We've decided to hire a friend of ours who is a photojournalist but also does wedding photography on the side. The quality of her work isn't in question, we know she's the best.
The problem is she's said she would like for us to figure out what we will pay her- that's she's done this for friends in the past and let them set the cost. Her website doesn't provide any cost information, and we have no idea where to start! We don't want to offend her by low balling it, but we are on a crunched budget and don't want to overpay.
We are looking for a good baseline for the cost of a single photographer, 4-5 hours, and pics edited and on a DVD, no prints.
