Jungle Love: The Panthers Get Posin’

November 24, 2013

It’s funny – you spend months and months of time planning what you and your future-husband will look like in your wedding photos. We agonize over every little detail, and we go through countless fittings and trials to make sure the look will be executed to perfection. But how many of us actually practice posing? Sometimes, I wish I had. I love how our wedding portraits came out, but damn, am I awkward. Thank goodness Raw Photo Design realized that the pictures would come out better if they avoided my face.

Kidding, kidding! There are plenty of photos with our faces in them. But seriously, that one is one of our very favorites from the entire day. So is this next one.

We spent a lot of time on that beautiful rock wall.

And we had to grab some shots on the rocky beach, which was one of my favorite things about the Inn at Longshore.

By the way, have I mentioned how hot and sunny it was on our wedding day?! I really shouldn’t complain – we were SO lucky to have sunshine – but I could barely keep my eyes open … as you can see below.

But again, I can’t complain, because we got photos in which the sky looks like this:

Hopefully, you can’t tell how sweaty I was.

We grabbed a couple individual pictures, too. Doesn’t Mr. Panther look handsome?

And then there was me, trying not to squint and failing miserably.

Our photographers also made sure to get some cheesy smile-at-the-camera shots, just in case any family members wanted them.

Gotta have the prom pose!

We look kind of like secret agents in this one:

This last one is probably the most accurate. We look what we were: happy.

How will you prepare for your wedding portraits? Married ladies, did you feel as awkward as I did?
