Some time ago I posted a note about the idea of "Trashing the Dress" on my blog. Heidi immediately volunteered and it wasn't until last night that I finally got a chance to take her up on it.
I belong to a photography club here in Utah called Photowalking Utah. They had scheduled a Photowalk for the Great Salt Lake for June and I asked Heidi if she would be interested in modeling in front of some 20+ photographers instead of just me. To my surprise, even the thought of 20+ photographers didn't seem to scare her. She went for it. We all showed up and had a great time (in spite of the loss of a couple of cell phones and a flash).
NOTE: Trash the Dress is an idea going around the internet. It's not so much about trashing (ruining) the dress, as it is about USING the dress in ways you wouldn't dream of using it before "the big day". Having spent a fortune on a wedding dress, why use it just once? Why not get some stunning pictures out of it by going places you never would have gone, by doing things you never would have done, while wearing that lovely dress?
Here are some of the images that I captured:
