Wedding Photography Pricing
Wedding Investment & Our Pricing Philosophy
"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten"
- Benjamin Franklin
Your wedding day is about love. It’s about family. It’s about friends. Your wedding day is about real moments. It’s about everything near and dear to your heart. More than “posed” pictures, it’s about your love story. We will be there to document every tear, every laugh and every hug for you. All day wedding coverage that we will provide means that you will never miss a moment in pictures because of hourly limitations.
Most wedding photographers offer hourly “packages”. This enables them to offer their service to a wider array of clientele. We will do this for select clientele on a limited basis. But, we have a completely different philosophy for those looking for a high end experience. We believe that your wedding day is just that. An entire day. If you are considering a photographer that offers hourly packages, you need to ask yourself this question, what part of your wedding day is NOT worth documenting?
Wedding photography is a necessity. However, great wedding photography is a choice. Having photographed over 300 weddings, you can be assured that you will have one of the most experienced and most trusted photographers in Cleveland.

While considering what you will pay for your wedding photography, these are a few things to consider when hiring us…You will never have to wait for your wedding proofs. They will be ready approximately one week after your wedding day. You will never have to wait for us to return your e-mail or phone call. We will respond promptly and never longer than within 24 hours. We don’t have a team of photographers to offer you based on what you are willing to spend. When you retain Spencer Photography to document your wedding day you will always have Larry Spencer and his assistant.

We will do a photo session in your wedding dress on the day of your hair and make-up trial. These will be included with your wedding pictures. This is a great way to get the creative “posed” pictures taken care of and open up your timeline on your wedding day.

A pre-ceremony photo session, or engagement session, is always included in our service. An engagement session allows me to get to know you better. It also prepares you for pictures on your wedding day. You will have the best pictures that you’ve ever had of yourself and you will be ready for your wedding day photos.
I always do basic retouching on all of your photographs. Although I strive to get your pictures technically correct in camera and never rely on Photoshop, I am able to tweak them while going thru the proofing process. The pictures that you choose to have printed and the images that go into your wedding album are always “finished” or perfected as close as possible. Blemishes, exit signs and other basic distractions are handled then. All of this is always included in our basic service. Additional fees may apply for complex retouching.
We hold our clients privacy at the highest priority. Part of our wedding agreement allows you to decide whether you want your images publicly displayed or not. If you choose, none of your pictures will be publicly displayed and we will not disclose names or any information related to your event. There is never an additional charge for this.
You have the option to include digital files in all of our collections. Digital files are always delivered after your wedding album design is completed since those files will be fully finished and retouched. Additional fees may apply for file exclusivity.
When researching your photography budget, keep this in mind. You should not have to worry about scheduling your day around your photographer. With us, you can let your day unfold, let real moments happen and we will be there to document every one of them for you. Your wedding day deserves the best wedding pictures. What you pay for your photography should reflect that.
