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.

Todo comenzó el día que decidimos casarnos y fue así donde en todo este cuento decidimos que Luis Cano y su grupo de fotógrafos inmortalizaran esta gran experiencia.
La respuesta que mi esposa Marisol y yo vivimos fue más que la esperada, unos 20 días antes de la boda no contábamos con que nos harían un estudio fotografico pre boda, nos dejaron sorprendidos con tan excelentes fotos. !Que se nos venía para este día tan especial!.
Cumplimiento, conjugado con el profesionalismo y el amor a servir, a dejar este hermoso momento inmortalizado en el lente de una cámara, el no tener que preocuparnos por decirles que hacer, que momento captar, no se sienten en todo el evento.
Es así como el resultado está lleno de felicidad, las miradas, las caricias, las sonrisas, el espacio todo en general hace parte de tan maravillosas fotos.
Mil gracias Luis Cano y a todo su equipo de trabajo, gracias por permitir con su profesionalismo que nuestra boda sea recordada por siempre.

Nuevamente mil y mil gracias
Altamente agradecidos, Marisol y Mauricio”

Elegir a los fotógrafos de nuestra boda fue una de las decisiones más claras que podíamos tener, ¡sin duda alguna tenían que ser ellos! Fernando y María Ángeles, dos vecinos de nuestra localidad cuyo trabajo como profesionales no tiene que envidiar a ningún otro fotógrafo, ni a nivel nacional, me atrevería a decir.

Hicimos nuestra preboda en Roma, con propuesta de Fernando. Nos pareció una locura pero, ¿por qué no?, ¡a fin de cuentas esos momentos de locura son los que nos dan vida! Después de vivir la experiencia y de ver el resultado, pensé que no podríamos asombrarnos aún más, ¡es realmente alucinante!

Pero es que con su buen hacer profesional, la pasión y constancia que le ponen a todo, el afán de superación, y la gran calidad humana que tienen, se superan con creces con cada trabajo que realizan. Son capaces de captar lo menos esperado, lo más emotivo, ¡el color, la luz, los momentos!

Por supuesto, enormemente agradecidos, tanto con su trabajo, como con su trato, porque realmente son dos adorables y encantadoras personas. ¡Ni que deciros tiene que las fotos de la boda son espectaculares!

Our wedding day was a dream come true and Mario beautifully captured every moment!
Mario was super helpful every step of the way. We do not live in Nassau (we are from NYC) and during my planning process Mario was always available for a chat or a string of emails. He made me feel confident in him from the beginning without even meeting in person. I do not like to have my picture taken and was a fairly nervous bride about that. Mario was able to quell my nerves and our shots are amazing. The photos are stunning - I cannot stop looking at them. The night we received our disk of images I was mesmerized. Each shot was trumped by the next. Our wedding album will be a tome of every shot he took that day because it's too hard to choose the "best" ones.
Mario caught private, intimate moments of beauty. He was able to get amazing shots of my nephews (ages 2 & 4) that are so stunning you would think that he actually got them to hold still. The photos of our guests at the reception are magically fun. He was able to capture fun moments and crazy dancing shots that perfectly sum up what a great day it was. In addition our reception venue was perfectly mood lit - but it was dark. If you could see our pictures you would think the venue was very bright - but his flash was not intrusive at all! Actually, some of our guests (when they saw the pictures) said they didn't even remember him being there to take that shot. Not that you want to loose Mario (he's super fun & funny) but I think it's important that the photographer blends in and becomes a part of the surrounding and can just get the essence of your event. And that is exactly what he did.
Wedding photos are mementos that are to be treasured forever. I truly cannot express how much I love our wedding photos. I would recommend Mario Nixon to anyone who asks and am forever grateful that he was there on our special day.

Owen, thank you for so beautifully capturing our wedding day at Tankardstown House, Co. Meath Ireland in June. When I came across your galleries I knew I loved your work; the light, elegance and style of photos. In the run up to the day I felt so comfortable and confident that you understood our style. Thank you for taking lots of photos that didn’t require any posing! The combination of documentary style photography and beautiful artistic shots of us is phenomenal! Oisin and I are simply in love with our photos from the day. Every time we look at them we’re just so happy because it captures both how beautiful and great craic the day was for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I highly recommend that everyone work you for any/ all occasion – wonderful experience and photos that we’ll look back on for years and years to come.

De details, belichting, spontaniteit en creativiteit hebben gezorgd voor prachtige fotografie! Onopvallend op de dag, maar geeft de juiste tips op het moment dat dit nodig is. Het album is een helder en mooi resultaat die de sfeer van de dag goed laat zien.  - Thomas & Sanne
