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.

Wow, te gekke fotoverslag van onze trouwdag! Tikje eigenzinnig. Wij vinden het i.i.g. geniaal! - Stefan & Eveline

Stefan Redel, Bocholt, Germany

"Hallo Stefan, gestern Nachmittag hat uns der Paketbote unser Hochzeitsalbum gebracht. Was sollen wir sagen? Wir sind total begeistert, so wunderschön ist es geworden.

In der Vorschau, die du uns geschickt hattest, konnte man das fertige Produkt ja schon ein wenig erahnen. Wenn man es dann aber in den Händen hält, ist es viel schöner, als man es sich vorgestellt hatte und lässt den Hochzeitstag mit allen Gedanken und Gefühlen, die man hatte, wie in einem Film an einem vorüber laufen. Aber das soll auch so sein.

Allein schon die Optik des Buches ist überzeugend. Der Einband und die Qualität des Papiers fühlen sich sehr edel an und haben eine entsprechende Wirkung. Durch die Layflat- Bindung verlieren auch die über zwei Seiten gezogenen Fotos nichts an ihrer Schönheit und Aussage. Das alles ist nicht zu vergleichen mit dem, was man bekommt, wenn man seine Urlaubsfotos für den "Hausgebrauch" in ein Fotobuch packt und es bei "bilderplanet" & Co. bestellt - selbst, wenn man eine höherwertige Papierqualität als die Standardausführung wählt. Aber ein Hochzeitsalbum sollte ja auch etwas ganz Besonderes sein. Es ist aber nicht nur die Qualität, die überzeugt. Du hast das Album mit profihaftem Blick auch optimal gestaltet mit den diversen Effekten, Weichzeichnern, Hintergrundfarben etc. Nicht zuletzt der Brautstrauß mit dem Gedicht "Love is..." auf der letzten Seite gibt dem Ganzen einen krönenden Abschluss. Weihnachten werden wir es ganz stolz der Familie präsentieren.

Wir danken dir sehr, sehr herzlich für alles und haben unsere Entscheidung, dich "zu buchen", wann man das so sagen darf, zu keiner Sekunde bereut."

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!!!!!

We chose Mr. Lunardi as our Wedding Photographer because of his outstanding and incredible


Stefano Lunardi caught all the right moments and expressions at all the right times and the quality


of the pictures is wonderful. He photographed in color and in black/white, and they are all incredibly


edited. He works with shadows and light in a very special way and makes every photo live. He


chose no less then the very best of his work to return to us perfectly edited and extremely thought


through. He cared a great deal about us and was very easy to talk to and work with after the


wedding, as during the wedding day, to decide which photos to choose for the fantastic photo book


he creates. We will highly recommend Stefano Lunardi to any couple who is getting married and of


There is no fear of a rainy day, Stefano Lunardi will just make the rain light up the picture!

"Jason was our lovely photogher in October. He was quiet & non intrusive & took images by observing & not ordering about. He is a genuinely lovely person who was so kind to us & both understood what made us tick as a couple & also understood our love of colour. He edited our images to perfection and we could not even attempt to choose a favourite. At one point I thought something was wrong as he was quiet, only to be told he was happy enjoying a coffee, well deserved too. He stayed for hours, longer than expected & didn't ask for anything, bother or bug. He simply helps us enjoy! Xxx" Loren and James.

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

Conhecemos o trabalho do Fernando em 2012, quando ele fotografou o casamento da minha cunhada. No inicio optamos pelo seu trabalho devido as recomendações que ela nos fez e pelas maravilhosas fotos que ele registrou no casamento dela, mas depois do nossa primeira conversa com ele os motivos por termos escolhido ele como nosso fotografo só aumentaram!! Além de ser muito comprometido com o seu trabalho, o Fernando é um cara super bacana, divertido e criativo! No nosso ensaio pré casamento, além de nos dar várias idéias e topar nossas idéias, ele nos deixou super a vontade em frente as câmeras, nos fez curtir demais esse dia e as fotos, claro, ficaram lindas, naturais e com a nossa cara! No dia do casamento, desde o making of, estava ele lá, me tranquilizando, me fazendo rir e claro, registrando lindas fotos. Durante nossa festa foi super atencioso com todos os nossos convidados, estava presente em todos os momentos, em todos os ângulos! Nós aproveitamos muito a nossa festa, e tenho a impressão que todos os lados que olhava lá estava o Fernando e seu flash, no meio da pista, registrando tudo!! E as fotos desse dia tão especial em nossas vidas são maravilhosas, demonstram exatamente todos os sentimentos daqueles momentos, emocionam demais! E além de tudo isso, ele ainda entende nossa ansiedade pós-casamento, entregou as fotos muito rápido e com um material de excelente qualidade.

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jan Plachy, Vienna, Austria

Great team, excellent results

Jan and Marianna, you have truly delighted the bride & groom.  Weddings are a happy occasion and you want it to remain that way each time you re-live your day through the photos.  Photographing people at their best is a tricky business and you managed it superbly:  whether posing the bride & groom for formals or candid shots at the reception, everyone looks happy, natural and as you remember it.  And you did this despite the distraction of the fairytale wedding location that might have proved too much of a temptation for some photographers.  This sums up the reason we chose you, and an excellent decision it turned out to be.  We also love the “video book”: it’s a 4-minute on-screen version of the wedding book you would proudly display on your coffee table if it were in printed form.  Thanks for being easy to work with, your hard work on and after the day, but mostly for the fabulous digital memories.”
