Barbiestylez:  we asked for a sneak peak of 15+ pics less than a week after the wedding so we could show family at our celebration in their states, but he got those to me within a day after the ceremony. Full album took a month or two. The first timing was amazingly good but highly unusual- most photogs we talked too needed at least 3-6 weeks even just for previews….

Barbiestylez:  Saw your recap thread…very beautiful! Our photographer got 12 sneak peek pics to us 48 hours after the wedding. We will be getting the rest on Wednesday of this week, which will be about three and a half weeks from the wedding.

Barbiestylez:  We got sneak peak within the week, but we’re now in the 6th week from the wedding and hopefully will receive them soon, since she said 4-6 weeks is her normal turn around time.

I think generally 8-12 weeks is typical for full package turn around time with a sneak peek within a week or so. However, it is hard to guarantee as u never know what may affect ur photographer. I waited nearly six months for my full package.

We got our sneak peeks within two weeks and our full photos less than a month after the wedding.

My contract says 6-8 weeks, but I have been stalking their website obsessively, and today they put our gallery up, but they haven’t sent me the password yet!! I’m trying not to think about it because I don’t want to bother them, but I’m DYING. Its been 4 weeks since our wedding.

We didn’t get any sneak peek photos. Retrospectively, I would have asked for them because I want to relive everything so bad right now.

I had a sneak peek that night.  But it took a longgggg time for all them to come back.

sneak peak within 2 days…then I think it took a month or so to get a link to our online gallery.  Album took forever, but that’s because I helped with the layout and chose photos.
