Trash The Dress : {also known as “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock”}.  TTD is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing in a unique environment.  It is generally shot in a style most prominent in fashion and stylized photography.

This session should be one of the most fun and memorable part that comes after your wedding day has passed.  It gives you the opportunity to do something that you wouldn’t ordinarily do with your wedding dress. Trash the Dress represents a symbolic act – after all the fuss and hype of the big day, it can be an act of rebellion against the image of the traditional bride. Also, it can be a chance to feel like a fashion model for a few hours while wearing and enjoying one of the most significant pieces of clothing you will ever own.  It’s worth adding that you don’t actually have to trash your dress and important thing is that you forget about the dress and just have fun, and this is what comes across in the photos.

One of the most frustrating questions that brides are facing is whether or not buying an extravagant gown is really worth it? After all, you only wear your gown one time, and then it will most likely spend the remainder of its life hanging in the back of your closet. Seeing as brides are expecting to spend thousands of dollars on one dress, the gown should certainly be utilized to its fullest potential.
