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”
Five stars is just not enough! Owen is a true artist in both setting the scene but also capturing the most magical natural shots.
We can't thank Owen enough for going the extra mile in every aspect, from phone, Skype, personal meetings to understand us, but then to be able to translate it into the mesmerising pictures we have ever seen.
From getting down and dirty, lying on the floor, to taking his shoes off, rolling his trousers up and jumping into the pool just to get right angle and work with the moving light. I've never seen Anyone so dedicated and passionate.
Owen, we can't sing ur praises high enough. From all the other recommendations to meetings with other photographers, we knew from the outset that we had made the right decision. Owen - you rock!!!

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.
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!!
We really wanted our photographs to tell a story and capture all the special moments without being posed or awkward. We wanted to feel comfortable and feel like our photographer wasn't even there. We googled and found Nuar and from that very first click we knew we had found something special.
Living in England and finding a wedding photographer in Spain could have been difficult but from the very first email Jose put us at ease. They captured myself and Nick in our most natural self, they caught us laughing and enjoying each others company.
Finally the day came and we really could not have wished for more. Jose and Cris were professional, fun, helpful and we felt like they were guests at our wedding rather than doing a job. The care and time they put into our day was amazing and our we will be forever grateful. The special touches and the added extras they provide set them high above any other photographers. They have captured every smile, laugh, look of love, special moments and have not only given us the most amazing wedding album, they have given us a beautiful reminder of our wedding day. Everytime we look at them we are transported back to that day and those moments.
Our photographs are relaxed, natural and works of art. They provided us with the most amazing record of our special day and also gave us something even better; their friendship. Looking for a photographer? You have just found one.
Nichola + Nick.
"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"

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!!
