I shot Julie & Mark’s “Mr. & Mrs.” session in Beverly Hills a few weeks ago, and it was really a blast! Julie looked stunning in her Alvina Valenta dress and Mark looked smashing in his suit! Very 90210 chic! I could tell they were happy to get back into their wedding attire and get to re-live the moment one last time. And Julie even got to make use of this fun little headpiece she bought from Etsy but never got around to wearing on the wedding day!
That’s why “Day After” ( be it Trash-The-Dress or Mr. & Mrs) sessions are so fun! You get the opportunity to let loose in your fancy wedding clothes– this time without a strict time-line or worrying about dirtying up your dress. You can also try out some fun accessories that you didn’t get to wear on your big day! I get asked to distinguish what the difference is between Trash-The-Dress and Mr. & Mrs… They are both very similar style shoots, so here’s how I approach the two: Trash The Dress can be done with just the bride, or with bride and groom, but the implication is that you are really going to be fearless when it comes to getting your dress dirty. There are different ways to dirty up the dress– in the ocean, in a grungy urban area, in the forest, or hoping in a fountain! The options are endless and make for truly edgy pictures! A Mr. & Mrs. session is more a couples shoot for the bride & groom– the point being to get a few more extra fun & romantic pictures in your wedding attire. Sure the dress might get a bit dirty, but you aren’t going for the “let’s soak it or roll around in the mud” vibe. 🙂
Now that I’ve cleared that up, let’s look at the Mr. & Mrs!
