this was probably one of the most rewarding series of shoots i’ve ever done. cheryl was the perfect girl for this. When she emailed me about doing the shoot it said something like, “I want to do a Trash the Dress shoot, but let’s DO this.”
the bonus was that it took place on three shoots over 5 weeks and i was fortunate enough to have Brian Larter and Tanya Shields on one or two of the shoots…just for fun.
when we finally got to the burning portion Brian knew the place and the how. acutely aware of his penchant for fire eaters and mad photography, we insisted he come for the final shoot. how could he not.
cheryl’s been cold, wet, waist deep in duck stuff, her husband threw mud at her, people pointed and gasped at her and tonight we set her on fire…but we saved a little piece of dress for her mom.
i’m going to do a slideshow of a slew of the entire series in the next few weeks…but until then, here’s 2 from tonight.
cheryl, you rock.
