Hi, I'm Max. I shoot portraits for families and, also, engagements & weddings in Southern California.
I really enjoy photography because it's the main way I experience the beauty of the world we live in. When I'm shooting it's impossible for me to not feel connected to God and his creation. I also love creating and building things that have great aesthetics so photography is the most practical way for me to fulfill that passion.
How did you get into photography? I grew up admiring my mother's passion for photography and film developing, then got into photography myself around 2007 through a Black and White film class with my friends. In 2012 I got married and decided to create a business in order to build something that I can be proud of and make some money as well.
How would you describe your photography style? Classic, intimate, light-focused. I freak out when I see good lighting and my photos mostly revolve around that.
What kind of cameras do you shoot with? Canon full-frame and prime lenses.
Other stuff about me...I'm really laid-back and mostly introverted. I grew up in a Military family which meant we moved a ton so I've learned how to adapt and meet new people. Ultimately, I really care about relationships, my wife, God, beer, coffee, good movies, interior design and golden hour.
