  • Love on the Rocks

    Love On The Rocks

    Sometimes a 'trash the dress' session is not about sun, sand and getting wet. A TTD can also be about getting down and dirty. Without worrying about wreaking havoc on her wedding dress, the bride and groom climbed through rocks and craggy reefs on the coastline of northern Cancun, Mexico to capture the perfect TTD photo. The smiles on their faces showcase happiness rather than drawing attention to the sharp jagged rocks that surround them.
