I'm a wedding photographer. I have an amount of wedding photos that require the following:
1. Reviewing up to 2500 photos, and reducing to the best 1000.
2. Editing the best 1000 in either Lightroom (preferred) or Photoshop - tone, lighting, style, color etc.
Lightroom is my preference, because I would like the photos to be exported as a lightroom catalogue. Thus preserving the adjustments as well as the original photo. Most of these adjustments that I am looking for can be achieved simply in Lightroom.
I'm looking for a once off fee for this service, not a price per photo. The reviewing and reducing process should be based on removing the obvious bad shots, keeping only the best 1000. The best means, best focus, has artistic merit, good composition etc. Also, I expect you to be mindful of the overall of a wedding. So it's important not to have too few shots of the ceremony or family/friends. Most importtant the Bride and the groom well edited shots maybe about 50 and out of that selected shots should be the shots of Bride, Groom, Bride and Groom etc to be really Creatively Artistic, with photo merge, background swapping etc approx..10 photos.
I look forward to talking to you soon.
