This was one of the first underwater trash the dress sessions we photographed using the Canon 5d Mark III camera+ the new Nauticam Housing made for the Mark III.
We are so lucky to have mermaid brides and grooms who want to swim with us. Shooting in these cenotes is a super duper challenge but somehow we manage to make some very interesting images each time. By the end, we are usually freezing cold with purple lips and because of the nature of these amazing waters, the dress is NOT trashed. In many cases, the dress is worn again in an at home reception.
The trash the dress genre is growing and has changed more into a editorial style / fashion shoot for us. Luckily, we have the magical waters of the underground rivers (cenotes) that all empty into the caribbean ocean. The ancient Mayan civilization considered these waters sacred and we are honored to be able to visit them, much less make amazing art images with brides wearing their wedding dress! cheers- Matt
