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
Daniel, Gauteng, South Africa

Someone once asked me if I believe in Love at first sight ….. Well … Off course

First I met my husband, soulmate and best friend who I knew from the beginning was the one.
Then came Daniel Lardus my photographer. One Sunday morning he was doing a shoot for a client when I met him, but talk about LUCK!!

He showed me a few pictures and I just knew I had to have him…..For my wedding off course.

I was a wedding planner for a venue in Pretoria East at that time and I worked with a few photographers day in and day out but there was just something about him.
Im very peculiar on what type of photos I want, how long I wanted to spend on photos and I want to be able to choose how, when and were ( making life difficult for him ) but he really didn’t mind at all.
He is such an amazing photographer making you feel comfortable and being so professional at the same time I would recommend him to any bride as stress and being uncomfortable is one of the last things you need on the day … seeing as there is enough already.

His work is really something special, something different as he does every shoot according to who and what you are and want.

Brides take my word I would recommend him any time to anyone. Not only having met an amazing photographer but now also having a lifelong friend. Remember that photos last you a lifetime showing and telling your children and grandchildren about your special day. You can never go back and change it so make the right choice from the beginning.

" We are from Brussels-Belgium. For our engagement photo shoot, we were looking for a great photographer who truly captures emotions, warm lights, and who would representate the best our  relationship on pictures. We booked Stefano from Belgium with a lot of questions that he respond quickly. That was for us very important because he always respond to all our questions and gave us advice before the photo shoot. We had a good feeling before because he was transparent. 

In italy, he called us before he arrived and was very punctual, we really appreciated his professionalism. Stefano was nice and Humourous and allways smiling so we were confortable to do the session with him. He has great attention on details and that makes his work very creative because he has eyes for beauty and emotions. When I saw his work on his website, I knew he would do Beautiful  pictures but in fact he exceeded all our expectations. Really, We can't imagine another photographer doing our precious photos. 

 

We want to thank him for his patience, the fact that he stay more time just to do great pictures, and for our spritz at the end of our session. Thank to his assistent to, they are both very nice guys!

 

Stefano sent to us the pictures in time with printed ones. He sent us a big surprise: a videoclip with our pictures, and my gosh, it was very touching, that song was the perfect one! Stefano, we love you!!!!!

Our family and friends have complimented the stunning photos  and they definitely want him as our weddingphotographer even if he's far from Belgium! they really want him and we to!

 So, if you are looking for a really great photographer and charming person, don't hesitate, Stefano is your guy! Lucky you!

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

Super recomendo!

Julien Leveau, Puerto Vallarta - Mexico

 

Julien in my opinion is not a wedding photographer but an artist. As a bride I could not have been happier with my wedding pictures as they captured the essence of every moment of my wedding day. The photographs are simply outstanding. I was fortunate to have traveled to Puerto Vallarta a couple of months before the wedding to plan my perfect day with my mother and we had the pleasure of meeting Julien during our trip. We hired him during our meeting not only because he was highly recommended and we had previously seen samples of his work on his blog but most importantly we hired him because he was friendly and incredibly passionate about his work. And now that the wedding is behind us, we could have not made a better decision. During the wedding day he was everywhere capturing every moment; and now every picture tells a story. On the day of the wedding, Julien and his assistant were on time, prepared, and came with a flexible and super friendly attitude. Julien in my honest opinion is the absolute best photographer in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding areas and he charges a fair price for his work. When I met with him he set up realistic expectations on when I was supposed to receive my pictures and he delivered before the deadline, which I was incredibly happy about. 

To any bride out there looking for a phenomenal photographer, Julien is your guy!!! It was great meeting him before the wedding but looking back now, it was unnecessary as his passion for his work provides you as a bride with stunning photographs of your wedding. 

Thank you Julien on behalf of my husband and I and all our wedding guests and family who loved your work!
