Nom nom nom! Now being a wedding a photographer I get to see some wonderful creations in the kitchen but I’m not going all foodie on you so this post is about whether or not you should be feeding your photographer.
Some wedding photographers actually have it written in their contracts that they will be provided with food on the day, they say they are working hard (which they are) and need to be fed. Lots of couples ask me if I would like food on the wedding day. If I’m asked then I never refuse but I certainly don’t expect to be fed, I’m big enough to be able to rustle up something at home and bring it with me. So a lot of the arguments that some photographers use to try and get a free meal, I don’t really agree with. If you ask a builder to do some work on your house, he doesn’t expect you to start making him some food when he has his break so why should a photographer be any different?
But saying that, even though I don’t have the food clause in my contract and am quite capable of making my own it is always appreciated when I am given a really nice plate of food and I can throw my butties out to the birds. Plus, you’ll get some really nice food photos in the bargain too!
Here’s some of my fave shots from the good people at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium and the Vanilla in All Seasons team who work at Heaton House Farm. Hope you found this feeding your wedding photographer article insteresting. Leave me a question below if you like.
