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.

“La magia de nuestro matrimonio logramos volverlo a vivir cada vez que miramos nuestras fotos, logradas por Lui Cano y su equipo de trabajo. Las miradas, la complicidad y el amor, unido a los paisajes, la luz del día y la experiencia en este tipo de fotografía hacen que nos devolvamos en el tiempo y nos enamoremos cada día mas…” – Carolina y Felipe
WAUW wat zitten er mooie foto's tussen. Bedankt Rinke! - Leon & Denise
"Hallo lieber Stefan, wir haben die tolle Fotos von unserer Hochzeit bekommen und sind einfach sprachlos. Unglaublich schön, romantisch, kreativ......Echt TOP!"

O Fernando é um super profissional! Desde que o contratamos, com mais de 1 ano para o evento, foi muito atencioso conosco. Tivemos que remarcar algumas vezes nosso pré wedding devido a termos poucos horários livres e muita chuva e ele deu um jeito de fazer o ensaio, editar e ainda postar no blog tudo com 1 semana de antecedência do evento e o ensaio ficou maravilhoso! Fora as fotos incríveis do casamento, sempre com muita amabilidade e paciência. Quando a pessoa coloca carinho e amor em seu trabalho, o resultado não tem como ser outro, tudo perfeito.
"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."
Mario exceeded all of our expectations by leaps and bounds! From our very first e-mail to communications after the wedding he has always responded to all questions, promptly, professionally and with good humor. He was also absolutely wonderful to work with in person! Somehow , he managed to disappear into the crowd but was always ready to unobtrusively snap a photo when a great moment popped up or a group of guests asked for shot. Throughout the night several people told us that they wish they'd had him for their weddings! We liked him so much, that if he weren't already our photographer, we would have loved to have him at the wedding as a guest!
As far as his skills as a photographer go, his portfolio more than speaks for itself. We absolutely love our photos and how he managed to capture not only shots incorporating the beauty of the island but also our hapiness and love for each other! We're amazed at how vibrant they are and I can't imagine any way to more completely capture the feel of ceremony and evening. Whenever we look back at them in the years to come, they'll instantly take us back to how it felt to be newly married and celebrating with our friends and family!
If you're considering Mario for your event absolutely hire him, you simply won't find anyone better!
I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.
We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.
We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.
Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how he captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.
Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.
Thanks so much Daniel!!!

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.

I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.
We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.
We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.
On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.
The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.
"Marine Carissima, non hai idea di quanti complimenti ricevo per l'album. te ne cito alcuni: "è pazzesco, mai visto nulla di simile" "è in assoluto l'album più bello che io abbia mai visto" siamo così soddisfatti! è tutto merito tuo! grazie Marine, sei stata davvero preziosa e soprattutto hai colto a pieno i nostri desideri! un abbraccio ,"
