Being a photographer is more than just showing up on the day, it's about being a part of it. Photographically, I like to place myself in and amongst the action, making sure that I don’t miss a moment.


How long do you usually stay for?

As long as the party is still going... Being based in Jersey, I usually travel all over the UK photographing weddings. Whilst most photographers might exit after the first dance in order to get home, I like to stay and soak up the atmosphere.

How many images do we get?

There is no limit. An average full day wedding will consist of anything between 600-1000 images. I try my best to capture as many guests as possible, and due to the documentary nature of my style, nothing posed, nothing staged.

Do you do group photographs?

Nowadays, group photographs are more for the parents of the bride and groom than they are for the couple. Gran will definitely want a group photo so there is an element of keeping everyone happy. I find that group photographs are not only a perfect present later down the line, but they also set the stage for intimate interactions between family members old and new.

Do you travel?

Way back in 2019 BC (Before Covid), travel was the easiest thing in the world. With some much uncertainty around travel at the moment, it's hard to say whether this kind of flexibility is possible moving forward. I can't wait for the world to open up again, and so long as there is a healthy amount of time either side of your wedding date, I'm happy to travel wherever you plan on tying the knot. But for now, I think it's safer for everyone to reimagine the traditional wedding closer to home.

How would you describe your work?

Look no further...


Max was there from start to finish. He captured the whole day so beautifully. I think he has probably seen us kiss about 1,000 times now be he remained engaged and professional throughout the entire day. It is amazing how someone so tall can become so invisible when he needs to be so as to get the most natural and unforced shots! You really do forget you’re on camera. The photos are everything we dreamed of and so much more. I couldn’t recommend Max more to capture your wedding day!

Never in our wildest dreams did we think our photos would be as incredible as they are. After you have your venue, finding the perfect photographer is the most important choice you will make and I can honestly say they don’t come any better than Max. I really cannot speak highly enough of Max, he really puts in extra effort to ensure you look and feel great as well as keeping timings of the day for you so the day doesn’t run away from you (which was really appreciated!)

We couldn’t recommend Max more highly! I am not the most comfortable in front of a camera but Max managed to put me at ease and took some beautiful shots of us on our wedding day. The photos are captured memories of the really special parts of our day rather than posed which has made choosing a select few to print an extremely difficult job. Everyone we have shown our photos to has loved them and they truly reflect the best day of our lives.
