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?

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.

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,

Tod

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
