Why the Best Wedding Photographers are ISPWP Members

The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) is a rarity among wedding photography organizations. Photographers cannot simply buy an ISPWP membership, they have to earn it.

Our requirements are experience, talent, and professionalism. To be accepted, a photographer must have shot at least 50 weddings, submit their portfolio for review, agree to operate under the ISPWP Code of Conduct, and have an ISPWP Sponsor or four references. And THEN they have to be voted in by current members.

In short, when you hire an ISPWP Photographer, you are hiring a talented veteran with a track record, peer recognition, and a passion for creating heirloom images of your wedding.

Testimonials
Lupe Arguello, Cancun, Mexico

I could not have been happier with my experience with Take It! Photo! Lupe and Augustin were amazing - friendly, funny, creative, talented, professional - they made me, my husband and all of our family and friends feel so comfortable and they were able to capture all of the happiness and magic of such a special day. Every time I look through the photos, I have a permanent smile on my face because it feels like I am right back in Mexico, reliving one of the happiest days of my life. And I am so excited that I will see them again this May as my friend has just booked them for her wedding! You are truly wonderful, Take It! Photo!:)

Olexiy Syrotkin, Rome, Italy

Dear Olexiy. You did an absolutely amazing job in capturing all the emotions and unique moments of our most important day, which you thus made memorable. Working with you was truly comfortable, relaxed, and easy-going. Your pictures are great pieces of work because your eyes always discovered things and we would never have seen or combined. Olexiy, you are not only an excellent photographer. We also truly appreciated having you as a guest in our parents’ home.

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi. I see that a lot of people post asking for a good photographer. I just got married in positano and used adamo morgese. He isn't local but he travelled from near Rome to positano and didn't charge us extra ( as most told us they would). His prices were a fraction of some other quotes we received. Especially the local ones.

 

On the day he was fantastic. So energetic, passionate and willing to do whatever it took to get a shot. He actually jumped out of the moving bride vehicle and took photos from the side and then jumped back in. Whilst it was moving. And the shots are amazing. He captured beautiful moments in photographs naturally without posing. Some of the shots are so peefect we didn't imagine they would be that good.

He also had no maximum amount of photos like a lot of others did. And he gave us CDs with all the photos for our own use. (2400 all up).

Cadoret Ossama, Bordeaux, France

We were very fortunate to have Ossa to document our wedding / family trip to Luberon area.
He is personal, sincere and creative. His unique perspective and sensitivity for the light and surroundings have led to amazing photographs.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 2-day photography sessions with him!

人和人之间的缘分就是那么奇妙,在好姐妹的婚礼上偶遇阿军,一天的相处后被他敬业的精神深深感动,又被他风趣幽默的性格所感染,当时就说过,自己的婚礼也要请他当摄影师的~所幸军哥刚好有档期,事实证明我的选择是非常正确的!军哥无论是婚礼前,婚礼当天还是婚礼后都非常用心,堪称业界良心!感谢军哥让我的婚礼不留遗憾。一年过去了,翻开军哥给我们拍摄的照片,还是满满的感动,满满的甜蜜。衷心祝福军哥,也祝愿天下有情人终成眷属^_^

LOVE THEM JACEK! Thank you!  Just sat here for over an hour looking at all of them!

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between me and the groom about the type of camera one should use and the technicality the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the photos and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that it wasn’t about the camera but about the photographer.

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was so easy and fun to work with! I love all the pictures that he took! He kept us laughing and was very punctual. He took the time to go over eveything in the contract so we fully understood what we were getting! The best part is how we received the final pictures! It was such a unique and special way to do it! I would recommend James McCoy to anyone!!

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

We would like to thank great, sympathetic and above all professional photographic couple John and Mary. Shooting was due to their approach is very relaxed and also very entertaining. We are happy that they have become an integral part of our so momentous day. They could be captured in the highest quality, so that the photos will come back in time, as if it was still June 11, 2011. For all of them from us includes a large THANKS.”

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

That’s true!

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.

I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.

Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.

After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!

I’ll rate him with 5 stars.
