Local Photographer and Wife Travel World, Snapping Shots of Her in Her Wedding Dress
Jeff Salvage is a professor at Drexel University and a part-time professional photographer. His latest (and ongoing) project: photographing his wife Jennifer in her wedding dress over the past nearly five years of their marriage as they hop across the globe on various trips and vacations.
The story goes that it all started in 2008 at the couple’s wedding in Chile. Jeff wanted Jennifer to pose all over Easter Island, where their celebration was, so as to get a few different gorgeous shots of her in her wedding dress in this awesome location. Since then, Jeff has shot Jennifer wearing her strapless Maggie Sottero wedding dress everywhere from gazing over the Great Wall of China and at the Eiffel tower, to on a camel in Egypt, descending a staircase in the Vatican and diving in Jamaica (yep, she’s taken it underwater). There’s dog sledding in Iceland, there are waterfalls in New Zealand … well, you get the picture. (Ha!)
It’s a project they call One Woman, One Dress, One World, and they’ve chronicled it all on their blog (you can check out the gallery of images there, too). It’s really something. Sure beats those “trash the dress” sessions, if you ask me!
Do you have any plans for any crazy shots in your wedding dress, either on your Big Day or after?
