Since it has been a month since your last email exchange with him I think it is totally fine to email him again.

To answer your question, we received our photos 4 weeks after our wedding and our CD with all the photos a couple weeks later.

Totally fine to email him again.

I actually got mine back already and my wedding was December 15th!

We got ALL of our un-edited photos back about 3 weeks later. We got to choose 100 photos to be fully edited, getting those back next week.

I would email him again.  Its been long enough. 

As for when we got our pics back…it was between 9 and 10 weeks.  It was supposed to be 8 weeks, but he never got my final payment check because the address listed on his website was no longer his address and he never got his mail forwarded…who does that?

All our photos were uploaded to a online gallery 2 months after the wedding. We’re still waiting for our disc (which is ready), but it’s getting mailed with our proofbook that should be back from the printer soon. I would e-mail him and just ask, no harm in that.

Definitely email him back!

We got married on 11/10 and got our photos on a USB drive in the mail 5 weeks later.

it took about 3-4 months for ours to come back. we also got a CD with all of our photos and the copyrights to them. i would go ahead and email him again asking for an updated estimate of when to expect them.


eta- we did not receive any un-edited photos. i think that’s why it took so long. they edited all 1600 photos before sending them to us because we had copyrights so we didn’t have to buy pics through them. they wanted to make sure we could buy any 1 of those 1600 pics from any photo place and it would look awesome.

I think it’s definitely fine to email him again at this point.

This is something that should be spelled out in a contract (for any other bees reading that are still working on contracting a photographer). It seems to be one of the biggest annoyances.

My photographer’s contract has 14 days in it. I was really shocked the turnaround is that fast, but that’s what he puts in there. We get all the photos (1000+) color-corrected and 50 fully edited photos.

we got about 7,000+ photos in two dvds about 5 days after the wedding.  and that included about 350+ edited ones.  

we don’t have our wedding album yet because it took us soooo long to get back to him about which photos we wanted included in the album.  we finally sent that in on december 2012, so we’re waiting now.
