ugh I have the same problem!! I have a huge nose and I look horrible in profile pictures, also my two front teeth stick out a little and I look really funny in pictures lol I think I am pretty in person though! I am just going to try my best and hope that my photogropher takes good pics at the right angle and thank god for photoshop 😀

I’m so worried about this! I do have a “good side” though, that I am going to tell my photographer to focus on…:)

Me, too. Unless I really concentrate on a bright-eyed face, one eye is alwas half shut and droopy. It’s bizarre and annoying. Also, every undereye shadow and wrinkle stands out in pictures for me. :

Thanks for the link to the tips, ccrane!

Whenever I genuinely smile, I close one eye more than the other.  I do this in every picture!  And if I’m not smiling, I look like I’m mad or something.  I’m thinking of doing more pictures where I’m looking at my Fiance instead of directly at the camera.

I have the same problem… but it disappears when i take candid pics… go for photojournalistic style pics!

I totally have a Barbra Streisand nose (it only looks good from one side!) and from certain angles, one of my teeth looks like it is on an escape mission.  But I found that a good photographer and a real smile goes a long way.

I know I have a friend that practiced various smiles in front of the mirror before getting her engagement pictures done to find the one she thought looked the best.  Maybe get someone that is good with a camera (or your fiance) to take pictures of different angles and smiles?  Practice in front of a mirror.  Good luck!

I always feel this way, but I have friends who feel this way too and I always think their pictures look good. I think in general we are much harder on ourselves (especially in pictures) than we are on others.

@Magenta – well I hope you’re not eating because it’s almost midnight!!  😛  It’s so frustrating to take pictures when you hate your teeth isn’t it?  I wish I could afford braces.
