Fiance and I used a friend for our engagement photos, and we’re also using him for our wedding.

We looked at the average cost for photography in our area for someone just starting out, and agreed on a price about half of that since he isn’t actively starting a photography business yet, and he doesn’t have the equipment that the pros would have.  We settled on $800 total for engagement + wedding photos with copyright release.  For just engagement photos, I would probably offer $150-200 in my area.

I don’t think it matters if you use the engagement photos for Save-The-Date Cards.  We didn’t use ours for them, and never intended to.  We just wanted the engagement photos for ourselves, our friends, and our family.

We lucked out on this issue.  Our photographer is gifting us our engagement & wedding photos.  Its a return favor, as this is what I did for her wedding.   But we are still going to tip her for all her hard work.
