Just three hours and she isn’t a trained professional, I would offer her $250 bucks for the digital files and photo release unedited. If she is going to be editing them and providing them to you with a photo release I would maybe offer her $400-450 or around there? Is there a large travel distance for her? Take that into account too… Just my thoughts!

You’ll already know that you are taking a risk given her inexperience and lack of training so whatever you offer her has to reflect the likelihood of getting unpredictable and potentially poor results. I think $250 would be perfectly reasonable for 3 hours AND basic editing with all the pictures supplied as digital files. Obviously you’ll feed her and cover travel costs too.
