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.

Vladimir Liñán, Cancun, Mexico

 Vladimir and his assistant did an outstanding job as our wedding photographers. We initially chose him because we got the impression that he really cared a lot about his job and would be very committed to the task. And sure enough, working with him was a great experience all around.
After our initial phone conversation, we met in person at the wedding location in Tulum to discuss the plans for the day. We could already tell he had an artist’s eye and clear idea of what to do. On the wedding day, Vladimir and his partner came to the hotel early and took beautiful pictures of the us and out guests getting ready. Later at the reception, they captured every moment perfectly. They generally kept to the background – which was of course very welcome – and seemed to always be at the right place at the right time. Even late at night during the party, they produced beautiful pictures of the dancing and people enjoying themselves.
We were especially impressed with Vladimir’s flexibility and his speed. He was willing to accommodate a number of special requests – such as a few sample pictures just days after the event – and delivered the remaining pictures very quickly.
Beyond his professionalism, Vladimir is a very warm and great person to be around. We could not recommend him more!

L’Afrique Photography – The “Dream Team”,


While we were planning our wedding, we followed the usual wedding planning process of countless meetings and google searches trying to find the perfect photographer. When we came across Daniel and L’Afrique Photography, we knew that we had found exactly what we were looking for…


During our first meeting with Daniel, we decided there an then that we no longer needed to continue our search! Daniel was extremely professional and knowledgeable and gave us the feeling that we had nothing to worry about if we left our wedding photography in his very capable hands. Daniel was very open to listening to our own ideas and he was able to put forward additional ideas that worked hand in hand with what we required.


Seeing a portfolio is great…. But one always worries about what the final product of your own wedding will look like…. Well, we were able to see our own portfolio before our wedding day… the “engagement shoot”. The engagement shoot gave us the opportunity to work with Daniel before the big day and it helped ease our nerves in front of the camera. Daniel gave us some very helpful tips around how we should pose and stay relaxed and just enjoy each other’s company. When we got to see our engagement shoot pictures, we were blown away!!! They were beautiful and better than we ever expected! This definitely helped to ease the nerves around what to expect on our big day.


On the big day, L’Afriques professionalism was clear to see. Daniel an Marnitz were on time and ready for action. Even with the stress on the big day, we were made to feel super comfortable and relaxed! We were not rushed and we weren’t forced into smiling and posing the whole day. The photos were taken in a relaxed, natural environment and the outcome of the photos speak for themselves!


Every important aspect was captured beautifully and we couldn’t be happier!! The final packaging of our albums was also incredible!!! L’Afrique…. We can’t thank you enough for making sure our memories of our wedding day were captured in the most beautiful way possible!!! We can’t wait to work with you again in the near future… perhaps for our first family shoot!

Adamo Morgese, Amalfi Coast, Italy

What can I say about Adamo!!! Fabulous! Belissiomo!


There are no words to truly describe how fantastic he is.


My husband and I got married May 10 in Tuscany! My husband found him on the internet and as soon as we looked at his pictures we knew he would be our photographer! He responds so quickly to your emails and gives you the best advice.


He helped us in every way... even helped us choose the location and recommended a wonderful B&B, La Locanda deli Artisti, that was amazing for our stay in Chianciano, Italy.


He drove to meet us in Chianciano the day before our wedding and took the time to drive around with us and pick out perfect spots for our pictures and for the ceremony!


Adamo takes time with you and makes you feel so comfortable (I am shy) in front of the camera. He is a genius and our pictures look amazing! We could not have been happier and just want to thank Adamo for the perfect day! ;)

Hsiao Wei Lin, Taipei, Taiwan

We strongly recommend handsome photographer ~ Siaowei

His humor makes us the couple will not be so nervous

His field of expertise combined with light

Taken out of the picture so we feel very natural

Although he has been busy all day

He came to help us take pictures from Miaoli

But he is still very serious photographed every part of our picture

Absolutely not sloppy

Let us stay with the most beautiful memories

Andreas Pollok, Heidelberg, Germany

Thank you so much for the wonderful pictures. You made our celebration so much more fun and festive!
One of our friends who passed out during the reception actually said those photos refreshed her memory because they are so story telling. Those pictures are not just artistic, but they talk. It’s truly the captures of the best moments. We have no regret of this event, because you made this gathering so much more meaningful and beautiful. Everyone is stunned with your pictures! 

I would like to share this quote from my friend who was not able to attend the wedding but saw the slideshow

“Now, I have to tell you how much I thoroughly enjoyed viewing your wedding video!! I even felt at one point that I would cry because YOU and everyone and everything was so superbly beautiful!!! the overall video was so wonderfully crafted; it was a delight to watch. ”

My wedding was not magical. But you, Andreas, made it magical!
Thank you! We miss you! big kiss from everyone!
