Getting Trashed at Isle of Palms

A photographer friend has launced a new site: Let's Get Trashed that will be a photographer showcase for fun photos of seniors/teens. Don't worry - it is not what you might think! In fact, we would love to create a new meaning for the term! This is a teen version of Trash the Dress - a website for bridal sessions. The basic concept is;

"You’ve endured 12 (or more) years of hard work. You’ve spent many late nights cramming for exams. You’ve spent many weekends finishing up homework instead of hanging out with friends. You have arrived. This is your Senior Year. It all comes down to this. It’s 12th and Life…enjoy it while you can. Go to Homecoming, Go to Prom, Walk down the Aisle to get your diploma- and when it’s all said and done, get the memories that you deserve. Get Trashed! No, we aren’t talking about getting wasted, we’re talking about taking the material things that represent this milestone, and release some pure deep energy by drowning the gown, trashing the tux, and destroying the dress (or at least just get them dirty!) While your at it, get some great memories to hold on to by hooking up with an artistic photographer to create some stunning art together. These are your memories- make them count."

So...I headed to the beach at Isle of Palms to meet Mariah, Alex, and Elizabeth to trash their dresses. It was a very windy day at the beach - but it felt great outside!

We eased into the trashing by starting out with portraits that just involved sitting in places they would not normally sit for fear of getting their dresses dirty.






It didn't take long for the girls to venture out in the water. I love this first shot of Alex getting smashed by the waves.



Elizabeth in the sand...




Mariah in the sand...


More water shots...



These girls look fierce! And I mean that in a good way! :)



And then it was time to really get in the water and make some waves!








The beach was quite crowded - I wish you could have seen the looks of amazement that some beach goers had when they saw the girls in the water with their dresses!
