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
Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

After the wedding is over and the memories begin to fade, photographs are a special way to remember the moments of such an important occasion. Adrian and Ivonne do an exceptional job capturing candid shots and the emotion that goes with it.

After falling in love with his photos from his website, my husband and I were able to “meet” Adrian via Skype, where he answered all our questions and explained his process of shooting a wedding.

His soft and quiet demeanor was great; most of the time you didn’t even know he was there, and he was able to capture you right in the moment – not stiff or posed. What you get are beautiful, genuine, emotional photographs. I find myself looking through our photos often and am transported back to that moment, that feeling.

I would highly recommend Adrian and Ivonne.

Viktor und Ekaterina

Am 19.08.2014 haben wir unsere Kirchliche Hochzeit gefeiert. Einen wirklich guten Video- und Fotografen zu finden stand natürlich ganz oben auf der Liste. Im Internet sind wir zufällig auf Volodimir und Igor gestoßen und waren direkt von ihren Fotos und Videos begeistert. Die Organisation war unkompliziert, zur Hochzeit sind alle pünktlich gekommen, die Atmosphäre war offen und sehr positiv! Alle Gäste hatten Spaß mit den Fotografen und strahlen auf allen Bildern. Die Fotos sind einfach traumhaft geworden und beim Video stehen mir immer Tränen in den Augen. Wir können IVASH Photography nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für so tolle Erinnerungen!

Richard Howman, Bristol, United Kingdom

We searched online for photographers in London and trawled close to a hundred sites before being captivated by the pictures by Rich Howman. As soon as we spoke to Rich, we knew he was the photographer for us. He was the epitome of friendly and professional, with a great sense of humour to match. He put our anxieties to rest and listened to our requests carefully as well as offering great advice.

On the day, he came with his fantastic big grin and enthusiasm and worked his magic. For us, on the most beautiful day of our lives, he fitted in completely to our party; being able to both take photographs of the wedding without intruding, but also being part of the fun. So many of our friends also said what a great laugh he was! He even stayed longer than we had arranged without any fuss when things overran. We have received the photos and couldn’t be happier. They are absolutely perfect with a great mix of moments and posed shots. Using his skill, Rich managed to make two very camera shy people look relaxed and happy! Every time we look at them it’s like we are back on that wonderful day and we are extremely glad that he was there to capture it all.

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

There are not enough words for me to describe the value of Mario's service to us. Firstly, let me start by saying that I was a travel agent in Toronto, Canada, when I planned MY destination wedding in the Bahamas, in July 2011. I came across Mario's work on-line and saw that he had a great eye for group shots and for capturing intimate moments and emotions....which were both key for me because if all else failed on the wedding day, (and it almost did), what I wanted more than anything were amazing pictures to capture the beauty of the day and the Bahamas...and Mario nailed it!!

He was on time, he was professional, his pricing was fair (worth every dime) and he was so pleasant to work with. One thing I loved was that he almost disappeared into the crowd, so he didn't get in the way of others wanting to take pictures, but didn't miss a beat either. He's truly gifted and anointed and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Sadly, in October, just 2 months after the wedding, my father was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away shortly after in February, and so those last pictures of my dad mean so much more to us. We now have these amazing pictures that have become precious memories that we truly treasure and are grateful to Mario for. He captured, what my father said was, the happiest day of his life and because they were some of the BEST pictures my dad ever took, we used many of them for his funeral.

So dearest Mario, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for putting your heart and soul into your work and may God continue to bless you, always!! :)

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is an amazing photographer. After looking at her website, my husband and I contacted her and asked if we could video chat. She immediately set something up for us. Right away she made us very comfortable. She was extremely approachable, flexible and understanding with all the questions we had. I was very nervous about having a photographer who lived in another country (we are from New York, but planned to have our wedding in Mexico). Susanna was more than helpful during this long distance process; she stayed in constant contact with us through email, and even provided us with additional resources during our planning process. During her travels, she made a stop in New York and was able to accommodate an engagement shoot in Central Park for us. The pictures came out amazing, even more than my husband and I could have asked for. We were more than excited when it was time for the wedding. Susanna did not disappoint. She met with us a few days before the wedding to discuss last minute logistics. The day of, Susanna was right on time and my husband and I let her capture whatever she thought was best. We were so glad that we did because looking through our pictures now we are amazed at how beautifully Susanna was able to capture our day. Her pictures brought me to tears as she was able to capture the love, romance, passion, fun and once in a lifetime moments that we now can cherish forever. I am thankful for her services and would highly recommend her for any occasion.

Evert Doorn, Bussum, Netherlands

“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests.  I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special day.”
