    Finalising the package
    A couple of months before the wedding day, arrange to meet with your clients again and formalise their requirements, including, for example, your attendance for the bride getting ready, the ceremony itself and extra time for an evening party, along with proof prints, CDs of images and so on.

    You can then finalise the overall fee, which should be paid no later than a fortnight before the wedding takes place.

    With the best will in the world, there’s much less impetus for clients to pay their photographers in a timely fashion once your work has already been done.
