I hate to say it, but it's true, cell phone pics do not always give the best representation.
I have a colleague that is working with a bride who fell head over heels in love with her bridal gown, finished all the necessary paperwork, ordered the dress and was completely happy, until .... she started studying the cell phone snapshots.
Now she is second guessing her choice all because of a picture taken at an unflattering angle.
I would just encourage all brides not to rely too much on cell pics when making this monumental decision. Rely on what you are seeing in the mirror and how you feel in your gown. Also, keep in mind that your "real" photos will be immensely different because you will have your whole look together; hair, makeup, and accessories all make a big difference in how your gown looks. Professional photog's also know how to capture "your good side". :)
