I am currently about to close a sale for a wedding in which the bride took the liberty of rewriting some of the terms and conditions of my standard sales agreement. I was very taken aback by this and asked if a lawyer reviewed it. She said Im a lawyer wanna be While some of her input improved my contract she has requested that if I have to find a replacement in the event of personal illness that I pay any increase in cost for the replacement She added the last sentence below: The Photographer may substitute another photographer to take the photographs in the event of Photographers illness. In the event of such substitution, Photographer warrants that the photographer taking the photographs shall be a competent, and insured professional. The original terms of this agreement will remain in effect. Client will pay initial contracted amount directly to the substitute photographer. Any fees or charges above and beyond the initial contracted amount are to be paid by Photographer. My concern is that Im REALLY inexpensive and it would be nearly impossible for me to find a replacement at what Im charging so in the unlikely event that I cannot perform due to illness I would have to go out of pocket for a replacement. I estimate this to be around $1,000. (Im charging $1150 for 8 hrs event, 275 prints, Slide Show, Negs on CD, four hrs digital editing, rehearsal attendance.) This is CHEAP for the Washington DC/Virginia ask Mary Ball. Most packages like this start at $2K in this expensive town. While Im young (39) and completely healthy this modification of terms does not sit well with me. I have already denied her request to remove a clause that limits my liability to the retail value of the package. I do not want to come across as inflexible, and lose the sale. What would you do?
