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.

"Joining your way together with the love of your life is one of the most important moments that you want to immortalize and remember forever. What better to do it through photography to capture those moments that will be recorded in your mind and heart, without a place to go wrong I can say Daniel that you captured each and every one of those little details that happened on that day that is for us the most beautiful in our history of love. Thank you for your professionalism and above all for having achieved some spectacular photographs that only when we see them we recreate our wedding again and again.

Daniel has done three shoots for us to date, he has displayed a professional demeanor on each occasion. He has the ability to encourage a comfortable atmosphere and will go the extra mile at any chance that he gets to make your day special. We are more than happy that we used Daniel to capture these special occasions in our life and look forward to keeping the tokens of our memories that he has created. We keep our album on our coffee table for all to see. Our family has gained a photographer for life and we are excited for Daniel to capture the rest of the moments that lie ahead of us.

Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

Owen, thank you for so beautifully capturing our wedding day at Tankardstown House, Co. Meath Ireland in June. When I came across your galleries I knew I loved your work; the light, elegance and style of photos. In the run up to the day I felt so comfortable and confident that you understood our style. Thank you for taking lots of photos that didn’t require any posing! The combination of documentary style photography and beautiful artistic shots of us is phenomenal! Oisin and I are simply in love with our photos from the day. Every time we look at them we’re just so happy because it captures both how beautiful and great craic the day was for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I highly recommend that everyone work you for any/ all occasion – wonderful experience and photos that we’ll look back on for years and years to come.

Andreu Doz, Barcelona, Spain

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!
