If you're looking for your wedding photographer, then you have found them. My wife and I got married in August 2019, and we remember how daunting this search was. Max and Bre went above and beyond at every level. The communication was always quick and heartfelt. They made us feel so comfortable while being in front of the lens. We have lots of family, and they were so patient during the family portraits. We got the photos back so quickly and they sent even more shots then promised. The photos were everything we wanted and more. The coloring of the photos is so natural and timeless. Every time we go through them, it brings us back to our special day. We've referred them to our close family and friends, and they're actually shooting three of our friend's weddings in 2021. We've kept the relationship going since, and we can't wait for them to shoot our maternity shots down the line (:
Max and Bre will take care of you, and they'll make sure that all of your requests are taken care of.Sent on 12/09/2020

Can’t recommend Maxx and Bre enough!
Photographers are one of the most important wedding vendors in my opinion, and I couldn’t have been more pleased in what we found with Maxx and Bre. They are not only extremely talented at what they do, but they also made us feel so comfortable while taking our photos! I had a vision for our engagement photos, and knew I wanted a mountain landscape but didn’t know exactly where, and Maxx recommend the perfect spot. They also gave us ideas for outfits, and told us which colors to consider wearing that would photograph best with the setting, which was super helpful. When it came to our wedding pictures, I loved how much realness they captured of the day, and not a ton of awkward posed pictures. When I look back at our pictures it brings me right back to that moment, and they are so seriously so good at capturing the important memories. In addition, some of the detail photos they took ended up being some of my favorite pictures. I have recommended them, and will continue to recommend them for years to come! Thanks Maxx and Bre!!Sent on 12/12/2020
