Meet Wedding Photographer Max Sadik
I believe that this company, myself, and all our employees should always do exactly what we said we are going to do – our word should always be our bond.
I believe that it is our responsibility to preserve the emotion in the photos so that the couple’s children, grandchildren, and future generations can truly understand the feelings this couple had for each other.
I believe that relationships between people are the most important aspect of life!
Why I Became a Wedding Photographer
I chose to specialize in capturing relationships because I truly believe that relationships between people are the most important part of life. While I love photography, what is really important to me is the ability to capture the emotional connection that exists between two people and preserve it for years to come.
Photography is a unique tool that allows me to capture an interaction that documents the feelings of the involved people. Whether it is between a couple in-love, a parent and a child, or even guests at a wedding and the bride and groom, there exists an emotional connection, a feeling of sorts, which is what I am after. I am obsessed with capturing that feeling in a visual way and preserving it for eternity. Knowing that you will be able to look back at the images we produce together and instantly be brought back to the most special moment of your life is what I am obsessed with. If I can make you feel that way again every time you see the image, even decades later, than it was all worth it!
Choosing a photographer for your wedding day will be one of the most important decisions that you will make as you will spend more time with your photographer than anyone else. I cannot overstate the importance of making sure that the wedding photographer you choose (whether it will be me or someone else) shares values with you and produces work that grabs your attention and evokes emotions for you. I am humbled to think that I may be honored with the most important task of documenting the most special day of your life for you.
I believe that the photographer is not only responsible to accurately capture your wedding day, but is also responsible to work with the couple during the period before the wedding to accurately gain understanding of who they are. Knowing the couple on a personal level allows me to capture your wedding the way you would have captured it yourself.
In order to provide all that attention and to develop a relationship with each couple, I limit the number of couples I work with to 25 couples per year. This allows me to devote plenty of time to each couple. During this time, we will learn to trust each other, which will allow us to create something amazing together.
After your wedding, I will be spending many hours carefully retouching each image. When retouching the wedding, I listen to the sound tracks that played at your wedding to recreate the atmosphere of the day. The goal is to provide images that accurately depict that special day, while also making you feel what you felt on the most special day of your life.
While there are always posed shots in every wedding I shoot, I photograph every wedding to the most part in candid / photojournalistic styles. My objective during the ceremony and the reception is to be as inconspicuous as possible so that I can accurately capture the day. During the portrait sessions, we will of course have the traditional posed portraits. In addition, we will capture portraits that depict your natural interactions. Over the years I have learned to get the couple comfortable during a session and bring them to a point at which they forget I am there. This is when the best images happen; this is when the jaw-dropping unforgettable images are created.
Where Do We Shoot?
PLUS, we do not charge any travel fees within the Continental United States.
While we are available to capture weddings abroad as well, we limit abroad weddings to 6 per year and a travel fee may apply depending on the destination.
After a couple decides that they like my style, we begin with a simple casual phone conversation. During the phone conversation, you will tell me all about your special day. After we get to know each other a little bit, I will walk you through the different photography packages I offer and the price list. During the phone call I will answer any and all questions you may have. If you forget to ask something or have additional questions, you are always welcome to setup additional calls.
After the conversation on the phone, if you believe that we are the right fit, we can set up a meeting in person or via Skype. While I like to meet my couples in person and begin getting to know them as soon as you decide to retain our services, I understand that some couples have a demanding schedule and may not be able to accommodate a meeting at the beginning. However, if we do not meet before you book me for your wedding, we will definitely need to meet sometime before the wedding. An engagement session (which is included with several of our packages free of charge) is a great way for us to meet and spend some time together.

He's a magical, photographing ninja.
So here’s the thing with Max… He’s a magical, photographing ninja. We hired him to do the photography at our wedding and it was amazing. I don’t know how he does it, but he got the most perfect shots. When we first met him, we hit it right off and it never felt awkward with him. He’s unique, professional, and a genius.
Fabulous experience with Max!

Delivered all of our event photos extremely quickly
Max is a true professional, he showed up on time, delivered all of our event photos extremely quickly and even made a generous donation to our foundation. Its rare to find professionals that have such talent and compassion all in one! Thanks Max!
Max is polite, professional, and very talented
Mr. Sadik was recommended to me through my modeling agency, MASModels, and I loved the shots he took so much that my (then) fiancée and I decided to hire him to take our wedding photos as well! Max is polite, professional, and very talented with angles and edits. I would recommend him to anyone looking to book a wedding photographer. He is very versatile, and will bring your visions to life!
I will cherish those photos for the rest of my life!
Max did an amazing job with our baby announcement and newborn photos, he captured our baby’s personality in a way that newborn photos rarely do! He was able to work around the baby’s inability to cooperate and his moods, as well as my inability to move well at 8 months pregnant. I will cherish those photos for the rest of my life!

He truly captured our true happiness and love for one another!
Jon and I had the pleasure of working with Max on our engagement pictures. I am not a fan of pictures of myself but the way Max captured our moment made me cry. He made us feel so comfortable and relaxed that we were ourselves; and by doing this he truly captured our true happiness and love for one another! I can’t wait to work with Max at our wedding…thank you so much for these memories!
