jerome arizona trash the dress photographer: jenna + derek

Last Sunday I ventured out to Jerome for a photo shoot. I photographed Jenna's Trash the Dress session, along with her husband Derek...boy it was such a fun and exciting shoot!! First of all, I love when my clients tell me, "I want to do a Trash the Dress session"! Ok, let the fun begin! :D It's always fun deciding on a location, because now it's after the wedding and you have SO many options.

So on this adventure to Jerome, we were really hoping for some cooler weather and a lil break from the 112 temp we had down in Phoenix. Well we arrived and it was in the low 90's, but with sun shinning so bright and hot, yay lol! There were white fluffy clouds were all around us. Well while Jenna was getting her hair and makeup done by Heather Peterson of Pure Radiance Salon, (which by the way turned out AWESOME!), Derek and I scoped out this place...Gold Canyon Mine. It was the coolest place!! It had all these old artifacts from the early and mid 1900, when Jerome was a busy mining town, from tons of cars, trucks, fire engines, you name it.

Well mentioned, "hey clouds just cover up that sun and it would be perfect out!". So about 10 minutes into the down poured!!! OMG! We were so not expecting that!! We didn't really have anything to cover and protect the gear. But we did have some Look at Heather protecting Jenna! So I have to say that I was kinda bummed, ok really bummed that we had just started shooting because I would have LOVED to shoot in the rain. But we decided to take cover and continue the shoot after the downpour. But hey it's nice now with a cool breeze and clouds out :D

I really LOVED this location, especially for a Trash the Dress session. Thank you Jenna, Derek and Heather for making this an awesome day! I think we created some very nice eye candy, don't you?!?! :D

Here are some sneak peeks from their session. You can also view Jenna and Derek's wedding images here.

Caught them grabbing some booty lol :)

It was pretty cool that Derek's dad worked for Cummin's Engine Co, and a lot of the trucks there had them!
