Hey bees, I need some help! I’m getting ready to interview 2 photographers and hopefully put down a deposit/sign a contract for one. I’m sure most wedding vendors have their own contracts, but I’d like to have my own for some of my vendors that are beginners…just in case, to save my own butt.
Do you guys know of any websites that may have a whole group of sample contracts that I can look at/copy to use for my own?? I want to make sure nothing is left out, and that I’ll be completely covered. Where did you get your contracts from??
Any help would be appreciated! thanks!

If you google “sample photography contract” or “sample vendor contract” there are some good links. I would check out a couple of those, copy and paste what you like from each until you get a document you feel includes everything you want included.
One thing I would want to include on a photography contract is who owns the rights to the photos – there are different types of ownership: personal use, commercial use, etc. and you do not automatically own the rights to the pictures.
I would also make sure to spell out payment terms, including amounts and dates payments are to be made.
