dogmom91 :  oh yes! I hardly ever like the way I look in pics!  I hate my big nose and my small chin. If I’m not photographed from just the right angle it looks weird to me. We didn’t get engagement photos done so I all I have is from the wedding. Our photographer was just amazing. I was blown away by our photos! Having someone know how to pose you to look good is important!

dogmom91 :  I am NOT photogenic and hate how I look in photos so I am not looking forward to wedding day pics. Hopefully a few are tolerable but Ill probably hate them all.

The silver lining is in 10-15 years I’ll look back and love them and wish I had appreciated my youth! LOL

I am not photogenic at all and I hate photos of ome. So I’ve been dreading how I look in my wedding day photos and when I received them, although I’m not that cute in a lot of them, I feel like I kinda am, I’m smiling like a chesire cat in most, am so happy, the double chin is just a result of my laughter, or the wrong angle is the result of me looking at my husband with pure joy. I think a part of me wanted to look like this wistful beautiful bride but in most I look ecstatic and the result isn’t a perfect face, but a face full of emotion. Just remember the joy you felt during the photoshoot and knowing you are marrying the man of your dreams.

Eek! We did ours last night too! I felt really weird having that much makeup on my face (I’m used to no makeup). Please share when you get your photos back!

dogmom91 :  thank you! I have a double chin sometimes because my chin is small. There were a few where it showed but I just kind of accepted it becaue the photos were still beautiful and I look so happy!

I hated my engagement photos! And you know what…it’s totslly not a big deal. We got to know our photographer and we had fun, plus they were included in our package anyway. I used my engagement photos as a makeup trial and did NOT like it at all. Oh well, live and learn! My wedding photos came out great though.

the worst that happens is you look through them, hate them, and never consider them again!

This is such a fear of mine. My eyes are never opened correctly and I either look like im high or about to sneeze. SMH. I think we are our worst critics, though. We tend to see all the small details about ourselves, and everyone else seems to see the whole picture.

dogmom91 :  Its normal to worry!

And to be honest, while you get some great pics – usually there is some not so great pics in there too haha. So dont judge yourself too harshly. But these are professionals, they take a bunch and pick the best ones – you are going to have some great photos!

dogmom91 :  yes, I feel like this ever since I am no longer a size 4! Literally, I feel that I look fat in pictures and I know I’m not fat!! There were some pictures that were not flattering but I got several good ones!!! These are screenshots I have on my phone so excuse the outlines!

Yup! I have a little bit of body dismorphia and hate how I look in a lot of pictures. I always think I look chubby and I was worried about that with our engagement pics but I loved them.
