- Wedding: January 2014
I used to do model portfolios. i did contracts all the time, they are not a big deal. I would make them for the specific person and payment. Why would I care if the person wanted to see the contract of all things? So, my answer is no I would not send the money without seeing the final contract. And look on the photographers site and see if they are a member of something. You can check on his membership to see how long his has been a member of ABC photographer group. It makes some people feel better. If you are concerned enough you can also call the ASMP in your city and ask if this is normal for photographers to do with their wedding contracts.
