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 Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.

If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.

The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.

I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

Best regards,
Ivan & Jenny.

Lukas Guillaume, Miami, Florida

We would like to tell you not one but many many many very sincere and so well deserved thank you!!!

Thanks to you, we've in picture what we really lived and not only images of what happened. You've managed to capture the atmosphere of our special day and every time we look at the photos we can feel again all these emotions! That's such a gift! And most impressively, you’ve made that happen effortlessly with such discretion, professionalism and enthusiasm.

I think everyone of our guests was under your spell after the video projected at the end of the day! We had so many compliments!

With the amazing “Engagement Session” in London few months before the wedding day, we’ve got to know each other a little bit more and you’ve made us feel confortable with your camera and even forget about it!!! (Which was a serious challenge for us!)

And last but not least, we're so grateful for your open mind to our numerous requests.

It was a great pleasure for us to share with you all these moments and if we had to do it all over again, we would, in the blink of an eye, ask you again!

Will Wareham, Somerset, United Kingdom

"Will perfectly captured the fun and loving experience of our wedding. He was professional and patient throughout the time we worked together. We were really impressed how dedicated he was on the wedding day - crouching, balancing and peering through various windows just to get that perfect shot. He worked extremely hard and his pictures reflect this effort - and his fantastic attention to detail"

Michelle Huber, Twin Cities, MN

When she say's "Capturing the Emotion" BOY was she on point! Michelle Huber Photography delivered like no other vendor I have ever worked with! She is so fun to work with. From the very initial appointment at the coffee shop with my mom to the Big Day, Michelle is the epitome... Read More of class, talent, and professionalism. Michelle worked with Mike and me during our engagement sessions so that we felt comfortable and beautiful for our wedding. She answered all of our questions and has this magical packet (she has developed through out her years of photographing weddings) that helps you develop your day of timeline. Its every brides DREAM trust me. Being organized and having structure was such an amazing feeling. If I had questions all I had to do was ask! If you want a photographer who knows what she is doing and does it with a smile on her face and ensuring you have one on yours, Michelle Huber Photography is the one for you! I can't say enough thank you's and give enough stars. She has given us the gift of capturing our day and we will treasure our photos for generations to come. #IfoundmytrueloveANDphotographerforlife. Something I have to say about Michelle and Trent is it was really cool to see how complimentary they were of my other wedding vendors. They all worked so well together to make our day perfect and We couldn't have been happier, Thank you both! Love, The Hauge's

Ludvík Daněk, Brno, Czech Republic

Chtěli bychom vyjádřit velké poděkování Ludvíkovi za nádherné svatební fotografie, které nám budou denně připomínat den, kdy jsme spojili své životy v jeden. Hned při předsvatebním focení jsme se ujistili v tom, že jsme si vybrali pro zachycení svého dne fotografa s velkým F. Ludvík je fotograf, který srší originálními nápady, a i když jsme si mysleli, že je fotografování téměř vždy postaveno na uměle vytvořených pózách, na jeho fotografiích vše vypadá naprosto přirozeně a zachyceno jakoby náhodou. A to je asi největší předností každého fotografa, který vyniká ve své profesi. Na Ludvíka jsme narazili úplnou náhodou a oba jsme neuvěřitelně rádi, že tomu tak bylo. Vřelé díky.

Martin Hecht, Göppingen, Germany

Hallo Martin,

wir waren sehr froh, dass du bei unserer "sehr kurzfristigen" Hochzeit nicht nur als Fotograf sondern auch 
als Gast mit deiner Familie Zeit gefunden hattest.

Wir hatten dich gebeten, nur einige Bilder über den Tag verteilt zu knipsen, sodass wir einige Momentaufnahmen von 
unserem "großen" Tag als Erinnerung für uns haben.

Wir hatten dir komplett frei Hand gelassen und du konntest deiner Kreativität freien Lauf lassen.

Ich weiß noch als du sagtest "ich mach dass schon, lasst euch überraschen....." und im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes.....
wir waren von dem Ergebnis überwältigt.

Jedes Mal, wenn wir uns die Bilder wieder anschauen, sind wir wieder mittendrin in unseren tollen Erinnerungen und können 
die Emotionen von diesem Tag wieder fühlen.

Uns fällt niemand ein, der diesen Tag, diese Momente besser, lustiger und persönlicher hätte festhalten können. Durch deine 
lockere und lustige Art hatten wir soviel Spaß und unsere Lachmuskeln wurden gut trainiert.

Du hast einen großen Teil dazu beigetragen, dass wir unseren Tag nie vergessen werden.

Wir sind dir sehr dankbar für die tollen Erinnerungen.

Bleib so wie du bist :-) auf ein paar Gläschen Wein

Juan Carlos Calderon, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I cannot speak highly enough about Carlos and Melissa from Car & Mel Photography who captured our special elopement. You are willing to go the distance...literally! After a drive from PV, 30+ minute boat ride with multiple stops along the way to Yelapa, climbing 400+ steps in the heat to reach the top of our resort, you were ready to jump in and capture all the magical moments until the last bit of light. You made us feel so comfortable and it was a pleasure to have you join us on our special day! You guys rock! Thank you for the amazing photos. I am in love with them all!

Yvette & James @ Verana Resort, Yelapa Mexico

Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

Five stars is just not enough! Owen is a true artist in both setting the scene but also capturing the most magical natural shots.

We can't thank Owen enough for going the extra mile in every aspect, from phone, Skype, personal meetings to understand us, but then to be able to translate it into the mesmerising pictures we have ever seen.

From getting down and dirty, lying on the floor, to taking his shoes off, rolling his trousers up and jumping into the pool just to get right angle and work with the moving light. I've never seen Anyone so dedicated and passionate.

Owen, we can't sing ur praises high enough. From all the other recommendations to meetings with other photographers, we knew from the outset that we had made the right decision. Owen - you rock!!!
