Trash the dress

Trash the Dress shoot with our wedding photographers

Wedding is when feelings turn somersaults. Who wouldn’t sign that? Nevertheless, marriage is something very individual. For some, it is the most beautiful day in their lives that ceremoniously opens the path of their lives together. With a sacred ceremony followed by a wedding celebration in a stylish ambience. For the others the wedding is also pure fairyland feeling, but also a welcome occasion to ring in the future together with particularly crazy and unusual things.

Trash the dress sessions are the absolute hit and they offer you the ideal possibility to put on the wedding dress again and to make a sensational shooting according to your wishes. Most of the time your wedding dress hangs in the box and was cleaned after the wedding. It is kept in the box, because – even if you got remarried you wouldn’t do it in the same dress. So honestly, what does this dress get you in the wardrobe?
One of the extraordinary wedding ideas is the “Trash the Dress photo shooting”, where crazy “Trash the Dress” pictures are taken in rather unusual places. But what exactly happens at this so-called “After-Wedding-Shooting? Does this trend photography really have such a “destructive” effect on the chic wedding dress as the term wants us to believe? First of all: the Trash the Dress-Shooting can be very spectacular and stands for an unconventional way to stage the wedding memory in a completely different way.

WHERE DOES THE TERM “TRASH THE DRESS” COME FROM?

No dress holds as many secrets as the wedding dress. Actually, it’s too bad that the most important dress in a woman’s life can only radiate her fascination for one day. Exactly at this point the idea docks to arrange the wedding photography times completely differently. Namely with lots of action and boundless imagination. John Michael Cooper, an American wedding photographer, was tired of always taking pictures of the same poses and boring constellations. His idea to photograph the wedding couple in the most unexpected and bizarre environment hit exactly the nerve of those involved.

WHEN DOES ONE DO SUCH A SHOOTING?

A trash the dress shooting always takes place after the wedding. And the wedding dress and the groom’s suit aren’t really destroyed. A little battered, maybe.
A professional vigasist will conjure up a suitable make-up for you. One that suits your chosen location. And it should be exactly the opposite of a quiet pond or a green meadow with ducks. Trash the dress is different. weird, creepy, freaky. Maybe even more authentic?

WHERE DO YOU DO A TRASH THE DRESS SHOOT?

For a trash-the-dress photo shoot the location can’t be unusual enough. The season and the local events certainly play an important role. But even these can be redesigned with a lot of creativity so that it fits. Why not repeat the hot wedding kiss on an ugly scrap yard between a gutted car body and a scrap press? Or continue the wedding dance on a muddy building plot? A dirty, old warehouse with collecting machines is just as bizarre as a photo shoot on a dung heap or in a totally crowded subway station. Everyone can individually expand the range of crazy ideas. The wedding clothes do not necessarily have to be totally separated.

WHY DO YOU DO A TRASH THE DRESS SHOOT?

The crazy Trash the Dress photo shooting should not replace the normal wedding photos. The claim is: a high-contrast counterpart of conventional wedding pictures. And these should come across as exuberant, cheeky, frivolous and wacky. Even after twenty or thirty years of marriage.

HOW DOES A TRASH-THE-DRESS SHOOTING WORK?

Our Trash-the-dress sessions basically start harmlessly. We will do this session with you after the wedding if you have decided to destroy your dress and suit instead of leaving it in the box. You will receive a professional make-up from our make-up artist. The day, the locations and the posings are discussed in advance and the pace is up to you. We start very slowly, until you have forgotten the camera and which things you want to do you decide yourself.

You can also book a trash-the-dress shooting at any time, the prices are available online. We recommend to do the trash-the-dress shooting either in spring or late summer.

During the trash-the-dress session we will pass the different “stations” and we will make sure that the fun is not neglected, that we guarantee you!
