My beautiful friend Erica was married to the love of her life in Texas more than 3 years ago. Together they moved to Colorado, which is when I met her. She is a fantastic photographer and we worked together at a professional portrait studio. One day we started talking about how much fun ‘Trash the Dress’ sessions are. (For those who don’t know, here you go: wikipedia ‘Trash the Dress’.)

So like two great creative people would naturally do, we set up a Colorado trash the dress session, which was also an amazing time for just gorgeous bridal portraits. You know in other places of the country, all brides have a separate bridal portrait session to be captured in all their bridal beauty.

Check out these amazing photographs of Erica. My hope is that you can image yourself in these photos, and that you strike up the courage to unpack that gorgeous dress of yours and create a beautiful session where you get to become a bridal all over again. (Trust me, you’ll get tons of compliments from people on how absolutely gorgeous you look. You’ll be glowing for days.)
