Couples getting married often purchase wedding insurance to guard against any unexpected accidents or issues involving vendors. A recent report by Travelers insurance found that 58 percent of all vendor issues involved photographers. Vendor-related issues led the survey as the leading cause of wedding-related problems with photographers leading the field by a wide margin.
The Travelers Report appears online here but only indicates that photographers were held accountable for lost or damaged images and falls short in explaining if photographers were liable for the quality of their work. Stellar work backed up by a solid contract and good business insurance are the greatest protections against becoming a statistic in next year's Travelers Report.
