    Hello all,

    This may be an odd question but did anyone do a TTD session without thier spouse? I am pushing it by even getting an hour of the wedding day for photos out of my fiance, I can't see him agreeing to another day of photography. The TTD pictures are the ones I love looking at the most, and I would prefer him there but my photographer said she doesn't care if it is just me (that could also be because I told her I would do anythign she asked, no matter how ridiculous) and they look like so much fun adn such a unique part of a destination wedding.

      my husband hates having his picture taken. i was going to TTD without him & he told me he would do it. i was really happy :)

      before he agreed to do it, i had already made plans to trash with 2 friends. so I ended up trashing the dress 3 times. 1. with my husband the day before the wedding (it was a different dress). 2. The night of the wedding in the ocean. 3. the day after with 2 friends.

      I told all my married friends they were welcome to bring their dresses (or any white dress) and trash them with me after the wedding. we had a lot of fun with it & i love the pictures.

      I've seen girls trash the dress with their BMs too

      There are no rules!!!

      i did my TTD without my DH - there is no way in hell my DH would have ever gone for doing it with me, and if i somehow would've managed to con him into it, he would've been so unhappy the entire time and wouldnt have been very cooperative. unlike my DH, i love having my photo taken & am very willing to cooperate with a photographer. my dad used to be a professional photographer when i was growing up, so i am quite accustomed to being a photographer's guinea pig. i have so many wonderful photos of me growing up thanks to being my dad's little test model. doing my TTD alone was such a wonderful & pleasant experience. i really had fun with it and have some really beautiful bridal portraits to show for it. unfortunately i am still working on putting together a slideshow for you girls, but i have been really busy with work & havent had much time to dedicate to it. but here are a couple that i have uploaded into my photobucket account so you can see that you dont need a groom for beautiful TTD photos. i used a local photographer about 4 weeks after our wedding in cabo.

        Not to hijack, but... Maura you are so freakin cute! lol I love your ttd pics.

        As for the original question, I think you can totally do it without DH. FI and I are doing them together, but I'm pretty sure he has no idea what he's in for. muahahahahaha

          I would say that when I first heard of TTD the only pics I found were of just Brides. I think most traditional wedding TTD sessions are only of the bride. (And this could just be my research..) But I love the pics without the groom just as much as with. I say go for it!!

          ps. Maura your pics are delightful! I love the one of you perched on a log.

            Thanks Ladies! I was worried it would seem self-centered to do them without him. I MAY get him to pose for a few if I ply him with liquor (heehee)

              I can't wait for TTD pics!! But I know, like you, that even an hour of pics is asking WAY too much of FI.....and I can not see him at all splashing around in the water or laying in the sand in a suite (god forbid he get dirty)

              ANYWAY I'm going to rope him into it by saying that it is what I want for my wedding gift from him. It's worth a try!

                I know my FI will not want to 1 take the TTD pictures and 2 take the time out for it. Although I really want to do a TTD as well I can't imagine fitting it in to our limited time but if I really want it and figure it out he may give in (finger crossed)

                  I'm trying to talk my fiance into doing this with me. He's sort-of agreed to limited pictures. So mostly it'll just be me unless he changes his mind.
