The short of it is that we love our wedding photos, think that our photographer was amazing and are very happy.
BUT MIL is a jerk about them. She is upset that there are not more family photos, which there are plenty of. She doesn’t like the way that she looked, thinks that there are too many photos of me (I was the freakin’ bride after all!), and that our photographer should have more ‘closeups’ not try and frame the photos nicely and capture the architecture (the place we took the photos is very near to my heart).
I have also had some other comments”Why did you guys do that?” “I would have never done that” “they’re nice but….”….. I’m just getting tired and feeling beaten down over it. It is to the point where I no longer what to share MY (okay ‘our’) wedding photos with ANYONE! My mother only seems to care about the photos that invole our nephew or sister (it has ALWAYS been about my sister). I tried showing DH’s grandmother, and she skipped through anything that was not of her grandkids, I asked her if she wanted any prints (I thought I would be nice and make doubles) she only wanted ones of her grandkids.
I know not everything is about me, and I probably sound like a brat. I suppose I was just excited for the day (and ALL that work) to be oooed and awwwed over once the photos came back, and instead I feel attacked and kind of like it didn’t matter that I was there…..
I may be hormonal, or stressing, or cranky I don’t know.
Just curious if anyone else feels the same way?
