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.

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!:)
Tom and I looked at many portfolios online, including English photographers with the intention of flying them to Greece, however no photos took our eye like Sovisual Photography's! Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we now have the best memory to hold forever - our photos! Sandy and Odysseas did an exceptional job and fulfilled and surpassed all of our expectations. Not only do we have the most beautiful photo's, we also made two new friends!
James was honestly the best vendor we worked with throughout the entire wedding. He showed up early, stayed late, and took the most incrediable pictures. His pictures were so creative and beautiful. He captured moments of my wedding that I didn't even see! I was blown away when we received our photos back. He is worth every penny!!
We are couple from Turkey and we were lucky to find Nishan for our wedding photographs. He succeeded to capture natural and wonderful photographs of our best moments. Our families and friends admire all of our photographs. Nishan was so professional and it was easy to work with him, he made us comfortable and also we had lots of fun in photo shoots. We would like to thank him again for his fantastic work. If you want to have the best photos that everybody gets admire then you should do yourself a favor and find Nishan.

"Jason is a lovely laid back guy who takes the most beautiful photos in a completely unobtrusive manner. If you want the perfect photographic memory of your special occasion where the photos just happen and don't take over then Jason is the perfect man for the job. Plus on top of all that, his prices are beyond reasonable, book him now before the secret of his brilliance gets out and his cost goes through the roof and availability is non existent! I promise you won't regret it, he is truly amazing!"
We used Adamo Morgese for our June 2013 wedding in fabulous Ravello.
Our photographs and DVD are truly amazing! Adamo blended in seamlessly with our wedding and he really captured the essence of our day.
Apart from being a magnificent photographer he is professional, trustworthy and a genuinely nice person. All my guests loved him!!
Thank you Adamo we are so happy that we found you. We would love to see you whenever you are visiting Scotland.

“La magia de nuestro matrimonio logramos volverlo a vivir cada vez que miramos nuestras fotos, logradas por Lui Cano y su equipo de trabajo. Las miradas, la complicidad y el amor, unido a los paisajes, la luz del día y la experiencia en este tipo de fotografía hacen que nos devolvamos en el tiempo y nos enamoremos cada día mas…” – Carolina y Felipe

Dear Marcel and Meher,
Thank you both very much for these amazing photos.
We opened a bottle of wine and re-lived the wedding day through your photos, and we loved every single one of them (and there were some really funny, brilliant ones that made us laugh!)
Thank you again for being with us on the day!!

Hey Marcel and Meher!!

Hi Marcel and Meher,
We LOVE the pictures! thank you both so much for doing an amazing job! I can't stop looking at them. You truly captured the day and we couldn't have hoped for any more :)
Chrissy & Vince
Hi! Thank you so much for the pictures!! They are great!!!! It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day. Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Hi Marcel & Meher,
The pictures are truly spectacular!!! Thank you both so, so much. You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away. I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day. Can’t tell you how happy it made me. We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.
Thank you again!!!

I cannot speak highly enough about Carlos and Melissa from Car & Mel Photography who captured our special elopement. You are willing to go the distance...literally! After a drive from PV, 30+ minute boat ride with multiple stops along the way to Yelapa, climbing 400+ steps in the heat to reach the top of our resort, you were ready to jump in and capture all the magical moments until the last bit of light. You made us feel so comfortable and it was a pleasure to have you join us on our special day! You guys rock! Thank you for the amazing photos. I am in love with them all!
