I know, I know, I'm a bad girl who isn't going to take the time to trawl through TPF looking for the other times this question has been asked and answered but I am on really limited internet time...what with a destination wedding to plan (6 weeks until I'm no longer living in sin, yay!) and a lil bubby currently crawling under my feet and making a cubby house there... A friend (don't know her VERY well, she's an ex workmate of my fiance's) just got engaged and sent me a message on Facebook asking me to be her wedding photographer. I have NEVER shot a wedding before, at least not in a professional capacity. I have only taken my own photographs of a wedding (no pressure). She is just going off my photos of my daughter, and other photography she has seen on my Flickr page. She also said they would pay me but I'm not sure how comfortable I am taking money from them for this. If I do, I was thinking just charge them a couple of hundred so I can cover equipment rental costs and the like. If you were me and in this situation what would you do? 1) Would you charge? 2) If so, how much? I know I will need an assistant and a back up body so I will rent a back up cam. Not sure who I will get as an assistant but I have someone in mind. What other things should I take into account? Thanks in advance guys!
