work within a very tight time frame to capture all the images we wanted. She is very organized and thorough. Thanks again for everything Mary!

    Mary & David made everything so very easy! They worked around our schedule & captured some of the most beautiful moments & pictures that I’ve ever seen! Even though I took my time choosing which pictures I wanted edited, they were quick to get them edited & back to me! I would highly recommend them to any friends or family!

    Mary and Dave are an awesome team, they exceeded our expectations, were friendly, open to all our picture suggestions (Mary even had my pinterest open on her phone on our wedding day so she made sure to capture the images I was wanting), our pictures came out incredible and they captured every moment of our wedding and reception perfectly. We highly recommend them!

    We highly recommend this vendor. There are so many great things we can say about Mary and Dave. They were so phenomenal. From the day we met them, we knew they were going to be our wedding photographers. They are friendly, outgoing, and they do amazing work at a price that won't break the bank (not to mention they have payment plans that make it super easy to afford). We got the lowest package, and they still treated us amazing, I felt like I got the best package possible. I even found myself finding any excuse to come in and see them. The day of the wedding, Mary stayed with the girls and David stayed with the guys before the first look. They were at the venue even before we were in preparation for our First Look. The whole day I honestly forgot they were there besides when we were doing our posed portraits of course. We got a preview within 4 or 5 days on facebook of a few pictures, and all of the pictures were online in their gallery within 72 hours. We then had to choose 225 pictures to get on the CD's, and we ended up liking so many of the pictures that we paid extra to get every single one of our pictures. After we decided this, our pictures came within The disks came in an adorable case with one of our pictures, and the disks even had pictures of our day on them. Mary and Dave - you guys rock, and we sincerely appreciate everything you guys have done for us! We will continue using you for all of our future photography needs!

    Mary and Dave are an awesome pair! She is great at portraiture and he is great at photojournalism. They caught all of the important moments and details of our wedding. Dave caught a ton of moments and I didn't even notice he was present.
    Both are open to any ideas/suggestions. They are super professional and fun to work with. They worked well with our other vendors. Mary was so calm that it helped me stay calm during the day.

    Our pictures turned out fantastic. So many people have commented on how great they turned out. I can't wait to see the album!

    I don't think you could find a better pair at such a reasonable price. I can't sing their praises enough! Highly recommended!

    Mary and Dave were so fun to work with on our wedding. They can see all the beauty in an area and work to make your pictures capture it. They are very professional knowing every shot they need to capture and making sure it happens without interfering with the day. Both Mary and Dave love to do fun shots as well so if you have ideas for what really shows who you are let them know and they will make it work. We did some super hero shots with our groomsmen and they came out great. One of the biggest things that helped me pick them for our wedding was everything we got for the price. They give every wedding a high quality disc with all the pictures from the entire day so you can go and make prints later on your own as well as any prints or books they make for you. Check them out for great people who are great photographers at a great price.

    Mary and Dave are the most professional and fun photographers we've had the opportunity to work with. We knew from our very first meeting with them that they were the perfect fit for us as a couple. They flew out to Disneyland to meet us for our engagement photo session and we all had a blast... it felt like hanging out with friends as opposed to a hired vendor, not to mention the photos turned out fantastic! Mary helped me with my husband's wedding gift; a tasteful and beautiful boudior session. He absolutely loves the photos! And now, just after our wedding, all of our photos are stunning. They made sure to capture all of our "must have" moments and then some. All of our bridal party has commented on how easy and fun they were to work with. Most of the time we didn't even realize they were around, they were so well hidden. We absolutely love them and have found two new friends for life. We will be using Mary and Dave for all of our family portraits to come!!

    My daughter and I went to a Wedding fair in Modesto and walked into the events main doors and there was Mary Gillespie's Photography and the second table... Mary literally stuck her hand out and shook our hands... She and her husband David were wearing matching maroon shirts... We looked at her photo's and she gave us her information... we moved on...

    The rest of our walk around the wedding fair was a bit disappointing when we realized how unresponsive the rest of the vendors were... Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that the wedding fair was not useful... we just found "certain" vendors that stuck out... We were handed some brochures and given polite hello's... but ended up going back to Mary Gallespie's table...

    The prices were reasonable and on our wedding day they handed out cards to our guests to their site with our picture on it giving them information on how to access our wedding pictures... This was really neat... We were also given the disks with ALL of our wedding photos on it... all 1082 pics... talk about amazing...

    I got my dream wedding photos despite all that went wrong that day

    Mary and David were wonderful! We had a snafu where we had to get married outside instead of inside, which caused windy hair in the pictures and they edited all of my photos to reduce the wind-blown effect. The photos are irreplaceable and I will cherish them more so because of the hard work that went into making them perfect for us to enjoy for years to come!
