How much we’re ready to set the limits for a perfect shot is a topic worth discussing. Some people would risk more, some less, and it’s all perfectly okay. But sometimes, there are photo shoot ideas that just seem so wrong that I can’t find the excuse for the person who thought of them. This photographer who set the bridal dress on fire with the bride wearing it is definitely one of such cases.

I don’t know who the photographer and the model behind this photo shoot are. But this is not the first time I’ve seen a “unique” Trash the Dress idea like this. At some point, it looks like the fire has reached her skin, and I really hope she at least had fire retardant gel applied.
I guess there’s a race now who’ll make a better, crazier and more memorable bridal photo, and I can get that. But instead of leaving the bride with unique photos, I’m afraid it could also leave them with unique burn marks and scorched hairstyle. And I’m not sure they’d like that. So please, please, if you want photos like this, use Photoshop. Who cares if it’s cheating when you have a great shot and don’t endanger anyone. And dear brides, if you really want to burn that dress, you can do it after you take it off.
