    I think it’s lovely…as long as you think the remaining amount is something they can afford. Say you pay $500 but they cannot afford the other $500……then you have a problem :-/

    @Itsallcomingtogether:  OMG this is seriously the sweetest thing ever- and for it to be a surprise to her is even more adorable. Trust me, your friend is going to love you. I would not worry one bit about its practicality- why wouldn’t you want to receive something that so important and useful to you? Much much better than crystal cake serving pieces or lingerie.  I think your friend will be over the moon after you give it to her presented that way.  Such a sweet and thoughtful gift-kudos! Your friend is lucky to have you 🙂

    @Itsallcomingtogether:  I would be so stoked to get that gift!

    I would, however, make absolute sure that she is able to pay the remaining balance for the session & wants to do so, so that your gift doesn’t actualy burden her if she had been grappling with the idea of not doing an engagement session because it is too expensive (even with your contribution).

    @Itsallcomingtogether:  I agree with PPs — it’s really nice and thoughtful of you and it seems like they would love it, as long as they can come up with the rest.

    I don’t know if it would be better to give them cash/check rather than pay the photographer so that in case they can’t afford that person, they can still use it towards their pictures?

    Alternatively, if you wanted to make it an even bigger gift, could you do a photography pool with other friends who might be interested in gifting and be able to actually pay for the photo session for them? Just a thought but it seems like this might be good for a group gift.
