A portrait session I arranged of a group of recent brides bravely jumping into the ocean for a “trash the dress” photo was featured in today’s Gloucester Daily Times! Here’s the link to the newspaper’s online story about the event: ‘Trashing the Dress’
Here’s the press release I sent to the newspaper:
Gloucester, MA, September 20, 2009 — As many as 8 recently married women will don their wedding gowns once again for a “trash the dress” group portrait session with Kevin Jacobus Photography Sunday, Sept. 20 on Half Moon Beach at Stage Fort Park. The trend of bridal portraits with a dramatic twist is gaining popularity as brides seek portraits with the fun and excitement of reliving a part of their wedding day without worrying about getting their dress dirty.
Brides will be photographed by the NH-based wedding and portrait photographer in a variety of themed sessions concluding with 8 women jumping into the ocean in their wedding gowns for a dramatic and unusual photograph.
Half Moon Beach was chosen as a location for its combination of sandy beach and rocky outcroppings that provide a beautiful backdrop for a set of photographs that will emcompass fun and fashion.
