Let me start by saying we didnt want our photos to be all fake smiley and over happy. We both prefer the semi-smile kind of look.
I will also add that i was suffering really bad morning sickness right up until the photographer arrived but nonetheless my fiance and i love the way our photos turned out. Even if i do look rough in a few!
When we showed them to his mother she said she didnt like any of them because Mr B wasnt smiling much and alot of the photos are taken from afar. Dont get me wrong i appreciate critism but she couldnt say one nice thing about any of them and it really got me upset.
The reason i chose this phoographer was because i liked his arty style. If i wanted to have pics of us standing infront of the camera smiling, i would ask any tom dick or harry to take them.
We didnt pay for these photos he does them free of charge so we can get to know each other and feel comfortable around one another, but now im upset to think she wont like any of our wedding photos. She said, i hope your wedding photos wont be like this.
Yes there are some photos which could be better- you can see down my top in one of them but seriously are they really that bad?

Yeah, I think they look great, and if they’re the style you want and you’re happy with them, then hellz yeah! She’ll get over it. They’re not her pictures and she doesn’t have to look at them. Don’t let her rain on your beautiful pictures!

I actually love them. My favorite is the second one, where you both obviously look happy but aren’t over the top fake smiles. If she doesn’t like them, OH WELL. It’s not her wedding, and if you two love the photos, then I think that’s all that matters.

I think they look fine? I don’t get the problem!

thank you i feel a bit better now . We didnt want them to be ‘engagement’ pictures because we have been engaged a long time and it just seems a little weird to me. We just wanted some pictures of us together and individually that we could hang on our living room wall.
I dont know why her opinion bothers me so much. Maybe because i usually value what she says and respect her opinion.
I hate having my picture taken ( i suffer body dysmorphia after suffering anorexia a fair few years ago) and i guess i just wanted to be able to look at the pictures and feel proud and pretty (that might seem vain or shallow) and i did feel like that initially but now im not so sure.

What the hell is her problem? These are great–you guys are really adorable. I get what you mean about the types of pictures you didn’t want–our photographer had us do those (she called them “mom pictures”), and I hated all of them.

Well don’t let that worry you, you’re beautiful. And well done for smiling through the morning sickness!

Don’t worry, those pictures are great! Who cares if FMIL doesn’t like them?

I think they are amazing!

I love them! They are artsy and have their own style. And, you guys look great. My advice would be to not take your FMIL’s comments too seriously. You can aknowledge her not liking them (it,s ok) but if *you* like them it doesn’t matter.
To me, your photos are great .

I think they look awesome! As long as your and your FI like them, that’s what counts!

I think they’re great, and you look really good and cute in them! I bet your FMIL is like mine and doesn’t like anything but the traditional boring posed photos where you just stand next to eachother and smile.

You guys look happy and great in these photos. Just because the mom doesn’t like them doesn’t mean they’re not worthy! There will always be one critic and she’s the one! Let her be that “ONE”. LOL
