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've never felt more confident in my business!!

I was using the HoneyBook template plus a free couple clauses I found on the internet for almost an entire year, until I heard Paige say on a podcast that you should never do that 😂 I bought her contract the next day. I've known about TLP for a long time but never had the money to invest in them. But let me tell you, if you are unsure if you should go for it or not - DO IT. I'm a photographer, not a lawyer, and knowing that Paige has customized these contracts to us as creatives is incredible! Going from the HB template to this was an insane upgrade. She covers everything and more. I now feel so secure in my business and client experience after investing in this contract!

Julia Cobb
Much Needed!

The wedding photography contract was a much needed upgrade to my business. I am glad to be legally protected now with a well written contract. The contract was laid out very well and easy to input to my client management system. Thanks!

Tawny Ballard
So thorough!

TLP's wedding photography contract covers everything you'd think to have covered and more. This thorough, legit contract gives me so much relief knowing my business is protected! It outlines expectations (for both the photographer and the couple). It's easy to use and modify to your own business practices. Definitely recommend!

Better than the rest!

I bought this contract in 2020 after using a contract from another photography contract template provider for years and this one is significantly more thorough and much easier to read. It was easy to alter for my needs and my state and I will only buy from TLP after seeing how much better her products are. WORTH EVERY PENNY!

"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!"
