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.

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process! He was my sister's photographer at her wedding and he was fantastic so when my husband and I got engaged we asked her for his information. Jacek responded within hours of us emailing every single time. He was so flexible about everything. He and his assistant, Conrad, made us feel so comfortable while doing pictures and got genuine laughs out of us with their hysterical comments. He even gave me his jacket because it was cold and snowing on our wedding day! Additionally the pictures are absolutely amazing and we cannot wait to order photos and make a photo book. From black and white to creative to romantic pictures, he does it all. Also, just one week after our wedding Jacek had put up albums on his website so we could see it all again. We could not have imagined a better photographer and are so thrilled we chose him. We are already trying to figure out the next time we can utilize his services again! If you live in the Connecticut, Massachusetts, or New York area there is no better, more wonderful, more responsive photographer you could ask for. He is very reasonably priced and worth every penny.

Kebikov Evgeniy, Minsk, Belarus

Dima & Alina

Yevgeniy is a wonderful photographer, admirable and funny person. There was not any self-consciousness during the shooting. Zhenya was successfully joined in our friendly atmosphere of our wedding day. I think it is too important because newlyweds' ease is a result of natural and vivid shots.

He makes his work competently because of knowing a great deal of the job. He knows how to work with both daylight and candlelight. He has a sense of composition and enthusiasm for good shots. He can't handle pictures with unnatural colors and looseness of important details. In short - professional.

And what is more important, he does his work with a passion. He shots without a break, when he just forgot to have a dinner that we offered to him. He tries new photo devices with an enthusiasm and tries to make new experimental shots. I am sure that now he is more professional, because of his  perfectionism (our wedding day was 13.08.2016).

I also advice to newlyeds to take part in ghe photo shoot. Inform your preferences or show some examples from the Internet. Zhenia's professionalism will let you fulfill everything you want. And inform him if you have an idea to make a particular shot. Once more thank you!

Faisal Mohamed, maldives

In late November 2017, we got married in the Maldives on Mirihi Island. We hired Phaisal to be our wedding photographer and videographer. He did an amazing job with our photos and videos. We think some the photos are simply brilliant and speak for themselves. On the day he was attentive and flexible with our scheduling. He worked really well with the other staff on the island to get us the best shots. It was also quite warm on the island. He has a keen eye for details and we look really natural in the photos. The turnaround for the photos and the video was quick. He truly captured our special moment. We cannot thank him enough and recommend that you hire him to capture your special moments in the Maldives.

Marcos Valdés, Querétaro, Mexico

Marcos is not only an amazing photographer, but an amazing human being. His work and attention to detail are exemplary. His professionalism is outstanding. However above all these things, it is his character as a person that is truly remarkable. I feel blessed and honored to have had Marcos be our photographer on our big day. Highly recommend!

Jason Parsons, Cardiff, United Kingdom

"Jason was the photographer at me and my wife's wedding back in June. He conducted himself in an incredibly Professional manner and the resulting photos were nothing short of stunning. Beautiful natural photos which captured every perfect moment of the day. He wasn't imposing on the wedding at all and I was really impressed with the natural style of the photos. He was also prompt with the delivery of the photos following the wedding. If you like natural style photo with an artistic professional flare, I would definitely recommend him. Cheers Jason!"

Robert and Yulia

Words cannot describe how nervous and stressful my bride and myself was to the build up of our wedding, with lots to plan and execute, it was a lot of work-especially with multiple languages and cultures to consider. So we was replying on a good, fresh, professional photographer and film crew to work with. I thought with everything going on they wasn't up to the task, but i was wrong, so wrong. Not only was there work, such interpretational it captured the beauty and emotion in everything, without showing the nerves.
  They have brilliant and fun ideas. I knew, if i left them to there own devices, the work would not only be done, but done to the highest standard, and it was. They captured all our emotions, feelings and joy and we will only have this to Cherish for the rest of our lives. There costs do not reflect there work at all, they are cheaper than other competitors, and far supplier, i couldn't believe it when i first saw their work, but im a believer now. There work was so good, some of our guests was asking them for contact details. Anyway, im sure by now your reading this you get my point. I just want to thank you for everything, you made me, my wife and our families extremely happy, we love your work, and look forward in the future to see you again, and use your services... who knows maybe for a christening
