Brides often spend hundreds on their dream wedding dresses and carefully protect their valuable gown after their special day. But some brides choose to schedule post-wedding photo sessions where they intentionally trash their wedding dresses. Jonny Carroll of DTX Weddings has been doing "trash your dress" photography for 3 years and says, "You're doing poses you wouldn't normally do on your wedding day...After the wedding, you're not worried about getting the dress dirty." The bride gets more adventurous shots laying on the beach, in water, or even with splashes of paint, all while wearing her wedding dress. The unusual shoots can cost between $400 to $1000.
