A Vibrant Trash the Dress Shoot in the Snow!

Written by , Posted in Be Inspired, Trash the Dress



We don’t get to see a whole lot of trash the dress shoots on Bespoke Bride which is a crime especially if they are all as totally awesome as this one shot by Jon and Joan of BellowBluePhotography. And it all just so happened to be shot in the middle of a super crazy snow storm. This is one not to be missed!


“We had the honor of meeting Jeremey and Melissa just two years ago when they contacted us about photographing their unique wedding. We connected with them immediately because they both shared our passion for unique and creative photography. Their engagement session that we did was tea time on a bridge, their wedding was circus themed, and for their day after session they threw, blew, and sprayed each other with paint.




The bride Melissa wanted to do something different with her dress and her husband Jeremey decided to use dye and powder paint to artistically trash her dress. Their first session had to be canceled because Melissa’s mother was going in for a follow up after being treated for breast cancer. Being the awesome daughter that Melissa is, she wanted to be there with her mother for whatever news the doctors had. Her mother is now cancer free and on a whim the couple rescheduled for a cold December day. The day was not an ideal day for photographing outside. It was freezing and a snow storm hit just as we started photographing the couple. In a mater of an hour there was 4 inches of snow covering the ground. We thought all was lost, but this unpredictable weather situation was the best photo opportunity ever. The color of the paint was so vibrant and pops with the bright whiteness of the snow.”
