Hi, my name is Max, and at Your story by Max I lead a team of Spokane Wedding Videographers. We strive to capture all the love, joy, and emotions of your wedding day and produce a beautiful wedding film that you’ll enjoy watching for a lifetime! A wedding film you’ll be excited to share with friends and relatives, a film you’ll want to watch each and every anniversary, a wedding video you will share with your children, grandchildren, and future generations!
I don’t know how or when I fell in love with capturing weddings but I do know why… They are beautiful! I’m really not an emotional person, but I LOVE the love and emotions that are shared during weddings. It’s an honor to be able to capture such a special day and then be able to share it and re-live it. When my team of Spokane wedding videographers say that we would love to be a part of your wedding day, we really mean it!
We would love to hear from you, talk about the wedding video we can create for you, and answer any questions you may have. You can write us a messages by clicking here, or call us at 509-230-0228.
Thank you and we look forward to speaking with you!
Max and his team are as everyone described. They are so professional, respectful and genuinely kind! They look super sharp and Max goes out of his way to ensure that everything goes well. His phenomenal work speaks for itself, each video he's made shows people's stories beautifully and uniquely and connecting with viewers emotionally as well. The best part of this video team is that not only do they come across as a talented and amazing team but the videos they produce are stunning as well!
From the time we first met up to sign the contract, Max was very kind and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and were getting everything we wanted for our wedding video. On the day of our wedding, He showed up with his team dressed well, and exceeded our expectations. He went out of his way to make sure we received quality footage by even having more cameras and crew members than we expected.
Max and his crew videotaped our wedding and they were absolutely amazing!! Everyone was dressed up, professional, and had a great attitude. They went above and beyond providing quality service and making us feel comfortable. Highly recommend!!
Totally top notch videography and awesome personality! I have worked with Max on many occasions and its always memorable and fun working with him. In my 8 years of being in the wedding industry I have not seen any other videographer who is as knowledgeable and as professional as Max from YSBM. He even has his own YouTube channel! He is not your typical uncle Bob with a camera who's always obstructing your view. Oh how I hate uncle Bob! Doesn't everyone? Weddings are unique events that require a lot of skills and the proper tools - and you can be sure that Max has both. Can you imagine your videographer miss the first kiss because he is changing his batteries? Yeah and I've seen it happen! I cant believe someone would hire their brothers friends cousins uncle with a camera to captures one of life's most important event! OK OK Calm down, I may have just went a bit- but seriously, Max is just a great guy with the right tools and experience to capture your wedding story in a beautiful way. A story you could relive every time you view it.
It was a pleasure to work with Max and his team at weddings. Studio does great work in video and photography. If you're looking for a high quality service, these guys will make it happen.
Incredibly talented videographer! All the couples who worked with him are so lucky to have Max capture the special moments of their Wedding day! He is professional in every way: from his appearance - to the way he delivers the final product. It was a joy to work with Max: he is very positive, hardworking and very kind. I have worked with so many videographers in the past, and Max and his team were the best to work with! He is always aware and extremely respectful of a photographer he is working along the side with. He knows his gear very well, he is calm and always has a sincere smile on his face while working with couples. It makes the creating process so easy and stress-free. I highly recommend to check out his stunning work and contact him for any occasion! FIVE STARS!!!
Great quality work on our wedding video, highly recommend. Thanks!
There is not much to say! I simply can not imagine going with anyone else! Max has proven his professional skills to us over and over again. I'm simply amazed of the technology this company has and the creativity to make amazing things from simple things. Max, thank you so very much for every project you have done for us. We HIGHLY recommend you and only happy to share your name with any family member or a friend knowing they will be only satisfied and well taken care of. Many thanks!
Max photographed my husband and I's wedding and our one year anniversary. He did an awesome job and we were very happy with it. Super flexible with our schedule and was really creative and passionate about his work to get us the best shots possible! I would definitely recommend him!
We are well pleased with wedding video recording Max made for us. Definately high-quality stuff!! Max is easy and fun to work with and goes over expectations. 5 STARS!
Unlike many Wedding Photographers/Filmmakers “about me” sections, I can’t say that I filmed my first video at the age of two or three, or held a camera in my hands as a young kid. In fact, I didn’t even use a decent camera until after I got married to my beautiful wife Alena. She is the one who inspired me to start diving into photography and I started to soak up everything and anything that I could with my newfound passion.
Alena’s had enjoyed photography for quite a few years by the time we started dating, and had even shot a few weddings. Within a few months of picking up my first real camera, I was second shooting a wedding with the Photographer who shot ours. About another month or so after that, Alena & I shot our first wedding together and everything took off from there!
A few years went by and we could officially call ourselves ” Wedding Photographers” Shooting 25+ weddings a year with all the right proper equipment and creating beautiful and unique photographs and albums for our clients. On Christmas morning one of our cameras with a few other pieces of gear were stolen. We tried our very best to stay positive and ended up buying a new camera shortly after that because we needed the gear to shoot. That camera was the 5D markII which had a new feature that allowed you to shoot HD video.
For the next few years I played with that feature more and more, and I created different short videos for fun and to help out others. The more I learned about shooting and editing videos the more I enjoyed it, until one day I shot my first wedding. From that point on I knew that’s what I wanted to be doing. Even though I enjoyed photography, The level of emotions and love that I could capture with film was much greater.
It’s like everything fell into place perfectly! At the time we were starting to consider closing/changing our photography business to allow my wife to focus on our two little kiddos. It was getting tough having her sitting behind the computer screen most of each day and both of us being gone almost every weekend during the wedding season. We finished off the wedding season and afterwards “Max Alena Photography” was re-branded into “Your Story by Max” with a focus on wedding films.
A few years since, I lead a team of Spokane Wedding Videographers and we focus solely on creating the best, most emotional, story driven wedding films that we can. We love being able to capture moving images and audio such as the first look the bride and groom share. mixed with personal vows and toasts and preserving them forever!
