I’m so excited to be writing this post!!! After working on these images since Saturday, I’ve finally finished editing some of my favorite images from an amazing trash the dress shoot I did with one of my brides from 2007.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently on a trip to California (my home state), and was able to connect with Mindy who got married in her home state of Michigan, but lives about 5 minutes away from my parents in California (how’s that for a small world). Needless to say I’ve been e-mailing her since her wedding about doing a trash the dress session with her, and now that I’m finally out here… we made it happen!
We were going to get the dress wet, but couldn’t find any water that wasn’t freezing… nice though the weather is out here… but I did manage to get some AMAZING shots of Mindy… who I must say was simply stunning to photograph… and so easy to work with. We had a great time, in and around the shoot… and here are some of the pictures from the TTD session.
We started out at place I used to ride my bike to when I was a kid… up in the hills about 3 miles from my parents house.
Then we drove to a nearby (but somewhat hidden) national park. I say hidden, because it was buried at the end of a residential street, and easily missed. Right off the bat we scored this awesome old VW bug (a favorite car of mine), as well as an old barn with all the fixin’s.
Deeper into the park was this cool cement remains from a building that used to be in the park area.
