Our wedding was this past Friday, and used one of the George Street Photogrpahy as our Photographer. He emailed me the day after and said he sent all the pictures to George Street for Editing. I was wondering how long this usually takes.
I got an email from our “Wedding coordinator” and they said 6- 8 weeks. That seems extremely long. During the dinner the phtographer said it’s normally longer if you have a video and if you have a long wedding with many shots. We didn’t have a video and the photgrapher said he shot a lot of pictures but normally he shoots more (because of the size of our wedding).
Any insight would help.

I don’t think that 6-8 weeks is extremely long. It does feel like forever, but that is about average for wedding photography.

6-8 weeks is actually pretty quick for wedding photography! Maybe ask if they can provide a ‘sneak peek’ of a few images? In the meantime I asked our friends to please send or post pictures!

Our contract stated 3-4 months and we got everything at the 2 month mark which was really nice! That included video because they did both for us.

krd2016: Yep that’s totally normal. My photographer said 12 weeks and I think I got them in 14. They were beautiful though and it’s clear she did some careful editing.

That is a normal amount of time for editing. Usually places underpromise and overdeliver so hopefully it will be a bit sooner 🙂

krd2016: That’s exactly the amount of time I was quoted, 6-8 weeks. Ask if your photographer can provide preview photos though? My photograher offered when I inquired about the time frame so double check if thats something they do?
Keep in mind obviously that they have other weddings/photoshoots that were likely shot before yours that also need to be edited. I’m pretty sure they edit in order so give them some time 🙂

krd2016: I’d say that sounds about correct. It’s the busiest time of the year for photographers at the mo and editing photographs is an art and takes time to do correctly.

krd2016 Did you ever receive your photographs? I booked George Street Photography as well, both the pictures and video because they had a promotion on it. I would love to see how your pictures turned out because I have been reading good and very bad reviews about this company, which is making me a little too nervous.

READ WITH CAUTION:
We had a horrible experince with George Street. I will start off with saying that the Sales and wedding coordinator are very tenative and helpful when you are trying to book and if you do have questions so that is a plus. But they only gave us choices of three photogrpahers. They said only three were available that day which seemed weird and We feel like we got stereotyped with the type of photographers we were given. But we choose the one we thought had the best portfolio. Before the wedding you are suppose to have a phone call with your photographer to go over any details that you feel are important. Our photographer decided to call us as he was at the airport about to go on a vacation, so he talked to us for 5-10min. We asked him if we sent him some sample photos of what we wanted, if he could “re-enact” the photos. He said no problem.
During our wedding we recieved no help from the photgrapher with posing or re doing the photos we wanted. WE SPECIFICALLY SAID WE WANTED THE GROOMS FACE DURING THE FIRST LOOK. My husband even asked which way should he turn to make sure this happens. GUESS WHAT WE DIDN’T GET! THAT WAS THE ONLY PICTURE I REALLY WANTED and I didn’t get it!.
Now on to the actual photos recieved. When you get your photos back you will only get 40% of the pictures because they “don’t want to overwhelm you,” and it’s pictures they choose. In those 40% probably 75% of them were blurry or our eyes were closed. They were also pictures we didnt care about. Then we asked to have the rest of the pictures and they sent them to us but they were unedited and it revealed that we didn’t get any of the shots we had asked for.
I hope you have better luck than us.
