Hi everyone! I’m getting my engagement pictures done on Saturday.. our photographers package included the engagement session in the package so we don’t have to pay anything on Saturday... but has anyone done a gift or anything for their photographer at the session? I don’t know whats expected/ right to do?

    I think you could give them a cash tip or a gift card

    I was going to suggest a cash tip as well.

    No gift or tip or necessary but a thank you card would be nice.

    I got my photographer an actual gift and a cash tip. I had a customer tumbler made with her logo on it and I will give her a cash tip as well.

    We didn't do anything. In our minds, it was just part of their job.

    I personally feel like the best gift to give a vendor is a cash tip. They are professionals that you hired to do a job, and a tip is usually the way in which you show appreciation for their work outside of the agreed upon price.

    We didn’t give anything after the engagement session but we plan on tipping cash to all of our vendors after the wedding

    I think a card would be nice to start. I would probably tip after seeing the photos or a slightly larger tip after the wedding.
