Tipping question

Our wedding is over.  We paid our photographer to stay 3 hours.  My MOH forgot to give him his final payment on the day of the wedding (she remembered everyone else but forgot him).  So he was ready to leave when DH told him about our garter toss coming up (we had tied a rubber chicken, ball and chain, granny panties and etc under my dress) he WANTED to stay to see that and still photographed while he was there.  Then he stayed for the cake cutting too.  So all in all he stayed an extra hour min.  He IS self employed and normally charges 250.00 for each additional hour but waived it because he CHOSE to stay....So long question short....how much should I tip him? His original fee 1100.00 for 3 hours + all the digital negatives.  And 4x5's of 50 photos.

    IDK I'd pay him the extra 250. 00, since it was y'all's mistake in the first place.

    Ooo, good point.  Why would your H even tell him?  And why is the fact that you forgot to pay him relevant to this story?  Was he trying to leave before the 3 hours since you didn't pay?  I'm confused.
