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.

The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.
Oh, how lucky we were to have stumbled upon Maria and Fabio! One look at their stunning portfolio and we were completely captivated! True to their style, our wedding photos were breathtakingly beautiful! Vivid expressions, rich colors, innocent smiles and silent thoughts - they unintrusively captured every wonderful moment of our day. They are a great team together, complementing each other, very endearing and yet very professional. Thank you, Maria and Fabio, for gifting us such indelible memories of our wedding day!
Marcel and Meher, we cannot express how thankful we are for everything you have done for us! We will never forget any of the details of our wedding thanks to you! The whole experience was so much fun and the pictures are breathtakingly stunning. Marcel and Meher, you two are so sweet and kind. We love every picture, THANK YOU!

Dear Marcel and Meher,
Thank you both very much for these amazing photos.
We opened a bottle of wine and re-lived the wedding day through your photos, and we loved every single one of them (and there were some really funny, brilliant ones that made us laugh!)
Thank you again for being with us on the day!!

Hi Marcel and Meher,

Chrissy & Vince
Hi! Thank you so much for the pictures!! They are great!!!! It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day. Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Hi Marcel & Meher,
The pictures are truly spectacular!!! Thank you both so, so much. You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away. I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day. Can’t tell you how happy it made me. We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.
Thank you again!!!
Rachel & Nikki
Hi Marcel and Meher,

We really enjoyed having the both of you as our photographers and truly believe that you do exceptional work. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends and families. We are hoping to find some time in the near future to do another photo shoot and we'd love to hire you again.
Many thanks again for your great work!
Sharon and Chadd
These pictures are absolutely amazing! WE LOVE every single shot! Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding!

Marcel and Meher,
We are soooooo happy with the pictures!! All of the pictures are amazing! We have been looking at them over and over this morning. Thank you so much for your hard work- you both are so incredibly talented!

"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.
"Jeannine has been simply amazing! We had engagement pictures with her and then decided to have her shoot our wedding as well and we could not be happier! She is very professional, super easy to work with, and a downright talented photographer. Thanks to her we have some of our favorite moments captured in striking detail and can enjoy them for years to come. Just look through her galleries and I'm sure you'll love her work as much as we do."
'We have just received our wedding album and we absolutely LOVE it! Paul was so discrete on our wedding day and he has really captured the happiness of the day. We would recommend him without hesitation!'
Guilherme, sem palavras pra descrever o quão verdadeira estão nossas fotos, nós amamos cada minutinho desse dia e está tudo aí, na cara e no sorriso de cada uma delas, sem dúvida emoção transbordando pra todos os lados… Seu trabalho é realmente incrível e sua tranquilidade e jeitinho amigo é teu bem maior, obrigada por tudo e parabéns pelo profissionalismo, recomendo muito! Elisa e Gustavo
Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.
I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.
Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.
After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!
I’ll rate him with 5 stars.
We are very pleased to have you as a wedding photographer. Our vision were natural-looking, candid images, capturing the emotions of our wedding day. Jan Plachy and Marianna not only meet , but many times even exceeded our expectations. Shooting took place in a relaxed atmosphere, Jan and Marianna have a great professional but yet very human approach. Although both are quite reluctant to take pictures, initialnervousness soon faded. The result? Impressive photo with which we are extremely satisfied. Thank you!

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!”
