Rori + Jeremy = TTD Mme Shutterfly {MCP} | TTD [aka Trash the Dress/ post Wedding Photo Shoot

February 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
Although the term TTD is becoming more commonly used among Photographers, still many stop and have to ask “what is a ‘Trash the Dress’ Shoot, & what’s is all about?” Here’s a breakdown: Trash the dress, also known as fearless bridal or rock the frock, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is out of place. It is generally shot in the style of fashion and glamour photography. "Trash the dress" is [but not always] the art of destruction or deconstruction of a brides wedding dress to create a new "artwork" that the bride would be proud to display on their wall. It may be done as an additional shoot after the wedding, almost as a declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will not be used again. It is seen as an alternative to storing the dress away. The point of the session is supposed to be symbolic. This is the bride saying, "I'm in this marriage for life...therefore, i'll never need this dress again so it really doesn't matter if i wreck it."

And that’s just what we did… The 3 of us set out one FREEZING fall morning, along with the children as spectator/moral support [that’s right, this HOT mama just gave birth months before this shoot—WOWZA HOTNESS!!].

Rori, a SUPER MAMA, & Jeremy the supportive hubby, didn’t even hesitate to jump right in as though it were a balmy 30 degrees celcius. Teeth a chattering and nose a runnin’ I started quickly snapping away…


Our Post-Wedding session was quick and productive. The Bride & Groom did exceptionally well and even though they were frozen solid by the end, the 2 very much in love, let on like it was just another day in paradise!






































Thanks so much Jeremy & Rori, can’t wait for our next shoot together!!
