This agreement constitutes an order for wedding portraiture and photojournalist services, including the taking of wedding pictures as agreed to by both parties: (the photography studio) Modern art Photograph and contracting party (the client). Unless otherwise specified, it is understood that any and all rights to proofs, final or sample prints, thereof shall remain the property of the studio and may be used for advertising, display or any other purpose thought proper by the studio.
If photographer cannot perform this agreement in whole or in part due to a fire or other casualty, acts of nature or other cause beyond the control of the parties or due to photographer's illness or injury, then studio will return all fees to the client(s) but shall have no further liability with respect to this agreement. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of photographer. Client(s) agree that an entire wedding cannot be replicated, reenacted or repeated for the purpose of a re shoot and limits studio's liability to the amount paid under this contract.
On signing of this agreement the studio will reserve the time agreed upon and will not make another reservation for the specific time frame. For this reason, all deposits are non-refundable even if the date is changed or if the wedding becomes cancelled for any reason.
The deposit is due at the signing of this agreement. The deposit is half the cost of the package to be purchased. The deposit is non refundable in case of cancellation or date change by client. The remainder is to be paid on the date of the wedding. The payment of all necessary expenses and travel costs, hotel charges etc are to be paid at the date of the event. No photography rights are granted until timely payment is made in full. Failure to pay on the date of the event will result in an additional charge of 10% of the total cost of the package purchased.
I the undersigned contracting party, hereby warrant that I am competent to contract in my own name. I confirm that I have read the herein agreement prior to its execution and am fully familiar with the contents thereof.
This agreement shall be binding upon us and our heirs and legal representatives and assigns and we certify that we have received a complete copy of this agreement with all blank lines completed.

Can I add my concerns to this contract?
Yes. The contract is an excellent place to enter all of your concerns with any wedding vendor. You may want to think twice before doing business with a vendor that has no contract or will not allow you to address your concerns in an existing contract.
This contract states that Modern Art Photograph is not responsible if the camera malfunctions. Do you have back up equipment?
Yes. We have extra cameras, lenses, flashes, batteries and computers. We arrive at each wedding with enough photography gear to prepare two photographers for up to 1400 images. This is overkill but it is best to be prepared. In our experience anything could happen.
