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.

Luis Miguel Hernández, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The Ocean Photo Weddings team is a great team that is professional, responsive and produces high quality work! They did an amazing job of capturing my wedding day, both in photos and on video. I loved that they produced great quality photos and captured all of the "special moments" without blocking our guests' view. Luis Miguel and his team were easy to get in contact with prior to our destination wedding and throughout our stay in Mexico. They made an effort to make my husband and I feel comfortable and special during our photo session. I 100% recommend that you choose them as your photography and videography vendor; you will not regret it!

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was honestly the best vendor we worked with throughout the entire wedding. He showed up early, stayed late, and took the most incrediable pictures. His pictures were so creative and beautiful. He captured moments of my wedding that I didn't even see! I was blown away when we received our photos back. He is worth every penny!!

Kuba Kepinski, Poznań, Poland

Przede wszystkim super przyjazny kontakt. Atmosfera na planie zdjęciowym była luźna i w ogóle nie czuliśmy się spięci w tej dość nietypowej sytuacji :) cała rodzina zresztą bardzo dobrze wspomina Fotografa Kubę i cóż więcej, najlepszą reklamą są nasze zdjęcia :)

"Thank you!!"

"Chaps, we just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all your efforts on our big day and for putting in such a long shift, you went above and beyond - hope you got back home ok!! You guys were fantastic and it felt like you were more part of the family rather than providing a service. Your whole style made us feel really relaxed and we knew immediately we were in safe hands, which is impressive as we're both camera shy!! "

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you and appreciation for the incredible pictures you guys shot at our wedding. It is so wonderful to see them and kind of brings into focus moments/memories. Have been looking at them over last 24 hours and wanted to write something back straight away. I am seizing the chance to say a huge debt of gratitude to you both. We are both very camera shy and this is what we feared the most about having a wedding so you both have some skills to get anything half decent from both of us!"

"Wow, just WOW!! Amazing pictures guys. We LOVED seeing the preview, it brought back so many memories of the happy day. Thanks also for your very kind words on the blog, the feeling is mutual as we are so happy to have had you both at the wedding. Everyone who has seen the pictures thinks they are incredible and we totally love your style and the way you’ve captured the emotion of the day.

You both have an amazing talent"

'Paul is incredibly talented, we are over the moon with his photography. He was a complete professional & true gentleman. Thanks again.'

Hsiao Wei Lin, Taipei, Taiwan

We strongly recommend handsome photographer ~ Siaowei

His humor makes us the couple will not be so nervous

His field of expertise combined with light

Taken out of the picture so we feel very natural

Although he has been busy all day

He came to help us take pictures from Miaoli

But he is still very serious photographed every part of our picture

Absolutely not sloppy

Let us stay with the most beautiful memories
