@MapleLeafBride:  Is there any way you could get them re-done? Maybe send an e-mail to your photographer?

Oh no. 🙁

Do you have any you’d be willing to share? Maybe you guys are just being hypercritical because they’re photos of yourselves.

I wasn’t crazy about how I looked in my e-photos at first (not the photographer’s fault- was more issues I was having with my hair/makeup), but after I saw them a few times I started to love them.

That’s mean of him to say!  What makes them bad?  Just bad angles?  Maybe you could get them re-done.

@MapleLeafBride:  I wouldn’t fault them- I’d *never* tell a friend that a photo of her was bad.

If I wasn’t a fan of the photographer, and she ASKED me, I might tell her that the photography style wasn’t my favorite, but I’d NEVER comment on her physical appearance other than to tell her she was beautiful. And I’d never say otherwise to anyone else when she wasn’t around, either.

@MapleLeafBride:  Did you guys purchase your e-session a la carte, or have you already booked this guy for your wedding?

I’m sorry that happened! Hopefully you can get them re-done or at least get a refund! Are you planning on looking for another photographer now?

Oh yikes!

Would you be willing to share one with us? Hopefully the photographer will work with you again.

@MapleLeafBride:  Just from this sample, I feel her angles are a little awkward.

Honestly, I don’t think it helps that you’re both in light colors. Dark colors can be more slimming, and if you were in different colors it would help with the contrast between the two of you.

But yeah…the framing of this picture isn’t even good! Is this a professional you hired? :/

Was she shorter than you? I also bring a step stool just in case!

Just a tip from a photographer… if you have “under the chin” areas that you dislike, you can help yourself and not rely on your photographer. Stick your head out. Like a chicken. No, I’m not joking, and no, it won’t make you look weird. Pushing your head out (beyond your shoulders) straightens and lengthens the neck and pulls skin away from your jaw and face. You’ll look tighter and “better”

I don’t know if it would have resolved your issue, but it’s something to think about.
