I just checked my contract and it says “finished portraits take 4-6 weeks to deliver.” and “your photos will be online within 3 months.” but we also get a cd to print up to 8×10, so I’m not sure exactly when we’ll get that. I’m prepared to wait for a while! :-/

For engagement pictures, I get the viewing gallery up in about a week, CD out by the next week.

Our photographer said up to 2-3 months to get an “unlimited” number of edited images to us, so 4-6 weeks sounds pretty good to me!

Verbally our photographer told us 1 week.

Our contact said 30 days.

We actually got them after about 10 weeks.

After a lot of bugging her and finally giving her an “expected completion date”.

We got our wedding pictures online in just about 4-5 weeks and the cd sent out around the same time.  About 1500 pictures.

I can’t remember how long it took for our engagement pictures. I think about a month. We have over 100 edited pictures. But she gave us a “sneak peak” after about a week that included 4 or 5 pictures.

For the wedding, it will take 3 months for over 1,000 (maybe more I’m just guessing here) edited pictures. It took 1 week for 4 or 5 pictures as our “sneak peak”. And then it took another month for her to blog our wedding, which included tons of pictures. We’re still waiting for all of them, but like I said, it takes 3 months from the wedding day.

We got sneak peeks within the week.  We got our digital album about a two weeks (maybe 3?) after the wedding.   We hope to get our photobook and DVD next week.

my photographer got some sneak peaks (about 20 photos) to us 3 days after our wedding! and the online gallery (with over 4000 photos) just 2-1/2 weeks after the wedding.  The DVDs came by 3 weeks. She’s awesome 🙂

We had a sneak peek of 40 photos online in a week. After about 8 weeks she put up an online slideshow with ~1/3 of photos. Still waiting for the online gallery with edited photos and the dvd with high resolution images. When I spoke to her 2 weeks ago, I was told the online gallery would be up in 2 weeks……so……to answer your question there can be a lot of variablity depending on each individual photographer.
