Trash the dress is not a literal thing

ajenns Trash the Dress

So many of my clients hear “trash the dress” and get scared.  They think the name is literal.  Most of the time the dress will actually come out cleaner than the day of the wedding.  Fresh water and sand will not damage the dress.  There is still hesitation though.  For those who have that “priceless” dress or shoes and would never imagine putting them at risk, you can always get away with a good substitute.

 Here one bride got a second pair of “spicy” shoes to bring to the trash the dress session.  She didn’t invest a whole lot in the shoes and dress so it was no risk.  The dress  was <$100 and the shoes were < $20.   

So next time the photographer asks you about this kind of session, don’t worry.  There are many options in capturing those super rare once in a lifetime photos!
