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.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"

A true professional, creative and knows to capture the right moments. Very nice pictures for a good price and a very pleasant cooperation. - Maarten & Roxane

Lukas GUILLAUME, Toulouse, France

We had the privilege to have Lukas take our photos on our wedding day on the 25th July 2015 in the Jardin des Martels and then the Moulin de Nartaud in France. Despite the quirky wedding format with opted for, and thus the very early start and consequently long day ahead, Lukas was very understanding and adaptable to our needs. He is a very nice guy who got along with every one involved on the day and genuinely enjoys what he's doing and the quality of is work is beyond reproach. The photos all look very natural and never forced or staged, he just hides in plain sight and takes the perfect shot at the perfect moment without being in the way. We were especially impressed by the fact that he managed to prepare a diaporama/slideshow with key photos and a tastefully chosen music on the very same evening for all the guests to enjoy at the end of the meal, and without fail it impressed all the guests with a lot of laughter, "ooh's" and "aah's" and also a few tears. We also can't say enough good about his commitment and availability afterwards; he is always very prompt to answer any questions you may have and will go the extra mile to keep you happy. I can say with confidence that anyone choosing his services will be completely satisfied.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

After the wedding is over and the memories begin to fade, photographs are a special way to remember the moments of such an important occasion. Adrian and Ivonne do an exceptional job capturing candid shots and the emotion that goes with it.

After falling in love with his photos from his website, my husband and I were able to “meet” Adrian via Skype, where he answered all our questions and explained his process of shooting a wedding.

His soft and quiet demeanor was great; most of the time you didn’t even know he was there, and he was able to capture you right in the moment – not stiff or posed. What you get are beautiful, genuine, emotional photographs. I find myself looking through our photos often and am transported back to that moment, that feeling.

I would highly recommend Adrian and Ivonne.

Jeannine Pohl, 676 Smith Ave S St. Paul, MN 55107

"Booking Jeannine as our photographer was perhaps one of the best wedding decisions my (now) husband and I made. It was apparent from the beginning (the introductory consultation) that Jeannine exceeded all expectations. Initially, I was drawn to Jeannine because of her creativity and her vision. The photos that I had seen were unparalleled and inspiring. I am a bit unconventional myself, and her fresh innovative twist on photography lent itself well to the vision I had for my big day. In fact, I could not have been more accurate, the photos exceeded all expectations and she is truly a visionary!

All that being said, what made me inevitably book Jeannine went far beyond her innovative eye; it was her charm, interpersonal skills, genuine passion for weddings/photography, etc. I have had numerous friends complain about their wedding photographers because of their lack of organization, their low quality photos, or their anxiety-provoking demeanor; however these things DO NOT characterize Jeannine in the least. In fact (and I kid you not), all of these friends have approached me since my wedding to comment on how lovely, creative, and organized Jeannine was (and this was before ever seeing any proofs)! Furthermore, many of these friends have now asked for Jeannine’s contact information for potential engagement/wedding photos. Now if that is not an endorsement, I do not know what is!

In sum, Jeannine’s work is some of the best I have ever seen and I believe this is a result of her uncanny ability to form genuine and meaningful relationships with her clients, her one-of-a-kind approach to the arts and photography, and her commitment to making your wedding day the absolute best it can be. I strongly encourage anyone looking for a wedding photographer to check out Jeannine, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!"

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna Antichi is fantastic! We hired Susanna for our wedding and we have no regrets! At our first meeting (via skype), she was gracious enough to help us draft an early wedding day schedule and talked about the logistics of how the day would run in regards to the photography. She definitely helped calm our nerves over worries about the big day. During the meeting in Mexico ( the day before the weeding and trust me it was a very stressful day), she also showed samples of her previous work as well as answered all our discerning questions. She offered us exceptional value and she was very responsive in our subsequent communication and meetings. I was skeptical when Susanna told us that she was confident that she would be able to capture all our moments without any additional help, but she was right! On our wedding day, Susanna comprehensively captured all our candid and emotion filled expressions of us and our family and friends! We were so impressed on how she was able to capture such raw emotions of joy, love and even sadness! She stayed with us until the end!!! It seemed like she was also in two places at once! Susanna was also excellent at taking group photo shots. She was very professional, arranging people around and giving people direction to produce the best possible shot. The finished photos were personally delivered on-time. Susanna created the most amazing, classic photo albums as well as the soft copies on USB (along with a slideshow with music from our wedding!). She send us couple presents, such as calendar for 2016 and mini-albums. It was so kind of her…I just can’t say thank you enough for everything that she has done for us All in all, Susanna is passionate about her work. It felt as if Susanna was family at our wedding and it seemed like she was truly enjoying being a part of it. She was friendly and accommodating and I would recommend her to anyone without a doubt!

Dominique Shaw, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hey There

 

 

 

I got married in the UK. A lovely barn within a farm.

 

 

 

My Twin sister had previously had Adamo photograph her wedding in Amalfi so when it came to me selecting a photographer, I struggled to find anyone who could compare with the quality of Adamo's work. But I did have reservations about our albums looking very similar.

 

 

 

So finally I succombed to 'wanting the best' and hired Adamo.

 

 

 

Now that the wedding is over and I have my album in my hands - Im sooooo glad for that decision.

 

 

 

Adamo's work is by far the best I have ever seen!! The quality of the album he produces is something very very special and something that I dont think can be replicated very easily.

 

 

 

And it turned out, my album (though similar in what we asked for) was completely different to my sisters.... it was unique (which is what we all want - right??)

 

 

 

But honestly, though this is what we all want..... a beautiful photo album to help remember our special day..... the best of Adamo is Adamo himself.

 

 

 

During the wedding preparations, he is the best type of supplier to work with.... very understanding, patient and requires little management. Anything you ask of Adamo, he is willing to help you with and you never have to ask twice!!!

 

 

 

On the wedding day itself, Adamo breezes through the day like an unseen artist capturing moments that even you wont remember!! There is no hassle with Adamo, no infringement of your space on the day..... he just walks around and finds those perfect shots.

 

 

 

In addition, he is the nicest person you'll eve meet. My whole family fell in love with him and his gentile nature.

 

So as far as recommendations go, Adamo is top of my list when it comes to wedding suppliers!!

Oh and one last thing..... I decided not to get a Photographer and Videographer for my wedding - I just went for a Photographer. Tough call but my budget was wearing thin towards the end. After receiving my album from Adamo, I was soooooo happy with that decision as Adamo's work told the story of my day - without needing a video!!
