all around good guy, friend, and photographic genious john michael cooper was on the today show this morning talking about doing some awesomely non-tradional photos of brides in their wedding dress.
if you missed it you should definitely check out the video here.
as an added bonus to go along with the story, the today show website posted images from a handful of talented photographers,
and two of ours :)
this type of portrait session was created by john michael cooper to be different from the mainstream. some of us saw what john was doing and were so inspired that we gave it a try, putting our own talents to the test. eventually it was dubbed “trash the dress.” the media caught on and sent that buzzword flying around the globe. i think it was right about that time when john’s original vision was muddied. (pun intended)
these sessions are not just about rebelling and going out to trash a wedding dress.
they are about being creative, having fun, and not worrying if your clothes get a little wet or dirty in the process.
whatever level of dirt you are comfortable with, have fun brides and grooms! you only live once.
in our experience, most of today’s modern brides don’t want to wear their mom’s old wedding dress, as beautiful as it may be. they want to be unique and wear something that shows their own style. i’m not nostradamus, but i don’t see this trend changing in the future. with this revelation in mind, we offer three suggestions for your wedding dress after you have said “i do” and placed it into wedding dress purgatory.
one, call us to do a super fun photo session. dirt and/or water are optional.
two, donate your dress to brides against breast cancer.
three, call us to do a super fun photo session, get your dress professionally cleaned, then donate it to brides against breast cancer :)
