- Wedding: February 2014
So my photographer owns her own business, and I know it’s not necessary to tip when she sets her own prices. However… when I talked to her last she told me she would be bringing a second shooter along to assist her on our wedding day. This isn’t part of our original package, and we don’t have to pay for it. It’s just a new thing she’s doing. I have no idea how this is working behind the scenes between the two of them though as far as payment.
So I’m wondering if I should now be tipping the second shooter? And if I do that, I think I’d feel weird not giving anything to our primary photographer so I’d give them both something. Our photographer is awesome, so I don’t mind. If yes, what’s an appropriate amount?
