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.

Faisal Mohamed, Malé, Maldives

In late November 2017, we got married in the Maldives on Mirihi Island. We hired Phaisal to be our wedding photographer and videographer. He did an amazing job with our photos and videos. We think some the photos are simply brilliant and speak for themselves. On the day he was attentive and flexible with our scheduling. He worked really well with the other staff on the island to get us the best shots. It was also quite warm on the island. He has a keen eye for details and we look really natural in the photos. The turnaround for the photos and the video was quick. He truly captured our special moment. We cannot thank him enough and recommend that you hire him to capture your special moments in the Maldives.

Iʼm really not sure we could have had more fun with a wedding photographer than we did with you!

Your personality fit perfectly with our kind of style,you were a breeze to work with and so much fun to be around. You captured all the moments, random, important, candid, and posed with an edge and artistic beauty.

Thank you for so vividly bringing our memories to life, itʼs a gift we will always appreciate!

Paulina Cadoret, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

We knew from the start that we wanted to have a photographer who could capture our wedding with an artistic fine art eye. Being that I come from the fine art business world and Jules is a keen art lover, we were looking for a truly special photographer. We knew we had found this when I discovered Ossa Photo and saw exactly the type of quality, emotion and artistry we were looking for in Ossa’s photos.

Both of us were so comfortable with Ossa and his wife, and together they managed to capture stunning shots of the whole day that lived up to our expectations and more.

Sarah: Heiii, Hammer!!! Hatten gestern einen tollen Abend beim Angucken der Bilder. Robert findet sie auch super geil, viele Grüße soll ich dir sagen. Wir sind echt begeistert!! Daaaanke!! 

Robert: Hey wollte auch nochmal danke sagen! Wahnsinns Fotos! die Liebe im Detail und die Kreativität sind beeindruckend. In fast jedem Bild sehe ich was besonderes. Finds zB auch geil das oft noch eine zweite oder mehrere Personen im Hintergrund oder in Fensterscheiben etc zu entdecken sind. Wirklich top! Vielen Dank.

Ludvík Daněk, Bern, Switzerland

Chtěli bychom vyjádřit velké poděkování Ludvíkovi za nádherné svatební fotografie, které nám budou denně připomínat den, kdy jsme spojili své životy v jeden. Hned při předsvatebním focení jsme se ujistili v tom, že jsme si vybrali pro zachycení svého dne fotografa s velkým F. Ludvík je fotograf, který srší originálními nápady, a i když jsme si mysleli, že je fotografování téměř vždy postaveno na uměle vytvořených pózách, na jeho fotografiích vše vypadá naprosto přirozeně a zachyceno jakoby náhodou. A to je asi největší předností každého fotografa, který vyniká ve své profesi. Na Ludvíka jsme narazili úplnou náhodou a oba jsme neuvěřitelně rádi, že tomu tak bylo. Vřelé díky.
