Trash the Dress

Friday, December 18, 2009

I am so lucky to be a part of such a cool group! So Cal shootout is a group of photogs that get together and dream up amazing concepts and shoot! The models always rock and I've been so pumped to be the lead artist on a handful of these shoots! This shoot concept was "Trash the Dress". For those who don't know what this is, it's a super fab way to showcase your gown after the big day! You don't always need to "trash" your dress but at this shoot we trashed em!!!!!! It was so fun! Here are some shot from the day!
