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
Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Rinke is ontzettend enthousiast en goed in fotograferen. Hij heeft al eerder op de bruiloft van mijn broer foto's gemaakt.
Hij is heel geïnteresseerd en doet moeite om je te leren kennen. De fotoshoot was -ondanks de regen- heel leuk. Wij voelden ons op ons gemak en de foto's zijn heel mooi geworden.
Rinke, bedankt! - Martin & Caroline

Fabio Azanha, Lisbon, Portugal

How fortunate to have found you Maria and Fábio! Our wedding had two parts, a day of Indian celebrations and another with the civil ceremony. When we had the great luck to meet you, we felt a strong chemistry, and also strong conviction that we had found the ideal photographers for our wedding. The fact that we changed the first party date to fit into your busy schedule, should  give you an idea of just how much we liked you. We really wanted our wedding to tell a story ! And we had  you exceeded all our expectations. The photos are pure art! I was a model for a few years, so  I met some good photographers ... and I can say that your photos of our wedding are the most beautiful I've seen. It was a great pleasure to witness your skils being put into practice! Thank you Maria and Fabio!

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.

Ludwig Dalen, Thun, Švýcarsko

Největší díky za tu spoustu krásných fotek, kterými jsi zvěčnil jeden z našich nejkrásnějších dní ve společném životě. Na fotky jsme se moc těšily a předčily veškerá naše očekávání. Nadšení jsme z tebe a tvé tvorby nebyly jen my, ale také všichni svatebčané, kteří šli z tvé práce do kolen. Myslíme si, že jsme si lepšího a sympatičtějšího fotografa vybrat nemohly. Jsi jedinečný a originální, toho si na tobě nesmírně vážíme. Jsme šťastní, že jsi náš velký den strávil s námi zrovna ty.

Shayne Bampton, Kingston Ontario

When we started planning our wedding, photography was near the bottom of our list. After 14 years together we had our fair share of photos, and the typical wedding photos were not our style.  We did, however, appreciate and value the idea of capturing our wedding to be able to reflect back and remember the day, so we were struggling satisfying both of these perspectives.

Shayne had a great vibe, professional but laid back.  Looking at his portfolio we could tell he had an eye for great photos. Our fears of boring, cold, lifeless photos went away

Maik Dobiey, Lima, Peru

Maik, queríamos tomarnos un minuto para agradecerte por estar con nosotros en todo el camino de nuestro matri - desde la sesión de novios, el shower y finalmente el matri el sábado - te hemos visto corretear, tirarte al piso, saltar con nosotros, y vivir cada segundo del día para que no se te escape nada. Es difícil poder escribir lo que uno siente en ese día, y es mil veces más difícil poder captarlo en una foto, y eso es lo que has hecho a la perfección. No podemos esperar a ver todas las fotos porque sabemos que serán ALUCINANTES! Te mandamos un beso y un abrazo respectivamente, y de nuevo, GRACIAS! - Majo y Ernesto

Evert Doorn, Bussum, Netherlands

“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests.  I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special day.”

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I have to say that Adrian made our wedding day so special and we have such a beautiful wedding album of the memories of this amazing day thanks to him.

We contacted Adrian four months before the wedding (wedding was on November 3rd and we contacted him in early July). I have a great professional photographer friend in NYC. I asked him to look up a photographer for me and he suggested Adrian. He liked Adrian’s portfolio the most and I am so happy that I trusted his opinion.

We signed the contract, chose the album cover (that, by the way, is very high-quality leather made in Italy and looks very luxurious) and made the first payment in July. Throughout the four months, Adrian was very professional and always responded to the emails within minutes.

On the wedding day he arrived early to see the venue. Even though this was his first wedding at this specific venue, he seemed to know his way around and felt very comfortable. He acted very professionally and I never felt bothered by the camera, yet Adrian managed to capture every detail of this special event.

The pictures came out beautifully, I really could not wish for more.

Susanna, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Susanna is AMAZING. We loved her SO much! She wanted our photos to be extra special, so she took us away from Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The scenery at that island is much more majestic than what could have been captured in the hotel zone, which we very much appreciated. Susanna was always very responsive. That is actually one of the many reasons I chose her for our special day. She has a unique eye. If you want your images to be different than anything you've ever seen before, then pick Susanna. I guarantee you, your friends and family will be in awe of your photos. I can't say enough positive things about Susanna. We are overjoyed and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. I cannot recommend her highly enough!!! Thanks again Susanna!

José Corpas, Seville, Spain

We really wanted our photographs to tell a story and capture all the special moments without being posed or awkward. We wanted to feel comfortable and feel like our photographer wasn't even there. We googled and found Nuar and from that very first click we knew we had found something special.

Living in England and finding a wedding photographer in Spain could have been difficult but from the very first email Jose put us at ease. They captured myself and Nick in our most natural self, they caught us laughing and enjoying each others company.

Finally the day came and we really could not have wished for more. Jose and Cris were professional, fun, helpful and we felt like they were guests at our wedding rather than doing a job. The care and time they put into our day was amazing and our we will be forever grateful. The special touches and the added extras they provide set them high above any other photographers. They have captured every smile, laugh, look of love, special moments and have not only given us the most amazing wedding album, they have given us a beautiful reminder of our wedding day. Everytime we look at them we are transported back to that day and those moments.

Our photographs are relaxed, natural and works of art. They provided us with the most amazing record of our special day and also gave us something even better; their friendship. Looking for a photographer? You have just found one. 

Nichola + Nick.
