To me Trash The Dress is the reprise of wedding photography. Why only wear that beautiful dress just once?
Being a fine art photographer I always want to do things different, and after stumbling upon the American Trash The Dress concept online, I asked 99 brides to pose for me in 2009. (09.09.09)
Together with my husband Hans I created the first mass Trash The Dress event ever, and made the news worldwide.
We first did a try out with 8 brides 08.08.08 using 'boring' dates differently. 10.10.10 we did another Dutch event in the old fort of Geertruidenberg. The 11.11.11 event took place in Breda, @ Ijsvermaak.
Receiving invitations from all over the world to do more Trash The Dress photography, I went Down Under February 2011. August 14 I was one of the photographers of the first annual 'Running of the Brides' event at Niagara Falls, Canada, supporting breast cancer research.
12.12.12 is the last special date. Hopefully we can do a multiple Trash The Dress event on more than one continent. We are now looking for models, (you don't have to wear your own gown, you can also buy a secondhand weddingdress and participate) muas, hairdressers and wedding/event planners to co-ordinate this all.
A major sponsor for these events is very welcome too,
