Trash the Dress
Slide Rock, Sedona
I never fully understood “trash the dress” sessions until now. What is the point of spending hundreds or even thousands on a wedding dress only to destroy it after the wedding. Sure I get that it could be fun to celebrate the completion of your wedding and capture some un-conventional shots. Sometimes the groom joins in and sometimes it’s just the bride.
This particular “trash the dress” or “rock the frock” session had much more meaning as just a few days before this former bride signed her divorce papers. Unfortunately, happily ever after was not in the cards for this bride but she made the best of a not so great marriage and had the courage to step away. Not only for her future happiness but the happiness of her young son. Sometimes these things happen so why not make the best of it!
For several months she had attempted to sell her old wedding dress with no luck. So we chatted and decided we would try something different that could actually free her from her past. What a fun way to liberate herself and move forward with her life.
The best part of this day was she was surrounded by butterflies throughout this entire shoot. They just kept popping up.
Way to go! I am so honored to be your friend and watch you continue to grow. You are one strong and brave lady.
