A common (and GREAT) question is the differences in our wedding services contracts.
Wedding Essentials is the general wedding contract you have with clients.
Destination are full, standard weddings photographed at destination locations (not within your local area - think across or out of country).
Elopements - small scale weddings limiting number of people and activites. These won't typically include full-receptions etc.
Adventure - perfect for adventure elopements in exotic locations!

Can I edit the contracts?
Yes! They come as .doc files so you can fill-in-the-blank, remove or add what you need. We provide options and headings to easily allow for editing.
Can I use these contracts if not in the US?
TheLawTog®’s contract forms are drafted on general American law-based contract principles and are applicable to many states. Due to variations in law based on location and business policies, the contracts are editable and easily adaptable. If you are a photographer outside the US, the policies may be implemented for your business, but U.S. Federal Copyright laws and other legal theories may not apply. For example, in the United States, unless otherwise contracted, the photographer retains copyright ownership of images. However, in other countries, the law may give the copyright ownership to the client and necessitate a provision for transfer.
