Wondering why this beautiful bride is covered in paint? Well, it’s a style of wedding photography commonly referred to as “trash the dress” that’s gained momentum in recent years. I’ll have to admit that the concept of “trashing” my dress never really appealed to me… but after reading bride-to-be Shelby Swink’s story and seeing the fun photo session by Elizabeth Hoard Photography that went viral this week, I do see a situation or two where destroying my dress could be, well, therapeutic!
