Do I need to provide a meal for my wedding photographer at the reception?

It is best to ask your wedding photographer his or her preference.  A wedding photographer who requires a meal will include a meal provision in your wedding photography contract.  Some photographers may bring their own food, and others may not like to eat while working.  However, most photographers appreciate a meal if they are working a full day at your wedding.  Generally, weddings are event-packed days and don’t leave a lot of time to stop for lunch or dinner, and you’ll want your photographer to be full of energy.  If your wedding photographer’s meal is served at the same time as your own, and that of the DJ or band, he or she will be sure not to miss important events that may occur right after dinner.
