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.

Testimonials
Andreu Doz, Barcelona, Spain

We got the photos in the post and have watched the DVD.  They are fabulous and we are so delighted with them.  We could not have hoped for any better photographers. You guys were even better than we could have imagined.  We will gladly put a review on your website or Facebook if you wish. We now have a big problem to choose the best ones for the magazine :)

If you ever come to Galway in Ireland, please get in touch with us, and we will bring you for the best tapas outside of Barcelona!

We would like to tell you not one but many many many very sincere and so well deserved thank you!!!

Thanks to you, we've in picture what we really lived and not only images of what happened. You've managed to capture the atmosphere of our special day and every time we look at the photos we can feel again all these emotions! That's such a gift! And most impressively, you’ve made that happen effortlessly with such discretion, professionalism and enthusiasm.

I think everyone of our guests was under your spell after the video projected at the end of the day! We had so many compliments!

With the amazing “Engagement Session” in London few months before the wedding day, we’ve got to know each other a little bit more and you’ve made us feel confortable with your camera and even forget about it!!! (Which was a serious challenge for us!)

And last but not least, we're so grateful for your open mind to our numerous requests.

It was a great pleasure for us to share with you all these moments and if we had to do it all over again, we would, in the blink of an eye, ask you again!

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek is a cut above the rest!! He is extremely talented & very passionate about his work. For our outdoor wedding reception, he captured the most beautiful photos that had a magical quality of light. He took all of the family standard shots in such an efficient way that my husband & I even got a chance to enjoy our cocktail hour! He was not in our face or intrusive during the wedding at all, yet he still got all of the shots. He was so well organized & he always returned my calls or emails very quickly. Jacek loves to photograph & the proof of that is obvious in the stunning photos he takes. He is an artist & was a joy to work with. My husband, my family, and I are so glad that he was our photographer. I could not be happier - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACEK!

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was completely unobtrusive and discreetly captured natural photographs throughout our day, leaving us to just enjoy ourselves. If it's a reportage style you're after, then Jason is the photographer for you. I would recommend the reportage style for any couple that are self conscious, or don't want to take time out of their wedding for endless posed photos. Jason will however take set pieces if you ask him and I think it's good to have a few. We were really happy with both the set piece photos and the natural reportage style ones. It's nice to look at the moments that were captured and know that they were real." Lucy and Adam.

Dimitri Voronov, Barcelona (Spain)

Es un profesional en todos los sentidos. Tanto Dimitri como su mujer nos trataron genial y con indicaciones claras para que todo saliera perfecto. Las fotos que hemos podido ver, geniales. Para principiantes como nosotros que no habíamos hecho ningún reportaje antes, nos costó soltarnos, pero ahí estaba esta pareja de fotógrafos que nos acompañaron en este día tan especial. Deseando de que pasen los días para recibir el resto de las fotos y el vídeo. Gracias por todo el trabajo realizado con nosotros Dimitri.
