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.

Carlos Calderon, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I cannot speak highly enough about Carlos and Melissa from Car & Mel Photography who captured our special elopement. You are willing to go the distance...literally! After a drive from PV, 30+ minute boat ride with multiple stops along the way to Yelapa, climbing 400+ steps in the heat to reach the top of our resort, you were ready to jump in and capture all the magical moments until the last bit of light. You made us feel so comfortable and it was a pleasure to have you join us on our special day! You guys rock! Thank you for the amazing photos. I am in love with them all!

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

La magia de nuestro matrimonio logramos volverlo a vivir cada vez que miramos nuestras fotos, logradas por Lui Cano y su equipo de trabajo. Las miradas, la complicidad y el amor, unido a los paisajes, la luz del día y la experiencia en este tipo de fotografía hacen que nos devolvamos en el tiempo y nos enamoremos cada día mas…” – Carolina y Felipe

Mark Capilitan, Sligo, Ireland

Mark, we could not be happier with your work. Your professionalism, important and relevant pieces of advice throughout the day. I particularly remember you saying to me outside the church to walk slowly up the aisle as it was a short aisle so it wouldn't take long to get to the top! Brilliant advice and really made me savour the moment with dad and the start of the aisle and take everything in. You were just a pleasure to have around throughout the day, we always felt comfortable with you and I had complete trust in you which really helped us enjoy the day and I feel you were pivotal in the relaxed atmosphere that so many people have commented on since! Your guidance to have photos near Cromleach was also great rather than wasting precious time travelling for photos..it meant we got to the reception about 3.30 and had loads of time to spend with guests so we never felt under pressure during the day. And the album and print that you gave us! Just fabulous!!! To have the album so quickly is just unbelievable!!! We have your Print framed and hanging already! The album is beautiful and our parents love their mini albums as they can bring them to work/ when meeting friends and show them photos! What more can we say! Can't sing your praises enough, apart from being an amazing and talented photographer it is your effortless demeanor and quiet disposition that really sets you head and shoulders above other photographers. You perfectly documented our day and we will be forever grateful! I must get all this onto feedback on your webpage or please feel free to take from my comments above. Andrew and I give you 6 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟! Many Thanks, Susan & Andrew 😊

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!"
