I was wondering if anyone else has had to do this.
We knew when we booked the photographer over a year ago that they required full payment 6 weeks before the wedding, so we have agreed to do this.
I know that this guy has a great reputation and I'm sure he will produce a great album....
But i was wondering if anyone else has had the same request from their photographer?
Our photographer has told us that full payment is required 2 weeks before the wedding, which tbh I'm not happy about (I never get paid for work before I actually do it haha) but I am gonna be request a written confirmation on EVERYTHING we have agree (how long it will take for the album, amount of photos etc) xx
We dont have to pay photographer untill day of wedding I thought that this was standard. I dont think i would be comfortable with paying that far in advance.
I would be very cagey about paying the full balance before the wedding. We were supposed to but I refused, paid him half before and he'll get the rest when we get the album!!! You have nothing to come back on if your photos turn out badly!!!
Its on our conditions to pay b4 wedding.
Once you pick wat u want.I don't mind his stuff is brill and one less bill on the day.
paying him 25% before the wedding and balance on the day
when i see my pics he'll get the balance
We have to pay 1/3 as deposit, 1/3 on the day and the balance when we get the photo's. Dont think I would be inclined to pay before my wedding, would be scared he wouldnt turn up or something. But thats just me sceptical to the last.
We pay 10% deposit
40% 6 weeks before and €50% when we get the final albums and prints, so thats about 6 months after!!!
We paid in full 2 weeks before the wedding but had a contract signed with the photographer stating terms & conditions
