Gifts for your traveling photographer??

Recommended Posts

We started planning an at-home wedding for the past year, we booked our venue and photographer already.  We changed our minds a few months ago and decided to do a destination wedding.  We already put down $1200 on our photographer so we didn't want to lose that. 

Come to find out, our photographer travels at NO EXTRA COST!  Also they are going to be at our at-home reception at NO EXTRA COST!  We are paying a good amount for them though. 

I was wondering if anyone else has their own photographer coming along and if you gave them special gifts? or tips?  Right now we are giving our guests OOT bags, should we do the same thing for the photographers?

 

Thanks!

What a nice gesture!!! We will be giving our photographer the same OOT bag as everyone else. Also, it seems a lot of people do not include their photographer in dinner service or even provide food. In our case the photographer will be sitting down with us and eating what any other guest will eat. We are inviting her to the welcome dinner as well as any events that are planned. I don't plan on tipping but I do plan on buying an extra album or two for family after the wedding.

We are not bringing a photographer at home, but I think giving them an OOT bag and including them in some things is a nice gesture that will not go un noticed.  Plus it gives you time to get a feel for each other and probably make for better photographs!

Although gestures such as gifts are nice(who'd say no,eh? :) ), they are not necessary.   Best gift you can give us is your thank you and glowing reviews for your family and friends.

And yes, as ScrpioBride said, please don't forget to feed us. It's not easy to take good pictures when you are starving for 8-14 hours

:)

 

Cheers.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
