Hey there!

I'm Rachel Brenke

In case we haven’t met, let me introduce myself! I’m a mother of five, wife to army veteran and lover of rescue dogs. On the professional side I’m a photographer, business consultant and lawyer. 

I help photographers, like you, to legally protect yourself and run a successful photography business.  These videos are just one part of the many resources I have for you. 

Thousands in the industry trust me, for good reason. I have a proven record of winning copyright infringement suits for photographers and delivering solid legal advice. 

I’m humbled to be able to help you all during this time. Please let myself, or the team, know if you need anything,

Rachel Brenke

ATTN: TLT Purchasers

If you currently own a TLT contract template...

The good news is TheLawTog contracts were drafted with contingencies (such as COVID) in mind- they are already providing you the protections needed during COVID. The only exception would be for Assumption of Risk liability waiver, which is a separate document and available in the shop.

TheLawTog® contracts include cancellation and reschedule language that aids in circumstances, including the current Covid-19 pandemic. There is also force majeure language available as an a la carte contract provision which can be added to the contracts. However, as force majeure was only able to be invoked for a short period of time, there are also a la carte contract provisions available with cancellation, reschedule, and substitute photographer language.

TheLawTog® Covid-specific Release of Liability Waiver is a risk waiver for those assuming the risks of proceeding with events or sessions during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. This liability waiver is different than how the cancellation and rescheduling provisions work. Simply put, the cancellation and rescheduling provisions are for cancelling and/or rescheduling an event or session and do contemplate Covid and other situations, even if not specifically addressed.

If you are seeking Covid-specific language addressing mask usage, social distancing, etc., we have a Photographer Responsibility provision available. However, our existing safe working condition provisions included in event/wedding contracts may be sufficient.
