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.

Our wedding photos are amazing! The best photos i've ever seen of Matt and I, i don't know how Sandy and Odysseas done it! The professionalism and attention to detail was like nothing i'd ever witnessed. They went over and above for us. This couple are beautiful people inside and out! A real pleasure to have them as part of our day!
I love these!! You are are amazing! I've already been recommending you to others!!!

We just wanted to write and express our deepest appreciation for making our wedding day complete! To us, photography was one of the MOST important aspects of the wedding day and we are beyond happy with our photos! We knew you were the right people when we came across your website and read the reviews.
While there are many photographers available in Riviera Maya, we found that your artistic expression, photo retouching, and commitment to success were worth the extra investment to have you travel from Mexico City and photograph our wedding. This was the best investment we could have made for our wedding day!
All of our guests commented on how attentive you were and noticed the amount of photos and differentiated approaches you were taking throughout the day. Your passion for photography is truly evident in every photo. My friends say I am the pickiest person they know, and you managed to exceed my expectations! We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for high-quality photography. We are so happy we found you!

James was amazing! He is very professional while still being friendly and likable, so we felt very comfortable with him. Before the wedding day we went over all the shots that were most important to me and he did a great job capturing those for us, as well as many I never thought about. James delivered our pictures to us in about a week and a half and we were amazed at the beauty, quality and amount of pictures he was able to get. I will continue to use James for family photo shoots in the future and would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event.
“Queremos darte las gracias por haber capturado el día más feliz de nuestras vidas con unas imágenes tan diferentes y originales y así darnos una forma de volver a vivirlo cada que queremos y un extraordinario recuerdo para siempre.
Supiste estar en los momentos más importantes sin que tuviéramos que decirte nada y supiste capturar la alegría y el amor que nos acompañó esa noche y que volvemos a vivir cada que vemos una imagen de ese día.
Que Dios te bendiga” – Melisa y Juan

James at James McCoy Photography was wonderful to work with! He was exactly the type of photographer we were looking for! So laid back and easy to work with, while at the same time making sure he was able to get the best pictures possible! His work is absolutely beautiful and he has an eye for great picture opportunities! I would definitely recommend James McCoy Photography!!

“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests. I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special day.”
