@danafish:  What does your contract say regarding delivery times? I think I had a preview on their blog within a week, and my full gallery up around 8 weeks. FWIW, that’s the same time frame I tell my clients. Blog/FB preview within a week, and full gallery in 6-8 weeks. Although I do tell them that if they’re getting married during busy season (May/June & Sept/Oct) it’s almost always closer to the 8 week mark.

@danafish:  My photography said there would be sneak peak within a week of the wedding, and then everything else will be at the latest 3 months.

It all depends on what your photographer offers. I would just call to check up for an estimate or a couple sneak peaks to tide you over. 🙂

My standard turnaround is 8-10 weeks for photos but sometimes gets to be 3 months, especially for busy May and June months and for weddings in November because I do take time off from work for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

We were right around the 3 month mark, which seemed long compared to a lot of girls here.  I would reach out and ask for a timeline!  Especially cause this isn’t the busy season.

A couple of months is pretty normal. After four months I would start to bug them about it. There’s no harm in checking in and asking for an ETA, though. Might move you up the queue a little too!

Less than a month. Ours are already in the mail, but we’ve got access to them online.

@danafish:  We got our online gallery in about 6 weeks, our flash drive with the photos slightly after (was a couple days delayed due to Thaanksgiving) and our hard copy proofs in 8 weeks. Our photographer was in communication with us the whole time (when the site went up and shipping info). This was also within the timelines in our contract.

Did you have a contract? Did it specify when you would receive your photos? I know how frustratedy ou must be to get your beautiful photog photos!
