Oh yes, been there!!! We had ours done last fall and when I got them back, I wanted to cry. I then had absolutely no motivation to even do my STD’s at that point after seeing the pics. It took me about 4 months of shuffling through them to pick one. I was so critical of myself when my Fiance thought I was the most beautiful thing in the world. I tried to get on that vibe with him and accept the compliments, but couldn’t. What I ended up doing was completely identifing my unflattering poses and tossed those aside for only my Fiance and I to enjoy. I then went through them again looking at the love that our photog captured… I finally found a photo that I loved and realized that I hated that my shirt was hanging out oddly and contacted my photog to fix it on 2 photos and I really started to love the photo. I needed to look at the moments and stop being so damn critical of myself because it was wasting time. My STD come out beautifully and made my Mom cry and everyone loved it because the moment was beautiful. I needed to just get over it and be excited for the wedding!

I actually just got back from doing mine 30 minutes ago. Towards the end of the session my photographer flipped through a lot of the pictures on the camera for me to see and I was so sad…I don’t feel that big… but, I did see two or three that I’m okay with…I just need about five to turn out ok and one that I love.
You just have to remember that your fiance loves you and how you look — and, we have a skewed sense of what we look like — so even though you think it looks bad, it most likely oesn’t, it’s just your perception of it. There are several bees who have posted on here that I look ridiculously like, and I think their pictures look amazing, but I’m extremely judgemental of myself and hate most of mine.

All true, i’ve looked at them over and over and I’m starting to feel better about them but it’s still a work in progress.
