Elsie & James: Trash the Dress

Elsie and James were married in New York on February 1st, but decided they wanted some warm wedding photos so we met over the weekend for a trash the dress session. With this miserable winter I was worried, but we planned it perfectly. There were lunch time showers, but the afternoon was just beautiful; and with the wind blowing from the north,the south shore was pretty protected. We spent two hours shooting, so there are lots of images, but here are a few of my favourites. Thank you both for a wonderful afternoon - you are just adorable. I am sure you will have an amazing life together...

I suggested they bring along a few props to the shoot. Anything that is meaningful, to mix it up a bit and to add an element of humour to some of the photos. They came with quite the bag of goodies - the first character to appear was Buzz Lightyear - apparently there are those who think James bears a resemblance.

Both Elsie and James were born in the year of the Monkey, so they have this connection and a special place in their hearts for the adorable creature. This fluffy version just made me smile - and them too...

These are Chinese fortune knots. It is tradition to make them for special ocassions; these were made by their mothers as wedding gifts to grant them health and prosperity.

From the beach we headed to Southlands. The incredible jungle of banyon trees and palmetto plants is just beautiful. And the soft afternoon light gently filtered through casting a lovely warm glow over Elsie and James.
