I’m trying so hard to not be impatient since I know the editing process can be long, but it’s proving very difficult. Just out of curiosity, how long after your wedding did you get your professional photos back? And what form did they come in? My photographer uploads all the shots to a site called Zenfolio and has them password protected so that only me and whoever I give access can view them. I’m just too excited to see everything!

SouthernBride15: 6 weeks before they uploaded them on the website and put them on the hard drive for me. I paid for printing rights to my pics.

Mine took about 6 months but I got about 850 of them and she fixed brightness and edited all of them.

SouthernBride15: My photographer put up a sneak peek on her blog about 2 weeks after the wedding, and I got all of the pictures 2.5 months after.

About two months. But we got married right before Thanksgiving so with holiday chaos, I expected them to take a little longer. I got about 1000 perfectly edited pictures.

One week. Our photographer put them on a disk for us. Then again, she was a family friend and gave us a good deal for doing the photography plus my mom is a photographer so we had all photos and video as soon as we got back from our honeymoon

Our contract stated 12 weeks but ours took 13 weeks. We got 800 beautifully edited pictures on a disk.

Thanks guys! Y’all are making me feel better about my wait–it’s only been 2 weeks! I guess I just had my hopes up because my photographer said she’d put up blog post with a sneak peek for me on Wednesday, and now we’re 2 days later with nothing :/ Ah well, I know it’ll be worth the wait when I do get them!

SouthernBride15: My turnaround is typically 8-12 weeks, and how it falls within that range really depends on the time of year. The height of wedding season? Definitely closer to the 12 week mark. That being said, I don’t outsource and prefer to do all my editing in-house. I always try and get a few teaser photos up on Facebook/Instagram within a day or two. Ideally I’d blog it right away, but honestly my focus is getting full galleries ready to deliver to clients – so blogging usually takes a back seat until things slow down. I also hold off on blogging any weddings I plan on submitting for publication until after they’ve been submitted. For file delivery, images are delivered via digital download directly from the gallery. My own wedding photographer had a preview up that night, and we had our photos about 12 weeks later.

SouthernBride15: Our photog had sneek previews available 2 weeks after we got married. I know she posted some on Facebook on Halloween last year, and we were married the 17th. It was probably another week and some after that, that we got the disc with all of them (800+).
