Shoot around 900, about 300 proofs, 40-70 go into the album depending on their taste and budget.

Average from 500 to 1000. It covers from the morning (at the house of both sides) and during the night at the restaurant.

30 pictures go to the 15 pages leather album by leathercraftsmen ($1000 extra for this album)

I usually post between 200-500. It varies a bit, but I'm sure there is a strong correlation between the coverage time and the number of prints. I usually want to keep the number of pictures posted low (closer to 200 than to 500) as it makes the B&G's job of selecting them a lot easier. I had large amount of pics posted in the past and had to wait for a very long time in order to get the selection from the B&G...

As to the number of prints that the B&G can order... not sure that I understand the questions... but if I understand well, they can order as many as they are willing to purchase! I won't stop them!

I give them all the pics i´ve taken..

Screen versions and print versions

pre, during, and post wedding about 150-300 pics

Official shots about 100-200

Reception about 100

Dinner about 200-300

All depending on package..

From all those they can choose between 20-30 pics, i usually add some I like to that list as well.
And I create a slidedeck for them, free of charge.


Kind regards

I average 800 to 900 during the wedding day activities.

I will get 300 to 400 proofs.

I give them a 50-100 4x6 album, all the original files, and all the edited files. I do this because I have found that sometimes a photo I reject has meaning to the B&G and they want it.

To put this response in perspective I am a "volunteer" wedding photographer and I do not yet charge my B&G. I am learning the craft and I usually support friends and/or family. I shot my 1st "official" wedding last Saturday where I had no relationship to the B&G until I met them the day before the wedding. I sent Mom and Dad 24 "sample" files of my early edits on Sunday so that they could see they were getting a quality product...they were delighted with the advance peek and the photos and told me so in a very sweet email last night.


Jim -- I keep the Leica D-Lux 7 in the Glove Box just in case!
7D, G5X, 10-22MM EF-S, 17-55MM f/2.8 EF-S IS, 24-105MM f/4 EF L, Leica D-Lux 7
