Superman Chic

April 18, 2010

The term ‘Trash the Dress’ is thrown about a lot in this industry so it’s nice to see a shoot where I can comfortably call it a ‘real’ Trash the Dress shoot – boy is this David’s Bridal number destroyed!

The shoot took place at Dry Lake Bed in Las Vegas, Nevada and the theme was Superman and Lois Lane having a great time (!)Β Eric, the groom is a huge Superman superfan and their wedding theme was actually, Superman Chic (which you can see for yourself here.) “Honestly, we just wanted them have a great time and I think that definitely shows” photographer Mike explained. “We believe they are a Rock n Roll couple because Nichole destroyed her dress and at the end of the day, she decided to shadowbox it and hang it in their house as their own personal work of art. Her dress will never be locked away in a box, it will always be on display for all to see and that is pretty rockin’.”

Thanks to Mike for sharing this hilarious shoot with us

    every time i see these, i get a huge smile on my face. By far one of the most amazing things i have done with my husband, besides get married of course πŸ˜‰
    what a way to end the wedding festivities by having a paint fight. Thank you Kat for featuring us, we are deeply honored and blessed to have such amazing photographers to capture our hearts!!

    These are terrific! It’s making it harder to not want to do the same thing the day after my wedding! You really captured the personalities and love of The Wolf’s πŸ™‚

  4. Mike and Courtney are the best! They photographed my daughter’s wedding and it ROCKED. I don’t however think she would EVER want to “trash” her dress. Looks like fun though!

    Great, they did had a blast of a session it seems..
    Are you still in contact with the bride/model.
    I might be interested in purchasing the wedding dress as is, no cleaning or repairs required.
    Please feel free to contact me at or pass my message to the bride.
    This is a serious request and for a good cause.
    Thank you for your help
