Cleveland, Ohio Wedding Photographer

For the last 22 years, I have absolutely loved documenting beautiful Cleveland weddings. From Severance Hall and University Circle, to the Westside Market and The Flats, I have documented weddings all over our great city. I've learned, through experience, that the best pictures are those unplanned, candid moments. Moments that are unexpected and go by in an instant. Those are the pictures that I want to capture for you. So that when it comes time to look back on your wedding day, you can feel each moment in every photo.
As many of the wedding photographers near me can tell you, there are a TON to choose from in Northeast Ohio. And, with so many wedding photographers in Cleveland, choosing the right one can be overwhelming.
My goal is to take the stress out of that decision for you. You can be assured that your day will captured beautifully and artistically, yet naturally without being obtrusive. I've just about seen it all over the last 22 years. I want to share my experience with you so that you have a worry free day.

Certified as a “Master Photographer (M.Photog) by The Professional Photographers of America in 2012. Originally from Akron, Ohio, I now consider myself a Cleveland local through and through. My home office is minutes from downtown Cleveland. My sons, Elliot and Simon, were both born in nearby Mayfield, Heights, Ohio. Cleveland isn’t just a place where I work, Cleveland is my home.

Photographic Artistry

Although the majority of your day in photos will be candid moments, we always plan time for creative photography. I try to create works of art that you will want to hang on your wall and share with your family and friends. These pictures don’t take long to create but they will last forever.

Spencer Photography was second to none for our family photo shoot. Having looked at a variety of photographers in the Akron/Cleveland area, Larry's work stands head and shoulders above anything else we saw. His knowledge, experience and true artistry shines through not just in the phone sized images I could see online, but most especially in the physical prints we saw in a family member's house. When the opportunity opened up for a session, we were so very exicted for the chance. During the session, Larry's selection of venue, deep understanding of light, and passion for his art was in clear evidence, making for a joyful experience. Years ago, we had a not-so-great experience with a "family" photographer which had us a little nervous about trying again, but the time with Larry was night-and-day different, SO much better. What's more, the actual results were astonishing in how much better they are. We cannot recommend Spencer Photography enough. If you get a chance to work with Larry yourself, you'll see.

I highly recommend Spencer Photography. I’m a teacher and I get many graduation announcements every year. Larry’s photography was noticeably different and stood out from the pack for originality and quality. Larry did my son’s senior pictures and he was wonderful! He spent several hours with us downtown and went above and beyond to get interesting shots that showed the personality and creativity of both the photographer and subject. He worked quickly to get proofs online and we received exceptionally high quality prints within a couple days of our order.

"The photos were spectacular"

"His work was extraordinary"

“Larry did both of my daughters weddings within 18 months. His work was extraordinary for both events! He made each event different and unique. The memories that were captured on each of these special days will be with us forever. He just doesn’t capture the day, he captures the emotion of the day. Most of my friends are awed by any photo I show them.”

Jan Gray
