You can call it a Trash the Dress shoot, a day-after shoot or a Rock the Frock shoot… it’s all the same in the end… you get back into your beautiful wedding gear and have some fun! This type of shoot is so much more relaxed than the couple shoot on your wedding day because there’s no time constraint and you don’t have hundreds of guests waiting for you to finish.
Brigid contacted me via email a few months ago to book the shoot. They got married in Cape Town 8 months ago, but really wanted some photos of themselves in their wedding outfits with their dogs, who couldn’t make the trip down to the coast.
My word, I had a blast yesterday!! The shoot was actually supposed to happen on Saturday, but after the heavy rain in the morning we decided to postpone… and yesterday’s weather was pure gold! I’m so thrilled that our original plan of a park with the dogs was canned too, because I had a blast in Jozi-town for the second part of their shoot! We decided instead going to a park, that it would be best to do take their photos with their dogs at their home, so that the dogs weren’t too excitable in the park and go running off. Then we hit the road, and headed for Wits and Newtown for the rest of their shoot (their wedding photos were done outside in gardens and with loads of natural backgrounds, so a more urban feel for this shoot was ideal)
Of course I was in my element! I love taking photos in the city!
It was a stormy night when Kuben and Shaday got married a few weeks ago, and the speeches started just after the ceremony so there was no daylight at all for photos.
So I met up with them yesterday afternoon at Randpark Golf Club to take a few photos… the ones that should have been done on the day of their wedding. The only difference is that they were more relaxed for this shoot (considering they didn’t have a hall full of guests waiting for them)… and her hair was slightly different
Saaleha and Naeem got married 4 years ago, and didn’t really have couple photos taken on their wedding day. Saaleha contacted me a few months ago to book a Trash the Dress photoshoot in the city (also known as a Day After shoot, or Rock the Frock because you don’t really “trash” the dress, although in their case it’s now jolly dirty). So, we met up in the Joburg CBD this afternoon for a fun shoot with a wedding dress and a suit jacket and a paper bouquet that Saaleha made specially for the occasion.
I just LOVED the bouquet!! So clever! And also loved the colour she chose… it just looked amazing against the old sandstone buildings.
We met in my new favourite spot in Johannesburg, and after walking around the beautiful old buildings, we then drove to the old station to finish the photoshoot.
I’ve just finished editing the group Trash the Dress from last month…yes… yes… I know it’s late and way after the deadline… but anyhoo… this is why I think I’m going to have to slow down with photoshoots in 2012.
Anyhoo, when I made some of the photos Black and White, I just knew I had to post a few more! I LOVE the way they’ve turned out…
I met Tanya and Peter yesterday afternoon at her stables in Kyalami yesterday to do the final shoot planned for their wedding. It was a Day-After or Trash the Dress shoot and Peter and Tanya got dressed up for the occasion again. Tanya was so very excited about this shoot with her favourite pony Twister. She’s been talking about it for months
It was such an amazing setting in the fields, with Twister being followed by all the other horses… and OMW I was so impressed with her… she was amazing and so calm all the time, even though Tanya was making quite a lot of russling noises in her dress
