Felt great on my wedding day, but now looking at photos I feel ugly and insecure

Oh my god, your dress is gorgeous . . . 😲 First thing I saw is the detail on the shoulder strap! Oh my god, and the earrings complement so perfectly! And the background is so beautiful! Damn. Lol

loveydove :  i think you look AMAZING. I do wish I hadn’t read why you didn’t like them before I looked at the photos because I also am an over analyzer and do see a bit of slopped posture just because you mentioned it. But I also see your gorgeous hair, dress, profile, and of course the look of love you both have. What a beautiful couple and venue. Eventually you will look past these things especially in professional photos.

FWIW I have a double chin in nearly every photo I took and even though I still see it when I look I realize that no one else sees it because we are our own worst critics. Focus on how you felt and what you have as a couple instead.

You look absolutely stunning! And the location is just perfect!

If you hadn’t mentioned it exclusively, I wouldn’t even be thinking about your back at all! It’s all in your head, girl.

What are you talking about, Bee?!!? You look gorgeous!! I would never look at those pics & say “wow, look at that hunch back”! Your back looks completely normal.

Oh! You look so pretty. I love your dress as well. If the guest photos look like this, I am sure your pro photos will be stunning. Congrats on your marriage, Bee. Wish you many happy years together.

I could have written your OP myself… I’ve only seen guest photos so far and I wish someone had just told me to stand the f up. But I’d be happy if my pics were like yours!

you don’t look hunched at all, you honestly look like you are 100% in the moment enjoying every moment of it. You look beautiful

You look amazing and beautiful and oh my gosh, what a gorgeous setting to be married! 

I understand how you feel looking at pictures of yourself, though, I am the same way.  I’m very critical of any picture of myself and see things nobody else sees. 🙂  I feel that I’m not at all photogenic.

However, wait for the professional pics to come back before being too unhappy.  Remember that a lot of what makes a picture turn out perfect or not is the angle, lighting and the photographer’s skill and equipment.  Hopefully you’ll be pleasantly surprised when you get your professional shots back.

Congratulations on your wedding and keep remembering those wonderful warm, fuzzy feelings you had on your wedding day, because that’s what’s really important.

This happened to me a little as well, however, I can guarantee that you are the only one who notices other than people you may point it out to.

We know our bodies and we are very much aware of our perceived flaws. No one else is. And when I mean flaws, I truly mean perceived flaws that only we can see.

You look gorgeous, and happy, and no one else will see what you see, unless you guide them to what you are thinking. And even then, as you can see, most will not agree with your harsh perception of yourself.
