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.

We zijn blij dat we voor Rinke hebben gekozen als fotograaf voor ons huwelijk. Hij is een echte professional met oog voor sfeer en detail. Hij is duidelijk als het moet, bijvoorbeeld tijdens de shoot, en onzichtbaar tijdens de ceremonie. - Paul & Christy
Highly recommended for anyone wanting beautiful, real and candid pictures. - Jesse & Annemieke
We have booked Adamo to be our wedding photographer in June based on all the excellent reviews for him. I just wondered if anyone would be willing to show some of their wedding photos - I'd really like to see some examples of his work as many people say his website does not do him justice.
Ontzettend bedankt voor de foto's! Het ziet er allemaal heel mooi uit, we zijn er erg blij mee, dank je wel! - Thom en Anne
We are couple from Turkey and we were lucky to find Nishan for our wedding photographs. He succeeded to capture natural and wonderful photographs of our best moments. Our families and friends admire all of our photographs. Nishan was so professional and it was easy to work with him, he made us comfortable and also we had lots of fun in photo shoots. We would like to thank him again for his fantastic work. If you want to have the best photos that everybody gets admire then you should do yourself a favor and find Nishan.

I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.
We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.
We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.
Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how he captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.
Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.
Thanks so much Daniel!!!

“The photos are spectacular. We love all of them!! They’re marvellous!! To make someone cry when they see a photo only happen when the image truly reflects the emotion of the moment. We also laughed lots seeing some of them. We loved them. Wow!! You’re a great photographer!! A big hug and thanks for everything.” Laura, Logroño, La Rioja.
We used Adamo as the photographer for our wedding in Tuscany in late October 2012. We couldn't have been happier with Adamo's presence at our wedding, he made us feel comfortable and he had a great sense of humour. We had pictures taken in the Siena Town Hall where we were married and then Adamo chose some amazing spots in the countryside on the way back to our Villa to take photos. We now have some beautiful photos taken in a spectacular and truly Tuscan setting. The photos back at the Villa Stomennano that we had hired for the wedding celebrations are gorgeous. Adamo's photos of my Husband and I are fantastic and we have some gorgeous family and group photos which really capture the excitement and happiness of the day.
Thanks Adamo we are so happy that you were the photographer for our wedding day.

Myself and my wife Jeanika Jacobs got married on the 27th of February this year and we were privileged enough to have Daniel West as our wedding photographer.
Daniel West exceeded all our expectations and captured our special day as a true fairytale depicted through his photographs.
Every picture captured our love for each other, for our baby girl and the love we have for our family and friends. Daniel West has so much passion for what he does, in combination with his unrivaled talent, professionalism and attention to detail, this makes Daniel West one of the best photographers in South Africa in my opinion. From making you feel comfortable in front of the camera to sharing in the excitement of your big day and just being an awesome person in general, Daniel West will not disappoint.
Regards Stuart & Jeanika
