The whole idea of a ‘Trash the Dress’ shoot is to photograph a bride who isn’t precious about dirtying her dress, and is prepared to unleash an uninhibited persona in the not so “standard” poses and locations commonly used on a wedding shoot. On Friday September 14th, we had 6 photographers, 2 videographers, 2 hair stylists, a makeup artist, a willing “bride+groom” and 1 dress to trash. Locations were Collingwood and Port Melbourne. Are there any brides out there prepared to stand in a drain pipe, in the ruins of a parking lot and IN the water at the beach?! Below are only a choice few of the photos I took on the day and as soon as the video is compiled I will post it here. A special thank you to Natalie – our “bride” Daniel – our “groom”, Dani and Renee our hair stylists, Laura our makeup artist and the video guys Cam and Steve. What an awesome day!
