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.

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

We had such a fantastic experience with Joanna. She did our engagement and wedding photos and we can't even begin to describe how happy we are with the way they turned out! She was so fun and easy going and she was totally game for anything, even when we told her we wanted to do our engagement photos in a brewery! We knew from our first meeting with her that she was our photographer. She has a great eye and a knack for capturing beautiful lighting. We were also very happy with how quickly she responded to emails and how often she stayed in touch throughout the process. We absolutely love our wedding album and the wall art that we ordered and our parents really love their albums as well. The quality is fantastic and she worked hard to make sure we got our order in time for Christmas, which was much appreciated. We can't wait to work with Joanna again in the future... Thanks again for everything, you are awesome!!

Zdjęcia z Kubą to jak najbardziej profesjonalna sesja, ale także masa świetnej zabawy i super atmosfery :)
Jego zdjęcia ślubne są zrobione w formie reportażu, oddają wszystkie emocje, dzięki nim możemy jeszcze raz przeżyć te wszystkie wspaniałe chwile. Podczas pracy jest praktycznie niezauważalny, wejdzie nawet w największe zarośla, żeby złapać cudne ujęcie.
Kuba nie potrzebuje nawet słońca, żeby złapać dobre światło :) i pokazać "głęboką, głębię" :) . Szczerze polecamy! nie mogliśmy trafić lepiej.

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! He was my sister's photographer at her wedding and he was fantastic so when my husband and I got engaged we asked her for his information. Jacek responded within hours of us emailing every single time. He was so flexible about everything. He and his assistant, Conrad, made us feel so comfortable while doing pictures and got genuine laughs out of us with their hysterical comments. He even gave me his jacket because it was cold and snowing on our wedding day! Additionally the pictures are absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to order photos and make a photo book. From black and white to creative to romantic pictures, he does it all. Also, just one week after our wedding Jacek had put up albums on his website so we could see it all again. We could not have imagined a better photographer and are so thrilled we chose him. We are already trying to figure out the next time we can utilize his services again! If you live in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, or New York area there is no better, more wonderful, more responsive photographer you could ask for. He is very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Adrian (and his partner Ivonne) captured the magic of our wedding in a beautifully unique and candid way.

If what you want is unscripted, artistic, exquisitely executed photos of your wedding day, then Adrian is your photographer. His work combines a photojournalistic approach with creative use of composition, perspective, depth of field and flash to convey the emotion of the day. His photographic style is exactly what we were looking for and is very truthfully represented on his webpage. Additionally, Adrian was a joy to work with – he was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to all requests we had.

The final printed album surpassed all our expectations; the quality of the prints and the luxurious packaging are simply way better than any we have ever seen in a wedding album.

I would gladly recommend Adrian to anyone looking for a unique and artistic photographic account of their special day.

Best regards,
Ivan & Jenny.
