No longer than 4 weeks, usually less, delivered to your own personal online gallery that you can share with family and friends. All imagesd are high resolution print ready and can be downloaded.

I take Upto 6 weeks MAX to deliver the full gallery. It also depends how much wedding I have done previously and how much gallery's I am already editing. I also provide express delivery at an extra cost, this allows your wedding to be placed as a priority.

The turnaround time for wedding photos can vary depending on a few factors, such as the photographer's workload, the complexity of the editing process, and the number of photos that were taken. However, most wedding photographers aim to deliver the final edited photos within 4-6 weeks after the wedding day.

It's important to keep in mind that this timeframe is an estimate, and some photographers may take longer or shorter depending on their specific process. Some photographers may offer rush delivery options for an additional fee if you need your photos back sooner than the standard turnaround time.

It's a good idea to discuss the expected delivery timeframe with your photographer before the wedding day and to include the expected delivery date in your contract. This will help you plan when to expect your photos and avoid any potential miscommunications or misunderstandings.

Ususally I woulld have your photos and videos back within 4 weeks maximum during peek times but I have been known to be able to return your whole gallery of photos within 2 weeks. because this will vary with who you book, it would be best you check with your photographer on this one but I'd say 6 weeks absolute max wait time. If you are planning an event around the delivery, I would suggest you defientaly tell your photographer so they are aware of the deadline and can ensure this is agreed on before singing the contract.

Every Professional Photographer should have a time frame they give to their couples. We have a four week turn around for editng from our Couples date. I recommend it shouldnt take more then 60 days for Stills to come back. Video is differnt as production for this Medium can be more time consuming.

I have always strived to deliver my clients with a sneak peak within the first few days, so that they have something to share. And I've aimed to deliver their full online gallery within 6 weeks of their wedding date. That being said, there are times during peak wedding season where this has been difficult to achieve due to the number of weddings taking place and the shear volume of editing work. So a realistic  timeframe that you could expect would be between 6 - 8 weeks from the day you were married. Hope this helps you and best of luck with your post-wedding event. Kay

It depends on what part of the process you want access to your photos. We try to turn around in 2 to 4 weeks. We say 2 weeks to see the proofs and the gallery before full colour grading. Then we will find out your best picks for the main grading and we promise to have your photos completed by 4 weeks. 4 Weeks is about the average out there. 

We had a rush job of 1 week once, we charged accordingly but, it can be done.

I personally take around three weeks but send sneaky peeks through as I edit. It's nice to have a few professional photos to post on social media straight away.
