Des Moines Wedding Photographer | Trash the Dress | Amanda & Ronnie

I know there are a lot of brides out there that hear the words ‘trash’ the dress and feel horrified.  Up until now I haven’t had any examples to show and reassure you that we are not (unless you want to) actually ‘trashing’ the dress.  This type of session is merely just a session in your wedding dress that you would not do on your big day for fear of getting dirty.  Some DO take it to the extreme of rolling in mud and I am all for it if that’s what you want, but you don’t have to!  This bride did get in the water and roll around in the sand a bit and in the end all her dress looked was wet.  This session can be whatever you want it to be!  Happy, serious, sexy, with or without your husband.  Or even some of everything!  They are sooo much fun to do!  This is going to be a pretty long post because I really want to show a lot of examples of this.  I had so much fun with this session and they were troopers!!  Thanks again Amanda & Ronnie! 🙂

I also want to note, you don’t have to be just married to do one of these.  You can be married for 5, 10, 20 years.  You get the point.  It sort of symbolizes the fact that you will (hopefully) never wear it again. 🙂
