What Our Clients Say

Max was an absolute joy to work with and completely exceeded our expectations. He traveled to Chicago for our engagement photos and went above and beyond, driving us around the city and getting shots at multiple locations. He produced great content and variety, and it was wonderful to get to know him – and his style – prior to our wedding day. Max does a great job of making you feel relaxed in order to get the shots that fit the mood and setting. He’s also extremely adept at using light, angles and vantage points to get creative and artistic shots that incorporate nature and the elements. You’ll get plenty of traditional shots with traditional poses, but you’ll get just as many unique ones that have the “wow” factor. As for our actual wedding in Cincinnati, Max kept everyone loose and on schedule. We took hundreds of photos before the ceremony – with dozens of combinations of immediate family, extended family, and the wedding party. It was a whirlwind, but Max got all of the shots we wanted and made everyone feel comfortable in the process. I know because people told me that. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception photos were great as well: the perfect mix of formal and candid. Max definitely comes prepared. He’s seen it all and does anything and everything he can to ensure that the day goes off without a hitch. All in all, we couldn’t have been happier with the finished product and recommend Max enthusiastically and without hesitation.

Our photographer Max is a true artist and gives professional first class service all the way-even our guests mentioned to us what a lovely experience they had with him during portraits. I highly recommend!

Max did an amazing job! We hired him to do photography for our wedding on 8-19-23. He was very professional and very helpful throughout the entire day! He got us our pictures back so quick too, within several days! The pictures turned out amazing and something that my husband and I will cherish forever! We also had a wedding album included in our package and that turned out wonderful as well! Thank you so much again Max!

Top notch. Max was great, very patient, made everyone feel comfortable and organized. The photos were ready two weeks after the wedding and not one bad photo. Max even did a complementary outdoor session due to the rain on the wedding day.

Stop the hunt for your perfect wedding photographer! Max is your guy!!! He works with upmost professionalism and delivered us such beautiful wedding shots. It was difficult to narrow down our photos for our album there were so many to choose from. He put in ample time, his assistant was incredible too, and we also loved our engagement shoot. Truly cannot say enough good things. His pricing is fully transparent and he’s well worth the value. Our best vendor for the big day

Max was wonderful to work with and produced the most beautiful photos! He really did a wonderful job catching the fall lighting and capturing everyone's best angles and expressions. I will treasure my wedding photos forever!

Stop your search right here because there is no one who can hold a candle to Max when it comes to photography. He is the epitome of a true professional: calm, kind, collaborative, thorough and imaginative with an incredible eye for a great photo. Max goes above and beyond for his couples. His passion and expertise show in his outstanding, unforgettable work!

If I could give Max more than 5 stars I would! He shot our wedding in Columbus Ohio and did a fabulous job. Our pictures were absolutely beautiful and were available before we got back from our honeymoon. Max was very professional to work with and went above and beyond, even visiting a few local parks prior to our wedding to make sure we had good lighting. I would recommend Maxim Photo Studio for anyone planning their wedding, you are in great hands!

If you want high quality, professional and attention to detail photos look no further! Max is amazing. I have had the pleasure of working with him as a fellow vendor and loved his interactions with couples and the quality of his photos. We had the chance to hire Max to take our engagement and wedding photos, he was great at helping us loosen up and enjoy the process. He knew what to say to make us laugh and feel comfortable. We just LOVE all of our photos and look forward to receiving our album. This is a service you truly want an experienced vendor for so you don't miss a moment. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!

Max goes over and above in every way as a photographer. He is a lighting Guru, no seriously, just browse through some of his recent sessions and he will knock your socks off. From taking breathtaking photos, to helping set out the seating chart. We were blown away with every aspect of working with Max, I cannot recommend him enough.

Max is all around awesome! He took our engagement and wedding pictures in 2018. He had great ideas and helped me feel comfortable during the shoot. He is prompt and so easy to communicate with. He can really command a crowd and keep people on time; we had big bridal party and big family pictures. He made sure to have a list of all the pictures that were my must haves. I also cannot believe how fast his turn around is with pictures. He is so professional and an amazingly creative photographer. Max deserves every bit of this 5 star review.

Max was fantastic! Would highly recommend him and his team. He was super helpful in finding locations to take photos, very patient with me throughout the day (kept me calm!), and our pictures turned out amazing! He was very responsive throughout the contract process as well.

Max was so easy to work with and completely professional. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out beautiful and came back so quickly! Cannot say enough good things about Maxim Photography. Would use recommend to anyone!

Twice as nice! Max is the best photographer I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing! His artistic, storytelling shots leave a legacy for your family to cherish for generations. I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying Max’s talents for both of my weddings! After my first husband passed, and I was blessed with a new love, having Max’s exquisite photos was the only thing I wanted to repeat for my second wedding. I knew no other photographer could compare. And Max didn’t disappoint. Our engagement and wedding photos are magazine perfect; they grace the walls of our home and fill me with joy and peace each time I look at them. I can’t imagine sharing my wedding day with any other photographer than Max!

Max is a wonderful photographer! He did everything we wanted and more! Our family and friends commented on how professional he was. He was friendly and easy to work with. He even helped my husband tie his tie! We would recommend him to any couple.​

We found Max through the recommendation of a friend and we could not be happier! Max was the perfect wedding photographer for our big day. He gave the perfect amount of direction to keep the photos organized and get the best shots. He listened to our wants and then went above and beyond on execution. We got countless compliments throughout the night how great he was and now even more compliments that we have the pictures back. If you're getting married, make sure you have Max there to document it!

Max was absolutely amazing from the first phone call consultation. When we talked to him about what we wanted for our wedding and engagement pictures, he was great with hearing our wishes and coming. During engagement pictures, Max helped us feel comfortable even though neither one of us usually likes photos. We got them back within a month, and we were in love! On our wedding day, Max was amazing at getting all of the getting ready photos without interrupting anyone. We discussed where to do our first look, and I'm so glad I trusted where he chose; they were amazing! Throughout the entire wedding, Max wasn't only an amazing photographer, but he was great at doing other small tasks to make sure things went off without a hitch (fluffing my train, fixing the aisle runner, etc.). He went above and beyond! We got out wedding photos back in just over a week, and only by looking at the cover photo, I knew I was in love with them. They're the perfect combination of classic with some amazing unique artistic aspects scattered throughout. If I had to chose only one vendor to use again, without a question, it would be Max!

My husband and I hired Max to take our wedding photos and I can't say enough good things about him and his work! He was wonderful to work with. He was very personable and engaging both with my husband and I as well as our guests. Many of our guests even commented on how much they liked him. He didn't miss a moment and we felt reassured he would capture all aspects of our wedding day. We received our final pictures within two weeks which is what he promised, and they are beautiful! We could tell he was putting extra effort to make sure the sunset shots were just right, and they did not disappoint. He also made black and white copies of every picture. The only problem we have now is trying to decide which pictures we want to frame in our home because there are so many beautiful options to choose from. We have decided anytime we want professional photos taken, Max is our pick! We highly recommend Max as your photographer!

Max did an outstanding job at our wedding! He was so fun & interactive when he took our photos for our special day. Also, was a SUPERSTAR, he ran the show & helped us put tremendously. Max did an AMAZING job & we cannot be more pleased with his photographs that he took. I would highly recommend him & you will not regret it!! Very fun personality & made some memories that we will cherish forever!

My husband and I lucked out with all of our wedding vendors, but Max was truly exceptional. From the beginning and throughout our relationship he was extremely prompt with correspondence and portrayed nothing but professionalism and organization. As I am not very photogenic I didn't have super high expectations for pictures and was just hoping to get a few good shots of my husband and myself and our families..but wow was I surprised when I got hundreds of pictures (the morning after the wedding!!) so many of which I absolutely loved. Throughout the day Max was working constantly to get great shots and it showed. To top it all off, he even stayed later than what we had hired him for so that he could capture some photos of the toasts (which is always my favorite part of any wedding and ended up being some of my favorite pictures overall). I feel so lucky to have had him as our photographer and would recommend him again and again.

I can not express enough how amazing Max is. Our wedding had to be postponed due to covid, and Max made sure to accommodate all of our needs. He was always prompt with responding to all of my emails. During our engagement session he made sure to make us feel comfortable, but also get to know us and how we interacted with each other for the wedding day. On our wedding day if there was a picture to be taken him and his partner Ed got it. So many of our guests have complimented their work and talked about how they were constantly snapping pictures. We received our pictures quickly and beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe them. They are truly amazing. I would recommend Max 100 times over. I can never thank him enough for the pictures that he provided to us to remember our perfect day.

Max was absolutely amazing! We couldn’t have asked for a more creative photographer to capture our special day. Max is incredibly talented as well as punctual. He is timely with emails and calls, and is so open and easy going. My guests even noticed how professional he was during the ceremony and how upbeat he was at the reception. Our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. I would recommend Max and his team over and over again!

Max is amazing! A true professional who worked with us in every step of the process from our engagement session to our wedding. We love the pictures and the custom guest signature book! Go with Max and Maxim Photo Studio for your engagement and wedding photos, you will be glad you did!!
