Trash The Dress

So we are going to do a trash the dress session, but I have a few questions.

First, for those of you that have already done a TTD session, how much did it cost to get your dress preserved after the session? I figure if I am getting it preserved, might as well make them work for it right?

Second, does anybody have any suggestions for places to do a TTD session? Preferably north of Houston since I am in Huntsville and my photog is in the Woodlands. If you don't have any specific locations, are there any pictures that inspire you for a TTD?

Thank you in advance.
And now we are as one

    It is really sad, but after my TTD my dress is still hanging in my closet all gross with sand. I need to get it cleaned I just never got around to doing it.

    I had my TTD in Galveston on the sea wall. It was alot of fun. Maybe you can do something on the lake in the Woodlands or in Old Town Spring.

    Totally not related to my TTD, but your son is adorable. I have been wondering how everything went since you posted that you were expecting. Congrats times a thousand on your little bundle of joy!

    they are often also called rock the dress, or day after sessions that you do with the groom.   say you didnt get enough pics of you on the wedding day... you can take pics again without worrying about getting the dress dirty because the wedding is over. Some get dirtier than others. I didnt spend much on my dress because i have no plans on handing it down. was wearing it once. (well twice - cause i KNEW i wanted a TTD session no matter what). Mine is wadded into a ball, still filthy, at the bottom of my closet.

    A very small sampling of my session is here:

    I can honestly say that it was both of you (MidniteMustang and STBMrsMartin) that led me to want to do a TTD session. Both of your pictures are uh... Amazing! When I saw your pictures, I knew that I wanted to do one of these sessions. Now I just have to figure out all the details.

    Been wanting to get a trash the dress session done for-ever!  Been awhile since we were married, finally getting to do it.  We are going to Lake of the Ozarks -MO this summer and we are planning it all out there. 

    Mustang and high heels- that photo shoot turned out amazing!  I'm wanting to go with drown the dress or a paint fest...

    PJS001 have you booked your session yet?  If so how did it go?  Any tips for me/us?
