    this is what my photographer did. We went into Montego Bay for the TTD session. Specifically, we went to the market with all of the really bright colors, then we just walked down the main street. I haven't seen the pictures yet, but I suspect they are going to be really amazing. We also took a lot of pictures right at the water's edge.
    I love that idea with the town colors!

      ok i am totally in love with the TTD idea and want to do it for sure. i do have a couple of questions:

      1. timing - i definitely think the next morning is ideal because i may have to pay for our photographers to stay overnight anyway, but who in the world would do my hair and makeup before sunrise? and, would you be too tired that early the day after all the wedding festivities?

      2. cancun brides - where are you guys taking your TTD photos? i'd love to do them near the ruins on the beach, but is that crazy out of the way?

      Not everyone does the TTD super early. Some Riviera Maya brides will choose super early because they can get some awesome golden light photos with the sunrise.
      I personally started my trash the dress session at 8 am. My husband and I wanted to start early, but not TOO early! We stayed out until 2pm too, so it was a long AWESOME day!
      I typically suggest to my brides that we go earlier in the morning, around 8 or 9 at the latest. The reason being that the beaches are typically more empty the earlier you go. As it gets later in the morning people wake up and get to the beach and you'll have the Speedo man in your pictures! :) Also, with the direct sunlight, shadows become a problem and HEAT becomes a problem!

Yup, typically done the day after so that your photographer can stay the least amount of days. As for hair and makeup, most brides just go with it. I personally slept in my wedding hair. Unpinned it in the morning and took the curls and placed them in a loose side pony tail. I loved it. It was casual and I thought very pretty. My makeup I simply touched up slightly and away we went! :) And yes, tired is typically an issue, but honestly, TTD sessions are so much fun, you forget pretty darn quickly that you're tired!

      2. cancun brides - where are you guys taking your TTD photos? i'd love to do them near the ruins on the beach, but is that crazy out of the way?
      You cannot take pictures at the ruins, but you can take pictures at the beach near the ruins (that is where I take most of my brides). It's very beautiful. But yes, it is pretty far from Cancun. Perhaps you'd want to choose a beach closer to the Playa Del Carmen area or even further north than that.

            I am planning to have our TTD the day before the wedding. Is this weird? I just know that I or FI will be hungover after the wedding and I do not want that to show up in the pictures!!

              Di- that is actually a good idea IMO! I think I may want to do that to help me get more comfortable in front of the camera too as dorky as that sounds AND so I don't look like an exhausted, hung over mess!

                Yeah you don't want to look like a mess!, I won't be wearing my wedding dress for obvious reasons but that's fine. I can just wear something else.

                  We're doing our TTD the day before the wedding too! That way we can actually sleep in and relax the day after.
