    We got thousands. Photographer gave us every shot. He separated out the good ones, but we still had 2-3000 good ones, and maybe 7-8000 “bad” or “repeat” ones.

    We had over 800 edited photos after 8 hours of shooting. I’m sure there we hundreds more but our photographer culled all the bad/repeated ones!

    Need more info…

    How long will you have him / them for is the first Question.

    Mr TTR & I Eloped to a Destination Wedding, so we only had the Photographer at the Ceremony (10 Minutes) and another 20 or so minutes after.

    So in 30 Minutes, we ended up with just under 50 Photos.

    I think that would be fairly average… say 75 to 100 pics an hour.

    Hope this helps,

    PS… I DIDN’T VOTE yet cause as I say, need more info first.

    450 for 11 hours and totally happy with that number.

    If we had been given more, I’d be overwhelmed and wouldn’t know what to do with all of them.

    We had our photographer for about 5 hours and he gave us somewhere around 350-500 pictures.
    He sent all of our photos to me on a disc (high resolution and edited).

    I would check to see if your contract mentions this…what other people got is totally irrelevant unless they are using the same photographer. 😀

    @HappinessIsInDaisies:  This depends ENTIRELY on how many shooters, how many photographers, and the photographer’s business model. Some shoot and burn photographers give you ever shot they took and others edit them down to the best selection of the day. On average though you should expect between 50-70 images per hour of coverage per photographer.

    Everyone is different, but most professionals hand over 50-100 edited photos per hour of service.
