I’m sure your photographer will let you know when they’re ready. Be patient. At the end of the day photographers are humans too, and things happen from day to day that can back up their workload unexpectedly. Give it at least a week before you ask them. You don’t want to sour the relationship before the wedding. Why  are you “a little concerned” because they said you’d receive 50% off your order if you order in the first two weeks after they are posted?

I did the same thing with our e-pics.  I probably was really annoying to my photographer…but she had told me ‘1 week till they’re online’ they were online in 2 weeks, then ‘I’m mailing the cd to you today!’ and 2 weeks later my mom ended up going and grabbing it, haha!

I love her and understand that she’s suuuuper busy right now (which is great ,I’m glad she is so popular it reaffirms my reasoning for choosing her!) I think I’m going to try to take a 3 week long honeymoon so when I get back my wedding pics are done, LOL!!

@keepsmiling19: haha. Totally know what you mean.  It’s hard to wait! I tried to be super sweet about asking her what was going on with them, it’s just hard when you count down to 2 weeks being up…then it goes by and it’s like ANY SECOND SHE’LL CALL ME! tick tock tick tock…

I agree with what others are saying, but at the 3 week point I would send them a line asking them how they are coming along.  2 weeks for a portrait session is plenty of time, and at a week, late, you have the right to inquire.

My motto is under promise and over deliver.  Not sure why so many of these photographers are always “late.”  Just extend your turn around times that you promise.
