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!
