I got married July 9, and got our disks and album back at the beginning of Sept.  That seems a little long.  What did it say the timeline would be in your contract?  Doesn’t seem like a good sign that they’re not responding to you.

Woah, we got our proofs 3 weeks after, and our photog is on the newer end of the wedding game! Plus I know she had another couple of shoots between the wedding and when she put our pictures up, so she obviously made it a priority (which we sincerely appreciate!).

Did your photographer give you an estimate on time? We wrote a time estimate into our contract before we signed, plus she verbally confirmed that time frame to my husband’s dad at the wedding.

I’m also curious, did your photog give you a timeline?  Our contract with her stated that we’d get online proofs within 6 weeks and the hi-res DVD within 8.  She delivered exactly on time, despite being wicked busy.  We got married on 9/5, got a preview slideshow within 48 hours, got the proofs online on Oct 15, and just got our DVD this past Wednesday.  If I were you, I’d definitely be irritated — that is quite a long time, in my opinion.  I’ll echo what the others said — did your contract give a timeline?

I think 12 weeks is at the upper limit of reasonable. I think our contract states 8-12 weeks. I’d be more annoyed that he isn’t getting back to you.

Being able to get 90 pics done in 2 days is….crazy. Are they edited? Or just slapped up on their FB account? Any way you slice it, they should be getting back to you about a time frame. From the 10 threads like this I see a week, I think getting a timeline in writing is the #1 question we aren’t asking as brides! This is the busiest time of year for a lot of photogs, but that seriously doesn’t excuse not having photos from multiple months ago released to clients.

2 days for me!!  We got married in MX on a Wednesday, did our TTD on Thursday and our photog met us at the airport on Saturday with about 130 edited/retouched prints + all pics taken on DVD.  Had the slide show waiting for me via email when we got home on Saturday too 🙂

This post is making me feel better about my pics! My contract says I will have my proofs within a month. It has only been three weeks now, but I was a little bummed to not have mine yet because it looks like my photographer generally gets proofs up within 2 weeks (why yes, I have been stalking his website!).

I would be calling them! I doubt there is anything wrong with them but they need to get them done and get them to you! That seems like way too long. We got ours around 4 or 5 weeks after the wedding.

Our photog told us 6 weeks…. I’m patiently (or not-so-patiently) waiting… (with no sneak peek pics) 

Try communicate with him via FB and/or email – maybe they’ll be more prompt answering that way.

we got married on 9/18, had our online proofs 10/18, and will have our cd/dvd hopefully by 11/18.

Everyone is different. Check your contract, it should have a delivery time on it. If it doesn’t, then you should have asked for one to be on it because without one, you are at your photographer’s mercy.

ours took about 6 weeks for them to send us our proofs on a CD but he orignally said 3 to 4 weeks.  He did tell me he was very backed up when he told me 3 to 4 weeks so I wasn’t expecting it back that fast.
