Making an Event Photography Contract

  • What is an Event Photography Contract?

    An Event Photography Contract is a document that is designed to allow photographers to outline the terms associated with their relationship with a client. Event Photography Contracts can be used for any occasion, from family festivities like engagement parties and other wedding-related gatherings to corporate events like holiday parties and fundraisers. This document covers the obligations of both parties on the day of the event, and it allows the hiring party to request specific photos they want taken. The contract also defines payment methods, payment schedules, cancellation policies, and copyright agreements, if any. When it is drafted properly, this legal agreement may reduce conflicts by ensuring that there is a shared understanding between the signing parties. Different from many other sites you might stumble upon, there is a lot more to Rocket Lawyer than templates. If the client refuses to pay or there is a different issue, your membership offers the optional benefit of Document Defense® support from an attorney in our network.

  • Does a freelance photographer always need to write an Event Photography Contract?

    Whether you are paid by an acquaintance or a stranger, your Event Photography Contract is a document that should never be forgotten. You may decide that you want this document because, when done correctly, it can yield the following list of benefits:

    • Timelines are agreed upon
    • Everyone knows when invoicing will happen
    • Roles and responsibilities are understood by all

    Some repercussions of not having this document in place might include confusion on timing, incorrect assumptions, underpayment, and more potential concerns.

  • How should a contract for event photography be organized?

    To make your Event Photography Contract with Rocket Lawyer, you will need the following:

    • The event organizer's full name and address
    • What photography and/or editing will be provided
    • How much it will cost and when payment is due
    • What the duration of the event is

    As you probably expect from a contract like this one, your Event Photographer Agreement will also include the standard legal language with regard to the independent work relationship, confidentiality, and lastly, liability. During the process of making your agreement, you also will have the ability to choose the state under which it will be governed. Additional custom editing is possible, as needed.

  • How do I write my own Event Photographer Agreement online?

    Luckily, you will not have to reinvent the wheel to get your contract in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, any event photographer should feel empowered to make Event Photography Contracts with ease. Your agreement is built step by step, so you can be sure that it contains all of the relevant information that you'll need. Ordinarily, given the level of customization, you could end up paying a conventional lawyer fees in the hundreds of dollars, if not more. If you've got any hesitations about how to move forward, ask a lawyer, or explore the other business legal documents in our library.

  • Is anything else required after my Event Photography Contract has been created?

    Each Event Photography Contract will come with its own series of instructions on what's next after your document is finished. As a Rocket Lawyer member, you may edit, add electronic signatures via RocketSign®, print, make a copy, or download it as a Word or PDF document as needed. Most importantly, as a best practice, you should provide a copy of the signed agreement to the other party.

  • Where do I get my Event Photography Contracts checked out by a lawyer?

    Finding someone to give feedback on your document could take a long time if you do it alone. Another approach would be to request help from the On Call network. Rocket Lawyer Premium members can ask for a contract review from an experienced attorney or pose other questions. As a business owner, you can be confident that Rocket Lawyer is by your side.
