About WPPI:

Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) was founded in 1978 to serve the needs of wedding photographers, then known as the "weekend warriors"- an often neglected segment of the industry. Since our first convention and trade show in 1980, we have grown into one of the largest events in the trade. WPPI 2014 drew over 12,000 attendees and 350 exhibitors and embrace photographers from all genres, including portraiture, fine art, photojournalism, commercial, video, and advertising.

The WPPI values and ecosystem are built on the premise of developing one’s mind, body, and soul through the lens of photography and filmmaking. Our conferences, events, and contests are meant to promote growth and a community in which members learn from each other.

In 2013, we were brought under The Photo Group umbrella, owned by Emerald Expositions, also home to Rangefinder, our sister publication, as well as Photo District News, PDNedu, Shutterlove and The PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo.
