When we were planning for the wedding, I specifically said I do not want, I'm not interested in, please don't even crop our photos to be those headless shots. If you know me, which you all should by now (right?), I did my research. Our photographer wanted our likes and dislikes. She didn't need a list and I'm so grateful for that! However, I wanted to make sure she knew our style so I created a Pin board directly devoted to the photos I liked. I would show them to L when we got the chance and I'd delete the ones she was against. Come wedding time, we had a boat load of photos on that pin board. :) It gave our photographer a wide variety to choose from when it came to shooting the wedding. And even up until the week before, I was asking her to not do those headless shots. I had seen so many of them and I wasn't a fan. It was either ALL about the bride, clearly didn't work for us because there were two. Or, it was in a pose that just wasn't flattering.
Behold! Our photographers are amazing and have caused me to turn a new leaf. In the almost 1000 photos they gave us, there were seven headless shots. Just seven.
And I love them.
I don't know if it was the way she cropped/edited them or what but I love them. They have become some of my favorite photos of the day. I don't want to believe that having my chubby face cut out of the picture made them look good to me. So I won't but don't think that hadn't crossed my mind.
Regardless... here they are, the seven headless shots I thought I would hate but adore.
