@Shantly07: just wondering why you don’t want to retake them?, is it just a cost issue? 


I don’t think it would be a great idea to use pictures he dislikes so much. I know I wouldn’t like it and I’d guess that if roles were reversed neither would you. There are plenty of other things you can do for your save the dates and it’s probably better to find something you both like!

@Shantly07:  Thats so disappointing! it’s one thing for you both to dislike them, but for you to love them and him hate them 🙁 … I’m sorry! I hope you both LOVE your second round!

@Shantly07:  I’m sorry. That sucks. is it possible he doesn’t love the way he looks in them? This happened with me in our engagements… I couldn’t put a finger on it, but I hated them. It turns out I think it’s very unattractive tilting my head back in a certain way, and also harsh side profile shots of my nose and chin. Fast forward two seasons and taking our Christmas card photos I made sure to not do any of those things, and asked the photographer to avoid a certain angle of me. Sure enough, I love them. All of them.

I’d ask him specifically what it is about each picture. Or find one he likes marginally more than others, and figure what’s different about the way he’s smiling, or whatever. So he can make sure photos like that are avoided.

I hope that’s the case, just so he’s not unhappy with your wedding photos too!

If you were in his shoes – the one hating the pictures – you’d want him to respect your wishes and retake the photos, too.

Does your Fiance have any self confidene issues?  I hate the way I look in 90% of photos due to some issues with weight/confidence.  It takes me a while to start to go “Yes, I like that one, and how I look.”  If you sprung something like that on me, it would not go well.
