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.

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.

Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

"I received the pictures yesterday and I'm obsessed with them! I can't stop starring at them - they are so great! You did an amazing job and were really great to work with too! The wedding went by so fast so now I get to relive it all through the pictures which has been so much fun Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"My husband and I continue to be over the moon happy with our wedding photos. J. La Plante Photo was without a doubt our favorite vendor that we worked with at our wedding. Jesse and Moira captured all the moments so beautifully. Their photos are spectacular. In addition, they are super easy and flexible to work with. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but they made photos stress free. We found them very reliable as they responded to all our emails and phone calls promptly. They have a nice laid back and professional approach which makes them a pleasure to be around the day of the wedding. My guests all commented on how they hardly noticed them, yet they captured all the important moments. Bottom line, they are just good people, and you won't regret having them photograph your wedding."

Robert and Yulia

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
  They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"We absolutely loved having Moira and Jesse photograph our wedding. Not only were they professional and extremely good at what they do, they were also fun to hang out with and a pleasure to have around the day of our wedding. We chose them after seeing a friend’s wedding photos on Facebook. We got married at sunset on November 22nd and I wanted someone who had experience photographing sunset or night shots and Jesse La Plante Photography absolutely did. Our photos turned out beautiful and even better than we thought considering the weather was not cooperating with us. What Jesse and Moira captured with the wind and clouds was spectacular and we fell in love with the photos the minute we saw them. They also did a panoramic of the city scape view from our venue and included it in our photo album. Thanks Jesse and Moira for being a part of our wedding day and capturing the memories so beautifully."

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was completely unobtrusive and discreetly captured natural photographs throughout our day, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. If it's a reportage style you're after, then Jason is the photographer for you. I would recommend the reportage style for any couple that are self conscious, or don't want to take time out of their wedding for endless posed photos. Jason will however take set pieces if you ask him and I think it's good to have a few. We were really happy with both the set piece photos and the natural reportage style ones. It's nice to look at the moments that were captured and know that they were real." Lucy and Adam.

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

São tantos detalhes, tanta coisa para resolver antes do casamento e no grande dia nada pode dar errado, daí a importância na escolha do profissional que acompanhará e registrará esse grande momento de nossas vidas. Falar do Fernando é fácil. Grande profissional, dedicado, comprometido e de um olhar único sobre o que tem em volta, as cenas e os detalhes. Ficamos muitos felizes com o resultado do seu trabalho e o quanto abrilhantou desde o ensaio, making of da noiva, cerimônia e a festa do nosso casamento.

Kristopher Gerner, Wilmington, North Carolina

Having already seen Kristopher's work at my sister's wedding it was not even a question on who I wanted to use for our wedding. He was so accommodating on our wedding day and let us take pictures in a relaxing manner. No awkward poses and we also didn't have to wait around for him to get the job done! He covered the guys pre-ceremony, he covered the ceremony, and also the reception. We can't thank him enough!
