Trashing the Dress: Misha + Liam

Oct 27, 2008 | Trash the Dress

Wow, after such a busy week, it feels like months since I met with Misha and Liam for their trash the dress session – but in fact it was just last Sunday.  It was such a glorious day – bright, breezy and sunny.  Yay!  We started out at the childrens’ play area of a little park in north Ballard, where we had a lot of fun messing around on the swings, merry-go-round and various other wedding-dress-unfriendly play things.  The park was busy so I got creative with my shutter speeds and angles and got some cool effects.  I love the ones on the merry-go-round!

After a while at the park, we headed down to Golden Gardens, my favorite trash the dress spot.  I love the photos of Misha in the sand dunes – she looks so pretty and content.  She even braved the freezing cold water for a quick paddle before we headed off.  Thanks for being such a daring bride, and enjoy your teaser pics!
