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.

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

James was amazing! He was really easy to work with and flexible; he worked with me and not against me. He did not cause any stress to wedding planning or the wedding day. He was also quick with the video; I received my video a lot sooner than many friends who used someone else. Also, his highlight video was the best I've seen and I have shared it to many friends who all agree. James is a must have at your event.

Ramya Dushyanth The best form of getting to know about a business is through word of mouth. That was how me and my husband stumbled uponHiQ photographers. Two of our friends had used them as photographers for their wedding and when me and my husband saw those pictures, we felt that we missed out such a talented photographer (Murali, anna) for our wedding. But luckily our families wanted a grand affair to celebrate our pregnancy and threw a lavish baby shower. This time, we looked no further and asked HiQ photographers to capture the images. It was very easy to contact and book them, as I was already a fan of their FB page. On the day of the event, Anna and his team members were very co-operative and silently carried out their work. Anna is avery artistic person and asked us to pose in special poses. The pictures are lovely and look like a dream!! The pictures even adorn the walls of our living room!!

Preetha Nandakumar HIQ team is one of the best weddingphotographers I have ever seen. It was an absolute pleasure to have them as ourwedding photographer. Photoshoot was a fun filled experience and we thoroughlyenjoyed those moments. We liked the whole procedure which they followed likediscussing the events, counselling given to me and my husband before thewedding in order to bring out the best shots. The best of all was the weddingalbum they delivered, which was of utmost quality and all of us in our familyloved it at the first sight. Short film created by them depicts all our weddingceremonies, right from Mehendi to Wedding and Reception on the whole and wassomething different from the usual wedding videos.Whole family was amusedseeing the video. Immense work has been put up by Murali and team to deliverproducts with great quality. We feel them as an asset to possess for a lifetime. Great team spirit and way to go HIQ team. All the very Best Murali andTeam. Chandrika + Pruthvi Weddings are always special, not just for twopeople but for two families. Murali and team did a fantastic job in capturing every moment of our wedding, delighting us and our families. The ideas and effort behind every photograph clearly shows. Kudos to Hi-Q photographers!

Veena + Kiran I have great memories from my life immortalised in print by Murali. HiQ Weddings team is brilliant. They pay very close attention to the details in the event and try to get to know you ahead of the event. They also put a lot of work to showcase the best look of a person or a place. They stay alert during events to capture intimate, funny and many such essential moments we would like to remember. Every event in our house for the last 10 years has been covered by Murali and team. I am a happy client and would recommendHiQ Photographers to all my friends and relatives. Kudos!!!

Fernando é um profissional altamente qualificado. Comprometido com seus clientes. Criativo e habilidoso, sua fotografia é uma verdadeira arte!

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!

Lukas Bezila, Vienna, Austria

Dear Lukas, we’ve just seen the pictures from our wedding and are moved to tears. So many emotions, so many moments getting alive in your pictures. Thank you so much!

"Thank you soooo much for the photos!!! I love them all :-)!!!  Again, thank you very much for all these beautiful pictures and spending your time for this."  Elena, Florence, Kentucky.

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason is a lovely laid back guy who takes the most beautiful photos in a completely unobtrusive manner. If you want the perfect photographic memory of your special occasion where the photos just happen and don't take over then Jason is the perfect man for the job. Plus on top of all that, his prices are beyond reasonable, book him now before the secret of his brilliance gets out and his cost goes through the roof and availability is non existent! I promise you won't regret it, he is truly amazing!"

James McCoy, Charleston, South Carolina

From the very first minute we saw James' portfolio we knew that we found our dream photographer and actually our expectations were exceeded far beyond words can express. Thank you, James, for being so professional, punctual, courteous, attentive to details and thank you for capturing so many great moments - all the photos are so naturally beautiful and so ALIVE. We will never get tired of going through the photos again and again. We admire your talent and wish we could turn back time and experience our wedding day again! Thank you for putting your heart into everything you're doing! We love you!

Jake and Anna
