WHAT IS WPPI?
Wedding Photographers International was founded in the 1970's and provided a much-needed forum for photographers who had long asked for guidance, and an association of their own.
In 1980, WPI held its first convention and trade show in Las Vegas, at Caesar’s Palace. There were 2,500 attendees and 24 trade show booths. At the 2011 WPPI Convention and Trade Show, there were over 15,000 attendees and 350 trade show booths.
Realizing that many of WPI’s present and future members were involved in both wedding and portrait photography, Wedding Photographers International officially became Wedding & Portrait Photographers International on January 1, 1995. In 2011, WPPI includes members world-wide from all genres of photography, including fine art, commercial, and advertising.
In 2010, WPPI became part of the Nielsen Photo Group, which includes PDN, Rangefinder, PhotoServe, PhotoSource, IPN, PhotoPlus and Outdoor Photo Expo. This group covers all platforms for professional photographers, including conferences and trade shows, contests and competitions, social networking, trade publications and more.
