Why can't I get this out of my mind?

@mylittleviolett:  I have never put a lot of faith in photography…it is merely an attempt to ‘capture a moment’ when that moment might have different meanings and perspectives for every single person. I prefer my ‘moment’ to be in my own mind. I look at pictures of my babies now and they do nothing but conjur my own memories and ‘pictures’ in my own mind. They don’t need to be perfect because I have a memory.

I don’t love all of mine either. The photos are awesome but I don’t really like the way I look. I also focused on the (like 3 photos) my photographer didn’t get. Honestly though in a few months this won’t matter as much to you as it does now while it’s all still really fresh in your mind. People usually only print 5-10 photos out to put in their homes anyway. One good photo is all you really need to put somewhere special in your house. Trust me I printed out 8 of mine and still haven’t put them in a frame… a year later hehe.

Also you could have a trash the dress session if you want a few more pretty photos! We did this just so I could get a few photos with my son because we didn’t get a single photo of the 3 of us on our wedding day. I didn’t trash my dress  I just wore it in the park… only suffered a few grass marks.

Oh and… I rarely even look at the photos of my decor and such unless I’m trying to help someone on here.

Hate mine too so I don’t have any advice on how to deal w it.  our wedding was in Dec and im still irked by it. we don’t even have one full length photo if us standing next to each other in typical bride groom stance.  Wtf? All the planning, shot lists and DOC didn’t help .  Also only 2 pics of BMs and I , none of just me and GM and none of BMs w DH.  None of my mom sbd I except during a special Dance and walking down aisle :(.

@mylittleviolett:  i’m not underestimately your disappointment in your photos, but how much did your photography package cost?  what is in your contract?  did you discuss with your photog your disappointment in the photos?  did he offer to fix or help?

@mylittleviolett:  I totally understand where you’re coming from as I feel the same way. we did get some good ones but as far as creativity goes…nothing special over here LOL. I just resign to love my damn pics because it’s done and some of them really show the love between my husband and myself And that’s all that matters to me. I’m sure you have some really great photos 🙂 Put a smile on that pretty face

Maybe do something lik a honeymoon shoot? Disney and many other resorts offer them. You can even take your wedding attire if you wish or clothes like for an engagement shoot. It wont be the same but its a second chance.

I understand how you feel! I have regrets on the pictures that we didn’t get. I wish I had more pictures of me and the girls. We didn’t have time before the wedding to take any. We only have 1 picture of our whole bridal party together. It was really hot that day and 2 of them kept complaining so it just went really fast. 

Also, I really don’t like how I look in a lot of them because I had so much make-up on (no make-up trial because the girl didn’t have time before). 

I don’t regret our photographer. She was amazing. But I wish that I would have made a better list of pictures to take (family). But you can’t change what’s done. I think it’s easier now to come to terms with it. I’ve stopped looking at my pictures every day, which helps a lot. Now, when I look at them I’m really happy 🙂 

I’m sure you have some amazing pictures of your wedding!! Focus on those and remember your special day and all the great moments! :)))

We are in the same boat – i dislike mine very much.  They are very “point-and-shoot” looking with no “oomph” or flare.  ugh.
