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.

The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.
Conhecemos o trabalho do Fernando em 2012, quando ele fotografou o casamento da minha cunhada. No inicio optamos pelo seu trabalho devido as recomendações que ela nos fez e pelas maravilhosas fotos que ele registrou no casamento dela, mas depois do nossa primeira conversa com ele os motivos por termos escolhido ele como nosso fotografo só aumentaram!! Além de ser muito comprometido com o seu trabalho, o Fernando é um cara super bacana, divertido e criativo! No nosso ensaio pré casamento, além de nos dar várias idéias e topar nossas idéias, ele nos deixou super a vontade em frente as câmeras, nos fez curtir demais esse dia e as fotos, claro, ficaram lindas, naturais e com a nossa cara! No dia do casamento, desde o making of, estava ele lá, me tranquilizando, me fazendo rir e claro, registrando lindas fotos. Durante nossa festa foi super atencioso com todos os nossos convidados, estava presente em todos os momentos, em todos os ângulos! Nós aproveitamos muito a nossa festa, e tenho a impressão que todos os lados que olhava lá estava o Fernando e seu flash, no meio da pista, registrando tudo!! E as fotos desse dia tão especial em nossas vidas são maravilhosas, demonstram exatamente todos os sentimentos daqueles momentos, emocionam demais! E além de tudo isso, ele ainda entende nossa ansiedade pós-casamento, entregou as fotos muito rápido e com um material de excelente qualidade.
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! :)
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.

Zibi brought so much more than just stunning photographs to our wedding day – he is warm and kind hearted; he clearly loves his job and was full of enthusiasm, even at the end of a very long day. Zibi was with us for almost 15 hours and from start to finish he was working hard to capture those special moments for us. He worked with us and our guests felt comfortable around him. Nothing was too much trouble, anything we asked, he jumped to do for us. I could not have asked for a better photographer… and the photographs themselves? Just wow! I’m so glad to have found him and would highly recommend him.
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!!
Ainda nem vimos todas as fotos e já estamos extremamente satisfeitos! É maravilhoso ter a certeza que escolhemos a pessoa certa para registrar esse momento tão especial! Profissionalismo, sensibilidade e visão indiscutíveis! Obrigada por nos permitir reviver o momento a cada imagem!

We were so lucky to have a 5 star venue and 5 star meal matched by a 5 star photography service end to end - if you put in half of the effort you put in we would have been happy so you can imagine how delighted we are with all your extra effort! Thanks Mark. Caroline & John
Desde que decidimos casarnos sabia que debía encontrar a alguien especial que plasmara ese momento y también sabia que no debía buscar mas allá de vosotros. Nadie duda de vuestra profesionalidad, vuestros innumerables clientes lo demuestran pero y en lo personal, ¿que decimos?….. pues que sois únicos sacando sonrisas, aplacando nervios, compartiendo vivencias; sois buenas personas, de esas que no olvidas…, vosotros tenéis una gran responsabilidad, sois los encargados de hacernos recordar cada momento vivido ese día, ese detalle que no apreciamos pero que vosotros supisteis ver, aquella mirada, aquel gesto que por simple que sea Mª. Ángeles lo ha hecho especial y lo capturó con su objetivo único, responsables de las lagrimas de emoción que quizás surjan como aquel día cuando nos entregasteis el álbum de preboda. Sois tan cómplices como nosotros de esta locura, bendita locura!!. Esta niña de rostro dulce no hubiese podido describir mejor tantas emociones sentidas en aquellas calles de Sevilla. Al ver aquel resultado respiramos tan aliviados que la mañana de la boda los nervios no existían. Siempre tendremos palabras de gratitud para vosotros porque además de vuestro magnífico trabajo nos llevamos mil emociones compartidas, confidencias, anécdotas….. y eso no puede pagarse con dinero. Nos quedamos con vosotros para todos y cada unos de los momentos especiales que aún nos faltan por vivir….. Mil gracias.
To catch the moment; the intense moment you lived (and is now a blur in your mind), the moment that almost passed you by, the moment that was shared by people dear to you. This is what we wanted from our wedding pictures and we thank SOVISUAL PHOTOGRAPHY for making it happen. With their sensitivity, discretion and artistic approach, they gave us pictures that tell the story of that day in the most beautiful, natural and spontaneous way. Sandy & Odysseas are great professionals (by far more organized than this bride and groom!) but make you feel so at ease and relaxed, like the pictures are taken by your best friends.
Sandy & Odysseas, thank you for sharing the moments with us. Because we understand that only if you share the moment, can you capture it in such a meaningful and beautiful way!
