Good day,

I am a photographer, my business is not registered yet as I am the only one in the business for now.

I would just like to know if my photography contract is valid.

I had a client that booked me for their wedding in 2020. My contract states that a 50% non-refundable deposit needs to be paid in order for me to reserve the date and time for the services that I will deliver to them.

The client now cancelled my contract and wants their deposit back. 

Please advise if my contract is valid.

Thank you,
