Trashing a Dress with Rachel and RJ

We absolutely love it when one of our brides wants to experiment by shooting something new and creative, so when we were approached by Rachel to do a “Trash The Dress” shoot we were so excited!!!

For those of you who don’t know, Wikipedia defines “Trash The Dress” as:

“A style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place. It is generally shot in the style of fashion and glamour photography. “Trash the dress” is the art of destruction or deconstruction of a brides wedding dress to create a new “artwork” that the bride would be proud to display on their wall. This new “masterpiece” is formed in the creative destruction of the dress. This will normally be portrayed in a sequence of images or simply a single image.”

So, in the spirit of “Trash The Dress”, we headed for the beach to attempt the destruction of a dress and to create some amazing artwork for the bride and groom. ;) We had a great time shooting and Rachel and RJ were so open to trying everything we suggested.  It was such an awesome time! Thank you Rachel and RJ!

So brides, if you’re feeling creative and don’t mind messing up your dress a little, we are ready to try something new!  Now take a minute to look at the shots we captured.  We love them and we hope you do too!  Enjoy!

Love. Texture. 

An honest loving moment

    When I read “trash the dress” I was expecting to see a bunch of kids coloring on it with crayon or the bride eating ribs and wiping her hands on it. But instead I saw gorgeous photos! What a fun idea! :)
