Continuing my previous post on the cost of wedding photography and how I price it, it's time to consider the selection of images.
There are a number of things that contribute to the edited image, but. It is always true, regardless of the type of work, that not all images are altered. How is that? If I tell you and explain you will understand why.
When I got home from the wedding, I downloaded everything to my computer plus the hard drive. When finished, I go through all the images, removing the ones that don't fit, are a bit blurry, or aren't good enough.
During an all-day wedding, I usually take between 800 and 1200 photos of the wedding, perhaps if the weather is nice and the reception is outdoors. That number will include all group photos. For each group I shoot, I take at least 4 shots, to allow anyone to blink or look away from the camera, which is often the case. Once complete, it can take up to a week to edit the wedding images to a standard I'm happy with, but photographing some of the most beautiful locations in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and Essex is a real pleasure.
