I won a contest for a free wedding photo package from an awesome fairly new photographer. I wanted to get her a gift of thanks but I’m not sure what.
Any ideas? Also, should I give this to her at the reception or later one when the pics are ready?

A gift certificate for a massage and/or spa treatments, lol. I am always super achey after photographing a long wedding and being gifted a massage would probably make you my favorite client 😉

Best gift you can give is a nice review. Gas and food cards are great. I love going out to eat. Id rather have that over spas service as much as Id love it. 🙂

Oh, I think gas cards are a great idea!

1- I’d give her a gift @ the recpetion.(she’ll think of it when she’s working on those free photos of your’s)
2- Try to do something personal. I am sure she has a blog or pinterest page- get on there and see what she likes. My photographer loves Anna Karenina, for example, so if I weren’t already paying her a ton I might incorporate that.
3- Go for something a bit more artsy, she’s a photographer and she’ll appreciate that.

I recently gave my sister (a talented amateur photographer) a GorillaPod, after getting the idea from a friend who received one as a gift and loved it (the friend is a talented photographer-journalist). A GorillaPod is a tripod with flexible legs so that you can adjust it for funky angles, wrap it around a pole or tree branch, etc. If your photographer is a pro she may already have something like this, but you could look into it (and maybe make sure she has a gift receipt/way of returning it if she doesn’t need it?).

I’m a photographer based in Atlanta, and I’d say the best thing a couple could give would be to take me out to lunch or dinner a few weeks / months AFTER the wedding. Photographers really love to keep in touch with our clients and see how they are doing. We need friends too!

Some of the best gifts I’ve received from clients: massage at an amazing spa, gift card for hubby and I for a nice dinner, B&H gift card, apple gift card, photojojo gift card. Always the best thing you can do is leave good reviews and recomend them to your friends.
