Girl, you look absolutely beautiful! We are our own worst critics, but truly, you look stunning and the love between you and your husband really shines through in these photos πŸ™‚ I’m not sure of how to practically get over the insecurity because I know how that feels, but just try to focus on the emotions the photos evoke and the ones you feel really great about. There will of course be less flattering photos in any set, but just try not to worry about that!

lattefairy : Absolutely gorgeous pictures! I see a beauitful bride who looked excited to be marrying the love of her life! I’m not sure what facial expressions you don’t like in these pictures, but I imagine you’re just being very critical and hard on yourself.

Your pictures are amazing and you look fantastic! I love the one of you and your wedding party in the tall grass!! I am definitely the first to pick out flaws in photos of myself, but really these photos are great!

I had to see for myself so I clicked on the link. Your photos are STUNNING.  You were expressive throughout and looked beautiful.

You’re kidding right? These pictures are beautiful and I love your faces!! They’re so candid and fun. You honestly look amazing in all of these! Even the sillier ones. I’m praying my face looks half as good as yours in my pictures.

But I can understand how you feel, we’re all our own worst critic. When I got my engagement photos back I loved them, but not me in them. I just kept looking at them and trying to remind myself that I was just being too critical. Try looking at the picture as a whole and seeing the love emotion and not focusing on your face. That helped me get over it. Also having other people tell you how awesome they are and how pretty you look helps give you a reality check.

I tried really hard to find something wrong with your pictures but theyre beautiful. You’re definitely being too critical of yourself.

lattefairy :  You look absolutely beautiful. Those photos of you two by the water are stunning. πŸ˜† But I understand how you feel. I’m not photogenic and tend to make this weird face in photos. Smiling is still foreign to me since I just had braces removed last year so before that I rarely smiled or laughed. We are definitely our own worst critics! I’m sure your husband looks at the photos and sees perfection. Congratulations!

lattefairy :  Ok, so I genuinely teared up at your photos!! <3

All I see is a ridiculously happy couple, to be honest πŸ™‚ 

We’re our own worst critics and I think the other Bees have some great ideas of how to move past this πŸ™‚

I’m really hoping this is a fake post.  If it’s not, you need to see a therapist for body dysmorphia and or narcissism.  The girl in the pictures is pretty and shouldn’t be fishing for compliments from strangers.

“We witnessed a love so effortless and honest that photographing them was almost too easy.”

I think what the photographer said summed up what I think about those photos best. Both of you look so effortlessly and honestly in love with each other. You look really natural and ‘you’ in the pictures, it makes me feel happy seeing them!

Also I love your hair and gown!
