At the beginning of last week I woke up to an email from the ISPWP stating that the awards had been published. As you can imagine we were pretty thrilled to receive not just one but 5 awards! I am aways utterly honoured to receive these awards as the competition from all over the world is incredibly strong. Just to be an ISPWP member has strict criteria, so to go the next level and win awards is a fantastic accolade. The below text is from the ISPWP website and tells you a little about the organisation.
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.
You can see the awards galleries here, as you can see the standard of the work is incredibly high and we’re really honoured to have received 5 awards for the Winter 2017 competition.
Thank you to our couples for having us at their weddings to capture these images, so a big thanks goes to Ali & Oli, Karen & Howard, Becca & Jonny and Fiona & Paul.
