Vendor Contracts - Part 1

This week I am going to give you some basic tips on things to look for in your vendor contracts, because after all planning a wedding is all about Contracts, Contracts, Contracts - just like a realtor is all about Locations, Location, Location - you can't have a wedding unless you KNOW for certain that things will take place and your insurance is that there is a solid contract. Let's start with Photography - here are some things to keep an eye out for:


  • All locations where the photographer will be expected to take photographs with addresses and starting times.

  • Estimated number of hours included i the package or allotted for your wedding day

  • The name of the acceptable substitute in case of an emergency

  • The names of the photographer that will be working for you and any assistants

  • Number of camera that will be used, and which formats

  • Number of proofs and if they belong to you afterwards or if the photographer remains in possession of them

  • Schedule for delivering your proofs and/or final album

  • What is the total cost

  • Is there an overtime fee?

  • Cancellation or refund policy

  • Do you have to feed your photographer? If so, what?

These are all things that seem like "Duh!" things to know, but you'd be surprised what might surprise you!
