After a few years (we’ve been together six years total) she permitted a few if no one else saw them.”We got married two weeks ago.

“She confessed that she paid him extra not to photograph her. She didn’t want to worry about someone taking pictures of her on her special day. “Our families are asking for wedding pictures and I don’t know what to tell them. Also, I’m really mad myself and I can’t seem to let this go, even though it’s been a couple days. What do I do?” “I wanted a picture of my wife to remember how she looked on that special day.
