Who We Are

Travel and discovery are a big part of our lives.

Jennifer has trekked the Inca Trail and learned to scuba dive in the Galapagos. She has traveled solo up the Amazon in Peru to see dolphins, was face-to-face with a mountain lion while camping in Montana, and while traveling alone in India worked as an “extra” in a Bollywood film. Horseback riding in Mongolia and exploring Myanmar are on her bucket list.

Michael has trekked in Nepal, traveled across the Sahara with a camel caravan for National Geographic,  and journeyed by bus in Uganda and Rwanda to visit mountain gorillas. While staying on a Lake Victoria island chimp sanctuary he babysat (chimpsat?) a young chimp. He wants to go diving in the Galapagos and to explore Myanmar with Jennifer (but plans to avoid horses in Mongolia).

Together we have seen flamingos in the high deserts of Bolivia, heard the muezzin’s call to prayer in Morocco, photographed the Holy Week celebrations in Guatemala, and lived in Mexico. However, few places or experiences beat camping in the Rocky mountains. We’re always planning our next photo adventure.

However, our next important assignment will be your wedding. You can get started by contacting us here.

Why Choose M&J for your Mexico or U.S. Destination Wedding

First and foremost, we care.  We completely invest ourselves in you and your wedding photography. We also think the whole husband and wife thing is an advantage, because we are able to deliver a male and female perspective, as well as keep those most intimate moments, exactly that: intimate. We make it our mission to capture the beauty, personality, and authenticity of you and your wedding from the unique perspectives of two experienced destination wedding photographers. 

We are big believers in “what you see is what you get. We don’t employ a staff of 10 people, we don’t delegate small tasks to production assistants, and we don’t have junior photographers shooting your most precious moments. When you book with us, you are actually booking us. We will be involved in every detail, both large and small before, during and after your Mexico destination wedding day.

Those 40 years of experience we mentioned earlier have given us the tools to create magical images, the ability to work unobtrusively, and a knack for catching that perfect moment through a lens.

From the built up anticipation of getting a glimpse of each other for the first time, to the looks of adoration in your teary eyes, to your post-ceremony giddiness, with us behind the camera, you won’t just see the images of those once-in-a-lifetime moments, you’ll be able to relive them all over again.
