Memories of Bliss was far and away the best vendor we worked with throughout our wedding planning (and beforehand). We have used them for wedding, maternity, newborn, child's baptism, and a private group event (a wine tour bus party for 30 people). Our photos taken by Henry and team are priceless. Even better, Henry and his business manager (and wife) Pam, are super easy to work with. They are timely, responsive and professional. I would recommend them to handle an event of any size or scope. You will not regret hiring them to document your special moment.

Memories of Bliss were one of the best vendors for our wedding. They went out of their way to give us everything we wanted and more for our wedding. They were our photographers for our engagement and wedding photos. We could not have asked for better service and quality photos. We originally only needed photos from our engagement shoot. But, once we met Henry and Pam and told them we were having a destination wedding in Charleston, SC, they were all in to head down south. And, my now husband and I knew that we had to complete the wedding story with them taking the photos. They worked with us regarding our wedding package and travel arrangements. They seem to really want us to have a great experience and went above and beyond to make our day special. We would definitely recommend them to future brides and grooms! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!

When my high school sweetheart and I first started looking for photographers, we had no idea what we were looking for. All we knew is that we wanted our pictures to "look nice". When we met with Henry, he immediately gave us the comfort in knowing that this was his craft and he took it very seriously and his number one goal was to make us happy. I appreciate that Henry took the time to listen to our ideas, while putting in input of his own.

On the day of the wedding, Henry was on time (even if everyone else was not lol) and I appreciated how he interacted with my family. Any time I looked over at Henry, he had a smile on his face and you could tell he truly enjoys what he is doing and takes pride in it.

When we came back from our honeymoon and got the message that our photographs were ready, our jaws dropped to the floor! We look like movie stars. Due to our evening wedding, it was dark outside when it came time to take our "couples" photos, but you would not be able to notice it by the artistic way that Henry shoots.

I am so grateful that my wedding coordinator recommended Memories of Bliss Photography. I will definitely continue to recommend Henry for friends and family, all I need to do is show them ONE photograph and they will be sold!

Thank you again!

I found Memories of Bliss (MOB) on Wedding Wire, and I am so glad that I did! :) Before finding Henry and Pam I had no idea what I would do if I could not fine an amazing photographer. I knew, and also heard from many people that, it is so important to have a great photographer during the wedding planning process. MOB was honestly the third company I looked into, however it was not the last. Once I entered the MOB website it was just something that kept me coming back. I would compare Henry’s site to other competitors, however NO other company could win me over like Memories of Bliss did! After showing my then fiancé the website we chose to set up an appointment with both Henry and Pam as we loved their photography style from things we saw on their website. Each picture was just captured in such a beautiful way, from the angle to the lighting just beautiful! I was a little nervous before our first appointment (as I had obviously never signed a contract with a wedding photographer for a wedding before), and they made us feel so welcome and comfortable. We ended up using Henry for our engagement photos, (which came out AWESOME), and seven hours on the wedding day with two photographers (Henry and Kevin), and we also purchased an album, which we can’t wait to see! By the way, my now Husband stated that Kevin was great to work with as well! The entire MOB TEAM are all wonderful to work with!! :) Every experience with them was amazing. We had so much fun during all our sessions and seeing the final product was the best! On our wedding day the MOB team focus was totally on us this included a phone call a couple of days before to see how everything was going and see if we had any final questions. When other people were being distracting on the wedding day, Henry was there to take charge in a professional and polite manner! Talk about luck, we ended up finding some Great people who do Fantastic work! THANK YOU for all of your Great work and professionalism! :)

MOB was the 1st vendor that I booked. I went into a wedding shop and seen his work on their walls. The lady there gave me his card and said he is good.

From the 1st conversation I had with Mr. Henry he has been nothing but a wealth of knowledge. He explained things to us about a wedding that didnt even have to do with just photography. My husband, our kids and myself went to consult with Mr. Henry and Mrs. Pam in their studio and immediately fell in love with their work. The moment you walk in you get that feeling of home and just great friendly people. They asked us question about US to get to know US and our family. They spoke and laughed with our children, we talked and talked like we were extended family. They made us feel so comfortable. Funny thing is my husband told them (and everybody) about the special shoes he just had to have. Few months later Mr. Henry called and said hey we are in PA and I think I see the shoes Darron wants. Im going to send you a picture and let me know. Well of course they were the shoes and husband acted silly. Do you know Mr. Henry bought them shoes. My husband tells everyone about that. Just little things that make you happy to meet people and work with them.

Too make this long review short Mr. Henry and Mrs. Pam of MOB are just phenomenal people. They take pride in their work and to provide a great quality of shots. I have so many pictures that I do not now what to do with them. But all in all I love this people and would recommend them to anyone and of course work with them again.

We just wanted someone to take pictures. (So We Thought!)
We were planning a small and intimate house wedding to be held on the deck of our home. The general between the two of us is “just get somebody to take pictures or use those little cameras used as favors” and get the pictures from the guests. That way we would have a lot of candid shots. Oh How Wrong!!
Little did we know that our choice in photographers would be the key to our joy in sharing our lasting memories of what turned out to be the best day of our lives together.
Henry personally met with me and my fiancé twice before the wedding to ascertain what we expected photographically for that day. Henry Spencer of Memories of Bliss took time to show us what we should expect for that day, choices in photo albums and portraits, and took the time to go over the contract intricately. We met again to view the venue (my house) and make suggestions as to where pertinent photos should be taken.
On my wedding day Henry Spencer and his team blew me out of the water with the professionalism of this company from start to finish. Tony, one of the photographers of the Bliss team, arrived two (2) hours before the ceremony as to capture the events leading up to the ceremony. He was very personable, polite, and knowledgeable.
To my pleasant surprise, just as my ceremony was to begin, Henry and his assistant Pam arrived from a wedding scheduled prior to mine. They jumped right into action taking photographs and directing the guests in certain shots. Needless to say we loved the outcome. The pictures are beautiful! The video is classy and the Memories of Bliss team made me look gorgeous!
The Memories of Bliss team, personal and professional in every way, was extremely successful in capturing every emotion filled aspect of my wedding. I would choose no other photographer. Exceptional Service! Exceptional Product!

Henry and his team have allowed me to always reflect back on my special day. He listened to my laundry list of requests for the types of pictures I wanted and he executed the job beyond what I imagined. It was also a very cold day, and somehow the pictures of my husband didn't show that at all due to his assistant Pam who directed our angles to get the perfect shot. Memories of Bliss also created a personal app for our pictures to send to our family and friends to view the photos as well (How neat!!) I didn't even know that existed. If you are looking for a photographer that gives you a quality experience and delivers a quality product, book Memories of Bliss Photography.
