(ETA: I’m going anon for this post… )
We just got our album today and.. well, it’s not really the photographers fault… sort of. His pictures are really vibrant and colorful and crisp, but it’s ME I hate in them.
I’m a plus sized girl. Do you think my best angle is a side/profile shot? No. But almost 80% of the photos our photographers took of me and DH are from the side. In the same position. Forehead-to-forhead. 80%!!!
And it’s even the “wrong” side. Why the “wrong” side?
My hair, and the flowers on my dress, and my bracelet from my grandma, were all on my LEFT side… he took all of his photos (all except ONE) from the RIGHT. So there’s nothiiiiin’ goin’ on, on that side. My head looks weird because my hair is pulled around to the other side. Not to mention, I look gigantic because it’s yet another profile shot.
My dress looked amazing from the FRONT. I’ve got ONE PICTURE of myself in my dress, in a front-shot, and it doesn’t even include my legs. It cuts off at my hips.
Also, they decided to post a picture of my DH mid-sneeze. I have no idea why. He has this awful grimace on his face, it’s not funny or attractive at all, but they didn’t really spend a lot of time getting solo shots of him, so I guess that’s the best one they got and they decided “hey this look great!”
Again, my photographer and his assistant had great color and clarity in the photos… but DH and I look bloated and have weird expressions. “Just pretend we’re not here! Keep talking to each other!” Because of THAT, all we got were a bunch of pictures of us, mid-sentence, weird-faced, mid-blink, kind of slouching pictures. We weren’t “ready” for any of them. I understand trying to make the pictures look less posed and more natural, but there still should of been some kind of posing going on.
I’ve read it a MILLION times but I didn’t even take the advice. Make ABSOLUTELY SURE you go over EVERYTHING with your photographer on the day of your wedding. I didn’t know I had to specify all of these nitty-gritty details. I wish I had :\
