We got ours in three weeks, but from what I understand, that’s REALLY fast.

Average is anywhere from 4-8 weeks, and a lot of the photographers who deliver on the faster end of that dont edit all the photos, only a select number for the album or really basic edits.

I think we got our entire CD edited with almost 700 pictures back right after our honeymoon so maybe 2 – 3 weeks, tops.  I don’t think it’s rude to ask her for an estimate especially if you’re planning to use them for thank yous or maybe just ask her for a few.

We were told 8-10 weeks and they ended up coming in at right around 8 weeks.  (And photographer apologzied for the delay).  All images were color corrected and edited before we received them (about 1500 images).

4-8 weeks for the edited disks, longer for albums.

@moniquaa:  DATE TWIN!!

I’m haveing the same issue. We had one sneak peak posted the day after the wedding and that was it. We were orginally qouted a month for getting all of ours back. But does that mean 4 week or 6 weeks?  But coming up on three weeks I’m very tempted to email them about it. I keep getting asked about when ill have pictures. I go back to work next week to start school and I know I’m just gonna be asked a million more times about pictures. I want them now! lol

Our photog posted a sneak peek of like 5 photos a few days after our wedding. He says it will take 6 weeks for him to finish editing all of them. (I can’t wait!)

Our contract states 90 days. It’s only been a month, so I’m cool.

Ours was about 8 weeks, I think, before we got to view our photos.  We got our album yesterday, 5 months after the wedding.

Dont stress its only 3 weeks. 🙂 Most do 4-8 weeks. If someone gets them quickly they hired a photographer that doesnt do as much editing or they dont book as many weddings so they have time to deliver more quickly.

Exactly a month. We received the thumb drive with images just a few days ago.

Try not to freak out yet!! 🙂 I know I was SUPER anxious to get our photos, but it took the photogs around 6 weeks. Summer and fall is prime wedding season for our photogs so I know their turnaround isn’t as quick this time of year.

Our photographer posted 23 edited sneak peak pictures a day after our wedding. We are getting the edited disc of all of our pictures around 5 weeks after our wedding, so around 3-4 weeks from now 🙂 can’t wait to see them!

I think up to 3 months is acceptable if you have a busy photographer. We got our in less than 2 weeks, but that is not normal.
