Our many years of experience in shooting weddings and engagements comes from our background in newspaper and magazine photojournalism. Capturing you as you are, naturally, in your own favorite places, is our specialty. We strive to be "hands-off" in our approach to shooting and give you minimal direction so your true personalities show through in the images. We find natural, organic light to capture the moments as they are. We cannot wait to meet your families and friends, and capture all of the special moments, and fun and unique personalities. As your two families come together to celebrate the forming of a new family, we are honored to be a part of it all, capturing images that will last a lifetime. Read less

We are thrilled that we chose Spence Photographics for our wedding. David and Molly are extremely warm, kind, professional, talented, and dedicated! David really tries to get to know and capture your style as a couple. During the planning phase, they are quick to respond and very flexible; they really want you to be happy. They also offer great suggestions and guidance for the indecisive bride (that's me!). Throughout, communication with them is always clear and personal. At the wedding itself, David is everywhere and yet never intrusive. His work ethic is impressive- he doesn't stop for one minute! Many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with his dedication and overall presence. The Silly Station was a fabulous addition and produced some truly hilarious pictures we will treasure forever (worth every penny- trust me!). We have only seen the "sneak peek" photos of our wedding, and they are stunning. We can't wait to see the rest!!! We are so grateful to David and Molly for helping preserve so many memories of our wedding day. We would highly recommend Spence Photographics for their outstanding quality, value, and overall awesomeness.

My husband and I were so extremely pleased with David and Spence Photographics. From the first meeting to seeing our engagement and wedding photos we couldn't have been happier with our experience. We were planning the wedding out of state making things a little difficult but David was amazing communicating with us! We went through Spence Photographics for our Save the Dates and our Wedding invitations-both came out beautifully! David was great working with us through the entire process he really cares about his clients. Due to being out of state we had to take our engagement photos just 2 days before our wedding but David was great to accommodate us and our schedules. During the day of the wedding David and his crew we're fantastic. He was able to capture all the joy and happiness experienced on that day. We were so extremely pleased with all the photos. The hardest part of this entire process is deciding which photos we like best! I would absolutely recommend David and Spence Photographics to anyone in search of a great photographer!

Dave and Molly are out of this world.
Leading up to the wedding, they couldn't have been more flexible with our timing. Coming from across the country, we didn't have time for a separate engagement shoot, so they worked around our schedule to make sure that we had some extra and very special pictures.
On the day of the wedding, we were floored with the energy, dedication, and professionalism that they both exuded. Every time we turned the corner, Dave was there, getting the best shot. Somehow he managed to shoot our ceremony from 360 degrees and up close without anyone noticing. I've never seen a photographer with that energy. They also knew the exact moments when to pull us away for special moments and when to let us just be the couple with our friends and family.
After the wedding, we we've been able to see the outcomes and have been thrilled with the results. The photos paint a picture, capture all the right moments, and are just aesthetically beautiful.
In addition, Dave and Molly have perfected the art of letting you know that they're thinking about you. Before the wedding, we received a "welcome" gift with some goodies and information about all that they offer. Since the wedding, we've received numerous packages with sneak peaks of photos while they were still being edited, cute little photo books, etc. They care about their couples and they show it through and through. We could not recommend them more :)

After the wedding, we we've been able to see the outcomes and have been thrilled with the results. The photos paint a picture, capture all the right moments, and are just aesthetically beautiful.
In addition, Dave and Molly have perfected the art of letting you know that they're thinking about you. Before the wedding, we received a "welcome" gift with some goodies and information about all that they offer. Since the wedding, we've received numerous packages with sneak peaks of photos while they were still being edited, cute little photo books, etc. They care about their couples and they show it through and through. We could not recommend them more :) Read less

David and Molly were the best! They worked with our crazy schedule to meet with us and the package we got was such a great value! We are having a hard time deciding which picture we was for our coffee table book because there are too many amazing photos! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day and David captured all of it, including the beautiful clouds in the sky and our awesome venue! We hope to work with David and Molly again for more photos in the future!

We LOVED David! Talk about a man who loves his job! Our wedding party was young and wild ! Lets just say he knew how to capture all of us in the moment. It was fabulous working with him on our rainy wedding day. The silly station is a MUST! I heard it was busy from the moment the reception started to the very end :) We are so excited to see all the photos from our special day and we have every bit of confidence in him that they will be absolutely perfect. Plus who doesn't love a man who wears chucks?!

My husband and I truly enjoyed working with David Spence and having him capture amazing pictures from our wedding. He was always professional and seemed to always be available for communication. David captured our engagement session all the way in Ocean City, Md as that location was special to my husband and I as that's where we first met. Then for our wedding at Mt St Mary's in Emmittsburg, Md. The pictures from both events turned out so amazing and we were so happy with all of them. We were referred to David by our reception venue and so happy that we chose him to capture our special day! We would gladly recommend him to anyone!

David and Molly Spence of Spence Photographics (SP) were an absolute joy to work with for both our engagement shoot and our wedding. I really cannot say enough about them. Hands down, hiring them was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Throughout the entire process SP was helpful, patient, encouraging and friendly. Not long after we booked them for our Fall 2013 wedding we had to change the wedding venue and the date. SP was extremely accommodating and patient with us as we went back and forth about different dates and different venues. We finally landed on October 12th and everything worked out perfectly! Their pricing is reasonable and they give you the flexibility to adjust your photo package to fit you and your day. Our engagement shoot was fun and laid back. David Spence met my fiancé and me in Baltimore City for an afternoon and we had the chance to take pictures in multiple parts of the city. For the wedding we booked the silly station, which was a HUGE hit with all of the guests. Everyone had an amazing time, and the photos were awesome! Molly Spence set up and supervised the photobooth at our venue; it was really nice having both of them there on the day of! Every step of the way, from getting ready in the morning, arriving at the church, the ceremony and the reception, SP captured unbelievable memories for me, my husband and our families and friends. We truly have amazing images from our wedding day, and it wouldn't have been nearly as fun without Spence Photographics! We were able to view all of our images online about two months after our wedding day and we received the final USB images about one month after that. David and Molly answered every question, comment or concern I had in a timely and friendly manner (even when I was pestering them for my final images, I was so impatient/excited to see them)! I would absolutely recommend Spence Photographics to friends and family, and we definitely plan to work with them in the future!

David is awesome to work with. I loved our engagement photos and wedding photos. I liked that David and his assistant (who on our wedding day was Stefanie) got photos from some really neat angles and didn't crowd us or our guests during the ceremony. David gave some little tips when we needed them, but mostly let us go with the flow, which was really nice. He was also very responsive to making some tiny edits that I wanted. Most of all, David is just a really friendly, laid-back guy who made us so comfortable during our engagement session and our wedding day. I also shopped around for photographers a bit and found that Spence Photographics had much better pricing than competitors.

We love our photos and will cherish them forever!

David was wonderful to work with. If you are looking for somebody who is laid back, easy to work with, and artistic, David is your guy. We had some concerns when not everybody on our list (must take pictures) did not show up, but David kindly let us come view the untouched photos to find some relatives we were concerned about missing. The photos of the wedding showed how much fun the day was, not how well we could pose for pictures. I really appreciate that.

A wedding is a one-shot deal and a photographer only gets one chance to get it right. David Spence has a fabulous eye for composition and beautifully memorialized every important moment of the ceremony and the day that surrounded it. He quickly knocked out all the requisite formal shots and unobtrusively documented the joyous preparations as well as the celebrations that followed.

All three of those components required different skills and David Spence has them all. He could not have been easier to work with or to communicate with before the wedding and in the weeks that followed. His professionalism on all counts is more than we could have hoped for.

He met with our son and his fiance for a pre-wedding shoot in order to meet them and they could not have found it any more relaxed or enjoyable.

Thank you, David and Molly, for giving us exactly what we need to remember that very happy day in our family’s story. We will recommend you without reservation whenever we have the opportunity.

We had a great experience working with Spence Photo. They made it easy on us during the wedding prep time and David traveled all the way from Frederick to Annapolis on both Friday and Saturday of our wedding weekend and he was pleasure to have around with family and friends. Very easy-going - we were really able to enjoy the day without feeling like we spent a huge amount of time posing for photos. We also had the Silly Station booth which the guests really enjoyed. In the end we ended up with great photos for a nice value compared to the handful of other photographers we inquired with.

I helped my sister plan her wedding and recommended Spence Photographics right from the start of the planning. Molly and Dave are friends of mine from college and I've been lurking on their Facebook page and website for a while now, but had no reason to use their services...until this year! From initial contact all the way through to the final photos on the website, the service was top notch and easy. Dave was accommodating with our wacky schedules and geographic challenges and my sister and her now husband felt really comfortable right from the start. The images from the wedding are stunning and I can't figure out where Dave and his assistant were for half of them! They were discreet but managed to capture everything important. The candids are my favorite- they froze some special moments in time for me and my sister and I can't thank them enough for that. I've told everyone I know that they have to use Spence Photographics for the special moments in their lives- they won't be disappointed!

We started looking for a photographer the same time we started looking for the venue. It was actually at a venue that we were looking through a book, that was suppose to make us fall in love with the venue, but it made me fall in love with the photos instead. I made a mental note of the name and the little logo. Once we came home and looked through David’s blog, I knew we had to meet him. What I wanted most from our wedding photos was someone who would catch the little moments. Sure, I want the posed family photos- but those small glimpses; my soon-to-be husband laughing in his room before he’s getting ready, the emotion of the room when my father walked in and saw me in my wedding dress…that’s what I wanted more than anything. And I just didn’t see that anywhere else.
David was so easy to work with. He’s so nice, and he says “do your own thing” when you’re out on your engagement photos which put my (then) fiancé at total ease. It’s normal to feel awkward when someone’s snapping away at you- but David made us feel so comfortable! When he arrived on the wedding day it was like one of our friends had come-it was no big deal (thanks to the engagement session!). It goes without saying that the photos come out amazing- you can see that for yourself on his blog/website. I just want brides and grooms to know you would be hard pressed to find a more down to earth, easy to get along with, nice photographer who you will feel totally comfortable with, who will capture every single moment (we had so many small details at our wedding and I have photos of all of them!), and who is willing to do anything to make you feel great about your experience. He is officially our photographer for life. When we’re ready for babies- he’s getting a phone call!

David was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I were actually sad to say goodbye to him when the night was over! He was not only so professional, but also fun, easy going, and just a joy to be around. From the second we met David we knew we wanted to work with him. He shot amazing engagement shots for us and created gorgeous save the dates before our wedding. During the wedding, David was able to take many of the posed shots we requested while focusing on those candid shots that I so wanted during the reception, as well. I didn't even notice he was there half the time while he shot away! Also, did I mention it was the hottest day of the year? That didn't seem to bother David...he didn't miss a beat! And his silly station! My friends and family loved it. How fun! I am so impressed with David and you will be too. If you are searching for a wedding photographer that is professional, easy going, and the best in the business...well your search has ended...David is your guy.

David Spence doesn't just take pictures, he writes fairytales with a camera.

In the years before my October 2011 wedding, I visited Dave's blog to see his latest shoots, knowing that he'd be the only one I'd trust to photograph the biggest day of our lives.

His sheer talent, knack for detail, professionalism and fun personality makes him a pleasure to work with. From day one, you know that no matter what the journey leading up to the wedding holds, in the end, Dave will deliver the beauty and love that every bride envisions for their photographs. I cannot express to brides how important it is to not worry about what is arguably one of the most important parts of your wedding--wthe memories.

Brides always give the advice: take it all in, the day goes so fast, you won't remember the little things. And that is so true.
Well, with Dave's photos, you not only remember the little things--you find moments, emotions even, in your photos that you never knew you experienced amid the whirlwind of your wedding day. Next to how GORGEOUS the photos are, our family and guests commented most on how impressed they were that he didn't miss A THING.

Dave not only took our engagement shots, but designed our Save-the-Dates. People STILL are raving about those. Our wedding photos were the BEST many said they had EVER seen. Our photos made their way to the inbox of dignitaries , who wanted to know who this photographer was! People I don't even know have contacted me to receive his contact information.

He also designed our thank-you cards, which were a collage of our favorite wedding photos. So unique and beautiful, people are framing them!

In the end, we almost felt that we'd paid too little. He could easily, and deserves, to be one the biggest photographers in the Baltimore-Washington metro area., and his rates should compete with the biggest companies in the market. His packages are also GENEROUS in their options, when compared to other photographers (whose work is not as unique and vibrant, in my opinion.)

I'm most excited that our journey with Dave Spence is not over. He will be our family photographer forever. I can't wait for him to capture all of the other beautiful milestones we have ahead.

Spence Photographics was, hands down, the best vendor I contracted for my wedding day! My husband and I met David Spence about 8 months before our wedding and we were initially impressed by his photojournalistic skill and ability to capture incredible wedding day moments that just looked so natural. My husband and I knew that we wanted a wedding photographer with a more photojournalistic approach, someone who would really capture candid moments and find unique and interesting ways to feature our bridal party without the standard awkward poses I've seen so many times. David did that and more and I can honestly say that our pictures from our wedding are above and beyond my favorite memories of our day.

Some of the aspects I liked the most about David's pictures and professional style include: the sharp and vibrant colors in the photographs; captured every little detail that we put into our wedding day up to the big moments like the first dances and cutting the cake with professionalism and taste, making sure he captured all the pictures that we wanted such as special pics with Grandmas and friends, gentle reminders throughout the day of what was coming up next, extremely flexible with choosing dates and locations for our engagement photo shoot, very responsive to email and phone calls and probably more that I just can't think of at the moment!

Every time we show pictures of our wedding to friends and family, we hear compliments to our photographer and how David really went above and beyond to capture incredible pictures of our wedding day (at one point, we was lying flat on the ground to get just the right angle for our first dance!) and so many friends and couples have asked for his information for when their special day comes.

Spence Photographics was, hands down, the best vendor I contracted for my wedding day! My husband and I met David Spence about 8 months before our wedding and we were initially impressed by his photojournalistic skill and ability to capture incredible wedding day moments that just looked so natural. My husband and I knew that we wanted a wedding photographer with a more photojournalistic approach, someone who would really capture candid moments and find unique and interesting ways to feature our bridal party without the standard awkward poses I've seen so many times. David did that and more and I can honestly say that our pictures from our wedding are above and beyond my favorite memories of our day.

Some of the aspects I liked the most about David's pictures and professional style include: the sharp and vibrant colors in the photographs; captured every little detail that we put into our wedding day up to the big moments like the first dances and cutting the cake with professionalism and taste, making sure he captured all the pictures that we wanted such as special pics with Grandmas and friends, gentle reminders throughout the day of what was coming up next, extremely flexible with choosing dates and locations for our engagement photo shoot, very responsive to email and phone calls and probably more that I just can't think of at the moment!

Every time we show pictures of our wedding to friends and family, we hear compliments to our photographer and how David really went above and beyond to capture incredible pictures of our wedding day (at one point, we was lying flat on the ground to get just the right angle for our first dance!) and so many friends and couples have asked for his information for when their special day comes.

The bottom line is you can rest assured if you book Spence Photographics for your wedding day pictures, he will do whatever it takes to give you stunning, beautiful, colorful, lovely wedding pictures to cherish forever. Read less

Great Pictures AND Great Price ... My now husband can tell you that wedding photography was something I really enjoyed looking into until I saw the expense of the photographers I liked. After a long search (probably the vendor category we meet the most vendors in) we enthusiastically decided on David at spence photographics. A-maz-ing. From the initial meeting to the last moments of the reception, David was exactly what I wanted in both communication as a client and picture style as a camera shy bride. He felt like one of the wedding party and best of all we love every one of our pictures!

We were so thrilled with our wedding photos, and with David. It was a pleasure to work with him--from the beginning he was very easy-going yet professional, which definitely helped to make our wedding a less stressful event. He scouted out our venue ahead of time to find the best picture locations (a time-saver since it was outdoors on a farm), and many of our guests commented on how much they liked our photos--especially the candids--and the photographer. We also appreciated the fact that he was willing to design a package for us to suit our budget.

In short, David was simply great--we heartily recommend him!

Easy to work with, unobtrusive, willing to travel and he takes amazing pictures at a great price. We barely noticed David during the wedding and reception but the shots he got were amazing. He was really able to capture the magical moments of our entire day which was really important to us when we were researching photo-journalism style wedding photographers. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

I cannot recommend Spence Photographics highly enough. If you’re looking for that mix of a fun, creative, highly affordable wedding photographer, David is your guy.

We inquired and met with a number of photographers who did beautiful work, but their prices were astronomical and they charged for every single extra or additional request, pricing themselves right out of our budget. There were also the very affordable photographers whose work lacked originality.

David really captures the warmth and love between his subjects, and we loved his use of color that just seemed to pop right off the screen. He was also very easy to work with and has a great sense of humor, which makes being in front of the camera for 8+ hours much easier to bear. In addition, we liked David's flexibility and felt that he would accommodate any last minute changes or requests we had and would do it graciously.

On the big day, David and his assistant/wife Molly were very prompt and completely unobtrusive. But make no mistake, they were working their butts off, as evidenced by the thousands of photos they took – nearly all of which were beautiful. Looking through them all later, we loved having a nearly minute-by-minute timeline of images from throughout the day. These are moments we might have otherwise never seen because as the brides, we were just so overwhelmed! We forgot things or missed things, but David made sure to capture it all.

David and Molly work like a well-oiled machine. They know exactly what needs to get done and they make it happen with absolutely no stress to the wedding party. Yet, they aren’t cookie cutter. Every photo is original and so expressive and behind every photo is David – a great photographer, working to capture the best and most beautiful moments of your wedding.

David was great from the engagement pictures to the wedding. They were awesome at the wedding taking pictures that were amazing, totally leveraging off of the great venue. I would highly recommend Spence Photographics for any special moments you want captured. The silly station was a great addition to the reception! I will totally use them for future family pictures and recommend them to anyone else who needs a high quality photographer!

I loved working with both David and Molly of Spence Photographics. Their laid-back, down-to-earth personalities won me over along with the incredible pictures they capture. I never felt like they were trying to sell me something or pressure me into choosing their photography services. My husband and I were nervous about having our pictures taken during the photo sessions, but the photographer did a great job of directing us and keeping the mood light. Our wedding guests liked the fact that the photographer stayed in the background and was not even noticeable during much of the reception. They also loved the wedding pictures and still comment on what a wonderful time they all had.

One thing I didn't realize is that I would have to purchase engagement photos myself at $2-$3 a photo to display at the reception. I thought I would have access to the photos in order to make cheaper copies at CVS or RiteAid. The pictures looked great because they were high quality, but it was just an extra payment I hadn't planned for so close to the wedding date.

Dave did an amazing job every step of the way, from taking our engagement photos to shooting our wedding. I arrived late to our engagement session and Dave did not complain one time and the pictures came out amazing. As for our wedding, Dave went above and beyond. Aside from taking awesome photos (while managing to be invisible) he also helped fix a technical issue when our slide show presentation did not work. All in all, I highly recommend Dave for your photography needs. The only reason I gave less than 5 stars for responsiveness is because, like with any busy photographer, it can take a bit of time to get photos back or a sample of an album, etc., but even that issue is not bad at all.
