Melissa and Chester's Trash the Dress Shoot

Last week I met Melissa and Chester in Laguna Beach for a "Trash the Dress" shoot. A trash the dress is a shoot where you get back in your wedding attire and do things you wouldn't do on your wedding day. In this case getting in the ocean. It was a ton of fun and I think we got some really sweet images. It was also great because we didn't have a lot of time on their wedding day to shoot just them. So we spent a while in downtown and then hit the beach for sunset.

Let me know what you guys think!
