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

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to write a brief note about the legend that is Adamo Morgese!! I'm based in London and about 5 years ago my friends got married in Italy(Almalfi Coast). After careful consideration they decided to go with Adamo for their wedding pictures and I must say the album and the pictures all 800 of them captured the amazing day! Recently the bride's twin sister got married and without a thought chose Adamo to attend her special day in the UK. One of his skills is how he just blends into the occasion and takes fantastic photos whilst mixing with the crowd and getting the best reactions from everyone. He's not trying to take over the venue or the event and just goes about his great work in the background. Recommended without questions to anyone who wants a great album! You won't even want to have a video because he tells the story so well in his pictures!! Well done and keep up the good work Adamo!!

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

São tantos detalhes, tanta coisa para resolver antes do casamento e no grande dia nada pode dar errado, daí a importância na escolha do profissional que acompanhará e registrará esse grande momento de nossas vidas. Falar do Fernando é fácil. Grande profissional, dedicado, comprometido e de um olhar único sobre o que tem em volta, as cenas e os detalhes. Ficamos muitos felizes com o resultado do seu trabalho e o quanto abrilhantou desde o ensaio, making of da noiva, cerimônia e a festa do nosso casamento.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"I have'nt even seen all of my wedding photos yet, but the 6 or 7 i have seen are AMAZING and i know that i am going to love them all when i see the final photos!
Jason was professional and allowed the day to progress naturally without forcing people to be in photos/posing the wedding party. I really did not want to be forced into "standard" wedding photos and jason did not do this - i certainly didnt want to spend all the day arranging my guests for photos and if you want this too then Jason is the perfect photographer! I actuall called him the "ninja photographer" as he just quietly took photos from the sidelines without anyone knowing, giving natural shots. Cannot recommend any more highly!" Cerys and Gavin.

Paulo Santos, Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom

'We have just received our wedding album and we absolutely LOVE it! Paul was so discrete on our wedding day and he has really captured the happiness of the day. We would recommend him without hesitation!'

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

We are very pleased to have you as a wedding photographer. Our vision were natural-looking, candid images, capturing the emotions of our wedding day. Jan Plachy and Marianna not only meet , but many times even exceeded our expectations. Shooting took place in a relaxed atmosphere, Jan and Marianna have a great professional but yet very human approach. Although both are quite reluctant to take pictures, initialnervousness soon faded. The result? Impressive photo with which we are extremely satisfied. Thank you!

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.

Martin Hecht, Göppingen, Germany

Hallo Martin,

wir waren sehr froh, dass du bei unserer "sehr kurzfristigen" Hochzeit nicht nur als Fotograf sondern auch 
als Gast mit deiner Familie Zeit gefunden hattest.

Wir hatten dich gebeten, nur einige Bilder über den Tag verteilt zu knipsen, sodass wir einige Momentaufnahmen von 
unserem "großen" Tag als Erinnerung für uns haben.

Wir hatten dir komplett frei Hand gelassen und du konntest deiner Kreativität freien Lauf lassen.

Ich weiß noch als du sagtest "ich mach dass schon, lasst euch überraschen....." und im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes.....
wir waren von dem Ergebnis überwältigt.

Jedes Mal, wenn wir uns die Bilder wieder anschauen, sind wir wieder mittendrin in unseren tollen Erinnerungen und können 
die Emotionen von diesem Tag wieder fühlen.

Uns fällt niemand ein, der diesen Tag, diese Momente besser, lustiger und persönlicher hätte festhalten können. Durch deine 
lockere und lustige Art hatten wir soviel Spaß und unsere Lachmuskeln wurden gut trainiert.

Du hast einen großen Teil dazu beigetragen, dass wir unseren Tag nie vergessen werden.

Wir sind dir sehr dankbar für die tollen Erinnerungen.

Bleib so wie du bist :-) auf ein paar Gläschen Wein

"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! ,"
