Photos and Story in Original Issue by Amanda Causey
After the wedding is over what do you do with the dress… Spend hundreds of dollars to have it professionally cleaned and preserved? Not anymore. A new photojournalism trend is giving brides another option for what to do with their dress after the big day is over. “Trash the Dress” has become a popular term in wedding photography. Photo sessions are typically staged days, months or even years after the initial wedding and showcase the Bride’s individuality. It involves a bride wearing her dress in unusual places which may result in a “trashed, ” or ruined dress.
