We just had our wedding at the end of July so this review is WAY overdue! (sorry Max...) After searching for and meeting with several photographers, my husband and I chose Maxim Photo Studio based on his personality alone. He was very professional, friendly, & once you got to know him, a very fun & creative photographer! One important thing for us was that whenever we needed to reach him for a question or concern, he was prompt in either answering or getting back to us very quickly. Living in Florida & having our wedding in Indiana, that was crucial for us. We decided to splurge a little with our photographer because once the wedding is over, all that is left are the photos! A lot of other photographers I met were cocky. Max didn't come off that way; he was more confident that his work was great instead. When we had our engagement session, he explained that he likes to get to know what we're comfortable with, & how we interact with each other so he'll have a better understanding come the day of the wedding, which is pretty brilliant. On our wedding day, he already knew how we acted with each other & with him. We didn't have to worry about becoming comfortable with him all over again; instead we focused on taking our pictures! As far as his pictures go, I was specific that I wanted crisp, clean, & bright looks to all of the photographs. He hit the nail on the head with that style! If there was a photograph that we forgot to list & we wanted it, he made it happen! They were great at getting the shots that we wanted, and thinking of some great ideas that we didn't think of! All in all, I as a bride, never had to worry about my photographer messing up or not being organized. He had everything taken care of! He did an amazing job at taking care of us! I would DEFINITELY recommend Max to anyone who doesn't mind slightly splurging for a GREAT PRODUCT & GREAT RELATIONSHIP! Thanks Max & Angela!!!

Max was wonderful. He was very flexible and prompt in responding to texts and emails. I felt that his time with my husband and I was personalized. He is very thorough in making sure he gets the shots you want. His professionalism is excellent as his assistant photographer Angela's. The turn around on photos is like none other I've heard of. He puts up sneak peeks of your event within 24 hours and has a USB drive with all of your photos ready within a couple of weeks after the wedding.

We had Maxim photo studios shoot both our engagement and wedding day pictures. Our engagement session was in Ault Park during the cherry blossoms which were absolutely gorgeous. At the time we both we horrible at posing for pictures and super awkward in front of the camera. Max and Angela made it really easy for us. They told us what to do to make us look good and all we had to do was kiss, smile and listen! The engagement session really helped us feel more confident and comfortable for our wedding day pictures. I'd highly recommend doing engagement photos for that reason. It also helps you know what you want. Then, on our wedding day we had such a great time during our photos. We took all of them before the ceremony, which I highly recommend! All of our photos came back perfect! We absolutely loved them and felt like there wasn't a bad photo! The flash photography looks amazing and Angela and Max were so good at directing us and the 15 people in our massive bridal party! Thank you, Max and your team! We are so grateful we have beautiful pictures that captures our perfect day!

I cannot say enough great things about Max and his team. Besides amazing photos Max was excellent at communication. Max responded to my calls or e-mail almost instantly. I was always confident that he would answer my questions and satisfy what my husband and I wanted as far as location and specific photo poses. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Max and look forward working with him in the future.

When I walked into Max's office, I knew I wanted him to be a part of my special day! His warm welcome and smile made me feel confident that I was at the right place. After showing me his work, I knew I had to have him for my photo booth. But he also showed me his slow motion video! I fell in love with his work and could not wait to see him on my wedding day. When the time came, Max was totally professional about his work, and he wanted my day to be perfect! He captured so many memories and it was great to see so many people step out of their comfort zone and have a little fun with Max's fun props and suggestive poses! I would recommend Max 100% and I intend on using him for future events!

Choosing a photographer was one of the hardest decisions for my wedding because there are so many options and I don't know enough about photography to tell a genius from a fraud. Every photographer seemed to show me good pictures when I interviewed them. My final decision came down to the vibe I got from the photographer and mostly these reviews...

I AM SO HAPPY I DECIDED TO GO WITH MAXIM PHOTO! Our wedding pictures turned out way better than I expected and Max and his team were amazing. From the planning to the wedding day, everything went smoothly and Max was very responsive. People are still commenting on how amazing Max and his team were and how they got so many great shots, yet were barely visible during the ceremony and reception. Max and Angela made sure they got every picture we had asked for and also used their creativeness to come up with pictures I would have never thought of. Max did a great job organizing our wedding party of 21+. Everything was orderly, organized and efficient. Max also offers a USB drive with copyright release rights (ready only 2 weeks after your wedding), so I can print anyone of my 1800 pictures anytime I want! Any photographer can made one great album to show people, but Max is a true professional.

Thanks Max, Angela & Team! We will forever cherish our wedding pictures.

Max and his team were a pleasure to work with. They brought great ideas, allowing them to capture natural and beautiful shots. My goal was to find a photographer that was less posey and more unique. Max exceeded my expectations! His pricing was consistent with other photographers I researched. Max was very willing to customize packages to meet my needs and budget. He was worth every penny! I had a hard time selecting my favorites at the end because I had so many amazing shots. The live photo booth was a huge hit with all the guests and a lot of fun. Can't say enough positive things about Maxim Photo Studio.

Where do I even begin? Max and his team were absolutely phenomenal to work with!! From the minute we walked into his studio for our intial meeting until our most recent final meeting to get all of our wedding and engagement photos, Max has been nothing but professional, friendly, courteous, fun, and accommodating. Not to mention his photography skills are amazing! Him and his team took some incredible shots of our wedding day and it's safe to say that we are having a rough time picking just a few dozen of our favorites because their photographs of our day are ALL stunning, they really have an eye for beautiful shots and are helpful throughout the entire day to make it as seamless and comfotable as possible.

Max and his team worked so hard for our photo booth too, there was a line ALL night for it with all the props they supplied and the fun people had with it is priceless. We also were lucky enough to participate in his newest addition to his portfolio, the slow motion video booth. Talk about hilarious and fun!! It was the hit of the party and Max and his team were flawless in their execution of this!

Overall, bottom line, Max and his team go above and beyond to make your day amazing and special. They really are truly there to help you remember everything about your day and accommodate any requests you might have on special pictures, etc. My husband and I have already recommended Maxim Photo Studio to several of our friends and family who are getting married next year - we are forever grateful for the memories Max has supplied us with.

Thank you, Max!! You're the best!

Guests cannot stop talking about how awesome Maxim Photo Studio was at the wedding. They are not just any photo "booth". You can get large group pics using lots of props, and they print on the spot. They are professional, nice, and were the hit of the wedding.
Also, we had already contracted with a wedding photographer, but they caught a few shots of our bridesmaids peaking around the corner and the send off in a carriage when the photographer wasn't around. Those few photos are amazing and some of our favorite shots! I will definitely contract with them not only for the photo booth, but for professional photography as well. Friendly with the guests and outstanding work! I am picky and researched a lot of companies in a 90 mile radius of Cincinnati. Save yourself the time and trust me!

I cannot say enough good things about Maxim Photo Studio. From the day we met Max, he was extremely easy to work with, and quickly responded to all of my questions. During our engagement session, Max quickly put us at ease. Instead of making the day feel awkward, we actually ended up having a lot of fun. On our wedding day, Max was professional, organized, and actually listened to what I wanted. Our quests and family are still raving about him and how amazing his team was at the wedding. They loved the wedding slideshow, and the live photo booth was a huge hit! I would highly recommend adding the photo booth to your package! As for Angela, she was fantastic as well. She captured all of the details that I had worked so hard planning, just as she promised she would. After showing Max some photo ideas I liked on Pinterest, she went above and beyond and actually made the props needed to replicate those photos. Maxim Photo Studios was the first vendor we hired, and they were by far the best decision we made. Our images are amazing and I have no idea how I am going to choose only 50 for our album! Everyone who has seen the images is amazed by the quality, creativity, and beauty of our pictures. And, we had them in our hands less than three weeks after our wedding! Trust me on this...choose Maxim Photo Studio for your wedding photography. You will not be disappointed.

The most profound advice we received when starting our wedding planning was, "don't skimp on a photographer. You'll appreciate every penny you spend to capture moments from the most special day of your lives.” It only took one meeting with Max to know that we had to have Maxim Photo Studio as our photographers. If the beauty and quality of his past work isn’t enough to sell you, his personality surely will! From the moment we met Max, it was clear that he would move mountains to capture the beauty of our wedding and engagement. He works in such a patient, friendly, and down-to-earth manner that makes taking professional pictures seem natural and fun. Our engagement session was one of the best parts of the wedding process. Max and his team were able to capture so many different moods and styles within a few city blocks. This brings us to the big day! During one of the most stressful days of your life, knowing you have Max as your photographer will give you one less thing to worry about! There when you need him, a ghost when you don’t, Max’s experience shines on the wedding day, as he knows how to capture the little details you will appreciate later.

The most profound advice we received when starting our wedding planning was, "don't skimp on a photographer. You'll appreciate every penny you spend to capture moments from the most special day of your lives.” It only took one meeting with Max to know that we had to have Maxim Photo Studio as our photographers. If the beauty and quality of his past work isn’t enough to sell you, his personality surely will! From the moment we met Max, it was clear that he would move mountains to capture the beauty of our wedding and engagement. He works in such a patient, friendly, and down-to-earth manner that makes taking professional pictures seem natural and fun. Our engagement session was one of the best parts of the wedding process. Max and his team were able to capture so many different moods and styles within a few city blocks. This brings us to the big day! During one of the most stressful days of your life, knowing you have Max as your photographer will give you one less thing to worry about! There when you need him, a ghost when you don’t, Max’s experience shines on the wedding day, as he knows how to capture the little details you will appreciate later. His respect for the bride and groom is phenomenal. Not overbearing but eager to please.

We found Maxim Photo studio through a referral after exploring several different recommended options from our venue. From value to quality and execution, Max and Angela at Maxim Photo Studio went above and beyond to make our special day memorable for us and we knew from the moment we met with them it was going to be the right choice. Professional, engaged and personally tailored the work truly spoke for itself. We also used the Live Photo Booth as our option and it went down as a HUGE hit at our wedding and provided some fun memories to end our evening. Max took great strides to assure our engagement, wedding and aftershoots were unique and equally valued experiences for us. Our biggest compliment to date after our wedding is the extremely wonderful comments we receive about our photos. Go with Max, no one does it better! - Heather and John

Whether it was helping us figure out timelines, locations or answering the hundreds of questions we had! He was always polite & professional. Max & his team were fantastic during the engagement session & the wedding day. Everything was perfect! ALL of my guests at the wedding loved his attitude, the photo booth & that he gave everyone a "sneak peak" of our pictures during dinner. It's been 4 months since our wedding & our friends & family are still talking about that! I seriously couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. We are grateful to have found him & plan on telling everyone we know to book with Max ASAP!!! If you want the best, book with Max now!!!

Finding Max at a Bridal Show in Ohio was one of the best things to happen for my wedding! I live in Orlando, but my wedding was in Columbus, Ohio. He even did one of our engagement sessions while he was down in Orlando one Vacation with his family. You will not find many people who are will to take time off of their vacation to make your engagement session more convenient for you! Plus we have these amazing pictures from the place we met and our relationship started. He also was kind enough to travel to Columbus on one of our many visits to do a second engagement shoot at the Park of Roses! He was so patient and flexible which was a saving grace for us, since our visits home were also short and jam packed with appointments.
On the day of the wedding he captured every moment I could have hoped for. He captured everything from me getting ready to the dancing at the reception. I did not have to worry that anything was being missed. Max and his crew were amazing and I would recommend them to everyone!!

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.

Thank you for amazing wedding pictures!

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!

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.

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. We pick up our album next week and we can't wait!

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.

Max and his team were absolutely amazing from the beginning! They constantly responded back to my emails and phone calls and were happy to do so. On the day of the wedding angi(one of the crew) came to the salon and took pictures and not only took photos she helped clean up! It was a small gesture but on the biggest day of your life it meant te world to both my mom and I. Angie made me feel comfortable when shooting the bridal pictures and I loved every minute of it. The wedding photos were stunning and max was the reason. I wish I could relive this moment everyday of my life and now I can do so by looking at my gorgeous photos! I would not of picked a better photographer or better group of people! Thanks again!

Working with Max from March until our wedding in June was a fabulous experience. From the moment we met him, he was extremely professional and easy to work with! By reading previous reviews and seeing his work from other weddings, we felt very confident in choosing him to be our photographer. He did an engagement photo shoot with us and would always email me back within a few hours every time I emailed him with questions about the big day! When the day arrived, he showed up 30 minutes earlier than he was contracted to, which always makes things less stressful. Not only was he so organized, but he acted as our wedding planner for the day. He had on a headset where he communicated with Joe, our second photographer (who was also awesome!). From the wedding, to the formal shots, to the reception photos, Max kept the day rolling and got some awesome shots. We couldnt be happier with our wedding photos! As a plud, with his wedding packages, he not only included a CD with all of our images and a photo montage, but we were given photo credit to use towards other images, a canvas print, and he had a slideshow playing at the reception of photos taken the day of the wedding. If you choose Max, you are choosing 100% professional and quality.

My husband and I live in the NYC area which made planning an Ohio wedding a bit difficult; however, thanks to Max and his flexibility, our photography went off without a hitch. In fact, Max drove all the way to NYC to do our engagement photo session. He worked extremely hard to get all of the best shots of the NYC skylines and iconic landmarks while using his creativity to make every single photo perfect. He gave us tips when needed, but always let us be "us" so that every shot was authentic. All of our friends and family members were in awe of our photos and say how they look like they're from a magazine. We wondered how he could top the engagment photos, but somehow he did! Our wedding photos were even more amazing! I have worked in advertising with some of the best photographers in the country and in my opinion, Max is one of them. From one bride to another, you will not be let down by hiring Max to do your photos. I am very picky when it comes to photography and he blew my expecations away!

Max from Maxim Photo Studio photographed our wedding in October 2011 and I could not have asked for anything more. After the first time we met, I was completely comfortable talking to him and letting him know exactly what we wanted and expected of a photographer. He went above and beyond! He did me a huge favor of fitting in our engagement shoot and getting me the pictures before our engagement party, which was such short notice for him. They turned out absolutely beautiful... The wedding day was even better! Every shot was more beautiful than the last, very artistic and in the moment; he captured a perfect timeline of the day. I cried when we got the bridal album because it was everything I could have asked for (and we got it so fast!!) I still look at the album every week because it is on our coffee table. Any guests that we have over look through it also and are so impressed with it... I don't think I could recommend him enough!!

Max is an incredibly professional photographer. He took the time to meet with us months before the wedding took place in order to get to know my wife and I. He asked tons of questions to make certain he captured moments that would reflect not our preferences and desires.

Max will do anything to get the shot. Not only does he have a great support staff that is constantly capturing photos from all angles, but Max himself was lying in streets, hanging off of lamp posts and climbing tall buildings to find the perfect picture.

I really cannot say enough about Max. He was courteous to all the amateur photographers snapping shots around him at the wedding. He made certain my wife and I were seen with all the important people in our lives. Max helped make out wedding a success and made certain we will relive it forever.

Thank you Max for being a part of our Indian Wedding. It was a crazy experience. Planning was stressful as all hell, but I never worried about the photographer.

Maxim Photo Studio is everything that you could dream of from a photography company and more. The owner, Max Surikov himself is the most professional, creative, flexible and committed photographer that there is out there. It was also evident that each of his photographers that we came into contact with are also held to these high standards. Max was our lead photographer, and the images were simply elegant and astonishing. He made my husband and I feel incredible, both beautiful and intimate, on our wedding day. We also used the Photo booth which was a huge hit! Max completed our engagement photos & our American wedding ceremony, and a different photographer for our Korean Wedding Ceremony. Each of the events’ photos turned out phenomenal, we had access very quick to them and with all of the pictures we were very pleased. Maxim Photo Studio is not only the photographers that we used for our wedding events, but now is who we consider to be the only photographer that we will trust for all of our family photos and events in the future.

We had Max for our photographer at our wedding. He did THE MOST amazing job capturing our wedding. We wanted to be able to look back in a book and remember exactly what happened and the feelings that were involved and thanks to Max we will now be able to do that. He called us weeks before the wedding, showed up before we even got to the venue, captured us, our friends, and our family, and a few days after the wedding we were able to view some of our pictures! He truly was a great photographer and I would recommend him to anyone.

Great pricing too.

Max was our photographer for our May wedding, and he was absolutely amazing! Max was very flexible and remained professional throughout our wedding day. Pictures were quickly posted on facebook (which I LOVED) and the quality was better than I had ever expected. I have received so many rave reviews about our wedding photos from family and friends. The album he put together blew me away, and my mom could not wait to show hers off to all of her friends. I couldn't have asked for a better keepsake from my wedding day! Max is AWESOME and I would recommend him to anyone who truly wants quality photos taken and a photographer who takes the time to capture all of the details! I am forever grateful for the memories he captured.

Our wedding took place on February 26, 2011 at the Dayton Art Institute. The venue was so insanely beautiful that we were quite sure we would look back on our wedding and think "you just had to be there"- We were wrong. Maxim Photo Studio captured the night in absolutely incredible artistic form. I may be bragging but I have never seen a more stunning set of wedding photos than what Maxim presented us with. The reason that you have a photographer is so that you can relive the most special day of your life every time you open your album. Max gave us the best wedding present we could get and five stars just doesn't do him justice.

Max was fantastic to work with! I'd give him 5+ stars!!!
Ironically, my first choice for photographer was snatched our from under us (the day we called to book after our meeting, someone else had just booked our date without having a meeting...), and I was very disappointed. My now-husband was particularly picky when I showed him examples of photographers I found. He didn't like ANY of them! One he did like from Cincinnati refused to meet us half-way between Cinci and Dayton. My husband and I felt that if someone couldn't bother to meet us 30 minutes away to try to earn our business, what kind of service would he give us on our wedding day? If we are willing to pay thousands of dollars for one day, we felt like going a little bit out of his way wasn't much to ask.
So.....we came across Max!
My mom always said that thing happen for a reason...well, I'm so happy to say that I am glad my first photographer was unavailable!

Max met us at our convenience and even offered to meet us near our home (even though we weren't too far from him). He emailed almost immediately in response to my initial inquiry. He was very timely, great at following up/through, did what he said he would do and when he said he would do it, and was extremely professional and straightforward with us, which was very refreshing. Our big thing was that we wanted our image files. He gives them to clients in their package, and they are in a larger format than most photographers.
Max has many packages set up and was able to explain the advantages of each. For our package an engagement session was included, as well as a reception slide show and live photo booth. Both were HUGE hits at our reception!
We also wanted to have our pictures taken at a different location before the ceremony, and he was totally fine with that. Very flexible and got many pictures in a rather different setting.

We also had him video our wedding...I had 2 friends tell me that they regretted not videoing their wedding. I didn't think one way or another about it....until after I saw our video!!! OMG! I cried when I watched it, it was soooo incredible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The images were uploaded to our secure site within a few days of our wedding and looked great! Within a couple of weeks of our wedding Max dropped off our image and video DVDs. We haven't ordered prints/albums yet, but we are sure they will be superb like everything else.

Max was refreshing to work with and has a good sense of humor and offers excellent service and value. Some photographers seemed full of themselves and do the same things everyone else does, including charging outrageous fees for each portion of their services. Max is a breath of fresh air--he does a super job and delivers super quality and goes all out--we could tell he was there to make sure we had great images to remember our day. (Also, we could hardly tell they were around during the ceremony and reception--but they got pictures of almost everything!)
A++++++++!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Max was very professional and really easy to work with, especially on the wedding day. He met with us a few months before the wedding to get to know us as a couple and get an idea about the "style" we wanted as well as to go over the package options. Before the wedding he gave me a checklist form to fill out about the pictures we definitely wanted, and on the day of the wedding he got all of them and more. Of course the timing of the day was off, but he was very flexible and we got everything taken care of. Also, within a month we were given a DVD will ALL of the pictures taken that was ours to keep. Currently, we have not yet chosen the images we want printed that will complete our package, but I am excited to work with him to finish the pics. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

He then made us feel very comfortable during our engagement photo shoot. The wedding photos are incredible. The little things that happened through the night he was able to capture. During my father-daughter dance i had a tear stream down and it was captured for me to treasure for a lifetime. Thank you for providing us ever lasting memories of the best night of our lives. There is no way for us to pick out a favorite as every shot captured the joy of the night.

He sent us a sample of some of the photos within days of the wedding, and everyone who viewed them were blown away by the professional, artistic and creative quality shown in every one of them. His photography is truely artistic and exceeded our expectations in everyway. He was so patient and easy to work with which just made our satisfaction all the greater. We had some tremendous vendors for this wedding, but none better than Max.

Max,

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the tremendous work you did with the photography of our wedding. We received many comments from our guests about how fantastic you were and never missed a moment. We were really fortunate to have you there on the most important day of our lives.

Once we received our proofs (so quickly) after the wedding, we could not believe how many special moments you had captured. You had an eye for the artistic angles that were both stylish and captivating, which will bring a unique look to our wedding album. The shots were so full of emotion that they really portrayed the mood of our wedding day. There were also those humorous candid shots that we never knew were taken. Another aspect of your photographic style that we enjoyed was not having a camera in our faces during the event. Instead, you were quietly in the background, capturing the mood and ambiance of our special day. We could not thank you more for your hard work. You were a delight to work with. Thank you again!

Most of the wedding pictures were posted online the day after the wedding, so we spent the day refreshing the page, constantly amazed at the quality of his pictures.

We would highly recommend Max to anyone looking for a photographer in the area. You won't regret it.

Maxim photo studios was amazing. The owner, Max, came just because I felt I needed him to. So, he came for the first hour, and did wonderful shots. Along with Max, were my two photographers. They were personal, helpful and made everything exactly to my liking. If there was anything we wanted, the did. It was all about US! That was wonderful. And, my album, IT'S BEAUTIFUL. I love it! People around here in Southern Ohio have never seen anything like it. I've seen albums like this all over San Francisco and LA, so it was perfect for me. Also, have all the rights to my photos is very convenient. If I could refer Maxim photo studios, I would suggest his work to anyone who wants to be catered to and cared for like family.

I honestly could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day! He was so in tune with what we wanted out of our photographs, and we were amazed at how well he interacted with our wedding party. He was able to capture the essence of our wedding without making anything too forced or unnatural. We were free to be ourselves and enjoy our day, and he was right there to photograph every last detail. I would recommend Max to ANYONE!

As a photographer myself, when my wife and I were looking for a photographer for our wedding, I knew exactly what we were looking for. Max performed flawlessly on our special day. His unobtrusive style and creativity really sets him apart from the rest. His technical knowledge of photography and his equipment really blew me away and how he was able to adjust to various lighting conditions to get the perfect shot every time is a testament to his professionalism. I highly recommend Max and his professional crew when looking for the person that will be capturing the memories of your special day.

Max was extremely professional, but also fun to work with! None of my bridesmaids felt awkward with a photographer following us around-even in the suite while we got ready. He had great ideas and I was able to put in mine as well. When reviewing the photography, it was worth every penny! I would highly recommend his services to other brides!

We booked our photographer through Bella Pictures. And they select a photographer from the area that we are in. Max was our photographer! He was great! Our wedding was last week and he emailed me to let me know that he had posted some of our picture on his website, as a preview because Bella has not posted them on thier site yet. He did some really cool shots and one of them he drove beside our car on the way to the reception and took pictures out the window. I would recommend him to anyone that asks!

Working with Max of Maxim Photo Studio was delightful and very easy to do. He was very tentative to certain requests that we had and did an amazing job, especially when it came to adapting to the size of our bridal party. With 14 bridesmaids, 9 groomsmen, and a flower girl, we were very impressed that Max was able to come up with different and creative shots.
My husband and I are very happy with the overall service and end result!

Working with Max Surikov for our wedding and engagement photos was such a positive experience for us! From our initial meeting he was extremely professional while also having a very open and creative attitude to fit the needs of me and my husband. Max is very personable, and made us feel comfortable and carefree during the wedding and also our engagement photo session. The quality of his photographs is outstanding. He seemed to easily know when to take every single shot in just the right lighting at just the right time. Max makes it look so easy! My husband and I couldn't have been more thrilled with the abundance of memorable photos he took, and how flexible and willing he is to work in new and creative shots. We've already recommended Max to numerous friends and family members, and we hope to use him in the future for our photo needs when we start a family down the road.

It was a pleasure to work with Max. He did a wonderfula job and truly went the extra mile to help make our wedding day a very memorable experience. Max has a unique ability to capture a multitude of "in the moment" pictures. If a picture can speak a thousand words, then Max can write a novel.

Max was great and very flexible during our reception. He captured many of our best memories from our wedding day and was very good and taking the pictures without being seen.

My biggest compliment to Max and something that I always point out to my friends is that when his time was up for the night he cam to us and asked if there was anything else he could do for us. He ended up staying for an extra 30 minutes free of charge to take the final photos with family and friends that we knew we wanted. We will always be thankful to Max for these valuable photos.

I REALLY recommend Maxim Photo Studio to do your wedding. He is VERY quick to respond, he's very flexible and professional and VERY easy to work with. He has so many added benefits to his packages and prices when you book with him. Free 15 min engagement sessions (with video) when you book with him, who can beat that? Also you get free lifetime sitting sessions with him, where all you have to buy is either the disc or photos you want (very cheap way to get portraits taken, better than Target or Walmart). We just used him again to do family portraits. He comes highly recommended from me :)

Max was a very professional, friendly, and fun photographer for our wedding at the Indianapolis Art Museum. He had a great deal of enthusiasm which made us even more excited for our big day. He caught moments that tell our story of the entire day from getting ready all the way until the end of the evening when the sun went down and it was time to leave the celebration. My favorite picture was a creative idea he had of using a piece of art work in the gardens of the museum and taking three different poses within one picture. Most photographers are in the way and blocking the view of big moments for family and friends however Max was always incognito and we were amazed at how he managed to get such great pictures and remained out of our faces the entire time! I would recommend Max Surikov for a formal elegant wedding without any hesitation.
