  • Wedding: June 2010 - Christmas Tree Farm

We got married on June 11 and we had our photos back in time to show our family on the 4th of July… so about three weeks? Our photographer was so great. I couldn’t have been more pleased with her.

I’m guessing we’ll have them in a week or so! Which is 5 weeks from the wedding. I’m basing that on when we got our engagement pictures and the dates in our photographer’s hosting gallery for other weddings.

Our photog said we would get ours around 9 weeks, which was last week. I emailed her yesterday and she said we should get them by next Friday, so 10-11 weeks total. I can’t wait! Our contract said 2-3 months on the photos, I believe.

BriansBride:  4 days! We got really lucky though. Our photog had some planned vacation time originally, but decided she was too excited to wait to edit/go through all the images. We got married at a very unique location (a school) that she found really interesting/beautiful, so she wanted to add the photos to her knew website that was about to launch. Usually, she gets photos back to clients between 4 and 6 weeks.

We got ours back in about 2 months.  But she shoots in film so it prob took a bit longer to edit/develop.

Lolz, we got married Nov. 9 and we’ve gotten the pictures that the photog put up on his website, but we haven’t gotten actual photos or our digital disc yet. So…yeh.

We got an online gallery of all of the photos within 4ish weeks I beleive, but we didn’t get the DVD of our photos until nearly 4 months after the wedding.  We weren’t super pleased with that, especially when our contract said we’d get the DVD within 4-6 weeks.  I still don’t know why we could have the online gallery so soon but the DVD took an extra two months…

Still irritated about this with the photographer we chose. We were told within 3 months (12 weeks) of the wedding. In reality it was 5 months (20 weeks). Pisses me off to no end that she was paid up front for the photography and didn’t deliver the product when she said she would.
