    Would you take a picture of us?

    the verb phrase is : to take a picture/pictures of
    As far as I know you cannot insert the complement between the elements of the verb phrase.

    I would like to hear some experts` opinions

    Would you take us a picture- this is possible colloquially, but it does not mean that the person will take a photograph of you, but for you.
