Wedding Photography Contract

This template is perfect for regular wedding photographers (e.g. venue or ballroom type weddings) and has been reviewed and critiqued by dozens of professional wedding photographers.

If you want to ensure your business is covered if clients do not pay on time, want to reschedule, ask for additional hours of coverage day-of, get freaked out with inclement weather, want a refund for an unforeseen circumstance, have an issue with the delivery of your images, want endless additional edits, try to get a refund due to your artistic discretion, don't want to be additional travel expenses, etc., this contract is for you!

This is what many purchasers have called "the ultimate wedding photography contract" and is the best-selling legal template in the TLP Shop. 

Note: Purchase of this contract includes any and all updates to the contract that TLP makes in the future (FYI: we update this particular contract often due to changing circumstances in the wedding industry and photography world).

I'm actually protected!!

When I started my photography business I pieced together various contracts from all over the web. (Not smart, but hey I was broke) Now 3 years later I am booking high dollar weddings and it dawned on me I was using a form of that orginal contract. I immediatly bought the Legal Paige's contract to get better protection for my business. In going through the contract I was blown away by how many areas I had been exposed previously. I am so relieved for the future of my business to have this protection!

The Best Tool for My Business

Up until purchasing the TLP Wedding Contract, I had drafted my own using examples off the internet. It was such a gamble and I finally decided to end the risk and invest in my business’ security by purchasing a legally legit contract. It covered so much more than what I had in my DIY contract and it’s so easy to read! I actually know what’s in my contract now because I can also understand the language. This will help so much in educating my clients and keeping my business safe. Thanks so much for an amazing resource!


"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!"
