I know it’s typical to tip your photographer for the wedding, but how about for the engagement shoot? The engagement shoot is part of our wedding photography package.

Poll: Which shoes?
Kristen in Wedding Attire, on January 27, 2022 at 4:18 PM

My original shoe choice didn't work out, so I'm considering some others. Which pair do you like better? I attached a picture of the gown I'm wearing, too, for reference.

We are getting married in Philadelphia. There are quite a few hotels within walking distance of the venue. Do I need to block off some rooms? Or would it be just as helpful to list out the closest...
