    Mine isn’t typical, but we had a slideshow of images about 2 months after the wedding. We received the disc with images 5 months after the wedding and that was only because I bugged her for them. So I ended up hating our pro photographer.

    Most ladies on this site seem to get their pro images within 2 months of the wedding.

    There should have been something mentioned in your contract about this. At least that would give you a basis for how long it generally takes them to compile the pictures.

    We had ours back about 3 weeks later though I’m not sure of the exact time frame. All I know is that the disk was in our mailbox when we got home from our week long HM in which we left for 2 weeks after our wedding. 

    ETA: We had a few teasers within a few days of our wedding.

    I didn’t vote. I got ALL (1,398) my photos back and edited in 2 weeks. My photographer is very busy and stays on top of everything.

    @StarryNight2011:  Wow, 5 months?! There’s no way I would have been that patient.

    @UpstateCait:  I wasn’t patient. I was pissed, still am. There is no reason she needed 5 months to ‘edit’ the images. She was just lazy.

    We got a few teasers/ blog post only a couple days later and a longer teaser slide show about a week later. We got all of the photos on DVD about a month after the wedding.

    We got our teasers 2 days after, and our proofs about 1 month after.  I loved our photographer!

    We received a few teasers the week following the wedding and a nightmare phone call shortly after that. The photographer (also a friend) had moved photos directly from camera to her laptop… it encountered a glitch of some sort and there is a large chance that our pictures are gone for good. 🙁 I am praying that isn’t the case and that Geek Squad may be able to recover things. (That sounds selfish but this is HUGE, right?!)

    4 weeks for teasers and less than 2 months for a full set, edited.

    It’s a bit of a wait compared to some other brides, but sooooo worth it.

    I totally agree that a photographer shouldn’t take 5 months to retouch photographs. She totally was being lazy! When I ship the CD of photos to my clients, they get ALL the images within a week, and then the retouching takes maybe a week, but that’s it. It’s ridiculous to make you wait for so long. I’m sorry that happened to you!
