This was my first trash-the-dress session, and of course theirs too, so we went into the evening with only a vague idea of how we would go about it. Alyssa and Curtis took me to Coronado beach, just a few miles from their home. We were surrounded by hills of succulents, a bright pink sky, and dolphins jumping in and out of the waves in front of us. We had an hour and a half until the sun set, so we took our time moving from the beach to the shore, candidly photographing them the entire way. We ended the night with a few last portraits at a bay overlooking the San Diego skyline, and capped the night with dinner and drinks at one of their favorite local spots. If I get another chance to photograph a trash-the-dress session, this one will be hard to top!
