Trash the Dress

What is trashing the dress?  I’ve been asked that a lot recently since I posted a photo on facebook from this session.  Trashing the Dress is donning your wedding dress one more time after your wedding day toWinnie The Pooh capture some unique and amazing photos. As a photographer, I was bursting at the seams for this session.  The moment Jamie (the bride) mentioned it to me, I started brainstorming ideas.  Having spent a considerable amount of time exploring O’ahu, I knew of an amazing spot with tide pools she and Yly could wade into while the sun set.

Was her dress truly trashed?  Not really.  It got a little salty and some edges were frayed on the straps, but that’s it, and in my opinion totally worth it because of the images we captured!  Even I was in the water with them, sporting my bikini and just a t-shirt or as Jamie called it “Winnie the Poohing.” I hope this trend catches on with more brides, because it was so much fun for all of us!
