For me I had 2 I didn’t like, one I had a very clear double chin :/ and the other I was laughing and my face is all scrunched and weird. Everyone agrees the double chin is a no go but its weird because people seem to like the laughing one. I guess I never realized thats how I look!

As for your pics, they are adorable! I think you look great in all of them!

you look wonderful! i do not think your hips look big AT ALL! you are crazy!

i felt like this in alot of my bridal portraits, i really should have gotten my hair done – or have someone do it for me, i drove like a bat out of hell at 6 in the morning down to charleston to do them (3 hours away) to get back by 5 for a superbowl party.

so i know the feeling – i have so many beautiful shots, i just dont look beautiful haha.

Oh yes. I loved our e-pics, but in this one I look like the michelin tire man or like I am smuggling giant marshmallows. I don’t know what happened here but my gut is unforgiveable.

mine were about 50/50, but mostly i think it was a poor wardrobe decision on my part that lead to that – i had a weird “bump/roll” on my back that doesnt exist in real life, and i have no idea how i managed to cause it haha – i was surprised by them, but it almost made me like the good ones more, if that makes sense?

looking at your pics, theyre so freaking cute!  looove the one that he used as the “cover” on the blog

Maybe ONE isn’t flattering but I’m sorry to say the others are really cute but if anything I think it’s the clothing that makes you APPREAR wider. Like the last coat pic. I can’t see where the coat ends and your body begins, which creates the illusion of being bigger when clearly you’re on the smaller side.

I’m sure you’ll have plenty that are nice once you get the full set. Pick the ones where you can CLEARLY see the shape of your body, hiding it in the shawdows to me makes it appear bigger, so avoid selecting those. Otherwise I think they’re cute.

@yaneres: Your photographer can’t know what you’re self-conscious about unless you tell them. Those photos look great, and the photographer can’t know that you’re going to only see your hips unless he knows it’s something you’re concerned about. I send a questionnaire out to my couples and one of the questions is let me know things you’d like me to be aware of when shooting – i.e. scars, angles you’d prefer not to have, a mole somewhere, figure issues, etc. It helps me be more aware when I’m shooting. Is this photog shooting your wedding? If so I might let him know that you love the photos but you’re self-conscious. I think the biggest problem for you was the jacket that flared out at the hips, and while photographers can give suggestions about wardrobe you ultimately have to know what looks best on you. You look absolutely beautiful and I honestly would have never seen an issue until you pointed it out.
