The second to last one would be cute for a save-the-dates.

I think they’re adorable and awesome. You’re being really nitpicky, and it’s only natural because we are our own worst critics. 

Your makeup rocks. It’s like a subtle cat-eye effect done with shadow rather than liner.

Question, though. Why do you think a woman would have done a better job?

Well done on the weightloss! I think you look great in these photos! From what you’ve said I understand that these are the ones you are happy with from the 50 or so he gave you though?  I would be questioning why he didn’t touch any of them up? Is that in the contract? Will he touch the wedding photos up?

I don’t understand… why would one gender be a better photographer than the other?

What does gender have to do with quality?

I think the pictures look great! You look gorgeous!

@Hyperventilate & @Payless:  +1. Not quite sure why a woman would have done better work. Our wedding photographer was a guy, and he did an absolutely amazing job. I honestly can’t imagine our pictures coming out any better.

I think you are picking them to pieces, with no oood reason.

They look great to me, I don’t see any way a woman would have done a better/ more flattering job.. seriously, they are fun pics and i see no backfat!

I have to disagree. I’m sure all photographers regardless of gender want to make their subjects look as good as they can. That’s kind of the job of a photographer.

@amandaandzachwed:  I would have never noticed a problem with these if you didn’t bring anything up! They are beautiful! One thing that may help is that when a cardigan hits the hip like that (the widest part of the body for a lot of us) it can make you appear shorter/wider in that area compared to a longer “boyfriend” (what old navy calls them) cardigan that elongates and slims over that area. I have a really short torso and super long legs so I find tricks like these help balance me out!  Seriously though, you look lovely!
