Trash The Dress!

Trash the dress — The plan? Throw paint at Robyn in a wedding dress.

We shot these less than 24 hours ago, and I was excited to share them, so I stayed up all night editing. (Disclaimer: I did not actually stay up the entire night)

Robyn is a wedding coordinator from Cambridge. She’s not a model, but did an amazing job yesterday! I’m thinking she watched some America’s Next Top Model to get prepare. It’s funny, T.V. can actually teach you things you can apply in real life! (Other than how to run around Amsterdam on go-see’s)

Things started out with a regular little photo session. Then little Olivia painted Robyn’s dress for her. I can’t show pictures of the process just yet, as Olivia’s mom has to approve the photos first.

We shot this all at an industrial building in Kitchener. It was November, and it was cold out, so everything was done inside. 90% of the shots here were ambient light only (no flash), which is my preferred way of working. I just look for good light coming in through windows. Easy.

Marshall Angus videographered the entire adventure, and I’m excited to see what he captured.

Anyways, on to the photos:

This one is my favorite of the day.

Alright, so that was Sunday’s trash the dress session. We have an amazing plan for TTD#2. Oh, and if any of my previous (or future) brides are contemplating this, let me know, and we’ll get some ideas on the table. I want trash the dress shoots have to become part of my weekly photo schedule. They’re so much fun. If you don’t want to use your own dress, with some modifications, Value Village dresses can cut it.

That’s all for now. Look for some photos from my Vegas / L.A. adventure sometime later this week!

February 22, 2009 - 9:19 pm bruce - Hi! Found your photos tonite, very well done. My question is would the painted gown be for sale? WE are having an anniversary this spring and in need of a gown, one like this would add "colour" to the event. We live in Kitchener rather close to the event. Would you kindly respond or have the bride, regarding our request by email . thank you bruce

February 23, 2009 - 7:27 pm Taylor Jackson - Sorry everyone, the dress isn't for sale -- but if you can provide me with a dress, I'll gladly get someone to trash it, photograph it, and give it back to you. Taylor
