I just got my pics back and while I love them there are a few things I wish I would have done differently.  They are kind of random though.  hahahaha.  For example, I am 5’2 and my fiance is 6 foot and I like that I am tiny next to him, but I wore really high heels the whole time, so we dont have any pics of me being little with him. hahahaha.  (told you random)  Also, I tend to wear my hair in ponytails a lot, but I kept my hair down the whole time, which is fine, but I wish I had more casual pictures of me and how I look day to day.  I also wish we would have been a bit sillier.  I was so nervous that we wouldnt get any good pics for our STD or wedding announcements that I feel like I didnt act totally like myself……

So moral of the story is be yourself, relax, and have FUN!!!!!  hahahaha

I also wish FH and I could have been a little more silly in our pictures. Although I was giggling in most of my pics, it was nervous giggling, haha.

Also, if you are wearing your hair down, and its longer, make sure its always sitting nice on your shoulders. There are many pics where I wish I had readjusted my hair.

our best photos were where we were playing around with each other, or just talking and smiling at each other, rather than at the camera.

i regret wearing a pair of jeans that were frayed on the bottom just slightly (im short, i step on them when i wear flats!) and you could see it. there were a handful of photos i didn’t like because of that.

I just wrote on another bees wall about clothing.  (Im all over the engagement pics today!)  I bought this awesome blue dress that I thought would look great because the color was so vibrant, but when I got my pics back I realized that it was kind of short.  Not really the look I was going for!  hahaha.  It didnt ruin all of my pics, but there were definitely some from the side where I feel like my thighs ruin the whole thing. hahahahaha

Laugh!  We did hardly any ‘smile’ photos he just kept telling us to laugh and our pictures turned out awesome because of it.  Your smile looks so much more natural when we laughed.

These were how mine turned out if you are interested:

We had glasses of champagne, that we also used as props.  Our pictures were taken in a champagne bar, it definitely help ease my nerves!
