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.

We received the pictures yesterday and I am absolutely happy with the results. You did an AMAZING job!!! Well done. I am not just a Skin Specialist but also a fashion Model so I am extremely fussy when it comes to photo shoots and you ticked all the boxes. (: I will definitely recommend you to anybody I know as I am extremely happy with the outcome. And good work has to be rewarded. I am glad I trusted you 100% and will let any other brides know. Hope you are doing well ! We shall keep in touch. ,"

I am very satisfied of the work done to date by Danilo Muratore photographer, who has shown great professionalism and discretion. It has also proved very helpful in meeting the needs of spouses
Jacek is a cut above the rest!! He is extremely talented & very passionate about his work. For our outdoor wedding reception, he captured the most beautiful photos that had a magical quality of light. He took all of the family standard shots in such an efficient way that my husband & I even got a chance to enjoy our cocktail hour! He was not in our face or intrusive during the wedding at all, yet he still got all of the shots. He was so well organized & he always returned my calls or emails very quickly. Jacek loves to photograph & the proof of that is obvious in the stunning photos he takes. He is an artist & was a joy to work with. My husband, my family, and I are so glad that he was our photographer. I could not be happier - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACEK!
"Your photos are spontaneous and natural and completely unlike traditional wedding images. You’re a professional photographer who puts people at ease; I hardly realised you were there half them time. You offer unbeatable value for money and the photos are fantastic.” Verónica, Barcelona.
My wife and I were married at Dreams Riviera Cancun in April of 2015. We wanted to give ourselves plenty of time to plan and prepare for our wedding so our engagement was roughly 17 months. At least 3 of those months were spent looking for the right photographer.
We are very picky when it comes to photos as I've worked in the industry for over 10 years and my wife knows exactly what she wants. From the moment that we discovered Take It! Photo we knew that we had to have them photograph our wedding. Technically speaking, their photos are spot on. Their composition is amazing and they find unique ways to incorporate the beauty in their surroundings. Even more importantly however, they see things differently and capture photos that bring you back to the moment they were taken. That is exactly what we were looking for.
Fast forward 6 months or so from the time that we booked Take It! Photo and our big day finally arrived. Agustin started off by photographing our group of guys as we were getting ready and Lupe was in another room photographing the girls. Looking back at these photos now, they are priceless to us as they really do capture our feelings leading up to our wedding.
Later on that day the team worked together to help capture the remaining moments of our wedding, including the ceremony, post ceremony and reception. Agustin and Lupe's styles blend together so wonderfully and we love that we have some pictures of the same event but from two completely different perspectives.
Less than a month after our wedding we received an email indicating that our proofs were ready. Wow. Of course we were expecting great things, but we could never have imagined how hard it would be to select our photos. They were really all that wonderful. That's a good problem to have and exactly what we were hoping for.
If you decide to have Take It! Photo photograph your special day you will not be disappointed. They are a wonderfully talented team that compliment each other very well. Their genuine nature is contagious and they do a magnificent job of capturing all the emotions of your wedding. You could not ask for any more and we would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a destination wedding photographer. If you're still reading this, stop. Go ahead and email Take It! Photo and confidently cross “find photographer” off your wedding checklist.
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!

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening
