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.

Rinke is really an expert! Amazing pictures, great compositions and a very professional approach The wedding photos are breathtaking. - Richard & Jane
"Jason was our wedding photographer this year and was absolutely fantastic. We really wanted someone to capture the story of our day and not have a massive list of staged photographs with our guests hanging around waiting for them all to be done! This is exactly what we got. We love looking through our CD of photos as every single one has captured a story or special moment from the day. Jason is so talented at getting different angles and reflections as well as capturing sacred moments shared with family and friends. No request is too big or small. We can't believe some of the photos that were taken as we don't even remember having a camera pointed at us.
We are currently choosing which photos to go into the album and we are taking what seems like forever to decide as there are just too many fantastic ones to choose from. It's a really tough job. Again we can't believe how quick the turn around is... we had preview shots the next day and 50 photos to look at whilst on honeymoon. On arriving back a week after the wedding the full 260 photos were on disk (in both viewing and printing mode) ready for us to see. Unbelievable - I have never heard of any other company having such a short turnaround but still with amazing quality.
Lastly - if the budget can stretch we would definitely recommend the pre-wedding/engagement shoot. We were so thrilled with the photos from this. We managed to get our parents Christmas presents from the photos and have our own canvas from this on the wall. Plus it is great to work with Jason and get to know him and used to the whole situation before the day of the wedding.
Don't give it a second thought... book. If we could do it all over again we would book Jason in a heartbeat. Thanks again Jason for your incredible work." Amy and Andy Leftley.
Mario was such a pleasure to work with during our wedding, we absolutely love how our photos came out. Everyone who has seen them has been in awe at how beautiful they are. I have heard over and over that they are the best wedding photos anyone has seen yet. People can see in our photos how much fun my husband and I were having and can see how in love we are. Mario brought that all out in his photos. Very impressed with everything. Anytime I emailed Mario he got right back to me. We received our discs only a few weeks after the wedding and I was able to look at the proofs through his site within two weeks which was great!
I would highly recommend Mario to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. I was very picky about who we hired and did a lot of research prior to finding him and I am so happy we ended up hired him.
Michelle and Trent were AMAZING! They were extremely professional and friendly, and they made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken. Michelle and Trent were with us all day taking photos and they turned out absolutely incredible. We loved having two photographers on our... Read More wedding day because they were able to capture the same situation/photo from different angles. We had a blast with Michelle and Trent; they were constantly making us laugh and it really felt like they cared about our wedding day as much as we did. We had many compliments from our wedding party and other guests on the quality of photos and professionalism from Michelle and Trent. Their photos are truly unmatched, and we believe we could not have chosen a better pair to photograph our wedding. We would highly recommend their services!!
Owen photographed our wedding at the Don Pepe hotel in Marbella two weeks ago. Dealing with Owen was an absolute pleasure in the lead up to our wedding as he was great for keeping in touch to arrange everything and to make sure it all ran smoothly on the day!! I am surprised he did not charge me for wedding planner services as he gave me so many tips and suggestions in the run up which helped me massively when planning a wedding abroad!
We couldn't have been happier on the day as he made everyone completely at ease and all our guests commented on how professional he was and his incredible attention to detail while also blending into the background to capture so many natural moments as the day unfolded! We called him our own wedding ninja as every time we looked he was taking photographs from different angles in the corner, on the ground and above our heads! The pictures we got were just what we wanted as they perfectly captured the relaxed and fun atmosphere we were going for on the day!!
I would highly recommend Owen as a wedding photographer-you will definitely not be disappointed!!
“Felices y agradecidos con la vida por haberlos puesto en nuestro camino para captar “Nuestros Momentos” en el día más feliz, de verdad que se quedan cortas las palabras para expresarles la gratitud por ese trabajo tan maravilloso que realizaron, capturaron cada detalle, cada mirada, cada momento, toda nuestra complicidad…
Gracias infinitas a ti, a Sebas, a todo el equipo!!!
Sigan llenando de recuerdos hermosos por siempre a todos los afortunados que den con ustedes!”

“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests. I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special day.”
"Juan Pablo was a huge help! He is extremely well-organized and professional. Juan Pablo captured all of the funny, sweet and beautiful moments of our wedding. He helped us feel relaxed and comfortable. He chose unique and interesting locations that we wouldn't have thought of. I also appreciated his ability to communicate both in Spanish and English as this helped make our families feel comfortable. We could not have been more thrilled with our photos!"
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.
"Hallo lieber Stefan, wir haben die tolle Fotos von unserer Hochzeit bekommen und sind einfach sprachlos. Unglaublich schön, romantisch, kreativ......Echt TOP!"
