I have really been enjoying the beautiful engagement and wedding photos posted here.
But, the photos with people kissing on the lips cause an involuntary frown on my face. I have no idea why. I am not ultra-conservative. More risque photos, i.e. mega cleavage, don’t bother me at all. I only get that “oh geez, I don’t wanna see that” feeling with kiss pics, lol. For my own photos, the only kiss pic will be the “you may now kiss the bride” moment.
But enough about me, did you have kissing in your photos? Was it because it’s special to you? Or did you not even think twice about it (no big deal)?

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
@sweetbutdemanding: No big deal, seeing as isn’t the culmination of the ceremony the fact that it’s sealed with a kiss?

I bet $5 that you will have pictures of you two kissing. Because once it’s your wedding day, all you want to do is kiss your spouse.
I didn’t put photos of us smooching on our thank-yous or send them to family, but some of them are cute.

We did but even our kissing pics are my least favorite lol

we had kissing pics for our engagement shoot, simply because it was in the moment. We would look into eachother’s eyes and it was only natural for us to kiss afterwards, just so happened out photog would capture that moment. 🙂 i like out kissing pics, however i would not send them out to people because i dont think they would appreicate them as much as they would non-kissing pics lol… just my opinion.

Our posed kissing pic is one of my least favorites, but I do like the one where I kissed him at the end of the ceremony.

We did have some, but those aren’t the ones that we posted online or have up on our walls. I feel the same way you do, OP! I am glad I have that emotion/those moments captured, but that’s for our own perusal. I don’t like having them displayed for all to see – and I don’t really enjoy having that glimpse into someone’s intimate moment. I think it’s the intimacy that makes me squeamish? I also don’t have an issue with cleavage, etc. It’s something about how personal it is that makes me uncomfortable.

I don’t like kissing pics either! I don’t think they’re in bad taste, it’s just not what I want to look at or see myself doing lol.

I’ve seen some pretty unfortunately awkward kissing pictures in a friend’s engagement photos, so now I’m worried about the same thing. It doesn’t help that I think I look awkward in photos anyway! But still, I think we’re going to include kissing pictures in our engagement and wedding photos.

I mean, we weren’t hanging all over each other making out. We didn’t think about it in advance at all. There are only a few pics of us kissing, and I’d like to think it was all tasteful. But I’ve had more than a few people tell me that their absolute favorite picture and moment of our ceremony was when DH and I were walking down the aisle and spontaneously turned and kissed about halfway down. It is a great shot–so many beaming faces in the background, and we look so happy that we can’t physically contain it.

We will def have some pics kissing. Not like tongue down the throat lol. I’ve never cringed at pics of a bride & groom kissing. I don’t see anything wrong with it… you just got married, you’re happy, you kiss. I’m surprised anyone wouldn’t want to kiss there husband or wife.

My DH thought he’d be embarrassed about kissing in front of all the people at the wedding and even joked that he’d give me the cheek for the “you may now kiss the bride” party (he didn’t), we’re not big on PDA and never really do more than the quickest of pecks in public, but the day of the wedding we were so f***ing happy and in love that we could not stop kissing at all and even gladly kissed when people clinked glasses or the photographers asked us. We never held it for too long as an intentional “pose” we just kissed the way that we enjoy kissing and our kissing photos are some of my favorite, I’m so happy that we have them. The majority of our kissing photos are completely non-posed just we felt like kissing so we did…and our kissing photos garnered some of the most “likes” on Facebook *shrug*

We got a few kissing photos, and actually I want to have one of them turned into a canvas. It’s also a distant shot so it’s not upclose, but we have a few of those and I don’t mind those posted either. I don’t think it’s a big deal, but I guess it’s different for all of us! Now, if we want to talk about those “Honeymoon” pictures that are practically porn…that’s a whole other story.
