Wedding Videographer Contract
We, Kailee Poston and Nick Howrey ("Videographer"), will furnish wedding event video coverage on date for client's name(s)("Client").
Videographer will be exclusive Videographer retained by Client. Family and friends of clients may take video, providing they do not interfere with the Videographer’s duties. Any interference which compromises Videographer's ability to provide sufficient service will not be held against Videographer.
Upon signed submission of this document and the $$$$ reservation fee, the agreed-upon wedding date will be reserved for the Client only. If a cancellation is made by Client before a reservation fee is paid, no money shall be due. If a cancellation is made by Client after reservation fee is paid, reservation fee shall not be refunded. In the unlikely event that Videographer must cancel services, reservation fee and any fee for services not yet rendered will be reimbursed to Client.
Client must send the full balance ($###) by two weeks before wedding date, or risk losing the exclusive reservation of Videographer.
Client shall provide Videographer the following:
- One meal for each videographer (2 total) during the reception on the date of the wedding; Videographers will eat when the bride eats
- A detailed response to the Videographer-provided ceremony questionnaire.
- Timely responses to requests and questions.
Delivery and Quality Commitment
Videographer promises to produce edits for the videos as quickly as possible. Client understands that these things take time to perfect. Videographer will keep Client updated on editing schedule.
After Client has watched each video, they may request small changes/fixes (example, spelling or punctuation mistakes) at no charge. Large-scale reedits can be completed for a fee negotiable at the time one is requested. Filling out Videographer's questionnaire about the wedding day will help prevent this mistake.
Client acknowledges that he/she is familiar with Videographer’s portfolio and is requesting services with knowledge of the Videographer’s style and that the Videographer’s work is constantly evolving; that the Videographer's services are of a unique and artistic nature; that the video may be different from video done by the Videographer in the past. Videographer will work with the Client to create a product that is true to both the Videographer's and the Client's vision. Accordingly, client acknowledges that the videos shall not be subject to rejection on the basis of taste or aesthetic criteria.
While every reasonable effort will be made to produce and deliver outstanding videos of the events, Videographer’s entire liability to the clients for any claim or loss arising from Videographer's performance is limited to a return of the monies paid by Client. In the unlikely event of illness or other circumstances, Client may terminate this agreement and receive a refund of monies paid above and beyond the reservation fee.
Independent Contractor & Image Ownership
Videographer is not construed as an employee, but as an independent contractor to Client only.
Client agrees to post a link to Videographer's website, Facebook business page and/or Instagram profile with any delivered video shared online. If Client needs this information, Videographer shall provide it upon request.
Videos are owned by Videographer and may be used by Videographer for promotional purposes. Client will retain rights to copy and share videos, but may not sell videos or enter them into competitions without prior consent by Videographer.
Termination of Services
Client agrees that Videographer shall retain the right to terminate services on the spot in the event that Videographer is harassed by Client or other wedding guests on the day of wedding.
