    Hello,

    We would love to introduce ourselves. We are Justin & Michelle Stevens. We own an award winning wedding photography studio just outside of Portland Oregon.

    Michelle studied photography in college, shot her first wedding at age 17 and opened her first studio at age 18. Justin has been a professional photographer for 7 years. Our style is romantic and elegant with a fashion influence.

    We love weddings! We have covered multiple destination weddings from Seattle to Mexico.

    Feel free to browse our website and blog to get a feel about what we love to do. Also, be sure to friend us on Facebook!

      I thought I would include our package info and the details of our destination wedding coverage on here as well. :) All of our destination couples receive:

      Two photographers (myself and my husband Justin, so both pro photographers not a photographer and assistant)
      Rehearsal dinner coverage the night before the wedding
      Unlimited time coverage on the wedding day
      Optional "Day After" or TTD shoot
      Unlimited locations on the wedding day
      Unlimited images taken (you will have between 800-1200 typically)
      Wedding digital negatives (high res) plus a bonus disk for each set of parents
      Wedding Montage DVD
      Website ordering for 1 year
      Shipping of your wedding disks
      Airfare and three nights lodging for the two of us
      Mexican work visa

      Justin and I are the only two photographers, and shoot all of our weddings together, so the quality of work that you see on our site is what you will receive. :) On your wedding day, Justin will shoot the guys getting ready and I will be with the girls so you don't miss anything. We don't limit the number of locations we go to, so if you want to wander around Puerto Morlos, Playa, Cancun, Cabo or wherever you would like, we can do that. Although we go over everything you want ahead of time, we can do a site walk with you the day before the wedding to determine any special places you would like shots.

      Regarding the digital negatives, they are not "out of the camera" images. Each image is hand color corrected and cropped and you will have many images that have also had a special finishing added as well as black & white images. You'll receive your Montage DVD too when receive your disk, which is a slideshow set to music with titles, that you can play in your dvd player. It is a great way to show friends and family your best 200 or so images without going through hundreds of photos. Both disks come in a beautiful black case.

      For the optional "Day After" or Trash the Dress shoot, we can go anywhere you would like! You can either dress up in your wedding clothes again or go more casual. We can make is a TTD session (i.e., you are likely to end up in the water!) or not, just as you choose. Some options for the TTD location for the Riviera Maya are the resort of course, Tulum, downtown Playa or Cancun, or the cenotes. We could also go across to Cozumel and do some fun stuff with scooters or jeeps, or head up to Isla Mujeres. Whatever you would like to do!

      We also offer albums that you can add to your package. Almost all of our albums come with forty pages and there is no limit to the amount of images that you can include. I personally custom design each of our albums. You will receive a pdf of an album concept that I have created on the disk with your digital negatives. From there, we can redesign pages and add or remove photos until you have the perfect design.

      We also include the Mexican work visa with all of our packages. This is very important if you are bringing in your photographer from outside Mexico. We have heard horror stories about photographers having their gear confiscated at customs. The visa insures that both us and our gear arrive safely at the resort.

      A couple of other quick notes. We do use all pro Nikon cameras and lenses, and bring backup gear. We bring off camera lighting so we are able to create some of the beautiful lighting effects you see. Regarding the safety of your images during travel, we shoot on small memory cards (4 gig) so all your photos are spread over numerous cards. We have a portable hard drive backup device that we use to backup each card as it comes out of the camera during your wedding. That way, you files are double backed up, even during the event. After the wedding, we remotely upload all of your images to online storage so in the event that something should happen to the cards, our laptop, AND the hard drive backup, your wedding images are secure.

      Regarding package price, please shoot me an email and I will give you all our pricing info. We have special rates for (our) off season, which is November through April. :) We also offer discounts off the package if you and another bride (or more!) share us over two consecutive weekends or in the same week.

      My email is michelle@artistiquephotographie.com

      Please feel free to email or ask any questions at all!

      Michelle

        Your photos are beautiful! I have been scouring photog websites for the last 2 days and was starting to gloss over, until I hit yours. :-) Nice work!

              Just wanted to point out that this was our wedding photographed above,and that Michelle and Justin were fabulous! They are so detail oriented, thoughtful & fun! They both really wanted to understand what we wanted and also were super helpful before, during and after the events. They really knew how to blend in as a part of the party too! We were so pleased with the beautiful photos and truly very blessed to have had these two as a part of our special day. THANKS!!!!

                  Here is Roxy and John's wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace! We LOVE shooting there! We snuck into the French Restaurant during the day when they were closed and got some amazing shots. There are also some beautiful night places to shoot too. I will be posting more individual shots later that didn't go into the album (there were SO many!) If you click on the first image, it will pop up bigger, then you can scroll through them all.

                  Enjoy! :)
