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.

Would you like spectacular pictures taken outside of your place of origin?

 

Sometimes, the problem for a session of super pictures is obviously money, since a photographer can charge a lot to take your pictures at the beach.  In our case, we have opted to address this dilemma by taking advantage during your honeymoon, and take your pictures there. 

 

How does it work?

A location can cost you any where from $500 dollars to $1,500 dollars and they rent you that place per hour, or they give a package based on a certain amount of hours.  But when there is a flight deal, and you purchase your trip in advanced, it is much cheaper.  Therefore, it is more feasible to invest in an extra flight ticket, so that the pictures can be more spectacular and outside out of your place of origin, when you take your photographer to your honeymoon location and your pictures will be incredible.

 

 

If you do not have the financial means necessary to take your photographer to your honeymoon, think of a magical place where you would like your pictures taken, and that would be the location where you would purchase a round-trip for your photographer, so that he/she can take the pictures and return.

Hi Adamo

 

 

 

Thank you so much for being part of our wedding day in Sorrento at Cloisters Monastery. We are so glad we chose you to capture our wedding. I found you online and I fell in love with your photography style and you always responded quickly to us when we had any questions.

 

 

 

On the day of our wedding you came to the hotel room and took the shots that I had asked for. One of my favourites is the photo of me and my dad in the wedding car before we drove to Cloisters. The day was a fairytale and your photos captured every moment of this.

 

 

 

To all of you thinking of booking Adamo, please do. You will not be disappointed. He is a gem and a true professional, he will put you at ease too.

 

Much love Adamo

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!

Daniel West, Johannesburg, South Africa

I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.

We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.

We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.

Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how he captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.

Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.

Thanks so much Daniel!!!

Thank you both very much for these amazing photos.
We opened a bottle of wine and re-lived the wedding day through your photos, and we loved every single one of them (and there were some really funny, brilliant ones that made us laugh!)
Thank you again for being with us on the day!!

Hey Marcel and Meher!!

OMG---I loooove them all !! I got to share them with my parents and they were gushing with happiness. They were so impressed with yours and Meher's work.

Hi Marcel and Meher, 

We LOVE the pictures!  thank you both so much for doing an amazing job!  I can't stop looking at them.  You truly captured the day and we couldn't have hoped for any more :)

Thanks,
Chrissy & Vince

 

Hi!  Thank you so much for the pictures!!  They are great!!!!  It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day.  Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.  
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Wilma & Greg

 

Hi Marcel & Meher,

The pictures are truly spectacular!!!  Thank you both so, so much.  You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away.  I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day.  Can’t tell you how happy it made me.  We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.

Thank you again!!!

Best,

Rachel & Nikki

Pan fotograf Ludvík a jeho syn Štěpán nám fotili náš svatební den. Už na první pohled jsou to sympaťáci, kteří ne že jen udělají při práci kopec srandy, ale hlavně úžasně fotí. Jsme úplně nadšeni. Ví odkud fotit, co fotit, v jakých pózách a dokážou poradit. Díky nim máme nádherné vzpomínky v podobě dokonalých fotek, takže se můžeme vracet k našemu svatebnímu dni znova a znova. Ve skrytu duše doufáme, že se s nimi ještě někdy setkáme. Na 1000% doporučujeme všem, kteří chtějí kvalitní a krásné fotky! Navíc vše zpečetili doručením fotek v luxusní krabičce.
Moc Vám za všechno děkujeme a přejeme Vám, aby se Vám i nadále dařilo a byli jste šťastní. 

S pozdravem
