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
Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to write a brief note about the legend that is Adamo Morgese!! I'm based in London and about 5 years ago my friends got married in Italy(Almalfi Coast). After careful consideration they decided to go with Adamo for their wedding pictures and I must say the album and the pictures all 800 of them captured the amazing day! Recently the bride's twin sister got married and without a thought chose Adamo to attend her special day in the UK. One of his skills is how he just blends into the occasion and takes fantastic photos whilst mixing with the crowd and getting the best reactions from everyone. He's not trying to take over the venue or the event and just goes about his great work in the background. Recommended without questions to anyone who wants a great album! You won't even want to have a video because he tells the story so well in his pictures!! Well done and keep up the good work Adamo!!

Marcos Valdés, Querétaro, Mexico

Amazing!!! Marcos took our wedding photos and they are truly beautiful. He captured the venue, and the whole atmosphere in a way that brings the images back to life again.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.

We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.

We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.

On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.

The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.

Danilo Muratore, Calabria, italy

If you are looking for a photographer who can translate into pictures the emotions of your big day, that expresses the spontaneity and naturalness of a gesture, a look, representing the various times of the day from different points of view, here, this photographer does for you! We were looking for the report service, for not having the stress of those who tells you to do the poses, and the service from the point of view has made our wishes, immediately putting everyone at ease thanks to their professionalism and sympathy.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was completely unobtrusive and discreetly captured natural photographs throughout our day, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. If it's a reportage style you're after, then Jason is the photographer for you. I would recommend the reportage style for any couple that are self conscious, or don't want to take time out of their wedding for endless posed photos. Jason will however take set pieces if you ask him and I think it's good to have a few. We were really happy with both the set piece photos and the natural reportage style ones. It's nice to look at the moments that were captured and know that they were real." Lucy and Adam.

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

“Felices y agradecidos con la vida por haberlos puesto en nuestro camino para captar “Nuestros Momentos” en el día más feliz, de verdad que se quedan cortas las palabras para expresarles la gratitud por ese trabajo tan maravilloso que realizaron,  capturaron cada detalle, cada mirada, cada momento, toda nuestra complicidad…

Gracias infinitas a ti, a Sebas, a todo el equipo!!!

Sigan llenando de recuerdos hermosos por siempre a todos los afortunados que den con ustedes!”

Fabio Azanha, Lisbon, Portugal

Oh, how lucky we were to have stumbled upon Maria and Fabio! One look at their stunning portfolio and we were completely captivated! True to their style, our wedding photos were breathtakingly beautiful! Vivid expressions, rich colors, innocent smiles and silent thoughts - they unintrusively captured every wonderful moment of our day. They are a great team together, complementing each other, very endearing and yet very professional. Thank you, Maria and Fabio, for gifting us such indelible memories of our wedding day!

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was amazing! He is very professional while still being friendly and likable, so we felt very comfortable with him. Before the wedding day we went over all the shots that were most important to me and he did a great job capturing those for us, as well as many I never thought about. James delivered our pictures to us in about a week and a half and we were amazed at the beauty, quality and amount of pictures he was able to get. I will continue to use James for family photo shoots in the future and would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event.
