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.

Dear Marcel and Meher,
Thank you both very much for these amazing photos.
We opened a bottle of wine and re-lived the wedding day through your photos, and we loved every single one of them (and there were some really funny, brilliant ones that made us laugh!)
Thank you again for being with us on the day!!

Hi! Thank you so much for the pictures!! They are great!!!! It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day. Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Hi Marcel & Meher,
The pictures are truly spectacular!!! Thank you both so, so much. You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away. I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day. Can’t tell you how happy it made me. We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.
Thank you again!!!
Rachel & Nikki

" We are from Brussels-Belgium. For our engagement photo shoot, we were looking for a great photographer who truly captures emotions, warm lights, and who would representate the best our relationship on pictures. We booked Stefano from Belgium with a lot of questions that he respond quickly. That was for us very important because he always respond to all our questions and gave us advice before the photo shoot. We had a good feeling before because he was transparent.
In italy, he called us before he arrived and was very punctual, we really appreciated his professionalism. Stefano was nice and Humourous and allways smiling so we were confortable to do the session with him. He has great attention on details and that makes his work very creative because he has eyes for beauty and emotions. When I saw his work on his website, I knew he would do Beautiful pictures but in fact he exceeded all our expectations. Really, We can't imagine another photographer doing our precious photos.
We want to thank him for his patience, the fact that he stay more time just to do great pictures, and for our spritz at the end of our session. Thank to his assistent to, they are both very nice guys!
Stefano sent to us the pictures in time with printed ones. He sent us a big surprise: a videoclip with our pictures, and my gosh, it was very touching, that song was the perfect one! Stefano, we love you!!!!!
Our family and friends have complimented the stunning photos and they definitely want him as our weddingphotographer even if he's far from Belgium! they really want him and we to!
So, if you are looking for a really great photographer and charming person, don't hesitate, Stefano is your guy! Lucky you!

Adamo was the most fantastic wedding photographer I could have ever imagined!
As a destination bride, I wanted to be sure to capture all of the memories on our Big Day. Some how, Adamo managed to not only capture those memories, but to paint a picture of everything that went on that I missed in the hustle & bustle of being a bride! Him & his team were professional, timely, easy to communicate with, and most of all fun-loving and willing be truly be a part of the experience! He expertly photographed THOUSANDS of pictures while somehow managing to be invisible! In addition to that, his turn-around for proofs was in a matter of weeks & I'm so thrilled with the results I look at them every day! : ]
If you want to rest assured that you've booked the best, book Adamo.
We really wanted our photographs to tell a story and capture all the special moments without being posed or awkward. We wanted to feel comfortable and feel like our photographer wasn't even there. We googled and found Nuar and from that very first click we knew we had found something special.
Living in England and finding a wedding photographer in Spain could have been difficult but from the very first email Jose put us at ease. They captured myself and Nick in our most natural self, they caught us laughing and enjoying each others company.
Finally the day came and we really could not have wished for more. Jose and Cris were professional, fun, helpful and we felt like they were guests at our wedding rather than doing a job. The care and time they put into our day was amazing and our we will be forever grateful. The special touches and the added extras they provide set them high above any other photographers. They have captured every smile, laugh, look of love, special moments and have not only given us the most amazing wedding album, they have given us a beautiful reminder of our wedding day. Everytime we look at them we are transported back to that day and those moments.
Our photographs are relaxed, natural and works of art. They provided us with the most amazing record of our special day and also gave us something even better; their friendship. Looking for a photographer? You have just found one.
Nichola + Nick.
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.

We received the pictures yesterday and I am absolutely happy with the results. You did an AMAZING job!!! Well done. I am not just a Skin Specialist but also a fashion Model so I am extremely fussy when it comes to photo shoots and you ticked all the boxes. (: I will definitely recommend you to anybody I know as I am extremely happy with the outcome. And good work has to be rewarded. I am glad I trusted you 100% and will let any other brides know. Hope you are doing well ! We shall keep in touch. ,"

"Jesse and Moira did the photography at our destination wedding this past October in Mexico. I was thrilled that they were willing to travel that far since I have always been impressed with their work and always had hoped to hire them for my own wedding. Our wedding definitely showed how well prepared they are and how wonderful they are at what they do. We had a traditional Mayan ceremony on the beach. To be totally honest we didn't know what all the ceremony involved so everything was a surprise. There was so much going on between dancers, and the Shaman, and the guests that I felt like I was missing parts of the ceremony while it was happening, but Jesse and Moira didn't miss a beat of our wedding. If I hadn't known better I would have said that they had photographed a Mayan ceremony before because they captured everything so perfectly while also being extremely discrete. We only had a few poses in mind and left the ideas of the other photos up to them since that is what they do after all. Each and every picture came out beautifully and we could not be happier with them. They started with the "getting ready" photos and did not stop capturing our day until after our night shoot on the beach. This was exceptionally important to us as not all of our friends and family were able to make it to our wedding so now we can show them all of our pictures that tell the story of our special day. I definitely recommend them, trust me you will not be dissapointed!"
