  • Wedding: September 2014 - Waldorf Astoria, Chicago

I hated my sneak peak photos and I had 10 or so to look at, I was almost in tears, I thought they were that bad.  But after we got ours back there were about 5 that I loved (and 32 that I posted to FB so they were good enough, lol), two of which are in our home framed now, and we used one for our wedding announcement in the paper.  I’ve been told by a lot of people who have done them that you are lucky if you get a few great photos!  I’m sure there will be plenty that you like 🙂  Don’t stress out about it.

LaurEliz:  I hope it works out for you, photographers aren’t looking at the sneak peak photos and thinking wow so and so looks really good in this photo, they are looking at things like the lighting and angles of the photo and while it might be unflattering to you, the photo might look really artistic and beautiful to the photographer.  I’m 5’9″ about 130lbs and there were definately photos they chose to put in the sneak peak that made me look a bit chubby when I’m not, but when you look at the whole photo you can see why they chose it.  Hope you are happy with the photos when you get them back!!

LaurEliz:  Sorry they are that bad.  Hopefully you got some good ones.  Is the company willing to do a re-do session if you are truly unhappy with them all?  I really hope you have good ones, especially since they are doing your wedding as well…keep me posted.  Do you know when you will see all the photos?

LaurEliz:  I am experiencing the same exact thing you are.  Our engagement photos were done the first of this month and I hate them so bad (one makes me look like an alien with a horse’s mouth..no human has a chin/neck like I somehow have in one of my sneak peeks she posted on her facebook page..luckily she didn’t tag me in it).  

I hate them so bad, that my fiance doesn’t even know we have some sneak peeks.  Another pic is a close-up of my ring but you can tell she did something to the image and the band is warped (IRL it isn’t).

I, like you, researched my butt off to find an excellent photographer…and I still believe she is…it just seems that our photos are the worse photos she has ever taken.

I am hoping beyond all hopes, that what we end up with will be leaps and bounds above our sneak peeks.  But at the minimum I think they will be useful to help get the wedding day photos the best they can be cause now we know angles, sides and smiles that don’t work. And my ultimate goal are the wedding day photos so I am looking at this as an opportunity to see what doesn’t work well for us in poses for the big day!

LaurEliz:  Just wondering if you got yours back and how you feel.  I got all of mine back (which weren’t really a lot).

I didn’t realize I was looking so old, had so many chins and that I guess I really do have a horse shaped mouth.  

I have thought of you often and hoped you feel better about yours than I do about mine.
