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
Kele Huertas & Fer Velasco , Sevilla, España

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.

Dominique Shaw, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is AMAZING. We loved her SO much! She wanted our photos to be extra special, so she took us away from Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The scenery at that island is much more majestic than what could have been captured in the hotel zone, which we very much appreciated. Susanna was always very responsive. That is actually one of the many reasons I chose her for our special day. She has a unique eye. If you want your images to be different than anything you've ever seen before, then pick Susanna. I guarantee you, your friends and family will be in awe of your photos. I can't say enough positive things about Susanna. We are overjoyed and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!! Thanks again Susanna!

Marine Fonteyne, Miami (FL)

We received the pictures yesterday and I am absolutely happy with the results. You did an AMAZING job!!! Well done. I am not just a Skin Specialist but also a fashion Model so I am extremely fussy when it comes to photo shoots and you ticked all the boxes. (: I will definitely recommend you to anybody I know as I am extremely happy with the outcome. And good work has to be rewarded. I am glad I trusted you 100% and will let any other brides know. Hope you are doing well ! We shall keep in touch. ,"

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"We met Jesse and Moira at a Bridal Show about a year before our wedding. If you've been to a bridal show you know there are tons of photographers all wanting you to book with them. My husband and I talked to several. They handed us their brochures and shuffled us along not wanting to miss potential business walking by. None of them stood out, they all blended together and none made us feel good.

Then we met Jesse and Moira! We were first in awe of the amazing photography hanging in their booth. Their photos stood out! They were different in a great way! After talking to Moira for a few minutes I knew they were different. They didn't try to shuffle us along, they answered our questions, told us a little about their background and how it helps them in photography. Meeting them was sort of like finding "the dress". We knew they were it!

I was impressed with Jesse and Moira's planning leading up to the wedding. We met so we could tell them about a few wedding day surprises that we wanted captured. Jesse and Moira worked up a timeline and scouted the venue for great places to photograph. Moira called me with a few follow-up questions to make sure everything was perfect.

The day of the wedding was perfect. Moira and Jesse were in the background and captured the day perfectly. They didn't miss a thing and the images are beautiful candid reminders of our day. It's been three months since our wedding and I look at our pictures daily! They are beautiful!

I can't say enough good things about Jesse and Moira and would highly recommend them!"

Dear Rich,

Thank you doesn't seem like enough to convey our gratitude for your amazing work on our wedding. Your genuine enthusiasm and passion helped make our day special and we couldn't be happier with the result. I have a feeling that the walls in our house will soon be filled with wedding pictures. Thank you again, we couldn't have done it without you.

Kind regards,

Emma & Nathan

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

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.

Best regards,
Ivan & Jenny.

Bima Kuntoaji Adhitya, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Finally we had a family photoshot with Bima Adhitya. Bima was our wedding photographer 4 years ago. Our family photoshot was taken at Uluwatu, Bali. It took around 1 hour to go to our destination and my son, Ando, became cranky but Bima and his beautiful wife Nina helped us to relax and successfully captured our best and natural moments. Through his magic touch Bima managed to take lots of amazing shots. It was an unforgettable photoshot and wouldn’t happend without Bima’s help. We send our greatest gratitude for Bima and his wife. Thank you Bima for the photoshot.
