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.

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Mario was such a pleasure to work with during our wedding, we absolutely love how our photos came out. Everyone who has seen them has been in awe at how beautiful they are. I have heard over and over that they are the best wedding photos anyone has seen yet. People can see in our photos how much fun my husband and I were having and can see how in love we are. Mario brought that all out in his photos. Very impressed with everything. Anytime I emailed Mario he got right back to me. We received our discs only a few weeks after the wedding and I was able to look at the proofs through his site within two weeks which was great!
I would highly recommend Mario to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. I was very picky about who we hired and did a lot of research prior to finding him and I am so happy we ended up hired him.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico, while living on the eastern end of Long Island, was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. While I thought I had everything under control, my husband reminded me that we needed to find a wedding photographer.

We began the process by researching photographers within Playa del Carmen and/or the Riviera Maya area. We came across the name Adrian Bonet and his beautiful website of wedding photos. It was exactly what we both were looking for – candid shots with some formal ones mixed in. We wanted to capture the experience, gestures and overall excitement of not only us but also most importantly our guests.

The day of our wedding, Adrian and his assistant Ivonne, were exactly what we hoped for. They artistically captured moments that at times we had no idea about and neither did our guests, and we loved it! Adrian and Ivonne were calm, cool and collected and their candidly artistic photographs displayed just that.

My husband and I are so gracious and appreciative of how every single shot came to life and ecstatic to hear our loved ones talk about how much they cannot stop looking at our wedding photos. What great memories Adrian and Ivonne captured, and we are forever grateful.

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best regards,
Laura & Brook.

Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

The photos look great, really great. Thanks a lot for making it look even better than we remember. I know I keep saying this, but my parents are *still* talking about how amazing the photos are and everyone who sees our photo box is immediately jealous. Score."

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. 

 

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

Great team, excellent results

Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom.  Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos.  Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly:  whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it.  And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers.  This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be.  We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form.  Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”
