Well I can see why you love them! I can relate, I have two pugs and they are my babies.

So sorry girls!
So andrea, my suggestion is that you do a photoshoot back here in MN this summer.... or on your year anniv set up a TTD. I know some people that did that and are sooo glad they did. Just an idea:-)

I confess...

 

#1) I am drunk. Boxed wine is dangerous (and maybe a lil' tacky) cause it never ends

 

#2) I head that BIL might lose his job. Now there is a BIG backstory with him. Basically, he ended up being the golden child within DH's family. The lot of them were completely unsupportive of our wedding, etc.yet couldn't do enough for him & his future bride. I had to take a few minutes of glee in the fact that they might finally have a bump in the road.

 

#3) Now I feel really guilty about #2

I confess- that I HATE my BD pics and am very sad. I jumped on the band wagon of a group shoot with a not so experienced photographer in my opinion. I only paid $250 with crappy hair and makeup included plus the rental of car cause it wasn't in the city. I am just super bummed because this was a big deal for me.

 

I have struggled with my self image and body issues my whole life and have come to a healthier place but seeing this horrible lighting, non artistic shots, and bad makeup (which i didn't correct becuase I didn't bring any of my own makeup!!) has thrown me for a loop. I feel horrible. I was hoping the experience would be liberating, fun and empowering and it wasn't. Now that I see the pics i am a bit depressed. They look trashy and not good. I am supposed to pick 30 that i like but can only find about 6.

 

I am considering forking out the dough for another shoot with a more experienced photographer -even though i don't have it at all- ugh..

thanks for letting me vent.

 

* I don't want to say who the photographer is becuase there are 2 other girls on here that did it with me. I will wait to chat with them first.

I have two FSIL and one PISSES me OFF SO MUCH!! She is my FH's half sister but she is so LAZY she has two beautiful kids but is always thinking about herself and only herself but tells herself that she is a great mom which is probably is in her own way...but she doesn't take pride in her child. She does give her baths regularly or I buy her really nice clothes and she lets her wear clothes that DON'T FIT!! She is ALWAYS on the prowl for a guy and that irrates me, focus on yourself and your kids get a job to support them, don't sleep with them on the first date etc. Uggg...I could go on but I am sure I have said enough and noone wants to hear this...lol.

Oh no!! That sucks!!!
Having pictures that you are not happy with is the worst!!
Is there anyway you can have them photoshopped?? I dont' really know anything about it, but maybe someone could tone down the makeup, etc to make them look less trashy.
I hope you find a solution!! And one that doesn't have to break the bank!

Oh no Yamille! I totally understand about body issues. I didn't have BD pics done because I couldn't bear the thought of looking at my fat ass!

 

I would think about doing another shoot, if not before the wedding then maybe as an anniversary present. Your first is paper, so there you go! It would give you time to save up and really shop around for a photog you are comfortable with.

 

Have you told the photographer you are unhappy? Is there any way you could get a full or partial refund?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
