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.

Dear Till and Nadja,

Your pictures are truly unbelievable! Tehy are more than we ever hoped or dared to dream of. It was a wonderful day, full of joy, love and happiness and your pictures surely represent that to the smallest detail.
You´ve made our wedding day even more precious that it already was by making it possible for us to go back in time anytime we want to relive the most happiest day of our lives.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for what you have done for us!

We are thankful beyond words!

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!

Katie & Kirk Shields.

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi everyone,


We have booked Adamo to be our wedding photographer in June based on all the excellent reviews for him. I just wondered if anyone would be willing to show some of their wedding photos - I'd really like to see some examples of his work as many people say his website does not do him justice.


Many Thanks

Daniel Meyer, Gauteng, South Africa

Daniel Lardus was recommended to us by the Venue we chose for our wedding.
The wedding planner at the venue gave us his business card and suggested we arrange to meet him, he was also the photographer at her wedding.
After we met with him there was no doubt that we found our photographer.
Before the wedding day Lardus kept in contact with us on a regular basis and arranged a meeting with us, discussing the theme of the wedding the type of feeling we have in mind for the big day.
On the day he was such a pleasure to work with. He arrived bright and early to take photos of the bride and groom getting ready. Also paying a great deal of
Attention to detail with the photos he took of the venue, the décor etc. I remember asking Lardus that I want him to Capture moments. I don’t want too much posed photos and he managed to get the most amazing photographs without us even being aware of his presence. Many of our guest complimented us on the photographer being so friendly and professional.
Our first day on our Honeymoon two days after the wedding Lardus had already sent us a sneak peak of our photos and I absolutely fell inlove with the photos and couldn’t wait to see the final album. We received our final album and everything that came along in the package in less than 3 months. Which in my opinion is a job well done.
In the process of creating the final album – Lardus made sure that we approved the final print. And there was no need to change a thing. The Final Album was absolutely beautiful and captured the story of our beautiful day perfectly.
We would highly recommend Lardus to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer. He really listens to the couples ideas and needs, worked tirelessly on the day of the wedding and ensured us with a wedding Album to treasure.
Thank you Lardus.



Philip Stephenson, Paris, France

Dear Philip, I hope you and your family are all doing very well! Andy and I flew back from Thailand yesterday, moving back to London for a few years. We've just been looking at last, (we've been so looking forward to seeing them) through our wedding album and they are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for all your hard work. We were just saying again how very lucky we feel to have found you- you felt like an important part of our big day and my family loved having you there. The pictures are incredible and such a special reminder of that day- beautiful beautiful albums too! I'm really glad we went for 2 in the end; it was too hard cutting them down from the original selection! It was extra special looking at the albums this morning as we've got some exciting news; a new Perrins addition to our family who is due in September! I can't wait to them the photos one day. Thank you so much and best of luck with your busy summer season! All those newly weds will be very lucky to have you as their photographer. Kind regards, Katherine and Andy
