Dinner for photographer?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
