The tragic accident may well end the North American vogue for " trash the wedding dress" photography may well come to an abrupt end, it didn't seem quite to have caught on here.

I haven't done any weddings at all since the change over to digital and at 72 I guess I won't be doing any more either. Reading about some people regularly taking 5000 pictures and one taking 10,000 - do these guys issue all their images at full resolution? I only ask because I also read that a DVD is supplied to the customer. Or do they supply at a reduced resolution?

I would guess that to cover 5000 at full resolution will require many many DVDs!

Even though some wedding photographers do take way too many photographs, I would suspect that the final edit of photographs that the client sees or receives is probably more in the region of 500 - 600 images. Taking 5,000 seems a little over the top, let alone 10,000. I suspect that they take this many as they are not confident in their ability and feel that if they take enough then a good percentage of them will be acceptable.

I would normally take between 600 & 1,200 photographs at a wedding, the numbers vary due to a whole manner of reasons including the weather, the amount of time you spend at the wedding (some only require minimum coverage, say 4 hours, where as some require all day, up to 10 hours) and whether or not the clients have supplied you with a large wedding photograph list or just leave it up to you to do your standard shots. Taking too many un-neccesary photographs also pro longs your processing time, 1.200 images would typically take me around 2 days to edit down and prepare them for viewing by the clients. Photographing two weddings a week in peak times is a full 6 days work if you are doing all of the photography and processing yourself, as I would suspect that most wedding photographers are. Throw into that, wedding album design, meetings with clients and all the other little things that need to be done like checking all your kit stays in good working order etc. then you will soon find yourself working a seven day week. I was at the studio yesterday processing studio portraits and preparing images for an upcoming wedding fayre (nearly always on sundays), and I am at the studio today processing wedding photographs.

I'm not complaining though, it';s good to be busy Grin .

10,000 photos at a wedding? No wonder they worry about shutter life! Wink

Can you imagine the cost of film and d&p in the "good old days"?

In my case never 24 or 36, that was 35mm film. I, like most wedding photographers, always used 6x6 film or 6x4.5 ie medium format. So generally 48 pics maximum.

Rolleis, Hassles and Mamiya C220 and C330s (The 6 X 6 cameras) used 12 exposure rolls and the Mamiya 6 x 4.5 (my favourite) used 18 exposures. My favourite because of the format, the 18 exp rolls and the provision of spare 'backs'. which could be preloaded before the wedding commenced ready for use. When used with a pentaprism viewfinder of course to correct the image. Without such, the medium format cameras had a laterally reversed image on display which was a nuisance for fast use.

Last wedding I did (and I don't do many) I shot about 400 images, around half of which were duplicates. Edited down to 120 for the couple's DVD and slideshow. I was there all day though they didn't want any of the evening do after the speeches and cake cutting. They were more than happy with the results.
In olden days, I'd shoot 3-4 rolls of 35mm or 5-6 rolls of 645 and produce an album of 25-30 images.

Now everybody seem to want DVDs alone, and no album.
