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.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was the photographer at me and my wife's wedding back in June. He conducted himself in an incredibly Professional manner and the resulting photos were nothing short of stunning. Beautiful natural photos which captured every perfect moment of the day. He wasn't imposing on the wedding at all and I was really impressed with the natural style of the photos. He was also prompt with the delivery of the photos following the wedding. If you like natural style photo with an artistic professional flare, I would definitely recommend him. Cheers Jason!"

Jeannine Pohl, St. Paul, MN

"Jeannine has been simply amazing! We had engagement pictures with her and then decided to have her shoot our wedding as well and we could not be happier! She is very professional, super easy to work with, and a downright talented photographer. Thanks to her we have some of our favorite moments captured in striking detail and can enjoy them for years to come. Just look through her galleries and I'm sure you'll love her work as much as we do."

Sabrina & Jonas - Wedding in Spiez, Switzerland.

Daniel, Gauteng, South Africa

When Charl and I first met Daniel and Marnitz, we knew that we wanted no other photographers to capture our special day for us. Unfortunately another couple booked them before we could, I could hear the disappointment in Daniels voice when he phoned to tell me that they cannot do our wedding photos anymore. Fortunately (in this case), we had to postpone our wedding. As soon as I had a new date (2 years later than what we initially planned), Daniel was the first person I phoned to find out if they have the day available.

He was so thankful for us asking them once again to capture our wedding day, needless to say we booked him as soon as he said yes! The entire process was so easy which helped me a lot as I was extremely stressed out about all the other aspects of the wedding.

I am not sure who was more excited about the theme of our wedding, Daniel immediately grasped what I wanted and in all honesty I can say he managed to accomplish more than I could ever imagine.

On our wedding day, Marnitz met up with the guys and took some really awesome photographs! I take my hat off to him as I know how difficult guys can be when it comes to photos. Daniel met with me early on that morning and he just fitted right in! My family adored him from the second they met Daniel.

As I was finishing up, Daniel said that he managed to get us into the Premier Hotel to take some photos in the basement/wine cellar. Once again, I was blown away by his willingness to achieve the full effect of the 50’s theme.

We received our photos a few months later, in what I can only descried as the most stunning wooden box ever! I was expecting a small box with a memory stick in it, but once again L’Afrique went that extra mile and made it so much more special than what we expected!

I would recommend L’Afrique to anyone who wants to be treated like royalty. The amazing photos was just an added bonus to the excellent service and photographers!

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Fotografie, które wykonał Kuba pozwoliły nam przenieść się z powrotem w tę magiczną atmosferę jednego z najważniejszych dla nas dni. Kuba nie patrzy nas świat przez zwyczajny obiektyw, On patrzy na świat emocjami, które w mistrzowski sposób potrafi ukazać na fotografiach.

Danilo Muratore, Calabria, italy

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.

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.
