awww I’m sorry you’re not happy.  but maybe your Fiance is right.  we are our own worst critics.  If you are truly unhappy and it’s in your budget, have a re-do with ANOTHER photographer.  If you’re not too self conscious about them, post a few and see what the ladies say.  Maybe they’re actually ok.

I’m so sorry you’re unhappy! I bet your Fiance is totally right, and you look GORGEOUS! 

On the upside, good for you for not using them on the big day!

Is there anyway you can have another session done- perhaps a friend or relative can take pictures, or even a student or start-up photographer that wants to build their portfolio? 

You should definitely have pictures of you and your SO that you adore 🙂

Maybe if you get them retouched and ditch the ones with unflattering angles, you could have some you like?

I agree with posting some if you feel comfortable, but I understand what you’re saying about everyone will just say they’re fine haha.  I promise to be as honest as I can ;o)

Do you have any photo-editing software so you can retouch them yourself?  I think it was Mrs. Mary Jane who posted a tutorial.  Or by using one of the free photo editing tools out there?

Does she have the unretouched photos up live on her website?  If you’re not happy with them, you can always ask her to take them down, right?

I’m sorry that you’re disappointed with your pictures. My face also freaked out in the week before we took ours so I am really hoping that they seriously retouch. Hopefully your edited images will be much better. I am still waiting on mine—but I’m sure I will be right there with you come tomorrow

I hope out of the retouched pics on the CD that she sends you that you find some that you’re happy with. At least count this as a relief that you didn’t book them for the wedding. Have you got some vendors lined up?

Don’t worry- skin problems aren’t only for teenagers! I used a new cleanser last week and my entire face has been covered by a rash ever since (hot!) I wish I could Photoshop my face in real life 🙂 Stupid tea tree oil… Stupid allergic to everything skin…

I’m glad you’re getting the images retouched so you feel more confident, but sorry you didn’t get what you wanted the first time!

Hmmm I’d be upset @ no retouching too. I actually got back a few tease pics from our rehearsal dinner that we invited the photog to and they were un-retouched and I was like Surprised plus I hated my hair … which is a whole different story for another post.

You have lots of time though. I’ve learned its very important to LOVE your photographer and be comfortable with them … sometimes they are the only memories you have once it’s all over … it goes by FAST the day of! Good luck.
