    HI all!

    Any thoughts on how much to tip the vendors for a destination wedding? Especially if everything is part of a package? I've heard $20 pp or 20%?

      I hope I don't get in trouble for this but I don't expect to get tipped. I set prices so that they are competitive in the local marketplace (in this case Mexico) and that sufficiently compensate me for my work. The idea of expecting or requiring a tip has honestly never crossed my mind as a professional photographer. I am interested to follow this thread to learn about other's opinions regarding vendor tipping. Interesting topic.
