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
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.

Michelle Huber, Twin Cities, MN

When she say's "Capturing the Emotion" BOY was she on point! Michelle Huber Photography delivered like no other vendor I have ever worked with! She is so fun to work with. From the very initial appointment at the coffee shop with my mom to the Big Day, Michelle is the epitome... Read More of class, talent, and professionalism. Michelle worked with Mike and me during our engagement sessions so that we felt comfortable and beautiful for our wedding. She answered all of our questions and has this magical packet (she has developed through out her years of photographing weddings) that helps you develop your day of timeline. Its every brides DREAM trust me. Being organized and having structure was such an amazing feeling. If I had questions all I had to do was ask! If you want a photographer who knows what she is doing and does it with a smile on her face and ensuring you have one on yours, Michelle Huber Photography is the one for you! I can't say enough thank you's and give enough stars. She has given us the gift of capturing our day and we will treasure our photos for generations to come. #IfoundmytrueloveANDphotographerforlife. Something I have to say about Michelle and Trent is it was really cool to see how complimentary they were of my other wedding vendors. They all worked so well together to make our day perfect and We couldn't have been happier, Thank you both! Love, The Hauge's

Lukas GUILLAUME, Toulouse, France

We had the privilege to have Lukas take our photos on our wedding day on the 25th July 2015 in the Jardin des Martels and then the Moulin de Nartaud in France. Despite the quirky wedding format with opted for, and thus the very early start and consequently long day ahead, Lukas was very understanding and adaptable to our needs. He is a very nice guy who got along with every one involved on the day and genuinely enjoys what he's doing and the quality of is work is beyond reproach. The photos all look very natural and never forced or staged, he just hides in plain sight and takes the perfect shot at the perfect moment without being in the way. We were especially impressed by the fact that he managed to prepare a diaporama/slideshow with key photos and a tastefully chosen music on the very same evening for all the guests to enjoy at the end of the meal, and without fail it impressed all the guests with a lot of laughter, "ooh's" and "aah's" and also a few tears. We also can't say enough good about his commitment and availability afterwards; he is always very prompt to answer any questions you may have and will go the extra mile to keep you happy. I can say with confidence that anyone choosing his services will be completely satisfied.

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was amazing! He is very professional while still being friendly and likable, so we felt very comfortable with him. Before the wedding day we went over all the shots that were most important to me and he did a great job capturing those for us, as well as many I never thought about. James delivered our pictures to us in about a week and a half and we were amazed at the beauty, quality and amount of pictures he was able to get. I will continue to use James for family photo shoots in the future and would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event.

Mark Capilitan, Sligo, Ireland

Thank you Mark for everything you did for us on the day of the wedding, as well as the engagement shoot and of course the final details including our fabulous album. We absolutely love it. You were so easy going and relaxed on the day and the pictures speak for themselves. Stephanie & Paul

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.

We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.

We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.

On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.

The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.
