Trash The Dress

Also known as Fearless Bride or Rock The Frock, 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. Usually brides decide to have pictures taken on a beach, but other locations include city streets, rooftops, garbage dumps, fields, and abandoned buildings. Wikipedia – Trash The Dress

Do I have to trash my dress?

No, the beauty of a post-wedding shoot is that you can be as adventurous as you like. For some it’s a great opportunity to wear the dress all over again, and maybe get shots in a location that wasn’t available to them on their wedding day. Others may opt for the full Trash The Dress experience and end up in the grungiest of locations. It’s just a great and fun way of getting some unique fashion or lifestyle images that will compliment your existing wedding album. Remember… dry cleaning can fix just about anything

Someone else photographed our wedding, can we still do a Trash The Dress PhotoShoot with you?

Definitely, I love meeting new people with new ideas

How long will the PhotoShoot take?

Usually about an hour, depending on the locations you want

My husband isn’t keen on the idea of more photos, can I do it by myself?

Of course, whilst having both of you there makes a strong connection, I can just as easily do beautiful fashion or lifestyle images with just you, so don’t sit back if you want to do it

What do we wear?

Your wedding dress and maybe your wellies, your husband could wear a suit. For non brides a posh evening gown would be just as suitable. Or maybe even something from Cherlone-Dress

What if it rains?

No problem, we’re trashing a dress and the rain can really add to it and make for great images, but if you don’t like the rain, we could find a sheltered location or just rearrange the shoot
