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.

Testimonials
Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

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!!

Simply the best photographer around! Her incredibly artistic eye does not miss one second of your journey, and she honestly goes above and beyond for her clients. One feels like family. Thank you for our beautiful images!

José Corpas, Seville, Spain

We recently had our wedding day and trash the dress photos with Nuar Fotografía. Well, what can we say ... WOW is a good start! ...

Life time memories captured perfectly and beautifully by two amazing people; not only professionally but also personally.

From the very start of our communication, Jose and Cris created a sincere connection with us. When looking at their photos we had no worries about the quality they would produce. However, living in the UK and marrying abroad, we were still apprehensive about choosing the right photographer but their communication was fantastic throughout and they immediately made us feel at ease ... We knew we'd picked the right people for our wedding!

Their after service also went above and beyond our expectations and they did everything they could to ensure we were given the most beautiful memories for life, in two stunning albums. On the day, Jose and Cris were complete professionals. We didn't even know they were there half the time and only now know by looking at the amazing pictures they captured without us realising!!!

We can not recommend these two people highly enough and also class them as our friends now. We are forever in their debt for capturing our special day with such magical photography! Thank you Nuar Fotografia!!!!!

Dear Daniel and Marnitz,

No words will ever be enough to thank the both of you for capturing every special moment of our wedding day.
The love and passion you have for photography shines through, and that is what made us feel so comfortable for choosing you as our wedding photographers.

From the day myself and Dennis met you and Marnitz, we knew we’re in good hands.
Thank you for being professional and very helpful form the gun.

Myself as a woman appreciated it the most, that not one of you ever made me feel uncomfortable, in fact I felt very confidant and beautiful. And that is what every bride should feel like.

We would highly recommend you to anyone we know and do not know, because you ARE the best in the business.

Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for capturing our special day, with your help, and professionalism we now have photos and memories to keep with us forever.

Love,
Dennis & Lezanri.

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

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.

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Our wedding day was a dream come true and Mario beautifully captured every moment!
Mario was super helpful every step of the way. We do not live in Nassau (we are from NYC) and during my planning process Mario was always available for a chat or a string of emails. He made me feel confident in him from the beginning without even meeting in person. I do not like to have my picture taken and was a fairly nervous bride about that. Mario was able to quell my nerves and our shots are amazing. The photos are stunning - I cannot stop looking at them. The night we received our disk of images I was mesmerized. Each shot was trumped by the next. Our wedding album will be a tome of every shot he took that day because it's too hard to choose the "best" ones.
Mario caught private, intimate moments of beauty. He was able to get amazing shots of my nephews (ages 2 & 4) that are so stunning you would think that he actually got them to hold still. The photos of our guests at the reception are magically fun. He was able to capture fun moments and crazy dancing shots that perfectly sum up what a great day it was. In addition our reception venue was perfectly mood lit - but it was dark. If you could see our pictures you would think the venue was very bright - but his flash was not intrusive at all! Actually, some of our guests (when they saw the pictures) said they didn't even remember him being there to take that shot. Not that you want to loose Mario (he's super fun & funny) but I think it's important that the photographer blends in and becomes a part of the surrounding and can just get the essence of your event. And that is exactly what he did.
Wedding photos are mementos that are to be treasured forever. I truly cannot express how much I love our wedding photos. I would recommend Mario Nixon to anyone who asks and am forever grateful that he was there on our special day.
