TRASH THE DRESS | Paul and Kristen in Aruba

What the heck is a Trash The Dress Session?

Since we have been getting more and more interest regarding trashing the dress, we thought we’d share a fun session we did in Aruba a few years ago {2011}. Kristen {the Bride} was completely in love with the trash the dress idea but wasn’t sure if she could or should “actually” trash it. What if she wanted to look at it again? Or try it on? Or use it to make another outfit? It wasn’t until the night of her wedding, after the reception that she knew she wanted to do the session. “After all, I am never going to wear the dress again. So I decided to take a few more photos wearing it. So glad we did!” said the Kristen. We are glad she did too!

We met the couple in the parking lot of the Radisson where the wedding was held and they drove us to the other side of the island for their session. What a difference compared to the well manicured hotel resort side of the island. We had so much fun!
