I think it’s too soon…it hasnt even been two weeks and you’ve already emailed once.

Most photogs take 4-8 weeks. It’s way too soon to be bugging them!

It’s pretty soon, I wouldn’t worry until after 4-6 weeks out.

I’d wait a few days! That being said, my contract stated 90 days and it’s been….108..I should probably check on that

I understand being excited to see them, but I say way too soon to bug him (again).  Did he give you an ETA of when to expect them?  I had friends get married on 10/13 and their photog said mid-November is when they will likely get their pictures.  That seems reasonable to me.

I know the urge to ‘bug’ them to see some pictures is killing you, because I feel the same way. I’ll be married 3 weeks this Saturday, and I am dying to see just one picture from my photographer. I am hoping she’ll post a couple pictures by this weekend. But most photographers take 4-8 weeks for pictures, so I wouldn’t email again.

Way too soon!  You could email her and ask them when she expects they WILL be up but I wouldn’t badger her to rush the editing process.  You could ask if she hads any sneak peaks to tide you over?

my fiance is a wedding photographer and it takes him 30 days plus to get through someone’s photos. It is definitely too soon to bug him about the pictures. I would email or call to find out when he or she expects the photos to be done. Was there a timeframe quoted in your contract? keep in mind you probably aren’t the only wedding the photographer is trying to edit as well.

I’d give the photog a month minimum – with 4-6 weeks being likely (unless they specified some time frame for you).

It hasn’t even been two weeks. I’d try to chill and not bug the photog. Patience is a virtue…
