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
Olexiy Syrotkin, Rome, Italy

Wedding – is the only one unique and incredible day that unfortunately could have been partially forgotten because of the state of the total delight and ecstasy…if not Oleksiy Syrotkin. Thanks to him all the happiness that we felt, all the moments of joy, parental tears and strong hugs of friends will stay with us forever. He doesn’t make photos; he engraves the most important and the most precious moments for heart. Total absence of posing, nothing is fake, and everything is sincere and real. Of course, we were expecting and hoping to get beautiful pictures, but we have obtained unbelievable masterpieces, that completely impressed us and made cry out of happiness again not only us, but also everyone who have seen them. It’s been already more than 3 months since the wedding day, and we still can’t stop being happy from what we see. We have never regretted that exactly Oleksiy was with us on this day. Because he can make your personal fairytale become eternal. Huge and sincere THANK YOU from all of us!!!

Dimitri Voronov, Barcelona (Spain)

Nos casamos el pasado 8 de Agosto. Dimitri y Ana nos hicieron el trabajo fotográfico y de vídeo. Los resultados son realmente súper profesionales y pudieron captar momentos únicos tanto en fotografía como en vídeo. Son un equipo que trabaja y esta en la boda sin realmente darte cuenta. Seriedad, profesionalidad y calidad son su clave para su trabajo. Estamos muy contentos por las memorias que tendremos de nuestro día. Si buscáis alguien que pueda recordar al 100% vuestra boda, os recomiendo Dimitri y Ana.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Planning a destination wedding in Mexico, while living on the eastern end of Long Island, was definitely an interesting experience to say the least. While I thought I had everything under control, my husband reminded me that we needed to find a wedding photographer.

We began the process by researching photographers within Playa del Carmen and/or the Riviera Maya area. We came across the name Adrian Bonet and his beautiful website of wedding photos. It was exactly what we both were looking for – candid shots with some formal ones mixed in. We wanted to capture the experience, gestures and overall excitement of not only us but also most importantly our guests.

The day of our wedding, Adrian and his assistant Ivonne, were exactly what we hoped for. They artistically captured moments that at times we had no idea about and neither did our guests, and we loved it! Adrian and Ivonne were calm, cool and collected and their candidly artistic photographs displayed just that.

My husband and I are so gracious and appreciative of how every single shot came to life and ecstatic to hear our loved ones talk about how much they cannot stop looking at our wedding photos. What great memories Adrian and Ivonne captured, and we are forever grateful.

Thank you again for all your hard work.

Best regards,
Laura & Brook.

Bima Kuntoaji Adhitya, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Finally we had a family photoshot with Bima Adhitya. Bima was our wedding photographer 4 years ago. Our family photoshot was taken at Uluwatu, Bali. It took around 1 hour to go to our destination and my son, Ando, became cranky but Bima and his beautiful wife Nina helped us to relax and successfully captured our best and natural moments. Through his magic touch Bima managed to take lots of amazing shots. It was an unforgettable photoshot and wouldn’t happend without Bima’s help. We send our greatest gratitude for Bima and his wife. Thank you Bima for the photoshot.

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

Fernando é um profissional altamente qualificado. Comprometido com seus clientes. Criativo e habilidoso, sua fotografia é uma verdadeira arte! Amamos todas as fotos e foi muito difícil finalizar o álbum por conta da quantidade de fotos fantásticas que ele registrou. Atendeu e até antecipou todos os prazos estabelecidos em contrato. Super recomendo!

Ali Nishan, Local Male, Maldives

Steve & Tiffany
August 2012, Kenya

“My husband and I needed an experienced outdoor wedding photographer for our Kenya Safari Wedding. We are so glad to have found Nishan. We love his work because its very natural yet artistic. He captured all the beautiful memories of our safari trip with friends and family as well as the day of the wedding. We also did a separate wedding photo shoot in the wild which was quite challenging since it was in an unfamiliar setting and animals in the wild are very unpredictable. The photos turned out to be wonderful nonetheless. Nishan also put together an awesome digital photo book for us that we proudly shared with everyone. Overall we were very pleased and have recommended Nishan to our friends. In fact, a good friend of ours saw our wedding photos and then asked Nishan to be a second photographer for their Bali wedding even though they’ve already hired one locally. They told me later that they were a lot happier with Nishan’s work.

Keep up the great work Nishan!”
