Membership Application Form

* Indicates Required Fields. Blue text indicates what will be published on the WPJA site.

Membership is for individuals, not groups, businesses, studios or teams. The WPJA often reviews web sites that display images from multiple photographers. While we understand and appreciate the team coverage approach to wedding photography, it's important for the WPJA to be able to identify and review the image portfolio of the individual applying for membership.
