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

"Dear Marine, Just a few words to thank you with all our hearts for the wonderful work you have done with us on our wedding day: all photo albums are W O N D E R F U L , but ours stands out like a Rembrandt tale! We have looked at it together with some friends of ours who have been VERY IMPRESSED ! One of them is Luca Carla (new partners) who has a very unique and extremely difficult to please taste. We are extremely happy and want to thank you and give our best compliments for your wonderful job. You are an exceptional photographer! ,"

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was completely unobtrusive and discreetly captured natural photographs throughout our day, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. If it's a reportage style you're after, then Jason is the photographer for you. I would recommend the reportage style for any couple that are self conscious, or don't want to take time out of their wedding for endless posed photos. Jason will however take set pieces if you ask him and I think it's good to have a few. We were really happy with both the set piece photos and the natural reportage style ones. It's nice to look at the moments that were captured and know that they were real." Lucy and Adam.

Jeannine Pohl, St. Paul, MN

"Booking Jeannine as our photographer was perhaps one of the best wedding decisions my (now) husband and I made. It was apparent from the beginning (the introductory consultation) that Jeannine exceeded all expectations. Initially, I was drawn to Jeannine because of her creativity and her vision. The photos that I had seen were unparalleled and inspiring. I am a bit unconventional myself, and her fresh innovative twist on photography lent itself well to the vision I had for my big day. In fact, I could not have been more accurate, the photos exceeded all expectations and she is truly a visionary!

All that being said, what made me inevitably book Jeannine went far beyond her innovative eye; it was her charm, interpersonal skills, genuine passion for weddings/photography, etc. I have had numerous friends complain about their wedding photographers because of their lack of organization, their low quality photos, or their anxiety-provoking demeanor; however these things DO NOT characterize Jeannine in the least. In fact (and I kid you not), all of these friends have approached me since my wedding to comment on how lovely, creative, and organized Jeannine was (and this was before ever seeing any proofs)! Furthermore, many of these friends have now asked for Jeannine’s contact information for potential engagement/wedding photos. Now if that is not an endorsement, I do not know what is!

In sum, Jeannine’s work is some of the best I have ever seen and I believe this is a result of her uncanny ability to form genuine and meaningful relationships with her clients, her one-of-a-kind approach to the arts and photography, and her commitment to making your wedding day the absolute best it can be. I strongly encourage anyone looking for a wedding photographer to check out Jeannine, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!"

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

Tom and I looked at many portfolios online, including English photographers with the intention of flying them to Greece, however no photos took our eye like Sovisual Photography's! Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we now have the best memory to hold forever - our photos! Sandy and Odysseas did an exceptional job and fulfilled and surpassed all of our expectations. Not only do we have the most beautiful photo's, we also made two new friends! 

Owen Farrell, Marbella, Spain

Owen, thank you for so beautifully capturing our wedding day at Tankardstown House, Co. Meath Ireland in June. When I came across your galleries I knew I loved your work; the light, elegance and style of photos. In the run up to the day I felt so comfortable and confident that you understood our style. Thank you for taking lots of photos that didn’t require any posing! The combination of documentary style photography and beautiful artistic shots of us is phenomenal! Oisin and I are simply in love with our photos from the day. Every time we look at them we’re just so happy because it captures both how beautiful and great craic the day was for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I highly recommend that everyone work you for any/ all occasion – wonderful experience and photos that we’ll look back on for years and years to come.

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!

Danilo Muratore, Calabria, italy

If you are looking for a photographer who can translate into pictures the emotions of your big day, that expresses the spontaneity and naturalness of a gesture, a look, representing the various times of the day from different points of view, here, this photographer does for you! We were looking for the report service, for not having the stress of those who tells you to do the poses, and the service from the point of view has made our wishes, immediately putting everyone at ease thanks to their professionalism and sympathy.
