honestly you should pay what you feel her work is worth and if it is comparable to the better in your city then you should go by those rates. I would let her come up with a price first though because as a photographer she should be quoting out how much her time is worth and how many hours she will be spending on your event and post editing and such. Once she has made a determination of price it might actually be lower than what you were expecting. Especially if she’s new she will be hestitant to probably say something over a $1k right off the bat. You should never respond first though so play your cards and negotiate price if she ends up on the high end of your budget

When we were searching for photographers in Edmonton, it seemed like most of the newer photographers were charging between $800-$1200 for full day coverage with e-sessions while the more experienced ones were charging $4000+.  You should let your photographer know what your ballpark budget is for photography.  I think it’s also a good idea to compare her work to others before agreeing to a price as well.
