I always think I look weird in pictures. You’re not alone!

I think it’s part of being female πŸ™‚

I look at photos of myself and go ewwww but like 5 years later I’ll look at the same photo and think I look nice on it.

I think we are our own worst critics!

I’m sure yours are going to be stunning πŸ™‚

I 100% know how you feel. I am so critical of myself that Fiance actually got upset with me when we got the engagement photos because all I could do was complain about how I looked. And I am so beyond paranoid that I am going to be upset with the wedding photos…my biggest fear is I won’t enjoy the day because I’ll be preoccupied with how I look…which sounds so shallow that I’m embarassed to even type it.

I guess the only thing I can say is we have to remember our FIs love us for the way we look and who we are, and they chose us. And no woman looks ugly on her wedding day πŸ™‚

I felt the same way when I got my engagement pictures back. Everyone kept saying how beautiful they were, but all I could think about was the flaws I saw in myself that I’m fairly certain no one else even noticed. I’m sure you looked beautiful to everyone else, so try not to worry about it too much πŸ™‚

We just got ours done last Friday and haven’t seen them but I am soo afraid that I wont like them because of my hair…I attempted a wavy, curly “natural” look but the curls kept going flat and the day was super windy. I am so afraid to see them because I think my bad hair day may have ruined them and I so just want them to look beautiful and romantic like everyone else’s that I see…I looked through the albums of our photographer and every other couple looks flawless! how can they have such perfect hair and makeup! Im afraid everyone I know will see my pictures and her site and think I look like a total train wreck haha.

So yes you are not alone πŸ™

Never! I always look perfectly prim and proper in every photo.

Hah…yeah right! Of course I feel this way! I think everyone does at least at some point! I remember being on our honeymoon and getting our proofs email while we were there. I was so excited to look at them, and when I did, all I could think of was how I hated the way I looked in every, single photo. We are always so critical of ourselves that sometimes it takes someone else to tell you that the photos are amazing for you to be ok with them.

I’m my own worse critic, as well.  I think I look like crap in any non-pro picture.

I feel that I’m horribly unphotogenic.  But I’m hoping that if the photographer takes a lot of shots that maybe there will be at least a couple in which I don’t look too bad.  However, I’ll admit, I’ve had moments where I’ve wondered if we should just skip the photographer.  I think there are a lot of us who don’t feel great about how we look in pictures.

I’m the exact same way, I am way too hard on myself.  Honestly, when I got my wedding pictures at first I was really bummed out, picked out every flaw.  I looked at them once and that was it, two weeks later I went back and really looked again and there were a lot that I did actually like.  I’ve always been this way, I avoid a camera at all costs. I will say though, I rather look better in person than I do in a picture than the other way around.
