Trash the Dress portraits on the beach in Southwest Michigan

This past week I was invited by Monika Caban, another local photographer, to take part in a series of trash the dress photo shoots on the beach here in Southwest Michigan. The shoots featured beautiful locations in Southwest Michigan along with severalTrash the dress, wedding portrait, sunset, beach, wedding, bride, michigan, saint joseph, groomcouples looking for amazing pictures. The great thing about trash the dress portraits is that anyone can do them, you can be recently married or married for many years, all it takes is a desire to capture some incredible images of the two of you together.

While “Trashing the Dress” may sound a bit harsh to some couples you needn’t fear, you can be as adventurous or unadventurous as you’d like and in fact many couples choose not to trash their wedding dress but go for more artistic images instead. Some couples choose to do the shoot to commemorate an anniversary while others do it to make up for a missed opportunity on their wedding day. Regardless of the reason every couple loves having the opportunity to capture beautiful images of themselves

    Rev. Carleen - Looking at the shoreline photos in this bitter cold now has me even more pumped up for some gorgeous beachfront ceremonies this year. I love being able to live so close to Lake Michigan and other beaches, and I do many lakeside weddings. Your pics are lovely.
