how much to tip?

Recommended Posts

please dont pelt me other photographers...


i rarely get tips, nor do i expect them. when i get them i really appreciate it, but i usually find some way to give that amount back to the client in prints or album pages, a gift, etc... the tips i have gotten have ranged from $200-$600. so between 5-10% of the package. i start at $3500 right now. (soon to change though)


i didnt have a WC so i cant tell you what id tip them but i would guess 20%?

I agree that the people who are working wages should get the tips, but I know that my caterer is charging $20 an hour for the staff, now I don't know any wait staff or bartenders that actually make $20 an hour so she told me that includes the tip cost...which is weird that its included, but hey whatever works right.

Since we are meeting up with our photographer while we are in Cancun to get our CD's and DVD's I was going to suggest that we meet at a restaurant and we pick up the tab for dinner. Since it already seems from the emails back and forth that she is a real easy person to get along with, it might be a fun night.
