I actually don’t think you had a “problem”. That is a really standard time frame. I honestly think that you fell short by not communicating your desired time frame to your photographer. Editing a full wedding can take 30-40 hours of work, and once you factor in all the weddings going on every weekend during peak season, business responsibilities, meeting with clients, blogging, advertising, website upkeep, etc, that is actually a really reasonable time frame. I think most people just don’t realize that because they aren’t photographers!

The slideshow actually sounds “cheap” not expensive. 80 photos, fully edited plus put to music, exported, burned, designed, etc… can easily take 10 hrs of work and 40% of the price goes straight to uncle sam….

That being said, it’s a VERY good tip. You should def. know what your photographers time frames are. Some are faster than others, but every photog is different and the main thing is that you like the end product. You can’t really judge “time frames.” (unless obviously you have a need which should be communicated before hand, i.e. an upcoming reception for those who weren’t there.) I’m sure Michelangelo and van Gogh took different amounts of time, but still both created masterpieces…
