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.

Max put our minds at ease and gave us inside advise from all his experience
Planning a wedding is a lot of work, so many details that need to be done. Once my husband and I decided to use Max as our photographer it was one less stress taken off our shoulders.
Before the wedding we met up and went over what to expect during the wedding and right before. Max put our minds at ease and gave us inside advise from all his experience.
During the wedding he got so many shots I didn’t even know he got. Now that we have our photos back it’s like reliving our special day over and over. We can look back and know excatly what we were doing when Max got that shot. The natural pictures are my favorite, in those you can truly see the love, happiness and excitement in everyone’s faces.
Planning a wedding is a lot of work but having people like Max to help makes all the difference!

Our pictures are beautiful and something we will always cherish
We won a free engagement shoot from Max at a bridal event. We had no clue what to expect and are very pleased with the way our pictures turned out. Max made us comfortable and helped us relax so we could enjoy the moment. As a result of his vision, patience and creativity our pictures are beautiful and something we will always cherish. Thank you Max!

Max is not only an excellent photographer but a wonderful person
Max is not only an excellent photographer but a wonderful person. I cannot stress enough how easy he made things for us during the whole wedding preparation process and on the day itself. From the first emails we interchanged we clicked which was easy since he is approachable ,helpful and kind. He was also flexible, always on time, had great suggestions and he worked really fast (photos were ready long before I was expecting). The photographer is one of the most important parts of your wedding because someone needs to be there making sure the essence of every beautiful moment is captured and saved for posterity. It takes not only an artist but a person with a special talent for reading people to achieve photos that are not only beautiful but reflect the bide and groom’s personality in the best light possible. I can assure you Max is that person. He is a photographer of feelings and he did not miss a single one at our wedding. I cant stop looking at my photos since it feels like living all those moments again. I wish every other couple who wants to celebrate their love and save it forever the same luck that we had when we found him.
Thank you Max, for everything, we are so happy that we chose you! Keep doing what your doing, bringing happiness to people is a beautiful thing!

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!
