I would send her an invitation so she can feel more like your friend and also she might take some professional pics of it for you!! Wink

I it really depends, is she there more of a guest and taking pictures? or just to be a photog?

If she is there to just be a photog- No

If she is Both Yes

I’m just bringing my invitation to the wedding with me so that she can photograph it. I don’t think it is standard to send the photographer an invitation, since they are hired to be there. I mean, you aren’t sending your caterers or florist an invite, right?

As a photographer, I’ve gotten invitations to probably 80% of the weddings I’ve shot.  I’ve never thought about it until your post though.

I always bring it with me in my camera bag and take pictures of it on the wedding day.

Additionally, if you’re feeding your photographer the same thing as your guests, you’ll want them included in the headcount and having an RSVP card back from them (of course you already know they’re coming) is helpful in that respect.

Plus, like others have said, the pictures are great to have!  I’ve found that destination wedding invitations are often much more vibrant and fun to shoot.

We were in a similar situation where our main photographer was a friendor. And she just happened to be on leave from work in the weeks we planned the wedding – so whilst she was travelling home to be on leave she would have to travel to London for our wedding. I sent her an invite just because she was a friend. And I think she really appreciated the gesture.

Maybe send her an e-STD just so she has the info. 🙂
