Til Death Do Us Part – Cowgirl Glam in the Tropics – Belize Wedding – Trash the Dress

Trash the Dress Belize Wedding PhotographerPublic Health Warning! – This is a Trash the Dress blog like no other we have done.  We highly suggest that you make sure you’re snug in your saddle and ready for a romantic, playful, naughty and wild ride.   And now we shall begin.

Wedding Belize - Photographer Those of you familiar with Conch Creative’s wedding photography know that we specialise in Trash the Dress sessions. This is our chance to work with couples, collaborate and create beautiful pieces that they will treasure for years to come.  This cowgirl themed Trash the Dress started like most others.  Beautiful romantic poses in a tropical setting.

Always obliging we found a shady spot at the end of a dock.   Our cowgirl had brought along her own bottle and, politely, offered to share.  We explained that it’s important for photographers to stay in focus but that we’d hang around and take a few more photos while she waited for her groom.

But like all good Westerns the stories lead you down long and twisty canyon trails and you never know what’s around the next turn.  Suddenly our groom got a bit feisty.

This will go down in history as one hell of a ‘rootin’ tootin’ Trash the Dress experience for Conch Creative.

    • Thank you Dara. This session is a classic example of what can happen when the couple are enthusiastic, creative and work with the photographer to create something that is personal to them. It’s one of our favourites!
