Katie Trashes the Dress... my dress, actually

I really dig the whole trash the dress concept. Really. It's so cool to introduce a little fashion photography into wedding photography. I"ve talked to quite a few people about it, and to most, the thought of trashing a perfect white dress seems a little scary, which is totally understandable :). But, for those of you who may be interested in seeing a little more of what trashing the dress can look like, I hosted this session. I asked Katie to model for my friend Kristen and I for a tame version of a trash the dress shoot ;). Although it was really cloudy and even started to rain a few times, we still had a great time! I'm still editing through them, but I couldn't wait to share a few! Here are some of my favs so far:

Katie just got back from Japan where she got this awesome tattoo that she designed herself.

Funny story behind this dress... I wanted to get a dress off ebay since we were planning on it getting a little dirty, so all summer long I bid on dresses with no luck. Right when September hit, though, that all changed. In two days, I won 4 dresses. Yeah, that's right. FOUR wedding dresses! My my my... how quickly the ebay wedding dress market can change!

I have another tame trash the dress session come soon featuring Micah and Meg! We met up yesterday to go downtown, and I can't wait to show off how cute these two are!

If you're interested in scheduling a trash the dress session, shoot me an email! Oh, and if you don't want to trash your own dress... I may have a few lying around :).

That is cool. She's pretty and the dress looks amazing.
I'm like you, I don't think I could ever trash my dress. Ebay was a good idea.
