About:

We are Jasmin Pichlyk & Matthew Mathieson, wedding and lifestyle photographers born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We fell in love with wedding photography in Montreal and we now live and work in the beautiful Mexican Riviera Maya, capturing beautiful stories of couples in love, families, friends and the incredible and inspiring world we are so lucky to live in.

We are One Hundred Percent inclusive. We firmly believe that companionship and marriage is the culmination and celebration of love between human beings, regardless of sex, gender, race, ethnicity, and religious or spiritual beliefs.

We are fluent in both English as well as French and we are currently working on developing our Spanish skills. Matt is a graduate of the AEC Commercial Photography program at Dawson College in Montreal, and Jasmin has completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology & Sociology, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours degree at the University of Manitoba. The combination of skills acquired from each individual schooling, plus more than 6 years working together as photographic partners, brings a fresh, artistic style that is always evolving.

The comfort of our clients is of utmost importance, ensuring that each couple feels at ease, and reassured that we are capturing the perfect angles to highlight their natural beauty on this special and meaningful day.

    Wow, where do I begin?! We got married on the sky deck at Azul Sensatori on January 21st, 2017 and Jasmin and Matt were absolutely phenomenal! We've seen many of our photos as they share teasers along the editing process which is amazing too. I just really can't say enough good things about them. They were incredibly accommodating and flexible, incredibly creative and fun to be around! They made everyone feel comfortable and were a wonderful addition to our wedding group! We feel so lucky to have had them capture the memories of the best day ever. They made it even more special. I was an hour behind schedule and they dealt with that with ease, I also totally forgot to provide the room number the guys were in and they figured that out too. To make a long story short, the resort is what makes using an outside photographer difficult, but jasmin and matt were totally understanding about all of that as well, I say without a single doubt that going with Jasmin and Matt no matter what resort you are getting married or what the circumstances is the best decision you can make on the most special day of your lives! Don't let the resorts bully you into using their people. It's too importan...” (read more)

    Pros: Communication, Efficiency, Style

    Cons: None!

    Our google search for a destination wedding photographer ended quite quickly after stumbling upon Jasmin & Matt's website. We loved their style of photography and decided to book them. Their contact with us right from the start was very efficient, thorough, and made planning a destination wedding much less stressful. They were the ONLY thing we weren't doubtful about in regards to a destination wedding. Come wedding day, they arrived as scheduled and began shooting. Jasmin & Matt are very very organized and, once again, efficient (but yet flexible for last minute timeline tweeks - which we had a few). They remembered everything we wanted to get captured on camera and easily had the time to do so, as well as the several beautiful candid moments. When it came down to the newly wed photos (which my husband and I are pretty awkward models) Jasmin & Matt directed us and were patient with us. In return, we have the most amazing newly wed photos I could have ever imagined. These two are very friendly and professional and definitely a joy to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer and am patiently waiting for a reason to hang out with th...” (read more)

    Pros: This box isn't big enough! They are fabulous!

    Cons: Nada!

    Jasmin and Matt are our photography heroes! Having them (thankfully) agree to be such a big part of our wedding day was not only one of the easiest decisions we made during the planning process, but it proved to be one of things we talk most about! The fact that they took a break from the heat in Mexico to join in our celebration and shoot a fall time Manitoba wedding was so appreciated! The beautiful memories they helped us create speak to their abilities behind the camera and their incredible people skills. Ryan and I are very camera shy, and that’s putting it lightly, but Jasmin and Matt made us feel so at ease while we got ready to walk down the aisle, all from me primping during the day to the boys hamming it up in their tuxedos, and their attention lasted all the way through to the last dance! Looking at our photos, and seeing the amazing teaser shots on Instagram, had us completely speechless with how intimate and personal the images were, it was really like Ryan and I were in our own little world! Their keen attention to detail- adjusting a necklace here, straightening a tie there- and willingness to try some new things while having spot on suggestions to create our magi...” (read more)

    To be completely candid, I actually know Matt and Jasmin so I knew that they were going to be great. That being said, I just have to praise the way they went above and beyond to capture our special day. We were married in Runaway Bay, Jamaica this past June. My favorite pictures are their candid photos that capture all of the emotions of the day. I also have to say they are both very kind, personable and professional. Both Jasmin and Matt will make you feel comfortable during the photo sessions. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to have wedding photos that you love. They are what you have after the special day is long past and I hope to show them to children and grandchildren one day. You will not go wrong to entrust these two wonderful people with your special day!” (read more)

    Pros: Everything (see review above)

    Cons: Honestly, none. And that's coming from someone that is usually hypercritical.

    If we could go back in time, we would absolutely choose to have Jasmin and Matt as our wedding photographers again. Without hesitation. They are talented, fun and kind-hearted people.Generally, when you think about wedding photography, you expect the impact to be post-wedding, when your photos serve as memories of your special day. Jasmin and Matt definitely had that impact – our pictures are wonderful! But, it goes beyond that. They had a huge impact on the wedding day itself. They were so easy to talk to and made us laugh so much that the stress of the day just disappeared. They were so organized, which made us feel like we could take a step back and just enjoy the day. They also fit in so well with our family and friends that everyone was begging them to stay once they were off the clock. Leading up to the wedding, we were impressed. We were admittedly a bit stressed out because the photographer that we were going to bring down from back home had to back out due to the Zika virus. We felt like we had minimal time to find someone else, and availability and pricing were so difficult that close to the wedding. Jasmin and Matt were very accommodating. They were extremely res...” (read more)

    Hiring Jasmin and Matt was the best decision we made for our destination wedding! Not only were they easy to communicate with prior to the wedding, they were extremely organized, were easy going, and incredibly talented. They really did compliment one another in the photography sessions with attention to detail, vision, enthusiasm, and passion! These two made our day run very smoothly helping organize our wild bunch for pictures and they really captured the best memories of our day! We are so happy with our wedding pictures and would recommend these two for anyone travelling to Mexico looking for photographers!” (read more)

    Joanne and I were very pleased with our decision in choosing Matt and Jasmin Photography. It was a scary thing to do hiring someone in a different country, not knowing them and paying for service before receiving the pictures. However, we trusted our intuition in choosing Jasmin and Matt over the competition. From the beginning the communication was excellent. They felt it was important to know us as individuals as well as a couple.They were genuinely interested in what our wishes were and the understanding of the uniqueness of our wedding. They fit right in with our group and captured all of our special moments. We were very impressed with their service.A very nice surprise was the highlights and sneak peeks! Also, they put together a thoughtful and beautiful story to go along with our wedding pictures that captured the special day.I do not know of other photographers who put in that much care and energy into their work. Very lovely couple and you will not be disappointed to work with them. Thank you again Jasmin and Matt and many blessings!” (read more)

    Pros: Fantastic ideas

    Cons: "

    We found Jasmin and Matt through looking on trip advisor after reading that the photographer in the hotel was ok . We didn’t want someone ok we wanted the best and after reading many reviews on this couple we decided to go ahead with booking them . Such a friendly couple !!! They answered our emails straight away and left no stone unturned , putting our mind at rest and leaving us feeling excited. We spoke to them on Skype something we’ve never done before (they even helped us set this up ). On the day they turned up early as promised and every single minute detail was scrutinized . Whether my jewellery was facing the right way , if there were plugs on show in the hotel , everything had to be perfect. The photographs we have seen are amazing , we had so much fun and these guys contributed towards that . They were fun to work with , we even invited them to stay for our celebrations ( Matt was caught taking a few cheeky pictures , when he was ‘off duty’ but he said he just has a love for the camera and natural photography . I feel we have made lifelong friends with Jasmin and Matt and will definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of making their wedding last forever , as it do...” (read more)

    Pros: Professional, fun, amazing finished product!

    Our wedding was a wonderful roller coaster ride which we’ll cherish forever. Throughout it all Jasmin & Matt were the consummate professionals being patient with our idiosyncrasies and capturing all the chaos in its glory. They were able to capture not just images, but also the emotions of our most cherished moments. I was also lucky enough to have Matt as a co-conspirator which allowed him to capture my surprise proposal & led to an amazing engagement shoot! The pictures turned out amazing & we are so grateful they were able to be a part of our special day. We would highly recommend their services to any other couples!” (read more)

    Chad and I found Jasmin and Matt by fluke online. From the very beginning of our communication with them, they were incredibly responsive and very accommodating with all of our questions and concerns. Not only did they provide us with stunning photos of our wedding that we just can't get enough of, they made the entire process exceptionally smooth and enjoyable. Their presence put us at ease in front of the camera and allowed us to simply have fun with each other. We feel very lucky to have found such honest and kind people to work with. It was beyond a pleasure doing business with them and we can't wait to return to Mexico and catch up over a margarita and perogies!! ” (read more)

    3 Reasons you NEED Jasmin & Matt to be your Photographer

    Pros: Amazing quality, creative, great price, organized, fun

    For those of you that love to skim read, I will start by getting straight to the facts. Here are the top 3 reasons why you NEED Jasmin and Matt as your destination photographers: 1. They are extraordinarily prompt - for someone like me that sits and watches the computer in anticipation of a reply, this was a major win [not to mention, much easier on the eyes]. I was never more than an afternoon without a response [and believe me, I asked a lot of questions]. 2. They are tremendously organized - from the first point of contact to the actual shoot you will appreciate their organization. Jasmin has the memory of an elephant [for those that don't know what I'm talking about, this is a great thing!]. She remembered practically every photo example I shared with them on Pinterest and through email. This was important to me since I had a lot of subtle details I wanted to capture that has tremendous meaning to me. 3. They are wonderfully fun - I don't know about you, but this one matters to me a lot. There is nothing worse than an awkward photo shoot with someone mundane and rigid [you are spending your entire wedding day with these people]. Both Jasmin and Matt are q...” (read more)

    Jasmin & Matt were absolutely perfect wedding photographers. As a hobby-photographer myself, I took my time in choosing the right photographers for our small town wedding. They arrived in good time, were very prepared for both indoor and outdoor photography, and they both have really great personalities to work with. They have perfect depth to their photos and are able to capture those happy candid moments. Choosing Jasmin and Matt to capture our special day was the best decision we could have made! <3 ” (read more)

    Pros: Stunning photos, fun and caring people, quick and easy communication

    We're so lucky to have had Jasmin and Matt photograph our wedding! They made the whole process so easy and left us with stunning photographs that bring us back to the sights, tastes ands emotions of our wedding day.Jasmin and Matt gave us so many different picutres to choose from. You can follow the story of our wedding day (from getting dressed with the bridal party, to the ceremony, to the reception and more) feel the ocean spray crashing over the rocks, taste our lobster dinner, smell our wedding cake (Mexican vanilla!) and join the YMCA dance through our photographs. They captured every moment in great detail in candid shots, but were totally open to some silly staged shots too. They included all the guests and even captured certain moments that my husband and I missed! It's wonderful to be able to look back at things you didn't even realize were happening! Weddings go by so fast, we're lucky they knew where to be and what to capture!!Some of my favourite photographs were some of the most unexpected: our bridal party hanging out in a power outage, the girls having a champagne toast, and family members having a spontaneous group hug-dance at the end of the night.

    We had our destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera of January of this year.  After countless hours of searching the web, reading reviews and comparing prices we decided to book our wedding photos with Jasmin and Matt Photography. With all the decisions we had made for our destination wedding, booking with these two very talented photographers was by far the best decision we made.  Amazingly, we found out they born and raised in our home town which made us even more excited to meet them.  Throughout our countless emails, Jasmin and Matt were a pleasure to get to know.  They really took the time to get to know us and told us exactly who they were.  I truly felt a bond over our emails back and forth, and felt so at ease with our decision to use them.  Our wedding day was incredible, Jasmin and Matt did an unreal job and we could not be more impressed with everything they did for us that day.  Our guest are still talking about how awesome our photographers were and I could not agree more. Our pictures are absolutely stunning, they really captured the warm, cozy, love feeling in there pictures of us. Our "First Look" photos are my favorite! I...” (read more)

    My experience with Jasmin & Matt was top notch, from first contact through the end, if you want to even call it an "end",  because we've remained in contact with them via Facebook since our wedding.  Not only did they deliver beautiful photos of our day, but they are just really good, fun people that we've kept up with online as well.  The day of our wedding was fabulous: Jasmin & Matt got there ahead of schedule, and while I had given them a list of shots we wanted, they were also supplying their own creative ideas to capture the true heart of our day. Everyone at our wedding loved them: they are very open, happy people, and that translated to our pictures and the general feeling of our wedding & reception. We love our pictures so much, and spend a lot of time looking at them, even months later! We get so many compliments on them, and it’s all because of Jasmin & Matt. We are so happy to have worked with them, because they made everything easy and stress-free. They contributed more than they know to what has been one of the best days of our lives, and we can’t thank them enough for that!” (read more)

    Pros: Speaking perfect English because we got married in Mexico. Personable.

    From the very beginning Matt and Jasmin were awesome. Such great communication, and payed so much attantion to detail. It was important to them what was important to Mike and I. Our pictures turned out more beautiful and amazing then I imagined. I loved that they requested a list of all the family members we wanted pictures with. This way on the day it was well organized and no one was missed. They just called out each persons name for each photo and within 15 mins the family photos were complete. They did this as well for all bridal party shots. Asked us in advance what is important etc. Advice to all brides- Make sure you are ready before they come. I felt like I took my time that day because I did not want to be ready to early but this just lead to us being very rushed for photos. Not the photographers fault but my own. I would have liked to get more bridal shots of me but I was just to late getting in my dress. I thought I was super organized but it didnt end up that way the day of wedding. All in all I highly reccommend Jasmin and Matt. We even made friends with them and invited them to stay for the entire reception to have fun and party. ” (read more)

    Pros: Professional, easy to talk to, GREAT communication before the day, on the day and afterwards!

    Cons: The newlywed session didn't have any of us looking at the camera- LOTS of kissing ones (not exactly a con, but I would've asked for more seeing our faces along with the romantic ones)

    Jasmin and Matt were so great to work with! Their laid back style and go-with-the-flow personalities did not take away from their professionalism! I was lucky to find them when my original photographer from home was no longer able to come to the wedding! Even though the weather in Playa del Carmen was overcast and threatening to rain the whole day, they captured great photos! I thought one of the best advantages was that Jasmin and Matt were willing to wait til the very last minute of our session for us to decide if we wanted them to stay longer. It took the pressure off of us to have to decide before hand exactly how many hours we wanted. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a destination wedding photographer in the Riviera Maya!” (read more)

    We're so happy we found Jasmin & Matt for our destination wedding late 2015! The whole experience was absolutely excellent and I can't imagine a better duo to capture our once-in-a-lifetime moments. We're not locals to Playa del Carmen, and have never been to the area and we wanted a fun, but laid-back beach wedding. Their portfolio from past weddings looked so alive, that I could feel the fun and laughs emanating from the photos. I knew this was what I wanted to remember our wedding by, and sure enough, they delivered! Working with Jasmin from the beginning was such a breeze. She's very responsive and made me feel like photography was the last thing I needed to worry about because she's "got my back". Jasmin & Matt are very flexible, and roll with the punches while taking advantage of the somewhat unpredictable weather. Their ideas for newly creatives were great, and came out natural and breathtaking. They work well together and are fun to be around. They also took the time to provide great suggestions for local dining and entertainment, which helped us explore the area more effectively. They provided great vendor suggestions that made our wedding planning a s...” (read more)

    Jasmin & Matt, We just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a fantastic job with our wedding photos. We are so impressed with them. You really captured the day! You both take such beautiful photos. We could not have asked for better wedding photographers. Not only are you both very talented, but lovely people to be around as well  You put us both at ease and we felt so relaxed and happy in front of the camera, it really shows in the photos. All our family and friends have commented on how stunning the photos are and how great it is that we received them so quickly. Thank you so so much! Love Tiffany & Sean     ” (read more)

    Pros: Detail, creativity, obsession of their craft!

    Cons: We only get to get married once!

    I've looked through our photos probably 30 times by now and they continue to put the biggest, warmest smile on my face! The detail is, for a lack of a better word, insane!! To work with two people who are willing to literally get elbow deep in the ocean with you to get some of the amazing shots they did was such a cool experience! And yes, there are two cameras capturing two different but equally important angles of EVERY shot!! They are truly dedicated to their work and wow does it show! We've said it before, but we will never stop bragging about these two! We're so happy they were there to capture our day and sincerely hope countless others can have the same experience! Thanks again Jas & Matt, you guys are the best ♡” (read more)
