Trash the dress – Mount Dandenong April 8, 2008

It took me awhile to find the right person for my first dress trashing session. Alot of people thought I was insane and alot of people did not want to do anything to their dress. Enter Leigh – married a few years ago, her dress has just been sitting there…waiting…

From our first email exchanges back and forth I knew that this girl would be up for anything. So we set up a day, booked the wonderful Annie to do make up and off we went. Melways in hand and a rough idea of what we wanted we set forth on our adventure. We started off in the Mount Dandenong area and found a great little creek (thank goodness for recent rains!) of course while we were there in the freezing stream a little old man was filling up water bottles in the creek….he seemed a bit bemused and offered suggestions before going on his way. Then we headed down to black rock beach where at one stage we had a fair few people on the looking down at us from the lookout….Leigh, being the obliging girl that she is, gave them a little wave before hiking up a saturated wedding dress and scaling a cliff face! I had a blast and the email I received from Leigh this morning makes me think she did too!

“I just wanted to thank you for your time and efforts yesterday. I not only enjoyed the experience immensely, but spending the day with you was like spending the day with a good friend. Your fun attitude and humorous personality really helped make the day into a adventure, and I doubt anyone else could have done a better job. Not only were you fun to work with, but your professionalism as a photographer and someone whom is dedicated to her art, shone through.”

    yes you are on yr way to some great ttd art. anyone who claims that ttd is *not* about the dress, however, needs to see and appreciate #3. to me, top-notch ttd should focus at least one shot on the dress detail, be it water dripping off, sand caught in beading etc.

    I look forward to seeing more of this solid and creative work! cheers JB 🙂
