Rangefinder is the award-winning monthly magazine and premiere website for wedding and portrait photographers. It's also the official publication of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). With a print circulation of 58,000, we strive to present the best work, latest trends and most useful gear for an international readership of professional photographers.

We are under The Photo Group umbrella, owned by Emerald Expositions and also home to reputable photography media including Photo District News, PDNedu, Shutterlove and The PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo.



Jacqueline Tobin is the editor-in-chief of Rangefinder. Previously, she was the magazine's executive editor, and before that she worked at Photo District News for 26 years, as managing and then deputy editor. She is the author of two books: Wedding Photography Unveiled: Inspiration and Insight From 20 Top Photographers (Amphoto Books, 2009) and The Luminous Portrait (Amphoto Books, 2012), about photographer Elizabeth Messina and her work. She currently lives in New York City.



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.




Jessica Gordon joined Rangefinder in 2012 after a six-year history of writing and editing for The Photo Groups' various publications. As senior editor, she's constantly thinking of story ideas, researching industry trends and looking for great photographers (send her your ideas!). Aside from Rangefinder, Jessica's writing has appeared in Photo District News, PDNedu, Every Day with Rachael Ray, The Palm Beach Post, The Daily Muse and Forbes.com. Jessica has a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Florida and currently lives in Brooklyn.

A Minneapolis native, she graduated from Indiana University's School of Journalism in Bloomington, Indiana, where she worked as an editorial intern at Bloom Magazine, a schedule director at the local PBS station, a writer for the Indiana Daily Student newspaper's Arts desk and a freelancer for other arts magazines. Since moving to New York, Libby has focused her journalism endeavors to photography and design.
