It took our photographer about 3 and a half weeks to get ours done.  We got 200 photos, fully edited to magazine quality, on DVD with full rights to print ourselves.

It took like a couple days to get the proofs and once we stated which ones we wanted we were sent them right away… maybe a week total from the shoot date?

@Nevahsatisfied:  re: contract

If you break the contract, you should only lose whatever deposit you’ve already paid.  Since they are being difficult and photography is so so so so important, I would suggest that you consider if you can afford it that you forfeit your deposit if the e-pics are not just perfect and find someone else.  One of my good friends got married in October and by August she realized that she really did not like her photographer.  She lost over $1000 by canceling and hiring someone else (who was also more expensive), but for her, it was worth it to not have that stress. Now that she’s married and she’s seen her wedding pics, she is very happy with her decision.  You need to have a good relationship with that photographer.  If you feel negatively towards him, it will show in your pictures, and that’s not good. If you get the e-pics back and they are lovely, then maybe you can put this behind you and keep your photographer because you are confident in the quality of the work.

GET OUT NOW.  Cancel that contract.  Find someone new first, though, just in case.

I second other’s advice to cancel. We broke off a contract with our original photogs and while we did lose the deposit and had a very awkward moment when we told them we wanted out, now we are so happy with our new photographers and have no question in our mind they will capture our wedding perfectly. We are on a very tight budget and I took the lost deposit out of my savings (ouch), but in the end, totally worth the peace of mind.

I think cancelling should be your last resort.  You should voice all these concerns with your photographer at the meeting and see if you get a response to your satisfaction.    Of course this all assumes you like the photography and end result.

2 months isn’t unheard of, and although it’s crappy business practice, overpromising seems to be very common here lately, so you are not alone.  Try to understand why they took so long.  Also, epics tend to take lower priority to wedding pictures when studio’s get busy, it’s just how it works.

We’re doing our e-pics about 6-8 weeks before our wedding and our photographer said we would have them in time to include them in our wedding day.

It took us over a month to get my proofs back from our photographer, after being promised it would only take 2 weeks.
