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
Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi. I see that a lot of people post asking for a good photographer. I just got married in positano and used adamo morgese. He isn't local but he travelled from near Rome to positano and didn't charge us extra ( as most told us they would). His prices were a fraction of some other quotes we received. Especially the local ones.

 

On the day he was fantastic. So energetic, passionate and willing to do whatever it took to get a shot. He actually jumped out of the moving bride vehicle and took photos from the side and then jumped back in. Whilst it was moving. And the shots are amazing. He captured beautiful moments in photographs naturally without posing. Some of the shots are so peefect we didn't imagine they would be that good.

He also had no maximum amount of photos like a lot of others did. And he gave us CDs with all the photos for our own use. (2400 all up).

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

To catch the moment; the intense moment you lived (and is now a blur in your mind), the moment that almost passed you by, the moment that was shared by people dear to you. This is what we wanted from our wedding pictures and we thank SOVISUAL PHOTOGRAPHY for making it happen. With their sensitivity, discretion and artistic approach, they gave us pictures that tell the story of that day in the most beautiful, natural and spontaneous way. Sandy & Odysseas are great professionals (by far more organized than this bride and groom!) but make you feel so at ease and relaxed, like the pictures are taken by your best friends.

Sandy & Odysseas, thank you for sharing the moments with us. Because we understand that only if you share the moment, can you capture it in such a meaningful and beautiful way!

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

São tantos detalhes, tanta coisa para resolver antes do casamento e no grande dia nada pode dar errado, daí a importância na escolha do profissional que acompanhará e registrará esse grande momento de nossas vidas. Falar do Fernando é fácil. Grande profissional, dedicado, comprometido e de um olhar único sobre o que tem em volta, as cenas e os detalhes. Ficamos muitos felizes com o resultado do seu trabalho e o quanto abrilhantou desde o ensaio, making of da noiva, cerimônia e a festa do nosso casamento.

Our wedding has been in June 2015 and the photos created during the whole day are marvelous. The more often we see them, the more we love them. They are genuine, natural and still artistic and special and show that Stefano is a real high-level professional.

The photographs capture unvarnished all the emotional moments of this day and if we look at them it seems we are once more in the middle of our wedding day.

Unfortunately, we had only a very vague memory of all the impressions of the day, but because of the continuous photo story everything was kept and came back to our mind again.

Another incredible fact is that during the whole day we never really noticed a photographer, but nevertheless, they have been everywhere and have seen everything worth taking a photo.

And despite the short time for our couple-pictures (approx. 20 mins) some real wonderful motifs were created – other photographers need hours for such perfection. If you choose Stefano, this is included in your package!

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to write a brief note about the legend that is Adamo Morgese!! I'm based in London and about 5 years ago my friends got married in Italy(Almalfi Coast). After careful consideration they decided to go with Adamo for their wedding pictures and I must say the album and the pictures all 800 of them captured the amazing day! Recently the bride's twin sister got married and without a thought chose Adamo to attend her special day in the UK. One of his skills is how he just blends into the occasion and takes fantastic photos whilst mixing with the crowd and getting the best reactions from everyone. He's not trying to take over the venue or the event and just goes about his great work in the background. Recommended without questions to anyone who wants a great album! You won't even want to have a video because he tells the story so well in his pictures!! Well done and keep up the good work Adamo!!

Carlos Calderon, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

I cannot speak highly enough about Carlos and Melissa from Car & Mel Photography who captured our special elopement. You are willing to go the distance...literally! After a drive from PV, 30+ minute boat ride with multiple stops along the way to Yelapa, climbing 400+ steps in the heat to reach the top of our resort, you were ready to jump in and capture all the magical moments until the last bit of light. You made us feel so comfortable and it was a pleasure to have you join us on our special day! You guys rock! Thank you for the amazing photos. I am in love with them all!

Yvette & James @ Verana Resort, Yelapa Mexico

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"We met Jesse and Moira at a Bridal Show about a year before our wedding. If you've been to a bridal show you know there are tons of photographers all wanting you to book with them. My husband and I talked to several. They handed us their brochures and shuffled us along not wanting to miss potential business walking by. None of them stood out, they all blended together and none made us feel good.

Then we met Jesse and Moira! We were first in awe of the amazing photography hanging in their booth. Their photos stood out! They were different in a great way! After talking to Moira for a few minutes I knew they were different. They didn't try to shuffle us along, they answered our questions, told us a little about their background and how it helps them in photography. Meeting them was sort of like finding "the dress". We knew they were it!

I was impressed with Jesse and Moira's planning leading up to the wedding. We met so we could tell them about a few wedding day surprises that we wanted captured. Jesse and Moira worked up a timeline and scouted the venue for great places to photograph. Moira called me with a few follow-up questions to make sure everything was perfect.

The day of the wedding was perfect. Moira and Jesse were in the background and captured the day perfectly. They didn't miss a thing and the images are beautiful candid reminders of our day. It's been three months since our wedding and I look at our pictures daily! They are beautiful!

I can't say enough good things about Jesse and Moira and would highly recommend them!"

Iʼm really not sure we could have had more fun with a wedding photographer than we did with you!

Your personality fit perfectly with our kind of style,you were a breeze to work with and so much fun to be around. You captured all the moments, random, important, candid, and posed with an edge and artistic beauty.

Thank you for so vividly bringing our memories to life, itʼs a gift we will always appreciate!
