So what happens to those wedding pictures that never make it to the final album ?
As a wedding photographer i usually average about 2500 pictures a wedding. after culling and editing i get maybe 200 images to fit into the wedding album and load a couple of hundreds more into the slideshow they get in HD format at the end of the day. I try to keep this minimal, so as not to get the collection too cramped up.
All my couples also get a jpeg cd/dvd with the same images on them, which brings me to my question, what happens to those numerous images that aren’t fit for prime time? What happens to those underexposed images, those blurred images or those wedding pictures we feel as photographers shouldn’t be seen by the public.
To all the photographers based out there, both in Nigeria and internationally, how do you handle this images, when we shoot weddings, what happens to those pictures the couple never gets to see? Shouldn’t they ?
Something in me always wants to give out all the pictures because in my opinion, they all represent a moment in their lives, which they will never be able to get back or see again.
I know professional photographers prefer to only show their good pictures, this i fully understand but as wedding photographers, should this bind us as well?
Shouldn’t the number of the great images in the album be enough to assure the couple that we are still amazing photographers when they see the not so great ones?
Just my views let me know what you think.
Attached are some pictures of a Saxophone player i met at a recent wedding in Nigeria, his name is Olasax and he’s such an amazing talent.
