We have some of the most amazing natural scenery up here, so shooting this “Trash the Dress” session at a spectacular waterfall on The Atherton Tablelands was a great day out, combing two of my life passions: photography and the great outdoors! It was heaps of fun too!

Photographing Lidia and Doug’s wedding in May last year was such a pleasure that they were my first choice candidates for a “trash the dress” photo session! I was pretty sure that Lidia would be up for anything! And she was! Her and Doug were great! We had a bit of a hike to get to the location and the water was quite chilly, but they were not deterred!

TTD regulars get awards at QAPPA April 15, 2008

Filed under: Australia,photographers,qld — trashthedressaustralia @ 12:58 pm

Ben Rugers from Inifinity Studios and Deb Amsler and Michaela Elphick from Bliss Photography are both contributers to this site. So we were pretty excited when both won 2 silvers each at the recent QAPPA.

With so many talented photographers in QLD the 2008 EPSON AIPP Queensland Professional Photography Awards was always going to be hotly contested; so getting 2 silvers is fantastic.


And here we have 2 images by Infinity Studios that received the silver awards.


Trash the dress – Brighton Beach

After I posted some images of my first Trash the Dress photo shoot on a popular wedding forum I was contacted by quite a few brides who wanted to do a shoot. These photos of Teresa and Shane were shoot at Brighton beach in Adelaide shortly after they returned from their honeymoon. After carrying all my lighting equipment to th beach I realized that it was high tide and that I wouldn’t be able to use any of it. The beach had disappeared and the water was lapping at the rocks. I love it when this sort of thing happens because you really have to think on your feet and the images we managed to capture I probably wouldn’t have thought of doing if it had been low tide. despite both Teresa and I struggling to keep our balance on the slippery rocks (I almost took my camera for a swim) we all had a great time and we all love these photos. I hope you all enjoy them too.

I took my models out for some fun to Shorncliffe Pier – well fun for me, maybe not so much for them!! It was a miserable day with gale force winds…but the girls were so very uber cool, and willing to do pretty much anything I asked of them!!!!

I get so much joy out of Trash the Dress Sessions…and they don’t always have to be just wedding dresses either!

TTD in the playground and on the beach April 10, 2008

Sasha & Matt came to me after getting married in January. They were really keen on having some images taken on some children’s playground equipment. So off we headed to a huge children’s park to wait our turn for a go on the different equipment. We just happened to pick one of the busiest days of the year and there were kids everywhere all of them just loving the fact that a Princess Bride and her Prince were prancing around playing too. After some fun at the park we headed to the water, stopping along the way for some fun amongst the sand dunes and dead trees (Sounds lovely doesn’t it!). The tide was coming in so we nearly lost our camera bag a couple of times, but I guess that the price you pay for awesome photos!
