So I haven't actually charged anyone I've taken pictures of yet, but I've had a friend ask me to do engagement pictures for him and his fiance, and he's asked me how much I want to do them. First of all, I have no idea how much I should be charging anyone, let alone a friend. Second, I would like to give him a deal since he is my friend, but I also don't want to be taken advantage of (so far, he's the first of my friends to actually want to pay me). I've read a lot here about how people begin to take advantage of you if you don't charge them what you're actually worth (not saying I'm worth a lot, but I think I'm good enough to get paid something! )
Anyways, my question is what do you guys think would be fair to charge him (or do you think I should do it for free??)? I'm so thankful for any advice you can give me!!!!!!
