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.

The photos look great, really great. Thanks a lot for making it look even better than we remember. I know I keep saying this, but my parents are *still* talking about how amazing the photos are and everyone who sees our photo box is immediately jealous. Score."
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!:)
Choosing James McCoy to be part of our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process. James has a way of capturing just the right moments. Not only do we have amazing images to remind us of our special day, but James was truly a pleasure to work with. He is professional and easy to communicate with and truly listens to what you are wanting. I highly recommend using James McCoy for your wedding or event!!

“My husband and I needed an experienced outdoor wedding photographer for our Kenya Safari Wedding. We are so glad to have found Nishan. We love his work because its very natural yet artistic. He captured all the beautiful memories of our safari trip with friends and family as well as the day of the wedding. We also did a separate wedding photo shoot in the wild which was quite challenging since it was in an unfamiliar setting and animals in the wild are very unpredictable. The photos turned out to be wonderful nonetheless. Nishan also put together an awesome digital photo book for us that we proudly shared with everyone. Overall we were very pleased and have recommended Nishan to our friends. In fact, a good friend of ours saw our wedding photos and then asked Nishan to be a second photographer for their Bali wedding even though they’ve already hired one locally. They told me later that they were a lot happier with Nishan’s work.
Keep up the great work Nishan!”
“La magia de nuestro matrimonio logramos volverlo a vivir cada vez que miramos nuestras fotos, logradas por Lui Cano y su equipo de trabajo. Las miradas, la complicidad y el amor, unido a los paisajes, la luz del día y la experiencia en este tipo de fotografía hacen que nos devolvamos en el tiempo y nos enamoremos cada día mas…” – Carolina y Felipe
Right after i had my first visit to SiuMing, I already knew you are the only person who could give me what I longing for~
We had a crazily head spinning big day, you are not only just capturing the valuable moments that I might not see it myself on the day, but also beautifully recorded. I then realized you gotta be a superman-like multi-tasking skills to be a truly professional photographer! I know I would not missed a single moments because I have you guys~ You and your team performed far beyond excellence, without you guys, my wedding would not be as smoothed and successful.
I am truly thankful and blessed to have SiuMing and your team on my big day. Looking forward to see your art pieces, with me and Chris on them~
Lukas was very professional. He knew how to reassure us before the wedding day. He came to check on the wedding site beforehand so he was able to advise us on the best spot for the bride and groom photoshoot and took wonderful shots. He captures the emotion of the instant. He's very discreet, so the pictures come out natural. He was with us while we were getting ready, when we found out our bride and groom outfits, and followed us the whole day and part of the night. He has the eye to take original pictures even if the place is not exceptional. For the party, we chose 2 options:
1- the moving studio: great entertainement spot where you can take fun pictures of all invitees
2- the diaporama presentation: during the dinner, Lukas shows a nice presentation of the pictures he took the same day. It tells the story of our D-Day. Everything goes so fast during this day, especially when you make the final arrangements... Time flies, but thanks to the diaporama we could live again for 3 minutes this beautiful day. Thanks Lukas for your pictures, they'll remind us beautifully and with emotion our wedding day.

To catch the moment; the intense moment you lived (and is now a blur in your mind), the moment that almost passed you by, the moment that was shared by people dear to you. This is what we wanted from our wedding pictures and we thank SOVISUAL PHOTOGRAPHY for making it happen. With their sensitivity, discretion and artistic approach, they gave us pictures that tell the story of that day in the most beautiful, natural and spontaneous way. Sandy & Odysseas are great professionals (by far more organized than this bride and groom!) but make you feel so at ease and relaxed, like the pictures are taken by your best friends.
Sandy & Odysseas, thank you for sharing the moments with us. Because we understand that only if you share the moment, can you capture it in such a meaningful and beautiful way!
We zijn blij dat we voor Rinke hebben gekozen als fotograaf voor ons huwelijk. Hij is een echte professional met oog voor sfeer en detail. Hij is duidelijk als het moet, bijvoorbeeld tijdens de shoot, en onzichtbaar tijdens de ceremonie. - Paul & Christy
Susanna is AMAZING. We loved her SO much! She wanted our photos to be extra special, so she took us away from Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The scenery at that island is much more majestic than what could have been captured in the hotel zone, which we very much appreciated. Susanna was always very responsive. That is actually one of the many reasons I chose her for our special day. She has a unique eye. If you want your images to be different than anything you've ever seen before, then pick Susanna. I guarantee you, your friends and family will be in awe of your photos. I can't say enough positive things about Susanna. We are overjoyed and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!! Thanks again Susanna!
