    I think it is too intimate.  I’d wait for the others.  It’s a good picture, though!

    Yeah, I agree. I might be a little uneasy if someone sent me that in their thank you card. I’d wait a couple days for the teaser pics and see what you get.

    It’s a beautiful picture, but I can see some of your guests being uncomfortable with it (especially the more conservative ones). Can you ask for one where you both are facing straight ahead?

    I’ve noticed that many Bees, when voting, pick the ones where people are facing forward anyway so I doubt your photographer would think you are being picky. Our photographer actually sent us two different ones and said we can ask for more if these didn’t work out for us.

    I agree, the photo is a bit intimate. I’d just wait til you get the others on cd 🙂 Or wait for a few other teaser pics.

    It is a great picture! …..but not for your Thank You cards. Definitely wait or just send a friendly e-mail if you really want to send them out pronto.


    ETA: By e-mail I mean to your photographer asking if she could send you another picture. I realized it sounded like I was saying to e-mail your guests thank you.

    It’s a great photo! My advice would be to e-mail your photographer and tell them you would like to use a photo that shows both of your faces for the thank-you notes.

    Oops.  I voted wrong 🙂  I thought it said “don’t use THIS picture”- I love the picture, but maybe another one would be better for the thank yous.

    I had the SAME problem!  Maybe our photogs haven’t seen the nice, forward facing Thank You pictures that we’ve seen on the Bee.  Because I asked before the wedding if she could send me one great picture of the 2 of us right away to use as a Thank You note pic, and it was a picture of us nose to nose looking all googley at each other. Not what I was picturing.  I used a guest photo instead 😛       Its a BEAUTIFUL picture though – just not a Thank You note picture.

    It is a great photo, but I gotta say, before I even read your question, when I saw that pic I immediately thought of sexytimes.
