Do you deliver every image you shoot?

No I do not. Most good photographers don’t. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. For example, because I shoot with low apertures, and different lighting, sometimes I take a few extra shots to make sure we have the perfect focus. I don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, best lighting or composition so I spend hours doing that on my end.

In another example, candid laughs and emotional tears are some of the best images from the day. Unfortunately, they can also yield some strange or unflattering facial expressions. I might snap a few extras of any of these moments to make sure we have a great shot with the ideal expression for the moment. With my expertise of processing thousands of images each year, I may eliminate ones that I feel are duplicates and only deliver the best one. I do this so you don’t have to be worried about choosing the right shot and can just appreciate them all!
