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
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

 

Kristopher Gerner, Wilmington, North Carolina

Kristopher is wonderful! I had seen his work from other weddings and knew he was the photographer I wanted to go with. He is amazing, he gets shots that you didn't even know he was around for. He captured everything from our day and even more. I thought we were going to lose out on the wedding party and family photos because it rained (poured) on our wedding day, but he managed to find another location inside the venue and got some amazing shots. He even got us our photos quickly and presented it in a beautiful album for us! I would absolutely recommend him for a wedding or any type of photo shoot, he is incredibly talented.

Lupe Arguello, Cancun, Mexico

Lupe and Agustin are amazing!! My hubby and I got married in August and couldn't have chosen more perfect photographers to capture our day! We are thrilled with the pictures and can't stop staring at them! They are so easy to work with and truly know what moments to snap photos of . Thanks again!! Xo

Stefano Lunardi, Villach; Austria

Our wedding has been in June 2015 and the photos created during the whole day are marvelous. The more often we see them, the more we love them. They are genuine, natural and still artistic and special and show that Stefano is a real high-level professional.

The photographs capture unvarnished all the emotional moments of this day and if we look at them it seems we are once more in the middle of our wedding day.

Unfortunately, we had only a very vague memory of all the impressions of the day, but because of the continuous photo story everything was kept and came back to our mind again.

Another incredible fact is that during the whole day we never really noticed a photographer, but nevertheless, they have been everywhere and have seen everything worth taking a photo.

And despite the short time for our couple-pictures (approx. 20 mins) some real wonderful motifs were created – other photographers need hours for such perfection. If you choose Stefano, this is included in your package!

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek is a cut above the rest!! He is extremely talented & very passionate about his work. For our outdoor wedding reception, he captured the most beautiful photos that had a magical quality of light. He took all of the family standard shots in such an efficient way that my husband & I even got a chance to enjoy our cocktail hour! He was not in our face or intrusive during the wedding at all, yet he still got all of the shots. He was so well organized & he always returned my calls or emails very quickly. Jacek loves to photograph & the proof of that is obvious in the stunning photos he takes. He is an artist & was a joy to work with. My husband, my family, and I are so glad that he was our photographer. I could not be happier - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACEK!

Michelle Huber, Twin Cities, MN

Michelle and Trent were AMAZING! They were extremely professional and friendly, and they made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken. Michelle and Trent were with us all day taking photos and they turned out absolutely incredible. We loved having two photographers on our... Read More wedding day because they were able to capture the same situation/photo from different angles. We had a blast with Michelle and Trent; they were constantly making us laugh and it really felt like they cared about our wedding day as much as we did. We had many compliments from our wedding party and other guests on the quality of photos and professionalism from Michelle and Trent. Their photos are truly unmatched, and we believe we could not have chosen a better pair to photograph our wedding. We would highly recommend their services!!

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

Todo comenzó el día que decidimos casarnos y fue así donde en todo este cuento decidimos que Luis Cano y su grupo de fotógrafos inmortalizaran esta gran experiencia.
La respuesta que mi esposa Marisol y yo vivimos fue más que la esperada, unos 20 días antes de la boda no contábamos con que nos harían un estudio fotografico pre boda, nos dejaron sorprendidos con tan excelentes fotos. !Que se nos venía para este día tan especial!.
Cumplimiento, conjugado con el profesionalismo y el amor a servir, a dejar este hermoso momento inmortalizado en el lente de una cámara, el no tener que preocuparnos por decirles que hacer, que momento captar, no se sienten en todo el evento.
Es así como el resultado está lleno de felicidad, las miradas, las caricias, las sonrisas, el espacio todo en general hace parte de tan maravillosas fotos.
Mil gracias Luis Cano y a todo su equipo de trabajo, gracias por permitir con su profesionalismo que nuestra boda sea recordada por siempre.

Nuevamente mil y mil gracias
Altamente agradecidos, Marisol y Mauricio”

Lukas Bezila, Vienna, Austria

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was honestly the best vendor we worked with throughout the entire wedding. He showed up early, stayed late, and took the most incrediable pictures. His pictures were so creative and beautiful. He captured moments of my wedding that I didn't even see! I was blown away when we received our photos back. He is worth every penny!!
