Wedding and Event Photography
Vivian was a delight to work with. She was very responsive, punctual, and had many amazing ideas for the wedding. She did a great job of capturing the magic, emotion, and joy of the day. She blended in seamlessly with the guests to capture the events, emotions, and special moments of the day without interrupting or making anyone feel like they had to pose or ham it up. She really made our day special and gave us so many wonderful photos that we will treasure for a lifetime.Oct 19, 2019VerifiedVivian Maxine Photography's reply
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It was an absolute pleasure to photograph your wedding day, and it makes me beyond happy to know that the photographs your received are ones you will be able to forever treasure. My goal is always to make the photography experience for clients' wedding days as seamless and smooth as I can, and I am so glad I was able to provide that experience for you both!
Vivian took pictures of my surprise proposal to my girlfriend and was absolutely fantastic. She went to the site of the project beforehand and took time to talk through everything with me beforehand. Her photos were everything I was hoping for, and she delivered them quickly afterward. I'd highly recommend Vivian for any event.Feb 3, 2020VerifiedVivian Maxine Photography's reply
Noah, thank you so much for all of the wonderful feedback! I loved planning the surprise proposal for you and your now-fiancée at the waterfront; it really was an absolute joy for me to be able to capture such a memorable surprise for you two that you'll always have not only in your memories but also through images. Congratulations again, and best wishes for your future marriage!
Vivian is freaking incredible and so so talented!! I found her last minute and am so so thankful I did. Vivian did my fiance and my pre wedding ceremony shoot at the Supreme Court because we wanted to have iconic memories of our time in the DC area. Let me just say that we and both of our families were BLOWN AWAY by her amazing talent and how our photos turned out. We only had time for a 30 minute shoot but she was able to capture amazing angles and also take solo photos of both of us. The lighting, the angles, the editing - everything was perfect. I've been recommending her to everyone I know that might be looking for a photographer.Dec 23, 2019VerifiedVivian Maxine Photography's reply
Zehra, I am SO delighted that you and your fiancé (now husband) as well as your families loved your pre-wedding ceremony photos! I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to help capture these iconic memories for you here in D.C. on such an important day for you two. Congratulations again, and all the best with your future together as husband and wife. <3

Gini, thank you so much for your kind words! Your one-year-old was so adorable, and your family was a pleasure to work with. I am so glad you had a great experience and are happy with your photos!
Vivian, did an amazing job with our engagement photos. She was friendly and made my fiancé and I feel comfortable during the photo shoot. She was very quick to get us our pictures back and we absolutely love them. I would definitely recommend Vivian for your photography needs.Dec 31, 2019VerifiedVivian Maxine Photography's reply
Ariana, I am so happy you and Oscar felt comfortable during your engagement shoot and that you love your photos! You two were so patient and amazing to work with despite the weather being very stubborn that day. I can't wait to celebrate and capture the special moments of your big day this year! Happy 2020!

Throughout the process, I get a feel for whether they have specific ideas in mind, or if they would like me to provide my own insights. My goal is always to make sure clients feel comfortable throughout the entire process and are able to share their ideas freely with me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always taking part in a number of trainings, conferences, workshops, and mentoring opportunities in order to grow my skills as a photographer. There is always more to learn, and I am always seeking ways to grow so I can better serve my clients.
