Do you recommend having a contract for all vendors? Specifically, a photographer?

Contract?! 1
Contract?! 2

    I would for many reasons, covid, cancellation, loss of photos, etc... Also because, a friend of mine hired a photographer who didn’t have a contract, and she showed up to the wedding in very short shorts and a tube top. So while she was squatting, sitting, etc. you could see way more of her then wanted.

    Absolutely. Would not book any wedding related service without one, no matter how large or small the cost is.

    A contract is a requirement. Without one or with just a verbal agreement, there is nothing to protect you if you get screwed over.

    Yes. Literally always. Even outside of wedding planning, I would never pay someone thousands of dollars for a service without a contract.

    As a lawyer I am internally screaming - how is this even questioned?!

    Yes, yes and yes! A contract for goods or services will provide rights and remedies for both parties as well as sets out processes for dealing with things such as cancellations, alterations to bookings, payment etc.

    With functions globally being affected by COVID-19, you could also have a protective clause in the contract setting out that you can cancel/reschedule your booking free of charge in the event a COVID-19 restriction impedes on your plans (if the vendor agrees).

    Yes. Under no circumstances would I recommend booking ANY vendor without a contract!

    Hi Ms. Lawyer,
    I asked because I'm not paying to have the usual 8 hour $2,000 to $4,000 service.
    Just very lirtle photography for a very affordable price. Thanks for your input.
