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
Cadoret Ossama, Bordeaux, France

We were very fortunate to have Ossa to document our wedding / family trip to Luberon area.
He is personal, sincere and creative. His unique perspective and sensitivity for the light and surroundings have led to amazing photographs.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 2-day photography sessions with him!

Случайное знакомство на просторах сайта mywed сразу предвещало авантюру! Общаясь с Владимиром, оба загорелись (я-невеста и он-фотограф) идеей впервые попасть на Кубу и запечатлеть контрастные просторы. Да, было много негатива на свадебных форумах, но Вова не побоялся "обещанных" проблем с проведением фотосессий на территории Кубы. За это-отдельная благодарность ему! Так получилось, что сначала мы отдыхали совместно с мужем и Вовой и так сдружились и раскрепостились, что два дня "работы" под чутким объективом профессионала прошли на одном дыхании. Впечатление было, что мы всего лишь прогуливались по Гаване, а незаметный объектив Владимира "подсмтрел" за нашими счастливыми моментами. Стоит отметить, что как только Вова берет в руки камеру, незаметный "включатель" поворачивается в его сознании и он абсолютно и полностью отдается работе. Спасибо большое за профессионализм и инициативность хоть и опасных но таких эффектных ситуаций для незабываемых кадров! Мы с мужем Дмитрием безмерно рады такой находке: друге и профессионалу в одном лице! Ура!

"We just went through the pictures and we are absolutely thrilled! You have an amazing eye - the pictures are aesthetically beautiful, interesting and really captured the event perfectly. I knew you were good, and I knew my choice was good - but now I think my choice was positively inspired. There are literally too many good pictures: we don't know which ones to get prints of! Thank you so much for the incredible craftsmanship; you're a real artist."

Luis Miguel Hernández, Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico

The location was breathtaking, overlooking the water with the scent of the ocean as we said our vows in front of our family. The photographer from Ocean Photo took the most exquisite photos throughout the ceremony of my family and wedding party, as well as a private photo session by the Mayan ruins overlooking the cliff by the ocean! He captured the most amazing shots of our special day!

Cadoret Ossama, Bordeaux, France

We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Ossa Photo and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Ossa’s photos.

Both of us were so comfortable with Ossa and his wife, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.

José Corpas, Seville, Spain

We really wanted our photographs to tell a story and capture all the special moments without being posed or awkward. We wanted to feel comfortable and feel like our photographer wasn't even there. We googled and found Nuar and from that very first click we knew we had found something special.

Living in England and finding a wedding photographer in Spain could have been difficult but from the very first email Jose put us at ease. They captured myself and Nick in our most natural self, they caught us laughing and enjoying each others company.

Finally the day came and we really could not have wished for more. Jose and Cris were professional, fun, helpful and we felt like they were guests at our wedding rather than doing a job. The care and time they put into our day was amazing and our we will be forever grateful. The special touches and the added extras they provide set them high above any other photographers. They have captured every smile, laugh, look of love, special moments and have not only given us the most amazing wedding album, they have given us a beautiful reminder of our wedding day. Everytime we look at them we are transported back to that day and those moments.

Our photographs are relaxed, natural and works of art. They provided us with the most amazing record of our special day and also gave us something even better; their friendship. Looking for a photographer? You have just found one.

The Ocean Photo Weddings team is a great team that is professional, responsive and produces high quality work! They did an amazing job of capturing my wedding day, both in photos and on video. I loved that they produced great quality photos and captured all of the "special moments" without blocking our guests' view. Luis Miguel and his team were easy to get in contact with prior to our destination wedding and throughout our stay in Mexico. They made an effort to make my husband and I feel comfortable and special during our photo session. I 100% recommend that you choose them as your photography and videography vendor; you will not regret it!

Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".
