Maybe near death experiences will be the next marketing trend. Just need to refine things a bit.

This was not meant to be a humorous thread. It was meant as a warning to those who shoot this style.
I find nothing funny in the subject matter.

I fail to see how the photographer is culpable in this thing.
There are a few threads on this topic floating around, with at least a couple posters placing blame or liability on the photographer. It was the bride's dumb idea, and her action.
The photographer jumped in to save her, and made more than an average attempt to save her, how is he responsible?

I don't know about present wedding photographers. If I ever were one, I certainly wouldn't be a participant. What makes you think this photographer was participating, and not just photographing?but... the only "trash the dress" I've ever seen involved the photographer as just as much of a (jackass) participant as the (drunken jackasses) bridal party. It takes two to tango. And coming to the rescue of someone after participating in their demise is hardly cause for sainthood.
