What Does a Wedding Gallery Look Like?
More than a few times I've had clients ask me at a consultation - so how do we get our images? What does the gallery look like? These are important questions to ask and every photographer has a different way of delivering (and charging for) their final high-resolution images. I personally do not charge my clients for each image downloaded. My clients receive approximately 600-750 high-resolution images, depending on the amount of coverage they purchased. So many great wedding industry photographers deliver roughly this amount (Jose Villa, Jasmine Star, Ben Sasso, to name a few). Anything more than this, to me, is overkill. Also, this is the most reasonable amount I can offer - since I do light retouching and color correction work on every single image delivered.
For deliverables to my clients I currently choose Pixieset as my preferred mode of delivery. I find that Pixieset is the most user-friendly, easy-to-use platform with tremendous functionality. From their gallery, clients can order prints, favorite photos, select photos for albums, share photos on social media platform, make certain photos that they don't like private, and much more.
When I deliver clients their gallery, they will see that I've chosen my top 125-200 photos and marked them as "Highlights". Then their photos will be split chronologically into sections of the day ("Getting Ready", "Formals", etc.) I prefer to take the time to split up the photos this way because otherwise it can be overwhelming to receive a huge mass of photos that are placed out of order.

Please Note: The photos included in this sample gallery are lesser quality and smaller than the hi-res photos I deliver to my clients.
Also, I have not included the Ceremony as for this particular wedding, according to tradition, it happened on a different day. There was also no Cocktail Hour at this wedding. Each wedding is different in terms of the events involved and amount of photos delivered for each portion of the day. But this should give you a broad sense of how your photos are delivered in the final result.
