More about us and you


Just as you want to find the right vendor to work with, we also want to find the right couples. In any relationship, it’s important to be open and honest when communicating who we are and what we want. If we know where we’re starting from, the path to success is much clearer. Let’s get started.


We are storytellers and visual artists. We are passionate about our craft and strive for perfection. We sacrifice weekends and holidays so that we can do a job we love. Aesthetics are important to us. We appreciate beauty. We’re experts and pride ourselves in our ability to handle anything thrown at us.

When choosing couples, we look for those who connect with our work. Who are moved by our images and cry at our films. They see themselves in our work. They trust us. They aren’t afraid to open up and show a side they don’t show everyone. They believe in what we are doing and our process.



You are a believer in love and real connections. You see the world through the eyes of positivity and witness endless opportunities all around you. You’re sophisticated and elegant. You have a taste for beauty and finer things. You’re not afraid to let your guard down. You cry. You laugh. You are each others best friends.

When picking your vendors, you care most about quality and service. To you, the way your vendors dress, act, and interact with family and guests is as important as the quality of their work. You want your team to be professional, to have experience dealing with the unpredictable nature of a live event. In the end, the memories your photo and video teams capture will be all that’s left and you’ll gladly pay to have the best in the business do it.

Does this sound good?
About the MJS


  • 01/06

    We believe strongly in personal connections and while email is quick and efficient, choosing the right storytellers to document the most important day of your life should be anything but that. We’ll schedule a call and start the dialogue. If we can get you into our office – even better! We’ll review some work, look at albums, and hopefully lock in your date.

  • 02/06

    We’ll work closely with you and/or your planner to develop the best schedule of photography/cinematography for your day. Once you’re an MJS couple, you’ll also get access to our exclusive MJS Experience section of our website with pages of helpful tips, sample timelines, and best practices to have the best chance of a stress-free day. 

  • 03/06

    A huge part of the MJS Experience is to go through an Engagement Session with your photographer. This is vital to building a rapport with your photographer and getting the best images on the wedding day. Since no two people photograph the same, your photographer will learn what works for you and your partner. After the session we’ll critique the work together and make notes on what to avoid to maximize our time on the wedding day. 

  • 04/06

    The day of the wedding should be smooth sailing thanks to all the pre-planning we’ve done together. Just enjoy the day and leave the hard stuff to us.

  • 05/06

    We know how excited you’ll be after the wedding, which is why it’s our goal to get you your photographs and film back in a timely manner. One thing we will never compromise on though, is quality. Even if it means taking a little bit longer to make everything perfect. After everything is delivered, we’ll start the album design process – something we encourage all our clients to add to their package. Your future generations will thank you.

  • 06/06

    The wedding day is just the start of your journey. There will be many more milestones to document and cherish and as an MJS couple, enjoy savings on family portrait sessions with MJS Photographers and Cinematographers.

Michael Justin Studios was the first vendor we booked when planning our wedding. From our first phone call, engagement session, and the last photo snapped on the night of our wedding, Michael and his crew put us at ease. There was never a doubt that our photos and cinema would be anything but stunning, and there are no words to describe how happy we are with the work produced for us
