Try to get us to not smile.  My photographer thanked me at the end of the night for smiling so much.

I have noticed this trend too! I would never have been able to pull off those artsy moody shots. I was smiling the whole time and my husband was constantly laughing and talking in my ear during photos, making me awkwardly

laugh more, so some of ours border on me looking like a maniac because I am laughing or smiling too much! Haha! We did get some normal smile ones though, so I’m happy about that. The one thing we hardly have is any portraits of us both looking straight on. The more interesting candids are fun but I wish we had a few more traditional portraits to use for relatives, etc.

shaia7 :  Thank you! We didn’t really get any posed Pinterest shots at all, but we got lots of shots of us having fun. I love this one with DH giving the metal horns during our ceremony too.

All the pictures make me smile!!! I don’t know how you can keep a serious face for all the pics, the majority of ours show us grinning and laughing!

I love this one from the end of our ceremony.  My husband has a cleft in his chin that I (weird couple thing alert) like to put the tip of my nose in.  I did it automatically after we kissed and then we both cracked up 🙂

LittleKBee :  I’ve noticed this too. I think lots of people are self conscious about their smiles. When you smile broadly and naturally you’re going to have more smile creases, your eyes might look a little smaller, and you’ll get that crinkle thing around the eyes…you can even see it in photos of kids smiling. I think people want to look model-y so they go for the more perfect face photos, which are often unsmiling.

Husband’s face when he saw me, one of my favourite photos!

I love this one too.
