We waited a little over 3 months.  Until we got our pros, I was constantly F5-ing our photog’s blog, likely adding thousands of hits to her site counter.

We waited 28 days.

 

  I have to say thought we went through Bella Pictures which matches you with a photographer and our order which photo’syou want retouched (I have to say, I’m not impressed with their retouching and did most of our pictures myself… but the price was great)

WE waited about a month for the pro pics.  However, there was very little retouching and I was VERY disappointed with the pictures overall.  I’ve already posted about it a few times, so I won’t rehash it here.  But stay away from http://www.theweddingphotographer.com

4 months.  Too long, but the photos were amazing!

It’s hard to say because we had to go to the studio to see them, so it took a while to find a day that worked for us to go there since it’s about an hour drive.  The ones they showed us, that we got to choose album photos from, had not retouching, and the CD of the images they did give us also had no retouching.  They said that if we want any of the images they do retouch we can only buy individual prints, but we don’t have rights to the actual photo…I think that’s crappy business considering we could have bought a nice little used car with the amount of money we’ve paid them up until this point.

We waited just over 2 months before the photographer posted some photos on her blog and then mailed out our CD of negatives.

It was a reasonable amount of time, but that didn’t keep me from stalking her blog weekly following the wedding.

About a month– I was surprised and delighted at how fast it was and I loved our pics.

Our photos were ready almost exactly 1 month after our wedding (meaning all our fully edited photos were in an online gallery for our family and friends to view, including a slideshow set to music).  I think turn around time really depends on the time of year…if you get married at the start of peak wedding season, I’m sure it takes much longer.

10 weeks! It felt like FOREVER, too!

We waited about 3 months, and a year later we still haven’t chosen our photos yet (though we did start finally)! One bummer though, we realized that our photographer never took any pics of just me and my new hubby. No formals, and none where it is just the two of us, besides our first dance and those are sort of awkward. That was hugely disappointing, but on the day I was too "head in the clouds" to realize it!

Oh well….

Three weeks until they were all up online.  It helped that we were married in May, before the huge wedding rush of the summer, but I was amazed with how quickly the turn around was.  We got the actual print proofs about 2 weeks later.

The timing actually worked out PERFECTLY, because we got the link to the online gallery the day before my mother’s major surgery.  She was thrilled to be able to spend a few hours pre-op looking through all the pictures — definitely helped to keep her mind off the fact that they were about to cut her open!

From our wedding date:

– about 3 weeks until they posted 50+ pics on their blog

– 2 months until we could see all the photos on their proofing website

…. and it’s now been 4 months and we should be getting the discs of all original photos in the next few weeks!

It took about a month and we got all the proofs on online, and then sometime that week the disk of imaged showed up in the mail!
