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.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason is a lovely laid back guy who takes the most beautiful photos in a completely unobtrusive manner. If you want the perfect photographic memory of your special occasion where the photos just happen and don't take over then Jason is the perfect man for the job. Plus on top of all that, his prices are beyond reasonable, book him now before the secret of his brilliance gets out and his cost goes through the roof and availability is non existent! I promise you won't regret it, he is truly amazing!"

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

Our wedding photos are amazing! The best photos i've ever seen of Matt and I, i don't know how Sandy and Odysseas done it! The professionalism and attention to detail was like nothing i'd ever witnessed. They went over and above for us. This couple are beautiful people inside and out! A real pleasure to have them as part of our day! 

Stefan Redel, Bocholt, NRW, Germany

"Ja, da bleibt noch unser toller Fotograf... dem wir ein ganz großes Lob ausprechen müssen, die Bilder sind so super getroffen und eine wo wunderschöne Erinnerung, die für immer bleibt.
Es sind einfach die Momente zu spühren...
Ich schaue mir die Bilder momentan noch (2 Wochen nach der Hochzeit) fast jeden Tag an und bin total begeistert, wie man es schafft, die Bilder so zum Ausdruck zu bringen!

Vielen Dank dafür!"

Zibi took photos during our wedding in July 2016. He quickly made us feel at ease and it was a delight to have him present on our day!Zibi listened to the mood and feel we wanted to capture in our pictures – and he captured the day exactly as we wanted. Zibi was extremely professional and well organised before the day and this really put us at ease. 100% recommend! Thank you Zibi – from the Hamiltons!

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We recently got married on the Amalfi Coast in Italy with Adamo Morgese as our photographer. I had searched for a photographer who could offer us natural photos that didn't require any posed shots and who we could trust to document our entire day - Adamo without a doubt was the guy for us.


Adamo managed to capture our entire day from getting ready, the ceremony, walking through cobbled streets to drink on terrace right down to the final reception venue through to the sun setting and he captured it all beautifully.


Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and you need to have someone you can trust to put as much time and energy into it as you have planning it and you should look no further than Adamo. He travelled with me to the ceremony and kept me calm and giggling the entire way. My guests loved him and when he left the entire reception waved him off. Adamo had a great eye for a photo and you will not find anyone more helpful. I will be eternally grateful to Adamo for all of his help throughout the preparations, day itself and the communication afterwards. He came to our wedding as a photographer and he left as our friend!! Welcome in our home anytime. Love Chris & Charlie Heywood x

Marcos Valdés, Querétaro, Mexico

Cadoret Ossama, Bordeaux, France

We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Ossa Photo and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Ossa’s photos.

Both of us were so comfortable with Ossa and his wife, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.
