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.

Jacek photographed our wedding in 2012 and it was a true pleasure working with him. He is very friendly, has a good sense of humor, but most importantly he takes really amazing shots. He managed to capture the best moments of the day in a very creative manner. The shots are very natural and he truly captures the atmosphere of the day. We were very happy with the photos he delivered and on top of that he delivered them in a timely fashion. We have also worked with Jacek for other family events and were just as happy. I would highly recommend working with Jacek!
Susanna Antichi is fantastic! We hired Susanna for our wedding and we have no regrets! At our first meeting (via skype), she was gracious enough to help us draft an early wedding day schedule and talked about the logistics of how the day would run in regards to the photography. She definitely helped calm our nerves over worries about the big day. During the meeting in Mexico ( the day before the weeding and trust me it was a very stressful day), she also showed samples of her previous work as well as answered all our discerning questions. She offered us exceptional value and she was very responsive in our subsequent communication and meetings. I was skeptical when Susanna told us that she was confident that she would be able to capture all our moments without any additional help, but she was right! On our wedding day, Susanna comprehensively captured all our candid and emotion filled expressions of us and our family and friends! We were so impressed on how she was able to capture such raw emotions of joy, love and even sadness! She stayed with us until the end!!! It seemed like she was also in two places at once! Susanna was also excellent at taking group photo shots. She was very professional, arranging people around and giving people direction to produce the best possible shot. The finished photos were personally delivered on-time. Susanna created the most amazing, classic photo albums as well as the soft copies on USB (along with a slideshow with music from our wedding!). She send us couple presents, such as calendar for 2016 and mini-albums. It was so kind of her…I just can’t say thank you enough for everything that she has done for us All in all, Susanna is passionate about her work. It felt as if Susanna was family at our wedding and it seemed like she was truly enjoying being a part of it. She was friendly and accommodating and I would recommend her to anyone without a doubt!
tolle Arbeit! Bin echt total hin und weg von den tollen Bildern.

How can we express what an important and amazing part of our wedding day that Jeannine played. The photos are the one thing you cannot skimp on. These are your memories, and Jeannine did just a beautiful job with ours.
"Jeannine traveled from the Twin Cities up to Duluth to shoot for a day at the Glensheen Mansion for us. Everything she did was perfect, from the shot selection, to her efficiency, to her fun, easy nature. She was an absolute joy to work with.
Jeannine even had a short slideshow of the early photos she had taken playing on a monitor at the bar after dinner, which was an amazing addition.
Within a few days of the wedding, we had a "sneak peak" available on her website, and within a week or two of that we had our digital prints.
Fast, friendly, and amazing. We could not recommend her more strongly.
If you are going to be getting married in Minnesota, there's no one better."

“My husband and I needed an experienced outdoor wedding photographer for our Kenya Safari Wedding. We are so glad to have found Nishan. We love his work because its very natural yet artistic. He captured all the beautiful memories of our safari trip with friends and family as well as the day of the wedding. We also did a separate wedding photo shoot in the wild which was quite challenging since it was in an unfamiliar setting and animals in the wild are very unpredictable. The photos turned out to be wonderful nonetheless. Nishan also put together an awesome digital photo book for us that we proudly shared with everyone. Overall we were very pleased and have recommended Nishan to our friends. In fact, a good friend of ours saw our wedding photos and then asked Nishan to be a second photographer for their Bali wedding even though they’ve already hired one locally. They told me later that they were a lot happier with Nishan’s work.
Keep up the great work Nishan!”
“Queremos darte las gracias por haber capturado el día más feliz de nuestras vidas con unas imágenes tan diferentes y originales y así darnos una forma de volver a vivirlo cada que queremos y un extraordinario recuerdo para siempre.
Supiste estar en los momentos más importantes sin que tuviéramos que decirte nada y supiste capturar la alegría y el amor que nos acompañó esa noche y que volvemos a vivir cada que vemos una imagen de ese día.
Que Dios te bendiga” – Melisa y Juan
"We just went through the pictures and we are absolutely thrilled! You have an amazing eye - the pictures are aesthetically beautiful, interesting and really captured the event perfectly. I knew you were good, and I knew my choice was good - but now I think my choice was positively inspired. There are literally too many good pictures: we don't know which ones to get prints of! Thank you so much for the incredible craftsmanship; you're a real artist."
Michelle and Trent were AMAZING! They were extremely professional and friendly, and they made us feel so comfortable having our photos taken. Michelle and Trent were with us all day taking photos and they turned out absolutely incredible. We loved having two photographers on our... Read More wedding day because they were able to capture the same situation/photo from different angles. We had a blast with Michelle and Trent; they were constantly making us laugh and it really felt like they cared about our wedding day as much as we did. We had many compliments from our wedding party and other guests on the quality of photos and professionalism from Michelle and Trent. Their photos are truly unmatched, and we believe we could not have chosen a better pair to photograph our wedding. We would highly recommend their services!!
James was honestly the best vendor we worked with throughout the entire wedding. He showed up early, stayed late, and took the most incrediable pictures. His pictures were so creative and beautiful. He captured moments of my wedding that I didn't even see! I was blown away when we received our photos back. He is worth every penny!!
