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.

Testimonials
Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

Hands down THE BEST photography team . AMAZING pictures, GREAT compositions, a TOP NOTCH equipment and a VERY PROFESSIONAL approach. Thank you very much for capturing all the love, laughter and emotions of our wedding day and we look forward to working with you on our next big life event!”

Katharina and Emanuel Pogatetz, Wien

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"Hiring Jesse and Moira was hands down the best decision we ever made when planning our wedding! They're the real deal. They are a real couple, with real unique ideas and a real passion for the art of photography. It all started with our fun engagement session that captured three of our favorite things: Mountains, dogs, and beers. Who wouldn't love that? All of our favorite things :)

On our wedding day, we were both extremely worried about the weather. It was ridiculously cold for June and waking up to rain and fog isn't every bride's dream. They assured us that the lighting was perfect for photos and they were so right. Once the fog finally cleared, they were able to capture a beautiful moment between my husband and I and the photograph was even more incredible than the moment itself. To this day, people still ask us if it is a painting because it looks that incredibly real and vivid. The lighting and mountainous back drop is absolutely perfect. Sometimes we look at the picture and think, "Is that really us?" It looks like it belongs in a magazine, no joke!

Not to mention that they were seamless. They captured the raw emotion of the events, the people and the memories that were created that day. Some of our favorite pictures are the candid shots that we didn't even notice were being taken. We couldn't have been happier with them and their outstanding work!"

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!

Zhenya, we wholeheartedly want to thank you! The wedding day got away from me, but you captured the most important moments. It was funny and lively. Pictures are vivid, bright and some of them are funny. Waiting was worthy of it. We wish you success in your life!

Marcos Valdés, Querétaro, Mexico

Amazing!!! Marcos took our wedding photos and they are truly beautiful. He captured the venue, and the whole atmosphere in a way that brings the images back to life again.

Con Luis Cano no encontramos un fotógrafo, hallamos a un excelente profesional, una persona carismática, ética y llena de pasión por lo que hace.
No fue difícil adaptarnos o encontrar la respuesta a nuestras dudas, siempre estuvo aportando su opinión basada en su experiencia y buscando siempre nuestro agrado.
Gracias por haber hecho con nuestra experiencia un lindo recuerdo tangible para el resto de nuestros días. Un abrazo!” –Vivi y Javier.

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
