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.

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"Hiring Jesse and Moira was hands down the best decision we ever made when planning our wedding! They're the real deal. They are a real couple, with real unique ideas and a real passion for the art of photography. It all started with our fun engagement session that captured three of our favorite things: Mountains, dogs, and beers. Who wouldn't love that? All of our favorite things :)

On our wedding day, we were both extremely worried about the weather. It was ridiculously cold for June and waking up to rain and fog isn't every bride's dream. They assured us that the lighting was perfect for photos and they were so right. Once the fog finally cleared, they were able to capture a beautiful moment between my husband and I and the photograph was even more incredible than the moment itself. To this day, people still ask us if it is a painting because it looks that incredibly real and vivid. The lighting and mountainous back drop is absolutely perfect. Sometimes we look at the picture and think, "Is that really us?" It looks like it belongs in a magazine, no joke!

Not to mention that they were seamless. They captured the raw emotion of the events, the people and the memories that were created that day. Some of our favorite pictures are the candid shots that we didn't even notice were being taken. We couldn't have been happier with them and their outstanding work!"

Daniel, Gauteng, South Africa

Someone once asked me if I believe in Love at first sight ….. Well … Off course

First I met my husband, soulmate and best friend who I knew from the beginning was the one.
Then came Daniel Lardus my photographer. One Sunday morning he was doing a shoot for a client when I met him, but talk about LUCK!!

He showed me a few pictures and I just knew I had to have him…..For my wedding off course.

I was a wedding planner for a venue in Pretoria East at that time and I worked with a few photographers day in and day out but there was just something about him.
Im very peculiar on what type of photos I want, how long I wanted to spend on photos and I want to be able to choose how, when and were ( making life difficult for him ) but he really didn’t mind at all.
He is such an amazing photographer making you feel comfortable and being so professional at the same time I would recommend him to any bride as stress and being uncomfortable is one of the last things you need on the day … seeing as there is enough already.

His work is really something special, something different as he does every shoot according to who and what you are and want.

Brides take my word I would recommend him any time to anyone. Not only having met an amazing photographer but now also having a lifelong friend. Remember that photos last you a lifetime showing and telling your children and grandchildren about your special day. You can never go back and change it so make the right choice from the beginning.

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.

We would like to thank great, sympathetic and above all professional photographic couple John and Mary. Shooting was due to their approach is very relaxed and also very entertaining. We are happy that they have become an integral part of our so momentous day. They could be captured in the highest quality, so that the photos will come back in time, as if it was still June 11, 2011. For all of them from us includes a large THANKS.”
