I feel the same way about mine!  

I feel I look horrible in most pics, and I didn’t get any pics of me and my sisters, me and my brother , etc.   I’m so upset

@BartenderPlease:  *Hugs* we’re all our own worst critics. I am sure you looked lovely and HAPPY – that’s the main thing.

Weddings go by in a flash and I am sure that no one was offended when they weren’t picked to do photos. Many people hate photos.

Remember the happy memories – how your uncle bought the dress etc. Trust me, the memories will stick with him forever, and no photo could capture that. I’d just send him a pic of you in the dress.

I’ve seen a lot of brides on here do like a day after shoot, where you get dressed up and either hang out or trash the dress, you could do something like that-maybe your photographer will give you a deal for a couple of hours? -if you let them know you aren’t satisfied w/the photos, or you could do some searches in your area for photographers, I’ve seen many bees on here get excellent deals from those just starting out or who maybe are new to wedding photography, or even a friend or family member get some shots… it could be like a first look, only it’d be called 2nd look or something :)  I have not have mine done yet, but I know exactly what you mean by scouring thru the photos and having expectations.

just remember, you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend and that’s the most important part!

Truth be told, I gave my photographer a list of pictures that I wanted, but I didn’t get all of them.  The day goes by like a flash, so all the pictures you want, aren’t necessarily going to be taken due to other circumstances.  For example, there are very few of my hubby and me at the reception, because guess what, we were mingling with our guests; it would have been awkward for our photographs to make us step aside and take pictures.  Not having every moment captured sucks, but what can you do?!?

I cant say I’ve ever seen an ugly bride. They are kind of like newborns that way.

HUGS! I am really sorry you feel this way.  I am terrified I will feel the same way.  The Bee sometimes doesnt help because everyone has such dreamy photos and it feels like there is no way mine will come out that well.  But like others have said, we are our own worst critics!  I am sure you look lovely.  And I bet the photos of the kiss are adorable, even with his eyes open.  I bet it’ll be a fun story to tell years from now.  Maybe post some photos and let the bees fawn over you! :)

@BartenderPlease:  oh of course he did!   Which was the right thing for him to do lol.   But really, I do look horrible in most of them.   I’m either in the middle of talking or making a weird face lol

i might find someone to do some extra pics for me.

I have been wrestling with similar feelings ever since we got our photos. I have tried to keep in mind that we could have taken photos all day long but we would have never been able to talk with everyone and enjoy ourselves – there were too many people and not enough time.

I am also trying to appreciate the good photos that we do have, even if there aren’t as many as I would like, or particular shots I would have liked. One of my bridesmaids told me how her friend paid $$$ for her wedding photographer…who then ran away with the money, leaving her no photos at all, so that has helped me count my blessings!

Anyway, I wish there was something more I could say, but I’m sending you hugs and sympathy!

@BartenderPlease:  yea!   

And now I’m supposed to pick 50 for our wedding album!!! HA!  Plus pick ones for both sets of parents for an album

im also upset that the pictures of my parents and I turned out horrible!  We had them done outside and it was really cold, and you could see the tenseness in my body because I was freezing.
