Things To Include In Your Wedding Photography Contract

Number of shots per hour

wedding photographer UKTypically, there should be around 50 shots or so per hour. Anything less than that could already result to you being short changed one way or the other and anything more than that could mean that your photographer might just be shooting away without proper attention to time and composition in the photos that he is trying to get together. You might want to get this down on paper too just to be sure that everything is in black and white.

Start and exit times

The ingress and egress are just as important as the specific inclusions on the wedding package that your professional wedding photographer UK is offering out to you so far. You will also have the means to gauge if you really are getting the most out of your money’s worth so far based on the amount of active hours that your professional wedding photographer UK will be putting into the main wedding day after all has been said and done.

Special effects in the photos

There are two types of special effects that wedding photographer UK normally categorize; the ones that are for free and the ones that aren’t. if you want any special effects in particular, then talk about it in advance just so that you don’t get racked up with surprise charges by the time the wedding photographer UK goes through the post editing of your wedding photos long after the photo shoot. By then, it would turn out to be a little too late to negotiate down the rates and you won’t really have any way around it at the end of the day. Get this figured out early on so that you don’t come across any headaches one way or the other.

Personal use release

One of the biggest costs that you will incur when you are hiring out a professional wedding photographer UK is that you are bound to rack up some pretty serious charges through the prints. The photos of the wedding are great and all that but the truth of the matter is that you ought to consider the possibility of checking out the inclusion of a personal use release clause in the contract that you and your wedding photographer UK are planning to draft out together. This way, you have a bit of freedom to print out your own photos. For as long as you have a digital copy of the wedding photos so far, you can easily either print them out from a high quality printer from home or from a discount printer’s in your local area. Not all of the photographers will be particularly specific about this but this can be a bit of a double edged sword. It would be better to go ahead and play it safe by ensuring that you more or less have the rights to your own wedding photos so far. Ordering all of your prints from your wedding photographer UK can be a really costly endeavour and you should do something about this as a potential client.
