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.

The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.
"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"
"Die Bilder die wir bisher gesehen haben und die Albumvorschau gefallen uns unglaublich gut."+

"Flipping through our old wedding photos made us reminisce about Debra Zeller and her magical photographic touch. Debra took care of us for both our engagement session and also our wedding. She handled both events with aplomb. She is friendly, easy going, and perceptive.
We couldn't be more pleased with how our photos turned out. They definitely captured the moment. We trusted Debra to pick backgrounds and scenes without suggesting much. It was the right decision because we were in good hands. So many have complimented the photos and backdrops, and especially how unique they were.
Definitely recommended with our highest opinion."
Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".
"We just went through the pictures and we are absolutely thrilled! You have an amazing eye - the pictures are aesthetically beautiful, interesting and really captured the event perfectly. I knew you were good, and I knew my choice was good - but now I think my choice was positively inspired. There are literally too many good pictures: we don't know which ones to get prints of! Thank you so much for the incredible craftsmanship; you're a real artist."
I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.
We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.
We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.
On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.
The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.
I love these!! You are are amazing! I've already been recommending you to others!!!
Adrian & Ivonne:
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!

O trabalho do Fernando Longen foi do início ao fim de extremo profissionalismo e nos surpreendeu positivamente em todos os momentos, desde as primeiras fotos do ensaio pré casamento soube nos deixar a vontade resultando em fotos descontraídas desde o início, foi extremamente flexível em aguardar o dia que conseguíssemos o nosso tão esperado pôr-do-sol, e o resultado foi maravilhoso, graças a dedicação de Fernando sempre. No making of registrou tudo até os detalhes que não percebemos, e por fim no casamento, cada sentimento, cada sorriso, cada minuto está claramente evidenciado em todas as fotos que já recebemos eficientemente logo após o casamento, resumindo, só temos a agradecer e parabenizar!
