The Dress "Trash The Dress"

A fun, creative session that provides you with one more opportunity to wear your fabulous wedding dress!!!

Why would anyone deliberately destroy their wedding dress during a photo shoot? For funzees!

"The Dress" photo shoot is for a bride who's looking for something a little different and who's a realist ... she knows that she'll never wear her gown again. The images can be a great addition to any album or wedding collection. It's for what I call "the love of photography" and certainly a freeing experience for both the photographer and couple. The rulebook is tossed aside and anything goes! Your imagination is your only limitation. The beach, a finger-painting party, champagne and strawberries - the object is to make it yours and truly own it! Most of all, its just really, really fun!

Kudos go to a guy named John Michael Cooper (according to Wikipedia), who originally packaged the whole trash-the-dress concept.

This is our favorite shot from one of our "The Dress" sessions. Lisa was fun and full of spontaneity!!! She was not afraid to get wet! This image involved some time (fortunately, Lisa's patient too! haha) -- waiting and being ready to snap the shutter at the precise time to record the true beauty of the bride and the wave. I am a junkie for moments and get a thrill each time I capture it.

A sequence from the shot:

An interesting story is attached to this session. It was assembled rather quickly after the Bride's wedding. She came in from California and we had one day to put it all together. She didn't have a dress with her so our quest began! We found a quaint little boutique called The Bridal Garden in East Greenwich where we able to score a beautiful dress for a complete steal and off we went!

Love the boots! WOOHOO!!!
