Us too!! My hair really was gross. It’s not about me being critical of myself…I look like me. But with very frizzy hair, no make-up (it melted off) and sweaty. Fiance is sweating right through his clothes. We look uncomfortable b/c we were. We too agree there were lots of awkward poses…we didn’t like those, so we will be sure to steer clear for the wedding.
Good point. And I’m having hair and make-up trial so it will be more firmed up as to what I will look like.
We actually didn’t have a photog until about a month ago. We are gettimg married abroad so we had trouble finding one. I searched and searched but it wasn’t until I found ours that I was happy. It just so happens they work in the country we are going to and base themselves out of the same state in which we live. She offered the e-pics if we could drI’ve there so we did. We actually started much later than originally planned but it was just a hot day. Thank you…glad I’m not alone.
Fiance and I both see it. Even my mom didn’t gush about them. I mean she said they were nice but it wasn’t pure excitement.
There were a lot of shots requested that were missed. We are too far away to be seen in a lot of photos. They are photos that were edited. That’s what I meant when I said a technical standpoint. 🙂 I don’t find it at all unusual from a client standpoint to love all or most your pics. Everyone I know loved all of their photos. So I was hoping for the same.
I wanted an album of engagement photos. I also wanted to give some to my parents and grandmother and aunt and keep a few framed around the house. I’m 36, he’s 35. We aren’t sure we will have kids, so no preggo pictures. FI’s son is 7. He was there too. We got some family shots to display…or wanted to anyway. Of course we can always get photos taken again but Fiance proposing to me is what lead to our engagement and I wanted at least 10-20 to capture this special time, b/c quite frankly…It won’t ever come again. Maybe my expectations were off but I’ve had gf’s get e-shots done and they love them all, so I wanted the same for us too. However, we will take what we love and do the best we can with those. This was also a great learning experience for us to be sure our wedding photos are what we want. 😀
