When will my photos be ready?
This is probably the most common question! Everyone wants to know when their pictures will be delivered after their happy event. Needless to say, most want them as quickly as possible.
The answer to this could be complicated and very dependent on various factors, including how busy you are with other projects and the number of edits needed for their project.
To estimate how quickly you can deliver pictures:
consider how many pictures you might take
how many and how much post-processing
how many do you plan on showing them
how many they might want to purchase.
See? It’s not an easy answer. If you’re an experienced wedding photographer, you probably already have an idea of how long it usually takes you to deliver a project. It’s typically three to four weeks for most photographers.
Some photographers like to deliver a few images within a few days following the event to give their clients something to have and share.
Whatever timeline you give to a client when answering this question, be fair to yourself and be honest. Some photographers like to under-promise and over-deliver.
In other words, they pad the timeline a little in case it takes them longer than they anticipated if they finish early, great! The client will be, please. What you never want to do is over-promise and under-deliver.
