Is anyone else out there dreading all the photos? I HATE having my picture taken at the best of times so know I am really going to be dreading all the photo taking at the wedding. May seem silly but I have always been like this and wouldnt even let my mam hire a photographer for my debs. When I have a drink on a night out I dont mind and even think that I can be quite photogenic but its the whole photographer and everyone looking at me thing.... I just get really nervous

Wasn't overly stressed about it but I did take care to find a photographer we got on really well with (met 5) and who would be quick. Our photos are more natural with only a dozen or so posed ones. Also I hated the idea of having photos taken in front of others (loads of cameras flashing, guests watching me posing :-8 ) so I ruled that out too. Try not to worry about it and find a really nice photographer.

I really dreaded it too, and told the photographer this on the last meeting. He didn't seem that bothered. But I had half practised getting a half decent smile so that I wouldn't look like I'm frowning in the pictures. I haven't seen my actual photos yet, but of those family ones I've seen I think most of them are pretty OK. And I was surprised at the ease of getting pictures taken on the day, for me anyway I just felt more confident, and with hair and make up done you'll feel fab! I look at all the pics of my MIL and she is scowling at someone for pointing a camera at her, or else hiding behind someone or some thing. I don't want my life's worth of pictures to be like that, so now I just try smile and let the picture be taken. Its awful to think you miss out on so many years of pictures of yourself / your life because you didn't feel right about a little pose! Sorry for the rant, but just try and keep it in mind, and you'll be different on your day too (hope so anyway).

I hate getting my picture taken too, mainly because I hate my teeth. I usually end up doing this ridiculous closed-mouth smile, its awful. BUT...have an appointment with an orthodontist this Thursday so I'm hoping to be sorted by the time the big day rolls around.
