Aidxm Studios Wedding Videography Contract - 220419
You are hiring AIDXM STUDIOS based on our portfolio and work that you have seen and our approach to weddings, therefore you are giving us creative freedom to film your wedding and create your wedding film how we see best.
ONE WEEK BEFORE:
We will ask for the final addresses of all the day’s events such as start times, grooms getting ready location, brides getting ready location, venue and any other locations you wish to take videos at.
Note that videographers are sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars, ministers and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example, some ministers insist that videographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances, the clients agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the clients to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.
The Clients are able to add extras to their chosen package up until two months before the wedding date. If the Clients choose to update their chosen package less than two months before the wedding date, they are subject to a $200 fee.
CHANGE OF DATE OR VENUE:
Clients agree to notify the AIDXM STUDIOS videographer as soon as possible should a change of date or venue occur. If the videographer is unavailable on an alternate date the videographer will try to find another shooter from their network at no extra cost to the clients. If a solution cannot be found the clients accept that they forfeit their booking fee and AIDXM STUDIOS will refund any other fees that have been paid.
If the wedding day is being postponed to a later date that the videographer is available on, then the contract will be updated to reflect the new date and the package details will remain unchanged.
If the clients cannot proceed with a full wedding day then adjustments will be made to their package details and the contract value will be adjusted. Any money owed to the clients will be refunded.
You are not required to provide a vendor meal. If a meal is not provided, we will step out to quickly eat.
Payment is to be completed through invoices sent by email to the client. Upon the signing of this contract, a $700 non-refundable booking fee is due. The remaining balance will be split into three payments. One payment due two months before the wedding date, another due one month before the wedding date, and the final payment due two weeks after the wedding date. Reminders will be sent via email before the approaching due dates.
If the client does not pay all the fees on time they risk AIDXM STUDIOS voiding the contract and cancelling the wedding.
In the event of the clients cancelling the wedding for whatever reason the booking fee is non-refundable. It will be considered as liquidated damages to AIDXM STUDIOS for holding the wedding date for you.
Any money owed to the clients will be refunded within 60 days.
GENERAL VIDEOGRAPHY TERMS:
We agree to deliver the video(s) within 60 days of the wedding date. The video(s) will be uploaded to a personal password-protected site created by AIDXM STUDIOS, on youtube for easy sharing with your friends and family, along with a link to download to save the video(s).
Generally the videographer picks the music that is included in the video and all the music used is cleared for use online. A song of your choice can be used if requested. The client must be aware that if they choose to include a snippet of a copyrighted song, there is a chance the video will be flagged if the client decides to post it on social media due copyright issues with the music label.
If the client requests the purchase of a license for a song from a music label, the cost of the license will be added to the client's quote.
Video(s) will be delivered in "MP4" format. Clients will NOT receive any raw footage from the highlight video. The only RAW footage that is offered is a full recording of the CEREMONY and SPEECHES.
