Experience & Expertise.

The Synthesis of Emotion, Art & Creativity

I have been a full time photographer for the last 24 years. Located in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, Ohio, photography is not only my full time career but it’s my passion.  I began my career 24 years ago working as a back up for a wedding photographer in Akron, Ohio. I started out using a medium format Hasselblad 501CM film camera so getting it right in camera was imperitive. Over 400 weddings later, I still have a passion for photographing couples on their wedding day. For me, weddings have it all: portrait photography; photojournalism; commercial photography (wedding details). It is all interesting and all part of your day. Let me capture the beauty and love of your day so you can be proud for a lifetime and beyond. 

Other than my sons, Elliot and Simon, there is nothing more important to me than making my clients look their absolute best. Whether in their wedding pictures, senior pictures or their family portraits my goal is continuously refine my craft and grow as a photographic artist so that I can provide you with the absolute best pictures possible.

A Recognized Wedding Industry Leader

A low volume, full service photography company for the more discerning clientele, I have specialized in candid, fine art weddings for over 24 years. Participating in national and international professional photography organizations and recognized as a Master Wedding Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America, you will be in good hands with me.

 While documenting over 400 weddings, it has been my goal to photograph and document my clients with authenticity and artistic aptitude. It’s really about taking pictures of two people in love. Can my photos make you “feel” a moment just by looking at it, while also being as artistic as is possible. 

In this modern age, it would be easy to rely on technology and forget about what is truly important on your wedding day. Less about overly posed, overly photoshopped pictures and more about the story of your day. Real moments that happen on your wedding day are what matter and these will be the pictures that, I believe, you will love the most. Every moment on your wedding day is extraordinary. Your wedding pictures should be, as well. 

Get In Touch

I’m excited to hear from you! Your interest in Spencer Photography is greatly appreciated. I document a very limited number of weddings per year so that my clients can have an exceptional experience.  Once you submit the contact form, I can let you know if I have your date available. 

Being able to discuss your wedding in detail, and ensuring that we are a good fit for each other is essential. So, the next step in the process is to arrange a time so speak on the phone with each other so that we can get to know each other better.
