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 2015 drew over 18,000 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 PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo.





Jason Groupp is the Director of WPPI. Like Woody Allen, Jason adores New York City, far beyond any healthy proportion. “This is a town that is based in black and white; where colors explode like matches and pulses to the rhythms of Gershwin,” Jason says. "I thrive on the hustle and bustle of the crowds and traffic." Jason first fell in love in with The City while attending The Fashion Institute of Technology, then during the past 12 years in his West Chelsea photography studio, and now in the downtown offices of Emerald Expo, where he says that each day is truly an adventure.
