As a photographer, if it’s just a meal and not a gathering beyond that there isn’t going to be much to photograph.  Photographing people chewing isn’t so great.  But if they are going to stick around after the meal, then yes it might be worth it.  We cover rehearsal dinners on occasion, it’s the same principle.

@katiebugbug: If it’s just a meal then agree with the PP but if you plan on having some entertainment then a photographer would be nice to have.

What about hiring a photographer to do a portrait session of your family since you’ll all be together, rather than filming the meal.

I would work in some time for a photographer just to cover getting the details and family portraits. Maybe even some portraits of you and hubby. You would only need them for about an hour. 

If I was in your shoes, this is what I would do: 

  • 30 min before everyone is set to arrive – Portraits of you and hubby
  • 10 min before everyone is set to arrive – Details of cake and room
  • Once everyone arrives – family portraits in different combinations. 
  • One or two shots of the room after everyone sits down. 
  • Photog leaves.
