    I was worried about this too with our photographer, too! We had out engagement photos taken in the beginning of September and I got them back end of October – about 6 weeks I would say. I did contact her at about the 1 month mark to ask for a timeline.

    As long as you aren’t demanding, I don’t think it will make you look like a bridezilla. Just a quick email to inquire as to when they will be finished – and say you are anxious to send out your save the dates or annoucements with those pics or something.

    Is there any information in the contract about when to expect completed photos? My contract says to be completed within 8-10 weeks, but our Engagement pictures were done in about 4 weeks. Check your contract…if the timeline has passed I would contact him. If not, I would wait until it has.

    Nothing wrong with sending a friendly email just checking in to see if you can get a timeframe. Engagement pics should not take that long to turn around.

    Definitely check your contract.


    Other than that – a friendly email that just says you’re checking in wouldn’t cross a line.

    If you ask in the manner you are asking here that you are excited to see the outcome could he send you some teasers if they aren’t ready yet and ask for an approximate timeline. Its just a question not bride zilla at all

    I am a wedding photographer myself and I know how swamped you can be with work. 


    But, I always stick to my promises and I tend to set strict dates so the bridal couple knows what they can expect. 


    I would send a friendly email inquiring that you understand hes busy but asking whether he has any time frame in mind. I would personally reply such an email within seconds!
