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.

Olga, hello !!! Once again a huge thank you for the photos, such touching moments were experienced !!!!))) We only just looked at the pictures because we haven’t had the time.


Monika Zaldo, San Sebastian - Donostia, Spain

My wife and I were lucky to find Monika. Like all couples we were trying to avoid those cliche wedding photos everyone has seen too many times. In Monika we found a stunning talent. Her artistic eye and creative talent made for amazing pictures and memories. And best of all she was wonderful to work with. Thanks again Monika!!

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"By far, hands down, no question our favorite vendor we used at our wedding!! Jesse and Moira are not only spectacular photographers with the most unique perspective and "voice" as photographers but they are great people. So easy to work with, personable yet professional. They were the people I was least worried about throughout our wedding day. They always come with new, innovative ideas to really capture what makes your relationship unique. You will NOT get generic wedding photos, but gorgeous and epic moments coupled with the smallest details. They were always on point with communication, letting us know timelines, when to expect our photos to be ready etc. which was so refreshing. They are so thoughtful about their process and make every effort to capture everything you want while also remaining as much "in the background" as possible. I would recommend them to anyone!!"

"Thank you" does not seem sufficient to explain how grateful we are that you captured our special day. The amount of compliments we've received further solifies how lucky we were to have you as our photographer. Each picture tells part of the story that day and brings tears to my eyes to see how perfectly you captured the joy and love we felt from everyone there. Thank you so much. -Brooke & Nick

Mark Capilitan, Sligo, Ireland

Myself & Clare would just liek to say a big massive thank you. The album is absolutely fantastic, you really are exceptional at your work. We could not be happier and believe your work really does stand out, head and shoulders above other photographers out there. It is a work of art you have created and one which we will cherish. Thanks again. Clare & Kevin

Shayne Bampton, Kingston Ontario

When we started planning our wedding, photography was near the bottom of our list. After 14 years together we had our fair share of photos, and the typical wedding photos were not our style.  We did, however, appreciate and value the idea of capturing our wedding to be able to reflect back and remember the day, so we were struggling satisfying both of these perspectives.

Shayne had a great vibe, professional but laid back.  Looking at his portfolio we could tell he had an eye for great photos. Our fears of boring, cold, lifeless photos went away
