Bently&Wilson...contract?

I emailed Todd and he's available for my wedding date.  He sent me a date reservation form, and when I return it I will also owe half the price of my package (which the form says is non-refundable).  All that the form requires is my name, address, phone number, and email; the date and time of my wedding; the possible start time for Todd; and the locations.

to me, this is not a contract.  there are no terms, nothing limiting liability or saying what happens if he decides he hates photography next month or if he gets in a car accident the week before my wedding and can't be there.  alos, there is no place for us to even sign our names. 

before I emailed him about this, I thougt I'd see what you guys thought.  I'm not willing to send money without a contract.  did you all get a contract later on?  or is this the only paper work you had with Todd?

    Nope, no contract, just that prelim paperwork. I'm OK with it. He's a reputable photog and our package is only a fwe hundred bucks, so it wasn't a big deal for me. Just tell him you're not comfortable and need something in writing and see what he sends, even if it's just an email conversation. GL!

    I'd have to go back and look through my paperwork but I'm pretty sure it's just the initial paperwork.  I can let you know later today what all I have.

    Yeah....I would ask for more of an outlined contract, that's the legal secretary in me though! I am using Mike L and we have a contract, not sure of the specific's right off the top of my head. GL

    yeah, my fiance and I are both attorneys so, we're super uncomfortable with paying a deposit without a contract.  haha.

    The paperwork you described is all we used, and everything worked out fine. I don't think he typically uses a contract. I would imagine if you wanted one, though, you could both work something out.
