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.

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!!

You did a fabulous job capturing the essence of us and the feeling of the wedding. So, thank you from the bottom of our hearts as this will ensure we never forget how wonderful that day was for us and our friends and family!!!

Hey Marcel and Meher!!
OMG---I loooove them all !! I got to share them with my parents and they were gushing with happiness. They were so impressed with yours and Meher's work.

Hi Marcel and Meher,

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. =)
Wilma & Greg
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!!!
Rachel & Nikki
Hi Marcel and Meher,
We are so excited to have received the wedding photos! Thank you so very much. The pictures are absolutely amazing and beautiful! We are very happy with them. We really enjoyed having the both of you as our photographers and truly believe that you do exceptional work. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and families. We are hoping to find some time in the near future to do another photo shoot and we'd love to hire you again.
Many thanks again for your great work!
Sharon and Chadd
These pictures are absolutely amazing! WE LOVE every single shot! Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding!

Oh, how lucky we were to have stumbled upon Maria and Fabio! One look at their stunning portfolio and we were completely captivated! True to their style, our wedding photos were breathtakingly beautiful! Vivid expressions, rich colors, innocent smiles and silent thoughts - they unintrusively captured every wonderful moment of our day. They are a great team together, complementing each other, very endearing and yet very professional. Thank you, Maria and Fabio, for gifting us such indelible memories of our wedding day!
James was so easy and fun to work with! I love all the pictures that he took! He kept us laughing and was very punctual. He took the time to go over eveything in the contract so we fully understood what we were getting! The best part is how we received the final pictures! It was such a unique and special way to do it! I would recommend James McCoy to anyone!!
"Jason was our wedding photographer this year and was absolutely fantastic. We really wanted someone to capture the story of our day and not have a massive list of staged photographs with our guests hanging around waiting for them all to be done! This is exactly what we got. We love looking through our CD of photos as every single one has captured a story or special moment from the day. Jason is so talented at getting different angles and reflections as well as capturing sacred moments shared with family and friends. No request is too big or small. We can't believe some of the photos that were taken as we don't even remember having a camera pointed at us.
We are currently choosing which photos to go into the album and we are taking what seems like forever to decide as there are just too many fantastic ones to choose from. It's a really tough job. Again we can't believe how quick the turn around is... we had preview shots the next day and 50 photos to look at whilst on honeymoon. On arriving back a week after the wedding the full 260 photos were on disk (in both viewing and printing mode) ready for us to see. Unbelievable - I have never heard of any other company having such a short turnaround but still with amazing quality.
Lastly - if the budget can stretch we would definitely recommend the pre-wedding/engagement shoot. We were so thrilled with the photos from this. We managed to get our parents Christmas presents from the photos and have our own canvas from this on the wall. Plus it is great to work with Jason and get to know him and used to the whole situation before the day of the wedding.
Don't give it a second thought... book. If we could do it all over again we would book Jason in a heartbeat. Thanks again Jason for your incredible work." Amy and Andy Leftley.
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.”

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!:)
Rinke is ontzettend enthousiast en goed in fotograferen. Hij heeft al eerder op de bruiloft van mijn broer foto's gemaakt.
Hij is heel geïnteresseerd en doet moeite om je te leren kennen. De fotoshoot was -ondanks de regen- heel leuk. Wij voelden ons op ons gemak en de foto's zijn heel mooi geworden.
Rinke, bedankt! - Martin & Caroline
I was so pleased with the profesionalism, and flexibility James provided form the very first consultation. He was not only on time but an hour early! We couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience!
Ainda nem vimos todas as fotos e já estamos extremamente satisfeitos! É maravilhoso ter a certeza que escolhemos a pessoa certa para registrar esse momento tão especial! Profissionalismo, sensibilidade e visão indiscutíveis! Obrigada por nos permitir reviver o momento a cada imagem!

I am a photograph enthusiast! I love pictures and find that they are such meaningful and artistic forms of capturing memories. With that being said, choosing a perfect wedding photographer was of my highest priority. After many long hours of searching for the right photographer, my husband and I chose Mario Nixon. We really loved his work seen through his web page. After establishing lines of communication, we knew that Mario was the right choice for us. As many vendors in the Bahamas seemed to operate on "Island Time," Mario was an appreciated exception. He always was very prompt in his responses and communicated effectively and efficiently. On our big day, he arrived on time and was ready to go. He demonstrated a laid-back, fun, personable, and friendly demeanor and was very flexible working with us, our wedding party, and guests. Once we received our photos, we were overly excited. Mario captured timeless, gorgeous, unique moments that we truly enjoy over and over again! We couldn't be happier with the beautiful gift of these amazing images! So many of our friends asked if Mario worked in the US, as they wanted him as their wedding photographer as well. A huge thanks goes out to Mario- he is amazing at what he does, and we would recommend him to anyone seeking a fantastic photographer!
