My name is Max Surikov. I own Maxim Photo Studio and this is my Cincinnati Wedding Photographer Blog. My clients commission me to create timeless, elegant, and unique wedding day images.
I’ve been happily married for 18 years and have two great 15 & 14 YO boys. In my “prior life” I played competitive table tennis, won in an amateur bodybuilding contest, and passed the CPA exam.
I grew up in Russia and moved to US in 1981. I went to college and received a degree in accounting. However after a decade of corporate consulting I decided to make a career change to pursue photography full time and received a degree in Photography from New York Institute of Photography.
In 2005 I started Maxim Photo Studio. The goal of Maxim Photo Studio has always been to provide exceptional wedding photography as well as amazing customer experience while maintaining a great work/life balance for my family. Since I lead every wedding photography, I limit the number of wedding commissions to about 35-40 each year.
Over the past 12 years, Maxim Photo Studio has become one of the most trusted and award winning wedding photography studios serving Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus, and destination locations. During this time, the Studio has captured over 400 weddings and 500 engagements. The Studio specializes in only Weddings, Engagements, and Photo Booths. We have been voted as the The Knot Best of Cincinnati Wedding Photographers for 7 consecutive years and were inducted into the Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame in 2015.
