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.

"For my spectacular, a professional and what stands out is that despite the youth shows much knowledge of work, met our expectations, excellent work" Delia and Joao 

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We used Adamo as the photographer for our wedding in Tuscany in late October 2012. We couldn't have been happier with Adamo's presence at our wedding, he made us feel comfortable and he had a great sense of humour. We had pictures taken in the Siena Town Hall where we were married and then Adamo chose some amazing spots in the countryside on the way back to our Villa to take photos. We now have some beautiful photos taken in a spectacular and truly Tuscan setting. The photos back at the Villa Stomennano that we had hired for the wedding celebrations are gorgeous. Adamo's photos of my Husband and I are fantastic and we have some gorgeous family and group photos which really capture the excitement and happiness of the day.

Thanks Adamo we are so happy that you were the photographer for our wedding day.

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.”

Kristin Reimer, New York City, New York

From Bracha Meshchaninov – mother of bride

Thank G-d we were blessed this past summer to be able to make two weddings, one in Crown Heights and one just outside Monsey. We used Kristen Reimer and her partner Steve of Photomuse for both and we could not have been happier. Although Photomuse had not been familiar with all the details of an Orthodox wedding, we filled them in on the program of events, from the beddeking and tish up to the final sheva bracha at benching! Not only were Kristen and Steve respectful of all of our customs, and a pleasure to work with, but they captured every relevant detail with a fresh appreciation for the artistry in every moment. With their ability to be creative as well as accurate we got wonderfully artistic and original records of two very special events! I have no hesitation in recommending them to any one considering using their services. For an Orthodox wedding in particular they certainly know now what to expect and can be counted on not to miss or skip any significant moment!!

Creative, natural and fun loving photographers!!!
Jorge and I are both artistic people. Jorge loves photography and I am a professional artist. Jorge and I organized and designed our wedding. Our theme for our wedding was "art" so I hand painted and designed all of our save the dates, invites, menus, table numbers, favors, programs, wedding hangers, cake topper etc on canvas. Jorge designed our cake, made all the wooden easels for the canvases and helped designed the centerpieces and colors of the wedding. So for us having a wedding photographer that captured details, little moments in a natural and glamorous way was really important. We wanted a photographer that would capture who we are, our relationship and our love. This was extremely important.

We literally looked days on end for a photographer that caught our attention, that we think would tell our story the best. After countless hours of looking we found Take it Photo here on Best Destination Weddings. It was late in the night and Jorge was getting tired of looking but when I showed him their website he instantly lit up and said hire them. I looked at him and yes ok Im going to send them an email right now. Not only did they reply within hours but they were friendly and fun loving. We both knew in our hearts that they were the ones 

Jorge and I and our guests were staying at The Grand Mayan and had our ceremony half an hour away in PDC in the main Catholic Church on 5th Avenue. We then had a parade that was about 30 mins long to our reception at El Taj Oceanfront and Beachside. Not only did Lupe and Agustin show up early but they were energenic and excited to be there. It instantly felt like they were long time friends. Agustin stayed with Jorge in the morning while he was getting ready and Lupe spent the time with me and came with my family and I in the car to the church. We were late getting to the church because of traffic and when we arrived to PDC the street where the church was located on was closed by the police so Lupe talked to them and tried to get us through even though it was closed. Unfortunately we could get through and I had to walk a few blocks in the hard wind and light rain but Lupe calmed me down and assured us that it would be ok. SHE IS AWESOME! Couldnt thank her enough.

After the ceremony the wind was still strong but the rain went away and we took family photos. Lupe and Agustin interacted with the family great and really tried to get them involved to make it a fun experience for everyone including the shy babies. After that Jorge and I went with them to take some one on one photos and we had a blast. Jorge and I are huge animal lovers and it seemed like everywhere we went there was dogs following us. so cute. Lupe and Agustin captured these moments great.

Just before the reception we met all the guests and our mariachi band back at the church on 5th and started our parade to our reception down on 5th. We got permission from the city police to hand out tequila and dance our way down the streets. It was the highlight of our day. Not only were our guest so excited for the music and the drinks but so were the by standers who came and joined us and the resturaunts who stopped us and gave us shots and drinks to congratulate us. Since the parade was really fast moving and high energy, Lupe and Agustin had to move around a lot and keep up. They did a great job of taking action photos. Its great to have two photographers in moments like this so that nothing is missed 

At our reception they mingled with guests, took some great photos of the location, of the people and of the night. They had their own lighting and made the night photos really stand out. They were just amazing and all of our guests loved them. Almost everyone came up to us and told us how great they were and how they couldnt wait to see the photos. We are so happy to have had them for the day and for our trash the dress. I highly recommend them to anyone. Their packages are great (we got the digital package), the photos are outstanding and natural and they are truly amazing people inside and out. Don't regret not hiring them for your special occasion!
