  • Wedding: December 1969 - Montsalvat, Victoria

We got about 20 preview photos after 48 hours and then our full gallery of 1000+ photos after 2.5 months (which is what we’d agreed to as photographer was a friend and she’d also invoiced us for part of the photography as opposed to paying all in advance).

hissoon :  lol, we had everything back nine days after the wedding. I hadn’t even gone back to work from the honeymoon by then! We were lucky. Contract said 6 weeks.

4-8 weeks for a full gallery is pretty standard.

We got a preview a week after the wedding, about 20 photos. Full gallery came about 12 weeks after the wedding.

hissoon :  why would you pick a photographer you like less because of how many previews you get? You’ll eventually get all the photos so I’d definitely go with the person whose work you like the best.

I’d be patient and go with the photographer with the better pictures. She takes a longer time editing for a reason and 4 weeks is nothing in the grand scheme of things since you’ll be keeping and enjoying these photos for life.

hissoon :  We did a small wedding. Our photographer was with us for 2 hours doing family/group shots and also individual shots at one location. He walked around the park and got us many different backdrops so youd never know we did this in one place/short time. 

We got back over 200 photos (i cant recall, I believe closer to 250). He had them to us within 2 days.
