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
Maik Dobiey, Lima, Peru

Maik, queríamos tomarnos un minuto para agradecerte por estar con nosotros en todo el camino de nuestro matri - desde la sesión de novios, el shower y finalmente el matri el sábado - te hemos visto corretear, tirarte al piso, saltar con nosotros, y vivir cada segundo del día para que no se te escape nada. Es difícil poder escribir lo que uno siente en ese día, y es mil veces más difícil poder captarlo en una foto, y eso es lo que has hecho a la perfección. No podemos esperar a ver todas las fotos porque sabemos que serán ALUCINANTES! Te mandamos un beso y un abrazo respectivamente, y de nuevo, GRACIAS! - Majo y Ernesto

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Zibi Kuropatwinski, Salisbury, Wiltshire United Kingdom

Marie & Samu

Zibi brought so much more than just stunning photographs to our wedding day – he is warm and kind hearted; he clearly loves his job and was full of enthusiasm, even at the end of a very long day. Zibi was with us for almost 15 hours and from start to finish he was working hard to capture those special moments for us. He worked with us and our guests felt comfortable around him. Nothing was too much trouble, anything we asked, he jumped to do for us. I could not have asked for a better photographer… and the photographs themselves? Just wow! I’m so glad to have found him and would highly recommend him.

Eric Fabrer, Marseille, France

Joe,

I wanted to send you a quick note highlighting a wedding photographer by the name of Eric Fabrer (Marseille, France), whom I recently worked with. My name is David H...., a fellow Portlander, who decided to get married In France instead of here in Oregon. I normally do not write letters like this, but I feel like I need to for this individual. I only know about your specific association because he briefly spoke of it.
Not only did his photo’s turn out absolutely perfect, but (and the reason I am writing this letter) Eric’s friendliness and humor helped make our wedding perfect. As I’m sure you can imagine, two Americans getting married in France, surrounded by only the French language, can be quite challenging. Eric knew my fiancée (now wife!) and I were slightly uncomfortable, as we did not have family or friends attend our ceremony, but his personality truly helped make us feel comfortable. I’ve worked with other photographers before and none have I ever been so pleased with. I will always be indebted to Eric for helping make our wedding perfect.
I do not know how your specific industry or association functions, but should you ever come across Eric, please consider him.
Thank you, Joe.

Sincerely,
David H….

Daniel Maldonado, Quito, Ecuador

Very good work!! We are really happy with the professional work of Daniel, from the beginning worried about offering us the best service and making us feel confident. The day of the marriage was attentive to everything and never lacked in any moment. Thank you so much for everything Daniel !! Gavi and Diego

Emily Porter, Charleston, West Virginia, United States

The Oberports are amazing photographers, fun people, and now our friends (at least we think so- ha!). They are always super responsive, quick with advice, and calm in a crazy moment.

When my dress zipper broke an hour before the ceremony, Emily was positive and calming and did what she could to help my mom sew over the zipper. That is another thing- they aren't just photographers, they end up being a second and third pair of hands, confidants, and general badass, take-control kinda folks. They will make sure your grandparents are minimally inconvenienced for family photos and somehow are take-control but also very sweet while doing so.

The Oberports are the real deal!

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was the photographer at me and my wife's wedding back in June. He conducted himself in an incredibly Professional manner and the resulting photos were nothing short of stunning. Beautiful natural photos which captured every perfect moment of the day. He wasn't imposing on the wedding at all and I was really impressed with the natural style of the photos. He was also prompt with the delivery of the photos following the wedding. If you like natural style photo with an artistic professional flare, I would definitely recommend him. Cheers Jason!"
