Protecting your photography business and outlining expectations to photography clients is a critical aspect to success.

As a wedding photographer, you need legal protection whether you’re starting out, shooting for free or have been in business for years.  Weddings are a once-in-a-life-time event (for most) and you should treat it with the utmost legal care.

TheLawTog®’s contracts are lawyer-drafted, photographer-approved, and used by many industry leaders for legal protection.

This destination wedding photography contract covers pertinent areas a photography business owner should have to cover themselves legally for a destination wedding.

Includes provisions such as:

  • services
  • retainer with liquidated damages
  • payment schedule
  • late fees for late or missed payments
  • pre-wedding consultation & requests
  • cancellation
  • rescheduling
  • failure to perform
  • substitute photographer
  • exclusive photographer & photographer team
  • intellectual property & creative license
  • artistic discretion
  • copyright ownership

The wedding and destination wedding contracts are similar and many provisions overlap as needed for legal protection.  The destination wedding contract provides extra hands on information for communication requirements, permits, scheduling travel and more. See complete list above.  The destination wedding contract does NOT include a model release.

Shooting a wedding can be intimidating. You only get one chance to capture the big day.

From social media usage to venue guidelines, travel requirements to rescheduled events, there are a lot of moving parts. Not to mention, expectations (and stress levels) are high.

As an unforgettable celebration, weddings must be treated with the utmost legal care. Which means, legal protection as a wedding photographer is non-negotiable.

Whether you're starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, legal protection is extremely important. Consulting with couples and clearly outlining expectations is critical to your success.

That's why we offer affordable wedding contracts tailored to photographers just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every contract.

We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.

While you can obtain a wedding contract through a non-photographer lawyer, it may not be the best option. Since our templates were created by—and for—photographers, they are typically more comprehensive.

Every contract template we provide is easy to edit and should be tailored to reflect business policies and laws in your state.

In fact, industry leading wedding photographer Susan Stripling says "TheLawTog® is where I get all of my contracts.  This is the only source that I recommend for photography contract templates."
