Rachel + Shane

Maxim and his team are just awesome. We are very very very happy with our wedding pictures. And we have tons of them! Working with Maxim is great – he always has plenty of suggestions and a vision for each image. So no worries at all – just trust him because he knows what he is doing. Maxim is very attentive to what’s going on around and catches just the right moments. Again, it was easy to work with the whole team. They are all really positive people and are there to help with anything. So glad we randomly stopped by a wedding show and met Maxim. He also speaks Russian, which was quite helpful in our Russian wedding.

Jana + Anatoly

Words cannot express how happy I was with Max and his photo studio. Max was willing to come to our home to do our engagement session which turned out perfect! And looking at our wedding pictures is like reliving every moment!! Max was super quick to get our photos to us after both the engagement session and the wedding.. the albums he offered (engagement/guestbook and photobooth) are so wonderfully made I have them both showcased in my home. Max and his assistants were so professional and wonderful throughout our entire wedding and were able to get some shots prior to the wedding without my husband and I having to see each other (which is exactly what we wanted). I would 100% most definitely recommend Max to everyone wanting FABULOUS wedding photos at a great price!

Megan + Giles

Max was fantastic! I hate having my picture taken and he truly put me at ease, so much so that I forgot that I was having my picture taken and just relaxed and had fun! Our pictures are gorgeous and were shown at the reception which was a nice touch, and within a week we had our pictures. If you’re looking for an amazing pictures and a great photographer then Maxim Photo Studio is the right choice!

Courtney + Chris

It was a pleasure to have Max as our photographer for our wedding in Cincinnati, OH.

He was very professional, punctual and flexible with his time in coordinating with our busy schedule. He was a tremendous help in positioning us and our guest for the perfect shot. Max, did a great job at responding to our needs and preferences and getting the pictures back to us in a reasonable time. We even got to see some of our photos in display during the wedding reception!!! and just a few days later we got a sneak peak of our wedding pictures, posted directly to our Facebook page.

We loved the work he did for us in our wedding (custom) album, he did a good job editing the photos. Max also worked with us to make additional changes to a few photos for the album. We were thankful for his willingness to put in additional work to alter the photos per our preferences.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture every moment of your special day, stay on schedule, be professional and polite, use creative poses and fantastic editing = look no further. My husband and family could not be happier with how Max and Angela photographed our special day! They took shots from unique angles and were still able to capture each moment of the day–from my face when I messed up my lines, to walking down the aisle, THE kiss, the dances, to the cake!! We seriously could not be happier. Max was extremely professional, efficient, and a lot of fun. We met at his office before the wedding and he had a thorough packet of questions for my husband and I to fill out–with questions we did not even think of (to make sure all of our expectations were exceeded). Max goes above and beyond to make sure he understands what is important to the bride and family. I chose Max because of all the awards and positive reviews. If you book Max, you can rest assured that he will meet and exceed everything you could ever imagine for a wedding photographer.

Jessica + Cory

Max and Angela are the best! I had my engagement and wedding photos done by Maxim Photo studios. The quality of the photos are outstanding. Max is willing to go where you want and listens to the kind of photos you want. Angela had the same kind personality as me and I loved the shots she took of the girls getting ready, paying attention to every little detail that I worked so hard planning. The shots Max took at the wedding are gorgeous and there are so many favorites to chose from. Before the wedding, we had a planning meeting so Max knew which shots I really wanted and ones I did not want. He was able to get almost every shot I had listed and I am so happy with the way they turned out. The photo booth was a hit at the wedding and we still enjoy looking through the custom book made with all photo booth photos.

Lauren + Ben

Maxim Photo Studio is owned/operated by Max himself. He is the most outgoing, energetic photographer that I have ever met. He is very personable and has tremendous talent. When I look at the pictures, the feelings were truly captured through his lens. I would recommend him in a heartbeat!! Thanks Max!!

Julie + Chris

I highly recommend Max Surikov and his team at Maxim Photo Studio. He was professional, kind, organized and efficient. His artistic eye is unparalleled in the Cincinnati/Dayton area, in both the pictures he chose to take, and the layout in which he formatted our final photographs. Out of a dozen photographers at a Cincinnati Bridal Show, I was immediately drawn to Maxim Photo Studio’s unique and artistic display. The team did not disappoint from that initial attraction to their work. Maxim photography made both our wedding party and families at ease. They captured candid moments that defined our character and the personalities of everyone we love. We were able to view our pictures within two weeks of the wedding date, and received our final product within 6 weeks. Maxim Photo Studio also went above and beyond and prepared a beautiful montage of pictures set to music that we were able to share with everyone on a public website. My new husband and I could not have chosen a better photographer to capture our wedding day, and we are both incredibly pleased and thankful that Max Surikov and his team shared their talent with us.
