How quickly will we receive our wedding album?

Several factors will determine how quickly you’ll get your wedding album.  The first factor: how quickly you select your photos for the album!  Some wedding photographers will give you a deadline for choosing your photos to keep the process moving.  Some will even create an album design and select the photos themselves, and then offer you the opportunity to make revisions.  Once the photos are selected, the album design process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, depending on the number of revisions you want.  After you’ve approved the album layout, the pages are printed and then assembled into book form.  This can be time-consuming—anywhere from a few weeks to a few months—because much of the work is done by hand.  Add in the time it takes to ship the product, and you can estimate how long it will take to receive your wedding album.  Also keep in mind that with the arrival of autumn, couples tend to take a strong interest in getting their albums completed in time for Christmas.  If your wedding photographer is flooded with long-awaited photo selections from 25 clients in mid-October, it will take him or her longer to get the work done.  Album manufacturers also face an increase in submissions this time of year, so the best advice for getting your album quickly is to select your photos as soon as possible after the wedding.
