I think it’d be totally okay to contact her about a timeline, just so you know when to expect them to be done. And if you’re worried about them not being done in time to order STD’s, then maybe you could even ask to look through your pictures so you can pick one that you’d want to use, and ask her to get that photo ready first. I’m not a photographer, but I don’t see that being rude.

Your message sounds perfect. 🙂
I would be surprised if she gets offended.

Your message sounds great, I would do it through email though so you have something to track

I love your wording! Informal and low-pressure!

Don’t send a text. Email them to whatever their professional email address is and tell them politely when you need the photos in order to get your save the date order in on time. They really should have given you an idea of when the photos would be done, at least approximately. Now keep in mind that 11 days is super early for most professionals to turn over a portrait session. Usually it’s a 3-4 week lead time.

Emailing them at their address is more professional and plus, you have a record of the communication. I wouldn’t send a text either.
