Baltimore MD based photographer, Joanna Tillman, dropped this gorgeous “Trash the Dress” meets “Rock the Frock” shoot in my gmail inbox a few weeks ago! She thought it would be perfect for Capitol Romance since it’s equal parts classy and offbeat.

I’m honored that someone thinks I’m classy ;)

Anyway, the couple decided to jump back into their wedding attire for a fun jaunt around Washington, DC. They hit up Ben’s Chili Bowl on U for some half smokes and then got into more of the ‘trashing’ of the dress in Meridian Hill Park. I always love hearing the bride or couple’s response to why they chose to do this sort of shoot. Bayside Bride has a great post on the “Trash the Dress” debate if you want to weigh in!

 Washington DC Trash the Dress Shoot

Here is are the details from Kristen, the bride:

“A few years after I graduated college I started working for an organization that assists people with intellectual disabilities in the city. During my time there I met Dick, a fellow assistant, and it didn’t take long for us to start spending lots of time together. We took long walks in the city, ate awesome food together, and soon we both knew that this was it!

We got married in early fall at a vineyard (it was beautiful!), but after the wedding we decided we wanted to take the time to do a fun photo shoot that showed off our personalities and also some of the local treasures DC has to offer!”
