My fiance and I had our engagement picture session two weeks ago from today. Our photographers told us they would get us a preview in about a week and the rest of the pictures should be ready in 3 weeks. We haven’t seen any pictures and it’s been 2 weeks so I’m super anxious! Should I email them and ask or just wait a bit longer (how much longer?) ? Definitely don’t want to seem pushy or anything because I’m sure they’re busy, but I’m going crazy waiting to see them. Thanks !

I would write them an email personally. I am a photographer and do engagements all of the time. If it had been two weeks since a session and I hadn’t posted a preview I would expect an email. It is quite possible something may have them backed up, but I am sure they would take the time to explain in that case. I would just write them and express your excitement to see them and ask for an estimated timeframe for the preview.

AdaLee: I don’t see anything wrong with asking. I hate that brides are forced to put up with unprofessional behavior because we don’t want to upset the vendor or appear to be a bridezilla. It’s sexist and unbearably aggrivating. Your photographer committed to a particular date for previews and is one week late from that date. If a man contracts with a professional for a specific service and that service arrives one week later than promised, nobody would fault him for expressing his frustration. But if a woman does she’s bitchy or demanding. Arrgg!! Haha ok I’ll climb off my soapbox 🙂

Thanks for your responses! 2 replies were good enough for me haha- I emailed them and they wrote me this morning, apologizing for the delay and that wedding season has them really busy. Won’t get a preview until Wednesday or Thursday though! :/ Anyways, just thought Id update.
