Archive for 'Trash the dress'
Kiera is an aspiring model looking to build her portfolio so I met with her this evening to capture a few shots for her very need.
I had an amazing session this morning on Thornapple River at my friend, Heather’s home.
I walked down stairs to find a box that had not been open since 1999. Inside was Heather’s wedding dress just aching to come outside and enjoy a good soaking in the river.
What made this session more special was that since then Heather has had three wonderful children in which her two daughters, Lindsay and Allison, enjoyed getting in their flower girl dresses and jumped in the river with mom.
It was so fun to watch white gowns floating around in the river.
After watching his sisters having so much fun in the river with Mom, Sam, finally joined in on some of the fun and even got a few shots with his siblings.
He also made a great assistant when he wasn’t in the pictures.
I’ve been working on a new portfolio recently called Trash the Dress. It comes from the new movement called Trash the Dress. “It’s about creation, not destruction.” It’s a photo session that comes after the wedding day for brides (and sometimes grooms) who look for a creative way to photograph the wedding gowns worn during your wedding day. If this is something that sparks your interest please, contact me to set up a session. It is a lot of fun and no, you don’t necessarily need to spill paint all over your dress to trash it. We can come up with creative ways to make your photos unique.
