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.

Luis Miguel Hernández, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The Ocean Photo Weddings team is a great team that is professional, responsive and produces high quality work! They did an amazing job of capturing my wedding day, both in photos and on video. I loved that they produced great quality photos and captured all of the "special moments" without blocking our guests' view. Luis Miguel and his team were easy to get in contact with prior to our destination wedding and throughout our stay in Mexico. They made an effort to make my husband and I feel comfortable and special during our photo session. I 100% recommend that you choose them as your photography and videography vendor; you will not regret it!

Cadoret Ossama, Bordeaux, France

We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Ossa Photo and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Ossa’s photos.

Both of us were so comfortable with Ossa and his wife, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.

Owen, thank you for so beautifully capturing our wedding day at Tankardstown House, Co. Meath Ireland in June. When I came across your galleries I knew I loved your work; the light, elegance and style of photos. In the run up to the day I felt so comfortable and confident that you understood our style. Thank you for taking lots of photos that didn’t require any posing! The combination of documentary style photography and beautiful artistic shots of us is phenomenal! Oisin and I are simply in love with our photos from the day. Every time we look at them we’re just so happy because it captures both how beautiful and great craic the day was for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I highly recommend that everyone work you for any/ all occasion – wonderful experience and photos that we’ll look back on for years and years to come.
