*** I should preface this post with the fact that Trashing The Dress is not everyone's cup of tea. Not everyone thinks or wants to deface their wedding gown that they love and probably paid a boat load of money for, but some people do. Lucii did not have a problem with Trashing her dress. I am not posting this to hurt anyone feelings or even to have a verbal shoot down on if TTD is right or not. This is just a photo session that I shot. If looking at Trash The Dress photos bothers you - you may want to leave now!
When Lucii asked me, way back in January, to be the photographer for her wedding, she knew then that she wanted to Trash her Dress.
I started getting some ideas of just how she should trash her dress and I thought the best (and coolest) way was to paint it and then burn it. I talked with Lucii and her idea and my idea of trashing the dress were completely different. LOL You see Lucii wanted to trash her dress with mud and dirt. Since Lucii bought and owned the dress - mud was the trashing media.
Alex (her brand new hubby) also joined in on the trashing. We all had a blast. I think I may have taken more photos trashing her dress than I did at her wedding!!
I am still editing the photos and I am not finished yet. Here are some of my favs so far. I also took home part of her wedding gown to make her a photo frame out of it, ya know, just as remembrance. I will post that when I get it finished.
And this is their little offspring - Paityne.
