Jen the “bride”, Renne’s wedding dress, and lots of fun. I can’t wait to do another one!

South Australian Trash the Dress

Filed under: Australia,photographers — trashthedressaustralia @ 2:31 am

We are fairly certain that this was the first ever Trash the Dress shoot done in South Australia (at least it is the first one we have found)

From the first moment that I discovered the Trash the Dress concept I knew I just had to shoot one. After meeting Monika and Lev a couple of times before their wedding I was sure that they would love Trash the Dress as much as I did. It only took one quick email to Monika and it was set, I was going to shoot my first Trash the Dress photos. We shot these photos only a few days after they returned from their honeymoon.

Once we got planning there was no end of people who wanted to be involved so on the day we had a videographer, a make up artist an a hair stylist all contributing to the amazing final result. These photos were shot on a popular suburban Adelaide beach on a warm evening and I will never forget the looks on some peoples faces when they saw what we were doing. At one point I looked over my shoulder to see about 50 people standing above us on the jetty and they all had their jaws hanging open in surprise. I think we almost spent as much time answering questions as we did taking photos.

Monika and Lev loved being the stars and we all fed of the buzz that was on the beach. Monika says that she had more fun at her Trash the Dress session than she did on her wedding day.

Extreme Sydney Trashing March 7, 2008

I’d chatted with Jessie about doing an extreme trashing of her dress. Of course this sort of ‘trashing’ is not for everyone… but she jumped at the opportunity. She wasn’t doing anything with her dress, and believe it or not … it was getting a bit tight on her. So we headed out with a pair of scissors and a sense of humor, and tried a few ideas out. It was my first total trashing of the dress and I think we got some pretty cool images from it.

Trash the dress by InHouse Studios March 5, 2008

“trash the what?” as most people would say!
Trash the Dress is a relatively new concept here but dress trashing sessions have been going on overseas for a while now. So what is it exactly?
It’s a session in your wedding dress and we….well….trash it! The idea behind trashing the dress is that 99.9% of wedding dresses go into their dry cleaning box and never see the light of day again. Lets face it, the likelyhood of your daughter wearing it is slim, you’re never going to make it shorter and wear it again (think 27 Dresses if you’ve seen the movie!) and you have photos of it looking glamourous from your wedding to look back on. So why keep it collecting dust and turning yellow in a box? You’re married, you’re in it for the long run, so why not show the ultimate commitment to your husband by trashing the dress!

The level of trashing is completely up to you, but the idea is to go out and get some awesome images of you doing things you never would have considered doing in it on your wedding day. Think lying in the dirt, getting it wet or just sitting around like you would on a normal day…but in your dress 🙂
It’s awesome fun and you’ll get some gorgeous images as a gift for your husband for his birthday or your next anniversary – cool huh?

another south coast trashing March 4, 2008

Erin & Nathan were married in January and when Erin saw a previous TTD shoot she was very keen to get involved. Nathan was not so keen initially, but on the day warmed to the idea and both had a lot of fun despite the very cold water in the rainforest scene and the huge swell at the beach.
