They usually add that on with the package, also they are probably going to charge you for the prints if you order some so they will make some extra cash there.

Don’t feel bad. She wouldn’t have offered it if she didn’t WANT to do it. As photographers, we often like to use engagement sessions to get to know our clients before the wedding. It makes them more comfortable in front of our cameras on the actual wedding day and more confident in the quality of the product they are going to receive. When you look at it this way, it doesn’t seem like she is getting NOTHING out of it does it? 🙂 I think it was nice of her.

I think since you will wind up having to pay for the pictures she is taking, it isn’t technically free, or it could come as part of the package, but if you feel like you should give her a tip, then I would go ahead and do it. It is all on what makes you comfortable about it.

Our photog offered a “free” engagement session as well.  Then when we were going over the contract we discovered that a disc of e-session images was $450 so it really wasn’t free.  I mean what’s the point of taking pictures and then only getting 72 dpi images?
