well if you can only give him $200 then that’s what you should give him! I’m sure he will appreciate it. 

We are hiring a family friend to do ours but we are paying him $1400 because he is a wedding photographer And we can afford it. just couldn’t afford “real” videographers in our city, anyone not crap starts at 3k.

I agree if you only have 200.00 then you only have that amount to work with. Trust me he’s probably taking this as a chance to break into doing this professionally As well as making his friends happy on a budget! Definitely tell your friends about the great job that he did! What a sweet sweet friend.

Definitely give him what you can even if its $200. Then maybe later get him a gift card and tell him again how absolutely fantastic and appreciative you are.

Yep, we’re paying around $1500, which is one of the lowest around. Give him what you can.

Give him what you can afford and make sure you give him credit by showing off your video.
