No clue, but good question! I thought I’d bump it, so you’d get a better answer.

My photographer owned her own business and we didn’t tip or give a gift.  We did serve her and her assistant the wedding dinner, per our contract.  I think gift giving by the bride is WAY over done.  People should be giving gifts to the bride.

You are not required to tip your photographer.  You are already paying for their service.  I would definitely plan on serving them a meal at the reception.  They spend their entire day with you and probably don’t get a chance to eat, so it is important to include them on that end.

Only if you want to get a gift or tip, then it’s your call.
