One dress. One wedding. 19 wedding photo shoots. A ballerina dancing in a shower head. Icebergs made of ice cream cones and snow made of ice cream. Scroll down for more of this week's finds....
Like any other newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Salvage wanted iconic wedding photos on their big day (you know, the bride-and-groom-lovingly-gazing-at-each-other-while-the-sun-sets-in-the-background moment), even more so because the groom's a photographer. Unfortunately for them, the lighting conditions were so bad he decided to take some more snapshots the following day during sunrise and sunset. Mrs. Salvage's dress, a Maggie Sottero creation, was made to be folded to be whisked away to their remote Easter Island wedding. The wedding dress traveled with them on their hiking trips in the Alps and China where Mrs. Salvage once again posed (Mr. Salvage obviously couldn't get enough of Mrs. Salvage in her wedding dress). Anywhere they went, passers-by were amused at what they thought to be a wedding photo shoot, which inspired the photographer husband to turn it into a project. The dress came with the couple in the next five years of their travels. They've been to 19 countries so far. That's one lucky dress! Whoever said a wedding dress is worn only once?
Here, Mr. and Mrs. Salvage share some photos from their wedding album, or more appropriately, Mr. Salvage shares solo shots of his wife from their wedding album.

William Kass, another photographer, has his own very interesting project that's got him dolls as models instead of a wife. Using food and everyday household objects as backdrops, he buys dolls, styles them, and places them in imaginative settings or movie scene recreation. A work in progress, Mr. Kass has more whimsical projects up his sleeve and he's got them sorted down to the most minute detail.

Real ice cream was used in the recreation of this scene from the movie 'Titanic', so lighting was strategically placed and timed so the ice cream wouldn't melt.

Here's one to round off last week's photo-hunting...
