Something doesn’t sound right, 600?  How many is she giving you?  How long was the session?  Sounds like shotgun photography to me.

600 photo’s in 2 hours is a picture taken about every 10 seconds.  In 2 hours I would think you would have time for around 15-20 unique poses / settings, walking around a location, so it sounds like you will be getting a ton of shots that are basically the same.

As a photographer I cull down my raw footage and only show my clients the best of the bunch.  I found that giving a client everything confuses them and makes it harder to decide what they like or want, esp if most of the images were “similar.”  I guess every photographer does things differently.

I would also question if these image were retouched?  Hard to believe the photographer would retouch 600 images.

well we got over 800 for our 2 hour epic session… and they turned out great so i think 600 is completely reasonable…. anyways id rather pick the ones I like best out of the bunch… rather than have the photog pick them for me and only give me 20.

User is right — Extensive overshooting certainly is the mark of an amateur. 600 is kind of crazy. 50 – 60 proofs TOPS, many will give you 20 – 30.

oh so the photo you posted isn’t a teaser from the photographer?

Out of 1000 pictures I am sure you will find some you like.  I don’t  know any professional though that allow other photographers or even family members to take images over their shoulder.  The exclusive photographer clause is a contract standard.

Seems like you got a good deal, you did pretty good if she is in fact going to retouch all of the images.  Honestly, I don’t see how she will stay in business long offering that type of package.
