How exciting! I would ask him what his going rate is and what forms of payment he accepts. That way it’s clear you intend on paying him. If he wants to do it for free he’ll respond by telling you such. 🙂 I’ll be asking a friend that majored in photography to do my engagement photos over the summer and that’s what I plan on saying.

“Thanks so much for offering to do our engagement shoot!  How much is it for you to travel to our location and take the pictures?”

If he says free, you can tell him that you greatly appreciate it.

Then you can tip him the day of the shoot in whatever amount you feel is fair.

Peaceoutboyscout:  Not petty at all.  That is a wonderful gesture if he refuses the tip.  🙂
