I generally prefer if the photographers do not know the budget since the estimates are often an indication as to how the photographer likes to work. If I say, “we have $100,000” then all the estimates pretty much come in at $100,000 and I don’t know if perhaps the photographer could have done it for $75,000 and they are just padding it since we seem to have the money.
