Wedding Photography Checklist

A detailed wedding photography checklist can make an assignment so much easier for a professional (or aspiring) wedding photographer.

Not only can it assist the photographer in calculating his fee, it also serves as reminder of the specific requests for the day. A copy should be given to the photography coordinator prior to the event so he/she will know in advance what to look out for.

Our checklist is aimed at the contractual side and does not make provision for your equipment checklist. It's a good idea to draw one up for that too!

Note: Our free sample Wedding Photography Contract is a separate document (there's a link to it further down the page), but it references this wedding photography checklist which must be attached to the contract so together they constitute the complete agreement.
