I think this varies by photog, but I agree that that sounds like not many, in this digital age. We got about 1100 shots (which excluded the eyes closed, etc ones – that or there weren’t any Wink).

I had 2 shooters for 5 hours… 610 photos. These are all the “good” ones.. i.e. peoples eyes are closed or they weren’t ready for the shot. From the 610, he’s letting us pick the ones we wanted to do extra editing on.. then we’ll choose shots for albums.

Our fabulous photographer gave us one disc with 180 of her favorites (which we used mostly to pick our album photos out of) and then we had rights to all photos, so she gave us several discs with approximately 1800 photos on there.  She must have taken out all the eyes closed/bad face pictures because of the 1800 there really isn’t a bad one in the bunch.  I know that she shot about 2,000 that day (with the second shooter).

Of course I believe that our photographer is physically incapable of taking a bad photo, so maybe she had a higher proportion of amazing pictures!

Maybe you can ask her if there are other images she didn’t send your way.  Hopefully, that’s the case!

Your question finally motivated me to visit my photographers site and count how many photo’s he took, 687 exactly.  We had a two person team.  They shot the ceremony (absolutely no before/getting ready shots at my request), portraits afterwards and the first four hours of the reception, approximately 7 hours total.

๐Ÿ™ If I get any less than 1000 I’m going to be REALLY sad. I’m pretty specific on what I like and while I LOVE LOVE LOVE our photographer and trust them completely, I’m afraid that their favorites won’t be mine!

2200.  It was one of the largest galleries our photographer had ever put up.

They were with us for nearly twelve hours and we took a ton of pictures before the ceremony.  We had a first look, then regular portraits of us, and our bridal party pictures.  We had a third shooter for the ceremony and reception.

I doubt that your photographer is purposely keeping any great pictures from you.  I’m sorry that you’re not happy with the number you received ๐Ÿ™

I’m with KM-I hope I get at least 1000!!! I’d be so sad otherwise! I’m sorry there seem to be some missing!

@Labrador – SAME HERE. She seriously edited about 20 of them, the rest (about 400 or so) were so amateur hour and blurry with RED EYE, for gods sake…. I feel sick everytime i look at them. >:(

I’m so sorry you’re disappointed Mrs. Lab ๐Ÿ™  I know it probably isn’t much consolation, but I saw your photog’s blog post of your wedding, and the pictures she posted are gorgeous. I agree that you have every right to be upset – I had 2 photographers for 7 hours and received over 1000 pictures (all of which are good, ie no closed eyes, blurry, etc). If she doesn’t respond to your email, I think you should try asking her about it again. ((hugs))

As a photographer, we give all images no matter how many with basic editing i.e. color correction and let the bride choose around 400 of them for image enhancement. So in total you should get about 800 to a 1000.
