  • poll: How long did it take to get your pro album (vs. the timeframe set by your photog)?

    Got it when promised

    Got it a little late (1 week - 1 month after the date it was supposed to ready)

    Got it super late (2-6 months after the date it was supposed to be ready)

    Still waiting...

    Does the contract state 6-12 weeks from the wedding or 6-12 weeks from the time images are posted or the images are selected for the album? You might want to verify this with your photographer.

    I would wait until the 12 weeks since you got the photos pass and then shoot your photog a polite email about it. I know my photographer told us that the times she puts in her contract are the absolute most time she would need, and usually it’s a lot faster- and that she’s never gone over (which, talking to others who know her and hired her, I believe). It’s better business to say 3 months and have it done in 2 than to say 2 months, have something personal come up, and have it done in 3 instead- same timing, but it makes it early vs. late.

    That said, there’s always the possibility of a family emergency, illness, personal issues, etc. I think your photog should at least contact you if that’s the case. But 12 weeks past when you received the proofs seems to be a pretty reasonable timeframe.

    We were told 3 months, so I’m not sure what that means to you.  The waiting is tough!

    @Jaxx317: hmm yeah, well, i just approved our album mock up, so my waiting is just now beginning! So, it’s a little disconcerting that you’re waiting so long already! :/
