ISPWP Summer 2016 Photography Contest Award Winning Photo

Having one of your photographs acknowledged as “award worthy” amongst so many incredible entries is something that makes me feel pretty happy. I’m thrilled to have another ISPWP win under my belt with this super sweet moment between Laura and her flower girl right after she gave her a keepsake necklace. There’s so much about this photo I love from the connection between the two girls to the way she clutches her newly treasured gift. It’s moments like these that make me proud I get to call myself a wedding photographer!

Check out all the contest winners here, I’m truly in great company!

What is the ISPWP?

The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers is an organization of the best wedding photographers in the world. It was created by professional photographers to raise the standards of the wedding photography profession.

We are a resource for wedding clients who know they want to hire the best and the brightest for their wedding. When you hire an ISPWP member, you are hiring one of the most respected, professional and talented wedding photographers in the industry.

There are many online directories of wedding photographers. Some of them have hundreds, even thousands of photographers. That sounds great because there are so many to choose from! But most of these directories have little or no criteria for membership, they are simply paid advertising links that may include photographers with zero experience and unknown backgrounds who have simply paid the directory’s advertising fee.

Each and every ISPWP member has passed a rigorous application process and is recognized by their peers to be at the top of their field.

Membership Requirements

Professional photographers of all styles are welcome to apply for membership: Photojournalists, Traditionalists, Neo-Romanticists, Fashion-Inspired, Fine Art Cinematic style, or whatever label you give yourself. However, no matter what your photography style, the ISPWP maintains high standards for membership based on experience, talent, integrity, professionalism and references:

Experience: Members must have photographed a minimum of 50 weddings as the primary in-charge photographer. Weddings shot as a tag-along, second, or backup photographer do not count. This is the minimum experience requirement, many ISPWP members have shot hundreds of weddings.

Talent: Members must submit a website/blog/portfolio for review by a panel of ISPWP members. Online portfolio galleries must demonstrate artistic and technical ability. The portfolio must display a minimum of three galleries of complete weddings. Galleries that only display “selected favorites” from multiple weddings will be rejected.

Professionalism: Members must operate in accordance with the ISPWP Code of Conduct. This protects both the photographer and the client, and provides assurance to the client they are dealing with a professional who takes their business seriously.

References: Members must submit 2 client references, and 2 peer photographer references, or be sponsored by an existing ISPWP member.ISPWP Fall 2015 Photography Contest Award Winning Photo

Sand Harbor Lake Tahoe wedding | Incline Village, NV | Jennifer and Javier

Outdoor enthusiasts to the core, I could not imagine Jenn and Javier saying their vows anywhere else but at their Sand Harbor Lake Tahoe wedding. It was a small and intimate affair that could not have been more perfect. The weather had that hint of fall coolness and the Lake was as beautiful as Jennifer who looked like a goddess on her wedding day, marrying the man who opened up her eyes to a new world and her heart to an unending and deep love. It was truly something special.

It was traditional and yet a celebration all their own with fresh lavender lovingly bundled together by her family, some spicy and downright hugable friends and family from Venezuela, baby cupcakes and pies, and an incredible vegetarian food truck with the tastiest and most unique wedding food I’ve had in a while! It was grand, yet humble and extravagant in the most simple and beautiful way possible.

And we ended in the Lake! Never one to miss a moment to get wet, Javier and his boys honored their tradition of Alpine Lake swimming (regardless of the season). It was so fun to follow them into the water and watch them play around like a bunch of kids. It was a good day that left me so grateful to document another perfect and unique love story. Congratulations Jenn and Javi; the future holds much for you both.
