WPN: Shark Friendly Wedding Photographers

November 29, 2010

A bit over a year ago, I rambled on for three blog posts about being a leisure scuba diver, how watching the film SharkWater shed some light on the cruelty of the shark-finning process, and on how I wanted to affect some change to be involved in Shark-fin friendly wedding banquets.

Well, I’m uber excited to share that all 12 photographers in the Wedding Photographers Network (WPN) have agreed as a group, to offer a credit of S$200 to wedding couples who consciously take sharks’ fin soup off their wedding banquet menus!

To my knowledge, I don’t think any major organisation involved in the wedding industry has ever made a stand for sharks the way we are coming forward to do so. And for a small ‘rag-tag’ team of wedding photographers, if I do say so myself, I think its bloody time and a damn good effort.

If you share my love for marine conservation and would like to find out more about Shark-finning, do check out the Shark Love blog posts.

I hope then this piques your interest on what the guys at WPN and I are offering to encourage Shark-fin friendly dinners. If it does, check out the WPN facebook page for more details about our Shark Friendly offer.

    Deborah Alvares – The very first photo is just filled with so much love. Max did such a great job brigning out your love for each other in these photos. I’m willing to bet that he didn’t have to work that hard to get that though. Congratulations to you both for taking such a huge step.

    PAULA W – I don’t know why I was surprised to see that Max took your eenaggment photos. He did such an amazing job, like he always does. If I could get married all over again, I would jump at any chance to have him take all my photos. Congratulations on getting one step closer to marriage.
