The title of this article may have caught your attention. This morning I read an article in Brides magazine. This article stated that the brides should avoid feeding their photographers. I cringed; why do they think this is ok? I’m not saying as a wedding photographer I expect to get a gourmet four course meal, but if I am there for 12 hours, carrying 50lbs of equipment don’t you think a sandwich should be provided? Most caterers prepare “vendor meals.” These are smaller portion or bag lunches which is great! We love this!
In my contract for weddings, I have a meal clause. Most of my brides are surprised that I have to even include this in my contract but have no problem feeding me.
Brides Magazine- You got this all wrong. Please feed all your vendors.
