How many photos do you get from a Wedding Photographer?

This is a question that every couple should ask. The more important factor to consider though, is quality not quantity. Anyone with a camera can take lots of pictures. What you want are great images that are well-composed and professionally edited. Amazing photos that capture the emotion of your wedding day. 

A professional and experienced Wedding Photographer should take 100-150 shots per hour. The number of photos also depends on the number of hours booked and if there is a second shooter. Two photographers will capture the same moment at different angles. An example is the bride's aisle walk. It's a key wedding moment. One photographer will focus on the groom's expression as he sees his bride for the first time. While another photographer will focus on the bride as she walks toward the groom. There will be multiple shots capturing different moments and expressions.

Getting-ready shots are a lot of fun. Sometimes it's the only down time a bride and groom will have before the festivities begin. Two photographers can capture the bride and groom getting ready separately. We often have a female photographer with the bride and bridesmaids, and a male photographer with the groom and groomsmen. Two photographers also allows time for the must-have bridal detail shots.

Most of today's photographers use digital cameras. The need to conserve film is long gone. A professional and experienced wedding photographer has the skills to carefully compose beautiful photos. A combination of traditional and candid photos that tell the story of your wedding day

If you hire a less-skilled photographer you may get more quantity and less quality. They are often guilty of rapid-fire shooting...taking dozens of photos of one scene. They are nearly identical. It then becomes overwhelming to sift through a sea of images to find the truly beautiful ones. As they say...less is more. Quality is always better than quantity.

So what can you expect? Every wedding photographer is different. Before you hire a photographer, or any wedding vendor, ask a lot of questions. What's the turnaround time? and approximately how many edited images will you receive? Make sure it's noted on the contract so there are no surprises.
