Definitely a client to be wary of as far as payment goes. I would not post or deliver anything until I receive full payment.

To be fair to the client, the contract does say "$1000 due the day of filming". It doesn't specify when, so the client paying you at the end of the day is still compliant with the contract.

That doesn't mean my gear leaves my trunk until I have guaranteed funds in hand.

(Says the guy who has only shot 2 weddings ever and only paid for one)

I would've pushed back a lot harder, a lot sooner. My contract is non-negotiable, and I would never have agreed to do photos with video - too hard. I don't do video at all.

I don't shoot until I'm fully paid too :D

Just the way the contract is worded, she just have to get paid on the day of.

This is what happens when you try to be a nice guy and the client happens to be someone trying to nickle and dime their way on their wedding day costs.

Their expectations will be high !!!!

I would never agree to do photo and video.

Given that the contract hasn't been signed that is meaningless.

ppl make mistakes im not perfect ;)
I learn something new everyday

I Built and designed my website, lerned SEO, Started google adwords and facebook campaigns, have 4 people working for me, book 15-20 wedding per year + other events...
Not too shabby


It's true that it's a learning process, but considering that you're already doing 15-20 events per year with 4 employees you should have had processes ready for contracts and advance payments, etc. before your very first event.

Either way, I guess you learn the hard way. I wish you the best and hope you won't burned, but unless you get them to sign and pay up you will probably head that way.
