It is tough for some brides (and moreso the bride’s parents!) to get their head around a trash the dress session. The misconception is that you have to destroy your dress or float in a lagoon. To move away from this stigma, many photographers have started calling their sessions a Day After Session or Rock the Frock or Encore Session. The main purpose of this portrait session is to get fun bridal portraits without the stress of the wedding day. A benefit to this is that you can wear your dress again (yay!) and not worry about it getting dirty, as well as do something different with hair, makeup and accessories that may not have fit with your wedding day style.
Here at Studio Laguna, we like to call our session a Reprise Session. It can be with just the bride or the couple, more fashion forward or more relaxed, with a theme or without, whatever the client would like.
On Sunday, I photographed Ashleigh’s Reprise Session. If you haven’t seen Ryan and Ash’s wedding yet, go to our weddings category and scroll down until you find them, it was AMAZING! Ash has a great sense of style, and wanted to up the glam factor while still keeping the rual feel. Luckily, I came across an amazing location while driving around a couple months ago, so we had a wild west set to work with. Ashleigh got her hair teased like it has never been teased before and threw on her cowboy boots. The shoot ended up with a 60’s western vogue feel, and I love the images! Check out the favorites =)
