Our model for this event will be Maud (http://purpleport.com/portfolio/maude/?referrer=ianbutty). Maud was recently at the studio for our bedroom glamour night and our Friday 13th Event. She was an instant hit with the photographers and I think without exception we were all keen to shoot with her again.
The dress that Maud will be wearing for this shoot will be her actual, real life wedding dress! And we intend to completely trash it by the end of the shoot. As Maud says: “a celebration in mud of a great divorce hahaha“
Never done a “trash the dress” shoot before? And not sure what to expect? You might want to take a look at these two galleries on my website:
I have found two places for us to shoot at. The first location will be on the beach and esplanade near Lower Lighthouse. At this location we will create some classic wedding style images – these will be our ‘before’ shots.
After that we will head over to our main location which are the famous Fleetwood Wrecks. These are on the muddy salt marshes about a mile out of town. The marshes are muddy and there is a bit of a scramble to get to the wrecks. Please wear sensible footwear with good grip we will be walking over uneven, muddy ground. I recommend that you should wear old clothes and possibly bring a change of clothing with you too. For some of the set-ups to get the best shots you may want to go down into the muddy areas where Maud is trashing her dress.
