Family & Couples Photography Contract - Canada

This photography template contract is perfect for family sessions, couples sessions, and engagement sessions for Canadian-based businesses. We all know what it's like to have clients not pay on time, be late, ask for RAW files, want to reschedule with inclement weather (or for other reasons), ask for unlimited edits, or ask to upload photos again to the online gallery 1-2 years down the road, and more. 

The Legal Paige created this contract to ensure you are covered in all of these situations and more. Clauses included are:

- Fees and retainer
- Delivery of images and online gallery (with two options for delivering all images, or only a select number of images with the option to purchase more)
- Cancellation and reschedulings by clients
- Location limitations
- Photographer copyright
- and much more (see full list of clauses in the 'What's Included' tab)

There are also comments on the side of the contract to modify this contract to be suitable for family photography or couples/engagement photography.

***This contract is available in a U.S.A. version.***

"It’s such a relief to know I’m covered when it comes to contracts! Paige knows firsthand what it's like to be a small business owner and has tailored her contracts to cover EVERYTHING you could possibly need! The investment was a “no brainer” for me and Paige is forever my go-to girl for contracts!"
