My engagement photos have been a nightmare. First time aroung the photos came back horrible so we had nothing for our STD. We had a deep discussion with our photographer and had a reshoot about 3 weeks ago. This time around the photos came back great (we were able to view them online). We were suppose to get a CD of the images in the mail and haven’t getten anything since the photos were posted on line 16 days ago. I have emaied and called all week with no response. I am holding off on ordering my invitations until we get the CD. I’m just wondering how long does it usually take to get images in hand after a shoot. I don’t want to keep bothering the photographer if this is the usual timeline.

Wow I’m so sorry you’re having these issues with the photographer! We got ours within two weeks and I think that’s probably normal timing if not sooner. It scares me that the person hasn’t even responded! I think you’re justified in bothering them

Our contract states 3 weeks. Did you guys put down a steep deposit or sign a contract already?

We paid a huge deposit and this is my frustration. It’s a family friend and my Fiance choice in photgraphers but her business practice is horrible and causing me un necessary stress. I’m upset we didn’t have photos for STD’s and now I’m running really behind on my invitation order. I’m going to try again later today but am seriously thinking about canceling our contract.

Sorry to hear of your photographer frustrations! I agree, I think you are justified in contacting the photog again, especially if a timeline is stated in the contract. After the photos go up online, I’d assume they’ve already been edited/cropped/whatever…it really shouldn’t be much effort/time to burn them all to a CD.
It took our photog about 4 weeks to get the photos ready, and once they went up online she confirmed our mailing address and we had the disc in hand within a week.
