    3 weeks. I think that seven weeks is wayyy too long. They better be spectacular!

    7 weeks isn’t so off the average, especially since you live in a warm area where wedding season starts a lot earlier.

    I think it took our photog about 5 weeks? But I think the average is really around 6, give or take a week or two, if the photog fully edits the photos and does it as a full time job.

    We had ours back 2-3 weeks after. Not sure of the exact time frame since they came in while we were on our Honeymoon. I think our contract said they could take 4-6 weeks so our photog was super punctual.

    Ours were like a month, but we left on a two week Honeymoon and our photo knew that, so she didn’t hurry. Our e-pics were back from her in less than 2.

    What does your contract say?
    Turn around time varies from photographer to photographer. Also, keep in mind that we are in the middle of peak wedding season, so your photographers workflow is likely heavier than normal.

    Wow–I didn’t realize it took so long to get photos back for land weddings. We’ll have ours before we debark our cruiseship. We’re getting married on Day 3 and we’ll have them at the end of Day 7–so a four day turn-around.

    @MrsBoomBoom:  We didn’t receive our dvd with images until 5 months after the wedding. I think it was only sent at that point because I started bugging the photographer and I’m not entirely sure she did any editing on the photos. We had a sneak peak of images on facebook about 10 days after the wedding and a slideshow of images about 2 months after the wedding. But overall she was slow as molasses in sending the dvd.
