Does it say in your contract how long your photog has to deliver the photos? I’ve generally seen anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks to deliver the edited pics to you, so a month doesn’t seem that unreasonable. I know it must be hard to wait though–sorry!

I know it’s really hard to wait, but I think the average for turnaround on edited wedding pics is about 1.5-2 months. Our took a little over a month, and I was SO antsy at that point!

I kind of wish your photographer hadn’t gone on and on about how they needed tp update their website. That was kind of weird. I would imagine you’ll see something in 2-4 weeks.

“i’m sure the images will be great” so she hasn’t even looked at them yet?!

We got to see 5 teasers about 8 weeks after the wedding (took FOREVAH) but didn’t get to see them on the website until about 3-4 months later. It sucked!

Yep I’ve seen it take about 2-3 months for some.  My photographer said that it would take awhile because there were 3 cameras taking photos and they average about 1500 images per camera.  They said they do a first pass and delete any images that aren’t good ie. blurry/eyes closed etc.  They said then they each (3 photographers) go through and pick their favorite photos.  Then the last step is to edit them before they send.  So if you think about all the work that they do of narrowing down to the top photos, that takes awhile. 

Plus this is the wedding season time that they most likely are booked almost every weekend.

My contract says 8-12 weeks as well. I would of course HOPE for them sooner, but I think 2-3 months is pretty standard.
