On ISPWP’s official website they write about the true beauty of being a wedding photographer, and the rigorous demand for talent the job comes with. “You have to get it right the first time, every time. You have to be a master of the craft and know your gear so well that you can make adjustments on the fly, without thinking or hesitating. And you have to do it for 8, 10, or 12 hours in close quarters with clients who have put their trust in you to get it right.”
