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.

Pros: flexible packages, many photos, photo quality, professional, value for money
We got married in January 2017 and were (and are) so pleased with the photos from Jasmin and Matt. The photos are amazing. They captured lots of candid moments and also gave us the direction and pointers we needed. I am so happy with the pictures. I am impressed with how many photos we got in our package, and they are so crisp, well lit, and beautiful. I also have to say that the price is right for two professionals, and that's before I saw just how many beautiful shots we would get! We picked Jasmin and Matt after a quick google search. We knew we weren't crazy about the package that came with our hotel (Iberostar Quetzal) but honestly I wasn't totally sure what we did want instead! Well, our google search landed us on Jasmin and Matt and we loved the look of their work. I would also add that Jasmin and Matt's pricing is super competitive, so that even with the vendor penalty and paying for them to enter the resort, we still paid about the same as the package we considered from the resort but got a lot more time and photos (and better pics). Leading up to the wedding, Jasmin and Matt were very professional, timely, and easy to work with. We didn't have a lot of requests at first so I was thankful that Jasmin and Matt asked the right questions so they would need to know to do a great job. Our wedding was completely a no stress and enjoyable day, and that was due to a lot of great vendors and that includes Jasmin and Matt. We had 50 people at our wedding, and wanted pictures of combinations of damn near everyone. No actually, everyone. It was pretty impressive to see Jasmin and Matt efficiently get all the shots we wanted of our family and friends so we could do our wedding party pics. Lots of our guests commented on how great they were to work with. And they worked super hard (including in a super hot and humid rock formation haha) all day, it did not go unnoticed! Overall we are so pleased with the photos, and glad we got to work with this professional (and simultaneously funny, easy going, and Canadian) photography duo.

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 important to leave to chance. Go with your gut and we couldn't be more pleased we went with ours and chose Jasmin and Matt! Thank you guys so much for making our special day even more special! You guys rock! :)

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 them for the day while they capture more of our special moments!

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 magical storybook of images, Jasmin and Matt couldn’t go wrong.   Thank you again for being so responsive to the neurotic bride’s emails, keeping the mood light and fun throughout the day and creating a beautiful story with us that we’ll cherish forever. We can’t wait to share your name with future brides and grooms (it’s kind of the first thing we ask when we find out people are getting married…do you have a photographer yet?!) and hopefully getting the chance to work with you for an upcoming anniversary…maybe this time we’ll come to you in Mexico!

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!
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 responsive, which helped us get everything sorted out quickly. They also put together a special price for Canadian guests to assist us with the poor Canadian dollar at the time. Their customer service was bar none in our opinion. We felt pretty comfortable after the wedding that our photos were going to be great, because any time we thought – oh, hey, this is a good photo opportunity – there they were in the background capturing it. But now that we have all the photos, we can confidently say they are exceptional. Jasmin and Matt have a knack for capturing the joy people experience at a wedding and the love that two people have for each other. Everyone from our group has been raving about the photos non-stop. We are so thankful to have these photos to remember our amazing week in Mexico.  We enjoyed getting to know Jasmin and Matt at the wedding so much, that before leaving Mexico we went out with them for food and a night on the town in Playa del Carmen. They are quite simply nice and down to earth people and we are lucky to now call them our friends. We would absolutely recommend having Jasmin and Matt as your wedding photographers, and if you have any specific questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us either through this review, or through Jasmin and Matt who can pass along our e-mail.

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!
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!

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 does with their amazing work. Well done Jasmin and Matt and thank you for everything xxxxx

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!

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!!
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 quite the contrary. They are fun, loveable, free spirited and incredibly creative. Our time with them felt like time spent with friends [I was genuine sad to see them leave at the end of the night].   Now for a more elaborate review... I'm not sure where to begin expressing my gratitude and satisfaction with Jasmin and Matt. I had originally booked with the hotel photographer for our wedding photos. I found myself obsessing over their website and trying to convince myself that the photos 'weren't that bad' ... let alone trying to convince myself that I liked their style. I was deterred from searching outside the resort for a photographer due to an extensive vendor fee ($800 USD) charged by the resort. I finally had enough and decided to listen to my gut. I searched the wen for Cancun Wedding Photographers and every other possible variation of the phrase. I took my time to review all the website and decided on a top three. I then emailed each of my top three choices and was beyond ecstatic when I got an email response almost right away from Jasmin and Matt. It didn't take long for me to realize that the $800 outside vendor fee I struggled with would be worth it. Not only did Jasmin and Matt offer more for less (for instance, two shooters, longer hours, and a creative session with the bride and groom) they were forthcoming and easy to communicate with. I very much appreciated this. Jasmine took the time to write extensive emails back and forth. She reassured me that it was common for resorts to charge the vendor fee and, although unfortunate, it would be worth it. I put my faith in them. In hind sight, I'm sure glad I did!! The second I cancelled the resort photographer and put down a deposit with Jasmin and Matt, I felt relief. I stopped obsessing over the resort website that display [in my opinion] sub par photos, and began to get uber excited about what I saw on Jasmin and Matts website. My imagination started to run wild with ideas and I began to share my example photos with the. Not once did they make me feel like I was being intrusive or overbearing. They embraced my ideas, encouraged creativity, and made me feel comfortable with the whole experience. I'm sure you've got the impression by now, but if you haven't, photos mean a great deal to me. If someone told me there is only one things I could have on my wedding day, I would choose a great photographer.   On our wedding day Jasmin and Matt were on time and began shooting immediately. Together we created a schedule beforehand and they diligently kept to it. The couples creative session was amazing [this occurred once we were done with the bridal party photos]. I was thrilled with their ideas and direction. My husband is not one to love having his picture taken and somehow Jasmin and Matt made the whole experience enjoyable. We had a lot of laughs during the shoot.   Dinner ran late which delayed the first dance, as well as the garter and bouquet toss. Without missing a beat Matt offered to stay longer (for a change) in order to capture these important moments. I was so grateful for his offer and the fact they were willing to work after hours in order to make sure I had memories of our special moments. The extra time lead to some highly hilarious photos [drunken bridesmaids anyone?]; the idea came from Matt which had me giddy with excitement [this is SO my style of pictures]. I was beyond impressed with their creativity and ability to work alongside one another; their communication with one another is admirable.   We also scheduled a Trash the Dress session at the Cenote Azul. I have one word: WOW. The location was breathtaking. There was a serene peacefulness that set the mood. My husband and I agreed that this was one of our favorite days on the trip. It felt like a private excursion without the hustle and bustle. I cannot wait to see the pictures from this session. We got to catch a glimpse of a few shots straight out of camera and I was like a 13 year old girl screaming with excitement.   I will, without a doubt, use Jasmin and Mat for photography again. Saying I highly recommend them is an understatement. They are fantastic people, well priced, and outstanding quality. You will not be disappointed [unless you don't book with them - then you will be].   Love: Amber and Terance

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

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. Jasmin and Matt caught moments on film we didn't even realize were special.

These two are really great people. Communication was quick and easy and they understook what we were looking for. They knew what they were doing and they were flexible and patient with our requests (so many family photos, group shots, etc.) We received a huge selection of edited photographs shortly afterwards and i'm happy to say that they currently line our walls, sit on our shelves, and are portrayed in our wedding albums.

Jasmin's and Matt's photographs speak for themselves. Awesome photographs. Great people. One less thing to worry about when planning your wedding. THANK YOU SO MUCH JASMIN AND MATT!
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 can't stop smiling every time I look at them.  Even months after the wedding Jasmin and Matt still stay in contact with us. They are both very professional, genuine, talented, straight up good people and that's why you should pick them as your destination photographers. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.    Thanks again for everything you have done for us.   All Our Love,   Jannet & Evan

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!

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.

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!

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 success!

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

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 ♡
