I loved them. And then I started nit picking. I hated my hair and wasn’t thrilled with my makeup (I knew that before the pictures though). The only major thing that was the photographer’s fault was there are so few pictures of just my husband and I. Which is why if we ever do a vow renwel, I’m hiring a photographer and having them take nothing but pictures of just us LOL.

For the most part, I love my pictures though. She caught some really good candid pictures.

I loved them. And I was shocked at how good I looked! I’m a size 14/16 normally, cute but not one ofr make up/hair and all the girly stuff. I normally HATE how I look in pictures. And I LOVE pretty much ALL my pictures. They are amazing 🙂

Glasgowbound:  I was the same way! I was partially dreading the pro pics because I hate how I look in photos that aren’t selfies lol

They’re great photos and my photographer did a great job but I felt like I was looking at a different person! She looked so relaxed, beautiful, confident, and most importantly HAPPY! I try to remember how I felt that day every morning now.

redpeonies:  I know my reaction will be much the same as when our photographer did our engagement photos and we got them back. I think it was along the lines of “Eeeeeeeee!”

He’s honestly so, so good. I am so glad I booked him and his wife.

I was ecstatic. I love them. Plus I was so shocked because our photographer got them to us only eight days after the wedding. he did a phenomenal job, and captured exactly how happy and in love we were that day. The pictures are amazing. There’s no room for nitpicking, they’re just perfect.

my biggest problem will be picking my favorites to hang up.

but I’m also not usually super nit picky about photos of myself. And in general what I love about photos are the moments they capture, not necessarily whether I look picture perfect in them.

I LOVED my pro pics.  I loved how our photographer captured the private moments between Darling Husband and I, it definitely showed how much we love each other (my Maid/Matron of Honor cried when she viewed them).

I do feel a small regret that I didn’t insist that my photographer capture a lot of detailed full length dress shots of me in the photos.  But in the grand scheme of things, I would rather that my children know/see how much me and Darling Husband love each other and are so happy being married vs. having half our photo gallery get taken up with details that will be out of date years from now anyway!

I was very pleased with them. I don’t like the way my face looks in some, but that’s just me being overly critical of myself.

I was over the moon happy with my photos. The day went by so fast it was great looking at the photos to see all the details I missed on the day. My photographers did an awesome job and captured all the special emotions of the day. On the flip side, I also noticed all the little details that I hadn’t noticed that went wrong from looking at the photos. At the end of the day, those don’t really matter though and my husband and I still look through our photos fondly and joke about all the little things that went wrong.
