I photographed Jamie and Brian’s Dana Point wedding a few months ago at Cannons Restaurant. Jamie is a fellow lover of photography, so she dragged out her wedding gown (and some killer boots) for just one more photo op. This was one of the most fun portrait sessions I’ve ever photographed. It’s refreshing to be free from the time constraints of the wedding day, and to not care if your gown gets dirty or wet. I know this might crush some peoples’ dreams right now, but trust me- your daughter will NEVER want to wear your gown on her wedding day! I wouldn’t be caught dead in my mom’s long sleeved, 70’s style, lace wedding gown (not to mention the huge, floppy, matching hat). I’ve been to almost 700 weddings and seen only 1 bride in her mom’s gown. So don’t be scared ladies, unpack your gown from that big box in the garage and call me to schedule your trash the dress portrait session today!

JAM YOU LOOK AMAZING!!!! SO CUTE!!!
I have never seen this done before!! I think this is so cool!! Jamie I love these pictures of you and Brian, especially the water one : )
Soooo cute! I love the 2nd picture!
WOW!! I never heard of “trash the dress” photos, but I can see why they should be a must for every bride. I love the relax look of the photos. My favorite is the second picture wear Jamie is showing off her “killer” boots.
Great pictures!! I love that the pictures are at different spots, not just one location!
I love the concept, trash the dress, and Jaime you look so pretty and very cool and the same time in that picture of you in the boots and dress.
Great pictures – when I found out she was going to do this I was stunned….never heard of this before. However, after having my own dress packed and reserved by the cleaners and then moving it around wherever I wound up, I finally donated it!!!! So kudos to Jamie and Brian for doing what they wanted and Carly is so correct — nobody wants to wear the old dress on their day!!!! I’m so happy for them!
I was wrong.
All the pictures are beautiful, but I love the second one with the boots..
Love Love-They are great
These turned out PERFECT!! My fave is the one with the boots. You look adorable!! And…Brian looks like he’s having an amazing time pulling you into the water ;)
Jamie and Brian – gorgeous as always. Kudos on the pictures!
Great pics Jamie! Looks like you guys had fun taking these pics! Love the one with the boots!
Jamie, When you told me about “trash the dress”, I was shocked. I never heard of such a thing. I thought, OH NO!! Not that gorgeous dress… But then I thought about my beautiful dress from 1953, which cost $55.00, rotting in my closet… I guess I should have a “throw the dress in the trash can” day. All the pictures were great, but I liked the last one best.
Love the pictures. 3rd one is my favorite, but your dress was sooooooo beautiful!
The one with the boots is really cute too.
Trash The Dress is great. Number 1 picture
Love these pictures jamie! Your dress is so pretty, the concept of “trash the dress” seemed a little wrong but now that I see the awesome pictures that come from it I love it. I love the one of you sitting in the dirt with the boots! :)
I can only think of one word. HOT!
Jamie, your pictures are amazing.
Great photos the boot one is my favorite!
Do I see a Bobcat in those bushes??? These are great! If I could still fit into my wedding dress I’d sign up for a session in a heartbeat :-) Love ya!
