I recently got married on September 30th - and had a "no phone" rule during the ceremony, and then during the reception nobody took any photos as the photographers were taking a bunch of everyone talking, dancing, etc.
After our wedding, our photographer said that we would expect to see the Highlights real shortly, and the entire album in 6-8 weeks as per our contract. It's been just about three weeks, and I haven't seen any photos at all - meaning I still have zero idea what I even really looked like on the day. I've subtly asked about when we could expect them and when, the good old "looking forward to seeing the highlights gallery!" But that was on Friday last week and I still have not heard anything since October 2.
Any suggestions on when would be an appropriate time to follow up and to be more direct? Photographers, what is your typical timeline for getting sneak peaks / highlights pictures out? People are starting to ask for pictures, and I still have no idea what I even looked like on the day - it was such a blur and I'd like to see even one picture!
