and by plus size I mean 200+lbs. yesterday at a pool party a lot of pics were taken and I look AWFUL. like an ogre. I cried over it. I’m so worried my wedding pics will be ruined because I look like a heifer. I’m wanting to see some pics to give me an idea of what to prompt the photographer on. at this point I’m too anxious to let them do whatever they want to do. I may hurl if my wedding pics don’t come out good.

I am in the same situation. I too would love to see some professional pics of my sister plus gals. a month ago, i went to a family reunion and they hired a professional photographer. I hated all the pics with me in them. for some odd reason the photographer kept putting me in these truly odd positions and they ALL accentuated my abdomen and my chunky chin. then my future brother in law snapped a few pics of me with my all my future in laws, i looked great. So i am going to have a really long conversation with my wedding photographer about how i feel. i am most self conscience of my chin and my belly. my butt, boobs, arms and legs no problem. I am praying he will listen to me. i choose this photographer b/c his work is beautiful with 20 plus years experience. he also seemed very communicative. so i think i am doing all i can do at this point besides continuing to lose weight.

Girl the people at the pool were not being paid to capture how happy you looked. The photographers didn’t know anything about the beauty of angles, your hair and makeup weren’t done, they were probably taken in harsh sunlight — and it wasn’t the best day of your life.
Just remember, no one thinks they look beautiful in ALL the 1,000+ pictures you get back from your photographer — but I was the heaviest I’ve ever been on our wedding day and I still think I looked pretty great in most. For context, for people looking at these and going, I’m not nearly as skinny/small as her, I’m 5’8″ and weighed approx 270 on our big day.
ETA: The only directive I gave my photographers was that I liked more spontaneous rather than super posed pictures. I didn’t want them wigging out about would I like the way my arm look in this shot and potentially miss a moment.

I dont have wedding pictures yet, but I do have my engagement pictures. I was surprised how much my joy was captured. I am SUPER self conscious as I am currently 230 lbs and my fiance is very slim, but I feel like I looked happy and thats what I was.

I’m worried about the same thing! I actually expressed my worries to my photographer and she told me she was SO glad i told her how I felt because now she knows how to capture me better. I just discovered this website and it’s amazing! All plus size bride weddings:

I’m worried about this also. Do you think it makes sense to ask if the photographer has experience with plus-sized brides?

- Wedding: South Lodge. 2nd of Dec 2017
you have some time to make yourself feel, as comfortable as possible in your own skin, my advice start walking between 5-10 thousand steps a day, try body balance, core stability neither of which are hot sweaty classes, which us fully grow women hate 😉. if a class is just not your thing, do the you tube videos, they are great, Like me you can loose some weight by your wedding, but the most important thing will be firmer, my body is looking so much better I have dropped a dress size but only 4lbs, I am a foodie, love me or leave me alone is my motto. I won’t ever be slim but I would like it if my thighs didn’t rub 😊.
most important thing, you have found a wonderful man who loves you just as you are, have a wonderful day, stand tall, be proud and let your happiness shine in those photos, like the other beautiful bees above.
