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.
This gallery displays the 1st place images in each category for the most recent contest. To view the whole gallery, click on the thumbnails below.
The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization. Each member must be a veteran of at least 50 weddings, submit a portfolio for review, be sponsored by an existing member or provide 4 references, and agree to operate by our Code of Conduct. Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.

We chose Mr. Lunardi as our Wedding Photographer because of his outstanding and incredible
Stefano Lunardi caught all the right moments and expressions at all the right times and the quality
of the pictures is wonderful. He photographed in color and in black/white, and they are all incredibly
edited. He works with shadows and light in a very special way and makes every photo live. He
chose no less then the very best of his work to return to us perfectly edited and extremely thought
through. He cared a great deal about us and was very easy to talk to and work with after the
wedding, as during the wedding day, to decide which photos to choose for the fantastic photo book
he creates. We will highly recommend Stefano Lunardi to any couple who is getting married and of
There is no fear of a rainy day, Stefano Lunardi will just make the rain light up the picture!
course to anyone who just wants beautiful photos to keep for life.

“My husband and I needed an experienced outdoor wedding photographer for our Kenya Safari Wedding. We are so glad to have found Nishan. We love his work because its very natural yet artistic. He captured all the beautiful memories of our safari trip with friends and family as well as the day of the wedding. We also did a separate wedding photo shoot in the wild which was quite challenging since it was in an unfamiliar setting and animals in the wild are very unpredictable. The photos turned out to be wonderful nonetheless. Nishan also put together an awesome digital photo book for us that we proudly shared with everyone. Overall we were very pleased and have recommended Nishan to our friends. In fact, a good friend of ours saw our wedding photos and then asked Nishan to be a second photographer for their Bali wedding even though they’ve already hired one locally. They told me later that they were a lot happier with Nishan’s work.
Keep up the great work Nishan!”

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. Thank you Volodomyr, I wish you to reach your goal, we know than you can do it.

Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures. You made our celebration so much more fun and festive!
One of our friends who passed out during the reception actually said those photos refreshed her memory because they are so story telling. Those pictures are not just artistic, but they talk. It’s truly the captures of the best moments. We have no regret of this event, because you made this gathering so much more meaningful and beautiful. Everyone is stunned with your pictures!
I would like to share this quote from my friend who was not able to attend the wedding but saw the slideshow
“Now, I have to tell you how much I thoroughly enjoyed viewing your wedding video!! I even felt at one point that I would cry because YOU and everyone and everything was so superbly beautiful!!! the overall video was so wonderfully crafted; it was a delight to watch. ”
My wedding was not magical. But you, Andreas, made it magical!
Thank you! We miss you! big kiss from everyone!
"Thank you soooo much for the photos!!! I love them all :-)!!! Again, thank you very much for all these beautiful pictures and spending your time for this." Elena, Florence, Kentucky.
Jacek Dolata was the photographer we choose on our NY wedding because of his alternative , modern and photo realistic style. He captured our special day perfectly. Jacek is very well organized and has knowledge of how to create special effects using lighting, camera angles and different lenses and techniques. It is really inspiring the way he works to take high quality photos. We could tell that he enjoyed his job and he had great ideas for shots. Jacek captured tons of footage and covered everyone on our day. We are so glad we choose him. Our pictures came out great. We couldn’t be more happy. I would highly recommend Jacek Dolata to any bride and groom for. He is very passionate about what he does.
