Hi,

I think there’s no normal number. The number you are able to give them.

When I shoot a wedding I take aproximately 1500 photos, after erasing those I think there are not good or double shoot whiwh are uninteresting, etc etc I have around 800 photos.

So I always tell to brides and grooms that I give the maximum best photos as possible but I can’t give them a number cause it depends of the wedding, the situation etc. And if they absolutely want a number I tell us 500 minimum cause I’ve never done a wedding under 500 photos.

I personally believe {and was formally educated} that a photographer is only as good as their worst image.  I know there are a few posts here on the bee under how many photos. Which you can search for.

In all my years as a wedding photographer I come to learn that will my clients, more isn’t always better.  It becomes very overwhelming to go through so many images and don’t get me started on trying to pick out their favs for albums and such.  My FH and I shoot about 3000 images per wedding and we try and get that as close to 600 as possible.  This seems to be a magic number for our studio with all being good quality images. It also makes the editing process more manageable and we can get images to our clients faster.  We have a two week turn around policy but we also both do this full time. That said, every studio is different and it’s up to you to decide what works for you.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
