My husband and I are so glad we hired John and Max Mills for our wedding and engagement photo shoot. They were very professional and responded on time for everything. The albums that they made were just beautiful!!! We will treasure the photos forever.

Max and John Mills provided photography services for our wedding at La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes. They were one of the recommended vendors, and we're so glad that we used them! First, they had an excellent knowledge of the venue and all of the best times and places for photographs tot be taken so we were sure to get the best photos possible given the time of day of our wedding. And, of course, we did!!! We were fortunate to have a fabulous day which allowed them to take breathtaking photos over the ocean, in the gardens, outside as the sun was going down, and inside after the sun was set. We are extremely pleased with the quality and clarity of the photos. They were able to capture exceptional moments before and during the ceremony and throughout the reception. Max and John make the entire process of working with them easy. We had a pre-wedding meeting with them to review our preferences and wishes; they split up the day of the wedding and each took pictures of the brides and their families, and then we did group pictures prior to the ceremony; they worked together the remainder of the evening with us having no idea they were even there; and several weeks following the wedding they contacted us to let us know our pictures were up on a website for review. Simple, simple, simple! They have done a terrific job for us, and we can't wait to get our completed album. We highly recommend John and Max Mills!!!

John and Max recently photographed our wedding, as well as our engagement shoot. Our venue provided a list of photography options, but within minutes of our first meeting with Max we knew this was the right choice. Both John and Max are warm, funny and enjoyable to work with. We wanted people at our wedding that we connected with - as well as them being great at their job. They make the experience of being photographed (something I am not a fan of) a pleasure, and their work is beautiful. They work so well together and they were able to customize a package to suit our needs.

At the wedding they were both the perfect blend of organizing and hands off. There are so many shots where I don't even recall a photographer being present!

The photos from both our engagement "get to know you" shoot and the wedding are stunning. They really show off the beauty of the venue and the vibrant colors of the area. In addition our posed shots look great and the more candid shots are so much fun.

We are so glad that we picked John and Max for our special day.

Professional Network & Endorsements

We loved working with John & Max Mills Photography recently at MountainGate Country Club. They did a wonderful job capturing photos of the the day's events and also of the wedding decor. We hope to work with this photographer again soon!

What can we say about John & Max Mills Photography! Over the years we've worked with many photographers, but John & Max stand out for the quality of their work, their professionalism and the passion that they have for photography and knowing how to capture the little nuances that make your wedding day special! John & Max are one of our favorite photographers to work with! We like them and confidently refer them to all of our clients that are looking for photography!

In the last 20 years I have been involved in more that 1400 weddings. In that time I have worked with countless photographers and I must say John and Max are outstanding. Capturing every moment is important but doing it in an unobtrusive manner is paramount. So many photographers eat up considerable time with "photo" delays. Meaning stopping the flow to get a picture. Their work may be good but at what cost to your precious ceremony & reception time. Unfortunately this is something you won't realize until your reception is over it's too late. Capturing the moment without interruption is an art form and John and Max are the masters. Taking into consideration of the amount of money you will spend on your wedding, the time they will save you during your rececption alone, make them worth every penny. You will not find a better pair of photographers!

One of the very best in the industry! You'll love your pictures and you'll Love John and Max! - April Whitney Events

Great photos and great people. John & Max are such a pleasure to work with. They are always ready to get that "perfect" shot. I've had them do my head shots that turned out great.
