Yes, you should give angpao to him for the wedding dinner. As for photography service, you should collect angpao from him too (if agreement upon taken the service).

one of my cousins i took wedding, i gave her a 1k angpao. in return for my service, i got $150... then i found out the
videographer & photographer for church wedding was paid 4k...... :(

my humble opinion is to give what you can give and dont expect much back. You want to do free, give it with your heart.

whaaaalau, you received $150! .... why so much? :bsmilie::sweatsm: my relative going rate for photography by relatives is $60.

TS, separate the 2 issues .... 1) you got invited, and 2) you shoot.

$60 is low lor.... even if i shoot for a close friend, im expecting the angbao to be equal or more of that i give. (at least $100)
Photography one whole day 5am+ to midnight....is no small joke.


*prays to receive many many 1K ang baos too, when his time comes*
:bsmilie:

wah, $60 is bad... but like i said, give it from your heart and do not look back. if you start comparing and feel lousy after the job, it can affect your mood during editing.

In the end i always used the $60 to buy the album and developed the 4R prints ... :sweat:... and i seldom edit images so i am always in good mood.
