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.

Hi!  Thank you so much for the pictures!!  They are great!!!!  It was great to see what I missed because I was so focused on other things. We loved having you both at the wedding and sharing our special day.  Meher was great with all the little details I didn't even think about.  
Now we just need another excuse to have you guys take pics of us again. =)

Hi Marcel & Meher,

The pictures are truly spectacular!!!  Thank you both so, so much.  You managed to capture the entire day for us—I’m blown away.  I actually just went through all 900+pictures (even though I’m at work) and I literally re-lived that day.  Can’t tell you how happy it made me.  We will be ordering quite a few pictures, and then putting together an album at some point, but in the meantime I’ll probably just scroll through that slideshow another 100 times… it’s amazing.

Thank you again!!!

Best,

Rachel & Nikki

Many thanks again for your great work!

Daniel West, Gauteng, South Africa

I would like to thank Daniel West Photography for our AMAZING wedding photos.

We got married on the 7th of December 2012 and heard of Daniel West from a friend, we met with Daniel a few times discussing ideas. He was polite, friendly and made us feel very comfortable from the start.

We enjoyed doing a very fun pre wedding shoot with him (needless to say the photos came out stunning) he really captured our relationship. I really love the pre wedding shoot photos. I had such an amazing bridal party we also decided to do a bridesmaid shoot which the girls loved it was so much fun.Finally we got to the wedding, and Daniel West Photography was there with us through every step, to capture every moment.

Our photos came out stunning! Natural! I could not believe how he captured the finer details of our special day. The albums came together so nicely. Telling the whole days story from beginning to end.

Our guests can not stop telling me what a delight he was, and how stunning the photos, canvases and albums are.

Thanks so much Daniel!!!

Adrian Bonet, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Many brides have that special moment when they find “THE DRESS.” Don’t get me wrong, I loved my dress.

But, my butterflies-in-my-stomach, jump-up-and-down, do-a-little-dance moment came when I found “THE PHOTOGRAPHER.”

You know how it goes, you spend hours looking at website after website of photographers and none of them speak to you, inspire you, or even make you smile. Then … I found Adrian.

Adrian and his partner, Ivonne, are masters at their craft. I fell in love with his candid pictures and portraits of the bride and groom. I also love that he took a lot of portraits of individual guests. My absolute favorite part of his pictures is the lighting and softness. The pictures are romantic, warm, and draw you in.

From beginning to end, working with Adrian was wonderful. He responded to emails quickly. My husband and I did not want any posed pictures, so Adrian’s style was right up our alley. They worked their magic all night snapping away and were practically invisible. You didn’t even notice them. They seemed to be at just the right place at just the right time. And captured so many magical moments.

End result? Stunning pictures that truly captured our special day. Each time I look at them, I feel as though I’m there … in the moment. And a lot of my guests have stunning, beautifully lit portraits, too. I just love that.

I would choose Adrian and Ivonne again and again. They were the best decision we made in our wedding planning. Hands down.

Andreu Doz, Barcelona, Spain

Thank you so much for the quick turn around on the photos! They are fantastic and we absolutely love them!! Needless to say, you both far surpassed our expectations with your beautiful work and we couldn't be happier! Thank you again so, so much! Hope all is well!

PS - those reflection shots in the puddle that you really went for turned out incredible!!! We were so excited about how great they turned out!

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

Tom and I looked at many portfolios online, including English photographers with the intention of flying them to Greece, however no photos took our eye like Sovisual Photography's! Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we now have the best memory to hold forever - our photos! Sandy and Odysseas did an exceptional job and fulfilled and surpassed all of our expectations. Not only do we have the most beautiful photo's, we also made two new friends!

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
  They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening

De details, belichting, spontaniteit en creativiteit hebben gezorgd voor prachtige fotografie! Onopvallend op de dag, maar geeft de juiste tips op het moment dat dit nodig is. Het album is een helder en mooi resultaat die de sfeer van de dag goed laat zien.  - Thomas & Sanne

Mario Nixon, Nassau, Bahamas

There are not enough words for me to describe the value of Mario's service to us. Firstly, let me start by saying that I was a travel agent in Toronto, Canada, when I planned MY destination wedding in the Bahamas, in July 2011. I came across Mario's work on-line and saw that he had a great eye for group shots and for capturing intimate moments and emotions....which were both key for me because if all else failed on the wedding day, (and it almost did), what I wanted more than anything were amazing pictures to capture the beauty of the day and the Bahamas...and Mario nailed it!!

He was on time, he was professional, his pricing was fair (worth every dime) and he was so pleasant to work with. One thing I loved was that he almost disappeared into the crowd, so he didn't get in the way of others wanting to take pictures, but didn't miss a beat either. He's truly gifted and anointed and I would recommend him to anyone!!

Sadly, in October, just 2 months after the wedding, my father was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away shortly after in February, and so those last pictures of my dad mean so much more to us. We now have these amazing pictures that have become precious memories that we truly treasure and are grateful to Mario for. He captured, what my father said was, the happiest day of his life and because they were some of the BEST pictures my dad ever took, we used many of them for his funeral.

So dearest Mario, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for putting your heart and soul into your work and may God continue to bless you, always!! :)
