I am not a photogenic person at all. I look in the mirror and think all is good until I take a picture. I know we are our worst critics, but out of 10 pictures I will look good in 1 or 2. Anyone else? And do you care? or do you just take pictures anyway?

I am one of those bee that is thankful that photoshop was invented! I take terrible photos and usually don’t like them taken of me unless I know the will get photoshopped.

I can totally sympathize! I’m usually not photogenic at all, and I hate having my picture taken. Miraculously, our professional wedding pictures came out really nice. I’m still shocked that I don’t look horrible in them. I’m glad we picked a shorter photography package (we had them show up right before the ceremony) instead of having the photographers follow me around all day. I know a lot of people love to do “getting ready” pictures and all that, but it seriously would have have stressed me out.

I’m not photogenic at all, but was so excited about my wedding pictures. There was only I that I hated, 4 were so-so. Pretty amazing.

Man, you just described me. I’m glad our photographer was one of our good friends and KNOWS about my issue. It’s frustrating to see Darling Husband look like a damn model in every shot and then look at myself and go, “Bleh. Yep, just ruined another great photo.”
But there aren’t many of our wedding photos I dislike, because as stupid as it sounds, when you’re THAT happy and feeling the love, it comes through in the photos.

I hate pictures too! I almost never take pictures (the only couple pictures we have other than a few snapshots are our engagement and wedding pictures).

ME ME! I HATE having my photograph taken. Ugh. I seem to always take a bad picture. I close my eyes constantly, seem to always make a wierd ugly face, or just look bad in general. So, I try to plan out the picture by standing/sitting on a particular side that photographs better, focusing on how big I’m smiling (makes my eyes close too)…etc.
I’m going to be in panic mode at the wedding…so many flashes and knowing how much we are paying the photographer! What seems to work for me too is having at least 2 drinks. Yup. I look more relaxed in photos and less likely to close my eyes with the flash. I’ll be drinking in the limo on the way to the church…HA!

I look terrible in pictures. I look weird, odd facial expressions, or my body in a weird position, just altogether awkward. My smiles don’t appear genuine. My fiance and I don’t have many pictures together and it bothers me sometimes.
