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.

Kele Huertas & Fer Velasco , Sevilla, España

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!

"We are completely thrilled with all the beautiful and creative work you did for our wedding; Ben and I are both so impressed and touched by how much work you put in to taking such creative, original photos, and we can't thank you both enough. :) All of our family have loved the proofs and are looking forward to purchasing photos, too."

Lukas Bezila, Vienna, Austria

Dear Lukas, we’ve just seen the pictures from our wedding and are moved to tears. So many emotions, so many moments getting alive in your pictures. Thank you so much!

Myself & Clare would just liek to say a big massive thank you. The album is absolutely fantastic, you really are exceptional at your work. We could not be happier and believe your work really does stand out, head and shoulders above other photographers out there. It is a work of art you have created and one which we will cherish. Thanks again. Clare & Kevin

Emily Porter, Charleston, West Virginia, United States

The Oberports are amazing photographers, fun people, and now our friends (at least we think so- ha!). They are always super responsive, quick with advice, and calm in a crazy moment.

When my dress zipper broke an hour before the ceremony, Emily was positive and calming and did what she could to help my mom sew over the zipper. That is another thing- they aren't just photographers, they end up being a second and third pair of hands, confidants, and general badass, take-control kinda folks. They will make sure your grandparents are minimally inconvenienced for family photos and somehow are take-control but also very sweet while doing so.

The Oberports are the real deal!

Petrica Tanase, Bucharest, Romania

Cristina and Petrica are before anything else those enthusiast and positive friends that you really want at your wedding and those whom your guests will ask you if you know from childhood.
They are the friends that have been to the best weddings and can tell you which DJ will keep the dance floor on fire and that you should make the final adjustment to your dress 2 days before the wedding because you will lose weight.
They are those nice friends that you can chat over a lemonade about all the crazy things they've done in life. They are the friends that do what they say will do and for sure they are the living proof of the love that you dream about and hope to live.
About the photos, there is not much to say other than the photos tell you. We are sure you have already seen all the stories on their site and if you didn't stop reading this.

P.S. No, we are not friends from childhood. We've met less than a year ago when it only took five minutes to realize that they are the friends that we want to pay to have at our wedding.

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.

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Kuba jest takim fotografem, który pojawia się zawsze tam, gdzie trzeba i jednocześnie sprawia wrażenie że nie czujesz obecności jego krępującego, bądź co bądź, obiektywu. Będzie on świetnym wyborem na fotografa jeśli w tym Wielkim Dniu nie chcecie czuć się ustawiani, ale wyłącznie dyskretnie i humorystycznie kierowani. Współpraca z Kubą zaowocowała dla nas też tym, że uchwycił on te spojrzenia i emocje naszych gości, których my nie mieliśmy okazji dojrzeć w natłoku zdarzeń. Dzięki Kubie odczuliśmy i zapamiętaliśmy ten dzień jeszcze głębiej i prawdziwiej, bo nasz fotograf pokazał i przypomniał nam co działo się pomiędzy nami oraz naszymi gośćmi.

Lukas Guillaume, Miami, Florida

Lukas was an absolutely extraordinary wedding photographer!
We're from the US and decided to have a destination wedding in France. Lukas was extremely helpful and accommodating, answering all of our questions promptly and doing multiple Skype calls to discuss our style and what pictures we wanted.
On the day of the wedding, he was so friendly and documented our wedding perfectly. It was a great mix of posed and candid shots - exactly what we wanted!
After the wedding, Lukas was incredibly prompt in getting us the pictures and putting our photo album together.
We couldn't have asked for a better photographer and still love looking at all our pictures of that magical day!
