Did you try calling him?  I got married March 6, our pictures went up probably about two to three weeks later and it only took a week or two from there to receive our dvd in the mail, so total about four to five weeks.

Wow that’s a toughy… It took us 7 weeks BUT in our photog defense… it’s something he does on the side and he works full time do something else. That and he’s a friend of ours so we knew the circumstances around the wait.

I would really press getting in touch with the photog.. maybe even going to their studio or calling them?..

definitely a stinking situation.. hope it gets worked out soon! 😉

Mine took about a month and a half. But in my contract it stated she had 2 months to get them to us. Try not to worry too much, I know it is really hard to wait that long. Did they give an estimated time when they might be done editing them when you daughter booked them? or is it in the contract?

You should have photos in about two months on average. Did his contract state any differently? If he is especially busy, it may be a bit longer. I looked at the site you posted previously and he does seem to be a pro, so that has me less worried than if it was a newbie.

I’d try to leave a message stating 1) it’s been three months 2) reiterate what the contract states and 3) could you please update us asap as to the delivery date? You may want to state that you are very excited, are happy with what he’s posted so far etc. good luck!

I think about 2 months is normal. So 3 seems a little too long. I would follow up.

I guess it depends on how much editing you’ve contracted as well. We got our photo DVD the day we came home from our honeymoon (just under 2 weeks from the wedding). However, our photographer only edited about 30 teaser images for his webpage, the other 600+ were untouched so all he had to do was put them on the DVD. We got our photo book about 3 months later.

I was married in December and am just getting mine now (as in tomorrow :-)!). Even the photographers admits its been a long time, but it sounds like they were up against a lot at work (it’s their side job–but that also meant we got an amazing package at a really reasonable rate) and they got really, really sick for a while. Frustrating, yes, but understandable. Your photographer should, at the very least, give you a timeline of when the photos should be done. I would definitely agree that pushing to get in touch is a solid idea
