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.

Hi Marcel and Meher, 

We LOVE the pictures!  thank you both so much for doing an amazing job!  I can't stop looking at them.  You truly captured the day and we couldn't have hoped for any more :)

Thanks,

Hi!  Thank you so much for the pictures!!  They are great!!!!  It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day.  Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.  
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Wilma & Greg

 

Hi Marcel & Meher,

The pictures are truly spectacular!!!  Thank you both so, so much.  You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away.  I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day.  Can’t tell you how happy it made me.  We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.

Thank you again!!!

Best,

Rachel & Nikki

Rinke heeft voor ons een uitstekende, professionele fotoshoot verzorgd. In zijn benadering is hij persoonlijk en weet hij gemak en ongedwongenheid te creëren. Het resultaat is authentiek en verbluffend mooi. Rinke, bedankt voor je vakwerk! - Karsten & Jardena

Susanna Antichi, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is AMAZING. We loved her SO much! She wanted our photos to be extra special, so she took us away from Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The scenery at that island is much more majestic than what could have been captured in the hotel zone, which we very much appreciated. Susanna was always very responsive. That is actually one of the many reasons I chose her for our special day. She has a unique eye. If you want your images to be different than anything you've ever seen before, then pick Susanna. I guarantee you, your friends and family will be in awe of your photos. I can't say enough positive things about Susanna. We are overjoyed and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!! Thanks again Susanna!

Petrica Tanase, Bucharest, Romania

Cristina and Petrica are before anything else those enthusiast and positive friends that you really want at your wedding and those whom your guests will ask you if you know from childhood.
They are the friends that have been to the best weddings and can tell you which DJ will keep the dance floor on fire and that you should make the final adjustment to your dress 2 days before the wedding because you will lose weight.
They are those nice friends that you can chat over a lemonade about all the crazy things they've done in life. They are the friends that do what they say will do and for sure they are the living proof of the love that you dream about and hope to live.
About the photos, there is not much to say other than the photos tell you. We are sure you have already seen all the stories on their site and if you didn't stop reading this.

P.S. No, we are not friends from childhood. We've met less than a year ago when it only took five minutes to realize that they are the friends that we want to pay to have at our wedding.

Daniel West, Gauteng, South Africa

Dear Daniel West

We just couldn't be happier with the beautiful service you provided for us!

Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words! Daniel surely captured the most amazing photos of our special day!

Thank you so much for your time, efforts and spectacular work! We'd also especially like to thank you for your support along the way, which might I add has been quite a lengthy time considering our initial enquiry was in 2013.

We just couldn't be happier with the beautiful service you provided for us, Daniel. We will certainly recommend Daniel West to anyone we know. We wish you every success for the future. Your outstanding work clearly speaks for itself.

From the heart, Mr & Mrs Bottger

Faisal Mohamed, maldives

In late November 2017, we got married in the Maldives on Mirihi Island. We hired Phaisal to be our wedding photographer and videographer. He did an amazing job with our photos and videos. We think some the photos are simply brilliant and speak for themselves. On the day he was attentive and flexible with our scheduling. He worked really well with the other staff on the island to get us the best shots. It was also quite warm on the island. He has a keen eye for details and we look really natural in the photos. The turnaround for the photos and the video was quick. He truly captured our special moment. We cannot thank him enough and recommend that you hire him to capture your special moments in the Maldives.
