hey bees! was wondering if anyone has done an underwater trash the dress session in the virgin islands??? i can’t seem to find anything online for any photographers who do this…i see lots of trash the dress shots, but they are all just standing in the water, and that’s not what i’m looking for… i want something like this:

@djenah79: I used Blue Glass Photography in USVI and I had a TTD the day after the wedding. I didn’t go under water b/c it wasn’t something I was interested in but they are one of the best in St Thomas. I suggest contacting them and seeing if they are able to! Alan was my photographer and he is one of the owners. I’d ask for him! Good luck!

@djenah79: Make sure they have safety equipment and personnel before getting in the water, especially if you have a big dress. A bride drowned last year doing a TTD photoshoot underwater because the dress got saturated and too heavy for her to swim in it. A cenote should be safer than a river but it’s better to be safe than dead. http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/08/27/maria-pantazopoulos-bride-drowns-during-trash-the-dress-photoshoot-in-canada_n_1832425.html

I’d proceed with extreme caution. You have to be experienced and properly equipped to perform one of these sessions. properly done it should cost you anywhere from $2000-$5000 for this type of shoot. It’s nothing your typical wedding photographer can do.
