Every couple getting married dreams about great memories saved in pictures. The perfect scenario is that the pictures are taken by a professional photographer. That way, it is almost inevitable that the pictures turn out well. Also, professional photographers usually have great ideas for both partners that help underline beauty and grace. The proof is in the pictures on the page.
Here you can see the bright example of how beautifully the bride can destroy the wedding dress. Of course, not literally and not as the main goal. The other name for such a photoshoot is trash the dress. It usually is great fun and leaves you with a huge number of absolutely amazing pictures worthy of attention and full-size printing.
What is trash the dress photoshoot about?
It is a photoshoot where the bride doesn’t really care about the dress. She gets it wet, runs in it, gets it covered in sand, lets the wind play with it and whatever else you can imagine. It doesn’t mean that the dress is ruined after it, though you probably won’t be able to sell it for the full price after such a fun event. However, that is the main point – to be ready to wreck the wedding dress in the name of beautiful pictures.
Different photographers may come up with different ideas, though the main concept is to have fun and play hard. Many couples having a Caribbean wedding choose this type of photoshoot to have fun and build memories at the same time.
For example, heroes of the photoshoot you see on this page – Dilyara and Ahmet. Just look at their happy faces, and the way the sun and ocean contribute to their beautiful outfits. They don’t worry about anything, just play with the waves and breeze, enjoy the beautiful day and each other. That is truly a recipe for the perfect wedding photoshoot with trashing a wedding dress.
How to get ready for the trash the wedding dress photoshoot?
Getting ready is pretty simple. First of all, you need to find a photographer whose pictures you really like. Discuss rates right away and make sure they are fine for you. Don’t limit yourself with too little time as you will probably need some time to get used to being photographed and fully relax (unless both of you are professional models).
Don’t skip thinking about the outfit. It is the most important part. As the whole deal is called “trash the dress”, the bride should be absolutely calm and happy about actually ruining it. Under these circumstances, it might not be the best option to borrow an expensive dress and worry about it the whole time. It’s better if the dress is simple and made of natural materials. You definitely don’t want to feel too hot or rip the skirt right away. Comfort is top priority here.
The same goes for the shoes (if you decide to have any at all). Absolutely no high heels as wearing them in sand is simply impossible. Additionally, it rarely looks balanced. Being barefoot might be the best option. However, depending on a bride’s style, there are many options of flat-soled shoes to add value to the image.
Best location to trash the dress
This wedding memories photo technique is especially popular for Caribbean weddings. Of course, there is almost always sunlight, wind, white sand and warm water beneath your feet. Seems like the best place to be running around the beach and making wonderful pictures. However, make sure you check the weather forecast beforehand so as not to be disappointed. Seasons change even at locations where the summer seems infinite.
There are also lots and lots of Punta Cana resorts with direct access to breathtaking beaches and forest streams. Any couple can find a perfect place corresponding with their inner state. Some like luxury everywhere, for others nature is more important. Look through the pictures of different possible locations and decide which one feels right for your couple. Dilyara and Ahmet obviously found theirs, which one will be yours?
Most photographers have plenty of trash the dress ideas; however, it is always safer to see some examples created by this or that particular professional. You are also always welcome to bring your own ideas or show some pictures that you liked before the photoshoot. It will give you more chances of getting exactly what you want.
