- Wedding: June 2013
I’m not sure what more I can do. I’ve been waiting for my wedding pictures now for 7 weeks. In my contract, it said delivery was in 4 weeks max.
I understand tghey take a lot of editing etc, but that’s not the frustrating part. I wouldn’t MIND waiting even 12 weeks, if I knew it would take that long – right? But if you go in thinking it will be 4 weeks MAX, I expect them in 4 weeks.
At around 5 weeks, I e-mailed her and asked if she could give me an estimate on when she think it would be ready. I recieved NO reply.
At around 6 weeks, I e-mailed again to let her know my husband would be home for one week. My husband works out of province, and is gone for a month at a time, with no access to a computer. I politley asked her, if they would be ready and if not if she could send me 1 or 2 sneak peeks, just so I could show him while he was home. Again – NO reply.
This weekend My sister-in-law has a baby, so I went to the photographer to buy her some studio time and prints. She immedietly apologized and said she would get me a few sneak peaks for my husband to see.
Well, a week later, still no sneak peeks. My husband didn’t get to see ONE picture, and he won’t be home again until mid September! I called a few days before he left just to remind her he was leaving in a few, and she was totally polite and said she was working on it.
I guess its frustrating for me to see other’s getting sneak peeks on her facebook wall. Other’s have posted on there saying “I can’t wait to see their pics”, things along those lines.
What else can I do without being annoying and pushy? I feel like I already am. She is a very well known photographer in town, and she is REALLY busy. I even asked her if turn around was really four weeks, or if it tends to be longer when I signed my contract. She said very rarley does it go past 4 weeks. Once in a while it can go up to 6…. I already feel bad for being this persistent, so I’m not sure I want to do anything else.
How long did you have to wait for your pictures?!
Should I do anything else or wait it out? (Now that my husbands gone again, I really don’t care how long it takes, but I am disappointed that she couldn’t send him one picture to see.)
