A few of my favorite things, part II

Portraits....I have to admit, as much as I LOVE my photographer, I hated taking photos. Chris made me growl, twirl, pose in poses that are unnatural to my make-up as a human being and look off into far away lands.

Although I feel like I look horribly uncomfortable in most of my portraits, here are a few I adore:

I felt really silly taking these photos, but Chris was right, my eyes do look amazing, if I do say so myself!

We took like a gazillion "Jenn kiss D$ and now Jenn look at me while D$ kisses you" shots...and I guess for good reason, they are super cute!

Um, yeah. I bought this dress cause I got curves and it shows them off well.

We had a bit of help getting my veil to flip up like that. Chris's assistant would run up, flip the veil till the wind caught it, then run away...until this happened.

I understand feeling like you look incredibly stupid in pictures. I feel the same way, but some of yours look so awesome and cute.

It's funny but going through wedding pictures I'm finding I much more like the ones that I'm not in.

The lighting in that first photo is so lovely. Your mom should be very proud of that veil, the texture seems perfect. And I am looking at the cluster necklace....if it's the one you had on the blog, it's the one I voted for! Looks beautiful!

Nice wedding! I think you enjoyed your wedding as I can see in your pictures.. Wishing to enjoy your marriage life forever with your partner.

I know all about those "throw the veil and run away" pictures!

Gorgeous. I hated all my closeups. I look about 53 in them, ugh.

I think that's part of why I could never be a professional photographer. I would feel so goofy ordering people to canoodle and stuff.

Chris absolutely ROCKED your wedding. You should load the photos larger, so peeps can see them better!
