Trash The Dress! by Atlanta Wedding Photographer

Hello everyone!  There has been a growing trend among the younger brides for "trash the dress" photo shots.  This involves after the wedding you go out and pick a location to trash your wedding dress.  I just got an opportunity to do one.

I think they are great ideas.  They give the bride a chance to wear the wedding dress again and have a photo shot where they are not rushed by the wedding day.  They get to have fun and not be so worried about being so prime and proper.  This way the are just a girl having fun!

This bride was so wonderful.   We decided to do some fun photos before we went and trashed the dress in the lake.  She wore some sassy cowboy boots.  We did a few shots on some railroad tracks, a covered bridge and some by the lake.  We then moved on to the lake location.

We had a blast!! She was full of energy and gave some wonderful playful poses.  As you can see from the photo the main objective was to have fun!  Which is what all photo shots should be.  I want to thank the bride for giving me the chance to photograph such a unique opportunity.

The Knife Dance at Persian Weddings

I have had the honor of shooting a couple of Persian weddings this year.  Let me tell you they are a blast!!! It is refreshing to see new and wonderful customs at weddings.  As you know I always say to each bride and groom is to make it your wedding!  If you have not seen the knife dance it is a real treat.  The brides maids and other women start to dance a typical Persian dance with the cake knife and basically asking the couple money for the cake knife.  Once the dancer gets the money, the knife is passed on to the next person and they dance for the couple.  The bride and groom continue to offer money to try and get the cake knife.  After a few dancers the couple is finally given the knife and they are able to cut the cake with the knife.  It is great fun and enjoyed by all!

It is so cool to see all the different cultures and traditions.  As a Atlanta wedding photographer I am honored witness all the diverse weddings and photograph their special occasions.
