Trashing THE Dress
One of the joys of blogging is meeting other bloggers in real life. And who knew that moving to some small, middle-Georgian town would allow me to meet another blogger.
Lindsay (formally of Laugh Along the Way and currently Lindsay Gray Photography) isn’t just another blogger; she’s my friend, fellow military wife, and an up-and-coming photographer.
Before the wedding, she and I talked about doing some “trash the dress” photos once I got back to Georgia. And wouldn’t you know it, last week we found out that the peach orchards here are in bloom with vibrant blossoms, but the catch is that they’re only in bloom for a few days.
Well, tickle us pink! Last Thursday afternoon we decided to head out to the orchard early the next morning. So on Friday morning—before the sun rose—I got dolled up in my wedding gown and we set out for a photo shoot.
Here’s what happens when a city girl trashes her dress in the middle of Peach country!
The light, scenery, and crisp Georgia air was absolutely perfect.
Sittin’ pretty on top of a hill 🙂
On our way to the peach orchard we noticed an old barn/house/workshop on the side of the road, so as we were driving back home we stopped to take some photos. The old Ford was so rustic and perfect for this country shoot. I LOVE these pictures!!
aww!!! What a great idea!! Woa you had a beautiful wedding dress!! Veryy pretty pictures!!
Awww you look gorgeous! Love the shots by the old car!!!
It was WAY too much fun to be legal. And seriously girl, you can rock a wedding dress!!! Can't wait till next time, we're totally taking out the bike!
You even look gorgeous in the mud! I love them all, but my favorites are the ones at the top in the fields 🙂
You look gorgeous & that seems like such a fun idea. Great pics!
Beautiful!!! The shots by the car are my favorite, I can't wait to see your next photo session!
All of those look so great! It looks like it was a ton of fun! I can't wait to see more!
Jess, you're absolutely gorgeous! Love the photos!
Can't wait to see more of them.
I might be interested in purchasing the dress after the trash the dress session. No cleaining required! This is a serious request and I hope you want to help me out with passing the message to the bride.
You look gorgeous! Love the pictures 🙂
They are beautiful! But they had to be since you were such a beautiful model!
