I don’t think that goes too far for “trash the dress”. Trash the dress means trash it 😛 burning it doesn’t seem like too much to me. I do think the “feel” of the pictures is kind of weird though. I wouldn’t personally want to remember the event that way, but to each their own.
I have no intention on keeping my wedding dress, but I would probably donate it rather than destroy it.

@stephanie63087: I know. I thought the same thing the first time I saw it. I think its crazy sexy and totally something I would do, minus the gun.

blargh, I took a great art class in college that was called “Radical Image” we reviewed stuff by Andres Serrano, Maya Deron, David LaChapelle among others. This work looks like the work done by students in that class.
I don’t think I have a problem with the burning of the dress, the lighting of the images is interesting enough, but the music and the props in the video are over the top. That’s what I don’t like, the artist is trying too hard, I always really dislike that. And it’s not like he’s a bad photographer either! Taking a look at his blog, he has some great use of color and framing. I’m probably being too harsh on his work, but even as someone who enjoys the absurd and doesn’t mind a good trashing of the dress, this is just not my taste.

I think that the photos and video are amazing. I would love to meet the couple. One of the big things we all try to do is make things related to our weddings representative of “us.” Maybe they did exactly that. The gun scene is extremely similar to the scene in Mr and Mrs Smith, if that was the inspiration, I think that it is great. The shoot meshes really well with the location. I love it all.
I also don’t think that it is wrong for her to burn her dress. It makes about the same sense to me as shoving it in the closet for the next 60 years.

While this TTD is not my taste, I appreciate the artistry. I really want a TTD (my mom is an art photographer), but I will not sacrifice my beautiful dress for it. I bought a $100 dress for the TTD, and am really excited about it. I will by no means go to that extreme, but can’t wait to see what my mom came up with.

Wow – i could never do that. Very bold!

The site wasn’t working for me, but I’m not generally a fan of TTDs. There are TONS of people who could use them and it just seems wasteful, I guess.
@belgium4: That is amazing. The world needs more people like you.

I wonder if they really burn the dress or just a mass of white material to make it look like the dress. I couldn’t imagine burning my dress. If I didn’t want it, I would sell or donate it.
