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

Ali Nishan, Maldives

My husband and I love every single capture of our wedding. The pictures are absolutely wonderful. Nishan did prove that he is the best there is in Maldives.

He is not only a superb photographer but also a great person to work with. Our outdoor photo shoot was threatened by bad weather with dark clouds and rain. Well, things not going as planned are a nightmare for any bride and groom. However, he was confident and gave us continuous hope that it would work out well. And, it did.

When we got to see the photos we were awed. We love them so much, they are our treasures. Everyone who saw them admired them. We are just so happy in selecting Nishan as our wedding photographer and we do recommend him for any couple looking for one. We thank you Nishan, for giving us our beautiful treasures.

人和人之间的缘分就是那么奇妙,在好姐妹的婚礼上偶遇阿军,一天的相处后被他敬业的精神深深感动,又被他风趣幽默的性格所感染,当时就说过,自己的婚礼也要请他当摄影师的~所幸军哥刚好有档期,事实证明我的选择是非常正确的!军哥无论是婚礼前,婚礼当天还是婚礼后都非常用心,堪称业界良心!感谢军哥让我的婚礼不留遗憾。一年过去了,翻开军哥给我们拍摄的照片,还是满满的感动,满满的甜蜜。衷心祝福军哥,也祝愿天下有情人终成眷属^_^

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!

Jacek they are amazing!!!!!! I am in tears!!!!

Adrian Bonet, Cancun, Mexico

All it took was one look at Adrian’s website and my fiancé and I were hooked! We were a little lost when it came to booking a photographer (especially out of the country) but our photos turned out better than we could have imagined!

I absolutely loved the uniqueness of the photos and how all the candid shots captured every emotion of the day. Adrian and his partner were very professional and great to work with. We had a long break between our ceremony and dinner and I was a little worried how the day would play out since we didn’t have a set timeline but Adrian and his partner just kept shooting and we ended up with beautiful pictures! He even got some great shots of us jumping in the pool! (Which I know was a challenge).

Overall, I couldn’t have picked a better photographer and we will cherish our photos forever! We are loving our pictures and have tons of them printed and framed all over the house!

Thank you for making our day so special,
Jessica & Joseph.

Ótimo profissional e acima de tudo uma pessoa maravilhosa de se trabalhar.

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James photographed our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and day-after brunch and we are so thrilled with his work. James was flexible and easy to work with before the wedding, and he was an absolute joy to be with the wedding day (and weekend). He's relaxed, funny, professional, and he kept us on schedule without ever making us feel rushed or stressed. He also showed up early and stayed late. And, of course, our photos are gorgeous.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

I am a photograph enthusiast! I love pictures and find that they are such meaningful and artistic forms of capturing memories. With that being said, choosing a perfect wedding photographer was of my highest priority. After many long hours of searching for the right photographer, my husband and I chose Mario Nixon. We really loved his work seen through his web page. After establishing lines of communication, we knew that Mario was the right choice for us. As many vendors in the Bahamas seemed to operate on "Island Time," Mario was an appreciated exception. He always was very prompt in his responses and communicated effectively and efficiently. On our big day, he arrived on time and was ready to go. He demonstrated a laid-back, fun, personable, and friendly demeanor and was very flexible working with us, our wedding party, and guests. Once we received our photos, we were overly excited. Mario captured timeless, gorgeous, unique moments that we truly enjoy over and over again! We couldn't be happier with the beautiful gift of these amazing images! So many of our friends asked if Mario worked in the US, as they wanted him as their wedding photographer as well. A huge thanks goes out to Mario- he is amazing at what he does, and we would recommend him to anyone seeking a fantastic photographer!
