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.

Our wedding has been in June 2015 and the photos created during the whole day are marvelous. The more often we see them, the more we love them. They are genuine, natural and still artistic and special and show that Stefano is a real high-level professional.

The photographs capture unvarnished all the emotional moments of this day and if we look at them it seems we are once more in the middle of our wedding day.

Unfortunately, we had only a very vague memory of all the impressions of the day, but because of the continuous photo story everything was kept and came back to our mind again.

Another incredible fact is that during the whole day we never really noticed a photographer, but nevertheless, they have been everywhere and have seen everything worth taking a photo.

And despite the short time for our couple-pictures (approx. 20 mins) some real wonderful motifs were created – other photographers need hours for such perfection. If you choose Stefano, this is included in your package!

"Ja, da bleibt noch unser toller Fotograf... dem wir ein ganz großes Lob ausprechen müssen, die Bilder sind so super getroffen und eine wo wunderschöne Erinnerung, die für immer bleibt.
Es sind einfach die Momente zu spühren...
Ich schaue mir die Bilder momentan noch (2 Wochen nach der Hochzeit) fast jeden Tag an und bin total begeistert, wie man es schafft, die Bilder so zum Ausdruck zu bringen!

Vielen Dank dafür!"

L’Afrique Photography – The “Dream Team”,

 

While we were planning our wedding, we followed the usual wedding planning process of countless meetings and google searches trying to find the perfect photographer. When we came across Daniel and L’Afrique Photography, we knew that we had found exactly what we were looking for…

 

During our first meeting with Daniel, we decided there an then that we no longer needed to continue our search! Daniel was extremely professional and knowledgeable and gave us the feeling that we had nothing to worry about if we left our wedding photography in his very capable hands. Daniel was very open to listening to our own ideas and he was able to put forward additional ideas that worked hand in hand with what we required.

 

Seeing a portfolio is great…. But one always worries about what the final product of your own wedding will look like…. Well, we were able to see our own portfolio before our wedding day… the “engagement shoot”. The engagement shoot gave us the opportunity to work with Daniel before the big day and it helped ease our nerves in front of the camera. Daniel gave us some very helpful tips around how we should pose and stay relaxed and just enjoy each other’s company. When we got to see our engagement shoot pictures, we were blown away!!! They were beautiful and better than we ever expected! This definitely helped to ease the nerves around what to expect on our big day.

 

On the big day, L’Afriques professionalism was clear to see. Daniel an Marnitz were on time and ready for action. Even with the stress on the big day, we were made to feel super comfortable and relaxed! We were not rushed and we weren’t forced into smiling and posing the whole day. The photos were taken in a relaxed, natural environment and the outcome of the photos speak for themselves!

 

Every important aspect was captured beautifully and we couldn’t be happier!! The final packaging of our albums was also incredible!!! L’Afrique…. We can’t thank you enough for making sure our memories of our wedding day were captured in the most beautiful way possible!!! We can’t wait to work with you again in the near future… perhaps for our first family shoot!

Love each and every one of my photos! There is no picture that I did not love! The company showed professionalism from the beginning. Luis Miguel answered all the questions and concerns even suggested times and shots that I did not consider. The photographers who covered the event, Jesica and Nacho, were not only professionals. But they were very cute and attentive to us. I loved the experience and the customer touch that this company offers. Hire them again without a second thought.

Danilo Muratore, Calabria, italy

Every time I look at the pictures of our wedding I always feel the same emotion of that day. The photos are more beautiful than the other, are not the usual picture posing that I hate. So we've chose Danilo. Professionalism, originality, we could not find better. He manages to capture every moment, every peculiarity. Each picture taken by him says, with a lot of naturalness and spontaneity, every detail and every emotion of that day, I do not thank you enough for the wonderful work done on the day of our wedding. Apart from the professionalism, we met us for any request. I highly recommend it! It is the top!

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!

Wanneer je Rinke kiest als trouwfotograaf ben je verzekerd van het vastleggen van de spontane en emotievolle momenten op jullie dag. Nauwelijks merkbaar aanwezig, maar heeft de lach en de traan goed vast weten te leggen. Daarnaast zie je zijn liefde voor foto’s en oog voor detail terug in het album. - Niels & Luciënne
