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.

Sabrina & Jonas - Wedding in Spiez, Switzerland.

Lupe Arguello, Cancun, Mexico

My partner and I got married in Playa del Carmen November 2013. As a same sex couple, we were very nervous about selecting a photographer. We had a hard enough time finding a resort that was ok with our wedding. We knew the photographer would be with us all day, and we wanted to make sure they would be able to put us as ease. My partner and I are very shy and super awkward around a camera. After months of combing through reviews and portfolios we decided to hire Take It! I have to say this was probably the best decision we made in our whole year of wedding planning. So let me tell you about Lupe and Agustin.

The Photographers

Where to begin… After spending two days with Lupe and Agustin I am convinced they could put anyone at ease. Spending time with them was like spending time with friends; friends whose job it is to make you feel beautiful and taken care of. Lupe is kind and bubbly and extremely artistic. Agustin is hilarious and creative and has an eye for very unique photos. He even got in the water with an underwater camera for our Trash the Dress session. These two fit so well with our wedding party. So many guests came up to me after to say how much they liked Lupe and Agustin. And that was before they saw the photos!  

The Photos

But I’m sure everyone is interested in the photos. We received them yesterday and were just blown away. Lupe and Agustin captured vibrant colours, breathtaking scenery, artistic details and, most importantly, precious moments between my partner and I. We looked so natural and happy in all the photos. You could never tell that we are shy. My friends have commented that we could be models. Imagine that! The best thing about these two is they are both incredible photographers with slightly different approaches. The result is a series of photos from different angles and perspectives. Our package came with 200 photos. That seems like a lot, but it took us 3 weeks to make our choices because all the photos were so good! I can’t say enough how much I love them!  

The Recommendation

I know this review has been gushing, but seriously, these photographers are worth it. I would not hesitate to recommend Lupe and Agustin to anyone. If you want photos that are gorgeous and unique these are your photographers. Lupe and Agustin, thank you for capturing the precious moments between me and Kiera so we can remember them forever. You are the best!

Huy Nguyen Quoc, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam

Huy and his team are pleasant to work with. Huy added me on facebook and that's how I knew about his Wedding services. All the photos and videos he took for my wedding are very well done and beautiful. I received so many compliments from my friends. Huy is very easy and friendly to work with. He responds very fast, patient and thorough to all my questions. You can reach him 24/7. Huy and his team are on time, fun, and easy to communicate. They created a fun and comfortable environment so I didn't feel awkward taking photo by them. Overall, it was such a great experience to work with Huy and his team. I highly recommend Nguyen Quoc Huy Weddings to anyone who is looking for a professional photographer/videographer for their special day. Thank you Huy and your team!!

Luis Miguel Hernández, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The location was breathtaking, overlooking the water with the scent of the ocean as we said our vows in front of our family. The photographer from Ocean Photo took the most exquisite photos throughout the ceremony of my family and wedding party, as well as a private photo session by the Mayan ruins overlooking the cliff by the ocean! He captured the most amazing shots of our special day!

Fabio Azanha, Lisbon, Portugal

How fortunate to have found you Maria and Fábio! Our wedding had two parts, a day of Indian celebrations and another with the civil ceremony. When we had the great luck to meet you, we felt a strong chemistry, and also strong conviction that we had found the ideal photographers for our wedding. The fact that we changed the first party date to fit into your busy schedule, should  give you an idea of just how much we liked you. We really wanted our wedding to tell a story ! And we had  you exceeded all our expectations. The photos are pure art! I was a model for a few years, so  I met some good photographers ... and I can say that your photos of our wedding are the most beautiful I've seen. It was a great pleasure to witness your skils being put into practice! Thank you Maria and Fabio!

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

Great team, excellent results

Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom.  Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos.  Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly:  whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it.  And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers.  This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be.  We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form.  Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”
