for all those married gals who did videography...

hi all! i've been MIA after the wedding b/c DH and i've moved on to other "projects" haha... like buying a new house and getting a puppy! yeah, never a dull moment :-p


anyways, 7 weeks after the wedding, we still haven't gotten our wedding video yet. is this normal? what's the typical turnaround time for this? i feel bad bugging the guy about it b/c he's a friend/accquaintence and i know he goes to school, too. but his dad runs for a legit wedding videography company and we hired them (the company), not as a favor from an individual.


thoughts?

My videographer stated that his turnaround time is 7 weeks post-wedding.  However I have heard of people waiting many months for theirs.  Was the turnaround time stated in your contract?

We were told 2 months by our videographer...which it has been to the day...


and my videographer contacted me and told me it was almost finished, so at this time I am not worried....if another month goes by after having been promised 2 months then I would see what the deal was.


 


but can you send a friendly email "just checking in?"

It's been about 6 weeks since our wedding...they told us about 2 months also.  However, I do owe them two songs for the video.  We haven't gotten our photo proofs either (same company).

I got my video the next day but there wasn't much editing that needed to be done. One of my friends said their videographer said they would get the video (completely edited) back in about 10-12 weeks.

Jackieg definitely watch your video right away! This way you can let them know if you are not happy with the quality or anything else. Plus it's fun.

wow, 7 months! haha.


well i did a few friendly check-ins already. one about 3 weeks ago during a group dinner. he said another 1.5 weeks. last friday i emailed him to follow up and he said "soon"... when i asked if that meant early this week, he didn't respond. if this is normal, than i'm ok. just a little irked haha. the good news is our photographer was great and had all pics to us within 2.5 weeks!  thanks for the feedback all.
