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.

Olexiy Syrotkin, Rome, Italy

Dear Olexiy. You did an absolutely amazing job in capturing all the emotions and unique moments of our most important day, which you thus made memorable. Working with you was truly comfortable, relaxed, and easy-going. Your pictures are great pieces of work because your eyes always discovered things and we would never have seen or combined. Olexiy, you are not only an excellent photographer. We also truly appreciated having you as a guest in our parents’ home.

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is AMAZING. We loved her SO much! She wanted our photos to be extra special, so she took us away from Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The scenery at that island is much more majestic than what could have been captured in the hotel zone, which we very much appreciated. Susanna was always very responsive. That is actually one of the many reasons I chose her for our special day. She has a unique eye. If you want your images to be different than anything you've ever seen before, then pick Susanna. I guarantee you, your friends and family will be in awe of your photos. I can't say enough positive things about Susanna. We are overjoyed and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!! Thanks again Susanna!

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"We absolutely loved having Moira and Jesse photograph our wedding. Not only were they professional and extremely good at what they do, they were also fun to hang out with and a pleasure to have around the day of our wedding. We chose them after seeing a friend’s wedding photos on Facebook. We got married at sunset on November 22nd and I wanted someone who had experience photographing sunset or night shots and Jesse La Plante Photography absolutely did. Our photos turned out beautiful and even better than we thought considering the weather was not cooperating with us. What Jesse and Moira captured with the wind and clouds was spectacular and we fell in love with the photos the minute we saw them. They also did a panoramic of the city scape view from our venue and included it in our photo album. Thanks Jesse and Moira for being a part of our wedding day and capturing the memories so beautifully."

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between me and the groom about the type of camera one should use and the technicality the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the photos and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that it wasn’t about the camera but about the photographer.

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We recently got married on the Amalfi Coast in Italy with Adamo Morgese as our photographer. I had searched for a photographer who could offer us natural photos that didn't require any posed shots and who we could trust to document our entire day - Adamo without a doubt was the guy for us.


Adamo managed to capture our entire day from getting ready, the ceremony, walking through cobbled streets to drink on terrace right down to the final reception venue through to the sun setting and he captured it all beautifully.


Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and you need to have someone you can trust to put as much time and energy into it as you have planning it and you should look no further than Adamo. He travelled with me to the ceremony and kept me calm and giggling the entire way. My guests loved him and when he left the entire reception waved him off. Adamo had a great eye for a photo and you will not find anyone more helpful. I will be eternally grateful to Adamo for all of his help throughout the preparations, day itself and the communication afterwards. He came to our wedding as a photographer and he left as our friend!! Welcome in our home anytime. Love Chris & Charlie Heywood x

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

Todo comenzó el día que decidimos casarnos y fue así donde en todo este cuento decidimos que Luis Cano y su grupo de fotógrafos inmortalizaran esta gran experiencia.
La respuesta que mi esposa Marisol y yo vivimos fue más que la esperada, unos 20 días antes de la boda no contábamos con que nos harían un estudio fotografico pre boda, nos dejaron sorprendidos con tan excelentes fotos. !Que se nos venía para este día tan especial!.
Cumplimiento, conjugado con el profesionalismo y el amor a servir, a dejar este hermoso momento inmortalizado en el lente de una cámara, el no tener que preocuparnos por decirles que hacer, que momento captar, no se sienten en todo el evento.
Es así como el resultado está lleno de felicidad, las miradas, las caricias, las sonrisas, el espacio todo en general hace parte de tan maravillosas fotos.
Mil gracias Luis Cano y a todo su equipo de trabajo, gracias por permitir con su profesionalismo que nuestra boda sea recordada por siempre.

Nuevamente mil y mil gracias
Altamente agradecidos, Marisol y Mauricio”

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.

Kristopher Gerner, Wilmington, North Carolina

Kristopher is wonderful! I had seen his work from other weddings and knew he was the photographer I wanted to go with. He is amazing, he gets shots that you didn't even know he was around for. He captured everything from our day and even more. I thought we were going to lose out on the wedding party and family photos because it rained (poured) on our wedding day, but he managed to find another location inside the venue and got some amazing shots. He even got us our photos quickly and presented it in a beautiful album for us! I would absolutely recommend him for a wedding or any type of photo shoot, he is incredibly talented.
