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.

Many brides have that special moment when they find “THE DRESS.” Don’t get me wrong, I loved my dress.
But, my butterflies-in-my-stomach, jump-up-and-down, do-a-little-dance moment came when I found “THE PHOTOGRAPHER.”
You know how it goes, you spend hours looking at website after website of photographers and none of them speak to you, inspire you, or even make you smile. Then…I found Adrian.
Adrian and his partner, Ivonne, are masters at their craft. I fell in love with his candid pictures and portraits of the bride and groom. I also love that he took a lot of portraits of individual guests. My absolute favorite part of his pictures is the lighting and softness. The pictures are romantic, warm, and draw you in.
From beginning to end, working with Adrian was wonderful. He responded to emails quickly. My husband and I did not want any posed pictures, so Adrian’s style was right up our alley. They worked their magic all night snapping away and were practically invisible. You didn’t even notice them. They seemed to be at just the right place at just the right time. And captured so many magical moments.
End result? Stunning pictures that truly captured our special day. Each time I look at them, I feel as though I’m there…in the moment. And a lot of my guests have stunning, beautifully lit portraits, too. I just love that.
I would choose Adrian and Ivonne again and again. They were the best decision we made in our wedding planning. Hands down.

Fernando é um profissional altamente qualificado. Comprometido com seus clientes. Criativo e habilidoso, sua fotografia é uma verdadeira arte! Amamos todas as fotos e foi muito difícil finalizar o álbum por conta da quantidade de fotos fantásticas que ele registrou. Atendeu e até antecipou todos os prazos estabelecidos em contrato. Super recomendo!
Elegir a los fotógrafos de nuestra boda fue una de las decisiones más claras que podíamos tener, ¡sin duda alguna tenían que ser ellos! Fernando y María Ángeles, dos vecinos de nuestra localidad cuyo trabajo como profesionales no tiene que envidiar a ningún otro fotógrafo, ni a nivel nacional, me atrevería a decir.
Hicimos nuestra preboda en Roma, con propuesta de Fernando. Nos pareció una locura pero, ¿por qué no?, ¡a fin de cuentas esos momentos de locura son los que nos dan vida! Después de vivir la experiencia y de ver el resultado, pensé que no podríamos asombrarnos aún más, ¡es realmente alucinante!
Pero es que con su buen hacer profesional, la pasión y constancia que le ponen a todo, el afán de superación, y la gran calidad humana que tienen, se superan con creces con cada trabajo que realizan. Son capaces de captar lo menos esperado, lo más emotivo, ¡el color, la luz, los momentos!
Por supuesto, enormemente agradecidos, tanto con su trabajo, como con su trato, porque realmente son dos adorables y encantadoras personas. ¡Ni que deciros tiene que las fotos de la boda son espectaculares!
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.
Ao escolher quem registraria os momentos do meu casamento, pensei em alguém que fotografasse com o coração, eu não queria apenas fotos, queria que a emoção do momento ficasse para a eternidade. Ao ver as fotos ainda na máquina durante a festa, já tive certeza de que tinha feito a escolha certa. Agora, quando recebo uma primeira amostra, fiquei muito surpresa, pois superou todas as expectativas. Muito obrigada Guilherme por ter feito parte do meu sonho. Você é um super profissional, desde à sua postura no salão enquanto nos preparávamos até a chegada das fotos! Não canso de dizer: Obrigada, obrigada, obrigadaa!

Great team, excellent results
Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom. Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos. Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly: whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it. And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers. This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be. We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form. Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”

Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.
If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage.
Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.
The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.
I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.
Ivan & Jenny.
