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.

Adrian & Ivonne:

We just wanted to write and express our deepest appreciation for making our wedding day complete! To us, photography was one of the MOST important aspects of the wedding day and we are beyond happy with our photos! We knew you were the right people when we came across your website and read the reviews.

While there are many photographers available in Riviera Maya, we found that your artistic expression, photo retouching, and commitment to success were worth the extra investment to have you travel from Mexico City and photograph our wedding. This was the best investment we could have made for our wedding day!

All of our guests commented on how attentive you were and noticed the amount of photos and differentiated approaches you were taking throughout the day. Your passion for photography is truly evident in every photo. My friends say I am the pickiest person they know, and you managed to exceed my expectations! We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for high-quality photography. We are so happy we found you!

Great team, excellent results

Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom.  Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos.  Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly:  whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it.  And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers.  This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be.  We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form.  Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”

We were very fortunate to have Ossa to document our wedding / family trip to Luberon area.
He is personal, sincere and creative. His unique perspective and sensitivity for the light and surroundings have led to amazing photographs.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 2-day photography sessions with him!

That’s true!

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.

"WOWEE ZOWEE!! HOLY KAMOLY! HAPPINESS AND JOY! HAPPINESS AND JOY! We are so amazed. First of all, 1100 photos! 1100! That in itself is so incredible. And they are FABULOUS. Honestly, we only had the chance to make it through the first 750 before John had to head off to an improv thing but they were 750 fabulous, fantastic, wonderful, gorgeous photos. We were crying and holding hands and laughing and marveling, marveling, marveling. We are so impressed with the artistry, the framing, the composition, the use of light -- you definitely have some magic techniques for dealing with difficult and changing light! We are so, SO excited to view the rest and to spend many, many joyous hours in the coming weeks and months choosing photos, making prints, making albums . . . oh, the joy that lies ahead! You did such a fantastic job. Thanks again for being such a warm and wonderful presence at our wedding -- and for taking such stunning, stunning photos!" show less
