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.

Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

São tantos detalhes, tanta coisa para resolver antes do casamento e no grande dia nada pode dar errado, daí a importância na escolha do profissional que acompanhará e registrará esse grande momento de nossas vidas. Falar do Fernando é fácil. Grande profissional, dedicado, comprometido e de um olhar único sobre o que tem em volta, as cenas e os detalhes. Ficamos muitos felizes com o resultado do seu trabalho e o quanto abrilhantou desde o ensaio, making of da noiva, cerimônia e a festa do nosso casamento.

Evert Doorn, Bussum, Netherlands

“Evert was such an incredible pleasure to work with for our wedding. As a foreigner getting married to a Dutchman in this country, it wasn’t always easy finding people used to working with English speakers but Evert was so quick in responding to my emails and his English is incredibly fluent! Our day was captured so beautifully from the details and I’m also glad that there were some beautiful shots of our guests.  I was even more pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to have him around during the special 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

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Fotograf magik. Mega zdolny. Przesympatyczny. Aż ma się ochotę robić sesje co tydzień! Widać, że nie kupił aparatu na promocji w Tesco. Miód, cud i orzeszki! Blichtr i splendor. A tak poważnie (bo ta opinia ma się do czegoś nadać): jesteśmy zachwyceni Kubą i Jego zdolnościami. Dziękujemy!

Jeśli ktoś z naszych Znajomych kiedykolwiek będzie szukał Pana Foto to bez wahania Ciebie polecimy. Skrócenie dystansu poprzez przejście „na ty”, omówienie naszych oczekiwań/Twoich możliwości spowodowało, że czuliśmy się przy Tobie swobodnie. Zarówno przed ceremonią, podczas ceremonii i na sesji zdjęciowej. Mieliśmy pewność, że zdjęcia spełnią nasze oczekiwania. Twoje poczucie humoru i komentarze pozwalały na naturalne zachowanie (przecież nawet fotomodelki fotoszopują, więc i na nas znajdziesz sposób) ;). Zdjęcia są przecudowne i oddają w 100% nasze charaktery.

Joanna Carina, Saint Paul, MN United States

Such a wonderful experience! Joanna [of Carina Photographics] is great and so kind. She made both of us feel comfortable in front of the camera for our engagement and wedding photos. We have so many wonderful memories captured in our photos. She creates a great relationship by meeting with you several times before the big day. Awesome experience from start to finish!!! The wall canvas and Heirloom albums are beautiful!
