The Process

Lets Meet Up

01

When you're ready to inquire about your wedding date, fill out my contact form so we can set up a time to chat! Whether that's through video chat or at my studio, we'll meet and get to know each other. I’ll be spending the majority of the most important day of your life with you, so it's important to me to make sure we’re the perfect fit!

Save Your Date

02

After meeting, I'll send you a wedding packet with everything you need to know about your wedding experience with me. Once you make your reservation fee payment and sign your contract, we're official!

Engagement Session

03

Engagement sessions are my favorite part of the whole experience. This is the time that I really get to know you both and learn your story. It's our first time actually working together, so this is where we find our groove. By your wedding day, you will already be a pro and we will have already spent an evening together getting to know each other.

Final Meet Up

04

I'm available throughout the entire planning process if you have any questions about scheduling, vendors, or anything else! We will agree on a timeline a month beforehand so we can make sure we have enough time to capture your day in the best way possible. A week out from your wedding day, we can chat to go over the schedule one final time and tie up any loose ends.

Your Wedding Day

05

My goal on your wedding day is to document it exactly how it happens. I'm not a traditional posey photographer. I look to capture real moments that make you feel the same emotion when looking back on them 20 years later. I'm also there to help you with whatever you might need to make sure your wedding day is stress-free.

My Style

Hover over each photo

I’m a graphic designer by trade, so I often apply basic design principles when shooting. I make an effort to have clean backgrounds, removing all distractions if at all possible, making sure lines are straight or leading the eye to a particular place. 

I love color, if you couldn’t tell already. When looking for locations, I try to find surroundings that have a pop of color, whether that be a colorful mural or even a field of flowers. I love when couples incorporate color into their wardrobe choices to help create pops of color into their images. 

Your photos will be vibrant and true to life. This means the colors will appear the way they actually look. Suits, dresses, florals, and even the tree leaves will all be the correct color. This will make your photos timeless and not date them by adding a trendy editing style that you may not like in 10 years.

I have a mental shot list of basic details that’s pretty much the same for every wedding I shoot. What’s not the same though is YOU! Every couple is different and celebrates their love differently. For that reason, I try to be a fly on the wall for most of the day. This allows me to capture genuine moments from the day, some that you might have even missed.

Your experience will be fun! Yes, we’ll get some classic smile at the camera poses, but I strive to capture photos that have an emotional connection. I do this by guiding you with some lifestyle poses and prompts. Whether that’s laughing at each other or nuzzling each other’s foreheads together, it will be natural and look amazing!

If time and weather allow, I always take my couples out at sunset to take a few couple photos. Most of my sessions take place during golden hour, which is about 2 hours before sunset, so my style tends to lean on the warmer side.

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 & Johnathon

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.'
