To tell you the truth, I don't really love the term "trash the dress," because the dress usually....isn't. Trashed, that is. I haven't shot a session yet where the dress is actually ruined. Nothing a good cleaning can't take care of! And I speak from experience - I did a session myself, and my dress was none the worse for the wear!
But back to Cara and Dan...over the summer I was lucky enough to get to shoot their wedding in Evergreen, Colorado with Darbi G. You can see our pictures from their gorgeous wedding at this post. The next day, they were complete troopers and drove out to Red Rock Amphitheater just outside Denver. Despite photo fatigue all around, we got some AMAZING shots, so to combat the winter blues I thought I'd do a quick mini-post from the shoot! Be sure to also check out Darbi's full post on the session here to see her beautiful shots and some more of mine.
This could be one of my favorite shots EVER.
We played around with off-camera lighting, and I love the result!
Ok, I'll end with two shots that I actually took at the wedding the day before...you know what a sucker I am for gorgeous ring shots, and I just love these!
Ok, I lied. One more. This just makes me laugh. It's like a cross between American Gothic and Rene Magritte.
I had SO MUCH FUN shooting this couple...gorgeous AND fun - my favorite type! Cara and Dan and Darbi, thanks so much for letting me be a part of your day!
P.S. Be sure to check out Darbi's post for the surprise ending to the day.....
