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.

Con Luis Cano no encontramos un fotógrafo, hallamos a un excelente profesional, una persona carismática, ética y llena de pasión por lo que hace.
No fue difícil adaptarnos o encontrar la respuesta a nuestras dudas, siempre estuvo aportando su opinión basada en su experiencia y buscando siempre nuestro agrado.
Gracias por haber hecho con nuestra experiencia un lindo recuerdo tangible para el resto de nuestros días. Un abrazo!” –Vivi y Javier.

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

Adrian & Ivonne:

We just wanted to write and express our deepest appreciation for making our wedding day complete! To us, photography was one of the MOST important aspects of the wedding day and we are beyond happy with our photos! We knew you were the right people when we came across your website and read the reviews.

While there are many photographers available in Riviera Maya, we found that your artistic expression, photo retouching, and commitment to success were worth the extra investment to have you travel from Mexico City and photograph our wedding. This was the best investment we could have made for our wedding day!

All of our guests commented on how attentive you were and noticed the amount of photos and differentiated approaches you were taking throughout the day. Your passion for photography is truly evident in every photo. My friends say I am the pickiest person they know, and you managed to exceed my expectations! We would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for high-quality photography. We are so happy we found you!

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Rinke is ontzettend enthousiast en goed in fotograferen. Hij heeft al eerder op de bruiloft van mijn broer foto's gemaakt.
Hij is heel geïnteresseerd en doet moeite om je te leren kennen. De fotoshoot was -ondanks de regen- heel leuk. Wij voelden ons op ons gemak en de foto's zijn heel mooi geworden.
Rinke, bedankt! - Martin & Caroline

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.

"Dear Marine, Just a few words to thank you with all our hearts for the wonderful work you have done with us on our wedding day: all photo albums are W O N D E R F U L , but ours stands out like a Rembrandt tale! We have looked at it together with some friends of ours who have been VERY IMPRESSED ! One of them is Luca Carla (new partners) who has a very unique and extremely difficult to please taste. We are extremely happy and want to thank you and give our best compliments for your wonderful job. You are an exceptional photographer! ,"
