Who pays for photographer's travel expenses?
Posted 12 March 2008 - 11:22 PM
when it comes to this situation with friends i sometimes offer to do it for just the cost of travel if they are really good friends and sometimes ill just give a discount on the photography services.
if i were you i would just count on paying full price for everyting and whatever this friend does is up to him. if he is a good friend of yours he will most likely offer a huge discount if not even do it for free as a gift.
even if you pay full price you can count on that the photos will turn out even better then with another photographer because you will all be so casual and comfortable with each other. and that will carry through in your photos.

He does AMAZING work and we are getting A LOT more than what we would have got using a cabo photographer. We are getting unlimited shooting time on the wedding day by him and his wife who is his assistant, then the ayafter he will take us into downtown Cabo for some "fun" shots. We get all high res files and a flush mount album. Overall, we are spending less than what most of the photogs in Cabo were asking for and getting a lot more.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful advice. Everyone made some really good points I hadn't thought about. A special thanks to all the photographers that gave me tips on how you handle the expense of photographing friend's events.
Nic-Even though my FI buddy has a full time Mon-Fri job and does wedding photography on the weekend, I still agree with you that I would hate to put him out of some money that he could be making if he stays in town that weekend.
I think I will discuss with my FI the option of us paying for his travel plus services. I will bring up the good point that Kristi made about him benefiting by having DW pictures in his portfolio.
Thanks a bunch!!!!
