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.

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.
As Tennessee Williams once said: “Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.”
Sandy & Odysseas of SoVisual Photography caught and framed with their timeless vision many moments like these in our wedding. Their photographs became memories and those memories turned into life for us (recalling your wedding day as a “happy blur”, there’s a reason why this is such a cliché).
Sandy & Odysseas are amazing professionals with a positive vibe such as the people you need by your side on a special day like this.
We are extremely thankful for their existence on our wedding!
Hugs & kisses!
Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.
If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.
The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.
I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

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!

I have just spent few hours going over our wedding photos what you took from us. I can’t even express how amazed and happy we are from wonderful and beautiful job you did. ALL PHOTOS ARE AMAZING!!! These pictures are priceless and something what we will enjoy for a lifetime.When I started to plan our wedding and looking for the photographer, I saw your work and there were no question about it that I wanted you to be our photographer. From that moment when we met I knew that you would make our day special and so it was.You managed to capture each detail for us to remember and captured all the emotion we were experiencing that day. Pictures are amazing and absolutely beautiful.You are most gifted, talented, creative, professional, and kindest photographer. You have great personality and sense of humor and it was so easy and fun to work with you. You are passionate about your work and we can feel that and see it in pictures.Other day when we made trash the dress session on the beach and cenote was fantastic! Pictures are creative and unique. Session was so much fun and experience was fabulous in every way. I can’t wait to make it again next year in our anniversary!Thank you so much to sharing your gift with us.
