Trash the Dress

Trash the Dress Photography

A Trash the Dress session breathes new life into a wedding dress that only gets worn for a short moment in your whole life, and then gets packed away in a garment bag forever. You will get to put it on again (yay!) and have a blast creating new memories in a fun and sexy photography session. Here in the Riviera Maya, you will most often find yourselves playing in the ocean waves and rolling around in the sand of our stunning Caribbean beaches.

What to Expect

Plan to get wet, or dirty, or both! Our trash the dress sessions do not include under water photography, and are most commonly shot on the beach, or in the jungle. But how about eating a messy taco on the vibrant streets of Mexico? We welcome your wild and crazy ideas!

Time of Day

The best time of day to schedule your trash the dress session on the beach is a few hours before sunset, because the light is buttery and the heat starts to subside. If you prefer to focus on the jungle, then keep in mind that the mosquitoes get hungry close to sunset.

A dress made from synthetic fibers should not be ruined by getting wet. The ocean may leave it cleaner than it was after your reception! But, natural fibers can shrink and lace or beading can get damaged. If this concerns you, plan to wear something other than your wedding dress.

Our Trash the Dress Photography

I highly recommend using Fun In The Sun Weddings Photography for a wedding in Mexico! We had such a blast with Marc the photographer, we felt really comfortable around him, he made the day really fun and stress free. My wedding party was laughing throughout the day and telling me how funny and great he was. And you need to laugh a little when it's 90 degrees with 100% humidity!! Not to mention we love love love our pictures - they came out so beautiful. He's very talented and did a great job capturing the gorgeous and vibrant background of Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our wedding day. As far as contacting and emailing the company, Gillian (who is Marc's wife) is very sweet, professional and responds to you very quickly. I received all my pictures about a month after my wedding, I thought that was a very fast turn around time. My husband and I are very pleased with our choice and would suggest this company to anyone having a destination wedding anywhere in Riviera Maya, Mexico!!
