What does it say in your contract?  Our photog committed to having our engagement pictures ready within a week of the shoot but I’m not sure if that’s typical – we specifically asked for a short turnaround time.

They should totally be able to send you a few shots! Our photog actually specifically asked us if we needed any pictures earlier for stuff such as invitations or STDs. I took over engagement shoots earlier this month and they were all able to send me a few teasers, but they also weren’t done editing all the images yet. 

It’s quite unusual if they are not responding to your emails and/or phone calls, though.

We had ours done on valentines day…it’s now april1 and all we’ve seen are about a dozen proofs that she posted on her website. We have yet to see the whole album.

We had ours about a week later.  KEEP CONTACTING THEM.  I’d let them know  you need them for a specific project to see if they can step it up a bit!

We had ours taken over two weeks ago and have yet to see ours (excpet the ONE she posted on her blog). I’m soooooo anxious to get them back too!! I swear I check the mail everyday like a maniac!

It took about a week or so get my e-photos.  Did they tell you an approximate time for processing/editing?

Depending on how well known and busy the photog is I’d say the average would be 2-3 weeks wait time. It would also vary depending on how many pictures they took. Post-processing takes at least twice as long as actually taking the pictures does.

Understandably your anxious to get your photos back, but did you clarify during your session that you needed them by a specific date? I’d call and leave a message requesting a date that the photos would be ready by but dont hound them with phone calls and emails.

Glad to see it all worked out! They should have called you and let you know they were having computer problems though. (that is a valid excuse… Anne Ruthmann blogs about having tech difficulties all the time)

As brides we just get so excited we forget that the photogs are probably working on 15 other projects besides ours.. so its hard to wait sometimes! Can you post some of the pics so we can see?!
