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.

Testimonials
Jeannine Pohl, 676 Smith Ave S St. Paul, MN 55107

How can we express what an important and amazing part of our wedding day that Jeannine played. The photos are the one thing you cannot skimp on. These are your memories, and Jeannine did just a beautiful job with ours.

"Jeannine traveled from the Twin Cities up to Duluth to shoot for a day at the Glensheen Mansion for us. Everything she did was perfect, from the shot selection, to her efficiency, to her fun, easy nature. She was an absolute joy to work with.

Jeannine even had a short slideshow of the early photos she had taken playing on a monitor at the bar after dinner, which was an amazing addition.

Within a few days of the wedding, we had a "sneak peak" available on her website, and within a week or two of that we had our digital prints.

Fast, friendly, and amazing. We could not recommend her more strongly.

If you are going to be getting married in Minnesota, there's no one better."

Thank you Mark for everything you did for us on the day of the wedding, as well as the engagement shoot and of course the final details including our fabulous album. We absolutely love it. You were so easy going and relaxed on the day and the pictures speak for themselves. Stephanie & Paul

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"As a professional photographer myself and mother of the groom, picking a stellar photographer was vitally important. I vividly recall meeting Jesse and Moira at the bridal show as their work stood out from all the rest-literally I was drawn to it. They were both incredibly easy to talk with and their pride and passion for their work was clearly evident. Later, they met with my now daughter in law and me (my son was out of the country on business) at the picked wedding venue and both fully answered/tolerated all my questions about their photography equipment, philosophy and style. Fortunately, they agreed to photograph an engagement shoot and the wedding despite me!

They both have a methodical workflow leaving no detail left undone and that combined with Jesse and Moira being gifted, talented , artistic, punctual, unique and professional photographers results in stunningly gorgeous images. During the wedding they are able to capture all special moments all the while being inconspicuous. Their images take you right back to that wondrous, monumental day and you know that they've "hit one out of the park" when EVERYONE that sees them LOVES them!!!"

De details, belichting, spontaniteit en creativiteit hebben gezorgd voor prachtige fotografie! Onopvallend op de dag, maar geeft de juiste tips op het moment dat dit nodig is. Het album is een helder en mooi resultaat die de sfeer van de dag goed laat zien.  - Thomas & Sanne

Lupe Arguello, Cancun, Mexico

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.
