    I'm looking at the price list for my photographer and I can't decide how many pictures we should get. I just want to get them on a cd.

    How many pictures did everyone buy?

      I think the package I got is for 100 or 150. Good luck!

        What are the choices? I got 500 with my wedding DVD from my photog and have yet to look through all of them!

          They have prices listed for 20, 30, 50, 70, 100, 150, or 200. If you want more than 200, you have to contact them for a price quote. I can't even imagine looking through 500 pictures!! I think I would get sick of seeing myself lol.

            Our package consists of 100 pictures in an album, on a cd and on the website with 3 hours of coverage.

              I had hundreds, but I think the more important thing is to make sure you specify if you want certain people or elements of your wedding captured on film prior to the wedding day, as you'll be too crazed on that day, and the photographer can't read your mind. Sometimes they go by who you are spending time with at the wedding, but there are very dear people to me I spent quality time with on the days before but didn't spend much time w/at my actual wedding b/c I was so all over the place, you know?

                I had 2000 on cd, but that was overboard. Many of them are repeats of the same photo (the wonder of digital photography). Many photographers will sort through them for you and only give you the best ones. My photographer just deleted the ones with closed eyes or other obvious problems and gave us all the rest, letting us choose our favorites out of the ones that are the same.

                If I only had photos that were different, then I think 500 would do. I actually sorted them and put together a folder with my top 700 favorite. So I guess anywhere between 400-700 and I would be happy. But that is with having a photographer all day.

                If I was using your photographer with those packages, I would probably go with 200.

                  I usually provide between 500-700 or so for full day coverage (6-9 hours). The amount depends on how many hours of coverage my clients choose. Another factor that comes into play is that at some weddings there are more things going on (more dancing, etc.) compared to other weddings, and so that also affects the total number of images I deliver.

                  If you are only going to have 2-3 hours of coverage, then 100-200 would be about the right number of images to expect.

                  Best wishes,

                    We had almost 600 photos in about 5 hours of coverage. The pro pics are up on a website, but we ordered a CD with all the photos on it so we have everything
