I was really excited about photographing a “Trash the Dress” session for Helga and Peter, especially in Costa Rica. We went to the beach just as the tide started coming in and the sun was starting to set. The waves crashing against the rocks gave us a very dramatic backdrop. The plan all along was for Helga and Peter to get wet and have fun in the water, but there was a large wave that soaked them a little sooner than we expected! Even after the sun had set, we were able to continue the shoot since I was able to get some great shots using multiple flashes to light them. I had so much fun with them and I know they loved the session.
Trash the Dress sessions can easily be done here in Winnipeg. They offer the opportunity to have a fun, creative and intimate photo shoot and most importantly for a lot of brides, you get to wear your dress a second time! If any one is interested I would be happy to set up a session for this summer. Our fresh water in Manitoba means that you just have to air dry your dress after the session, and if you are really cautious there is always the option to take it to a dry cleaner that specializes in dry cleaning wedding dresses.
