Talking pricing/time for edit weddings with 15k pictures

Hello to all...

I want to know how long do u guys need for editing weddings?
and what is your experience how long do u need for jobs like this?



I do editing weddings for manny years and usually i get from the photographer all photos from the wedding (3-4000 raw files) and my job is:

client 1:
-i get 3-4000 raw files
-delete bad ones, duplicates, and correct white ballance,tones..
(usually half of the raw files)
-make a "best of selection" of 250 pictures
-edit in LR,PS 250 pictures (vsco style)
-make a slideshow and web gallery
-burn all on dvds, print labels, covers



But i also have a client with unusual 4days weddings, pictures taken from 3-4 photographers... and this is what i get and need to be done:


Client 2:
-i get 15-20 000 raw photos
-delete bad ones, duplicates, and correct white ballance,tones..
(usually half of the raw files)
-sort and make panoramas from the reception
-make a "best of selection" of 1000 pictures
-edit in LR,PS 1000 pictures (vsco style)
-make 2 different wedding book designs (35 spreads)
-make a slideshow and web gallery
-burn all on dvds, print labels, covers



...so for "client 1" my time to make all this is 3 work days(8h/day)
and for "client 2" is 10 work days (8h/day)
My client is a expensive studio with really good pictures and the edit need to be high class!


what do u think? am i too slow? too fast?
what is your experience?
do u have clients with similar needs?


thank u

I don't think you'll find anyone here that does weddings, unless it's for magazine publishing, as it requires no retouching(retouching=DNB, global and local, establishing a look including contrast, color palette, removing distractions, enhancing detail, masking.... pretty much everything that an image needs to become art).

As for editing, I think that is reasonably fast(editing=choosing the image and developing the raw).

I am not speaking of regular weddings, and i am not speaking just regular editing of colours... i have studio shoots fashion,beauty magazine style .. i have reception shoots, panoramas, HDR... (every edited picture needs to be like for a magazine)

Like Skoobey, I can't get my head around the numbers involved and the concept of 'high class' retouching. Typically, how long do you spend on one image?
