Hi, I got our professional photos back and I both … love them and hate them. I love how happy we look, and so in love, and the day was gorgeous. I actually quite like my dress and everything about it. But my chin OMG. I want to cry when I look at it. I think we are our own worst critics, but still. I hope you’ll like at least some of them and talk me off the ledge 🙂
Here is a sample of the first 20 that were ready

@helena31: Uhhh, yea you are your worst critic cuz Gurl you look GREAT!!! LOVE your dress. But I do understand how you feel, I thought my arms looked huge in most of my pics as well but I just addressed my issues with my photographer and he took care of it. If it bothers you that much you should have your photographer do the same for you. 🙂

You look beatiful! And you both look so happy. We really do judge ourselves too harshly.

Thank you, bees. I might start bawling at work. This has been eating me up for a few weeks, so finally saying it out loud and hearing back these wonderful things feels almost … cathartic. I guess I have no idea how they look to outsiders, those who don’t have this negative image of myself that I have in my head.

Oh honey! I really feel for you, as I hate pics of myself (like, every single pic of me ever, basically) but you look GORGEOUS in those photos. Truly beautiful. Try to let it go, because I promise it’s just in your head. Everyone else sees the lovely woman that’s the REAL you when they look at those pics!

@helena31: I am nervous about some perceived body issues of my own, and I want to thank you for putting yourself out there! You are so beautiful, and you and your husband look SO happy! You have nothing to worry over!

@helena31, these pictures of you and your DH are so joyful and beautiful. You are absolutely radiant! Your waist looks so tiny in your dress, and I love your hair and veil. Congratulations and I hope that every day of your marriage has the same amount of joy and love as I see in your pictures.

You look so lovely and happy, and can I just say I am LOVING your bouquet, btw? Love your photos, they’re beautiful!

I think your pictures are great 🙂
I hate every picture of myself too, so I understand how you feel. It seems to amplify all the flaws that I already know exist. No one else seems to see it that way though – at least that they admit to my face, lol.
