My DJ and photographer both owned their companies, so we didn’t tip at all. I think $100 each is plenty.

I didn’t tip those vendors.  (They certainly cost enough.)  I just tipped my hair/makeup artist.

My fiance is a wedding photographer and he’s only received a “tip” like twice. It is NOT customary to give a tip to a photographer or DJ who owns their own business. Is it nice to throw in a bonus if you thought they were awesome? Sure! And that’s happened a couple times to my Fiance but he never ever expects it. And there are people that he does photos for on a regular basis. It’s actually customer to NOT give tips to vendors who own their business.

If you WANT to give them some extra – absolutely do it. But you aren’t obligated to either.
