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
Martin Hecht, Göppingen, Germany

Lieber Martin
Du hast unsere Hochzeit in so vielerlei Hinsicht bereichert.
Du hast dich damals mit den Worten vorgestellt, dass du an diesem Tag nicht "nur" unser Hochzeitsfotograf, sondern auch Freund und Gast zugleich sein wirst. 
Und du warst an diesem Tag noch so viel mehr für uns. 
Den ganzen Tag über bist du uns mit Rat, Tat und Kamera zur Seite gestanden.
Immer wieder wurden wir von unseren Gästen gefragt, wie lange wir dich schon kennen, und immer wieder ernteten wir ungläubige Blicke, als wir sagten wir sehen uns heute das zweite mal. 
Und somit waren nicht nur wir, sondern auch alle unsere Gäste, sowohl von dir als Mensch, als auch von deinem fotografischen Können restlos begeistert.
Du hast diesen unvergesslichen Tag von Anfang bis Ende für uns in so vielen wunderschönen Momenten für immer festgehalten, und das ist unbezahlbar.
Christina und Thomas

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

We used Adamo as the photographer for our wedding in Tuscany in late October 2012. We couldn't have been happier with Adamo's presence at our wedding, he made us feel comfortable and he had a great sense of humour. We had pictures taken in the Siena Town Hall where we were married and then Adamo chose some amazing spots in the countryside on the way back to our Villa to take photos. We now have some beautiful photos taken in a spectacular and truly Tuscan setting. The photos back at the Villa Stomennano that we had hired for the wedding celebrations are gorgeous. Adamo's photos of my Husband and I are fantastic and we have some gorgeous family and group photos which really capture the excitement and happiness of the day.

Thanks Adamo we are so happy that you were the photographer for our wedding day.

Dimitri Voronov, Barcelona (Spain)

¡Increíble equipo profesional de Dima y Anna! Merece la pena pedir el paquete de "top" con fotos, vídeos y álbum de fotos. Anna hizo un vídeo de boda hermoso y Dima tomó fotos preciosas. Pendrive con fotos y álbum de fotos entregado, ¡un servicio fantástico! ¡Hicieron que nuestro día de la boda aún más especial! ¡Muchas gracias chicos! 

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.

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.

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!

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Thanks for the pictures. All looks stunning! - Thomas & Rosanne

 

 

 

Dominique Shaw, Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"I’m not sure how to explain how or why we choose Dom and Liam from York Place Studios – we actually booked them in before we even had a firm date or venue. There was just something about the way they captured lots of little moments and you can actually feel the spirit of the weddings they photograph coming out of the screen.

Apart from 1 skype catch up about 2 weeks prior we hadn’t ever actually spoken to or met them – all communication was done via email. When they turned up on the day it felt like old friends had arrived – they managed to put me at ease instantly. My dad summed them both up perfectly – they managed to always be around but at no point were they intrusive or in the way.

They stayed with us from 9am through til 1am and it was touch and go as to whether they’d make it home due to another flurry of snow. Their dedication went to the max when Dom asked me at one point if there were any spare mattresses they could sleep on if they couldn’t get home!" - Sarah & Richard
