I would just email them again. Maybe they are out of town, or had a family emergency they had to take care of unexpectedly?

@STBSchmidt: As a rule, it’s really never a good idea to go bridezilla on anyone who a) has your money and b) has your photos. Is this photographer full time or part time? They might have a lot of work they’re trying to finish up if they’re full time, or not enough time to get them to you if they have another job. A week and a half to two weeks is pushing it for many photographers and you’re not even at 2 weeks. I’d say be patient, shoot him an email letting him know your Save-The-Date Cards are only on sale until Monday and see what response you get.

@STBSchmidt: If you’re not picky about having your pick of the litter for an STD photo, you can just try asking for a couple of teaser photos that he thinks are the best from the shoot and that you might be able to get digital files of right away.

I have done this for clients in the past when they are pushing to get things out ASAP. They know their blog of images will be up within days of the shoot, so if they want to use one of those photos (which I consider to be the best) without seeing the entire selection, I’m more than happy to rush them one digital file for their save the dates. This works well because usually the client’s taste is VERY similar to mine. Expecting the whole selection in under two weeks is too soon, even in the off-season. Good luck!
