I think the pics are beautiful!  I was also unhappy with my engagement photos, so i understand where you are coming from.  It was the fault of the photographer though in my case, they were just not good pictures.  I didn’t use them for anything, no save the dates, no Facebook, nada.  I was disapointed at the time since we didn’t have time to get them taken again by a different photographer, but I quickly forgot about it once our wedding happened and I had pics from the wedding.  I do think the ones you posted are lovely though!

I think those are all gorgeous photos, for what it’s worth.

 They are lovely and you are beautiful. Sometimes we are just too hard on ourselves and this is one of those moments. I think they all look great and you two look very happy together.

You both look lovely and incredibly happy. I especially like the last one! Any of them would work for STD’s. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes we see ourselves so differently from the rest of the world. You are beautiful (not at all chunky) and the pics you shared are gorgeous. I’ll bet you’ll look back on these and be really happy. I’m not trying to dismiss your feelings, just offering an outside perspective. There are pictures of myself that I remember feeling mortified by (“OMG, I look absolutlely disgusting/fat/unattrative!”). Now I wonder why I was feeling that way and think I look pretty great in them. laughing

Those pictures are BEAUTIFUL! I especially love the last one. You look stunning ๐Ÿ™‚ I was also originally disappointed with some of my engagement photos, but now I love them. We are our own worst critics! Don’t sweat it ๐Ÿ™‚

PS I think the last one would be lovely for a save the date! ๐Ÿ˜‰

loveisbrewing :  Hey girl, I had the SAME feeling about my engagement photos. I had recently lost weight, but the angles of the photos were unflattering and I was super bloated the day of. I actually found a photo-slimming retouching service on Etsy to fix my photos, because just like you, I loved the setting and everything, it was just that I looked bigger than I do in real life and I couldn’t stop obsessing. The service on Etsy I found photoshopped my favorite several photos, the ones we were planning to share. They didn’t make me look like I wasn’t myself, just took off the 10 lbs the camera seems to have added. I’m sure some people will think of this as like cheating? But I can’t stress enough how natural the result was.

loveisbrewing :  You are truly adorable! I am not just saying that! Your Fiance looks a little bored in the last picture, but he’s smiling in the other three. I think the pictures are very cute. Sorry that you were feeling disappointed in them.

loveisbrewing :  oh my goodness, these pics are beautiful! You look very slim and I think you both look like an attractive young couple in love. You are being waaaaaaaay too hard on yourself. When you’re 65, you’ll look back on these photos and think, ” man, was I ever gorgeous!”

They are drop dead gorgeous! I get what you mean about the ‘squinty’ eye, but honestly, it looks great. You look SO happy! And not at all chunky. PLEASE put these on your wedding website/use as a STD!
