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
Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

"We just went through the pictures and we are absolutely thrilled! You have an amazing eye - the pictures are aesthetically beautiful, interesting and really captured the event perfectly. I knew you were good, and I knew my choice was good - but now I think my choice was positively inspired. There are literally too many good pictures: we don't know which ones to get prints of! Thank you so much for the incredible craftsmanship; you're a real artist."

Luis Cano, Miami, Florida

El día de nuestra boda fue maravilloso y una de las cosas que hizo que lo fuera, fue el profesionalismo de Luis y su equipo de trabajo. Desde el momento en que nos hizo la cotización hasta el momento de entregarnos el trabajo final nos sentimos seguros de que sería un trabajo impecable y súper profesional. En ningún momento, en el día de la boda, nos sentimos presionados o perseguidos por ninguno de los fotógrafos y eso hizo que salieran unas fotos hermosas y muy naturales porque no sentíamos presión para tomar las fotos, con ellos sentíamos mucha confianza como si estuviéramos con cualquier otro de nuestros invitados. El momento en que recibimos el trabajo finalizado fue increíble, no podíamos creer lo bien hecho que estaba todo, lo hermoso de las fotos y lo bien presentadas, de verdad lograron hacernos revivir el día de nuestra boda y lo hacen de nuevo cada vez que las miramos. Con base en todo eso podemos decir que escogimos y tuvimos el privilegio de tener, el día de nuestra boda, el mejor equipo de fotógrafos acompañándonos y de seguro una de las empresas con mayor profesionalismo y responsabilidad. Sólo queda por decirles de nuevo: GRACIAS!” – Natalia y Jairo

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

O trabalho do Fernando Longen foi do início ao fim de extremo profissionalismo e nos surpreendeu positivamente em todos os momentos, desde as primeiras fotos do ensaio pré casamento soube nos deixar a vontade resultando em fotos descontraídas desde o início, foi extremamente flexível em aguardar o dia que conseguíssemos o nosso tão esperado pôr-do-sol, e o resultado foi maravilhoso, graças a dedicação de Fernando sempre. No making of registrou tudo até os detalhes que não percebemos, e por fim no casamento, cada sentimento, cada sorriso, cada minuto está claramente evidenciado em todas as fotos que já recebemos eficientemente logo após o casamento, resumindo, só temos a agradecer e parabenizar!

James Sturcke, Logroño, Spain

“Many thanks for everything! Your work during the wedding was fantastic. Many people asked me: ‘Who’s the fun photographer?’ or ‘is he a family friend?’… Which shows that not only did you take photos but you know how to win over the people. It was the right decision to go with you. Many thanks again for making everything so easy.” María, Zaragoza.

Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

"Flipping through our old wedding photos made us reminisce about Debra Zeller and her magical photographic touch. Debra took care of us for both our engagement session and also our wedding. She handled both events with aplomb. She is friendly, easy going, and perceptive.

We couldn't be more pleased with how our photos turned out. They definitely captured the moment. We trusted Debra to pick backgrounds and scenes without suggesting much. It was the right decision because we were in good hands. So many have complimented the photos and backdrops, and especially how unique they were.

Definitely recommended with our highest opinion.

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

Having already seen Kristopher's work at my sister's wedding it was not even a question on who I wanted to use for our wedding. He was so accommodating on our wedding day and let us take pictures in a relaxing manner. No awkward poses and we also didn't have to wait around for him to get the job done! He covered the guys pre-ceremony, he covered the ceremony, and also the reception. We can't thank him enough!
