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.

Am 19.08.2014 haben wir unsere Kirchliche Hochzeit gefeiert. Einen wirklich guten Video- und Fotografen zu finden stand natürlich ganz oben auf der Liste. Im Internet sind wir zufällig auf Volodimir und Igor gestoßen und waren direkt von ihren Fotos und Videos begeistert. Die Organisation war unkompliziert, zur Hochzeit sind alle pünktlich gekommen, die Atmosphäre war offen und sehr positiv! Alle Gäste hatten Spaß mit den Fotografen und strahlen auf allen Bildern. Die Fotos sind einfach traumhaft geworden und beim Video stehen mir immer Tränen in den Augen. Wir können IVASH Photography nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für so tolle Erinnerungen!

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!"

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard

"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"

Many brides have that special moment when they find “THE DRESS.” Don’t get me wrong, I loved my dress.

But, my butterflies-in-my-stomach, jump-up-and-down, do-a-little-dance moment came when I found “THE PHOTOGRAPHER.”

You know how it goes, you spend hours looking at website after website of photographers and none of them speak to you, inspire you, or even make you smile. Then…I found Adrian.

Adrian and his partner, Ivonne, are masters at their craft. I fell in love with his candid pictures and portraits of the bride and groom. I also love that he took a lot of portraits of individual guests. My absolute favorite part of his pictures is the lighting and softness. The pictures are romantic, warm, and draw you in.

From beginning to end, working with Adrian was wonderful. He responded to emails quickly. My husband and I did not want any posed pictures, so Adrian’s style was right up our alley. They worked their magic all night snapping away and were practically invisible. You didn’t even notice them. They seemed to be at just the right place at just the right time. And captured so many magical moments.

End result? Stunning pictures that truly captured our special day. Each time I look at them, I feel as though I’m there…in the moment. And a lot of my guests have stunning, beautifully lit portraits, too. I just love that.

I would choose Adrian and Ivonne again and again. They were the best decision we made in our wedding planning. Hands down.

Kind regards,
Kathryn & Jack.

" We are from Brussels-Belgium. For our engagement photo shoot, we were looking for a great photographer who truly captures emotions, warm lights, and who would representate the best our  relationship on pictures. We booked Stefano from Belgium with a lot of questions that he respond quickly. That was for us very important because he always respond to all our questions and gave us advice before the photo shoot. We had a good feeling before because he was transparent. 

In italy, he called us before he arrived and was very punctual, we really appreciated his professionalism. Stefano was nice and Humourous and allways smiling so we were confortable to do the session with him. He has great attention on details and that makes his work very creative because he has eyes for beauty and emotions. When I saw his work on his website, I knew he would do Beautiful  pictures but in fact he exceeded all our expectations. Really, We can't imagine another photographer doing our precious photos. 


We want to thank him for his patience, the fact that he stay more time just to do great pictures, and for our spritz at the end of our session. Thank to his assistent to, they are both very nice guys!


Stefano sent to us the pictures in time with printed ones. He sent us a big surprise: a videoclip with our pictures, and my gosh, it was very touching, that song was the perfect one! Stefano, we love you!!!!!

Our family and friends have complimented the stunning photos  and they definitely want him as our weddingphotographer even if he's far from Belgium! they really want him and we to!

 So, if you are looking for a really great photographer and charming person, don't hesitate, Stefano is your guy! Lucky you!

What can we say to the star of our show!? We cannot ever thank you enough for all of your utterly outstanmding work and your laughter and support leading up to and during our wedding day. We could (hands-down) not have found a more talented photographer in all of the lands who truly ‘got’ us, better than we knew! (we are both very camera shy and look what you did!) We are so glad we found you – from the one image we saw of yours, we knew there and then you were the one – but even better, we didn’t know we would also meet an amazing friend from that. You are truly an artist. Thank you for each and every masterpiece! And giving us the mnemories.

All our love,
