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.

Christelle Rall, George, South Africa

Christelle was the photographer at our wedding. In Harare, Zimbabwe in August 2017. My wife and I were mesmerised at her mind blowing skills. She displayed some outstanding tricks with lighting. The photos that she done for us were out of this world. I’m not an expert at photography, but I would say she’s probably one of the best in the world.

Stefan Redel, Moers, NRW, Germany

"Lieber Stefan, Wir haben so viele schöne Erinnerungen an unsere Hochzeit! Vielen Dank nochmal für die Ganz tollen Bilder."

(Kirstin & Cornelius, bei Karlsruhe, die Mutter ist 3 Wochen nach der Hochzeit verstorben und es waren die letzten richtigen gemeinsamen Fotos.)

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"First, these pictures defy hyperbole. They are beyond stunning and some are so wonderful and personal and we will forever treasure them. The rest are works of art that should probably hang in a gallery and we will also forever treasure. We cannot express how lucky we are that you both agreed to be our photographers--we had high expectations, and even so you blew us away. Thank you a thousand times."

Christelle Rall, George, South Africa

It was an absolute pleasure working with Christelle Rall! We could not have hoped for more in terms of our pictures and capturing our special day. She made us feel comfortable and we felt like we were in our element. Christelle really has a great eye and she is an artist at heart. This is reflected in all her work. Thivern and I want to say a huge thank you and we hope to work with her again one day!

"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

We were very impressed with Adrian (and his assistant, Ivonne) before, during and after our wedding in September 2012.

He communicated well before the wedding despite the language difference (my wife speaks Spanish but I did most of the organiz ing of the venue and photographer), making sure we had a solid timetable of events and an idea of the style of wedding we were planning. He also checked out the venue beforehand, which we thought was very professional.

During the wedding (through preparation, ceremony and reception) both Adrian and Ivonne worked quietly and almost unnoticed. This allowed them to capture some beautiful moments as people could just get on with having a good time and not worry about a camera in their face. At least half of the guests commented to us about how impressed they were with the photographers on the day. They also worked quickly with us while doing the couple portraits as we wanted to get back to the party. They also had to race at times as the best light came and went very quickly throughout the day due to the weather.

After the wedding we got to see the first photos within a few weeks. We had a large number of images that we were very happy with, which made it tough to choose the ones for the album. We have recently received the album, which looks absolutely amazing. We would have had it in November/December if not for our indecision with the images we wanted.

We have been to a few weddings now and are sure we had the best photographer of any of the ones we have been to. His style was exactly what we were looking for. We knew straight away that we could trust him to deliver on the day (we have friends who weren’t so lucky with their photographer), which was really important to us, obviously.

He exceeded our expectations. We would recommend Adrian without hesitation.

Kind regards,
Bret & Sonia.

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.

Lupe Arguello, Cancun, Mexico

I believe in investing in a good photographer since pictures are always gonna be there. I got two with Take it photo. Their packages are affordable, and the pictures are priceless. We got the package with all the photos. During the planning process, Take it always answered my concerns and accommodated our needs. On the wedding date, Lupe helped me and Agustin was with the groomsmen.They helped us with our poses and everything else to get the best photos out of the date. One month after, the pictures came out. AMAZING!!! my husband is still looking at them everyday and he uses our wedding pictures for his computer screen saving AT WORK which he had never done. Everyone texted me to ask where I found Take it and how I knew they were good. From the guests to those who couldnt make it to our wedding, they complemented on our pictures. All of the photos is the good mix of artistic, fun and goofy, which is what we wanted. They told our story 

Pick them or at least email them. Let them know who you are and what you want. You wont regret! When they get a sense of your personality, that shows in the pictures!! If I ever do it again, I am going with Take it!!!
