The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers

I am thrilled to announce that I have recently been accepted as a member of the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP)!!!

All ISPWP members have passed a rigorous application process and are recognized by their peers to be at the top of their field. The number of members in the UK is limited to 40 and the ISPWP insists that only the best wedding photographers in the United Kingdom qualify.

I am very proud to have passed their demanding selection process, it is a great privilege to have been accepted to join the fold of such an elite group of photographers and I couldn’t be happier.

In their own words:


“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.”

ISPWP LogoThank you for all of your lovely comments, I love getting feedback so keep it coming!
