My photographer is a good friend of mine...she runs a professional business and takes amazing pictures.
I met with her today to discuss hiring her to take our pics for our June 8 wedding, and was shocked and blessed to find out she is gifting us her photgraphy for our special day!
The only thing she said we needed to pay her was a tip.
Her regular services include engagement photos (to the tune of $200 just for the sitting fee) plus 8 hours of photography the day of the wedding. For a total cost of $1000.00.
We are only in need of her for about 4-5 hours the day of our wedding, plus we already had engagement pics done by someone else. She will do the pre ceremony pics of FI & I, plus wedding party pics,...then actual ceremony pics, plus a few group shots after, thats it (possibly a couple of me getting ready...)
Our pre-ceremony pictures will be taken close to her (less than 10 miles away) and the ceremony itself is only about 15 minutes away from her home.
So my question is...how much based on this information would you *tip* her? I have an amount in mind, but I don't want to be too cheap, but I also know its being given as a gift so I don't know if my figure is even remotely close.
