Alright guys, I know you can help me out!!
FI and I got a quote from a cake maker before we moved our wedding due to our deployment. When we asked to move the date and told him why, we said he would make the cake for free for us since we're "serving our country"
We thought it was such a nice offer, and accepted. We are on an incredibly small budget. (8k) However, now he's offering to serve as a backup photographer for free. He wants to get back into photographing weddings, and this would help build his portfolio. Yet again, such a great offer.
We accepted the cake, but I would feel odd accepting the back up photographer part too. I was thinking we'd at least offer to pay him for his time?
Good idea/bad idea?
How much would be a reasonable offer? I don't want to offend him with a crap offer, but we didn't budget a 2nd photographer??
