I’ve read that normally, you don’t tip the photographer, but I think you should definitely tip her at leat $200, especially since she’s covering her own travel expenses.

I would give her 10% at least of what she would have charged for everything you got.

I’d say you should tip her. Running her business is expensive, and on top of the travel costs. Does she have any other reason to go to N.Y.(family) or is she just coming for your wedding?

Congrats on winning her service! It is optional to tip, but I would if you feel she does a good job.
