woah!  definitely overly critical on yourself… you both look fantastic!!!  Your skin is flawless, makeup looks great, you have beautiful straight white teeth and your hair looks amazing!!  Cheer up – they’re GREAT photos!!

The photographer clearly did an excellent job, and you look great. I could have the Vogue staff taking my pictures and I’d still hate how I look.

I think you’re being overly critical on yourself! You look great!

Honestly? You look amazing… the photos look amateur. I won’t get into the details, but I hope you didn’t pay too much for these.

You look amazing! And most importantly, you can tell how happy you are in the pictures 🙂

I never like how I look in pics, so I know what you mean.  I think you look really nice in them!

I am with all you Bees saying you hate how you look in pictures.

I think you look fantastic in them.  And it seems all us Bees do.

So from a person on the outside’s point of view, you look fabulous.  Try to not pick yourself apart 🙂

@PassionatePhotoLady:  I think your comment was unnecessary, or at the very least it could have been worded in a more tactful manner.  I realize you are a professional and wish to share your knowledge but your comment did not, in my opinion, reflect your professionalism well.

@Luckygir15:  I think you look beautiful and are being too hard on yourself.  You are going to be a stunning bride! 🙂

@PassionatePhotoLady: Yeah, I’m going to have to go ahead and disagree with you there. The colors are crisp, the shots are focused, the couple looks great. These are high quality photos, and In My Humble Opinion they are exactly what engagement photots should look like. They aren’t gimmicky or staged, there’s no weird coloring or photo tricks (faded, selective coloring etc.) the focus is on the couple and how happy they look. I’d say these pics are worth every penny.

I think you look very lovely in the photos!! Im sorry you are disappointed with the photos but maybe you can speak with the photographer about what editing can be done to improve those areas you dont like… I dont know much about photography but these days almost anything can be done to a photo so maybe its just a matter of lightening the photo or rotating it or something but again in my honest opinion I think you look great. You look genuinely happy in the photos and your smile brigthens us the photos

The pictures are FINE! They look excellent. Try and post pics of yourself that you DO like so that we can compare and contrast and see what you see.
