Wedding Contract update

I have a really solid wedding contract but I wanted to see if there was anything I need to add or specify with the move to HD. Nothing else has changed, but I am now shooting only in HD. Did any of you add anything specific to shooting in HD such as the higher potential for dropouts , etc. (i haven't had any yet myself but from what I read, there's a better chance of it)

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

The customer doesn't (nor should they) CARE about what challenges you face in making the product they're purchasing. They just want a good product.

Generally speaking, drawing attention to stuff that MIGHT go wrong before anything actually HAS gone wrong is a pretty poor form of business communication.

A better one is that if YOU ever DO see a dropped frame in your work, FIX IT. (that's what editing is for, after all)

The best attitude in business is to smile confidently for all customers, turn out a good product, and sweat over whatever needs to be sweated over in private.

Typically, contracts come into play when relationships break down. So your best defense against contract disputes is to keep your customers happy.
