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.

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

Choosing James McCoy to be part of our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made during the planning process. James has a way of capturing just the right moments. Not only do we have amazing images to remind us of our special day, but James was truly a pleasure to work with. He is professional and easy to communicate with and truly listens to what you are wanting. I highly recommend using James McCoy for your wedding or event!!

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We just got back from Italy a few days ago, and Adamo took our proposal and engagement photos along the Amalfi Coast on May 13, 2014. He is a fabulous photographer! He really went above and beyond - he drove us from our hotel in Sorrento out to Positano & Ravello to take photographs, even though it took most of the day.

He already had identified places to photograph us. Each location was more stunning than the last, and the photographs were incredible. He is a very talented photographer. In addition to posed shots, he also took some great humorous candids in the convertible and in a fruit market which we loved. He recommended a beautiful plaza with sculptures overlooking the coastal cliffs for my fiance to propose, and our proposal photographs are stunning.

It was a truly magical and surreal day, a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Adamo captured it perfectly in our photographs. And he sent us all the 500 photos just 4 days later! There are just no words to describe how fantastic he is. We are so glad we chose him as our photographer. We will look at these photographs for the rest of our lives, and remember our special day.

We were so lucky to have a 5 star venue and 5 star meal matched by a 5 star photography service end to end - if you put in half of the effort you put in we would have been happy so you can imagine how delighted we are with all your extra effort! Thanks Mark. Caroline & John

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi everyone,

 

We have booked Adamo to be our wedding photographer in June based on all the excellent reviews for him. I just wondered if anyone would be willing to show some of their wedding photos - I'd really like to see some examples of his work as many people say his website does not do him justice.

 

Many Thanks

Emma

Bima Kuntoaji Adhitya, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Finally we had a family photoshot with Bima Adhitya. Bima was our wedding photographer 4 years ago. Our family photoshot was taken at Uluwatu, Bali. It took around 1 hour to go to our destination and my son, Ando, became cranky but Bima and his beautiful wife Nina helped us to relax and successfully captured our best and natural moments. Through his magic touch Bima managed to take lots of amazing shots. It was an unforgettable photoshot and wouldn’t happend without Bima’s help. We send our greatest gratitude for Bima and his wife. Thank you Bima for the photoshot.

Julien Leveau, Puerto Vallarta - Mexico

 

Julien in my opinion is not a wedding photographer but an artist. As a bride I could not have been happier with my wedding pictures as they captured the essence of every moment of my wedding day. The photographs are simply outstanding. I was fortunate to have traveled to Puerto Vallarta a couple of months before the wedding to plan my perfect day with my mother and we had the pleasure of meeting Julien during our trip. We hired him during our meeting not only because he was highly recommended and we had previously seen samples of his work on his blog but most importantly we hired him because he was friendly and incredibly passionate about his work. And now that the wedding is behind us, we could have not made a better decision. During the wedding day he was everywhere capturing every moment; and now every picture tells a story. On the day of the wedding, Julien and his assistant were on time, prepared, and came with a flexible and super friendly attitude. Julien in my honest opinion is the absolute best photographer in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas and he charges a fair price for his work. When I met with him he set up realistic expectations on when I was supposed to receive my pictures and he delivered before the deadline, which I was incredibly happy about. 

To any bride out there looking for a phenomenal photographer, Julien is your guy!!! It was great meeting him before the wedding but looking back now, it was unnecessary as his passion for his work provides you as a bride with stunning photographs of your wedding. 

Thank you Julien on behalf of my husband and I and all our wedding guests and family who loved your work!

Am 19.08.2014 haben wir unsere Kirchliche Hochzeit gefeiert. Einen wirklich guten Video- und Fotografen zu finden stand natürlich ganz oben auf der Liste. Im Internet sind wir zufällig auf Volodimir und Igor gestoßen und waren direkt von ihren Fotos und Videos begeistert. Die Organisation war unkompliziert, zur Hochzeit sind alle pünktlich gekommen, die Atmosphäre war offen und sehr positiv! Alle Gäste hatten Spaß mit den Fotografen und strahlen auf allen Bildern. Die Fotos sind einfach traumhaft geworden und beim Video stehen mir immer Tränen in den Augen. Wir können IVASH Photography nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für so tolle Erinnerungen!
