I think you look beautiful! Out of the e-pics, I think you look best in the second and last one. I think the second one especially, you look really slim there. and I LOVE those red shoes πŸ™‚

oh, and that dress looks gorgeous on you! if you look like that on your wedding day you’ll have nothing to worry about!

@augustbabe05:  I so understand! I felt the same way about my own engagement pics…but you know what? It’s just us! Everyone else thought they were great. I think it’s just us putting a more magnified scope on ourselves. 

I really like yours, actually! My faves are probably 2 & 3…and your outfit is cute too! πŸ™‚

Those look awesome, your outfit was great! If you are nervous about it, talk to your photographer, there are poses that will be more flattering to your figure and make sure they know you are worried about it so they can minimize that by using the most flattering poses and angles.

I like 1  2 3 and 5. Your curves are kicking!

I think some of the problem with 4 is the angle of the camera

@augustbabe05:  You look beautiful. Stop being harsh on yourself. The 4th picture down is the only one I was not stunned by and thats just because I personally dont like how hes squishing your assets (my fiance and I have a shot like that and his chest crushes my boobs LMAO). You have a stunning smile and I adore your dress, Id be proud to show these off.

First you look beautiful and I agree with the PP that photo number two is fantastic (even my Fiance looking over my shoulder agrees).

I am going to take a moment to quote Tyra and say work on your angles. I definitely think that there are some angles/body positions that work to your disadvantage and advantage. For example complete sideways shots like photo number three are no-no’s for me (size 14).

Play around in a mirror and see how you like your body the best.

@augustbabe05:  Honey, are you with someone you love. If you are than it IS perfect. You could be in a cardboard box and still have it look perfect, its the love the photos represent that matters and you two look so in love.

I had the same worries/issues! I’ll be 100% completely honest and say YES, there are a few wedding pictures that I was like, “EW omg, no one else can see these.” That’s me being totally honest. The positive side to my sharing is there are at least 2 AMAZING shots that I LOVE for every 1 that I don’t like. I seriously have some where I’m like, “Holy hell, who is that? She is hot!” It can happen. πŸ™‚ I’m not saying you’ll be 100% happy with your pictures, but really, who is? Everyone has something they don’t like about themselves since we are our own worst critics.

Tips — Get your photographer to take some where they are above you and you are looking up. I find that makes me look much smaller and my double chin is gone! πŸ˜‰ At least having a couple like that made me happy. Also, angles! Straight-on pictures just don’t do me justice. Unfortunately most of our family pictures are like that out of necessity, but that’s okay. What’s also really funny is that my waist looks tiny even in the pictures I hate. Gotta love the materials of wedding dresses. πŸ˜‰

You are beautiful and your pictures are beautiful. I also LOVE your red shoes – so hot! Rock your wedding day, honey, you won’t regret it. Your confidence and the love between you guys will be apparent!
