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
Susanna Antichi, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is an amazing photographer. After looking at her website, my husband and I contacted her and asked if we could video chat. She immediately set something up for us. Right away she made us very comfortable. She was extremely approachable, flexible and understanding with all the questions we had. I was very nervous about having a photographer who lived in another country (we are from New York, but planned to have our wedding in Mexico). Susanna was more than helpful during this long distance process; she stayed in constant contact with us through email, and even provided us with additional resources during our planning process. During her travels, she made a stop in New York and was able to accommodate an engagement shoot in Central Park for us. The pictures came out amazing, even more than my husband and I could have asked for. We were more than excited when it was time for the wedding. Susanna did not disappoint. She met with us a few days before the wedding to discuss last minute logistics. The day of, Susanna was right on time and my husband and I let her capture whatever she thought was best. We were so glad that we did because looking through our pictures now we are amazed at how beautifully Susanna was able to capture our day. Her pictures brought me to tears as she was able to capture the love, romance, passion, fun and once in a lifetime moments that we now can cherish forever. I am thankful for her services and would highly recommend her for any occasion. 

 

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".

Michelle Huber, Twin Cities, MN

Michelle and Trent were AMAZING! They were extremely professional and friendly, and they made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken. Michelle and Trent were with us all day taking photos and they turned out absolutely incredible. We loved having two photographers on our... Read More wedding day because they were able to capture the same situation/photo from different angles. We had a blast with Michelle and Trent; they were constantly making us laugh and it really felt like they cared about our wedding day as much as we did. We had many compliments from our wedding party and other guests on the quality of photos and professionalism from Michelle and Trent. Their photos are truly unmatched, and we believe we could not have chosen a better pair to photograph our wedding. We would highly recommend their services!!

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi Guys,

I have booked Adamo, for our wedding in Sorrento May 2016!!!! Adamo has been absolutely fantastic, really quick at replying, great english- better than me! and really friendly, put me at ease for our big day! :)

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

That’s true!

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.

I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.

Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.

After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!

I’ll rate him with 5 stars.

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Mario exceeded all of our expectations by leaps and bounds! From our very first e-mail to communications after the wedding he has always responded to all questions, promptly, professionally and with good humor. He was also absolutely wonderful to work with in person! Somehow , he managed to disappear into the crowd but was always ready to unobtrusively snap a photo when a great moment popped up or a group of guests asked for shot. Throughout the night several people told us that they wish they'd had him for their weddings! We liked him so much, that if he weren't already our photographer, we would have loved to have him at the wedding as a guest!

As far as his skills as a photographer go, his portfolio more than speaks for itself. We absolutely love our photos and how he managed to capture not only shots incorporating the beauty of the island but also our hapiness and love for each other! We're amazed at how vibrant they are and I can't imagine any way to more completely capture the feel of ceremony and evening. Whenever we look back at them in the years to come, they'll instantly take us back to how it felt to be newly married and celebrating with our friends and family!

If you're considering Mario for your event absolutely hire him, you simply won't find anyone better!

James Sturcke, Logroño, Spain

"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.

Andy Duback, Stowe, Vermont

You are incredibly gifted, and your talent is matched by your enthusiasm for photography and commitment to providing us with a top-quality product. You hold the bar high as both artist and quintessential professional.  You are energetic and we can see that you love what you do. I have never seen someone work so hard, and never imagined how much care and effort you would put into capturing our day. -Katie & Zach
