Cherish the Dress - Karen's "Trash the Dress" Session

Karen's Wedding was in May of this year. It was a beautiful ceremony in downtown Greenville, SC. The reception was at the Westin Poinsett Hotel. You may recall the wonderful shot I got of her on the roof of the Poinsett 20 min before her wedding was to start. Well, we wanted to do a Cherish the Dress session. We are starting to call them Cherish the Dress instead of Trash the Dress since we barely get the dress dirty or a little wet sometimes.
When deciding a location for a Cherish the Dress session, we try to make it meaningful to the bride. Since so much of her wedding had to do with the Poinsett Hotel, we took her to Poinsett Bridge, the oldest still standing bridge in South Carolina, for her post wedding Cherish the Dress Session! It was perfect. The bridge and the park surrounding it were just past the height of fall color, and provided a vivid canvas for her pictures.  First we hung a mirror in the nearby forest for some unique fairy-tale-ish shots. Then we moved to the bridge itself for some more amazing photos.
We hope you like them!
