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.

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
  They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

I am a photograph enthusiast! I love pictures and find that they are such meaningful and artistic forms of capturing memories. With that being said, choosing a perfect wedding photographer was of my highest priority. After many long hours of searching for the right photographer, my husband and I chose Mario Nixon. We really loved his work seen through his web page. After establishing lines of communication, we knew that Mario was the right choice for us. As many vendors in the Bahamas seemed to operate on "Island Time," Mario was an appreciated exception. He always was very prompt in his responses and communicated effectively and efficiently. On our big day, he arrived on time and was ready to go. He demonstrated a laid-back, fun, personable, and friendly demeanor and was very flexible working with us, our wedding party, and guests. Once we received our photos, we were overly excited. Mario captured timeless, gorgeous, unique moments that we truly enjoy over and over again! We couldn't be happier with the beautiful gift of these amazing images! So many of our friends asked if Mario worked in the US, as they wanted him as their wedding photographer as well. A huge thanks goes out to Mario- he is amazing at what he does, and we would recommend him to anyone seeking a fantastic photographer!

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico, while living on the eastern end of Long Island, was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. While I thought I had everything under control, my husband reminded me that we needed to find a wedding photographer.

We began the process by researching photographers within Playa del Carmen and/or the Riviera Maya area. We came across the name Adrian Bonet and his beautiful website of wedding photos. It was exactly what we both were looking for – candid shots with some formal ones mixed in. We wanted to capture the experience, gestures and overall excitement of not only us but also most importantly our guests.

The day of our wedding, Adrian and his assistant Ivonne, were exactly what we hoped for. They artistically captured moments that at times we had no idea about and neither did our guests, and we loved it! Adrian and Ivonne were calm, cool and collected and their candidly artistic photographs displayed just that.

My husband and I are so gracious and appreciative of how every single shot came to life and ecstatic to hear our loved ones talk about how much they cannot stop looking at our wedding photos. What great memories Adrian and Ivonne captured, and we are forever grateful.

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best regards,
Laura & Brook.

Dominique Shaw, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard

James Sturcke, Logroño, Spain

“The photos are spectacular. We love all of them!! They’re marvellous!! To make someone cry when they see a photo only happen when the image truly reflects the emotion of the moment. We also laughed lots seeing some of them. We loved them. Wow!! You’re a great photographer!! A big hug and thanks for everything.” Laura, Logroño, La Rioja.

Ali Nishan, Local Male, Maldives

My husband and I love every single capture of our wedding. The pictures are absolutely wonderful. Nishan did prove that he is the best there is in Maldives.

He is not only a superb photographer but also a great person to work with. Our outdoor photo shoot was threatened by bad weather with dark clouds and rain. Well, things not going as planned are a nightmare for any bride and groom. However, he was confident and gave us continuous hope that it would work out well. And, it did.

When we got to see the photos we were awed. We love them so much, they are our treasures. Everyone who saw them admired them. We are just so happy in selecting Nishan as our wedding photographer and we do recommend him for any couple looking for one. We thank you Nishan, for giving us our beautiful treasures.
