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
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

Ludwig Dalen, Thun, Švýcarsko

Největší díky za tu spoustu krásných fotek, kterými jsi zvěčnil jeden z našich nejkrásnějších dní ve společném životě. Na fotky jsme se moc těšily a předčily veškerá naše očekávání. Nadšení jsme z tebe a tvé tvorby nebyly jen my, ale také všichni svatebčané, kteří šli z tvé práce do kolen. Myslíme si, že jsme si lepšího a sympatičtějšího fotografa vybrat nemohly. Jsi jedinečný a originální, toho si na tobě nesmírně vážíme. Jsme šťastní, že jsi náš velký den strávil s námi zrovna ty.

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! He was my sister's photographer at her wedding and he was fantastic so when my husband and I got engaged we asked her for his information. Jacek responded within hours of us emailing every single time. He was so flexible about everything. He and his assistant, Conrad, made us feel so comfortable while doing pictures and got genuine laughs out of us with their hysterical comments. He even gave me his jacket because it was cold and snowing on our wedding day! Additionally the pictures are absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to order photos and make a photo book. From black and white to creative to romantic pictures, he does it all. Also, just one week after our wedding Jacek had put up albums on his website so we could see it all again. We could not have imagined a better photographer and are so thrilled we chose him. We are already trying to figure out the next time we can utilize his services again! If you live in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, or New York area there is no better, more wonderful, more responsive photographer you could ask for. He is very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

Fung Siu Ming, Hong Kong

Right after i had my first visit to SiuMing, I already knew you are the only person who could give me what I longing for~

We had a crazily head spinning big day, you are not only just capturing the valuable moments that I might not see it myself on the day, but also beautifully recorded. I then realized you gotta be a superman-like multi-tasking skills to be a truly professional photographer! I know I would not missed a single moments because I have you guys~  You and your team performed far beyond excellence, without you guys, my wedding would not be as smoothed and successful.

I am truly thankful and blessed to have SiuMing and your team on my big day. Looking forward to see your art pieces, with me and Chris on them~

Ali Nishan, Local Male, Maldives

August 2012, Kenya

“My husband and I needed an experienced outdoor wedding photographer for our Kenya Safari Wedding. We are so glad to have found Nishan. We love his work because its very natural yet artistic. He captured all the beautiful memories of our safari trip with friends and family as well as the day of the wedding. We also did a separate wedding photo shoot in the wild which was quite challenging since it was in an unfamiliar setting and animals in the wild are very unpredictable. The photos turned out to be wonderful nonetheless. Nishan also put together an awesome digital photo book for us that we proudly shared with everyone. Overall we were very pleased and have recommended Nishan to our friends. In fact, a good friend of ours saw our wedding photos and then asked Nishan to be a second photographer for their Bali wedding even though they’ve already hired one locally. They told me later that they were a lot happier with Nishan’s work.

Keep up the great work Nishan!”

Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

Louise Carver5 star

We had Owen as our Wedding photographer last weekend as Villa Padierna Palace Hotel. The hardest decision we had to make (after my dress of course!) was who to have as our photographer. We were sent lots of websites to look through to help with our choice, but right away Owen stood out to me as his photos were the most natural. I couldn't have been happier with our choice, Owen was the loveliest man and made me feel completely at ease. I don't think there has been one person who hasn't commented on how lovely and easy going he was... Particularly the girls... (the Irish accent helped!). I was very nervous to see any photos afterwards but I didn't need to be, he has captured everything we wanted and I have only seen highlights so far. Even my now husband (who is notoriously hard to please!) had said how happy he is with he outcome. Myself and my family would like to pass on a huge thank you for working so hard and really making the day for us. If I had to do it all over again would I choose Owen? Most definitely x x

 

Vladimir Liñán, Cancun, Mexico

Vladimir I am laughing and crying!! These are the most wonderful photos. You are an INCREDIBLE photographer. I am so so grateful for you and Coco!!!! I am speechless. I don’t know how to thank you – you captured the most beautiful parts of the best day of our lives. I am so thankful.

Much love to you both! I hope we see each other again.

 

Love, 

Lauren & Blake , Cancún México.

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Mario was such a pleasure to work with during our wedding, we absolutely love how our photos came out. Everyone who has seen them has been in awe at how beautiful they are. I have heard over and over that they are the best wedding photos anyone has seen yet. People can see in our photos how much fun my husband and I were having and can see how in love we are. Mario brought that all out in his photos. Very impressed with everything. Anytime I emailed Mario he got right back to me. We received our discs only a few weeks after the wedding and I was able to look at the proofs through his site within two weeks which was great!
I would highly recommend Mario to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. I was very picky about who we hired and did a lot of research prior to finding him and I am so happy we ended up hired him.
