When you’re considering hiring any friends or family for your wedding – no matter what it is – but especially if it’s an important job like photographer/videographer – you’ll want to make sure you have an actual CONTRACT written out. Not only that – but you want to make sure you both sign the contract (you and them) and that there is some kind of actual exchange for services. That can be money (even $1.00) or some other thing listed in the contract as an exchange.

Otherwise it’s a gift. Or a favor. And while I know it’s all ‘a favor’ – for the important things – HAVE A CONTRACT. At least so that everyone understands what’s expected of them – even if you’re not going to enforce things in case they go bad. Write it out – so that your friend/family member knows what you want them to do – and they can agree that they CAN DO IT. Or not.

Alright. If I don’t see you on your day – have a great wedding and I’ll talk to you later.
