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.

“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!”
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!:)
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.

We used Adamo as the photographer for our wedding in Tuscany in late October 2012. We couldn't have been happier with Adamo's presence at our wedding, he made us feel comfortable and he had a great sense of humour. We had pictures taken in the Siena Town Hall where we were married and then Adamo chose some amazing spots in the countryside on the way back to our Villa to take photos. We now have some beautiful photos taken in a spectacular and truly Tuscan setting. The photos back at the Villa Stomennano that we had hired for the wedding celebrations are gorgeous. Adamo's photos of my Husband and I are fantastic and we have some gorgeous family and group photos which really capture the excitement and happiness of the day.
Thanks Adamo we are so happy that you were the photographer for our wedding day.

Dear Philip, I hope you and your family are all doing very well! Andy and I flew back from Thailand yesterday, moving back to London for a few years. We've just been looking at last, (we've been so looking forward to seeing them) through our wedding album and they are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for all your hard work. We were just saying again how very lucky we feel to have found you- you felt like an important part of our big day and my family loved having you there. The pictures are incredible and such a special reminder of that day- beautiful beautiful albums too! I'm really glad we went for 2 in the end; it was too hard cutting them down from the original selection! It was extra special looking at the albums this morning as we've got some exciting news; a new Perrins addition to our family who is due in September! I can't wait to them the photos one day. Thank you so much and best of luck with your busy summer season! All those newly weds will be very lucky to have you as their photographer. Kind regards, Katherine and Andy

Thank G-d we were blessed this past summer to be able to make two weddings, one in Crown Heights and one just outside Monsey. We used Kristen Reimer and her partner Steve of Photomuse for both and we could not have been happier. Although Photomuse had not been familiar with all the details of an Orthodox wedding, we filled them in on the program of events, from the beddeking and tish up to the final sheva bracha at benching! Not only were Kristen and Steve respectful of all of our customs, and a pleasure to work with, but they captured every relevant detail with a fresh appreciation for the artistry in every moment. With their ability to be creative as well as accurate we got wonderfully artistic and original records of two very special events! I have no hesitation in recommending them to any one considering using their services. For an Orthodox wedding in particular they certainly know now what to expect and can be counted on not to miss or skip any significant moment!!

Guilherme, sem palavras pra descrever o quão verdadeira estão nossas fotos, nós amamos cada minutinho desse dia e está tudo aí, na cara e no sorriso de cada uma delas, sem dúvida emoção transbordando pra todos os lados… Seu trabalho é realmente incrível e sua tranquilidade e jeitinho amigo é teu bem maior, obrigada por tudo e parabéns pelo profissionalismo, recomendo muito!

Julien in my opinion is not a wedding photographer but an artist. As a bride I could not have been happier with my wedding pictures as they captured the essence of every moment of my wedding day. The photographs are simply outstanding. I was fortunate to have traveled to Puerto Vallarta a couple of months before the wedding to plan my perfect day with my mother and we had the pleasure of meeting Julien during our trip. We hired him during our meeting not only because he was highly recommended and we had previously seen samples of his work on his blog but most importantly we hired him because he was friendly and incredibly passionate about his work. And now that the wedding is behind us, we could have not made a better decision. During the wedding day he was everywhere capturing every moment; and now every picture tells a story. On the day of the wedding, Julien and his assistant were on time, prepared, and came with a flexible and super friendly attitude. Julien in my honest opinion is the absolute best photographer in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas and he charges a fair price for his work. When I met with him he set up realistic expectations on when I was supposed to receive my pictures and he delivered before the deadline, which I was incredibly happy about.
To any bride out there looking for a phenomenal photographer, Julien is your guy!!! It was great meeting him before the wedding but looking back now, it was unnecessary as his passion for his work provides you as a bride with stunning photographs of your wedding.
Thank you Julien on behalf of my husband and I and all our wedding guests and family who loved your work!
