Thanks for finding your way to my little space on the internet! I’m an Indianapolis-based photographer specializing in inclusive wedding photography for fun & open-minded couples. I believe everyone deserves love & the right to marry, and I love working with people who feel the same way. Let’s be friends and create something great together!

I'm Max.

Hello Friends!

I believe that all love deserves to be celebrated.

Colorful wedding photography that documents your wedding day love story. For the lovers that want to feel the same emotion and connection they felt on their wedding day when looking back at their photos for years to come.

The Wedding Experience

Planning a wedding can be pretty overwhelming. My goal is to make your photography experience as fun and stress free as possible. I’ll be there along the way to help you plan the timeline of your day so that you get the most out of your wedding photography collection. You can learn more about my wedding experience from beginning to end here!

Lets get to the good stuff

Max’s studio is the cutest hideaway with the best lighting for all pics. He set up personal stations for my boyfriend and I and made us feel so comfortable throughout the session. He helped us pose and look super cute for all of our shots! Max goes above and beyond for his clients and we can’t wait to work with him again!

Jase & Brandon

Max was so wonderful on our wedding day. The wedding coordinator said he was the best photographer she had worked with. He was relaxed and kept us on time the whole day. Max was able to help us keep laughing through the nerves to get some wonderful pictures. I would highly recommend!

Robin & Cody

Max took the time to meet with us ahead of time to put together a game plan for our engagement photos and learn more about us as a couple which put us at ease for the day of the photoshoot. He was great with finding cool photo spots throughout the city and catching great lighting to make for wonderful photographs. He was quick to edit the pictures and send our way and we were impressed with the high quality and professional look. Best of all he is LGBTQ+ friendly! We will definitely be booking with Max again soon!

Lauren & Lauren

I would highly recommend Max to anyone looking for a photographer. He was so wonderful to work with. He was flexible with our photo schedule and got all of the shots we mentioned to him that we wanted. He captured our day perfectly and I'm finding it hard to choose which photos I want to get printed out because all of them are just so good. One thing I really love about our wedding photos is that they aren't heavily edited. They represent how the day actually was and I really appreciate that!

Victoria & Johnathan

Max did an amazing job photographing our wedding. Our photos turned out amazing! Max does a great job keeping you relaxed and is full of awesome ideas. He did a great job of keeping things on schedule and very easy to get along with. I would recommend Max to everyone!

Kaitlynn & Brendan

Kayla and I loved our photo session with Max! He helped this reserved couple feel comfortable taking our engagement photos in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Indianapolis. The session was fun and the pictures were beautiful! He really captured "us."
