Miles, You mentioned websites which make your photos look better and Janey asked for something that worked in real life. This doesn’t work for long but hopefully you think some of the real-life photos on Trash the Dress are better than your average wedding day photo.
Trash The Dress is a photoblog devoted to stunning photos of brides and grooms romping around in sea, sand, jungle and industrial estates! The site suggests that after the big day, rather than keeping a wedding dress languishing pristine in a cupboard, brides should consider trashing their dress:
“Get it dirty. Get it wet. Roll around in the mud. Drench it in the ocean. Show your husband how committed you are by trashing the dress, and get some great fun pictures while you do it!”
In practice, not many brides will get the opportunity to take their wedding dress for a dip in the rainforest or the pacific, but the photos on show here are as life-affirming as they are aspirational. Well worth a look. (Also mentioned today: my favourite life-affirming photography site: Balloon Hat.com
