@Renee1: My FI and I will do a 1 hour couples shot in Paris as part of our honeymoon. Our photog has asked for a €50 deposit (we’ll use paypal for this), with the full amount (so an additional €350) to be paid when we meet up with him for the session.

@Renee1: We are eloping in Mexico and our photographer required US payments (she also doubles in the US occassionally too). The deposit was $350 via paypal, and the $300 remainder is being paid in US cash the day of. That is all for 3 hours, rights to the photos, a disc of the photos 1 month after the wedding, and a much smaller disk with 15-30 photos before we leave Mexico (4 days later) so our friends & family at our reception back in their town can see it all.

@Renee1:  I paid a foreign photographer!  She was Canadian and we were in the US.  The price was in Canadian dollars.

We also paid 25% down I think.  The rest was due after we received our images I think.

We actually opened a no foreign transaction fee credit card (Capitol One) for all our Canadian purchases.  I discovered (after a work trip to Finland) than my AMEX racked up quite the fees!  They card a foreign transaction fee and that was not the conversion part.

I just had my wedding in Paris and I put down the photographer deposit in euros over PayPal.  I also gave the rest in cash when I got here.  She just invoiced me through PayPal with a bill for however many euros we agreed on for a deposit.
