    What is dress trashing?? I am an American living in Okinawa so I am unaware of the trends in the states.

    It's a new bridal portrait trend. Pictures are typically taken a couple weeks after the wedding and in many cases, the dress is cleaner than it was after the reception. It's not about destructing the dress as it may sound but rather getting on the ground, in the water, or something without worrying about how the dress is going to look afterwards.

    I can't wait to find a bride to do a session with me.

    Here's a husband/wife photography team's blog entry on a trash the dress session they did in an underground water cave: http://www.flashflavor.com/?p=14 It's pretty extreme, I don't imagine every one is as far-out as this. Added bonus, it's a pretty cool lighting tutorial in itself.

    Here's a video documentary of how they did it:

    There was someone else on this forum who did sort of a trash the dress type of photoshoot and he said that his models had just bought their dresses for about $20 each.
    If you can't find a bride who is ready to do it, you could find a model and do it with a thrift store dress and then have examples to show.

    That looks like fun! I normally can't stand weddings in general, but this looks like it has potential for some really great photos.
