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.

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!!!!!

Wedding – is the only one unique and incredible day that unfortunately could have been partially forgotten because of the state of the total delight and ecstasy…if not Oleksiy Syrotkin. Thanks to him all the happiness that we felt, all the moments of joy, parental tears and strong hugs of friends will stay with us forever. He doesn’t make photos; he engraves the most important and the most precious moments for heart. Total absence of posing, nothing is fake, and everything is sincere and real. Of course, we were expecting and hoping to get beautiful pictures, but we have obtained unbelievable masterpieces, that completely impressed us and made cry out of happiness again not only us, but also everyone who have seen them. It’s been already more than 3 months since the wedding day, and we still can’t stop being happy from what we see. We have never regretted that exactly Oleksiy was with us on this day. Because he can make your personal fairytale become eternal. Huge and sincere THANK YOU from all of us!!!

We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Ossa Photo and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Ossa’s photos.
Both of us were so comfortable with Ossa and his wife, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.

"Thank you soooo much for the photos!!! I love them all :-)!!! Again, thank you very much for all these beautiful pictures and spending your time for this." Elena, Florence, Kentucky.
When she say's "Capturing the Emotion" BOY was she on point! Michelle Huber Photography delivered like no other vendor I have ever worked with! She is so fun to work with. From the very initial appointment at the coffee shop with my mom to the Big Day, Michelle is the epitome... Read More of class, talent, and professionalism. Michelle worked with Mike and me during our engagement sessions so that we felt comfortable and beautiful for our wedding. She answered all of our questions and has this magical packet (she has developed through out her years of photographing weddings) that helps you develop your day of timeline. Its every brides DREAM trust me. Being organized and having structure was such an amazing feeling. If I had questions all I had to do was ask! If you want a photographer who knows what she is doing and does it with a smile on her face and ensuring you have one on yours, Michelle Huber Photography is the one for you! I can't say enough thank you's and give enough stars. She has given us the gift of capturing our day and we will treasure our photos for generations to come. #IfoundmytrueloveANDphotographerforlife. Something I have to say about Michelle and Trent is it was really cool to see how complimentary they were of my other wedding vendors. They all worked so well together to make our day perfect and We couldn't have been happier, Thank you both! Love, The Hauge's
Mark, we could not be happier with your work. Your professionalism, important and relevant pieces of advice throughout the day. I particularly remember you saying to me outside the church to walk slowly up the aisle as it was a short aisle so it wouldn't take long to get to the top! Brilliant advice and really made me savour the moment with dad and the start of the aisle and take everything in. You were just a pleasure to have around throughout the day, we always felt comfortable with you and I had complete trust in you which really helped us enjoy the day and I feel you were pivotal in the relaxed atmosphere that so many people have commented on since! Your guidance to have photos near Cromleach was also great rather than wasting precious time travelling for photos..it meant we got to the reception about 3.30 and had loads of time to spend with guests so we never felt under pressure during the day. And the album and print that you gave us! Just fabulous!!! To have the album so quickly is just unbelievable!!! We have your Print framed and hanging already! The album is beautiful and our parents love their mini albums as they can bring them to work/ when meeting friends and show them photos! What more can we say! Can't sing your praises enough, apart from being an amazing and talented photographer it is your effortless demeanor and quiet disposition that really sets you head and shoulders above other photographers. You perfectly documented our day and we will be forever grateful! I must get all this onto feedback on your webpage or please feel free to take from my comments above. Andrew and I give you 6 ūüĆüūüĆüūüĆüūüĆüūüĆüūüĆü! Many Thanks, Susan & Andrew ūüėä
