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.

"Jason is a lovely laid back guy who takes the most beautiful photos in a completely unobtrusive manner. If you want the perfect photographic memory of your special occasion where the photos just happen and don't take over then Jason is the perfect man for the job. Plus on top of all that, his prices are beyond reasonable, book him now before the secret of his brilliance gets out and his cost goes through the roof and availability is non existent! I promise you won't regret it, he is truly amazing!"
"Ja, da bleibt noch unser toller Fotograf... dem wir ein ganz großes Lob ausprechen müssen, die Bilder sind so super getroffen und eine wo wunderschöne Erinnerung, die für immer bleibt.
Es sind einfach die Momente zu spühren...
Ich schaue mir die Bilder momentan noch (2 Wochen nach der Hochzeit) fast jeden Tag an und bin total begeistert, wie man es schafft, die Bilder so zum Ausdruck zu bringen!
Vielen Dank dafür!"

From Bracha Meshchaninov – mother of bride
Thank G-d we were blessed this past summer to be able to make two weddings, one in Crown Heights and one just outside Monsey. We used Kristen Reimer and her partner Steve of Photomuse for both and we could not have been happier. Although Photomuse had not been familiar with all the details of an Orthodox wedding, we filled them in on the program of events, from the beddeking and tish up to the final sheva bracha at benching! Not only were Kristen and Steve respectful of all of our customs, and a pleasure to work with, but they captured every relevant detail with a fresh appreciation for the artistry in every moment. With their ability to be creative as well as accurate we got wonderfully artistic and original records of two very special events! I have no hesitation in recommending them to any one considering using their services. For an Orthodox wedding in particular they certainly know now what to expect and can be counted on not to miss or skip any significant moment!!

"Your photos are spontaneous and natural and completely unlike traditional wedding images. You’re a professional photographer who puts people at ease; I hardly realised you were there half them time. You offer unbeatable value for money and the photos are fantastic.” Verónica, Barcelona.

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening

James was so easy and fun to work with! I love all the pictures that he took! He kept us laughing and was very punctual. He took the time to go over eveything in the contract so we fully understood what we were getting! The best part is how we received the final pictures! It was such a unique and special way to do it! I would recommend James McCoy to anyone!!
O trabalho do Fernando Longen foi do início ao fim de extremo profissionalismo e nos surpreendeu positivamente em todos os momentos, desde as primeiras fotos do ensaio pré casamento soube nos deixar a vontade resultando em fotos descontraídas desde o início, foi extremamente flexível em aguardar o dia que conseguíssemos o nosso tão esperado pôr-do-sol, e o resultado foi maravilhoso, graças a dedicação de Fernando sempre. No making of registrou tudo até os detalhes que não percebemos, e por fim no casamento, cada sentimento, cada sorriso, cada minuto está claramente evidenciado em todas as fotos que já recebemos eficientemente logo após o casamento, resumindo, só temos a agradecer e parabenizar!
Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.
If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.
The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.
I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

Owen photographed our wedding at the Don Pepe hotel in Marbella two weeks ago. Dealing with Owen was an absolute pleasure in the lead up to our wedding as he was great for keeping in touch to arrange everything and to make sure it all ran smoothly on the day!! I am surprised he did not charge me for wedding planner services as he gave me so many tips and suggestions in the run up which helped me massively when planning a wedding abroad!
We couldn't have been happier on the day as he made everyone completely at ease and all our guests commented on how professional he was and his incredible attention to detail while also blending into the background to capture so many natural moments as the day unfolded! We called him our own wedding ninja as every time we looked he was taking photographs from different angles in the corner, on the ground and above our heads! The pictures we got were just what we wanted as they perfectly captured the relaxed and fun atmosphere we were going for on the day!!
I would highly recommend Owen as a wedding photographer-you will definitely not be disappointed!!
