How would you handle this Bride?
We have a client who has booked us for a wedding in April and we've been discussing doing her bridals in downtown DC. She really likes the idea of steps, cement & brick (older buildings), "neat" architecture. She has really good ideas and we've come up with some great locations + time of day to avoid much distraction or people in the way.
Theres one problem, she's extremely worried about going out, getting great pics then at the end of the shoot/day she finds that shes gotten her dress dirty.
While I totally understand that and not want to push her out of her comfort zone I know that we can get her some great shots and she knows this as well. Plus she'd rather take her pictures alone than have formals of herself the day of. I feel like a few comforting words from us would help but I'm at a loss as to what to tell her. Because as careful as my girlfriend and I can be we cant guarantee 100% that 'something' might happen - I would also feel EXTREMELY bad and guilty if she did get her dress dirty. We would have towels, sittings mats etc - things to basically keep separation from her and dirt, but we all know nothing is full proof in that department.
Have any of you had to deal with this? What did you + Bride do?
Have you ever had a bride get her dress dirty during bridals which was PRIOR to the wedding? What happened?
thanks in advance.
