My name is actually Marianne, but Max was a nickname from school which has always stuck. I am a quirky European/South-African Hybrid that has lived in England for over 20 years. 

I am based in Nottingham, but this photographer has a passport, and will travel! I have already photographed weddings all over, from London to the Netherlands.

I could go on about what a friendly, professional and unobtrusive photographer I am (which are all true!) but the fact is, I love Weddings. (I can watch hundreds of "Say Yes to the Dress" episodes back to back and never be bored!) 

I love being creative. I love art. I love meeting people (My husband Jay cringes when I strike up conversation with the next best stranger......) and I love telling visual stories. Since developing photographs in a darkroom at 18, my passion for photography has never faltered in 21 years. 

To me, Photography is a visual diary, a collection of images that make up our biographies and leave evidence to future generations of our legacy. 

If there were 3 items I could save from my house in a fire, it would be my family (including my two cats), my camera bag and my photographs. 

The rest is all stuff. 

As your wedding photographer, I go beyond just "capturing moments". I pride myself in being MORE than just the photographer...


To mention a few: I help sew on buttons, find safety pins, pour Prosecco, pass on messages, reassure the groom that the bride is on her way and give hugs freely to nervous brides and tearful mums. And the best part of my job is that I get to share the intimate moments of your wedding day with you and I often come away from your wedding having made new friends! 

Feel free to browse my website and check to see if your date is available. 

I look forward to meeting you!
