There’s nothing like getting together with a bunch of great folks in your industry and having a great time when you love what you do.  A couple of weeks ago, something like 20 or 30 other photographers and I traveled across the water in the wee hours of the morning to meet up at historic Fort Worden to shoot until we dropped. I dragged some of my clients with me, Arica and Eddie, (okay, maybe not DRAGGED… maybe they wanted to go!) and we all romped around the fields, rocks, barracks, bunkers, and beaches and had a grand old time before passing out in one of the 100-year-old Officer’s houses that you can rent on the park grounds.

If you’re not familiar with the one of the latest trends in wedding photography, it’s to have your own fashion session a day or a week or a month or a year after your wedding.

In the industry, we’ve taken to calling them “Trash The Dress” sessions although our aim is not to trash your gorgeous couture wedding gown that you saved your weekly allowance for since you were 8 years old, but to go somewhere and make some really fun fashion inspired images that you normally wouldn’t be able to make on your wedding day because of time or location constraints. (and your dress will survive, unless you decide to go for a swim in a swamp!)

If you’d like to book a session like this of your own (whether you’re up for wearing your wedding attire or just pulling some fun duds out of your closet!) contact me so we can schedule something for you- summer is tight (as it’s prime wedding season!) so dates are limited!!!

Special thanks to Steve Smith for heading up this whole event-we all had THE greatest time and can’t wait for you to plan the next hoedown!  Wink wink!!
