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.

The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.
When we started planning our wedding, photography was near the bottom of our list. After 14 years together we had our fair share of photos, and the typical wedding photos were not our style. We did, however, appreciate and value the idea of capturing our wedding to be able to reflect back and remember the day, so we were struggling satisfying both of these perspectives.
Shayne had a great vibe, professional but laid back. Looking at his portfolio we could tell he had an eye for great photos. Our fears of boring, cold, lifeless photos went away

Right after i had my first visit to SiuMing, I already knew you are the only person who could give me what I longing for~
We had a crazily head spinning big day, you are not only just capturing the valuable moments that I might not see it myself on the day, but also beautifully recorded. I then realized you gotta be a superman-like multi-tasking skills to be a truly professional photographer! I know I would not missed a single moments because I have you guys~ You and your team performed far beyond excellence, without you guys, my wedding would not be as smoothed and successful.
I am truly thankful and blessed to have SiuMing and your team on my big day. Looking forward to see your art pieces, with me and Chris on them~
"I received the pictures yesterday and I'm obsessed with them! I can't stop starring at them - they are so great! You did an amazing job and were really great to work with too! The wedding went by so fast so now I get to relive it all through the pictures which has been so much fun Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"
I love these!! You are are amazing! I've already been recommending you to others!!!
We recently had our wedding day and trash the dress photos with Nuar Fotografía. Well, what can we say ... WOW is a good start! ...
Life time memories captured perfectly and beautifully by two amazing people; not only professionally but also personally.
From the very start of our communication, Jose and Cris created a sincere connection with us. When looking at their photos we had no worries about the quality they would produce. However, living in the UK and marrying abroad, we were still apprehensive about choosing the right photographer but their communication was fantastic throughout and they immediately made us feel at ease ... We knew we'd picked the right people for our wedding!
Their after service also went above and beyond our expectations and they did everything they could to ensure we were given the most beautiful memories for life, in two stunning albums. On the day, Jose and Cris were complete professionals. We didn't even know they were there half the time and only now know by looking at the amazing pictures they captured without us realising!!!
We can not recommend these two people highly enough and also class them as our friends now. We are forever in their debt for capturing our special day with such magical photography! Thank you Nuar Fotografia!!!!!

“El día de nuestra boda fue maravilloso y una de las cosas que hizo que lo fuera, fue el profesionalismo de Luis y su equipo de trabajo. Desde el momento en que nos hizo la cotización hasta el momento de entregarnos el trabajo final nos sentimos seguros de que sería un trabajo impecable y súper profesional. En ningún momento, en el día de la boda, nos sentimos presionados o perseguidos por ninguno de los fotógrafos y eso hizo que salieran unas fotos hermosas y muy naturales porque no sentíamos presión para tomar las fotos, con ellos sentíamos mucha confianza como si estuviéramos con cualquier otro de nuestros invitados. El momento en que recibimos el trabajo finalizado fue increíble, no podíamos creer lo bien hecho que estaba todo, lo hermoso de las fotos y lo bien presentadas, de verdad lograron hacernos revivir el día de nuestra boda y lo hacen de nuevo cada vez que las miramos. Con base en todo eso podemos decir que escogimos y tuvimos el privilegio de tener, el día de nuestra boda, el mejor equipo de fotógrafos acompañándonos y de seguro una de las empresas con mayor profesionalismo y responsabilidad. Sólo queda por decirles de nuevo: GRACIAS!” – Natalia y Jairo
Dear Lukas, the pictures are incredible. I have to look at the pictures again and again. Thank you very much for being part of our wedding

"Ja, da bleibt noch unser toller Fotograf... dem wir ein ganz großes Lob ausprechen müssen, die Bilder sind so super getroffen und eine wo wunderschöne Erinnerung, die für immer bleibt.
Es sind einfach die Momente zu spühren...
Ich schaue mir die Bilder momentan noch (2 Wochen nach der Hochzeit) fast jeden Tag an und bin total begeistert, wie man es schafft, die Bilder so zum Ausdruck zu bringen!
Vielen Dank dafür!"

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.
I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.
Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.
After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!
I’ll rate him with 5 stars.
Guilherme, sem palavras pra descrever o quão verdadeira estão nossas fotos, nós amamos cada minutinho desse dia e está tudo aí, na cara e no sorriso de cada uma delas, sem dúvida emoção transbordando pra todos os lados… Seu trabalho é realmente incrível e sua tranquilidade e jeitinho amigo é teu bem maior, obrigada por tudo e parabéns pelo profissionalismo, recomendo muito!
