It depends on the photographer. But I can speak for myself. I have a pretty fast work flow, however I make sure every single photo given to the client is processed and developed to my business’ standards. This can take as little as a day for a portrait session, to up to a month during the busy season. I usually try to stay on top of things and have a bit of a leg up do to being a graphic artist before I went full time into photography.

This applies to just a CD of photos of course. Turnover time increases depending on albums and other package goodies that the Bride chose.

For the photoraphers that I looked at where the CD wasn’t part of the package, it was about $300 or $400 to add it.

I think when you receive the CD will depend on if your photographer is editing the images, or just giving you all the raw pictures.

I include the high res DVD in my package. It’s just easier.

It takes me about a month to get the DVD to the clients. There are several factors at play.

  • I edit all of my photographs. That extra bit of love takes some time, but is worth it.
  • I work a full time job and I moonlight as a photographer.
  • I have the pictures up on my site a week or two before I send the disk.
  • Busy season or not makes a huge difference. It takes me way less time during the winter.

I think as long as you are in good communication with your photographer you can feel comfortable with a longer amount of time. I just mean, you can know that he/she is actually working on your pictures and didn’t disappear.

I’m a Bay Area wedding photographer who charges $1500 for a 5 hour shoot and $150 for each extra hours for photos on CD.     You don’t get the photos right away and it’s a GOOD thing because editing is included.       I turn mine around in 4-5 weeks,    but turnaround might be different for your photographer.

One thing to be aware of when buying a CD package like this is to really get a good understanding of what editing is included.       You want “Ready to Print” photos that are edited .    Shooting in only half the job , so make sure you get edited photos ( or be aware you may have to pay for editing later on ).

Always view WHOLE WEDDINGS with a lot of images from a SINGLE wedding to get a good idea of what your pictures will look like !

We paid an extra $800 to get the pics on a disc.  We didn’t get a package though, we added what we wanted a la carte, b/c we didn’t want the “typical” things like an epic session, any albums, printed proofs, etc.  It’s been 6 weeks so far.  We are hoping to get the disc by Christmas.

I am paying extra to get a disc of 500-600 edited images – it was number 1 on my priority list!
