I think either the end of the night or when you get the images. If you tip at the end of the night, she might be extra happy when editing, though ;-).

We tipped at the end of the night.  I like to tip in cash, so I added that to the envelope that included a check for the balance.

Most of my clients include a tip with the thank you card. I honestly find getting tipped in person kind of awkward.

No, my clients make their final payment a month before the wedding date so it’s kind of its strange. when they hand me a wad of cash. I generally get over it though haha. If they had to give me a payment anyway that would be fine. It doesn’t happen so much now that my prices are high. I am much more likely to get a gift after the wedding. Flowers, gift cards etc are all nice to get!

I would say at the end of the night.  One of my friends sent the tip in the thank you because they were happy with their pics.

We’ve always been tipped at the end of the night.
