Most times the B/G seek me out and make me sit down to eat! Then again, I am the kind of person that can run full steam for a 14 hour day with only a bagel in the morning. Thew few times I have not gotten a meal the B/G apologized left and right, and I ordered a pizza on my way home


Anyways, no one is obligated to feed us. I know it is different to a degree, but when I'm on an all day commercial shoot I certainly don't expect to be fed by the clients.

Disagree. Working for 14 hours a day with a bagel is unhealthy. I rather work and eat healthy, no amount of money is equal to bad health down the line. From where I live, employees have a right to be given a 15 minute break during a shift less than 5 hours, more than 5 hours is a 30 minute lunch break and a 15.

I do wedding photography because I enjoy it, but I'm definitely not going to do it if it affects my health or diet in any way. I'll eat when I need to.

So did the client end up providing you a meal at this one?

In our most recent wedding, the bride and groom went as far as providing us with namecards and table reservations.


That's exactly what I had at yesterday's wedding! Ate a fat steak sitting right in with the guests. And champagne for the toasts! I'll have to remember when it comes editing time to put in a bit of extra effort on this couple's pictures.

We did end up having a meal brought to us in the separate bar section of the location AFTER everyone had eaten and the bride and groom were up and moving around. We enjoyed our meal, then went back to work. It was after 9pm.
