Austin Wedding Photographer Reviews

Since starting this company in 2007, I’ve never received anything less than a five-star review. You can read about how I’ve taken care of past wedding clients on Yelp, Google, WeddingWire, and The Knot, or you can read all of my wedding reviews here. It may take you a while--my reviews take up over 25 single-spaced pages. Once you’ve gotten an idea of how much my clients love me, contact me to see how I can help capture your wedding or event. You’ll probably love me too.

These are just a few of the many gushing comments and compliments I have received in the last 12 hours from posting our wedding album on Facebook:

"Your wedding photos are AMAZING."

"Your wedding photos are great!! Good job picking your photographer!"

"Their photog team was great, truly."

THANK YOU, Justin and Max Photography!!!!

My husband and I got married in early September, and I just cannot say enough good things about Justin and his photos. The relationship he formed with us at the very start was one of the first things I liked about Justin. I knew immediately that he was trustworthy and really CARED about us and had our best interests in mind. He's so flexible, and such a kind person, and so professional all at the same time! And I really couldn't have asked for a better wedding album. The photo booth was of course a hit, and totally worth the money. (My husband also used Justin's photo booth at a work event, and it was a hit then, too.) If I could give 100 stars, I would. He got the photos to us SO quickly -- we were still on our honeymoon when he was finished! And they're wonderful!!! My sister got married before me, and was so disappointed with the pictures that I was nervous about getting a good photographer. These guys know exactly what they're doing, and the quality is amazing; thoughtful, creative, well-lit photos. We couldn't be happier. DEFINITELY use Justin and Max Photo!!! THANK YOU, Justin!!!!!!

These. Are. Amazing.

I was tearing up again looking at some of these last night, and you've done such a great job of getting every detail, knowing how important those were to us. Gah, you rock.

Reviews incoming, but spoiler alert, we loved working with you and would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much, Justin!


Justin is the best around, hands down.

When we started researching photographers, we were skeptical that he had nothing but five-star reviews. Who is this guy? Surely somebody has had a bad experience? No. People are giving him five stars only because they can't give him six or 10 or a friggin' galaxy.

We loved how communicative and thoughtful Justin is. When we'd ask a bunch of questions about timing or shot lists, he replied promptly with honest and helpful answers. When we met up with him before the event, he instantly felt like an old friend. His kind demeanor and joking personality made us feel super at ease on the big day (no mean feat!), and his second shooter and photo booth attendant were stellar as well.

We are in love with our wedding photos—a perfect balance of candids, portraits, details, and scenery, all with great lighting and an eye for composition—and we now just have to make difficult decisions about how many we want to print for ourselves and family. No one could've captured us or our day better.

P.S. Justin gets bonus points for being the only one of our vendors to consistently cc both of us on emails instead of just replying to one or the other. (You'll be amazed at how rare that is!)

If we could give Max photography 100 stars, we would! We are two moms with a three-year-old little girl, finally getting legally married after 12 years as a couple/family. As soon as we met Justin, we knew he was the right person to photograph our wedding. He was responsive and thoughtful, and guided us through the process of photographing a wedding with patience and humor. He was completely in-tune with what we wanted, knew the questions to ask, and remembered the little details. Several of our wedding guests gushed about how fantastic the photographer was - everyone loved him! Most importantly, our photos are breathtaking. You won't find better quality and professionalism at this price in Austin, trust us.

Look no more! Justin and his team were absolutely outstanding!!! He and his team covered our guest welcome reception as well as the entire wedding day. He was amazing to work with. You can't go wrong. Everyone said his photos belonged in a bridal magazine. Justin also listened to our requests. The photo booth was definitely a plus. The real gem however was Justin and his outstanding work. Photos was one of my top vendor concerns and Justin was a 10+!!!

I don’t have words for how pleased we were with Max photography. This is your place to go. We loved Justin and his team. Look no further. I am a picture fanatic and Justin exceeded our expectations!!! We loved him!!!

Max Photography did a wonderful job with our wedding photography! Justin is the nicest guy and incredibly good at finding photographic moments. We highly recommend him, as someone who is easy to work with and also a terrific photographer.

Justin, owner of Max Photography, and his lovely assistant shot our wedding at Star Hill Ranch last Sunday. Justin is personable and funny, and so talented. We wanted to hire him the moment that we met him. Today, he sent a few sample shots from our wedding and they are wonderful. We looked relaxed and happy in our photos, and one reason for that is how comfortable Justin made us feel (and at least one of us typically gets a little awkward when getting our picture taken). We highly recommend Max Photography for your event!

If you're looking for a photographer, look no further! We recently booked Max Photography for our engagement photos and we couldn't be happier! Justin was so wonderful to work with. He was able to schedule us in the time frame that we needed. He's very easy going and made it comfortable for us to stand in front of a camera. The pictures are absolutely beautiful! His prices are very reasonable. You'll definitely get a great experience and the best quality with Max Photography!


Rebecca Kelley and Thomas Berg

Ceres Park Ranch

Justin and his assistant were fun, energetic, and professional from start to finish. After meeting with us to learn more about our preferences, he knew exactly what was needed and worked hard to turn those ideas into reality.

Our wedding ceremony was just inside a large doorway with the afternoon sun behind us. Must say I was concerned about lighting. Justin had the right equipment ready to make it a non-issue, and the photos turned out great!

We had a blast with Justin and wouldn't hesitate to hire him again for another event. Nice guy, a class act, and great at his job. Highly recommended.

Melissa: Justin was great to work with! He made everyone feel comfortable and really did an awesome job documenting our wedding. Highly recommended!

Justin is the nicest guy and incredibly good at finding photographic moments. We highly recommend him, as someone who is easy to work with and also a terrific photographer.

Kyle: My wife and I used Max photography and were exceptionally pleased with the results!! Justin and his team were outstanding and we both cannot speak highly enough. We will no doubt be using him again!

Justin- we absolutely LOVE them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know what else to say for now, we're just now looking them over.


I will absolutely give you reviews tomorrow, after how perfect everything turned out. Thank you so incredibly much!!!!


One of the things I’m happiest about from my wedding day is choosing Justin at Max Photography for our wedding photos. His pre-wedding communication was phenomenal, and his pricing for our photo package AND the photo booth was absolutely amazing, it was a deal I don’t think anyone could match!!! Let’s start with the photo booth… What a hit with the wedding guests!!!!! He provided a chest of props, and people were in and out of the photo booth all night! It’s so great that it prints 3 strips, we left a guest book with tape for guests to leave a strip behind and write a note next to their pictures... and it’s seriously the funniest/ best thing to look back on now after the wedding! He gives you a USB drive of all the photos from the photobooth too, so that way you’ll have them forever! :)

As for his wedding photos- Justin and his assistant were amazing at staying out of the way, but still capturing amazing and intimate shots throughout the day and night. He was so kind at giving directions for me and my husband, and let me tell you, he will make you and your spouse look BEAUTIFUL! No awkward poses, I promise! They captured so many precious moments of the night, and went above and beyond the photos I requested they take, capturing so many more memories than I ever thought imaginable! The photos are beautiful, and capture everything I’d want to remember from my wedding day. Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts!!

OMG OMG OMG I LOVE THEM!!! You did such a fantastic job.


We absolutely FELL IN LOVE with Justin and Max Photography. He photographed our engagement, rehearsal dinner, and wedding and we could not have dreamed up a better photographer for us. From the very beginning Justin made sure that we were comfortable and that our true selves came out in the photos. After our engagement session we got so many compliments because the photos were just incredible. Justin allowed us to be spontaneous and playful and was a great mix of candid and posed. He worked with us to find the photo package that fit our budget and got the pictures back to us in an extremely timely manner compared to our friends' photographers. Justin took time to help us find great locations for photos and took the time to take as many photos as he could. The communication was great and as an LGBT couple he made us feel VERY welcome and comfortable. I don't think we could say enough about Justin and how amazing he was. If we ever need professional photos taken again, he is our guy. I see that he is known for his photo booth, but he should be known for his photography. The guy is a pro and a gem!

OMG thank you so much I love all the pictures. I was nervous about the rain making them look gloomy but you guys knocked it out of the park!! I am so happy with how they turned out. Once again thank you so much we will definitely recommend to all of our friends!

Thanks!

I received all of the pictures and they are absolutely perfect and beautiful!! I love the bright and airy feel of the photos! I CAN’T WAIT to share them! Thank you so much for capturing my special day! You were so easy to work with and made my day a breeze.


I needed a photographer in a short amount of time for a last minute wedding I was having in Austin. I found Justin through the venue's website and loved his work I saw on his website. I emailed him and he was very quick to respond! He was awesome to work with and so friendly. He made my special day a breeze! Highly recommend!


Lauren Ayala and Matt Flack

Golf Club of Texas

Hey Justin! We LOVE LOVE LOVE the photos!! They are so good and definitely captured the night. We had such a good time looking at them and at how much fun people had.


I will be working on finishing all my reviews this week and all I can say is y’all earned 5 stars. I wish I could give you more.


I really wish I could give Justin and his team more than five stars! We got married November 2018 in San Antonio, TX and Justin did our engagement and wedding photography. The entire experience was so easy, professional, and fun. I cannot express how amazing the quality of the photos are; plus, the photo packages are quite reasonable for what you get! Further, we used the Max photo booth and it was a HUGE hit! The quality of the photo booth pictures are the best I've seen and it was so easy to share them with our guests. All of my guests loved Justin and his team and commented on how amazing our photographers were. I cannot recommend Justin and his team enough. They truly captured the best moments of our wedding and I'm grateful that we'll have these photos forever. Thank you Justin!

LET US TELL YOU THAT OUR EXPECTATIONS HAVE BEEN EXCEEDED! Fantastic photos, thank you thank you


We recently used Max Photography for our small intimate wedding. Justin and his assistant were prompt, a pleasure to work with and they captured wonderful photos for our special moment. We had no other photos so we relied totally on the photographers and we were not disappointed with the final edited results, which were also available within weeks of our event. I highly recommend them and they were quite reasonable!


Andre De La Garza and Jacki De Los Santos

Also, the photos came out lovely. We are so grateful to have had you as or photographer. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day.

The team did a fantastic job in accommodating our unique take on a wedding. It was a wonderful experience that resulted in some amazing photographs of our special moment. If I ever need to have professional photography work done in the Austin area again I know exactly who to contact.


Amy Robinson and Devin Ponder

McKinney Falls State Park

Justin was the best! I would recommend him to my closest friends. Such good people. He made us feel so comfortable even though we were totally out of our element. He estimated about two weeks to get the photos back to us and was just a couple days over the two week mark. What was great though is he texts us and let us know when they would be ready!


Robyn Larson and William Kohlbeck

The Lookout

Justin is the best! Made me feel so comfortable during such a busy and somewhat nervous day. I couldn't of been happier with how he captured every single detail of the evening. He is always one step ahead of what you would want and takes charge is a subtle way that you feel confident. I happy that he captured all the great memories because that evening went by so fast. And not to mention he suffered through a heat wave (index 115 degrees) in dress slacks like a trooper. Thank you Justin!


Betsy Ketner and Gregory Johnson

Chapel Dulcinea and Trattoria Lisina

I could not be happier with our photographers and their hard work to capture one of the best days of our lives. The photos blew us away, and they were so much fun at the event! The prices were the best value for the time they put in, compared to any of our other vendors.


Melissa Shannon and Todd Serpico

Justin did a great job with our photos. Book the photo booth-- sooo fun! Copies of all the pictures, a DVD of them. He was so enthusiastic and supportive. He takes amazing photos!


Brittney Hinze and Travis Wright

Best Photographer! I am even saying that without seeing our photos. We just got married a couple of weeks ago and our photography experience could not have gone better. I was nervous because my husband is not a huge fan of taking photos, so I let the photographer know that. Not once was he ever pushy or ask us to get in all those awkward cheesy poses. He made us feel as if he wasn't even there. We did not have the easiest settings for him. The bridal house had close to no lighting or A/C, and he never complained. He was constantly laughing with us girls and making me feel completely comfortable. I felt as though I had known him for years. He was so professional and nice. Every time something memorable would happen, I would look up and there he was. He never missed a beat! Definitely go with Max Photography!!!!


Lauren Forcade and Phillip Ruthven

Memory Lane Event Center

We originally chose Max Photography for our photo booth, and after communicating with the owner Justin through email we decided to book Max Photography as our wedding photographer and for the bridal portraits. We had such an amazing experience with Max Photography! The owner Justin is amazing and has a great personality. He met with us several times in person to plan the bridal shoot and wedding photography. He was very flexible and accommodating and had great customer service. I'm pretty sure I emailed him a thousand times before our wedding, and he replied to every single email, always super nice and helpful. I was really nervous about my bridal portraits and didn't feel comfortable. As soon as he starting shooting the photos I felt instantly better because he has a way of making you feel comfortable. I loved the bridal portraits so much. The wedding photography turned out amazing! We had so many compliments during the reception and after the wedding about Max Photography. My guests really liked Justin and his assistant, they both had great personalities and we enjoyed having them. Max photography also did our photo booth and it was a hit! If you want to have a little something extra at your wedding I suggest getting the photo booth with Max Photography. It looks really nice and they have an assistance by the photo booth helping the guests out with the memory book. I just can't say enough about Max Photography, they are by far our favorite vendor from our wedding. We will definitely be using them in the future!


Sarah Quinn and Dan Strack

The Allan House

We can't say enough about Max Photography. Justin Elledge was our photographer for our engagement photos and our wedding. He is extremely down to earth, a very good guy and an even better photographer. His prices are very reasonable and the pictures came out great.


We gave Justin a few photo shoot ideas, but let him use his artistic eye and photography skills for all shots. We couldn't be happier with how everything came out and would recommend Max Photography for any wedding or event. The photo booth was a huge hit at the wedding and we received a thumb drive that night with all the photo booth pictures, which were a blast to look at. From organizing friends and family for photos to capturing all the highlights of the night, Justin is a top-notch photographer that I'd recommend to anyone.


Audrey De Zeeuw and Craig Boklage

Justin and his assistant Andy photographed our wedding this past weekend and let me say, TOP NOTCH!


I was a no-fuss, pretty chilled out bride and didn't need an engagement session PLUS getting ready photos and didn't want the weird forehead to forehead shots and just needed a photographer for the key moments (walking down the aisle, parents, families, the union, etc.) Justin was prompt to respond to emails, on time to our ONE (yes, one meeting), scouted the location, showed up early and was super chill. Although I hired him for a few hours, he stayed longer! And captured some incredible moments. I could not recommend him more.


Way to go, he's the best!

Max photography ROCKS!!! Justin (the owner) is awesome to work with and was a great addition to our wedding. His prices are hard to beat for the quality. We ended up having him do our photography and we rented his photo booth for the wedding. Everyone loved the photo booth and we loved Justin's photos. He was so attentive to my numerous emails (which were always loaded with questions I might add) and he always kept a pleasant attitude. His crew was just as great as he was so they were all easy to work with. Even though we had a few hiccups on our timeline Justin worked it all out so it was seamless. I couldn't have been happier with having Max Photography for our wedding and would totally recommend him to anyone!!

I. LOVE. MAX PHOTOGRAPHY.


Justin Elledge is the owner/ photographer of Max Photography and he is awesome! I used Max Photography’s photo booth services for my wedding reception and it was a huge hit! Initially we were hesitant to add an extra expense for entertainment because our budget was already stretched so thin but the photo booth was worth every penny and more. The quality, design and layout of the prints were better than a lot of the photo booths I’ve seen from various weddings and events. Justin was an absolute pleasure to work with; he was one of our favorite vendors and just so… cool! Forget any other vendor you’ve considered to cover you photo booth needs- MP tops them all in value, quality and professionalism! We had a good number of young kids at our wedding who were in and out of the booth all night; it was so hard to squeeze in a shot between all the kids going in and out. Justin was so patient with all of them- never made any negative remark, eye-roll or showed a hint of annoyance. At the end of the night, he had already begun to pack up when I asked him if I could pop in for one more series, he was happy to load all the equipment back in to fulfill my wishes. What more could you ask for a as a bride than to have a vendor that truly cares about your experience with them and strives to make you happy? I will say it again… I. LOVE. MAX PHOTOGRAPHY. End of Story.


Angela Tong and Joe Logan

Justin was easy to work with and the photobooth was a hit. Our wedding guests loved it! And our photos were posted quickly, 2 days after our wedding. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to take more photos in it! The photo quality for a photobooth was amazing and I really loved the white backdrop .



Judy G. (Mother-of-the-bride)

Star Hill Ranch

We LOVED Justin and 5 days after our daughter's wedding we saw a few sample pictures on line that were so beautiful. Max Photography is professional, creative, and well priced and we are already talking about planning another event just so we can hire Justin and have him around!


Harley Maclerran and Jonathan Elliott

All across the board great!!


Janelle Robinette and Paul Long

Grand Promenade, San Antonio

We booked an open air photo booth for our wedding and could not have done any better than Max Photography! Justin created an incredibly perfect logo for the photos and all our guests had a blast taking pictures throughout the night. Daniel was an incredible host at the booth and was super fun! I got so many compliments on the booth and the pics... and I have a wonderful book of the photos to cherish forever! By far the best booth you can have. He has lots of options, so you can truly have whatever your heart desires. They nailed it!


Autumn Ayala and Ashwin Kalia

The Kendall Plantation

I can't say enough about Justin and his beautiful pictures! Our engagement and wedding photos were stunning...if you are on the fence, just do it! He is patient, helpful, and very reasonable compared to other options in terms of price...you won't be sorry!


Cheryl Ball and Jason Favors

Voodoo Doughnut

Justin was fantastic to work with! We had a very non-traditional wedding and wanted a mix of traditional and non-traditional photos. He was very laid back and up for whatever we wanted to do. Our photos came out great! He nailed all the key moments. I cannot recommend Justin enough.


Julie Adam (Daughter-of-the-bride)

Private Residence

Wow! Working with Justin was such a pleasure. I found him on the internet for my Mother's wedding and pursued him due to his high ratings.Now I'm giving him a high rating! Everything from answering questions in a timely manner to planning the wedding shots to delivering the final photographs was so professional. Justin was warm, personable, accommodating,and truly listened to and heard our wishes for the photographs. In the end, the entire family can't stop raving about the photographs. I've already been thinking about what upcoming events I can hire Justin and Max Photography for in the future. I look forward to working with him again. Thank you, Justin, for making my Mother's special day even more special!


Aleina Kreider and Ben Roth

Terradorna

Justin was so easy and fun to work with--he was totally on board with all things non-traditional about our wedding, and I felt like he was enjoying himself at our wedding, so I have no doubt he got some great pictures; I can't wait to see them! He gave just the right amount of direction and encouragement while we were taking posed photos and this contributed to an overall stress-free wedding day. The photobooth was also a great addition--our guests enjoyed it a lot, and it was fun to look through the pictures afterwards. The quality of the printouts is so good compared to most photobooths!

Max’s Underground

Their Photobooth is amazing! Our guests had so much fun with the props. The clarity of the photos were incredible! The photo strips are double sided so guests can take one and leave another copy behind but they also provide a flash drive of all photos taken. We will be looking through the photos of all our guests for years to come to reflect on the wonderful night.


Sarah Caldwell and Anthony Frazier

The Allan House

Justin at Max Photography was great. He arrived as scheduled and had everything set up and ready earlier than planned. My guests had a great time and loved all of the fun props that are provided with the photobooth. But the best part of having this particular photobooth was the lighting. No joke. Everyone looked AMAZING in their photos. I never appreciated how much lighting played into looking good in a photo. And who doesn't love looking fabulous?!


Christina Hladik and Sebastian Knoop-Troullier

Great photographer and an awesome price.


Cat Pham and David Tran

Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center

Justin was great to work with! The booth was a hit. We had our own logo on it, which turned out well. He gave us a USB at the end of the night before we left of all the photos, which where then uploaded to facebook the next day! The photos were high quality. Thank you, Justin.


Kristen Worster and Gabriel DeWulf

Hacienda del Lago

I only have the best things to say about Max Photography! I will be using them as the photographer for my wedding in October, and I can't wait! I recommended Justin to my best friend who recently got married, and she had the best experience. I had the opportunity to see how Justin and his team works a wedding before mine, and I couldn't be more excited. Her pictures turned our great, and she had a great experience, I'm so glad I recommended him! We just had our engagement photos taken this past week, and again we were blown away with his expertise and friendly team. He has the ability to make you feel so comfortable, and now my nervous groom feels more relaxed then ever about our big day. I can't wait to see our engagement photos, and we are even more excited about our wedding now! I recommend anyone in Austin looking for a photographer use Max Photography!


Magdalena Bustillos and Adi Mata

The Driskill

Max Photography made our engagement photo session so relaxing and fun with pictures taken at multiple locations! The wedding day was amazing with all Justin, Leslie, and Andi by our side every step of the way! The different perspectives each photographer was able to capture, made our final photos intriguing and exciting. Justin responded promptly to all emails, phone messages, and even texts which always made me feel at ease and confident in Max Photography. When I saw the final pictures of our wedding day my heart was so full and memories flooded my mind because every picture captured the essence of our special day and was a true testament to our love story. The Photobooth was a hit for all our family and friends, and looking at those pictures the day after the wedding gave us nothing but laughs and happiness. TWO THUMBS UP, 5 STARS, AND A HI-FIVE FOR MAX PHOTOGRAPHY!!!


Janeil McCrury (Mother-of-the-bride)

Thanks for your part in making our daughter’s wedding so memorable! We had experienced this fun at a friend’s wedding, and still had our photo booth strips on our refrigerator when our son-in-law called to ask for our daughter’s hand. We knew immediately we wanted your booth to be part of the wedding fun, and that is was! Each guest took home a strip of their pictures as a take home favor, and pasted one in a keepsake book for the bride and groom. The props even made their way out on the dance floor! Thanks for adding some interactive, creative silliness to our perfect reception!


Amy B.

When we booked our photo booth through Max Photography, we had no idea they had a wedding package as well. We decided to use them for both, and not only got an excellent deal, but also had a great time along the way.

The booth was absolutely incredible-- really great quality, prints for guests to keep one and give one, and the photos were posted on Facebook after the event for everyone to enjoy all over again. And even better, he makes these by hand!!!

We also had engagement photos and wedding photos done by Justin and his assistant, Leslie, who made a really excellent team. Justin was there to get the perfect lighting and shoot with different lenses, while Leslie paid attention to the details of posing and hair fixing.

The photos came out in a very timely manner, and are super easy to view and order. Justin was easy to reach by email, and always responded within a day or two. When we asked for a specific shot, he was sure to get it. While they do not necessarily fit into the "Pinterest Photo" category, they were always open to new ideas and went directly off the list we provided.

We were beyond pleased with the quality AND price, and the photo booth with the props they provided were a hit for young and old alike.


Jeannie G.

My Mom and I went to several bridal fairs and would always try the photobooths, as I knew that is what I wanted at my wedding. Hands down, Max Photobooth was nicer, cleaner than any of the others. The pictures were so sharp and came out very fast. We had Justin provide a scrapbook, so each guest got their pics and he would attach the second pics to our scrapbook so guests could write a note. This was the best thing that happened at the reception. EVERYONE loved it! Many of my guests have gone to his facebook site and downloaded pics to frame. Love him!


Gretchen S.

Justin was very easy to work with. I'm so glad we used their photo booth - I love that it printed 2 strips and had our wedding logo at the bottom below the pictures. And they were on Facebook the next day! Amazing service, would definitely book again.



Brandie B.

We used Max Photography for their photo booth... It was one of the few things my husband insisted on so I was so happy to make it happen. Max Photography was also at the venue and set up before the bridal party arrived. They brought a box of fun props for people to use and there was almost always a line to get in. We also opted for them to bring a memory book for people to leave a strip of their photos and write in some notes for us. I’ve looked at it and the pictures they’ve posted on Facebook and I am so glad we did the photo booth. It was a huge hit!


Lauren S.

Renting our photobooth from Max Photography was the best decision! It was a total hit, and had a line all night! They showed up on time and were the nicest guys ever. The photobooth is great looking and huge- we got up to 7 people in that thing! Their props are hilarious and creative. Not just cheesy boas, but some really funny stuff. The pics are awesome memories we will cherish forever!


April W.

Having a photo booth at our wedding was one of the best things that we did. Our guests had so much fun taking pictures, and now we have a copy of them for our scrapbooks that we will keep forever. I cannot say enough good things about Max Photography! They were wonderful to work with from start to finish. They answered all questions in a timely manner, were very professional and helpful to guests at the event, and all of our pictures were sent to us within a week of our event. The photo booth was a great size and the picture quality is great! If you are looking for a company for your wedding, this is the way to go.


Janel R.

The photo booth was a HIT at my wedding. Such fun entertainment and a unique wedding souvenir for guests and myself. They even allow you have your own logo design on the prints and bring props to use for no extra charge. Justin (the owner) was timely in responding to emails and phone calls and was so friendly and accommodating throughout the whole process. I can't say enough about my experience with Max Photography :) Thank you Justin!!!


Jessie M.

Max (Photography) was a hit at my wedding. The best part were the free props he brought along. Guests loved it because they could take home the pictures that night with no fee and I loved it because I got a disk with the rights to all of the pictures. I give them an A++++++


Rose Kim and Chris Coletti

University Catholic Center and Sheraton Austin at the Capitol

When we decided on having our wedding in Austin, (we live in NY), we were apprehensive of how we were going to find a good photographer in the short amount of time we had, especially with planning so many other things -


Justin was so nice enough to come meet us conveniently at our hotel and within our time frame, and was so nice and honest. He gave us so many different options and flexibility, that we knew we had to go with him and his crew.


We were so excited when we got the photos! Very reliable, personable and we liked him so much we asked him to join the festivities at the end!


Thank you!!


Amanda Klockmann and Victor Gonzalez

Tuscan Hall at Chapel Dulcinea

Our wedding was on September 22nd(So a few days ago).. We haven't even gotten the professional pics yet(going to take about 4 weeks), but I already know for a fact that we will love them. Justin and his crew were amazing. The photo booth was a BIG hit at the wedding. The book we got afterwards with everyone's notes and photo booth pics was adorable. The energy that they give off is amazing. We could crack jokes with them and they would crack some back. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with their service. Also, my niece loved them. She's only 5 and she wanted to help or just have them take her picture. Lol. So I definitely recommend them! If I could give more than 5 stars, I totally would! :)


UPDATE: We got our pics while on our honeymoon cruise! As soon as I got home, I opened the email to view them and my husband and I are so pleased! Justin and his crew got every funny and serious moment. We can’t wait to get some hung around the house! Thank you guys once again! We will definitely be using you in our future and will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks!!!! :)

We planned a last minute elopement in Austin and were so lucky to find Justin literally a week before the big day. Justin was very responsive throughout the process and reasonably priced. Best of all, he's extremely talented! We were running late and didn't have a lot of time at the venue and as we were running around trying to get everything set up, he helped my friends and patiently waited on us. He really made good use of the limited time we had and captured all of our special moments. We love how our photos came out!!! Thank you Justin! We'll definitely keep you in mind for any future events.

We had a great photography experience with Justin and could not have been more pleased with our engagement photos! He was very easy to work with and made us feel comfortable during the photo shoot. We had photos taken at the 360 bridge and then South Congress and he was familiar with the area so we got some great shots. I was also very pleased with the cost--very reasonable for Austin. I highly recommend Justin and Max Photography!

Justin did a wonderful job and gave us EXACTLY what we wanted. He really listened to us and got it. I'm not sure how he does it, but the feel of the photos is warm and happy. Something about how he develops the colors ~ they have a saturated feel that is lush and inviting. He is fantastic at capturing those candid moments that tell the story, which is why we hired him - and he did not disappoint! He and his partner were very good at staying in the background yet capturing the event. Our photos were up as soon as we got back from the honeymoon! The link to the photos is great - very easy to use and to post to social media to share with everyone. Also extremely easy for everyone to order prints as they want.

We are thrilled. Thank you so much Justin for being a part of making our wedding wonderful!

Awesome - I looked long and hard for the perfect photo booth to document the craziness of my birthday party and I could not be happier with the outcome. I even went to the Austin Wedding Extravaganza - I am NOT even engaged to test out different photo booth companies and get a feel for the quality of pictures. So when I say it was a long and hard search for the right company, I mean it! I tend to be a passionate person.


The quality of the pictures is amazing, the photo booth was a complete hit at the party and the pictures were up online in less than 12 hours.


It is so true that a picture is worth a thousand words. Some of the shots were just priceless beyond belief. And Justin who was there to help us all night was such a fun, cool guy! Easy going and super helpful.


If you are considering a photo booth for any event - these are your guys!

I hired Justin and his assistant to take pictures of my outdoor wedding out in Marble Falls on March 7, 2015. Justin was very friendly and made sure to accommodate most of our photo ideas that we sent him beforehand. He was also able to take a lot of great candid photos without being intrusive. He captured many excellent shots and took his time retouching the photos to really get that professional feel. Justin truly loves taking pictures and it shows. I would highly recommended Justin at Max Photography.

I used Max Photography for our wedding in July and honestly couldn't be more happy with the job they did. A photo booth was a GREAT idea. There was a long line the entire night. Max Photography's booth is much better than the average too, they are very good quality pictures as well as a very good quality clean photo booth. I have to say Justin was just incredible to work with. His follow up was great. I even had our own logo made and he had it put on the photo strips. Our guests had many good things to say about how nice he was. It was a hit!

Also, he does bring his own props that are very fun. We had a few extra mustaches and lips that we ordered off of Etsy and did a scrapbook that people would glue their strips to and then write a message. Justin did a great job making sure everyone did it. Would absolutely refer to anyone!

French Legation Museum

What can I say about Justin and all of the folks at Max photography....So many wonderful things, really!


My husband and I just got married on March 5th and had our reception the following day on the 6th. We came across a fantastic deal through Groupon for the Max Photography photo booth rental and had that at our reception at the Parish. This was by far, the best money spent on anything at the reception. Almost all night, there was a line of people waiting to get in to take pictures. The machine prints out 2 pictures: one for your guest to keep and one for them to leave with you. We made it so people wrote a brief note on a library card and stuck that and the picture in a pocket for us to keep. We did that in lieu of a guest book, which was way cooler! Also, the quality of the pictures is so much better than any photo booth pictures I've ever taken, and they give you a box of free props to use!


Many weeks after we had booked the booth for the reception, we also ended up asking Justin to be the photographer at our wedding at the French Legation Museum. It is next to impossible to find a reasonably priced wedding photographer and we had tried and tried. In fact, the moment you attach the word "wedding" to anything, the price shoots through the roof! Justin and his team were so friendly and professional and we hardly knew they were there. He even met us a few weeks prior to the wedding at the venue to talk about various details. Without mentioning exactly what we spent, I'll say it was WAY under what other photographers would charge for doing a wedding. If you're having a simple, relatively small wedding and you want to be able to afford to have someone photograph it for you, Justin is your man for sure! Or, if you're having a huge, extravagant wedding, he's your man for that, too!


I can't recommend this company enough! You will not be disappointed if you decide to use Justin and Max Photography!


Anna G. (Mother-of-the-groom)

We had a very pleasant experience dealing with Justin, owner of Max Photography, when we hired him to provide a photo booth for our son's wedding reception.

He followed up on every detail and was prompt, courteous, and friendly.

I can highly recommend his professional services.

I got the idea of a photo booth from a friends wedding. It was so much fun and I knew I wanted one at our wedding! I searched long and hard for a photo booth that had good quality pictures, lots of fun props, and was a decent price. It was much harder than I expected it to be!! Finally I found Max Photography. They did an amazing job!! I think there was a line most of the night to take pictures. And I think we even ran over time a little bit due to the line. Overall they were amazing and great to work with!


Kathleen K. (Mother-of-the-groom)

Mercury Hall

Max recently did the photography and photo booth at my son's wedding. If you need a wedding photographer look no further. These folks are incredible. Within 24 hours, my son was able to post the link to the photobooth pics on Facebook. Their photography can be what I would call formal, but also fun and artsy. They came to the wedding prepared. That may sound silly, but I have dealt with other photographers in the past (bar mitzah, bat mitvah, yada yada), and I can tell you these guys (and woman) are tops.


Vicki Brummett and Philip Walls

Justin did a great job with my wedding photos. He's pays attention to detail and was sure to get every pose we requested. He was timely editing and keeping us informed. During the shoot he was very kind and patient. He comes highly recommended by myself and my husband!!


Kyara Moss and Mike Salkin

Butler Park

I reached out to Justin to take engagement photos of my fiancee and me. He did a wonderful job capturing the moments (and recommending places to use for our shoot). We both were very pleased with our services and would highly recommend Justin. It is obvious that he takes his work very seriously and has his clients best interest at heart. Plus, is pricing is very affordable!


Presley Brown and Andrew Pullan

Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center

Justin has never gotten less than a 5 star rating, and there's a reason for that. We booked him very last minute for our wedding, and he was so helpful and made sure to keep in contact with us every step of the way in the weeks before. He captured our day perfectly, and was SO pleasant to work with. Could NOT recommend him enough!


Martha Velasquez and Kelvin Duran

Duchman Winery

We had the best experience with Justin. He did an amazing job at our wedding and would recommend Max Photography to anyone!


Daniel G.

I booked Max Photography based purely on the great reviews on Yelp and he certainly lived up to his 5-star billing! So thanks Yelp :)


As expected, the wedding for me (the groom) was a total blur and I hardly remember seeing Justin at all so I wasn't sure what he had captured. But when I got our photos I was blown away! He was definitely there and he was taking beautiful photos.


Booking was quick and easy and Justin delivers great value for the price. Thanks Justin and thanks Max photography! We have beautiful photos to remember a wonderful, fast, and furious night!

I used Max Photography for my wedding this past May, and I was blown away by his professionalism and the quality of his work. We met up with Justin the owner several times prior to the wedding where my fiance and I told him what we were looking for in regards to pictures. Justin and his assistant nailed it! He captured the vibe of our wedding, he was always very easy to reach and communicate with, his prices were extremely reasonable, and I received all of my pictures less than 3 weeks after the wedding. Do yourself a favor and go with Max Photography!

Max Photography! I just received the disc with all the photos from our wedding and scrolling through them had me laughing, crying and reliving the amazing experience all over again. Thank you for a collection so great it transports us back to that incredible day.

We had a great time working with Justin from the moment we met him, our meetings were like hanging out with an old friend. He really listened and responded to our personalities with work that fit us perfectly. For instance, we are like children when it comes to standing still for a formal picture. He guided us from the beginning in choosing a great shot list to include our family and friends, and then the day of made it quick, painless and fun even. We ended up with all the requisite formal shots plus we were having such a great time we squeezed in some really spectacular pictures of just the two of us.

The photo booth was, of course, a huge success. It is amazing that we get a USB of the super quality photos from the booth; no photos lost! And it had our logo on it! What? Super cool touch!

Great People to work with, Outstanding Work, Great Price, Happiness abounds.

When we have our super amazing 5 year anniversary party I hope Max Photography can be there too!

I have used Max Photography both professionally for photo booths for our church for the past 2 years as well as personally for my very own wedding... Justin always goes above and beyond. I receive the jump drive in the mail with all the pictures within 5 days of the event. For my wedding, my guests were taking both copies of the photo booth pictures. I told Justin this in passing and really thought nothing of it because my guests were so thrilled with the photo booth. Justin was kind enough to print up all the photos for me so me & my husband could enjoy them all. I wouldn't dream of having another photo booth company professionally or personally. Way to go Justin.

Justin is great! He did a wonderful job with our wedding photos and the photo booth was a hit as expected.


You can tell Justin just really enjoys his job and is extremely friendly, flexible, and communicative. On top of all that, he's very reasonably priced, especially if you get the wedding package with both the booth and wedding formals etc!


We were extremely pleased with his work and are still getting compliments on his photos. :D


Shruti and Jay

Great experience with Justin. He did a wonderful job with our engagement photo shoot and gave us exactly what we wanted. Working with him was a joy. He suggested a great location and captured beautiful shots. He made us feel super comfortable, we did not feel rushed at any point. I can definitely recommend Max Photography to anyone who wants professional results and being comfortable at the same time. Thank you!!!


Andy Peterson

We did our engagement photos with Justin at Butler Park. Great experience, great results. Highly recommend!


Peg G. (Mother-of-the-bride)

What can I say about Justin's team at Max Photography? These pics show exactly why I gave the 5 star rating. Working with Justin was truly a wonderful experience. Yes, he took the perfect formal portraits, but he also managed to capture the personalities of our family members in amazing candid shots. Justin is a generous and genuine artist. His team is top notch and his prices were WAY more reasonable than the other Austin photographers we considered.


Stacy J.

Max photography was amazing!! To start off, I met with Justin to discuss how to make my Pinterest wedding photos come true and he was open minded and made it come true. My family and friends RAVED about how polite they were and how awesome our photos were. I am extremely picky about photographers and Max Photography nailed it. =) I could not be happier.

Thanks again,

Happiest Bride Ever

Justin was extremely easy to work with! He was so flexible, on top of things in terms of communication and logistics, and the PERFECT Photo Booth for our prom! We would work with him again in a heartbeat!


Brenda Hughes

We used Justin for a photo booth at our end of year Crockett Theatre Banquet. We will use him again next year. The kids loved it!


Kelsey Moffatt

Justin was so easy to work with and helped us every step of the way. We used his Photo Booth for our wedding and it was a HUGE hit! I love how he prints out multiple copies of the picture for his clients and then provides a digital copy to look over! I also want to point out how considerate he is: Before our exit, he noticed that my husband and I had still not used the Photo Booth. So he came over to us, had it all set up, and had us take a photo together. Such a special moment!


Liz Allen

We had a great experience using the photo booth at our wedding! Photo quality was great.


Tiffani Grandjean

I'm so happy we chose Max Photography for our photo booth vendor! Justin's a professional and an awesome guy to work with. From making all the adjustments to our signature at the bottom of the strip (I changed my mind a lot!), to providing the best props and walking our guests through how the photo strip guest book worked, he did an amazing job! The photo quality was excellent and needless to say it was a huge hit. :) Thanks Justin!


Kryston Lopez-Pritchard

We used Max Photography's photo booth for our wedding and I'm so glad we did! Justin was super easy and flexible to work with. The props were awesome and the pictures came out great. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a photo booth for their wedding!


Caris Hurd

Mercury Hall

We hired Justin from Max Photography as the photo booth vendor for our wedding at Mercury Hall. It was a HUGE hit! We opted to add on a guestbook option where Justin would glue in a second copy of the photo strips and our guests could write us a note. The photos are hilarious, and we got to take printed photos home with us the night of the wedding as well as see them on Facebook the next day. He was also able to print our monogram/logo on the photo strips, which made it a very cool memento for our guests! Justin was super nice and we are very pleased with the product. There are a ton of photo booth companies popping up around town, but I'm very glad we went with someone as fabulous as Max Photography.


Brianne M.

Thank you so much for the awesome photo booth at our wedding at the Barr Mansion! Seriously, the photo booth was a huge hit and everyone absolutely loved it! Several people came up to us and said they had never even thought of a photo booth, but that it was the best wedding addition they have ever seen. The pictures turned out really great--lighting, printing, etc., and I think people really had fun with it! We also loved that you were able to work with us and have people hang a copy for us. You were incredibly helpful and personable, and we really did appreciate the interaction with both of us and all of our guests.Thanks again, Justin- you were great!


Ben G.

Awesome Wedding Idea. They did everything they promised exactly as they promised it without any problems or hiccups. Our guests were able to enjoy a fun experience and an adorable momento, and we have a great book of memories. Their prices are great and their service is top notch. I could not recommend more highly.


Gretchen Steiniger and Brett Williams

Winfield Inn

Our photo booth was amazing, I'm so glad we did it!! Everyone had a blast, and the photos made great favors. To be fair, a few of our older guests seemed a little confused by it, but our younger guests took it and ran with it. I also love how we got the photos so soon, it kind of made up for having to wait for the professional ones to come in. Working with Justin went smoothly from start to finish. I would definitely hire again, and I'm kind of looking for another reason too (it was so much fun!!).


And a side note - the free props were awesome!


Nicole T.

Justin is amazing and the photo booth was a HUGE success at our wedding in April. The props were great and the guests had such a great time with then. Bonus points for the guy attending the booth being such a great sport about my crazy uncle, who may or may not have taken his shirt off in there (VERY sorry about that, by the way!). When our time was up, my husband - the groom - realized there were still a few people who hadn't used the booth yet (including us!), and they had no problems staying an extra hour to oblige us, for a fee of course:) The pictures were posted within a week or two of the wedding and the disc was mailed shortly after. No issues whatsoever. Wish I could say the same about our wedding photographer, but that's for a different review;) Price was VERY reasonable and the photo strips were of much better quality that others I've seen. We used one copy for our guest book and the other copy went home with the guests, and they had no problems using our custom logo. 5 STARS ALL AROUND!


Laura M.

No matter how low key you try to keep a wedding, it's gonna be REALLY busy the day of. Max Photography did a great job setting up and running the booth the day of the wedding - I barely remember them asking me anything! In addition it was a total hit at the wedding. EVERYBODY wanted to get in there multiple times to take pictures. They even print out two strips - and in our case - we asked our guests to leave a strip for us in a guestbook with a sweet message... and the next day we had a wonderful guestbook to look through. PERFECT! I completely recommend using them for any event, especially a wedding. Smooth operators. Plus, every guest looks amazing with the lighting that they have set up in the photo booth. The booth is sturdy, the print quality is exceptional, and they props they bring really add some action to the photos.


Kasia T.

Max Photo Studio is a great choice for a photo booth. Not all photo booths are created equal. The lighting provided in their booth makes for very flattering images. On top of that, their rep was very responsive by email before the event and showed up on time and was ready to go with no problems. The props were fun too! Definitely recommend!
