It's been over a month since I got married (BAM to come), but I finally got my wedding pictures today!! I have been super excited to get them because we hired an AMAZING photographer...she was definitely a splurge in terms of budget, but we didn't have the budget for a videographer, so I wanted to make sure we go the BEST photographer in our area to document our day.
We had to ge married in our local town (we wanted a destination wedding, but FH's step dad got laid off as we were wedding planning, and it just wasn't a good time for everyone to travel. Plus, it was important for us to have his grandparents there, as mine have all passed, and they are pretty old to be traveling anywhere far). So, we didn't have the most photogenic location I guess is where I'm going with this. We got married in a church that his grandparents are really involved with bc it meant a lot to them (they got married there and so did his parents); however, it is NOT a very pretty church. It's old and worn, and just not cute. I didn't realize how much this would bother be (since our ceremony was VERY quick), until I saw our family pictures. The background is SOO ugly and ALLLLLLLLL of our family pictures are shot there. It's so bad. Brown walls and just awful-ness.
Also, I am just an insecure person in general, so I'm literally picking everything apart in each picture. I hate the profile of my face (my nose mainly), and literally 75% of the pictures of me are of my profile. Also, my eyelash is legit falling off from crying so much during our vows, and it's very noticeable to me in our later pictures. Ugh.
The photographer we got is AMAZING and did magic with what she was given. I just wish I liked the way I looked more and that our ceremony venue was more photogenic. I see all these amazing pictures on social media, and mine is just sooooooooooooooo underwhelming in comparison.
