so you are saying that if you shoot 100 candids during a wedding 80-90 of those are approved and given to the client?
Yes. It's a bit of a throwback from film shooting. Old habits die hard I guess. I've only been digital for 5 seasons now (since 2006 season), and shot 7 seasons of film weddings before that. Around 2002 there was more of a push for candids, with digital just starting to take off. Every shot had to be purposeful or you were literally throwing profits away! I don't miss film wedding shooting at all. blah!!

Aren't any of you the least bit concerned that when brides google you, they might come across a forum post where you admit to giving them only 1/4 of the photos you take?
It doesn't bother me. Actually, during the initial consult, most clients ask how many pics I take in a day and how many I deliver. I tell them, "would you rather have all the best pics, or do you want to spend countless hours sorting through a billion photos only to narrow it down to the list I would have delivered to you anyways?"

Question for you. You deliver 500-700. Do you edit all of those or just a % of them?
Yes, every single photo gets individual attention in Lightroom. I don't batch process; it isn't a good method to deliver good exposure. Changing the angle just a bit can give you a different exposure value. Which is why I'm kinda slow in turnaround. When it comes to processing speed, I suck.
