    The photographer I am about to hire has in his contract that during the reception, it is expected that a reserved table and food will be provided. I am getting all day coverage so I am totally fine with this as the man needs to eat!

     

    What I'm not sure about is how does this work? Is he considered part of my reception? My package includes up to 20 people so is he part of the 20 and gets served the same meal as everyone else? Or does the guest day pass I have to pay for him allow him to eat at one of the resort's restaurants? 

     

    I emailed my wedding coordinator at the resort and am waiting to hear back but curious to see what other people;'s experiences have been.

      What resort are you getting married at? I'm getting married at the IBEROSTAR Rose Hall Suites in MoBay and our wedding coordinator told me that she arranges a small table and dinner for them. I was told I do not need to include them in our headcount. I have videographer, photographer and DJ. They most likely won't even sit down and eat - probably just grab something quickly.

          I Heard back from my resort - they are pretty flexible - they can either set up a separate table for them or just head to one of the restaurants on the resort.

            If you are expecting your photographer to take photos after dinner... cake cutting, dancing, throwing the bouquet and couple leaving, you need to include them for a meal. Weather it be at a table with your guests at the reception (usually with larger receptions) or at a separate restaurant on the property, it's always appropriate. My experience is that it's best to be with the rest of the group as he/she may have to get up and get a shot of toasting during the meal. Although, you can't ask them to just nibble on something on the run, especially if it's been a long day.
