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.

Testimonials
Jeannine Pohl, 676 Smith Ave S St. Paul, MN 55107

"Booking Jeannine as our photographer was perhaps one of the best wedding decisions my (now) husband and I made. It was apparent from the beginning (the introductory consultation) that Jeannine exceeded all expectations. Initially, I was drawn to Jeannine because of her creativity and her vision. The photos that I had seen were unparalleled and inspiring. I am a bit unconventional myself, and her fresh innovative twist on photography lent itself well to the vision I had for my big day. In fact, I could not have been more accurate, the photos exceeded all expectations and she is truly a visionary!

All that being said, what made me inevitably book Jeannine went far beyond her innovative eye; it was her charm, interpersonal skills, genuine passion for weddings/photography, etc. I have had numerous friends complain about their wedding photographers because of their lack of organization, their low quality photos, or their anxiety-provoking demeanor; however these things DO NOT characterize Jeannine in the least. In fact (and I kid you not), all of these friends have approached me since my wedding to comment on how lovely, creative, and organized Jeannine was (and this was before ever seeing any proofs)! Furthermore, many of these friends have now asked for Jeannine’s contact information for potential engagement/wedding photos. Now if that is not an endorsement, I do not know what is!

In sum, Jeannine’s work is some of the best I have ever seen and I believe this is a result of her uncanny ability to form genuine and meaningful relationships with her clients, her one-of-a-kind approach to the arts and photography, and her commitment to making your wedding day the absolute best it can be. I strongly encourage anyone looking for a wedding photographer to check out Jeannine, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!"

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

Rinke is ontzettend enthousiast en goed in fotograferen. Hij heeft al eerder op de bruiloft van mijn broer foto's gemaakt.
Hij is heel geïnteresseerd en doet moeite om je te leren kennen. De fotoshoot was -ondanks de regen- heel leuk. Wij voelden ons op ons gemak en de foto's zijn heel mooi geworden.
Rinke, bedankt! - Martin & Caroline

Danilo Muratore, Calabria, italy

We were looking for a different style from the classic services, it was dynamic and that too was not dependent upon the time of day. Danilo, with his professionalism and discretion, met our every request or expectation. It came out a beautiful album, with many "stolen" shots wisely in the day. Danilo will allow you to spend your days having fun with your guests, in your own time and your desires. I will choose it again for our silver wedding anniversary.

Ali Nishan, Local Male, Maldives

We would like to thank him again for his fantastic work. If you want to have the best photos that everybody gets admire then you should do yourself a favor and find Nishan.

Aladdin Qattouri, Amman, Jordan

Serine and Tarek's had their wedding photo-shoot session in a magical place at the lowest point on earth, the Deadsea. It was one of the hottest days of the year, she had to bare a wedding gown and move and dance in it and had to survive in a tuxedo and a bow tie. they both were agitated, I tried to sooth them down and take away the agitation and the result was this, a reflection of the beautiful couple happily and madly in love and showing everyone including them how perfect they are for each other.

James Sturcke, Logro√Īo, Spain

“Many thanks for everything! Your work during the wedding was fantastic. Many people asked me: ‘Who’s the fun photographer?’ or ‘is he a family friend?’… Which shows that not only did you take photos but you know how to win over the people. It was the right decision to go with you. Many thanks again for making everything so easy.” María, Zaragoza.
