are they paying you full price for your work?  if yes, then give them a gift.  if not, then consider your services a gift.

How did the arrangement come up?  Did they ask you to shoot it?  Did you offer?  

Personally – I think if they asked you to do it for them – that’s your gift.  If you offered – I’d consider it a favor for a friend and would still give them a gift.

if they’re paying you, i’d give a gift. we paid my friend to do our hair and makeup, and she still gave us a gift. we didn’t pay our other friend, but gave him a nice present, to play the keyboard for our ceremony, and he also gave us a gift even though we told him it wasn’t necessary.

If you are being hired as a professional then you’re basically not invited so I’d say no gift necessary. But you could get them one if you’re feeling nice. Maybe offer one or more free prints of their choice? If you are asked / you offered then that’s your gift to them.

My mother used to do a lot of wedding cakes.  That was her gift.  However, if they are paying you then I would give something.

Based on that, if you’re not “SURE” you would be a guest, I say no gift… or after the wedding present them with a free 16×20 or something.
