Max was great to work with! He understood my photoshoot vision and provided everything I was hoping for. He helped find our location, he guided me through a variety of poses, and delivered images beyond my expectations. I'm now able to build out my social media profiles with current high quality photos. I recommend Max to any type of lifestyle or portrait photography .

Even as a true last minute session, Max was able to capture INCREDIBLE impromptu engagement photos. He was friendly, easy to shoot with, and overall, very relatable and professional. He had suggestions of the area since we were just visiting and turned the project around in VERY quick time. My fiancé and I honestly went in expecting something basic, but what Max delivered far exceeded ANY expectations we could have had. We both highly recommend Max for any photography project you may have. We certainly were not disappointed!

Max was absolutely awesome! We wanted some fun family photos that weren’t stuffy or staged. He scouted a location and made my fiancé and young son feel extremely comfortable and at ease during the shoot. His communication leading up to and past the work was professional and punctual. We are obsessed with the results he provided and would highly recommend Max for any of your photography needs

I’ve used Max for multiple photoshoots, events and photo editing. He’s a extremely talented photographer that consistently captures what his client asks for. Max will always be my go to photographer; and he should be yours too!

Max was a breeze to work with. He offered a unique eye and refreshing, alternative direction for my headshots. I look forward to working with him again.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My starting rate for any portrait, event, or commercial photography is $250. Larger projects vary in price depending on the scope of the work. Depending on the circumstances I can offer discounts on a case by case basis.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always want to get to know my customers some before booking a shoot. I'm mostly curious to know about what inspires them and what they hope to gain from working with me. For weddings and engagements, it's nice to know about how the couple met, what they love about each other, and how they spend their time together. More than anything, I just want to make sure that my clients feel comfortable and safe to be themselves around me. Most of my work involves photographing people, and I believe that I'm able to produce the best images when my subjects are at ease.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self-taught photographer with 10 years of experience shooting everything from weddings and events to still-life product photography.
