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.

The ISPWP has the strictist membership criteria of any wedding photographer organization.

Each application is voted on by current ISPWP members.

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Behind this image was an argument between the groom and I about the type of camera one should use and the technical features the camera has as he takes on photography as a hobby. Both of them, the weather and the sky were perfect. After taking the images and showing them to Ahmad and Nadine I’m sure they both are now convinced that ‘"it’s not about the camera but about the photographer".

Artem & Katia

Zhenya, we wholeheartedly want to thank you! The wedding day got away from me, but you captured the most important moments. It was funny and lively. Pictures are vivid, bright and some of them are funny. Waiting was worthy of it. We wish you success in your life!

Daniel Maldonado, Quito, Ecuador

"Daniel is a great photographer and person. We loved working with him. Due to its professionalism, openness, detail care and artistic vision in general, we recommend it to all couples who want to have good photographic memories of their marriage" Daniela and Amaar

Olechka! Thank you very much for your work! We really enjoyed it! Simply super! In fact- we recommend you, you are very good people! Once again, many thanks! Good luck!


Philip Stephenson, Paris, France

Dear Philip, I hope you and your family are all doing very well! Andy and I flew back from Thailand yesterday, moving back to London for a few years. We've just been looking at last, (we've been so looking forward to seeing them) through our wedding album and they are absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for all your hard work. We were just saying again how very lucky we feel to have found you- you felt like an important part of our big day and my family loved having you there. The pictures are incredible and such a special reminder of that day- beautiful beautiful albums too! I'm really glad we went for 2 in the end; it was too hard cutting them down from the original selection! It was extra special looking at the albums this morning as we've got some exciting news; a new Perrins addition to our family who is due in September! I can't wait to them the photos one day. Thank you so much and best of luck with your busy summer season! All those newly weds will be very lucky to have you as their photographer. Kind regards, Katherine and Andy

Amazing!!! Marcos took our wedding photos and they are truly beautiful. He captured the venue, and the whole atmosphere in a way that brings the images back to life again.

"Thank you!!"

"Chaps, we just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for all your efforts on our big day and for putting in such a long shift, you went above and beyond - hope you got back home ok!! You guys were fantastic and it felt like you were more part of the family rather than providing a service. Your whole style made us feel really relaxed and we knew immediately we were in safe hands, which is impressive as we're both camera shy!! "

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you and appreciation for the incredible pictures you guys shot at our wedding. It is so wonderful to see them and kind of brings into focus moments/memories. Have been looking at them over last 24 hours and wanted to write something back straight away. I am seizing the chance to say a huge debt of gratitude to you both. We are both very camera shy and this is what we feared the most about having a wedding so you both have some skills to get anything half decent from both of us!"

"Wow, just WOW!! Amazing pictures guys. We LOVED seeing the preview, it brought back so many memories of the happy day. Thanks also for your very kind words on the blog, the feeling is mutual as we are so happy to have had you both at the wedding. Everyone who has seen the pictures thinks they are incredible and we totally love your style and the way you’ve captured the emotion of the day.

You both have an amazing talent"

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek is a cut above the rest!! He is extremely talented & very passionate about his work. For our outdoor wedding reception, he captured the most beautiful photos that had a magical quality of light. He took all of the family standard shots in such an efficient way that my husband & I even got a chance to enjoy our cocktail hour! He was not in our face or intrusive during the wedding at all, yet he still got all of the shots. He was so well organized & he always returned my calls or emails very quickly. Jacek loves to photograph & the proof of that is obvious in the stunning photos he takes. He is an artist & was a joy to work with. My husband, my family, and I are so glad that he was our photographer. I could not be happier - I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JACEK!

Mark Capilitan, Sligo, Ireland

Thank you Mark for everything you did for us on the day of the wedding, as well as the engagement shoot and of course the final details including our fabulous album. We absolutely love it. You were so easy going and relaxed on the day and the pictures speak for themselves. Stephanie & Paul
