Trash the Dress Video!

If you live in the midwest, you know how crappy it is right now :-) but that did allow for a great trash the dress shoot in the snow. This was my first trash the dress shoot and I'm very happy with how everything turned out. The pictures in the video and on the site were taken by my wife who usually helps me with video, but is going to be pursuing photography a lot more as we integrate it into the business.

This was definitely one of the hardest shoots I've ever done with the snow coming down and trying to walk through 2 feet already on the ground, but we made it. They were great to work with and up for anything.

Check it out!

Hey Matt....good work. I liked the Glidecam work. Tough to shoot with the snow coming down but it added to the video.

Thanks,
John

Matt,
I liked it. I'm sure they were happy. I would NOT have enjoyed shooting in that snow even if it does make for some pretty pictures. Was it windy out? I ask because working a stedicam in the wind sucks and if you did, you're a better man than I.

Ethan,
That was definitely a concern on mine too, but it turned out to not be too bad. The snow was bad enough, but I would have called it off if it was windy. I had a hard enough time keeping the lens clean as it was. I love and hate Iowa weather :-)
