    I got over a thousand images back from my wedding BUT we had two photographers for about nine hours and we had a ton of reception details. Honestly if they are just covering the ceremony then 200 would be plenty and the price seems about right to me unless they are not very good.

    I don’t know how many photos were taken at our wedding, I can only tell you what I received. For 7 hours of time, we received ~760 photos. We had 68 guests at the wedding. If you receive 200 really excellent photos, that’s not such a bad thing, it all kinda hinges on the quality of the photographer.

    Try looking around a bit to see if you can find a photographer with packages that better fit what you’d like.

    Hmm… that’s a tough one. Our photographer sent us over 1000 photos, edited. I have 350 as favorites (but they’re all awesome, I just needed to make it more managable for albums and stuff). We asked about the other photos taken, and I guess the ones that weren’t deleted totaled 25 gigabytes… and they’re sending them all to us, because we asked.

    We had 60 guests and a five hour package.

    I would definitely want at least the 200 photos because, as you said, you can’t get this day back. That said, that is pretty pricey for just 200 photos, in my opinion.

    That is a bit rediculous. We only got about 300 from ours and I thought that was crazy low!

    4,000 photos…and we got every single one of them on a disc.

    i would be very concerned with that few photos… a lot of moments will be missed In My Humble Opinion.

    But out of all those photos, I could probably narrow it down to 100 of my favorites. 25 prewedding, 25 ceremony, 35 reception, 15 day after shoot

    Photography was one of our biggest splurges. We paid around $3000 for 7 hours and 2 photographers with about 150 guests. We ended up with 730 edited hi-res photos on a disc which we have the print rights to so we can print as many as we like and create our own albums. I can only estimate that well over 1000 photos were taken, but the 700 we got were so amazing and captured pretty much every moment.

    Oh okay well if you just want beach pictures, 30 would be okay. I feel like that’s a normaly amount for a bridal shoot or engagement shoot. My day after shoot lasted 2 hours and of those, about 15-20 will make it to my album and they’re INCREDIBLE photos. I wouldn’t even want any more than that from just a shoot with Darling Husband and I.

    We got 2500 photos from 10 hours of time and two photographers.  Not sure how many they actually took though.
