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.

Jeannine Pohl, 676 Smith Ave S St. Paul, MN 55107

"Jeannine has been simply amazing! We had engagement pictures with her and then decided to have her shoot our wedding as well and we could not be happier! She is very professional, super easy to work with, and a downright talented photographer. Thanks to her we have some of our favorite moments captured in striking detail and can enjoy them for years to come. Just look through her galleries and I'm sure you'll love her work as much as we do."

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

São tantos detalhes, tanta coisa para resolver antes do casamento e no grande dia nada pode dar errado, daí a importância na escolha do profissional que acompanhará e registrará esse grande momento de nossas vidas. Falar do Fernando é fácil. Grande profissional, dedicado, comprometido e de um olhar único sobre o que tem em volta, as cenas e os detalhes. Ficamos muitos felizes com o resultado do seu trabalho e o quanto abrilhantou desde o ensaio, making of da noiva, cerimônia e a festa do nosso casamento.

Jeannine Pohl, 676 Smith Ave S St. Paul, MN 55107

How can we express what an important and amazing part of our wedding day that Jeannine played. The photos are the one thing you cannot skimp on. These are your memories, and Jeannine did just a beautiful job with ours.

"Jeannine traveled from the Twin Cities up to Duluth to shoot for a day at the Glensheen Mansion for us. Everything she did was perfect, from the shot selection, to her efficiency, to her fun, easy nature. She was an absolute joy to work with.

Jeannine even had a short slideshow of the early photos she had taken playing on a monitor at the bar after dinner, which was an amazing addition.

Within a few days of the wedding, we had a "sneak peak" available on her website, and within a week or two of that we had our digital prints.

Fast, friendly, and amazing. We could not recommend her more strongly.

If you are going to be getting married in Minnesota, there's no one better."

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"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"

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was amazing! He is very professional while still being friendly and likable, so we felt very comfortable with him. Before the wedding day we went over all the shots that were most important to me and he did a great job capturing those for us, as well as many I never thought about. James delivered our pictures to us in about a week and a half and we were amazed at the beauty, quality and amount of pictures he was able to get. I will continue to use James for family photo shoots in the future and would highly reccomend him to anyone looking for a photographer for any kind of event.

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Serine and Tarek's had their wedding photo-shoot session in a magical place at the lowest point on earth, the Deadsea. It was one of the hottest days of the year, she had to bare a wedding gown and move and dance in it and had to survive in a tuxedo and a bow tie. they both were agitated, I tried to sooth them down and take away the agitation and the result was this, a reflection of the beautiful couple happily and madly in love and showing everyone including them how perfect they are for each other.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

That’s true!

Going back to Q1 2012, I was making one of my (common) deep researches through the internet looking for a photographer for our wedding. After several days, I found Adrian’s portfolio online. From that moment my only task was to convince my girlfriend that his team should be the one. His work spoke for itself.

I was doing all of this from Ireland, so it wasn’t that easy. Truth be told, I was 95% sure that he would do it. The 5% was finally and quickly clarified after talking with him a couple of times by phone. He created a good impression and agreed to move to attend the wedding.

Before the wedding, after just two or three more calls to talk about planning, we met him and his team right on the wedding day. They were exactly what we were expecting: astonishing professionals, doing their job without making guests realize they were there.

After the wedding, all the different material was delivered before schedule, and since then we haven’t stopped sharing his contact details, because whoever sees the photos asks for him!

I’ll rate him with 5 stars.

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

We would like to thank great, sympathetic and above all professional photographic couple John and Mary. Shooting was due to their approach is very relaxed and also very entertaining. We are happy that they have become an integral part of our so momentous day. They could be captured in the highest quality, so that the photos will come back in time, as if it was still June 11, 2011. For all of them from us includes a large THANKS.”


Kele Huertas & Fer Velasco , Sevilla, Espa√Īa

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!
