This TTD session was shot in the Lower Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. After several weeks of cancelling due to bad weather, we were finally blessed with a gorgeous autumn day. The water was close to freezing, but Jenna put on a brave face and let me capture some amazing images.

After two hours taking the usual (and some not so usual) bridal photos of Alicia at Blackalls Park, see exhibit A & B – I asked if she was interested in going for a swim at the local heated swimming pool. To my surprise she said yes.

TTD in ACT May 25, 2008

We were very lucky to have an amazing model (Nina) who helped make the day a fantastic experience for the four photographers who dragged her around old rail yards and the run down brick works.

It was interesting to see the way in which each person interpreted a possible shot and how they made use of the various backgrounds and poses.
The shoot went all day and these are only a fraction of what I took.

Trash the dress – Mustang style May 14, 2008

These guys love Mustangs and it was only fitting to grab one for a trash the dress session. Dejana and Robert were really keen on the idea of a TTD session so off we went out to the back farms of Sydney. We had a plot to the story on the day and we went for it. No time limits and no constraints and we didn’t hold back! These guys were brilliant and up for a challenge.

These images were from one of the locations on the day.

Gold Coast Spit TTD May 12, 2008

On Sunday afternoon I went down to the Gold Coast to do another “Trash The
Dress” shoot. I have photographed Nicolas family previously, and when she
came to my studio for her family portrait viewing she saw my “Trash the
dress” print on the wall. When i explained what it was she was very keen
to do a shoot as well.

Nicola has been married a while but it was a great excuse to wear the
wedding dress again, I think a lot of brides never expect to wear there
dress again, so when you can present a opportunity too, they jump at it.
Having such a very different concept of what sort of images I want to
create, people really embrace at the opportunity of doing something a
little different and a bit outside the square.

This was a little different as we had some of the bridal party to trash
too, the shoot was done on the north side of the gold coast spit where the
water is calm and there are very few waves. This gave me the opportunity
to do something different from my other shoots.

Greg Norris came along to second shoot for me and got some fantastic
images of the kids together, also he was a great to have help in trying to
perfect my overhead shots. (Still working on them, but getting there).

Thanks to Nicola & Justin for being so much fun to shoot.

Wollongong Trashing May 9, 2008

When I found out about the Trash the Dress Trend earlier this year I emailed all of my previous brides to see who was up for the adventure. Naomi was still on her honeymoon and responded with a resounding “Yes”. Her husband Jesse didn’t think she would go through with getting wet, so he was totally impressed with her by the end of the shoot when she had done an almost full submersion!

TTD – Traralgon May 7, 2008

Filed under: Australia,photographers,VIC — trashthedressaustralia @ 12:32 pm

I was first introduced to the Trash The Dress concept by my good friend Craig Wetjen. I must admit I loved the idea but thought It would not work out here in country Victoria, however, I just wanted to shoot at least one (trash the dress) even if I had to buy a cheap dress and get one of my favourite brides that would be willing to get involved in it with us for a day of awesome photography. Well as history has it we never got the chance to do this shoot…….

Enter Taryn & Richard, they are a couple who were most disappointed with their wedding photography (I didn’t shoot the wedding). They heard of Trash The Dress while sitting on a table of newly weds at a friends wedding. Taryn had seen our work on a slide show at another wedding just a month before and thought of us to do her Trash The Dress shoot, if she could convince her husband to let her do this as he had just had the dress dry cleaned.

So on the 18th of April it happened, our first Trash The Dress shoot, (I think I could quite safely say, the first Trash The Dress shoot in country Victoria) Taryn had been counting down the sleeps for 2 weeks prior to this day, and in the words of her husband ‘she was more excited the morning of the trashing then the morning of their wedding’.

I had Craig join me for the day, we started at an old abandoned house here in Traralgon where we spent nearly 2 hours shooting. We then moved on to the old rail yards and then down to the beach, which was a total blast. It was one of the most amazing days of shooting I have had in over 12 years of photography.

Thanks Taryn & Richard for a fantastic day and awesome images.
