These post-wedding photo shoots are not new. Brides (and some grooms) are using these sessions as not only an opportunity to wear the dress again, but expressing their creativity and have some fun.
Everything from paintball, mudslinging, shredding, food fighting, dumpster diving, swimming, to setting it ablaze. The point of these shoots is for the bride to have a blast while capturing another wedding-related memory, one that is even more unique to her personality. Regardless of the method, safety should ALWAYS be at the forefront. While aiming for the perfectly, unmatched image, all involved should take precautions to make sure that tragedies like a recent drowning death do not occur by putting themselves at risk unnecessarily.
I applaud the brides that endure to make their wedding events exactly what they want them to be. As Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “Rules are not necessarily sacred, principles are.”
What do you think of these photo shoots? Passing trend or here to stay?
