A first trashing September 10, 2009
Contributed by Lizzy Sawdon
Carmen and her bridesmaids Kelly, Megan & Beth braved the cool afternoon at Pretty Beach, south of Port Douglas to be my first victims of Trash the Dress. We had fun frolicking in the sea, sand and what was left of the sun for an hour or so and Martine Cotton provided much appreciated assistance. Carmen and girls were willing to try anything and my blankets came in very handy for some shivering ladies!

Annielle & Dylan came to me to do a dress trashing shoot and despite the insanely cold water they were up to it.
The water was so cold it was truly painful, even for me just standing in it ankle deep, I’ve no idea how they managed to wade all the way in and even sit down in that icy water. Took more guts than I have!
It was a great shoot and despite me being pretty exhausted during it due to the flu during it I’m very happy with the results. Annielle & Dylan were great fun and love the photos, we are making a massive 18×14″ album for them for their trash shoot.

30th January 2009.Locations: Woodlands of Marburg and Cedar Creek Falls. Emma and Adrian were more than happy to do anything for Trash the Dress. We had great fun and captured some amazing images at both locations. What I love about the TTD sessions is that we have all the time in the world with no pressure.I recommend it to all brides that like to do something a little different and have a ball doing it.
Debbie’s Gold Coast TTD shoot April 15, 2009
Contributed by Vincent Swift.
Debbie has wanted to do a TTD shoot for ages, we have tried to do it a few
times but keep getting hit with bad weather or sickness.
When we did get around to doing the shoot it was no different, Debbie
wasn’t feeling her best, then she was caught in road works and was late to
the shoot, it was 4.30pm and light was going fast when we finally started
shooting, and then it started to rain, but like true professionals we shot
I was amazed at the results, the video and stills came out really well.

We did Nick & Evelyn’s wedding a few weeks ago and now it was time for the Trash the Dress shoot. For this TTD we were going to get the dress a bit wet and dirty, and try to be more creative we could normally be on a wedding day.
Trash The Dress Photoshoot October 8, 2008
Contributed by Michael Materazzi
I have three shots from a recent Trash The Dress Photoshoot. The day was rainy, gray, and offered little light. We used some 1200W spots, which were not nearly enough but as I don’t have a lot of equipment, I made due. This particular shoot was the concept of the filmographer. I was basically assigned to get what I could while not interfering with his film positioning, lighting, etc. However, I was allowed to set up the shot of the subject being doused with paint.
I used a Nikon D50 with wide angle lens. I was forced to use an ISO setting of 800, which as you know, is not ideal on a D50. Grain is apparent at over 100% viewing. Still, the shots are unique, especially the two with paint, and might offer a different perspective of Trashing the Dress. We took that concept literally.
The day was fun in spite of the bad conditions and many of those who have seen my work are inquiring about how they can do a similar shoot.
