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.

My wife and I were lucky to find Monika. Like all couples we were trying to avoid those cliche wedding photos everyone has seen too many times. In Monika we found a stunning talent. Her artistic eye and creative talent made for amazing pictures and memories. And best of all she was wonderful to work with. Thanks again Monika!!

Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

"Flipping through our old wedding photos made us reminisce about Debra Zeller and her magical photographic touch. Debra took care of us for both our engagement session and also our wedding. She handled both events with aplomb. She is friendly, easy going, and perceptive.

We couldn't be more pleased with how our photos turned out. They definitely captured the moment. We trusted Debra to pick backgrounds and scenes without suggesting much. It was the right decision because we were in good hands. So many have complimented the photos and backdrops, and especially how unique they were.

Definitely recommended with our highest opinion.

An artist ! Volodomyr has talent to take a beautiful photos but his best advantage is to understand what we like. He ask us lot of questions, discussed with us and feel us. As big professional, he knows exactly what he wants, where and how. Punctual and invisible, his photos are stylish, design, in details with taste. He made us in certain spirit, without any stress, even in good mood! More than a good photographer, he is also a good person.

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
  They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening

Miljan Vasovic, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Milan was the absolute best! He was super easy to work with and the results were amazing! We did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos with him. Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Super professional, answered all our questions really quick since we’re in NY and he’s in DR. Although the distance was far the communication was amazing. Our guests also loved him. He was so fun! Thanks again Milan! Definitely recommend!

Sean Lara, Fort Collins, Colorado, United States

"Where do I start when there's so much AWESOME to talk about... I mean, you can look through Sean's photos and see that you've got a 100% chance of getting an amazing portfolio of pictures from him. Sean's talent knows no bounds. We had super high expectations for our engagement photos because of this and he STILL massively exceeded them. But as we learned on our adventure photo shoot trip with Sean, there's so much more to being a great wedding/engagement photographer than just being able to compose a pretty picture. He is incredibly friendly, extremely well-organized, and knows how to interact with people to get the best out of them while reducing stress levels to zero. He's brilliant and you should absolutely give him a call to talk about your event!" - David & Nicole
