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
Lukas Guillaume, Miami, Florida

We had the privilege to have Lukas take our photos on our wedding day on the 25th July 2015 in the Jardin des Martels and then the Moulin de Nartaud in France. Despite the quirky wedding format with opted for, and thus the very early start and consequently long day ahead, Lukas was very understanding and adaptable to our needs. He is a very nice guy who got along with every one involved on the day and genuinely enjoys what he's doing and the quality of is work is beyond reproach. The photos all look very natural and never forced or staged, he just hides in plain sight and takes the perfect shot at the perfect moment without being in the way. We were especially impressed by the fact that he managed to prepare a diaporama/slideshow with key photos and a tastefully chosen music on the very same evening for all the guests to enjoy at the end of the meal, and without fail it impressed all the guests with a lot of laughter, "ooh's" and "aah's" and also a few tears. We also can't say enough good about his commitment and availability afterwards; he is always very prompt to answer any questions you may have and will go the extra mile to keep you happy. I can say with confidence that anyone choosing his services will be completely satisfied.

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!"

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

There are not enough words for me to describe the value of Mario's service to us. Firstly, let me start by saying that I was a travel agent in Toronto, Canada, when I planned MY destination wedding in the Bahamas, in July 2011. I came across Mario's work on-line and saw that he had a great eye for group shots and for capturing intimate moments and emotions....which were both key for me because if all else failed on the wedding day, (and it almost did), what I wanted more than anything were amazing pictures to capture the beauty of the day and the Bahamas...and Mario nailed it!!

He was on time, he was professional, his pricing was fair (worth every dime) and he was so pleasant to work with. One thing I loved was that he almost disappeared into the crowd, so he didn't get in the way of others wanting to take pictures, but didn't miss a beat either. He's truly gifted and anointed and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Sadly, in October, just 2 months after the wedding, my father was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away shortly after in February, and so those last pictures of my dad mean so much more to us. We now have these amazing pictures that have become precious memories that we truly treasure and are grateful to Mario for. He captured, what my father said was, the happiest day of his life and because they were some of the BEST pictures my dad ever took, we used many of them for his funeral.

So dearest Mario, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for putting your heart and soul into your work and may God continue to bless you, always!! :)

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek Dolata was the photographer we choose on our NY wedding because of his alternative , modern and photo realistic style. He captured our special day perfectly. Jacek is very well organized and has knowledge of how to create special effects using lighting, camera angles and different lenses and techniques. It is really inspiring the way he works to take high quality photos. We could tell that he enjoyed his job and he had great ideas for shots. Jacek captured tons of footage and covered everyone on our day. We are so glad we choose him. Our pictures came out great. We couldn’t be more happy. I would highly recommend Jacek Dolata to any bride and groom for. He is very passionate about what he does.

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"Look no further... Jesse and Moira were the most professional, talented, creative, honest, confident, compassionate, laid back and overall incredible team we could have ever imagined. We met them after finding our favorite photos - theirs - of our venue (Copper Mountain, CO) and they completely out did our expectations. The preview shots we've received so far are stunning, unique, creative, and reflective of the most important moments of our day. They captured the heart of what felt like fleeting moments and highlighted so much of the beauty throughout the day. They are talented and professional beyond measure - but these are also world class humans. From first meeting to goodbye on the night of and every email and phone call in-between they were genuine, honest, helpful, and compassionate. My wife found Moira particularly comforting to her as a bride who was not used to being photographed, providing patient and experienced advice. Jesse's passion for what he does is evident and his creativity and thoughtfulness let you know that your photos will be pieces of art. We built our day-of team around their suggestions and were blown away."
