Wedding Vendors: Do I Have To Pay For My Photographer's Hotel Room?

by the Knot
Q:

My photographer is coming from another city. Do I have to pay for them to stay at the hotel?

A:

This will vary by photographer, but any wedding professional who travels for your wedding will expect to have a certain number of expenses paid for. Some photographers will ask that you pay for the airfare, hotel, expenses, food and other fees -- or some version of that. Most likely they'll prefer to book their own hotel, but that bill will be typically amended to your invoice under traveling and lodging expenses. Either way, you're right to think of photography as playing an important role in your destination wedding -- it will be worth every penny!
