So please just take a second to scroll down and look at the photos that I'm featuring today. Is this trash the dress session awesome or WHAT?! I've never seen anything like it, and that, of course, is why I chose it. It looks like so much fun! And while I realize that it's December, I thought the timing was kind of perfect too, considering I'm on my way to the beach in Belize on Monday! I actually thought that photographer Kelley McGee of Studio Sequoia Photography did such a great job of describing how the trash the dress session went down, that I would just share her words with you today.
"Julie and Johnny are the nerdy, fun, quirky couple of the year. They had a rainbow wedding, a Benny and Joon inspired engagement session and now, they're rocking the trash-the-dress session in a way only they could do. When we showed up to do the shoot, something we were envisioning as glamourous and chic, we came upon Julie and Johnny and their friends having a crazy camp-out on a stretch of beach on the military side of San Onofre. Julie was drinking a beer in her personalized beer stein she ordered for her wedding, and Johnny was playing happily in his swim trunks with the dogs... not exactly what you would picture for a trash-the-dress, right? But Julie looked just as pretty as ever in her wedding dress."
"After talking the ideas over with the crew, we figured out a storyline that suits Julie and Johnny perfectly. The bride, bombarded with color and static, goes to wash off the nonsense around her in unknowingly turbulent waters. As she sinks into the ocean, her groom rushes to her side and rescues her from the madness. She is no longer a bride bombarded with the stressors of pre-marital life... she has been rescued by her price charming! The cast of this unusual TTD are the members of the bride and groom's bridal party and even include Julie's mom, who relived the role of mother-of-the-bride and helped dress her daughter just like on the day of her wedding. Totally unusual, totally unique to the couple... we hope you laugh a little, smile a lot and love the photos."
