This last weekend I had an awesome time with a group of photographers, both local & afar, doing a Trash the Dress workshop. It was a great experience of working alongside other professionals learning from each other & tossing around new ideas. I absolutely love networking with other photographers & this was the best time I've had doing it yet!
Anyways, we gathered up a group of models & shot a total of FOUR Trash the Dress sessions AND a Boudoir session within one days time! Let's just say I could barely move the next morning :o)
In case you are unfamiliar with what I'm talking about here's a definition from our friends at Wikipedia:
Trash the Dress Session: "Trash the dress refers to photographs that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is completely out of place. It is generally shot in the style of glossy beauty and glamour photography... It may also be done as an additional shoot after the wedding, almost as a declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will not be used again. It is seen as an alternative to storing the dress away, never to be seen again."
A Boudoir session in relation to photography, is becoming a new trend for brides-to-be. It is especially popular to do as a gift for your groom..... See examples below :o) Pictures speak louder than words!
Here's a sneak peek at a few photos from Erin's boudoir session.... Check back later for more from this session & also for all of the TTD sessions that followed!
PLEASE NOTE: WHILE ALL OF OUR BOUDOIR PHOTOS ARE SHOT VERY TASTEFULLY, THEY ARE RISQUE... SO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE... THEN DON'T SCROLL :o)
Thanks to my fellow photographer friends for such a great time this weekend!
