Do you tip a photographer that is doing professional photos for you?

I have having some boudoir portraits done of me today as a Christmas gift for my husband who is currently deployed. I was just curious if I should give a tip to the photographer and if so, how much?

Nope, you do not need to tip them. Photographers do not work off tips. If you think your photographer did a nice job, then compliment him. If you WANT to tip them, then by all means, go ahead. No one can argue with extra money.

No, I've never been given a tip on any job but that's not necessary since I charge what the job is worth and don't expect the client to pay extra.

Yes, if they go beyond your expectations.
