Salton Sea - Trash The Dress!

yes, I said Trash The Dress! Last weekend I joined a group of about 34 photographers, 8 Brides, and 4 Grooms to network and shoot Brides who were willing to get their dresses a little dirty on location at the Salton Sea!
This was my first trip to the Salton Sea, and what an interesting place it was, so much history involved which I love. We visited the North Shore Yacht Club which was once a popular hotel resort in the 1960's among Hollywood Stars, and where all of the images below were photographed. Our group chose this location because we thought that the abandonment of structures surrounding the Salton Sea would provide some vintage artistic backdrops for our Brides.
A shout out to all the Brides and Grooms who did a fabulous job in front of the camera, and to Chris Austin who organized this super fun day! Thank You! Thank You!











If you are a Bride who is interested in a Day After Session/ Trash The Dress Session on location, please email me for details!
