TIP or NO TIP???

You have hired a photographer for your wedding but are you supposed to tip them? I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this question it's what you feel is appropriate based on the service that you received. If you are going to tip your wedding photographer, a 2nd shooter or assistant is typically given $50 while the primary photographer is given anywhere between $100-200 customarily. Over all the years we have been doing wedding photography I would estimate about half of our clients tipped and half did not which is alright. We charge a fee for our services and that fee is what we need to survive and keep our livelihood going so tipping us is just icing on the cake. If you feel that your photographer has gone above and beyond such as helping with last minute details, or place settings, or pinning on flowers then by all means let them know how much you appreciated the extra effort. We have been tipped during family sessions where animals and a lot of small children were involved as those are some frustrating sessions at times. Do what you think is right based on the service that as provided.
