Trash The Dress

After the I-Dos and pledges of Till Death
Do us Part, after the reception and honeymoon and settling into wedded
bliss comes a new tradition.

A phenomenon know as Trash the Dress or Wear the Dress Your Way has arrived. Whether you had Carlson's photograph your wedding or not you are invited to do
it again in a totally light-hearted, whimsical manner. You may not even want to get your dress dirty, but you will surely want to capture it a new exciting way. That's the beauty of this session, you tailor it to suit YOU!

This new Trash the Dress sessions are growing rapidly in popularity around the country. Its a new twist featuring an honored symbol of the big day and giving a second life to your wedding dress. It's also the perfect way to add another chapter to your wedding library exposing the fun, playful side of your personality.

Why do it again? The reasons for the session are as individual and varied as the brides and dresses themselves. Some do it because it was pouring on their big day
and they want images that capture brighter skies some want it captured in a totally different season be it Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter.
For others they just want to be relaxed and carefree to do whatever! The results are always the same - FUN and FABULOUS!

It all came about because one day a free-spirited bride decided that she wanted to really cut loose in her wedding dress. She wanted to capture and display it's beauty in natural surroundings. Not limited to worries of dirt and water, which were not acceptable on her wedding day, she slipped it on once more to experience the magic of the dress in unexpected ways. No restrictions, no limitations, no hesitation, pure expression! The images, true LOVE!

Think what you like to do for fun. What's your passion? Swimming, hiking, 4-wheeling, motorcycling, fishing, boating, skiing, hunting, jogging, biking, walking down a country road, shopping.

What are the spots that mean the most to you? A farm, the woods, the meadow, your front porch, waterfalls, park, garden, an
old railroad station, an historic building. a cabin, cottage, city streets or your own hometown.

Now, grab your dress, use your imagination and call Carlson's to discuss your Trash the Dress or Wear the Dress Your Way session today and get ready for another experience you will never forget!
