Waiting on wedding photos… 😪

When did you get your photos back from your photographer?
My photographer is inexperienced only has done a few weddings, but we got a good deal on his wedding package.

My wedding was September 30. He said it would take a few weeks… my grandma told me he took 3000 photos on top of the video he has to edit… I’m losing my patience 😬 He text me the other day and he said they would be done soon .. but like how long is soon ? 😬🫠

    It's been less than a month. Typical turnaround for professionals is 6 weeks to 3 months. Like you said, he's starting out so his workflow won't be as polished as a professional so please be patient with your photographer. It's something you should have accounted for when you hired a non-professional. Many photographers won't even give you 1000 photos so the fact that he's editing a video and promising you 3000 photos in around a month's time is an amazing deal.

    My guy said 1 month but i'm going to give him time.

    If your guy is new to the wedding scene, he probably is taking his time to make sure your photos are perfect.

    We were married October 1 and our photographer told us max 6 weeks (other than the sneaks we got the next morning). Looks like we’re next in her editing queue which is exciting!
    For our video, that could be up to 3 months

    We had our wedding on August 13th and we are still waiting...

    Contract says 12 weeks and we just passed the 10 week mark yesterday. I've had steady communication with photographer and she says they will be ready very very soon so I'm hoping next week! The photos were unlimited but not sure how many we will be given. It's been so so hard to be patient!

    Hope yours arrive soon!

    Ours took 7.5 weeks for 1200 photos and this was march-may 2021 not during the busiest season anyone in the industry has ever had. It hasn't even been 4 weeks - I get it's hard to be patient but you do not want this rushed. For that many photos AND a video, even 6 weeks would be quick and 6 weeks seems to be the general expectation for just one of those.

    Our photographer took 6 weeks but I know multiple photographers in my area that say up to 12 weeks. Our photographer did provide us with a sneak peek of about 30 pictures two days after the wedding!
