So… we have had our engagement pictures back for several months now. I think they turned out great, and I love our photographer! She is so nice, easy to work with and has done weddings for a couple of our friends and I always love her work.
The issue it, my Fiance hates the way he looks in the pictures. He thinks he has “hat hair” and that his beard looks patchy. Now, everyone thinks this is amusing because the guy cares so much about his looks and the girl is OK with it.
Neither one of us feel very photogenic, so we were both very nervous about how they would turn out. Our photographer has graciously offered ( on several occasions) to do a mini e-session this Spring to get some better shots for him.
I want to just keep what we have because, like previously mentioned, I can be a tad camera and I think the ones we have are great.
I feel silly taking her up on the offer, but my Fiance is all over it! Here are a few of our e-pics she did, and a few of the shots my Fiance isn’t happy with.
So… should we just suck it up and keep what we have? After all, it is not her fault that his hair was bumpy! Here are a few pics ti show you what we are talking about…
He says his beard looks patchy in this one…
This picture is one of the main ones he was disappointed with… and we both really liked the shot, editing, angles, etc…. he just hates his hair!

I voted other because I think your fiance’s opinion does matter but personally, I think they look stunning and both of you look beautiful and very happy in the pictures.

These are beautiful. Sounds like your Fiance is being a bit overly critical. His hair looks fine.

Honestly I don’t think the photographer should re-do them for free, the fact that your Fiance doesn’t like his hair has nothing to do with the quality or turnout of the photos. But if the photographer is willing to redo them, than go for it.

Personally, I think your photos are amazing! I recall stating the same thing previously when you posted them months ago.
Your photographer is being especially kind and gracious to offer to redo the photos! IMO, I don’t feel she should have to take more of her time to retake the pics and edit because your Fiance failed to care for his beard/hair.
Good luck, whatever you decide.

I think they are great pictures! I can see the line that makes it look like “hat hair”, was he wearing a hat? lol Or maybe its just the way his hair grows in. MY brother had that issue until he began cutting in shorter and eliminated the line. You both have to be happy. If he would like to take new ones and your photographer is gracious enough to offer, why not spend more time with her! She seems great and her pictures are gorgeous! 🙂
