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.

James Sturcke, Logroño, Spain

“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.

Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

Owen photographed our wedding at the Don Pepe hotel in Marbella two weeks ago. Dealing with Owen was an absolute pleasure in the lead up to our wedding as he was great for keeping in touch to arrange everything and to make sure it all ran smoothly on the day!! I am surprised he did not charge me for wedding planner services as he gave me so many tips and suggestions in the run up which helped me massively when planning a wedding abroad!

We couldn't have been happier on the day as he made everyone completely at ease and all our guests commented on how professional he was and his incredible attention to detail while also blending into the background to capture so many natural moments as the day unfolded! We called him our own wedding ninja as every time we looked he was taking photographs from different angles in the corner, on the ground and above our heads! The pictures we got were just what we wanted as they perfectly captured the relaxed and fun atmosphere we were going for on the day!!

I would highly recommend Owen as a wedding photographer-you will definitely not be disappointed!!

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

Joanna is the best wedding photographer out there. She captured our wedding with such an artistic flare and intimate feeling. I still stare at all our pictures and find a new favorite every week. We loved working with Joanna so much that we had her take our maternity photos as well as our baby’s newborn photos. Again, she captured the moments beautifully and we will continue to use her as our family photographer to capture all our life moments. THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!!

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was completely unobtrusive and discreetly captured natural photographs throughout our day, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. If it's a reportage style you're after, then Jason is the photographer for you. I would recommend the reportage style for any couple that are self conscious, or don't want to take time out of their wedding for endless posed photos. Jason will however take set pieces if you ask him and I think it's good to have a few. We were really happy with both the set piece photos and the natural reportage style ones. It's nice to look at the moments that were captured and know that they were real." Lucy and Adam.

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.

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

We had such a fantastic experience with Joanna. She did our engagement and wedding photos and we can't even begin to describe how happy we are with the way they turned out! She was so fun and easy going and she was totally game for anything, even when we told her we wanted to do our engagement photos in a brewery! We knew from our first meeting with her that she was our photographer. She has a great eye and a knack for capturing beautiful lighting. We were also very happy with how quickly she responded to emails and how often she stayed in touch throughout the process. We absolutely love our wedding album and the wall art that we ordered and our parents really love their albums as well. The quality is fantastic and she worked hard to make sure we got our order in time for Christmas, which was much appreciated. We can't wait to work with Joanna again in the future... Thanks again for everything, you are awesome!!

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!!
