How long after you were married did you receive your wedding album and/or your wedding video?
I have been married for more than 8 months and still do not have either. My album should be done in another 3 months and I should hopefully have my video next month but this seems like a really long time to wait.

Hmm..we got our video about 4 months after…it was supposed to be 3 months, but he said he was really busy/fell behind. We still haven’t gotten our album…because I”ve been terrible and haven’t approved all the final stuff yet!
ETA: have you contacted your photographer/videographer? 8 months seems liek a ridiculous amount of time to wait. Is there anything in your contract about how long it should take?

That sounds insane!! Especially since the busy season is starting–he should have been able to get it to you by Jan. My wedding was in Oct 9 and we had it before X-mas.

My video took a little over 6 months, although the contract stated 6 months. I got my proofs back about 5 weeks later, but still haven’t turned in the pictures I want for my album. I will probably give her about 2 months for the album before I start hounding her.

Our video and photos should be here next week, 4 months after the wedding date. That’s the same for us though, they are about a month behind what their contracts say.
Are you ladies doing anything about the fact they were late?

My contract never stated a timeframe in which I would recieve my album or video.
I saw my online proofs within days after the wedding and they were left up for 60 days so people could order prints. And then I started picking my favorites and they made a sample album, which hated the layout so then we had to do it again and now that we finalized everything I was told it take 120 days in print.
My video we just kept calling and asking and we were constantly told that they were working on it. We were contacted in Jan to provide songs which we did and they finally we should have our video by next week. I haven’t seen any of it yet so I’m really nervous because they didn’t give us a chance to edit anything out.

Also things are really expensive in this area, my friend paid 8k for her video so she had it immediately and we only paid 3k so I’m sure that has something to do with it, but 3k is still a good amount of money that we have already put out. But because my friend got her video so fast my mother hounds me everyday about it lol.

10 months and counting.
I had a friendor did our video, $500 for 5 hrs – includes 20min short edit and the rest raw footage. It was reduce price because we were only getting the raw footage for most of the day and we were on a budget. I paid in full and tipped $50.
The short edit delivered in a week as promised so we can show it in our second reception. But since then he has not reply my emails since Decemeber, in which he promised early Jan or Feb. What take him so long given that what’s left is just turning over the raw footages??
I haven’t call him, I guess I am too mellow.. sigh, what would you do?

We got our album a month after we ordered it (the pictures took about 2 months to arrive in the first place) and our wedding video took about 2 months.
