Legal Answers
Q. Wedding photography business licensed in Washington and registered in Oregon. Do I need any other licenses in Oregon?
A: It sounds like you are good to go. Good luck. Also - buy some insurance, and talk to a lawyer about your independent contractor and customer contracts. All of this can save you headaches in the future.

A: Probably unenforceable due to the Rule Against Perpetuities but it’s very rare for that to come up outside of the estates and trusts arena. Would need to look deeper to know for sure.
