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.

Juan Pablo Velasco, Quito, Ecuador

"Juan Pablo was a huge help!  He is extremely well-organized and professional.  Juan Pablo captured all of the funny, sweet and beautiful moments of our wedding.  He helped us feel relaxed and comfortable.  He chose unique and interesting locations that we wouldn't have thought of.  I also appreciated his ability to communicate both in Spanish and English as this helped make our families feel comfortable.  We could not have been more thrilled with our photos!"

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, 

We LOVE the pictures!  thank you both so much for doing an amazing job!  I can't stop looking at them.  You truly captured the day and we couldn't have hoped for any more :)

Thanks,
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!!!

Best,

Rachel & Nikki

Many thanks again for your great work!

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

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

Wanneer je Rinke kiest als trouwfotograaf ben je verzekerd van het vastleggen van de spontane en emotievolle momenten op jullie dag. Nauwelijks merkbaar aanwezig, maar heeft de lach en de traan goed vast weten te leggen. Daarnaast zie je zijn liefde voor foto’s en oog voor detail terug in het album. - Niels & Luciënne

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is an amazing photographer. After looking at her website, my husband and I contacted her and asked if we could video chat. She immediately set something up for us. Right away she made us very comfortable. She was extremely approachable, flexible and understanding with all the questions we had. I was very nervous about having a photographer who lived in another country (we are from New York, but planned to have our wedding in Mexico). Susanna was more than helpful during this long distance process; she stayed in constant contact with us through email, and even provided us with additional resources during our planning process. During her travels, she made a stop in New York and was able to accommodate an engagement shoot in Central Park for us. The pictures came out amazing, even more than my husband and I could have asked for. We were more than excited when it was time for the wedding. Susanna did not disappoint. She met with us a few days before the wedding to discuss last minute logistics. The day of, Susanna was right on time and my husband and I let her capture whatever she thought was best. We were so glad that we did because looking through our pictures now we are amazed at how beautifully Susanna was able to capture our day. Her pictures brought me to tears as she was able to capture the love, romance, passion, fun and once in a lifetime moments that we now can cherish forever. I am thankful for her services and would highly recommend her for any occasion.

Queremos darte las gracias por haber capturado el día más feliz de nuestras vidas con unas imágenes tan diferentes y originales y así darnos una forma de volver a vivirlo cada que queremos y un extraordinario recuerdo para siempre.
Supiste estar en los momentos más importantes sin que tuviéramos que decirte nada y supiste capturar la alegría y el amor que nos acompañó esa noche y que volvemos a vivir cada que vemos una imagen de ese día.
Que Dios te bendiga

Fabio Azanha, Lisbon, Portugal

How fortunate to have found you Maria and Fábio! Our wedding had two parts, a day of Indian celebrations and another with the civil ceremony. When we had the great luck to meet you, we felt a strong chemistry, and also strong conviction that we had found the ideal photographers for our wedding. The fact that we changed the first party date to fit into your busy schedule, should  give you an idea of just how much we liked you. We really wanted our wedding to tell a story ! And we had  you exceeded all our expectations. The photos are pure art! I was a model for a few years, so  I met some good photographers ... and I can say that your photos of our wedding are the most beautiful I've seen. It was a great pleasure to witness your skils being put into practice! Thank you Maria and Fabio!
