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.

Hello! Amazing photos! The book turned out amazing, many we have already shown them to are all excited! Thank you so much!


Kele Huertas & Fer Velasco , Sevilla, España

Elegir a los fotógrafos de nuestra boda fue una de las decisiones más claras que podíamos tener, ¡sin duda alguna tenían que ser ellos! Fernando y María Ángeles, dos vecinos de nuestra localidad cuyo trabajo como profesionales no tiene que envidiar a ningún otro fotógrafo, ni a nivel nacional, me atrevería a decir.

Hicimos nuestra preboda en Roma, con propuesta de Fernando. Nos pareció una locura pero, ¿por qué no?, ¡a fin de cuentas esos momentos de locura son los que nos dan vida! Después de vivir la experiencia y de ver el resultado, pensé que no podríamos asombrarnos aún más, ¡es realmente alucinante!

Pero es que con su buen hacer profesional, la pasión y constancia que le ponen a todo, el afán de superación, y la gran calidad humana que tienen, se superan con creces con cada trabajo que realizan. Son capaces de captar lo menos esperado, lo más emotivo, ¡el color, la luz, los momentos!

Por supuesto, enormemente agradecidos, tanto con su trabajo, como con su trato, porque realmente son dos adorables y encantadoras personas. ¡Ni que deciros tiene que las fotos de la boda son espectaculares!

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was our wedding photographer this year and was absolutely fantastic. We really wanted someone to capture the story of our day and not have a massive list of staged photographs with our guests hanging around waiting for them all to be done! This is exactly what we got. We love looking through our CD of photos as every single one has captured a story or special moment from the day. Jason is so talented at getting different angles and reflections as well as capturing sacred moments shared with family and friends. No request is too big or small. We can't believe some of the photos that were taken as we don't even remember having a camera pointed at us.
We are currently choosing which photos to go into the album and we are taking what seems like forever to decide as there are just too many fantastic ones to choose from. It's a really tough job. Again we can't believe how quick the turn around is... we had preview shots the next day and 50 photos to look at whilst on honeymoon. On arriving back a week after the wedding the full 260 photos were on disk (in both viewing and printing mode) ready for us to see. Unbelievable - I have never heard of any other company having such a short turnaround but still with amazing quality.
Lastly - if the budget can stretch we would definitely recommend the pre-wedding/engagement shoot. We were so thrilled with the photos from this. We managed to get our parents Christmas presents from the photos and have our own canvas from this on the wall. Plus it is great to work with Jason and get to know him and used to the whole situation before the day of the wedding.
Don't give it a second thought... book. If we could do it all over again we would book Jason in a heartbeat. Thanks again Jason for your incredible work." Amy and Andy Leftley.

Olya, hello. Today we looked at all the photos and really wanted to thank you again. Thank you very much, super photos. Thank you once again, good luck in the professional field!


James Sturcke, Logroño, Spain

“Many thanks for everything! Your work during the wedding was fantastic. Many people asked me: ‘Who’s the fun photographer?’ or ‘is he a family friend?’… Which shows that not only did you take photos but you know how to win over the people. It was the right decision to go with you. Many thanks again for making everything so easy.” María, Zaragoza.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.

If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.

The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.

I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

Best regards,
Ivan & Jenny.

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

As Tennessee Williams once said: “Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.”

Sandy & Odysseas of SoVisual Photography caught and framed with their timeless vision many moments like these in our wedding. Their photographs became memories and those memories turned into life for us (recalling your wedding day as a “happy blur”, there’s a reason why this is such a cliché).

Sandy & Odysseas are amazing professionals with a positive vibe such as the people you need by your side on a special day like this.

We are extremely thankful for their existence on our wedding!

Hugs & kisses!
