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
Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

Hi Everyone, I just wanted to write a brief note about the legend that is Adamo Morgese!! I'm based in London and about 5 years ago my friends got married in Italy(Almalfi Coast). After careful consideration they decided to go with Adamo for their wedding pictures and I must say the album and the pictures all 800 of them captured the amazing day! Recently the bride's twin sister got married and without a thought chose Adamo to attend her special day in the UK. One of his skills is how he just blends into the occasion and takes fantastic photos whilst mixing with the crowd and getting the best reactions from everyone. He's not trying to take over the venue or the event and just goes about his great work in the background. Recommended without questions to anyone who wants a great album! You won't even want to have a video because he tells the story so well in his pictures!! Well done and keep up the good work Adamo!!

Daniel Meyer, Gauteng, South Africa

Now I sit and look back on the memories captured on beautiful photographs, tears starts forming as I realize Daniel and Marnitz captured my dream. From the first meeting we had up on till the last moments, I had no regrets in trusting L’Afrique photography with my dream day.
You took the long drive to Timamoon Hazyview, and captured our engagement shoot with no hassles and created a perfect memory. From there on it were all smiles with the Boudoir shoot where I felt so comfortable, art captured in photos.
The BIG day arrived, where again you travelled with no hassles to Tolderia Resort Lothair, even though I was stressed you managed to get the perfect smile out of me for the most beautiful photos. You captured all the details, from the little hide away tears to the big smiles. You made our guests feel so comfortable and not once where you in anyone’s way.
With every detail, email, sms and phone call you truly made our journey hassle free.
Now I sit and look back on the memories captured and decide that this won’t be the last memories L’Afrique Photography captures for us. There will be many more memories to create.

THANK YOU DANIEL AND MARNITZ FOR MAKING OUR HEARTS SMILE

Debra Zeller, San Francisco, California

"Flipping through our old wedding photos made us reminisce about Debra Zeller and her magical photographic touch. Debra took care of us for both our engagement session and also our wedding. She handled both events with aplomb. She is friendly, easy going, and perceptive.

We couldn't be more pleased with how our photos turned out. They definitely captured the moment. We trusted Debra to pick backgrounds and scenes without suggesting much. It was the right decision because we were in good hands. So many have complimented the photos and backdrops, and especially how unique they were.

Definitely recommended with our highest opinion.

Daniel Meyer, Gauteng, South Africa

Daniel has done three shoots for us to date, he has displayed a professional demeanor on each occasion. He has the ability to encourage a comfortable atmosphere and will go the extra mile at any chance that he gets to make your day special. We are more than happy that we used Daniel to capture these special occasions in our life and look forward to keeping the tokens of our memories that he has created. We keep our album on our coffee table for all to see. Our family has gained a photographer for life and we are excited for Daniel to capture the rest of the moments that lie ahead of us.

Největší díky za tu spoustu krásných fotek, kterými jsi zvěčnil jeden z našich nejkrásnějších dní ve společném životě. Na fotky jsme se moc těšily a předčily veškerá naše očekávání. Nadšení jsme z tebe a tvé tvorby nebyly jen my, ale také všichni svatebčané, kteří šli z tvé práce do kolen. Myslíme si, že jsme si lepšího a sympatičtějšího fotografa vybrat nemohly. Jsi jedinečný a originální, toho si na tobě nesmírně vážíme. Jsme šťastní, že jsi náš velký den strávil s námi zrovna ty.

Cały czas Cie polecamy. Mówię wszystkim to co mnie urzekło jak szukałam odpowiedniego fotografa, a mianowicie Twoje zdjęcia maja coś w sobie, są naturalne, pełne życia i energii. A praca z Tobą to czysta przyjemność. Po sesji z Tobą Adrian zastanawia się nad modelingiem tak mu się spodobało ;)

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

Planning for [our wedding] day was easy with [Joanna of Carina Photographics]. It actually made the rest of our wedding planning easier! We used her checklist to make sure we had everything in order, and when we got together to plan the shots for the day, she had lots of helpful advice about when to do what and when to shoot what. It helped us make a few decisions we were on the fence about. It was nice to use the photo shoot schedule as a framework for planning the rest of the day. Piece of cake.

The big day finally came and Joanna and her assistant were on top of everything. It's clear they've done this many times before because they didn't miss a beat and they certainly didn't miss any photo opportunities. Even the big family group photos went quickly and easily. After that, we just enjoyed ourselves at the ceremony and they just blended in and captured the rest of the evening. Everything went really well.

We didn't have to wait very long at all before we could start looking at our photos online. We were blown away at how stunning the photos were. She is a rare talent and if you can get her for your wedding, you should!

We will use Carina Photographics for all of our photography needs. I don't write many reviews, but Carina is worth it. Everyone should know how great they are!

Emily Porter, Charleston, West Virginia, United States

The Oberports are amazing photographers, fun people, and now our friends (at least we think so- ha!). They are always super responsive, quick with advice, and calm in a crazy moment.

When my dress zipper broke an hour before the ceremony, Emily was positive and calming and did what she could to help my mom sew over the zipper. That is another thing- they aren't just photographers, they end up being a second and third pair of hands, confidants, and general badass, take-control kinda folks. They will make sure your grandparents are minimally inconvenienced for family photos and somehow are take-control but also very sweet while doing so.

The Oberports are the real deal!
