Spencer Photography Inc.
Larry Spencer is a gifted photographer and we absolutely love his work. While he is a bit more expensive than the average photographer to limit his clients, his work and the ends he goes to in order to get great pictures are more than worth it! His price included the wedding album and engagement sessions - as many as we wanted.
In my opinion, there are more reasonable vendors for your money but he does turn out a good product.
Vendor response to review
I was a bit surprised by this post since my client seemed extremely happy throughout the entire process, save at the very end, while delivering their album, there was a misunderstanding regarding the "copyrights" for their engagement session (this session, by the way, is included at no additional charge in our initial investment). This was a bit confusing since our policy is very clear and our pricing is explained thoroughly throughout the entire process. Also, we would have happily addressed any issues that the client had if they had been brought to our attention prior to posting this review.
We do our very best to go above and beyond for our clients. Multiple meetings before the wedding day; photo sessions to prepare them for the wedding day; blogging images from their wedding day the day after the wedding; having the wedding proofs ready the week after the wedding. However, the client does have a responsibility to understand pricing and policy when it is explained to them and especially when it is written and they sign off on it.
Let me start by saying Larry and his assistant Renee are awesome! From the beginning, Larry was so accommodating. Once we met him, we fell in love with him and his work. He was personable, professional, down to earth, talented, and hilarious. He made it clear that this was his profession/lively hood and he put all he had into it. One of the perks of Spencer Photography is the pre-wedding sessions. They allow you to get comfortable with him and vice versa which makes the wedding day easier. The bridal session was absolutely amazing! I was able to get my hair/make-up done and put my dress on for pictures. It made everything more real and exciting!! The pictures were beautiful. It allowed us to take less of just me on the wedding day and tweak things that didn't work with my hair etc. The day of the wedding, Larry showed up at 7 am to the salon and was with us until 10:30 pm. Rarely will you find someone who is with you all day long. A few pictures were posted on Facebook that night and all of the were up for viewing when we got back from the honeymoon.
All of these are great perks but the most important thing is the pictures. They are the most gorgeous, unique, creative, and stunning pictures I have ever seen. From the pre-wedding photos to the wedding photos, they were better than I could have imagined. He and his assistant captured moments that made our album special and different. He also makes the traditional photos on the altar look non-traditional/posed. Anyone that has seen our album or pictures is envious! The lighting and color of the photos makes all the difference from other photographers. In short, Larry was incredible. It was worth every penny spent and I will be hiring him in the future. I cannot say enough good things about him, his assistant, and his work. The pictures are absolutely amazing and will cherish how he captured the day!
Larry Spencer is beyond amazing/fantastic/incredible!!! Not only is his work GORGEOUS, he really takes interest in creating the perfect image of your wedding day. We did not want a videoagrapher, so we wanted to make sure we hired a photographer that would capture every detail of our special day. Larry did that and so much more. Not to mention you also get to have an engagement session and a bridal session included in the cost. This man is beyond talented and has been awesome to work with! You seriously can't go wrong with choosing Spencer Photography, Inc.!!!!!!
Larry Spencer did an amazing job on our wedding day! The pictures are absolutely beautiful and we've gotten so many great comments about them!
Larry Spencer's work is art! He was incredible and we loved working with him on our fairy tale wedding! Our pictures are amazing - he's super fun to work with and he captures moments you may never even remember until you see the photos!
Without a doubt Spencer Photography was our best decision when it came to our wedding on July 7, 2007(well besides actually getting married that is...) Larry, along with his assistant Marla, were always professional yet however also were extrememly personable. By the end of our wedding day we considered and still consider them close friends. We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our walls are filled to the max with his photography which continues to evoke emotion reminding us of one of the most important days in our lives. He was able to capture our day perfectly in its entirety without placing an ounce of stress on us. Larry totally took the reigns which allowed us to just enjoy our day. His photography skills go beyond anything we could have imagined. He certainly has a gift when it comes to not only cameras but also with people. After the wedding day, we admired his flexibility between our vision and his, to create a breathtaking album. We continue to recommend him to anyone and everyone who is in need of photography. We can't wait to begin having children so that Spencer Photography can fill picture frames with, what we know will be beyond amazing, family photos.
Larry has such an artistic view and can capture that with his photos. Check his work out it speaks louder than words!!!
Spencer Photography, their work speaks for itself and their service is equally spectacular as their quality of photos.
