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.

"I cannot recommend Jason enough. If you want to look at your photos and instantly be transported back to the day, feeling those same emotions you felt choose Jason. Thank you so much for capturing our precious memories Jason. Andrew and Hannah x"
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,

De details, belichting, spontaniteit en creativiteit hebben gezorgd voor prachtige fotografie! Onopvallend op de dag, maar geeft de juiste tips op het moment dat dit nodig is. Het album is een helder en mooi resultaat die de sfeer van de dag goed laat zien. - Thomas & Sanne
Mario was such a pleasure to work with during our wedding, we absolutely love how our photos came out. Everyone who has seen them has been in awe at how beautiful they are. I have heard over and over that they are the best wedding photos anyone has seen yet. People can see in our photos how much fun my husband and I were having and can see how in love we are. Mario brought that all out in his photos. Very impressed with everything. Anytime I emailed Mario he got right back to me. We received our discs only a few weeks after the wedding and I was able to look at the proofs through his site within two weeks which was great!
I would highly recommend Mario to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. I was very picky about who we hired and did a lot of research prior to finding him and I am so happy we ended up hired him.
Hands down THE BEST photography team . AMAZING pictures, GREAT compositions, a TOP NOTCH equipment and a VERY PROFESSIONAL approach. Thank you very much for capturing all the love, laughter and emotions of our wedding day and we look forward to working with you on our next big life event!”

Right after i had my first visit to SiuMing, I already knew you are the only person who could give me what I longing for~
We had a crazily head spinning big day, you are not only just capturing the valuable moments that I might not see it myself on the day, but also beautifully recorded. I then realized you gotta be a superman-like multi-tasking skills to be a truly professional photographer! I know I would not missed a single moments because I have you guys~ You and your team performed far beyond excellence, without you guys, my wedding would not be as smoothed and successful.
I am truly thankful and blessed to have SiuMing and your team on my big day. Looking forward to see your art pieces, with me and Chris on them~
Fernando é um profissional altamente qualificado. Comprometido com seus clientes. Criativo e habilidoso, sua fotografia é uma verdadeira arte! Amamos todas as fotos e foi muito difícil finalizar o álbum por conta da quantidade de fotos fantásticas que ele registrou. Atendeu e até antecipou todos os prazos estabelecidos em contrato. Super recomendo!

“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!”
"Ja, da bleibt noch unser toller Fotograf... dem wir ein ganz großes Lob ausprechen müssen, die Bilder sind so super getroffen und eine wo wunderschöne Erinnerung, die für immer bleibt.
Es sind einfach die Momente zu spühren...
Ich schaue mir die Bilder momentan noch (2 Wochen nach der Hochzeit) fast jeden Tag an und bin total begeistert, wie man es schafft, die Bilder so zum Ausdruck zu bringen!
Vielen Dank dafür!"
