I am getting my e-pics done soon, but they are being done for free by someone who is looking to build their portfolio.
Question is, should I give them a gift or something, as a token of appreciation? I don’t know if it might be weird to give it to them the day of. Maybe after we see the photos, we can send a thank you note with a little something (not money necessarily).
What do you think?

Maybe a gift card to a photography supply store if they’re starting out. Otherwise I think a thank you note/letter or recommendation would be totally appropriate.

yeah, I was thinking a gift card to a place where a photo person would appreciate it, or just a thank you note.
But I should do this after we get the pictures…right?

I agree, after the pictures. Since this is someone starting out, you’ll want to know their quality before you wrote something to praise them.

Definitely after the pictures, but a nice token of appreciation is never a bad idea. Nothing expensive but maybe something they can put in their office, so prospective clients can see it too.

a gift card for b&h photo or adorama will be certainly appreciated 🙂

Photographers love MASSAGES. You have no idea how much our bodies and feet hurt after a long wedding. 🙂

Restaurant gift cards are the best gifts.

I would do it after the pictures yes, as a thank you.
