How long did it take you to get your pictures back from your photographer? I’m trying to be patient but it’s really tough! I keep hearing that things are supposed to be faster nowadays, with everything being digital. But I also know our photog is editing our pictures, which is time-consuming and will be totally worth it, as he helps us look our best!
We purchased a package with a combination of the traditional stuff (album, some prints) as well as all of the digital images on CD/DVD. Anyway, I am just curious as to what the typical wait time is like before I start bothering our poor photographer. I don’t want to be THAT girl. 🙂

Our online gallery was posted just over two months from our wedding date, and we got our DVD shortly after. I’ve heard it varies from 1-3 months to get your edited photos back, and then of course, more time fort album design.

OH heck, we could see the highlights 2 weeks after the wedding and had the DVD less than a month afterwards.

It doesn’t hurt to ask what the expected wait time is for you to get your pics. Its not bugging them if you just ask. You can email them something simple like “thank you for photographing our wedding, just curious as to when we should expect the photos. Thanks!”. Then I wouldn’t ask again til like the day or 2 before the timeframe. I’m sure they’d love to keep you updated, but normally the more time photographers spend in emails, the longer it takes them to finish your pics.
Usually its about a month, but it really depends on the photographer. I’ve heard people waiting between 3 weeks & 3 months, so it varies a lot. Photographers should get you the pics as soon as they can, without jeopordizing the quality & it does take a lot of work. Plus they still have other jobs to do, but I would think it would be soon considering your wedding says in March. Yay 🙂

We got our “sneak peek” a few days after the wedding (fun surprise on our honeymoon!) and then the photos were up on our photographer’s website about 3 weeks after the wedding. We got the disc with all our photos in our package, which came about a month after the wedding. We just got the final album (yeah, I know, it took forever), but I didn’t mind since we already had the files to print as many as we wanted. I’m sure I could have gotten the album sooner, I just kept forgetting to call our photographer with the changes I wanted to make after he designed it.

We got a teaser (about 20 photos on his blog) about 10 days after the wedding. We are scheduled to get the online gallery this weekend … then 250 prints and the DVD a couple of weeks after this. So all in all, we should have everything in about 2 months! I know! The waiting is HORRIBLE!!!

We had our album and CD a little over a month after the wedding. And that was during the busy season in June!
