Photography Contract basics

If you are a client hiring a photographer for an event, wedding, or private session—or you are a photographer who needs a contract to provide to clients—then this is the right document for you. Making a Photography Contract will help the photographer get paid and reassures the client that their needs will be met.

What is a Photography Contract?

Photography Contracts outline the agreement between a photographer and a client. It will cover information such as payment and deposit details, how much time the photographer will spend on-site and editing, and what happens if the event is cancelled.

What should a Photography Contract include?

Typically, a good Photography Contract will include information about both parties, a description of the services to be provided, number of hours to be spent taking photos and editing, and payment information.

How do you make a Photography Contract?

Making a Photography Contract using Rocket Lawyer is simple. You just need the following information:

  • Description of the service to be provided
  • Payment, deposit, and cancellation information
  • Number of hours for capturing images and editing
  • Days the photographer has to present samples of the final proofs
  • Dates the contract is active
  • Number of days either party has to correct issues
  • A decision on who will own the images

With this information, you will be able to automatically generate your own Photography Contract. Once the document is made you can sign, print, download, or share it with someone else. Make sure you keep a copy for your records.

Do I need a Photography Contract?

Photography Contracts protect both the photographer and the client. Without a written agreement, communication problems, last-minute changes, or non-payment issues can quickly lead to a dispute. Even if you are working with friends and family, it is always in your best interest to have a Photography Contract.
