I’m having a photographer for 8 hours on my wedding day–how many photos did you receive on your wedding day? I was hoping to have all of the raw photos so i could go through and pick which ones i like or dont like. Im just scared of paying thousands of dollars and onlly getting 200 out of a thousand photos taken, that the photographer picked. anyway i can bring this up with him?

I guess it depends on your wedding contract
I got 700 something edited pictures in two cd’s (prep, details, first look, portraits, ceremony and reception). we paid almost $1900 for our photogs and they were amazing

We got 1100, all edited. Our photographer was with us for just about 10 hours. She happened to be a friend of ours who is a professional photographer so I’m pretty sure she gave us a hell of a deal. We paid less than $1000.

For 8 hours we got 4000 something. Two photographers but one took 3000 and the other about another 1000(she is in training). Our photographer is a beast! Highly rated, best of the Knot, etc, etc. Its been 10 months and we still haven’t gone through them all. Oops.

@MrsBtoBe14: No professional photographer is going to hand you over the RAW files so you can pick and choose which ones you want to edit. And even if they did – trust me on this one, you would not want to have to go through that many photos. Most of the photographers I know, myself included, deliver 50-100 images on average, per hour of service.

our photographer will be with us for 12 hours and has promised us 1000 edited images.

@MrsBtoBe14: I doubt you’re going to get unedited pics.
We got just over a thousand pics but half were color and half were black and white so really 500 pics.

Our photographer told us to expect 50-75 edited images per 1 hour of shooting.
I don’t think your expectation of all raw images is appropriate. The protographer should not be expected to release his/her work in anything less than its best form. Imagine if a customer were to post all of the bad shots (that the photographer would usually edit until they were good and/or ditch completely) online and say “look how bad this photographer is!”

Like Continuum said, the average is 50-100 per active hour of shooting.

Sounds good, everyone. I just hope we dont have a bunch of black and white ones..

I got 750, but I don’t think I got everything she took. My guess is she cut out any where people were blinking or something, because I got none of those.

You should ask your photographer what they usually do since the norm for other photographers isn’t necessarily going to be what yours does. Also, if you dont want tons of black and white, why not just bring up that concern with who you have hired?
