As a photographer it’s expected we don’t sit until the bride and groom eat. Even then sometimes we don’t get our food right away or at all. I’m not here to debate whether or not photographers should request a meal; I’m here to provide solutions and tips for those who prefer or need to snack throughout the day and for those who know they won’t be eating until long after the wedding has ended.
The majority of my weddings begin somewhere between 3-5pm. Normally this means I am away from home all day and won’t be eating at my usual time.
When prepping for my long wedding days, I try to avoid eating a heavy meal. For some people this may work, but for me I tend to get sleepy. I try to keep it light and snack throughout the day.
My go to snacks include: beef jerky, cubed cheese, fresh fruit and applesauce. I also pack water or some type of sports drink.
When planning your wedding days what are your favorite snacks? Share a photo of your snacks on instagram using the hashtag #fitfotographer I’d love to see what’s in your camera bag!
