Trash the Dress – Prom Edition

While throwing around ideas with Tabatha for her outdoorsy Senior Sessions it was quickly apparent she was up for something a bit different. I’ve been working with more and more cool clients that have been completely game to try something a bit different than my previous shoots, and I like it. From the responses to seeing their photos I’d say the efforts have paid off!

Once we got talking, I mentioned the whole concept of the Trash the Dress shoots we had in summers past. Creation, more than destruction – getting a new look by not being afraid to take a bridal gown somewhere that would mess it up, muddy it down, or get it wet. It instantly struck up an idea –

Enter a new twist on our bridal themed TTD shoots – Trash the Prom Dress.

While I hoped for a bit more sunlight after the first set out on a tree over a pond, I have to say I loved the addition of the storm clouds that started to move in for a good weekend of downpours.

Always great to work with creative subjects not afraid to go out on a limb -or fallen tree trunk- to try a new idea for a new look.

The more ideas and involvement you give us the more the creative energy gets going to make your photos that much more uniquely yours. Go ahead, drop me a line and fire away to see what I do for you!
