3 weeks for epics.. 

that’s really unprofessional of your photog to do that.  Keep that in mind, if you are using them for wedding pics (related to timing of getting them back)

It’s been almost 2 weeks for me too. She told us 3 weeks, but I’m the same with you and thought maybe she’d post a few teaser pics on her blog. She hasn’t yet. I’m getting really impatient too, especially after a good friend of mine got hers in 5 days!! I even tried to email my photographer asking about something off topic to see if she’d offer them up. No luck. Ha.

@kfricke89: ah! my brain did not compute that it was 2 1/2 weeks ago…  ๐Ÿ™‚  BUT – I don’t think they should quote you unrealistic timeframes.  My photog said 3 weeks and it took her 3 weeks to the day.  I always over-quote timeframes so I can deliver and exceed expectations ๐Ÿ™‚ but, that’s just me.  You’d think working in the wedding business they’d know us brides are DYING to see finished product ๐Ÿ˜‰

My photog gave me a sneak peak of 15 photos the NIGHT she took the photos!!  She said she always gives her brides or couples some to hold them over while she does the rest!   And after reading your post – i appreciated it, I would be going crazy waiting!!

I bet!! I’m sure they will be beautiful!!   My friend’s photographer blows her off a lot but is always there for their meetings and is professional but doesnt reply to her numerous emails.  I think they are probably used to working with us crazy brides who want everything done yesterday! ๐Ÿ˜‰  Can’t wait to see them!!

Even though I hate The Pros for everything they did get our E-pics back within 2 weeks so I was happy about that!

Our photographer said it would be about 3 weeks, and exactly 3 weeks later I emailed him to see what was up, and then the next day he hadn’t emailed me back so I called him.  He said he was mailing them out that day, so it took another week from that day for us to get them (we got e-pics in vegas and we live in md).  I asked if he could send me some teasers and he did.  I totally understand your frustration–waiting sucks, especially when you want to start going through them so you can create your Save-The-Date Cards.

From what I recall, it took about a month.

UGH…I’m sooo in the same boat as you!!  Doesn’t it suck??!!

Anyways, we had ours taken on October 23…and still nothing!!  She did tell us right after our session that she’s running a bit behind, but she said it’ll be about 3 weeks.  Well, 3 weeks was LAST Saturday…now we’re pushing 4!!!  And yes, I’m a crazy person too and I keep checking my e-mail and stalking her website just in case!  I just don’t want to be the pain in the ass bride that seems bitchy…especially cuz she’s gunna control our wedding day pics!  AAHHHH!!

@dj: Oh man…I feel for ya!  Wow, “7-10 days” and we’re almost 4 weeks out…I’d be blowing up her phone! 

Well, hopefully in spite of the miscommunication, your pictures will come out gorgeous!  Heck, the more time they have to work on them, odds are they’ll be that much better, right?!  =)
