I think some brides LOVE it and some brides HATE it! I am not a trash-the-dress kind of girl. But I do think that some of the photos come out very artistically beautiful 🙂

I was thinking about it but didn’t have time. We already saw pictures from the burning dress a while back though. Definetly interesting but not sure if I would want to go that extreme.

You could also go to the store and get a cheap dress if you don’t want to have to worry about cleaning up your real one. Heck, even a white prom dress could work for TTD shots.

I like TTD shoots for the urban feel. Not so much a jump in a river with your dress. But with a session in a downtown or places you wouldn’t want to go on your actual wedding day.

Like the idea… Just dont want to “trash the dress” Would like to pass my dress on if I have a daughter! Just have a little fun and get a little dirty with the dress.

I have a friend who did a trash the dress after her wedding last year – the photos are fantastic and she didn’t do anything too crazy so after taking her dress to the dry cleaner it was perfect again. There are a lot of cool ideas that you can do where it won’t get paint or permanently damaged that still look really cool.
I also came across a photographer who does “Day after” photoshoots of the couple in their wedding clothes but looking a little disheveled (messy hair, tie off, shoes off etc.) like they just got up from the wedding night – those look really cool as well and work if you aren’t doing a gift opening and can hang onto the suit/tux an extra day.

We had a “trash the dress” photo session with our photographer (it was included in our photography package), but my dress didn’t get “trashed”. It just got a bit dirty around the bottom, and I think I ripped it at the very bottom a little bit at one point because I’m clumsy and I stepped on it, but I certainly did not want to “trash” the dress. I’m going to get it cleaned and it’ll be like new again — well, not quite “new” but almost, with just a small tear along the bottom. So I guess our TTD could be called a “post-wedding” photo shoot, since it was never my intention to get the dress trashed.

@cosmopolitan photography….i sooooo wish you were in my area!!!!!! bummer!!!
@MissAsB….i love that idea of the cheap dress. i really dont want to ruin my dress. the most that would happen is a little dirt on the bottom but if i had an extra cheap dress i could just have all kinds of fun with it!! i never even thought of that! 🙂

cosmopolitan Photography – Your post will probably be removed as the rules listed right above the text state that you are not allowed to “blatantly promote your company.” However, if you post in classifieds I’m sure you’ll find some interested brides.
I LOVE TTD sessions. I DONT love corny ones!
What is corny? ones that are done for the sake of being done and are done so wrong! From location, composition, editing, or just putting a girl in water for the sake of “omg, she’s in water?”
http://www.flickr.com/photos/mukhina/4350904527/in/pool-trashthedress (this one looks like the fell in… nothing about this says class or even, this is a portrait session.)
And some could have potential but are so poorly executed:
please don’t even make me try and explain why I don’t like “this”
What do I like?
Basically, if you’re going to go the water route, it needs to be styled, amazing, and not just “plunk them in the water, because it’s water, and if she has her dress in water it will turn heads.”
TTD I like because it gives an opportunity to get the people in the image without fear of the dress getting dirty. You can only do so much for a shot in a dress pre-wedding, but after… suddenly awesome dingy alley’s and trees and dirt isn’t scary 😉

I saw some really neat underwater TTD photos. I don’t have it in me to ruin my beautiful dress, but if I did, I think I would go more towards that route!!
That video was awesome! Thanks for sharing!
