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
Fernando Longen, Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil

Conhecemos o trabalho do Fernando em 2012, quando ele fotografou o casamento da minha cunhada. No inicio optamos pelo seu trabalho devido as recomendações que ela nos fez e pelas maravilhosas fotos que ele registrou no casamento dela, mas depois do nossa primeira conversa com ele os motivos por termos escolhido ele como nosso fotografo só aumentaram!! Além de ser muito comprometido com o seu trabalho, o Fernando é um cara super bacana, divertido e criativo! No nosso ensaio pré casamento, além de nos dar várias idéias e topar nossas idéias, ele nos deixou super a vontade em frente as câmeras, nos fez curtir demais esse dia e as fotos, claro, ficaram lindas, naturais e com a nossa cara! No dia do casamento, desde o making of, estava ele lá, me tranquilizando, me fazendo rir e claro, registrando lindas fotos. Durante nossa festa foi super atencioso com todos os nossos convidados, estava presente em todos os momentos, em todos os ângulos! Nós aproveitamos muito a nossa festa, e tenho a impressão que todos os lados que olhava lá estava o Fernando e seu flash, no meio da pista, registrando tudo!! E as fotos desse dia tão especial em nossas vidas são maravilhosas, demonstram exatamente todos os sentimentos daqueles momentos, emocionam demais! E além de tudo isso, ele ainda entende nossa ansiedade pós-casamento, entregou as fotos muito rápido e com um material de excelente qualidade.

Daniel Meyer, Gauteng, South Africa

Now I sit and look back on the memories captured on beautiful photographs, tears starts forming as I realize Daniel and Marnitz captured my dream. From the first meeting we had up on till the last moments, I had no regrets in trusting L’Afrique photography with my dream day.
You took the long drive to Timamoon Hazyview, and captured our engagement shoot with no hassles and created a perfect memory. From there on it were all smiles with the Boudoir shoot where I felt so comfortable, art captured in photos.
The BIG day arrived, where again you travelled with no hassles to Tolderia Resort Lothair, even though I was stressed you managed to get the perfect smile out of me for the most beautiful photos. You captured all the details, from the little hide away tears to the big smiles. You made our guests feel so comfortable and not once where you in anyone’s way.
With every detail, email, sms and phone call you truly made our journey hassle free.
Now I sit and look back on the memories captured and decide that this won’t be the last memories L’Afrique Photography captures for us. There will be many more memories to create.

THANK YOU DANIEL AND MARNITZ FOR MAKING OUR HEARTS SMILE

Rinke Heederik, Soest, Netherlands

De details, belichting, spontaniteit en creativiteit hebben gezorgd voor prachtige fotografie! Onopvallend op de dag, maar geeft de juiste tips op het moment dat dit nodig is. Het album is een helder en mooi resultaat die de sfeer van de dag goed laat zien.  - Thomas & Sanne

Kuba Kepinski, Poland

Kuba w cudowny sposób uchwycił emocje, które towarzyszyły nam i naszym gościom podczas ślubu i wesela. Oglądając przesłane od niego zdjęcie, kilka razy zakręciła nam się łezka w oku, a kilka razy wybuchnęliśmy głośnym śmiechem - tak rewelacyjne są ujęcia, które Kuba złapał.
W dniu ślubu i podczas sesji plenerowej, Kuba wykazał się nie tylko pełnym profesjonalizmem, ale także pozytywnym podejściem (co w stresujących momentach może być wyjątkowo przydatne) oraz wyrozumiałością dla młodej pary. Kontakt z nim był zawsze łatwy i przyjemny, i bardzo doceniliśmy to, że nie raz poszedł nam na rękę.
Jeśli mielibyśmy wyprawić wesele, to pewnie jest kilka elementów, które byśmy zmienili, jednak wybór fotografa był jedynym właściwym i każdemu z czystym sumieniem moglibyśmy Kubę polecić!

Zibi Kuropatwinski, Salisbury, Wiltshire United Kingdom

Claudia & Daniel

Zibi is the wedding photographer you can dream of ! He joined us on our special day with his relaxed and lovely presence, really appreciated how he captured all those special moments and finally made us the most precious gift: so many wonderful pictures, one more touching than the other..

So happy, fate led us to Zibi – thanks a lot ! Best wishes from Switzerland

Odysseas Lekkas, Athens, Greece

As Tennessee Williams once said: “Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.”

Sandy & Odysseas of SoVisual Photography caught and framed with their timeless vision many moments like these in our wedding. Their photographs became memories and those memories turned into life for us (recalling your wedding day as a “happy blur”, there’s a reason why this is such a cliché).

Sandy & Odysseas are amazing professionals with a positive vibe such as the people you need by your side on a special day like this.

We are extremely thankful for their existence on our wedding!

Hugs & kisses!

Ludvík Daněk, Brno, Czech Republic
