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.

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Serine and Tarek's had their wedding photo-shoot session in a magical place at the lowest point on earth, the Deadsea. It was one of the hottest days of the year, she had to bare a wedding gown and move and dance in it and had to survive in a tuxedo and a bow tie. they both were agitated, I tried to sooth them down and take away the agitation and the result was this, a reflection of the beautiful couple happily and madly in love and showing everyone including them how perfect they are for each other.

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.

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!

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between me and the groom about the type of camera one should use and the technicality the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the photos and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that it wasn’t about the camera but about the photographer.
