Aside from engagement and wedding photos, do a lot of photos exist of the two of you together?
I ask because I see so many posts where people have to pick ‘one of many’ favourites, or things like that. I can name two occasions in which photos have been taken of me and my SO. We’re also not the type to take selfies. So in over 2.5 years, there are probably…10 photos of us together, 8 of them being from my convocation 1.5 years ago. I didn’t think it was that uncommon but now I’m wondering.
So how about you? Are you selfie people? Do your friends take a lot of photos at social gatherings? Have there been a lot of photo ops at family events? Tell!

My guy HATES having his picture taken so, no, after almost 7 years together, not very many.

Very few. He hates taking pictures, though I usually mean to ask on holidays and special occasions… and then I forget. So it’s half my fault.

Not a lot. Some from the vacations we have been on but that was the main reason I wanted engagements pictures. I just wanted nice pictures of us!

@winstonchurchill: I think a good amount. We started dating when I got my first smart phone. So the novelty of the good camera always with me and new relationship ( also fbook had just really caught on in our group). We have photos from visiting relatives, weddings, vacations (at least 15 trips so far) and professional dating/ engagement and soon to be wedding and honeymoon. As I get away from the fbook world and stopped posting stuff we do- I noticed I take a lot less photo selfies of us. I have always been the type to send a pic of my ering instead of just a text saying I got engaged though so I love photos more than words.

- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
I’m having a tough time finding good pictures of my FI and I together for the slideshow.
6 years together; probably 8 to 9 decent pictures. The ones where I’m posing for the camera while he deflects the camera by covering with a beer bottle doesn’t count as a picture!
We don’t even have any engagement pictures, lol.

Oh he hates having his photo taken so we only have a few. We got some good ones at our wedding so that makes me happy lol.

We hardly have any together! I’m so glad I’m not alone! He hates taking pictures too so any we do have he is intentionally making a stupid face :/ I avoid taking pictures because of that.

We have quite a bit. I’m kind of a camera whore, so I take pictures a lot.

We are both prefessional photographers. So our photos are much better than “selfies”. We set up tripods, flashes sometimes, pro cameras and do photoshoots. When we go on hikes we take a few, but we are usually at famous or gorgeous locations. We went to Lake Louise the other day and took a full portrait of ourselves. We also work for a photography company so we have had our portraits done four times for training other staff. I think we are an anomoly though.

We have a ton. Date nights, vacations, holidays. I try to sneak one in whenever I can! He hatesssss taking pictures, he does it for me 🙂 Every year I make him an album of our year together and he always says that he is happy that he has something to look back on.

He literally bolts when someone whips out a camera and he HATES facebook…therefore I haven’t even seen most of the pictures that have been taken of us haha. I have a feeling that there will be a lot more now that we are having a baby…how do you bolt from a picture with your child?! haha

We have scrapbooks FULL of pics of us since freshman year of high school. Hundreds but I love it! I look back and remember the times I would have forgotten without them. I’d say we have over 1000 pics of us and haven’t DVD. Had our wedding yet lol definitely not selfie people but we go out at college a lot and everyone loves taking pictures, then we have huge families that take pictures, and my BFF takes great photos so she takes some of us for fun.

We don’t have very many, and it’s not because we hate cameras or pictures of ourselves, but because for some reason we can’t both make our faces work at the same time for a pleasant smile, lol. One of us looks worse than the other always. Here’s hoping that our phtographer can work her magic for our engagement shoot and the wedding. (:
