Annie + Blair : : Trash the Dress

Yesterday, Aletha of Pearls Events, Jen of JK Photography and myself held our first marathon Trash the Dress session up at the Silver Lake Dunes. We had the cabin stocked full of fresh fruit, mimosas, and our hair and makeup crew of Erin and Anna (thanks again girls!) making everything perfect. The day wasn't as warm as we were anticipating but we rocked out an amazing session regardless of the cooler temps.

After the fun and success of this session, I'm sure we will be planning another next summer so if any of you have ever been contemplating doing a session like this, I assure you that you won't regret it. And as I always say...our goal isn't to 'trash' the wedding dress. The sand and water comes right out after a trip to the dry cleaner.

Annie and Blair were my first couple of the day and they were SO much fun to work with. A newlywed couple of not even two months, they were totally in the moment and up for the spontanaity of the session. Annie looked amazing in her gown and I adored the flower in her hair. And Blair's seersucker trousers...fabulous!
