For everyone here;

first I understand some frustration, I don’t think you should wait more than 8 weeks for the photos, and this is coming from a photographer.

Now, Keep in mind I am a Rodeo photographer so the ‘busy season’ bit ain’t gonna work on me.  I shoot 4 day events at a time from 7am to usually about midnight.  By the end of the weekends I usually have about 30,000+ photos to go through and send off.  Which those photos are up and gone within 8-12 weeks because of the high volume.

Followed by a week of newborns, engagements, maternity.. and everything else I’m booked for.


It isn’t just ‘slap some files on a drive’.
When I send off proofs or a couple sneak peak shots, its because not all of them are DONE and I want you to know I am working hard and haven’t forgotten you. That doesn’t mean right at that minute I am prepared to saddle up and ride out. There is a lot to do yet after you get those couple pictures.

If you did not want editing/asked them not too, then you have NO reason to still be waiting.  THAT is a situation where you put the pics on something and send them off within a week or two.

I’ve put a cd in my computer, started loading and gone off to do another shoot, come back and it’s loaded.  Time management is a BIG thing in this industry and some people don’t understand that.


I’m very sorry about your wait, and I hope all your pictures are worth it!!!

  • Wedding: June 2013

We were married in June.  The photog emailed us on our honeymoon (2 weeks) said she was about ready to mail and wanted our home state address.  Gave it to her and we’re now going on almost 2 months.

After about 2 weeks after she first said she was ready to send we emailed and she checked her tracking and wow found out they had been sent back to her…err.  So then she sent them off again…and it’s been another 2 weeks and still no photos.

DH msgd her and she said Tuesday.  Fingers crossed.  She did say she put something special in for us.

Sidenote: we did not have ANY editing.
