Got my wedding proofs today

And Im really disappointed. I was hoping to LOVE them and i just dont. There are MANY pics that i really DO NOT like and there are few that i do. I had my hair done w/ all these pretty beautiful curls and in MOST of the pics, my hair is behind me. Why didnt they come up and place my hair on my shoulders in front? In the FEW that my hair is in front, it looks SO MUCH better. But all my individual pics and ones w/ DH are w/ my hair behind me and you dont get the full effect.

I seriously like many more that were given to me from guests on their snapfish and kodak accounts.

Its really hard picking even 2-3 that im REALLY happy with. Chat Icon
To be honest, if these pics REALLY reflect what i looked like that day, Im really upset. THANK GOD i didnt feel as awful as these pics make me look.

SO SAD Chat Icon

These are NOT proofs but i want you to see what i mean about my hair in front and hair behind

You are gorgeous and that will shine thru.Sorry you got stuck with a sucky photog. Don't kick yourself about this.It's not your fault. When you hire a pro and this stuff happens it's very infuriating! Lots of Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Luckily you had others snapping pics and maybe when you look back on those photos years from now you will have fond memories. I've seen plenty of non pro photos that I think are superior to the Pro ones.Photo developing stores can create any size and touching up that you wnat.Chat Icon

Did you tell them to tell you if your hair was behind your shoulders? My sister told her photogs a couple of things to look out for and when they saw something they told her.

I think you look beautiful but like someone mentioned above, we are harder on ourselves then anyone else.

I remember feeling the same way when we got our proofs -- I was utterly unimpressed. We pushed through to pick a thank you picture so they can be done in a timely fashion. Then we put them away for a while to get some distance from the wedding and a little more objectivity about the photos. By the time we got around to doing the album, I was feeling better about the pictures.

I am so sorry you were upset with the final product! You looked stunning with your hair on your shoulders & in the back! We are all our worse critic!!! Look through your proofs again, I am sure there are some you really like!!!

I was thinking the same thing like the poster above. And like someone said asked them to show you all of the proofs...they don't print everything...you might find others you really like.
And love the girls' dresses..

Re: Got my wedding proofs today

I am so sorry you are upset with your proofs. I agree with the above posters - we are all our own biggest critic - so while you might notice something that you don't like about yourself in a picture, most others wouldn't notice.

You looked beautiful teh day of. Don't let your proofs get you down or make you think otherwise Chat Icon

PS - is that your mom?! If so, she looks AMAZING!

You look stunning! i totally know how you feel though- i had similar feelings about my proofs, but once you do the album and you're ONLY working with the BEST pics, i think you'll change your mind.

Re: Got my wedding proofs today

I have to tell you, I'd left a note on your album about how beautiful you looked. Proofs can be a little disappointing sometimes, especially when you are so excited about them. But, step back from them....and look at them again tomorrow or the next day. Then see what you think.

If you look back or do searches...you will find that lots of others share your sentiments! But, you do look amazing and I know that if you put some proofs up here me and a slew of others would love them and help you see tons of great things in them!


Edit: PS: The color combo of pink and navy is stunning....I love it.

First of all, you look absolutely gorgeous. Even if you hair is back or front you still look beautiful! Take a few days and step back from your pic's. You might feel different about them after taking a break from looking at them. I think we are all our own worst critic. Chat Icon

We are definitely our own worst critic.

I could look at almost every picture and notice something that could be different. EVERYONE does that!

My cousin got married 10 years before me. Ever since her wedding, I always wanted mine to be just like it because it was THE BEST wedding EVER EVER EVER.

After my wedding, she told me how she wished her wedding was like mine because so many things at HER wedding sucked. Chat Icon

I agree 100%...you look stunning with your hair either way. Love the dress, the veil, the flowers...I honestly wouldn't think twice about your hair in the pics! I felt the same as you when I got my proofs and now that I have been married for almost a year, when I look at them, I like them a lot more!

I had a similiar situation...different in that I loved my proofs, but in a number of the shots I was annoyed that my hair was behind my shoulders instead of in front. I decided, instead of obsessing about it, to step away from my pics for awhile. So I did for about 6 months. Once I looked at them again, I was able to appreciate them more without being so critical. Same thing happened with my video.

So maybe give yourself some distance and perspective from the pics.

Michele....take a break from them and then look again...you may find ones that you didn't see the first time. Its very overwhelming seeing them for the first time!

I can tell you first hand since I had a honor of seeing you....you looked gorgeous!

Re: Got my wedding proofs today

You may warm up to them. I wasn't a fan of mine at first, but they grew on me. I hope the same for you! And remember you are your own worst critic, go easy on yourself and your pictures, at leasy from the standpoint of how you look (which BTW IMO is gorgeous.) Don't be afraid to speak up, the photographer should be able to help you find/create ones you like and compensate you for any error and lack of quality in their work. Chat Icon Chat Icon
