Average wait time for photoshoot photos!
The time it takes to get your photos will vary depending on the amount of editing that needs to be done. Also we are not a huge company with staff. I am one person editing and working and pouring love into your photos. My schedule and also how many photos were taken on the day, if they were there all day from the moment you got ready all the way through to that first dance at 8pm, then they will have a lot of photos to edit and go through.
Typically it can average anywhere between 4-8 weeks. Of course photographers will try and get your photos to you as soon as possible, many will send some sneak peak photos of a selection that have been edited for you to view. However for the full edits, it can take some time (about 1-2 hours per photo), but it is important that what they are doing does take time, and it is usually worth the wait.
Why the wait?
Of course the excitement of seeing your beautiful photos makes us impatient and question what the hell we are waiting for. We have an in-depth article and photography infographic that shows what a photographer does here, the fact is wedding photographers spend more time editing photos then they do capturing them! In summary what you are waiting for is your photographer to go 100’s or maybe over a thousand photos binning those test shots, those awful shots, those shots where people have their eyes closed. Then there is the editing, cropping photos, adjusting the colour balance and creating that finished style you hired them for. There is a lot more work to be done once the photos are captured.
If you are having an album created too then this will take additional time too, once the photos have been edited they then need to be ordered and edited down to fit into an album, telling a story of your day and highlighting key moments and have the best selection of photos in there, once done it then needs to be sent away for printing too.
Be patient, it will be worth the wait
You have hired a fantastic photographer, be patient, it will be worth the wait and when you see your photos I am sure there will be smiles, joy, happiness and even some happy tears come in as you relive that special moment in your life that was worth capturing.
