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.

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke by itself.
I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth to be said, I was 95% sure that he will do it. the 5% left was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He caused a good impression on me and he agreed to move to attend the wedding.
Before the wedding, just 2 or 3 more calls to talk about planning, and we meet him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing his job without making guests realize they were there.
After the wedding all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we didn’t stop sharing his contact details because whoever sees the photos they ask for him!
I’ll rate him with 5 stars.

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.
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
We had the privilege to have Lukas take our photos on our wedding day on the 25th July 2015 in the Jardin des Martels and then the Moulin de Nartaud in France. Despite the quirky wedding format with opted for, and thus the very early start and consequently long day ahead, Lukas was very understanding and adaptable to our needs. He is a very nice guy who got along with every one involved on the day and genuinely enjoys what he's doing and the quality of is work is beyond reproach. The photos all look very natural and never forced or staged, he just hides in plain sight and takes the perfect shot at the perfect moment without being in the way. We were especially impressed by the fact that he managed to prepare a diaporama/slideshow with key photos and a tastefully chosen music on the very same evening for all the guests to enjoy at the end of the meal, and without fail it impressed all the guests with a lot of laughter, "ooh's" and "aah's" and also a few tears. We also can't say enough good about his commitment and availability afterwards; he is always very prompt to answer any questions you may have and will go the extra mile to keep you happy. I can say with confidence that anyone choosing his services will be completely satisfied.

We were so lucky to have a 5 star venue and 5 star meal matched by a 5 star photography service end to end - if you put in half of the effort you put in we would have been happy so you can imagine how delighted we are with all your extra effort! Thanks Mark. Caroline & John
Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".
“The photos are spectacular. We love all of them!! They’re marvellous!! To make someone cry when they see a photo only happen when the image truly reflects the emotion of the moment. We also laughed lots seeing some of them. We loved them. Wow!! You’re a great photographer!! A big hug and thanks for everything.” Laura, Logroño, La Rioja.
Mario exceeded all of our expectations by leaps and bounds! From our very first e-mail to communications after the wedding he has always responded to all questions, promptly, professionally and with good humor. He was also absolutely wonderful to work with in person! Somehow , he managed to disappear into the crowd but was always ready to unobtrusively snap a photo when a great moment popped up or a group of guests asked for shot. Throughout the night several people told us that they wish they'd had him for their weddings! We liked him so much, that if he weren't already our photographer, we would have loved to have him at the wedding as a guest!
As far as his skills as a photographer go, his portfolio more than speaks for itself. We absolutely love our photos and how he managed to capture not only shots incorporating the beauty of the island but also our hapiness and love for each other! We're amazed at how vibrant they are and I can't imagine any way to more completely capture the feel of ceremony and evening. Whenever we look back at them in the years to come, they'll instantly take us back to how it felt to be newly married and celebrating with our friends and family!
If you're considering Mario for your event absolutely hire him, you simply won't find anyone better!
“Todo comenzó el día que decidimos casarnos y fue así donde en todo este cuento decidimos que Luis Cano y su grupo de fotógrafos inmortalizaran esta gran experiencia.
La respuesta que mi esposa Marisol y yo vivimos fue más que la esperada, unos 20 días antes de la boda no contábamos con que nos harían un estudio fotografico pre boda, nos dejaron sorprendidos con tan excelentes fotos. !Que se nos venía para este día tan especial!.
Cumplimiento, conjugado con el profesionalismo y el amor a servir, a dejar este hermoso momento inmortalizado en el lente de una cámara, el no tener que preocuparnos por decirles que hacer, que momento captar, no se sienten en todo el evento.
Es así como el resultado está lleno de felicidad, las miradas, las caricias, las sonrisas, el espacio todo en general hace parte de tan maravillosas fotos.
Mil gracias Luis Cano y a todo su equipo de trabajo, gracias por permitir con su profesionalismo que nuestra boda sea recordada por siempre.
Nuevamente mil y mil gracias
Altamente agradecidos, Marisol y Mauricio”
