I have to say, I love a good excuse to spend the day at the beach. I was in Sarah and David’s wedding last September and the day was just beautiful. But Sarah wanted to have a little fun taking pictures in her dress after the worry of keeping the dress perfect on wedding day was no longer a concern. So, we did a “Trash the Dress Session”, but we didn’t light her dress on fire or smear it with tar. Really, it’s nothing a little Tide won’t fix! So “trash” seems such a harsh word. Lots of photographers call it a “Day After Session”- just a fun, cleaner way, to get portraits of the bride and groom after the wedding day. I will admit Sarah’s dress got a little black around the bottom… so I think we could call this a “Day After/Trashing mash-up”. The truth is, I agonized for far too long about what to call this post and finally settled on Day After… It’s still up for debate though. :)
I was excited when Sarah wanted her session to take place at a carnival! So fun! And where is there a carnival? Ocean City Maryland, of course! We made a day of it, drove down to the beach, ate lots of delish food, and got to take some fun photos!
These are a must-have whenever I go to Ocean City…
I literally lost my balance while snapping this, which is why it’s so off-kilter, but I kind of like how it turned out!
A little friendly competition…
I don’t know what I love more- the Chuck Taylor’s or the sweet shades… But I do think the one of them smooching in front of the stuffed animal prize display, is my favorite. :)
They even braved the freezing water, (at least a little). :)
So much fun, thanks for spending a day at the beach with me, Sarah and David!
