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.

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek is a cut above the rest!! He is extremely talented & very passionate about his work. For our outdoor wedding reception, he captured the most beautiful photos that had a magical quality of light. He took all of the family standard shots in such an efficient way that my husband & I even got a chance to enjoy our cocktail hour! He was not in our face or intrusive during the wedding at all, yet he still got all of the shots. He was so well organized & he always returned my calls or emails very quickly. Jacek loves to photograph & the proof of that is obvious in the stunning photos he takes. He is an artist & was a joy to work with. My husband, my family, and I are so glad that he was our photographer. I could not be happier - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACEK!

These pictures are priceless and something what we will enjoy for a lifetime.When I started to plan our wedding and looking for the photographer, I saw your work and there were no question about it that I wanted you to be our photographer. From that moment when we met I knew that you would make our day special and so it was.You managed to capture each detail for us to remember and captured all the emotion we were experiencing that day. Pictures are amazing and absolutely beautiful.You are most gifted, talented, creative, professional, and kindest photographer. You have great personality and sense of humor and it was so easy and fun to work with you. You are passionate about your work and we can feel that and see it in pictures.Other day when we made trash the dress session on the beach and cenote was fantastic! Pictures are creative and unique. Session was so much fun and experience was fabulous in every way. I can’t wait to make it again next year in our anniversary!Thank you so much to sharing your gift with us.

Elegir a los fotógrafos de nuestra boda fue una de las decisiones más claras que podíamos tener, ¡sin duda alguna tenían que ser ellos! Fernando y María Ángeles, dos vecinos de nuestra localidad cuyo trabajo como profesionales no tiene que envidiar a ningún otro fotógrafo, ni a nivel nacional, me atrevería a decir.

Hicimos nuestra preboda en Roma, con propuesta de Fernando. Nos pareció una locura pero, ¿por qué no?, ¡a fin de cuentas esos momentos de locura son los que nos dan vida! Después de vivir la experiencia y de ver el resultado, pensé que no podríamos asombrarnos aún más, ¡es realmente alucinante!

Pero es que con su buen hacer profesional, la pasión y constancia que le ponen a todo, el afán de superación, y la gran calidad humana que tienen, se superan con creces con cada trabajo que realizan. Son capaces de captar lo menos esperado, lo más emotivo, ¡el color, la luz, los momentos!

Por supuesto, enormemente agradecidos, tanto con su trabajo, como con su trato, porque realmente son dos adorables y encantadoras personas. ¡Ni que deciros tiene que las fotos de la boda son espectaculares!
