Trash the Dress

Erica and Danny's post wedding photo shoots (and a recent post on the very cool shop friends) inspired me to write about a popular phenomenon that has hit the wedding photography scene known as the "Trash the Dress" session. After the wedding, brides- and frequently their grooms!- put their wedding wear back on and head to a beautiful and/or fun location of their choice for some really creative photos and let loose. Here is an exerpt from, started by the super talented Mark Eric:
"Go ahead, you know you want to. Trash it. Get it dirty. Get it wet. Roll around in the mud. Drench it in the ocean. Totally trash it. Why? … Why not? You’ve made a commitment to your husband. He’s your one and only true love, right? Then you’ll never need the dress again. And no, your daughter won’t wear it in 20-30 years. So you have two choices: 1) Suffocate it in plastic and throw it in a closet 2) Show your husband how committed you are by trashing the dress, and get some great fun pictures while you do it!"
As they say on the site, "It's about creation, not destruction..." So talk to your photographer today about a post wedding TTD session!
