  • 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?

          I know that RAW files, essentially digital negatives, provide far greater flexibility in terms of editing than already processed files. It is widely recommended to do as much as possible in the RAW converter before starting with pixel editing.

          While doing compositing, I sometimes struggle...

          ..that title sounds harsh!

          here's the deal- i work in a studio where shooting in raw is the norm. many other studios i associate with use raw as needed, for backup. their .jpg files are suitable for print in 99% of all cases.

          because .raw files are being used, the photog...

          Loss in detail TIFF vs RAW???

          So I was wondering, how far do you guys push the raw before you are satisfied with the conversion?

          I found that once it's "balanced", it is easier for me to add color/contrast/whatever adjustments as adjustment layers in photoshop, rather to go trough couple of conversions?...

          Do you shoot (and Edit) in RAW

          I usually shoot in a mode that provides both RAW and high quality JPEG. It sure eats up memory cards though.

          It seems that the RAW files provide a much larger image file but this may not always be a good thing. Often the JPEG is the better looking image coming out of the camera and...
