Absolutely fantastic!

This contract is SO comprehensive! I'm so glad I purchased, it covers things I would never even have thought of. I feel super confident moving forward in my adventure elopement business knowing everything will be addressed from the start with my clients. Paige does such a phenomenal job making sure every single thing is covered and I'm so happy I made the investment!

Morgane Raposo
Everything I could’ve hoped for !

It’s so complicated to find a contract online, you never know if it’s trustworthy or not. But this one is different ! It’s so complete, Paige really thought of everything. I'm transitioning from weddings to elopements and as I don't have years of experience in elopement guidance + photography, it's great to know I'm covered from the start !

Malachi Lewis
Why invest in contracts from Paige? I’ll tell you why!

I’ve spent good money on other contracts for photographers but none are as complete as these contracts. I absolutely love the Adventure Elopement Photography Contract. If you are a photographer wanting to get more into elopement photography, there is a lot that is different from weddings and you absolutely need a different contract if you want to be truly covered. With elopements, there are many more factors that can affect the couples’ day. While out shooting elopements I have encountered wildlife and inclement weather. I have taken clients to cliffs and mountain tops. We have also had to reschedule the day entirely or change locations last minute because of things such as trail closures, storms, and altitude sickness. I provide my clients with a lot of help and planning assistance as well as guidance throughout the whole process. I need a very strong contract that clearly outlines what I help with but that also makes it very clear to the client that they are the ones making the final decisions and are the ones assuming the risks. I am also very passionate about the environment and I love that the contract includes a leave no trace clause! It makes it very clear from the start that we will do our best to have as little impact on the environment as possible and we will follow all rules and regulations from park rangers and public lands, as well as getting the proper permits. These are just a couple things that this contract covers but there are so many other amazing parts to the contract that I could talk about.

It is the BOMB!

I just wanted to pop in and encourage any of you on the fence about Paige’s contracts. I have the Adventure Elopement Photography Contract and it is the BOMB. It is seriously super comprehensive and makes me feel so relieved to run my business knowing I’m covered.

Cassandra Oldenburg
I cannot say enough good things about the Legal Paige Contracts!

I cannot say enough good things about the Legal Paige Contracts! So far I have purchased the Adventure Elopement Photography Contract, The Rescheduling Contract & The Cancelation Contract. I cannot believe how robust these contracts are, especially the Adventure Elopement Photography Contract - it covers literally everything- no joke - EVERYTHING! When I was initially reading through it I was literally BLOWN AWAY by all the sections & clauses I did not currently have in my pieced-together-over-a-few-years contract. The contracts are thorough, easy to read, and were very easy to customize and implement into my workflow! I feel completely at peace now knowing I am covered for so many different unforeseen instances that can pop up on an elopement day. Can I just say, Paige has thought of everything when putting together these contracts, I can tell a ton of time and expertise has gone into them and I am so dang thankful my clients and I are now protected!


"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!"
