I'm having a very small, simple wedding. (Like less than $2,500 small). Our photographer is just a friend of mine who knows how to use her nice camera. She's never shot a wedding before, or any other event for that matter. She mainly uses her camera for fun--selfies, flowers, etc.
I am trying to figure out a fair amount to pay her, based on the fact she is a newbie and she is not even wanting to develop a portfolio. She's just doing this for me. She has said she would do it for free, but I still want to compensate her for her time a little. (And not just in food). What do y'all think?
