Trash the dress wedding photography

'Trash the Dress' does not mean that your expensive wedding dress will necessarily be destroyed!

Trash the Dress, also known as 'Fearless Bride', 'Drown the Gown' or 'Rock the Frock', is a style of wedding photography that contrasts the sumptuous elegance of a wedding gown and a beautiful bride with an environment in which they are out of place - for example a rusty industrial site, an abandoned building or a river, waterfall or beach. It is generally shot in the style of modern fashion and glamour photography where the contrast between the surroundings and the bride create a heightened awareness of her and her gown.

On her wedding day, a bride probably looks the best she is ever going to look: her body is toned and in great shape, her hair and make-up look stunning, and she is wearing a beautiful gown that probably cost her a small fortune.

After the wedding, her dress gets carefully packed away and will probably never be worn again. Her daughter will not want to wear her mother's out-of-fashion dress a lifetime later, and most brides will never marry again, and even if they do, almost never in the same dress.

So why not put that toned body and stunning dress to good use?

Once you are back from honeymoon, contact AstraPics to discuss a Trash the Dress shoot that will provide you with some highly unusual pictures. Depending on what you would like, your dress may require nothing but a dry-clean to get it as good as new again, but if you are daring, the shoot may damage the dress by getting it wet, dirty or torn  - it's all up to you how far you want to push the concept.

The good news is that we do not need to have been your wedding photographers, and you do not even need to have been a bride. Trash the Dress can be applied to any woman or clothing. If the idea appeals to you, contact us to discuss it.
