Friday FAQ-How Soon Will You Get Your Pictures

Today’s FAQ is, “How soon will I have all of my images?”.

The short answer is 1-2 weeks for portraits/engagement sessions and 4-6 weeks for weddings.

The long answers is I grow thru and edit every single image and color correct and enhance the picture to ensure that each image looks great.  Some photographers only edit a certain number of images or only the images you choose for your album.  I don’t understand this practice.  Are you not supposed to look at the other 500-1000 images?  Shouldn’t they be the same quality as your album images?

For portrait and engagement sessions you can expect to receive 100-150 images.  Usually within a week of the shoot I will have a full blog post the includes some of my favorite images.  Within a week to two weeks of the session all of your images will be ready and uploaded to an on-line gallery that is password protected.  You will be able to download the images at full resolution directly from your gallery.  I do this for the portrait and engagement sessions because most of the time clients are anxious to get prints and don’t want to wait for a CD to be mailed to them.

For weddings you can expect to receive 600-1000 images depending on the number of hours and number of photographers.  Within one to two days I will have a sneak peak of the wedding on the blog.  This usually includes one to two pictures.  Within one to two weeks I will have a full blog post that includes some of my favorite images.  As a bride once myself, four to six weeks felt like FOREVER to wait for pictures, so hopefully the sneak peak and full blog post helps the anxiousness of the waiting.

Since every blog post has to have a picture here is a couple from a bridal shoot that I have yet to post!

That’s all for today’s FAQ…happy Friday everyone!
