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.

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Wanneer je Rinke kiest als trouwfotograaf ben je verzekerd van het vastleggen van de spontane en emotievolle momenten op jullie dag. Nauwelijks merkbaar aanwezig, maar heeft de lach en de traan goed vast weten te leggen. Daarnaast zie je zijn liefde voor foto’s en oog voor detail terug in het album. - Niels & Luciënne

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Serine and Tarek's had their wedding photo-shoot session in a magical place at the lowest point on earth, the Deadsea. It was one of the hottest days of the year, she had to bare a wedding gown and move and dance in it and had to survive in a tuxedo and a bow tie. they both were agitated, I tried to sooth them down and take away the agitation and the result was this, a reflection of the beautiful couple happily and madly in love and showing everyone including them how perfect they are for each other.

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

If you are looking for a photographer who can translate into pictures the emotions of your big day, that expresses the spontaneity and naturalness of a gesture, a look, representing the various times of the day from different points of view, here, this photographer does for you! We were looking for the report service, for not having the stress of those who tells you to do the poses, and the service from the point of view has made our wishes, immediately putting everyone at ease thanks to their professionalism and sympathy.

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

"Jesse and Moira did the photography at our destination wedding this past October in Mexico. I was thrilled that they were willing to travel that far since I have always been impressed with their work and always had hoped to hire them for my own wedding. Our wedding definitely showed how well prepared they are and how wonderful they are at what they do. We had a traditional Mayan ceremony on the beach. To be totally honest we didn't know what all the ceremony involved so everything was a surprise. There was so much going on between dancers, and the Shaman, and the guests that I felt like I was missing parts of the ceremony while it was happening, but Jesse and Moira didn't miss a beat of our wedding. If I hadn't known better I would have said that they had photographed a Mayan ceremony before because they captured everything so perfectly while also being extremely discrete. We only had a few poses in mind and left the ideas of the other photos up to them since that is what they do after all. Each and every picture came out beautifully and we could not be happier with them. They started with the "getting ready" photos and did not stop capturing our day until after our night shoot on the beach. This was exceptionally important to us as not all of our friends and family were able to make it to our wedding so now we can show them all of our pictures that tell the story of our special day. I definitely recommend them, trust me you will not be dissapointed!"

Viktor und Ekaterina

Am 19.08.2014 haben wir unsere Kirchliche Hochzeit gefeiert. Einen wirklich guten Video- und Fotografen zu finden stand natürlich ganz oben auf der Liste. Im Internet sind wir zufällig auf Volodimir und Igor gestoßen und waren direkt von ihren Fotos und Videos begeistert. Die Organisation war unkompliziert, zur Hochzeit sind alle pünktlich gekommen, die Atmosphäre war offen und sehr positiv! Alle Gäste hatten Spaß mit den Fotografen und strahlen auf allen Bildern. Die Fotos sind einfach traumhaft geworden und beim Video stehen mir immer Tränen in den Augen. Wir können IVASH Photography nur weiterempfehlen! Vielen Dank für so tolle Erinnerungen!

Photos are one of the most important wedding things, because they’ll be with you whole life. 
Igor not just making photos, he creating masterpiece. Without any doubt it’s a real talent! 
I’m glad that we’ve choose Igor as our wedding photographer, because photos that we’ve got are amazing, you want to look at them again and again. 
Igor, thank you so much!


James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

I was so pleased with the profesionalism, and flexibility James provided form the very first consultation. He was not only on time but an hour early! We couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience!

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Mario exceeded all of our expectations by leaps and bounds! From our very first e-mail to communications after the wedding he has always responded to all questions, promptly, professionally and with good humor. He was also absolutely wonderful to work with in person! Somehow , he managed to disappear into the crowd but was always ready to unobtrusively snap a photo when a great moment popped up or a group of guests asked for shot. Throughout the night several people told us that they wish they'd had him for their weddings! We liked him so much, that if he weren't already our photographer, we would have loved to have him at the wedding as a guest!

As far as his skills as a photographer go, his portfolio more than speaks for itself. We absolutely love our photos and how he managed to capture not only shots incorporating the beauty of the island but also our hapiness and love for each other! We're amazed at how vibrant they are and I can't imagine any way to more completely capture the feel of ceremony and evening. Whenever we look back at them in the years to come, they'll instantly take us back to how it felt to be newly married and celebrating with our friends and family!

If you're considering Mario for your event absolutely hire him, you simply won't find anyone better!


Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Rinke is ontzettend enthousiast en goed in fotograferen. Hij heeft al eerder op de bruiloft van mijn broer foto's gemaakt.
Hij is heel geïnteresseerd en doet moeite om je te leren kennen. De fotoshoot was -ondanks de regen- heel leuk. Wij voelden ons op ons gemak en de foto's zijn heel mooi geworden.
Rinke, bedankt! - Martin & Caroline
