I am really getting confused on all of the tipping.
I read that you shouldn't tip business owners, but what about the second shooter the photographer hires? And if they do get a tip what do I base that on and how do I give something to them and not the main photographer?
Also my coordinator charges 15% on what she books. I am assuming I tip the people she books (guitarist who charges $175 and officiant, I am not sure of his cost since he is included in her $345 basic package). Do I still tip her? Do they get 20% tips?
What about the coordinator at the restaurant that I am in contact with? Does she get a separate tip than the one on the bill at the end of the night?
I just want to make sure we separate envelopes out for this ahead of time. Thank you!
