Trash the dress…

My good friend Sarah came to me a couple months back and said that she was interested in scheduling a “Trash the Dress” shoot.  For those of you not familiar, ‘Trash the Dress’ has gained some popularity recently.  What happens is, after a woman gets married she wants to do portraits in her wedding dress without caring if the dress gets dirty.  Typically the goal is to get it dirty or wet… or a combination.  I’ve seen brides who get on and horseback ride in their dress, brides who use paint, and brides who just go for a swim.  I was excited for this new experience.

Sarah and I went to Duke Gardens and had a great time.  She is a more traditional bride and wanted to get her dress wet and also have some more traditional portraits done.

My favorite photo from the day I think.  It’s one of those times when a photo came out exactly how  I intended it to.  I hope that I have the opportunity to do more trash the dress sessions.  I would love to do one at the beach!
