things like expenses should all be part of the contract. photographers usually have a set travel fee, etc to make sure that stuff is covered. I’ve never heard of reimbursing per receipt.

This should be outlined in your contract.  If it doesn’t say you pay for meals– assume the photographer calculated that into the price.

My cousin is a photographer, and has told me numerous stories of people she’s worked with. Obviously, the ones she enjoyed the most were the clients who paid for everything and were courteous (because some would be so demanding and bridezilla-ish). I think out of kindness it would be good for you to pay for their meals outside of the wedding as well, but if it wasn’t negotiated or within the contract, then it wouldn’t be wrong if you didn’t. Reimbursement sounds like the way to go.

Good luck and congrats on your wedding!
