Full Description
I aim to put my clients at ease without pressure or awkwardness, and to work harmony with their characters and expectations. I love to work with couples who want honest pictures that will be enjoyed not just by them, but also by their kids - and their kid's kids. I love couples who don't care about doing things the traditional way and not just checking things off a list or looking for basic coverage. Couples who want something different, because they're different. You will have your fully edited images on USB, plus a private gallery on my website, that you may share with whoever you wish.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Maxy Maxwell
I just love photographing weddings - it's difficult to describe my style, as I adapt to each couples requirements, and the circumstances on the day. I'm totaly adaptable and versatile. I can be a Ninja or a Ringmaster - whatever suits you. Having shot around 1500 weddings of all descriptions over the past 40 years, I have a wealth of experience - with zero complaints too! Maxy :-)

Maxy went out of his way to make us feel relaxed
We had our wedding at The Seaside Boarding House, Burton Bradstock. Maxy suggested we meet before the wedding which was a brilliant idea. On our wedding day, Maxy went out of his way to make us feel relaxed which clearly showed in our photographs. I can honestly say the pictures he capture were beyond what I had expected. They were brilliant. Thank you so much Maxy for giving us fantastic memories of our special day.

He is an excellent photographer and very friendly
Max photographed our wedding at the Grand Hotel in Torquay. He is an excellent photographer and very friendly. He mingled in with the guests and took many really lovely natural photographs and worked tirelessly to ensure he had captured all the images we wanted from our special day. The Grand Hotel have used one of Maxys photos of our wedding for their marketing brochure and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for a photographer. We now have a fantastic album we can look back on for years to come. Thanks Max

Just trust in his eyes and experience!
I can highly recommend Maxy! He was truly amazing on our day! He wasn't afraid to run extra miles to have a perfect shoot! Fixed my dress several times, made sure the surrounding is perfect as well! We have lovely shoots of our guests as well, very natural and warm. Had some very unique idea, swing my dress backwards and forwards, didn't understand why, but when I seen the results it was like a screen from a movie. Just trust in his eyes and experience, won't regret it!

Very discreet during the day!
Maxy was A1 5*+. He produced such beautiful and thoughtful pictures of our wedding day, interpreted by vague instructions fantastically. Very discreet during the day. Great at communication. I’m wanting to get some family pictures done and won’t hesitate to ask Maxy

Maxy and his team did a fantastic job.
Maxy and his team did a fantastic job photographing our wedding. They're friendly, constantly on the ball and made great use of the location we were in by picking the best and most interesting environments to create some unforgettable pictures. We requested that they take serious photos as well as fun and quirky ones throughout the day and he made sure to catch plenty of both style. Our wedding day was fantastic, and thanks to Maxy's photography we have a great album capturing all of it. I'd highly recommend Maxy for any occasion.
