I feel lucky to have found Mal and Joe for our wedding photos. The pictures came out better than I could have imagined. Talking to wedding photographers was my least favorite part about planning our wedding. Many photographers have requirements or packages that just didn't seem necessary to us. When I reached out to The Wise Image it changed the game. Mal and Joe were responsive, understanding, and easy to work with. I knew when I met them that they were the perfect pair to photograph our wedding. We didn't want engagement photos and they didn't make us feel bad about that (like many other photographers did). They simply worked with us on a package that worked best for us and we were very appreciative of that.

Prior to wedding day...
Quick response time on questions etc.
They put timeline together that was understandable and easy to follow
Let us know of any permits required in advanced

Our wedding day...
They arrived on time, they were excited to be there, and they started taking pictures immediately
It was 28 degrees on our wedding day with a windchill so it felt like 18 degrees. If they were affected by the cold temps we would never know. They were so professional and they did a great job of encouraging us to pose for pictures, smile, be happy and ignore the cold. As pictures outside were wrapping up they paid for an uber to our venue so we could warm up instead of bearing the temps to walk to few blocks to the venue

The pictures...
Simply amazing
Creative, perfect lighting, great poses both outside and inside the venue
We only had 1 location that we wanted to take photos, they took us to a few more that ended up being perfect backdrops for our photos

They are accurately priced based on their professionalism, ease to work with and quality and quantity of photos.

I would highly recommend Mal and Joe without question. I hope to use them in the future when our family grows. Thank you!

Mal and Joey are the best in the business!

From the first meeting we had with them last year, we knew that they were the first and only choice to be our wedding photographers. They made everything so easy for us, and we truly appreciate how attentive they were to every detail throughout the (very long, but thanks to you, very excellent) day and night. We can't wait to see the finished product, as we know that they will be just as beautiful as our engagement photos. We've both been in other weddings before and have had the misfortune of working with overly pushy/downright unfriendly photographers, and they are the polar opposite of that. Unless folks were looking for them, I don't think they'd even know they were there at times. They both showed up early at the hotel on the day of our wedding and came to my bridal suite to start taking pictures of us getting ready. They completely stayed out of the way, but you still knew they were there getting the best shots of everyone. While we were all getting ready, they took pictures of my wedding dress, my shoes, all of the flowers and our rings. When they were done with that, Joey went down with my husband and the groomsmen and Mal stayed with us. It's so great having two photographers because they are able to take pictures of EVERYTHING and literally be in two places at once. They make the best team!

You two really are the best, and we will happily pimp you out to anyone who ever asks for a recommendation. It's cliche, but one million thank you's wouldn't adequately express our appreciation for everything you've done.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Mal & Joey are simply the best!! Not only are their photos absolutely stunning, they are so easy to work with! They have an amazing eye & are truly artists in their work! My husband & I got married on one of the coldest days in Philly last January (temp was in the negative) & it snowed the night prior. We also live in Fairmount and wanted to shoot around the museum since it is one of our favorite areas. Mal & Joey were troopers & so adventurous in the cold! They truly captured our love for each other and captured all of the "in between" moments that we cherished. The quality of their photos are stunning! I am a tough critic when it comes to photos, but trust me, choosing The Wise Image will be the best decision you ever make for your day! It took us forever to narrow our photos down for our book since we had so many options! We have received endless amounts of compliments on our wedding photos!

We also had the pleasure to work with the two of them for our engagement photos and my sister and brother in law chose Mal & Joey for their newborn baby photos. I recommend 1000%! I can not wait to use them again! We love you Mal & Joey! THANK YOU!!!

I'm not sure where to begin!! Mal & Joey were both absolutely amazing at my daughter's wedding in December!! From the moment they arrived on Saturday morning until midnight (15 hours later!!), their professionalism & expertise were evident to me. Whenever any of us were getting friends or family together for a picture at the venue, one of them appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, and set up the perfect picture. I was also very impressed with their ability to personalize this experience for my daughter & son-in-law. Although they photograph MANY weddings every year, they were able to make us feel as though Kayleigh & Steve's wedding photos were being customized just for them. Their love for their profession is quite evident!! I can't thank them enough for an amazing experience!!!

Joey and Mal are fantastic to work with! My (now) husband Mike and I had never really been the center of attention, nor displayed our affection publically. Joey and Mal made us feel perfectly comfortable and even joked with us along the way. They both bring their own unique perspective and aren't afraid to push the other artistically. We couldn't be happier working with them, and hope to have to opportunity to work with them again! Kevin & Mike McShea

Mal & Joey are THE BEST you can find as photographers. We seriously could not have asked for 2 better people to capture our engagement/wedding! Mal & Joey are so easy to work with; we instantly felt like we had known them forever from our first encounter and it only grew with time. They are extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire wedding process and produce high quality work. We had such a blast working with them and are very sad we wont be communicating as often now that the wedding is over. I cannot say enough about The Wise Image and Mal & Joey! You are missing out if you dont hire them for any photography needs!!! They have made forever customers in us! THANK YOU SO MUCH MAL & JOEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We love you guys!!!!!!!! -Mandy&Joe

Working with Mal and Joey for both our engagement shoot and wedding day was everything we wanted and more! They both went above and beyond anytime we asked for anything and were open to what we envisioned for our photos. Mal even helped curl my hair when it was falling out on the big day! We received our photos for both shoots in super fast turn around times and any questions we had, they responded within a day or two. We were beyond pleased with working with The Wise Image and would 100% recommend them to everyone!

When we first met with Mal and Joey it felt like we were sitting with long time friends. I knew as soon as I got in the car that's who I wanted. Everything was perfect from the engagement session, to any communication, to the day of the wedding. Mal and 0ne of her photographers, Jess, shot our wedding, and again, it felt like I had hired a really good friend. Not only are my pictures amazing (I love every single one of them), but Mal kept checking in on me throughout the day, just to make sure I was good. They were able to capture the ridiculousness of my bridal party and the elegance of the day that I was hoping for. I am very thankful for everything they have done! You will not find a better photographer than the Wise Image!

Joey and Mal did an amazing job with both our engagement and wedding photos. They remained positive and creative when there was a hurricane on our wedding day down the shore. The photos came out beautiful despite the weather, and when the sun finally came out later in the evening, they adapted and offered to take more photos of us outside! Highly recommend 🙂

The Wise Image is absolutely amazing! They are so knowledgeable about the wedding process, how to position people, where to stand for pictures, and what pictures to take. There was no need for me to create a must take list of photos because they were so involved they handled it all and got every picture I could have ever imaged. They were so sweet and accommodating and truly made my wedding unforgettable with the most beautiful pictures ever! They also took our engagement photos with our children and were amazing. They are fun to deal with, down to earth and so professional. I could have never asked for better photographers. The pictures are something I will truly value forever and it's all because the Wise Image is fantastic! I highly recommend!

I cannot say enough good things about Mal and Joey!! We booked them for our engagement shoot and wedding and it was the best decision of all our planning. They each have a little bit of a unique style (Joey is a little more edgy and artsy and Mal is beautiful, soft and traditional) which created the most perfect mix of photos. They are both so sweet, funny and joy to work with. It's always a little scary doing a "photo shoot" because you don't know what to expect but they were so relaxed and helpful the whole time (including wedding day when things were a little crazy) they really helped keep us cool.
I can't thank them enough for the amazing pictures they gave us that we will absolutely cherish the rest of our lives. They're seriously THE BEST!!
