Jess & Alex Trash the dress in Stillwater

These images were taken in Stillwater, MN. Some of them were taken by the river, and some in the caves at Luna Rossa, an amazing wine bar/restaurant. The manager was kind enough to let us have free reign of the caves for our photoshoot.

Tara & Tom's Trash The Dress!

I photographed Tara & Tom's wedding earlier this summer. They were married on Lake Minnetonka, so it seemed very fitting that we would do a photo session on the beach when the returned from their honeymoon. We had so much fun-Thank you Tara & Tom!

Featured Photographer-Sally Gruman

Here are some Trash the dress "Minnesota Style" images that were captured by our featured photographer-Sally Gruman. I recently had the pleasure of meeting the Saint Paul portrait & wedding photographer & am very excited to have her join our Trash The Dress Minnesota group, and to also have her join me as a second shooter on some of my upcoming weddings! Scroll down to read more about Sally.

Q & A:
Where do you live? I grew up on a farm in Lake Elmo, but my husband and I moved to St. Paul in 2005.
How long have you been shooting? Professionally since 2007, but of course have been shooting since I was a kid.
Favorite place to shoot? Fort Snelling is awesome, and offers many different settings to shoot in.
How would you describe your style? Classically modern
Best part of being a wedding photographer? I love the connection I make each of my bride and grooms, their wedding day ends up being just as special to me as it is to them.
Would you trash your dress? YES!
What advice do you have for future brides? Relax! And be sure to spend at least 15 minutes alone with your new husband. You’ll be so busy talking to guests you won’t get a chance to see each other the whole night.
What advice do you have for other photographers? Be patient, and be prepared for unexpected expenses!
I have never… thought in a million years I would get to do what I love as a career
I’m looking forward… the next few years it will take to build my business, this is all such a wonderful learning experience.
I would like to meet… Dorothea Lange if she were still alive
I’m addicted to… Photography forums, wakeboarding, yoga and trying new restaurants.
Why/How did you decide to go into photography? I have been doing photography as a hobby for years and when I was at a crossroads in my career last year I thought why don’t I do something I am passionate about. Gruman Photography was born!
Where do you see yourself 10 years from now? Still doing photography, still living in St. Paul (I love the city life), hopefully have a studio up and running by then and maybe a few kids!
Who do you admire? My father for never giving up on his dream to own his own restaurant on the North Shore. He got to live out his dream 3 years before he died of cancer.
What makes a perfect trash the dress session? Sunshine, a few clouds, a beautiful gown, interesting location and a bride who really gets into it!
Where do you get your inspiration from? Music especially classical and opera, “Habanera from Carmen” is one of my favorites. Also nature, I live for the outdoors I find beauty in so many things around me.
Name 3 things you are thankful for, my perfect husband, a supportive family and my two labs
What is the best compliment you have received on your photography? I brought one client to tears because she loved her photos so much.
What is one thing your clients should know about you? I’m very laid back, it takes a lot for me to get upset. I also change my hair cut and color very often!
Any advice for brides trying to decide whether or not to trash the dres? There are many degrees of “trashing” a dress. You can go mild if you don’t want to totally ruin your dress or you can go all out and throw it in the garbage when we’re done!
