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
Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico, while living on the eastern end of Long Island, was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. While I thought I had everything under control, my husband reminded me that we needed to find a wedding photographer.

We began the process by researching photographers within Playa del Carmen and/or the Riviera Maya area. We came across the name Adrian Bonet and his beautiful website of wedding photos. It was exactly what we both were looking for – candid shots with some formal ones mixed in. We wanted to capture the experience, gestures and overall excitement of not only us but also most importantly our guests.

The day of our wedding, Adrian and his assistant Ivonne, were exactly what we hoped for. They artistically captured moments that at times we had no idea about and neither did our guests, and we loved it! Adrian and Ivonne were calm, cool and collected and their candidly artistic photographs displayed just that.

My husband and I are so gracious and appreciative of how every single shot came to life and ecstatic to hear our loved ones talk about how much they cannot stop looking at our wedding photos. What great memories Adrian and Ivonne captured, and we are forever grateful.

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best regards,
Laura & Brook.

Kristopher Gerner, Wilmington, North Carolina

Having already seen Kristopher's work at my sister's wedding it was not even a question on who I wanted to use for our wedding. He was so accommodating on our wedding day and let us take pictures in a relaxing manner. No awkward poses and we also didn't have to wait around for him to get the job done! He covered the guys pre-ceremony, he covered the ceremony, and also the reception. We can't thank him enough!

Andy Duback, Stowe, Vermont

OMG!!!! These are incredible!!! We are looking through now and haven't gotten through them all but wanted to write back right away to say that we are so so excited and blown away. Thanks SO SO much!!! -Ali & Tom

Marcos Valdés, Querétaro, Mexico

Marcos is not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing human being. His work and attention to detail are exemplary. His professionalism is outstanding. However above all these things, it is his character as a person that is truly remarkable. I feel blessed and honored to have had Marcos be our photographer on our big day. Highly recommend!

Kele Huertas & Fer Velasco , Sevilla, España

Desde que decidimos casarnos sabia que debía encontrar a alguien especial que plasmara ese momento y también sabia que no debía buscar mas allá de vosotros. Nadie duda de vuestra profesionalidad, vuestros innumerables clientes lo demuestran pero y en lo personal, ¿que decimos?….. pues que sois únicos sacando sonrisas, aplacando nervios, compartiendo vivencias; sois buenas personas, de esas que no olvidas…, vosotros tenéis una gran responsabilidad, sois los encargados de hacernos recordar cada momento vivido ese día, ese detalle que no apreciamos pero que vosotros supisteis ver, aquella mirada, aquel gesto que por simple que sea Mª. Ángeles lo ha hecho especial y lo capturó con su objetivo único, responsables de las lagrimas de emoción que quizás surjan como aquel día cuando nos entregasteis el álbum de preboda. Sois tan cómplices como nosotros de esta locura, bendita locura!!. Esta niña de rostro dulce no hubiese podido describir mejor tantas emociones sentidas en aquellas calles de Sevilla. Al ver aquel resultado respiramos tan aliviados que la mañana de la boda los nervios no existían. Siempre tendremos palabras de gratitud para vosotros porque además de vuestro magnífico trabajo nos llevamos mil emociones compartidas, confidencias, anécdotas….. y eso no puede pagarse con dinero. Nos quedamos con vosotros para todos y cada unos de los momentos especiales que aún nos faltan por vivir….. Mil gracias.
