She’s done it again! My friend Melissa Mercado, an amazing photographer in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, has raised the bar for wedding photographers. The latest trend in wedding photography is to do a photo session called “trash the dress”. For those of you who don’t know, this is the part after the ceremony when the wedding party does something outrageous and unexpected to make for interestingly unique and artistic photos. Some people splash around in knee high ocean water, others lay in the beach sand, and some even play in vibrant colored paint! Melissa did one better and created a passionate wedding scape completely under water. These photos are amazing and evoke strong feelings of love and intimacy, an obviously important part of any wedding shoot. Scroll down to see my favs:
