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.

Am 19.08.2014 haben wir unsere Kirchliche Hochzeit gefeiert. Einen wirklich guten Video- und Fotografen zu finden stand natürlich ganz oben auf der Liste. Im Internet sind wir zufällig auf Volodimir und Igor gestoßen und waren direkt von ihren Fotos und Videos begeistert. Die Organisation war unkompliziert, zur Hochzeit sind alle pünktlich gekommen, die Atmosphäre war offen und sehr positiv! Alle Gäste hatten Spaß mit den Fotografen und strahlen auf allen Bildern. Die Fotos sind einfach traumhaft geworden und beim Video stehen mir immer Tränen in den Augen. Wir können IVASH Photography nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für so tolle Erinnerungen!

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~
'We have just received our wedding album and we absolutely LOVE it! Paul was so discrete on our wedding day and he has really captured the happiness of the day. We would recommend him without hesitation!'
Thank you so much for a fantastic day yesterday, you guys made us feel so relaxed and picked the most perfect locations.
We love the photos, they are just lovely. So natural, you did an amazing job. We can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you so much for getting those to us so quickly!

We would like to thank so much to Zibi Photography for proffesional Wedding session. We are glad, that we met Zibi and also very happy of heaving so beautiful pictures from so important day for us. We can honestly reccomend Zibi to all who would like to meet a nice photographer making beautiful pictures:) Linda&Tomek
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!!!
When we started planning our wedding, photography was near the bottom of our list. After 14 years together we had our fair share of photos, and the typical wedding photos were not our style. We did, however, appreciate and value the idea of capturing our wedding to be able to reflect back and remember the day, so we were struggling satisfying both of these perspectives.
Shayne had a great vibe, professional but laid back. Looking at his portfolio we could tell he had an eye for great photos. Our fears of boring, cold, lifeless photos went away

Mark, we could not be happier with your work. Your professionalism, important and relevant pieces of advice throughout the day. I particularly remember you saying to me outside the church to walk slowly up the aisle as it was a short aisle so it wouldn't take long to get to the top! Brilliant advice and really made me savour the moment with dad and the start of the aisle and take everything in. You were just a pleasure to have around throughout the day, we always felt comfortable with you and I had complete trust in you which really helped us enjoy the day and I feel you were pivotal in the relaxed atmosphere that so many people have commented on since! Your guidance to have photos near Cromleach was also great rather than wasting precious time travelling for photos..it meant we got to the reception about 3.30 and had loads of time to spend with guests so we never felt under pressure during the day. And the album and print that you gave us! Just fabulous!!! To have the album so quickly is just unbelievable!!! We have your Print framed and hanging already! The album is beautiful and our parents love their mini albums as they can bring them to work/ when meeting friends and show them photos! What more can we say! Can't sing your praises enough, apart from being an amazing and talented photographer it is your effortless demeanor and quiet disposition that really sets you head and shoulders above other photographers. You perfectly documented our day and we will be forever grateful! I must get all this onto feedback on your webpage or please feel free to take from my comments above. Andrew and I give you 6 ðððððð! Many Thanks, Susan & Andrew ð

“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!”
