Trash the Dress  / Rock the Frock

Where did this idea come from?

Trash the Dress was invented in the US by photographer  John Michael Cooper. He’s been quoted as saying, “I just wanted to create some cool images. The aim was to apply ideas from fashion and cinema to wedding photography by putting brides in unusual locations.



Symbolism of Trash the Dress

It could be said that Trash the Dress was for brides to prove to their new husbands that they were done with the dress, they’d married for life and wouldn’t need it again  so they trash it as a symbol of their everlasting love. Or it could be the story that many brides wanted to get creative  photography and wear their wedding dress just one more time and have some fun

Trash the Dress isn’t only for wedding dresses it could be of prom dresses and ball gowns

Will my dress get ruined

That’s is entirely up to you the bride .. and to be discussed ..Its a photographers dream if you do J But the majority of shoots quite kind to the wedding dress, and take place in interesting and unusual environments like urban landscapes and in beautiful countryside but without causing permanent damage to the dress.
