I feel sorry for your story! I think you should talk to your photographer about this, especially that it was mentioned in the contract.
My photographer (Seize The Day) was very quick and awesome, we were very blessed. He was our best wedding investment and he worth every penny. Our online gallery was up in 4 days (yes… 4 days after the wedding day) when we still had a LOT of mess around the house! About 10 days after, we got all High Res images in a CD. That’s pretty fantastic, i would say.

Someone should really feel sorry for my new wife and I. We went with a photographer who just does it on the side, and its been over 5 months! My wife does it on the side also, and does an amazing job, very meticulous editing, and it still only (haha) takes her 3 months to get the fully edited package back, book printed and everything. Usually her clients are pretty anxious by about 8-10 weeks, but she is good at giving status updates and being upfront with people. I’ve heard the really high end professionals can take up to 6 months to do their magic, but that is for top of the line quality. Our photographer hasn’t even given us an update, so I am contacting her today to demand the photos and asking for a discount. 5+ months is ridiculous, according to what I read above. Glad I read this…

Please read the post on Weddingbee Pro about why it takes so long to get photos back. I think Anne Rutheman wrote it.

Similar to some of you, I got extremely frustrated with my photographer (unfortunately I have to resort to naming names, Leah Kua) who kept dismissing emails even after weeks and weeks of waiting for a reply. 4 months in before we saw anything and then had to wait somemore to hear about the album. Extremely disappointed because we did so much research before finally booking her and let her run with things as much as possible. It got quite annoying seeing her regular posts on instagram of her own photoshoots or photos of her family, yet she could not find the time to reply. I understand that everyone has a life. But working in a corporate world, if I took more than 3 weeks to reply to an email, I would be out of a job. Especially given how quick the money was taken to pay for booking her.
