    I agree to the terms and conditions set forth below.


    Terms and Conditions

    My terms and conditions are as follows. Please read them, and check the box above to acknowledge and agree:

    This confirms our agreement: that Mendocino Photo & Video shall provide services to video your wedding and related events to the best of Mendocino Photo & Video’s abilities, and shall provide products and services listed here:

    1. Videography at your wedding for the time period specified above (which can typically be extended at the wedding).
    2. Copies of the raw video files, if included in the package.
    3. An edited final video, if included in the package

    Retainer and Payment:

    The client shall send a non-refundable retainer deposit of 50% of the service cost to reserve the date and services for the Wedding. The remaining balance due will be payable at the end of the wedding. Please arrange this with a parent or Best Man. No part of any order will be delivered or uploaded to the Web until the balance is paid in full.

    The retainer deposit is not refundable unless videography of this event is not possible due to fire or other casualty, act of God, or other illness. In this case, the Videographer shall return the money paid as retainer, to the Client but shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement. This liability (return of 50% retainer) shall also apply in the event that video materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in shipping, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Videographer. In the event the videographer is unable to provide the video services at the wedding or event, the videographer will make every effort to get me a replacement. If a replacement cannot be found, all fees paid, including retainer deposit, will be refunded.


    Mendocino Photo & Video will be the exclusive professional videographer hired to photograph this wedding, and may bring one assistant at Mendocino Photo & Video’s discretion. Guests are always allowed to take photos and record video as well.

    Copyright and Reproductions:

    Client agrees that all right, and copyrights and/or any intellectual property rights for all video, taken pursuant to this Agreement shall vest exclusively in the Videographer. The Videographer may use video taken pursuant to this Agreement in the promotion of Mendocino Photo & Video’s services, including but not limited to online, on the videographer’s website and on social media. The right to edit content for public use is granted to the Wedding couple. Mendocino Photo & Video also grants to the wedding couple the license to publicize, share, and otherwise distribute any and all of the video provided.

    Additional Coverage Time:

    If you wish to add additional coverage time, the rate is typically $400 per hour when booked in advance or $500 when added on the day of the event.
