It’s almost TTD time!

Monday, April 5th, 2010

As I was preparing my presentations for our Cross Canada NoBs Tour tomorrow I came across some old TTD sessions.  As I was going through the images checking them out again, I decided to grab a few more and add them to the show.  As the weather is warming up, the ice is leaving the lakes and the grass is turning greener, the TTD season is once again coming to life.  With our schedule nearly booked for this summer it is better to call ahead and get something in the books now than wait a month before you want to do it.  I am looking forward to implementing some new looks and products to our 2010 TTD sessions.

Here are some more images from Melissa’s Trash The Dress Session we did.  As I stated in the previous post we did have some difficulty locating water for her to get her dress wet.  What I did not mention was tha we did find some pretty cool spots while we were roaming around God’s

Yes, the dress does get wet.

Last night we had Melissa’s Trash The Dress Session.  You might remember Melissa from my previous blog post where I presented some of her gorgeous wedding images (see here).  We decided to head out to the St. Charles area to see if we could find some different locations to shoot and come up with a few creative images.  All was well as we had fields of of flower,s old shacks, fields with bails of hey, you name it, we found it.  Except for water.  Yes, there were lots of lakes and such, but none had that easy access to a beach or to a weed free area.  Alas, after the evening was winding down we bit down on the steeringwheel and headed to Alban where we knew ther was a small beach.  The 14.27 minute drive proved to be worth it as somone graciously placed a small dock in the water just for us to use for our TTD session.  They also conveniently placed an unsed (but new) sauna for Mel to change back into dry clothes when we were finished   Thanks again Mel for letting us document another chapter in your beautiful life.

Well, in this case, the flowers.  This is the last image of our TTD session in Jamaica.  I have had this idea since last year, the day after our last trash the dress session.  Fortunately, the water in Jamaica is alot warmer than it is here, so I finally was able implement my idea.

Trash The Dress

Friday, October 24th, 2008


Trash The Dress (or TTD) Definition:  Refers to photography that contrasts elegant clothing with an environment in which it is completely out of place. It is generally shot in the style of glossy beauty and glamor photography. It may also be done as an additional shoot after the wedding, almost as a declaration that the wedding is done and the dress will not be used again. It is seen as an alternative to storing the dress away, never to be seen again.

Like our wedding photography we are always pushing the limits with our TTD sessions.  Don’t settle for the “snapshot” photographer, you want your images to POP and you want your family and friends to go “WOW!”.


We like to use odd angles, funky lighting,  and creative post processing to make your images stand above the rest.  If you can think  of it, we can create it.   We want your session to be unique to you, so whatever you can think up?  We can do.

Trash the dress sessions are not limited to just brides either, if you have  a prom dress,
semi-formal dress or any dress that you just want to trash, give us a call.   We are game for anything.

Please Note: The dresses only get as dirty as you want them to be.  The above images were shot on location in a slag pit, river, lake, and in the bush and the dress only suffered a minor stain which came out with…..water. 🙂  Unfortunately the cricket we stepped on during the shoot did not survive.

A non-refundable retainer is required to hold any dates.
