I really think it depends on how close you are to him - if he is a super close friend then he might do it because you are such good friends. However if you guys aren't that close I would be nervous that this offer may be construed negatively.

I would think that if your FI's good friend makes a living at photography then you would need to pay for his travel as well as his photography fee.
would FI's friend be going to the wedding if he wasn't the photog?
you also need to consider how much work dw's are from a photogs stand point. Could FI's friend stay home that weekend and shoot another wedding? making the same amount of $.
just things to consider...

Early on in our wedding planning we were going to have one of FI's friends be our photographer... and we were debating the same thing. He was already planning on coming and upfront offered to do it completely free of charge. FI and I were going to help pay his travel expenses and then buy him a nice gift or treat him to some excursions while we were down there.
Long story short... he ended up becoming a groomsman and I was extremely lucky to win the wonderful photography services of Nic (thanks again Nic!) through a BDW contest... so we never had to come to a final decision on how to handle it.
Sorry... I guess that may not be very helpful. But I guess I would just evaluate your relationship with him and have your FI talk to him about it.
