Trash the Dress / Suit at the Grotto
I love the idea of Trash the Dress (using your wedding dress in ways you might not have dared prior to The Big Day). Read more about it here.
Carolina Castillo had arranged a male model / groom to be with her for a Trash the Dress AND Suit style photo session. I really wanted to do this and was looking forward to it. And then on the morning of the shoot, we found out that the male model had to cancel. So we quickly began the search for another model to step in and help out.
With no male models available at such short notice, I asked a co-worker, Tyler Willey, if he'd be willing to wear a suit and get wet and ... hold a pretty girl in his arms doing it. I don't think it took even a split second for him to think about it. He said yes. And off we went. Less than an hour later he met Carolina for the first time. And less than an hour after that, we were shooting the following pictures.
I had a lot of fun and they say they did too. Check out the pictures and let me know what you think.
As an interesting side-note: Tyler and Carolina later got engaged (the proposal) and married.
