I think most of us photographers much prefer being fed a nice meal than a monetary tip.
Tips & tales from a wedding photographer planning my own destination wedding!

I'm sure more photogs will chime in on this though. You can also use the search feature to find similar posts as I know this question has come up before...

Joking aside, it is nice to get one but definitely not expected or required. I have received tips between $20 and $200, with the average between $50 and $100.

For me it would depend on the price paid - if I paid a fortune for great pics and great service, I would think I paid enough. But if I felt like the product and service I got exceeded the price I paid (i.e. price paid was a good deal) then I would likely tip them 50$ (if I was super happy) or 100$ (if I was super ecstatic).
In my case, I ended up paying for my photographer to have her hair done at the resort on the wedding day (45$) even though I hadn't seen the pics yet and even though I had had some issues with the photographer already at this point (not super serious issues but enough to have me majorly annoyed prior to departure. But those issues aside she had been very nice on the trip so far). I was paying for the bridesmaids so I decided to pay for hers too as a tip.

If I use Jeremy, I'll do what companies do and tip him stock options! Heehee!

I've never received a tip and its def. not expected.
