I have been so very lucky to do a few Trash the Dress shoots this year. They are a favorite of mine because I just love pushing myself creatively and trying new things. I am also extremely blessed to work with people like Leanne and Derek and they are seriously some of the nicest people in the whole world! I have so much fun every time we get the chance to work together.
Leanne showed up with some awesome fashion accessories and the rest just fell together on the day of the shoot. We had planned a trip to Chilliwack Lake, but it was one of the few summer days that the clouds rolled in. We ended up at Cultus Lake because it was closer and we were loosing light faster than expected. On a whim, we also stopped at the graffiti walls in Abbotsford. Our original plans had completely changed in the end, but it was like it was meant to be. We couldn’t have asked for better skies and dramatic winds! Also, I rarely use off camera flash but packed my strobes just in case and boy oh boy was I happy. My girl Marissa and the groom, Derek, held them when I couldn’t and we made it work. Again, it just seemed meant to be! I am so happy with the results.
Leanne and Derek, thanks again for being AWESOME! I just love you guys.
