- Wedding: April 2013
For starters, my FI hates, I mean HATES having his picture taken. We went on vacation to Costa Rica a couple years ago and I was limited to 1 good picture of us together per day. The rest he would make a fake smile, or not look at the camera, or pretend to be asleep. Funny? Sure, sometimes. Engagement pictures? Not so funny.
Our engagement pictures were on Friday and I’m really worried there won’t be anything useful. He was pretty much silent and/or sleeping the entire drive out to our photo shoot location (about an hour and a half). When we got there he refused to have anything to do with a wardrobe change. Refused to make small talk with the photographer. Pretty much gave me the death stare any time she had us look “lovingly” at eachother. He only smiled when she specifically told him to and almost resorted to making little “baby” noises like they do when they are trying to get a baby’s attention! It was so uncomfortable! It was like, OK you’ve made your point! If you just smile and have fun with it we will be done faster!
Has anyone else had an uncooperative groom-to-be? How did you pictures turn out??? I have to wait 4-6 weeks to see if we have anything halfway decent!
