What metadata should be disclosed before sending photos to a client?

Not sure I'm in the right forum but I couldn't find a better suited one.

Recently I hired a photographer to shot a family event.

When I reviewed the photos, I noticed that the metadata is empty. Nothing but a copy write information.

I've sent him an email stating that metadata is important when one uses automatic tools to review and categorize photos / albums.

Information such as: Data taken, Geolocation are mandatory and information such as aperture, focal length, etc. are useful as well.

Am I being reasonable or out of line?

What is the “standard” one this matter? What information should the photographer disclose, if any, and why?
