Dewwond Mapp Photography Contract

The Guidelines


This agreement contains the entire understanding between Dewwond Mapp Photography and THE CLIENT. It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties. The only way to change or add to this agreement is to do so in writing, and provide the document is signed by all the relevant parties.


Affirms that CLIENT is at least 18 years old and has the capacity to enter into a contract with Dewwond Mapp Photography.


Upon your signature, Dewwond Mapp Photography will reserve the time and date agreed upon, and will not make other reservations for that time and date. For this reason, the Reservation Deposit of 1/3 of the Total Fee is non-refundable, even if the date is changed or the wedding is canceled for any reason, including acts of God, fire, strike, and/or extreme weather. The Reservation Deposit is to be paid at the time of signing the contract. The Reservation Deposit is applied towards the contracted wedding photography package. THE CLIENT understands and agrees that the entire amount owed for the wedding photography package described in the contract is due at least one week before the wedding date.


After the wedding, Dewwond Mapp Photography will provide THE CLIENT with a private password-protected gallery that will display all images previously agreed upon. The online gallery will allow you to download, share, and order prints. THE CLIENT should expect completion of their photos no sooner than 6 weeks after the event date.


In the event that THE CLIENT cancels the wedding photography services outlined in this contract before the wedding ceremony takes place, THE CLIENT agrees to pay Dewwond Mapp Photography liquidated damages equivalent to the Reservation Deposit. Dewwond Mapp Photography agrees to refund all additional paid money if any, (fewer expenditures for which receipts will be provided) to THE CLIENT. If the client is due a percentage refund, please allow 10-14 days for the reimbursement. Dewwond Mapp Photography, in association with Kentyla Arts Designs is a small local media company, and may not have large amounts of funds available to immediately refund.


It is strongly recommended that THE CLIENT schedule a pre-event consultation prior to one month before the wedding date to finalize the actual shooting times and locations.


THE CLIENT will be responsible for designating an “EVENT GUIDE.” The role of the EVENT GUIDE is to identify people/objects of whom/which specific photographs are desired, as well as to make certain that these subjects are available when needed. It is recommended that THE CLIENT develop a list of desired poses, locations, and subjects (family and friends) and share this with the EVENT GUIDE well before the wedding. The photographer will NOT be held accountable for not photographing desired people if there is no one to assist in identifying or gathering people for the photograph(s).


The parties agree to positive cooperation and communication for the best possible result within the definition of this assignment. Dewwond Mapp Photography is not responsible for key individuals’ failure to be present or to cooperate during photography sessions, nor for missed images due to details not revealed to Dewwond Mapp Photography. Dewwond Mapp Photography recommends that THE CLIENT designate an "event guide" (see PRE-EVENT CONSULTATION above) to point out important individuals to the photographer, whom THE CLIENT wishes to include in informal or candid photographs.


The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony officiate or the reception site management. THE CLIENT agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is THE CLIENT'S responsibility; Dewwond Mapp Photography will offer technical recommendations only.


The photographs, digital negatives, or prints produced by Dewwond Mapp Photography are protected by U.S. Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and may not be reproduced in any manner without Dewwond Mapp Photography’s explicit written permission. THE CLIENT will receive a personal-use printing release to print the images outlined in the above agreement.


THE CLIENT hereby assigns and grants Dewwond Mapp Photography and its legal representatives the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish photographs of THE CLIENT or in which THE CLIENT may be included, for editorial, trade, advertising, or any other purpose and in any manner and medium; to alter the same without restriction and to copyright the same. THE CLIENT hereby releases Dewwond Mapp Photography and its legal representatives and assigns from all claims and liability relating to said photographs.

It is understood that Dewwond Mapp Photography will act as the sole and exclusive wedding photographer. Dewwond Mapp Photography reserves the right to bring one assistant at their discretion. Since flashes from guests’ cameras may ruin shots taken by Dewwond Mapp Photography, THE CLIENT acknowledges that they are responsible for notifying all of their guests that guest photography is not permitted at any time while the professional photographer is in session. The formal photography time is for the exclusive use of Dewwond Mapp Photography to capture formal wedding portraits. Due to time constraints and the need for subjects to pay full attention to the professional photographer, guest photography is requested to be done at a separate time.


Digital processing takes approximately six weeks. Creation of a wedding album takes an additional four to six weeks, enlargements one to two additional weeks, or possibly longer when laboratory and bindery schedules are heavy.


THE CLIENT agrees that a 1/3 reservation deposit is required at the time of contract acceptance and 100% of the remaining balance is due at least one week before THE CLIENTS’ wedding date.

In the unlikely event of severe medical, natural, or other emergencies, it may be necessary to retain an alternative photographer. Dewwond Mapp Photography will make every effort to secure a replacement photographer who is able and/or willing to provide a similar package as chosen in this contract at the same/similar tariff. If such a situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found, responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event package.
