M and J photographery

Recommended Posts

We just got back from our wedding in April and we used M and J photography as our wedding photographer! If you are looking for great service and value you should contact them! Micheal and Jennifer were gave standout service from the beginning when we booked them! I know how scary it can be to find vendors and not everyone has the budget for some of these photographers, they provided a great pictures and were professional for a really great price!

We agree,


Michael and Jenniferâ€s photographed us on our wedding day last April, covering the “brideâ€s getting ready sessionâ€, a photo session of the bride and groom, together and with our families, and the ceremony. We then had a “trash the dress†session the day after the wedding. They were very professional from day one. They not only listened but also gave us tips and suggestions, which obviously helps when you have a lot of other things to worry about when organizing your wedding. As the weeks passed, they would keep constant contact with us, sending us friendly emails (being in regular contact with them gave us a lot of peace of mind knowing they were taking their job seriously). We met them once in Playa del Carmen several months before our wedding day, and they were very professional about it. They studied the church and its lighting conditions and checked the sunset schedule for our wedding day to know how much light they would get during our ceremony. Several days before our wedding day they sent us an email with a list of things to keep in mind during the photo session (small but important things that you would not think about; like having the room cleaned early in the morning, etc). They volunteered to start their work earlier than requested in order to cover the getting ready session from the start, even when that meant that they would work additional time (without charging for it), and while Jennifer took pictures of the bride, Michael went out to study different areas of the hotel to find the best place to shoot the couple and family pictures (think about it, you are getting two photographers, so there is a lot of room for getting things right). They blended in perfectly with the family. Before getting to the church, they took us on their car to the beach to get some nice photos on the sand, and then jumped in the wedding car to capture the moment as the bride was being driven to the church. They dressed professionally for the occasion and were very conscious of not overwhelming us or the priest while they took the pictures. They then jumped in the car with us as we were driven from the church to the reception, to capture the “just married†moment. The next day, for the “trash the dress†session (scheduled for 4:30 pm) they surprised us with a better location (there was a lot of seaweed on the beach in Playa del Carmen and we had just no idea where to go for the photo sessions). Without us asking, they took the task of driving around the Mayan Riviera during the morning to find the right spot for the photo session. They explained to us how to get there and it was worth it. The place they found was incredible. They gave us a lot of ideas for the “trash the dress†session and made the experience quite enjoyable. Four days after our wedding day, they sent us a web link with their favorite shots; a link which could be shared with family and friends. This was a great thing to have during our honeymoon. Finally, they kept in constant contact while they were working on the editing and finally sent us the photos 5 weeks after our wedding day (thatâ€s extremely fast). They prepared two DVDs for us and one for each of our families. The DVDs contained the photos in high resolution (for printing) and low resolution (for sharing on the web or by email). Now comes the most important part to mention… the quality of their work. The photos are superb; pure art! Seriously, we never thought the photos would come out so well. The colors, the backgrounds, the angles, the lighting, the moments captured. This alone is worth hiring them, but well, they do offer the whole package (attitude, professionalism, quality of work). We are now having trouble picking those for framing.



Michael and Jennifer are a very nice couple, friendly and with an interesting conversation. Hiring them was the best decision we could have made and working with them was a great pleasure. We highly recommend them, you can`t go wrong with this one.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
