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.

人和人之间的缘分就是那么奇妙,在好姐妹的婚礼上偶遇阿军,一天的相处后被他敬业的精神深深感动,又被他风趣幽默的性格所感染,当时就说过,自己的婚礼也要请他当摄影师的~所幸军哥刚好有档期,事实证明我的选择是非常正确的!军哥无论是婚礼前,婚礼当天还是婚礼后都非常用心,堪称业界良心!感谢军哥让我的婚礼不留遗憾。一年过去了,翻开军哥给我们拍摄的照片,还是满满的感动,满满的甜蜜。衷心祝福军哥,也祝愿天下有情人终成眷属^_^

“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!”

An artist ! Volodomyr has talent to take a beautiful photos but his best advantage is to understand what we like. He ask us lot of questions, discussed with us and feel us. As big professional, he knows exactly what he wants, where and how. Punctual and invisible, his photos are stylish, design, in details with taste. He made us in certain spirit, without any stress, even in good mood! More than a good photographer, he is also a good person. Thank you Volodomyr, I wish you to reach your goal, we know than you can do it.

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!

Jacek Dolata, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

Jacek Dolata was the photographer we choose on our NY wedding because of his alternative , modern and photo realistic style. He captured our special day perfectly. Jacek is very well organized and has knowledge of how to create special effects using lighting, camera angles and different lenses and techniques. It is really inspiring the way he works to take high quality photos. We could tell that he enjoyed his job and he had great ideas for shots. Jacek captured tons of footage and covered everyone on our day. We are so glad we choose him. Our pictures came out great. We couldn’t be more happy. I would highly recommend Jacek Dolata to any bride and groom for. He is very passionate about what he does.
