If you follow my blog, you’ll know that I photographed Kimberly and Brian’s wedding just a few weeks ago. Then, a week or so after the wedding, Kimberly called and mentioned that she wanted to do a “Trash the Dress” session. You probably don’t know this, but I’m not a big fan of the “trash the dress” movement. Too often, I feel that photographers are putting a bride in water or “dirty” situations just because that’s what other photographers are doing. Since I’m very much a non-lemming kind of guy, I was committed to shooting this session in a fashion forward way that reflects my own style of photography.
We met this morning at 7:30 AM at the pier. The fires are really kicking up tons of smoke so the sky wasn’t very pretty and the light was kind of brown, but we still ended up with some great images. We spent just a little over an hour creating these images. I’m very happy with the results and I hope Brian and Kimberly feel the same way.
