Trash the dress…you really don’t trash it!!!!

Ok brides I’m sure you’ve heard about a fairly new type of photo session called “Trash the Dress”.

I have had many brides ask me that question so what’s it all about?

DigitalPix Photography Trash the DressThis type of photography began a few years ago in the US where some brides actually did tear up their wedding dresses but we have evolved since then. Today it’s really about taking photographs of the bride in her dress at a location or in a situation that would not be possible or advisable on the day of the wedding. An example of this would be a location shoot of a bride at a beach rolling around in the sand and water great images for sure but really not possible on the wedding day.

Trash the Dress Session with DigitalPixsThis type of photography achieves better results the day after the wedding or after the honeymoon. But don’t leave it to long; you want to be able to fit in the dress. Trash the dress sessions are extremely fun and creative. When meeting with my clients regarding their Trash sessions we discuss the location, props, posing and time of day all these components are important to achieve exceptional results. Hey let’s not forget our grooms these sessions work well with grooms alone or with the bride the images that be created as a couple are fantastic.

So if you’re looking for something different and creative that will produce some great images seriously give it a thought it’s only a dress!!!!!

Always fulfilling their client’s expectations and leaving them breathless with creative imaging surprises.  What else would you want?  A professional photographer with 30 years of experience, Jean Chartrand is available for weddings in the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal areas.

    I love these photo sessions! I enjoy seeing the creative ideas each bride comes up with for their “trash the dress” session. Like that hot tub picture – so cool!

    I once saw one where the bride a groom jumped off of a cliff into the lake, and the photographer created a sequence…it might even have been Digital Pixs, but it was pretty neat.

    Just to reply to Jessica yes that was us DigitalPixs. Our couple decided to jump off a cliff into a quarry that was a watering hole for them when they were kids. If you go to this link you can see the image we created for them.
