Las Vegas Wedding Fashion Photo Shoot to Benefit Thirst Relief International

March 28, 2011 | Christy

Thirst Relief International

The wedding community, being made up of so many creative artists and small business owners, is a generous and innovative bunch when it comes to giving back, and the organization Thirst Relief International is a great example of this. Founded by photographer Jim Davis Hicks, Thirst Relief works to provide safe, clean drinking water for those in need around the world, and wedding photographers are currently their biggest group of donors. They travel to countries to document the work being done, they donate their time and money, and they participate in events like the one we’re showcasing today.

The Thirst Relief WPPI Benefit Shoot was an event photographers bid on during the Thirst Relief Mentor Auction annual fundraiser. The idea was to hold an educational event where photographers could get instruction from educators within the industry, while at the same time shooting some fun wedding style images and meeting one another. The shoot took place in Las Vegas during WPPI (the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention) and Junebug was excited to get involved and help the cause by publishing some of the final images. 

So today we have some of the wedding fashion photos captured by the instructors and the participants – it’s so interesting to see the various ways that different photographers captured each model and moment!
