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 ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.
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!
I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.
We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.
We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.
Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how he captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.
Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.
Thanks so much Daniel!!!

My husband and I love every single capture of our wedding. The pictures are absolutely wonderful. Nishan did prove that he is the best there is in Maldives.
He is not only a superb photographer but also a great person to work with. Our outdoor photo shoot was threatened by bad weather with dark clouds and rain. Well, things not going as planned are a nightmare for any bride and groom. However, he was confident and gave us continuous hope that it would work out well. And, it did.
When we got to see the photos we were awed. We love them so much, they are our treasures. Everyone who saw them admired them. We are just so happy in selecting Nishan as our wedding photographer and we do recommend him for any couple looking for one. We thank you Nishan, for giving us our beautiful treasures.

We were looking for a different style from the classic services, it was dynamic and that too was not dependent upon the time of day. Danilo, with his professionalism and discretion, met our every request or expectation. It came out a beautiful album, with many "stolen" shots wisely in the day. Danilo will allow you to spend your days having fun with your guests, in your own time and your desires. I will choose it again for our silver wedding anniversary.
Lupe and Agustin are amazing!! My hubby and I got married in August and couldn't have chosen more perfect photographers to capture our day! We are thrilled with the pictures and can't stop staring at them! They are so easy to work with and truly know what moments to snap photos of . Thanks again!! Xo
I wanted to send you a quick note highlighting a wedding photographer by the name of Eric Fabrer (Marseille, France), whom I recently worked with. My name is David H...., a fellow Portlander, who decided to get married In France instead of here in Oregon. I normally do not write letters like this, but I feel like I need to for this individual. I only know about your specific association because he briefly spoke of it.
Not only did his photo’s turn out absolutely perfect, but (and the reason I am writing this letter) Eric’s friendliness and humor helped make our wedding perfect. As I’m sure you can imagine, two Americans getting married in France, surrounded by only the French language, can be quite challenging. Eric knew my fiancée (now wife!) and I were slightly uncomfortable, as we did not have family or friends attend our ceremony, but his personality truly helped make us feel comfortable. I’ve worked with other photographers before and none have I ever been so pleased with. I will always be indebted to Eric for helping make our wedding perfect.
I do not know how your specific industry or association functions, but should you ever come across Eric, please consider him.
Thank you, Joe.
James was amazing! He is very professional while still being friendly and likable, so we felt very comfortable with him. Before the wedding day we went over all the shots that were most important to me and he did a great job capturing those for us, as well as many I never thought about. James delivered our pictures to us in about a week and a half and we were amazed at the beauty, quality and amount of pictures he was able to get. I will continue to use James for family photo shoots in the future and would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event.
Our wedding photos are amazing! The best photos i've ever seen of Matt and I, i don't know how Sandy and Odysseas done it! The professionalism and attention to detail was like nothing i'd ever witnessed. They went over and above for us. This couple are beautiful people inside and out! A real pleasure to have them as part of our day!

Dear Till and Nadja,
Your pictures are truly unbelievable! Tehy are more than we ever hoped or dared to dream of. It was a wonderful day, full of joy, love and happiness and your pictures surely represent that to the smallest detail.
You´ve made our wedding day even more precious that it already was by making it possible for us to go back in time anytime we want to relive the most happiest day of our lives.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you have done for us!
We are thankful beyond words!

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!:)
