Styled Shoot: Frida Kahlo Inspired Trash the Dress Sesh!

Modern, edgy, creative — three words that only just begin to describe this unique trash the dress session by Melissa Mercado Photography. Seriously, ladies and gents, this shoot is a total show-stopper! Set against the bluer-than-blue skies and crystal waters of Cozumel, Mexico, Nicole & Der’rell’s fun day-after portraits started off with a bang. And, they totally brought their own personal sass and flair to the shoot as well: “A fashion blogger and design enthusiast, Nicole craved to have a trash the dress photo shoot inspired by Frida Kahlo, the historically famous Mexican painter. So she bought a second dress to wear the day after and complimented it with a stunning red rose DIY floral halo, gold confetti (in hommage to her MyClosetConfetti.com blog), black couture sunglasses, and of course, Der’rell, the love of her life by her side. The two made absolute magic on the crystal blue shores of the Caribbean Sea!” commented Melissa Mercado Photography about seeing this two in action. We certainly agree — these two rocked every moment in front of the camera!
