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
Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

Mario was such a pleasure to work with during our wedding, we absolutely love how our photos came out. Everyone who has seen them has been in awe at how beautiful they are. I have heard over and over that they are the best wedding photos anyone has seen yet. People can see in our photos how much fun my husband and I were having and can see how in love we are. Mario brought that all out in his photos. Very impressed with everything. Anytime I emailed Mario he got right back to me. We received our discs only a few weeks after the wedding and I was able to look at the proofs through his site within two weeks which was great!
I would highly recommend Mario to anyone who is looking for a great photographer. I was very picky about who we hired and did a lot of research prior to finding him and I am so happy we ended up hired him.

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

Joanna is the best wedding photographer out there. She captured our wedding with such an artistic flare and intimate feeling. I still stare at all our pictures and find a new favorite every week. We loved working with Joanna so much that we had her take our maternity photos as well as our baby’s newborn photos. Again, she captured the moments beautifully and we will continue to use her as our family photographer to capture all our life moments. THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!!

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

We zijn blij dat we voor Rinke hebben gekozen als fotograaf voor ons huwelijk. Hij is een echte professional met oog voor sfeer en detail. Hij is duidelijk als het moet, bijvoorbeeld tijdens de shoot, en onzichtbaar tijdens de ceremonie. - Paul & Christy

Jesse La Plante, Denver, Colorado

“Our story it isn't a perfect fairy tale wedding story. However, our photographers’ craftsmanship tells a different story. Jesse and Moira are BEYOND amazing photographers. They're amazing people. Jesse and Moira flew into Boston several days beforehand, easing any fears I had of them not becoming familiar with the area and venue. They surveyed the land and took a walk around our 90 acre farm to find 'prime shooting locations'. The duo needed very little attention from me, and were independent on the morning of the wedding, professionally navigating their way around the property and through guests. I was a barrel of emotions on our wedding day in August. Jesse and Moira were there for us every step of the way. In the morning, despite the pouring rain, Moira kept me happy and calm while she clicked away at the details and kept my bridesmaids and I moving (it's easy to get sidetracked when there's a bunch of women in your tiny apartment) and Jesse captured all of the special moments with 'the boys.’ When things seemed to go awry, I found myself turning to Moira and asking for her advice. She handled each scenario I brought to her with professionalism and grace. As the day went on and a handful of alarming events took place (including but not limited to an ambulance arriving for a family member), Jesse and Moira became beacons for solace. They kept us smiling and moving, and ensured they captured beautiful moments we didn't even know were happening. At one point, while we were walking in the rain, I turned to Jesse and Moira and I told them that I didn't know if I could've done the day without them. Now, as I peruse our gorgeous wedding album, I still feel the same way. They captured the fairy tale wedding we didn't even quite realize we were having. Your wedding day is going to be complex and full of surprises (hopefully all good!)... there is no question on whom I recommend to take this journey with you and your to-be. Perfect team, perfect photos.”

We were so lucky to have a 5 star venue and 5 star meal matched by a 5 star photography service end to end - if you put in half of the effort you put in we would have been happy so you can imagine how delighted we are with all your extra effort! Thanks Mark. Caroline & John

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Kuba jest takim fotografem, który pojawia się zawsze tam, gdzie trzeba i jednocześnie sprawia wrażenie że nie czujesz obecności jego krępującego, bądź co bądź, obiektywu. Będzie on świetnym wyborem na fotografa jeśli w tym Wielkim Dniu nie chcecie czuć się ustawiani, ale wyłącznie dyskretnie i humorystycznie kierowani. Współpraca z Kubą zaowocowała dla nas też tym, że uchwycił on te spojrzenia i emocje naszych gości, których my nie mieliśmy okazji dojrzeć w natłoku zdarzeń. Dzięki Kubie odczuliśmy i zapamiętaliśmy ten dzień jeszcze głębiej i prawdziwiej, bo nasz fotograf pokazał i przypomniał nam co działo się pomiędzy nami oraz naszymi gośćmi.

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Fotograf magik. Mega zdolny. Przesympatyczny. Aż ma się ochotę robić sesje co tydzień! Widać, że nie kupił aparatu na promocji w Tesco. Miód, cud i orzeszki! Blichtr i splendor. A tak poważnie (bo ta opinia ma się do czegoś nadać): jesteśmy zachwyceni Kubą i Jego zdolnościami. Dziękujemy!

Jeśli ktoś z naszych Znajomych kiedykolwiek będzie szukał Pana Foto to bez wahania Ciebie polecimy. Skrócenie dystansu poprzez przejście „na ty”, omówienie naszych oczekiwań/Twoich możliwości spowodowało, że czuliśmy się przy Tobie swobodnie. Zarówno przed ceremonią, podczas ceremonii i na sesji zdjęciowej. Mieliśmy pewność, że zdjęcia spełnią nasze oczekiwania. Twoje poczucie humoru i komentarze pozwalały na naturalne zachowanie (przecież nawet fotomodelki fotoszopują, więc i na nas znajdziesz sposób) ;). Zdjęcia są przecudowne i oddają w 100% nasze charaktery.
