cara and dan : colorado trash the dress

Since it's TWO DEGREES here, I thought I'd take a break from some of the seasonal posting and post a shoot from over the summer...Cara and Dan's "trash the dress" session.

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.

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.
