Ah, the current state of the wedding industry. People are willing to work for free or cost. I understand it's a way to see a different location if you're going there for cost covered, but the client should be expected to cover these costs or not get a 2nd photographer. The most valuable lesson I had came early in my career: There's a domino effect with what you deliver to every client. When you chisel and chisel at your fees and what you give to people, pretty soon you're not left with much because your referral base knows what to expect from you. And if the client expects a 2nd and is unwilling to pay for travel, or they don't want a 2nd but you do, it's the photographer's priority to cough up the money to make this happen in a respectful way to the 2nd. And that means paying enough for them to walk away with some money. Pretty hard to run a business like that, isn't it?
