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.

José Corpas, Seville, Spain

We recently had our wedding day and trash the dress photos with Nuar Fotografía. Well, what can we say ... WOW is a good start! ...

Life time memories captured perfectly and beautifully by two amazing people; not only professionally but also personally.

From the very start of our communication, Jose and Cris created a sincere connection with us. When looking at their photos we had no worries about the quality they would produce. However, living in the UK and marrying abroad, we were still apprehensive about choosing the right photographer but their communication was fantastic throughout and they immediately made us feel at ease ... We knew we'd picked the right people for our wedding!

Their after service also went above and beyond our expectations and they did everything they could to ensure we were given the most beautiful memories for life, in two stunning albums. On the day, Jose and Cris were complete professionals. We didn't even know they were there half the time and only now know by looking at the amazing pictures they captured without us realising!!!

We can not recommend these two people highly enough and also class them as our friends now. We are forever in their debt for capturing our special day with such magical photography! Thank you Nuar Fotografia!!!!!

An artist ! Volodomyr has talent to take a beautiful photos but his best advantage is to understand what we like. He ask us lot of questions, discussed with us and feel us. As big professional, he knows exactly what he wants, where and how. Punctual and invisible, his photos are stylish, design, in details with taste. He made us in certain spirit, without any stress, even in good mood! More than a good photographer, he is also a good person.

" We are from Brussels-Belgium. For our engagement photo shoot, we were looking for a great photographer who truly captures emotions, warm lights, and who would representate the best our  relationship on pictures. We booked Stefano from Belgium with a lot of questions that he respond quickly. That was for us very important because he always respond to all our questions and gave us advice before the photo shoot. We had a good feeling before because he was transparent. 

In italy, he called us before he arrived and was very punctual, we really appreciated his professionalism. Stefano was nice and Humourous and allways smiling so we were confortable to do the session with him. He has great attention on details and that makes his work very creative because he has eyes for beauty and emotions. When I saw his work on his website, I knew he would do Beautiful  pictures but in fact he exceeded all our expectations. Really, We can't imagine another photographer doing our precious photos. 

 

We want to thank him for his patience, the fact that he stay more time just to do great pictures, and for our spritz at the end of our session. Thank to his assistent to, they are both very nice guys!

 

Stefano sent to us the pictures in time with printed ones. He sent us a big surprise: a videoclip with our pictures, and my gosh, it was very touching, that song was the perfect one! Stefano, we love you!!!!!

Our family and friends have complimented the stunning photos  and they definitely want him as our weddingphotographer even if he's far from Belgium! they really want him and we to!

 So, if you are looking for a really great photographer and charming person, don't hesitate, Stefano is your guy! Lucky you!

Dominique Shaw, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

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!

Kristopher Gerner, Wilmington, North Carolina

Kristopher is wonderful! I had seen his work from other weddings and knew he was the photographer I wanted to go with. He is amazing, he gets shots that you didn't even know he was around for. He captured everything from our day and even more. I thought we were going to lose out on the wedding party and family photos because it rained (poured) on our wedding day, but he managed to find another location inside the venue and got some amazing shots. He even got us our photos quickly and presented it in a beautiful album for us! I would absolutely recommend him for a wedding or any type of photo shoot, he is incredibly talented.

Mark Capilitan, Sligo, Ireland

We were so lucky to have a 5 star venue and 5 star meal matched by a 5 star photography service end to end - if you put in half of the effort you put in we would have been happy so you can imagine how delighted we are with all your extra effort! Thanks Mark. Caroline & John
