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.

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,

Zibi is the wedding photographer you can dream of ! He joined us on our special day with his relaxed and lovely presence, really appreciated how he captured all those special moments and finally made us the most precious gift: so many wonderful pictures, one more touching than the other..
So happy, fate led us to Zibi – thanks a lot ! Best wishes from Switzerland
“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests. I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special day.”
Jacek was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! He was my sister's photographer at her wedding and he was fantastic so when my husband and I got engaged we asked her for his information. Jacek responded within hours of us emailing every single time. He was so flexible about everything. He and his assistant, Conrad, made us feel so comfortable while doing pictures and got genuine laughs out of us with their hysterical comments. He even gave me his jacket because it was cold and snowing on our wedding day! Additionally the pictures are absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to order photos and make a photo book. From black and white to creative to romantic pictures, he does it all. Also, just one week after our wedding Jacek had put up albums on his website so we could see it all again. We could not have imagined a better photographer and are so thrilled we chose him. We are already trying to figure out the next time we can utilize his services again! If you live in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, or New York area there is no better, more wonderful, more responsive photographer you could ask for. He is very reasonably priced and worth every penny.
“Felices y agradecidos con la vida por haberlos puesto en nuestro camino para captar “Nuestros Momentos” en el día más feliz, de verdad que se quedan cortas las palabras para expresarles la gratitud por ese trabajo tan maravilloso que realizaron, capturaron cada detalle, cada mirada, cada momento, toda nuestra complicidad…
Gracias infinitas a ti, a Sebas, a todo el equipo!!!
Sigan llenando de recuerdos hermosos por siempre a todos los afortunados que den con ustedes!”

" 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!

"I received the pictures yesterday and I'm obsessed with them! I can't stop starring at them - they are so great! You did an amazing job and were really great to work with too! The wedding went by so fast so now I get to relive it all through the pictures which has been so much fun Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"
We are thrilled by the beautiful 'real' pictures made ââon our wedding day. Thanks Rinke! - Guando & Annerieke
There are not enough words for me to describe the value of Mario's service to us. Firstly, let me start by saying that I was a travel agent in Toronto, Canada, when I planned MY destination wedding in the Bahamas, in July 2011. I came across Mario's work on-line and saw that he had a great eye for group shots and for capturing intimate moments and emotions....which were both key for me because if all else failed on the wedding day, (and it almost did), what I wanted more than anything were amazing pictures to capture the beauty of the day and the Bahamas...and Mario nailed it!!
He was on time, he was professional, his pricing was fair (worth every dime) and he was so pleasant to work with. One thing I loved was that he almost disappeared into the crowd, so he didn't get in the way of others wanting to take pictures, but didn't miss a beat either. He's truly gifted and anointed and I would recommend him to anyone!!
Sadly, in October, just 2 months after the wedding, my father was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away shortly after in February, and so those last pictures of my dad mean so much more to us. We now have these amazing pictures that have become precious memories that we truly treasure and are grateful to Mario for. He captured, what my father said was, the happiest day of his life and because they were some of the BEST pictures my dad ever took, we used many of them for his funeral.
So dearest Mario, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for putting your heart and soul into your work and may God continue to bless you, always!! :)

Dear Marcel and Meher,
Thank you both very much for these amazing photos.
We opened a bottle of wine and re-lived the wedding day through your photos, and we loved every single one of them (and there were some really funny, brilliant ones that made us laugh!)
Thank you again for being with us on the day!!

Hey Marcel and Meher!!
OMG---I loooove them all !! I got to share them with my parents and they were gushing with happiness. They were so impressed with yours and Meher's work.

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 :)
Chrissy & Vince
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!!!
