trash the dress

Remember when I told you that I had won a "trash the dress" session with the photographer who did my engagement photos? Well, I finally have the photos to show you and I am so excited!

We took these the first Saturday morning in November. It was cold. Like 19-degrees-and-windy cold. (Kind of the opposite of my wedding...)

And since I had eaten my life away on my honeymoon, I was so afraid the dress wouldn't fit. The Hubs did have to work the zipper a bit. But it all worked out and they turned out pretty well, I think. Raye is such a talented photographer. I highly recommend her if you are having a wedding in the Maryland area.

I had a navy cardigan but Raye made me take it off. The photos with it on were not nearly as good. Instead of wearing my turquoise heels that I had worn for the wedding, I wore my riding boots that I have had for years. I am glad that I was given the opportunity to take some pictures in my wedding dress closer to home. Thanks Raye!

Would you do a trash the dress session? Or have you already done one?
