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
Carlos Calderon, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I cannot speak highly enough about Carlos and Melissa from Car & Mel Photography who captured our special elopement. You are willing to go the distance...literally! After a drive from PV, 30+ minute boat ride with multiple stops along the way to Yelapa, climbing 400+ steps in the heat to reach the top of our resort, you were ready to jump in and capture all the magical moments until the last bit of light. You made us feel so comfortable and it was a pleasure to have you join us on our special day! You guys rock! Thank you for the amazing photos. I am in love with them all!

Joanna Carina, St Paul, MN United States

We used Carina Photographics for our engagement and wedding photos and I wish I could give her more stars as she was just fantastic to work with and her work is simply the best I have seen. From the moment we booked her to the final pictures she has been so easy and professional to work with. But what really sold us on her was her abilities to capture the moments on camera, as these pictures were all just stunning and over the top, the kind of pictures you see in high end magazines. Anybody can take pictures, but Joanna has a way of capturing the moment perfectly as every picture was simply breathtaking. We couldn't be happier with our choice In Carina Photographics and I highly recommend her. Thanks so much Joanna, we will have a lifetime of memories to always look back on.

We got the photos in the post and have watched the DVD.  They are fabulous and we are so delighted with them.  We could not have hoped for any better photographers. You guys were even better than we could have imagined.  We will gladly put a review on your website or Facebook if you wish. We now have a big problem to choose the best ones for the magazine :)

If you ever come to Galway in Ireland, please get in touch with us, and we will bring you for the best tapas outside of Barcelona!

“Our story it isn't a perfect fairy tale wedding story. However, our photographers’ craftsmanship tells a different story. Jesse and Moira are BEYOND amazing photographers. They're amazing people. Jesse and Moira flew into Boston several days beforehand, easing any fears I had of them not becoming familiar with the area and venue. They surveyed the land and took a walk around our 90 acre farm to find 'prime shooting locations'. The duo needed very little attention from me, and were independent on the morning of the wedding, professionally navigating their way around the property and through guests. I was a barrel of emotions on our wedding day in August. Jesse and Moira were there for us every step of the way. In the morning, despite the pouring rain, Moira kept me happy and calm while she clicked away at the details and kept my bridesmaids and I moving (it's easy to get sidetracked when there's a bunch of women in your tiny apartment) and Jesse captured all of the special moments with 'the boys.’ When things seemed to go awry, I found myself turning to Moira and asking for her advice. She handled each scenario I brought to her with professionalism and grace. As the day went on and a handful of alarming events took place (including but not limited to an ambulance arriving for a family member), Jesse and Moira became beacons for solace. They kept us smiling and moving, and ensured they captured beautiful moments we didn't even know were happening. At one point, while we were walking in the rain, I turned to Jesse and Moira and I told them that I didn't know if I could've done the day without them. Now, as I peruse our gorgeous wedding album, I still feel the same way. They captured the fairy tale wedding we didn't even quite realize we were having. Your wedding day is going to be complex and full of surprises (hopefully all good!)... there is no question on whom I recommend to take this journey with you and your to-be. Perfect team, perfect photos.”
