    I did mine about a two months ago with Heather Parker. She also did our wedding. The online gallery isn't up anymore but they came out awesome. Our photographer has a fashion photography background so they looked like from a magazine or art gallery. The dress wasn't fully trashed so I was still able to have it dry cleaned and donate it. I know that in addition to Heather Parker I think I heard that Kara Shulz does the shoots too. Have you asked your wedding photographer?

    I met with Jeremy Lawson Photography (owner is Jeremy) when I was trying to find a photographer. I didn't end up going with him, but he had a "trash the dress" option for after the wedding. He seemed VERY talented and was extremely kind and professional. I would at least check him out! GL!

    Robyn Martin, owner of Studio R in Chicago loves doing trash the dress sessions.  I really like what I've seen of hers.  She was our wedding photographer - studiorblog.com

    Kara Schultz does them, she's including one in her package for us-so I can't speak for our personal session yet, but check out her blog for samples.  karatography dot com.  I think she's still running a special for them too, scroll down to the trash the dress apalooza post.

    I have not used Heather Parker for a dress photography session but I can very much see it fitting with her style. She does have the fashion style of photography more than the typical wedding style you see in photography so I can see that working out very cool.
