Terms & Conditions

 
 

Terms & Conditions

DEPOSIT

A 25% deposit is required with all bookings to secure our time together and by paying this deposit, the client agrees to all terms and conditions. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable in the event of cancellation by the client. The deposit will be deducted from the cost of the client’s chosen package when calculating the final balance due. Payment in full of the remaining balance will be due by the session date at the latest.

RAW IMAGES

I do not send RAW/original/unedited files to clients. All images are post-processed and delivered in high resolution JPEG. 

Wedding Arrangements

The details of the wedding arrangements such as schedule of events and shot list are to be agreed beforehand in writing (email is acceptable) at least 2 weeks prior to the wedding. The Client shall notify the Photographer of any changes to these details in writing. The Photographer/s cannot be held liable for delays or disruption in their delivery of the service until any changes are received, and acknowledged in writing.

Cancellation

The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to The Photographer/s but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing.

Display

The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, social media, sample albums etc.

Images

All final images are determined by the photographer. Images cannot be altered in any way without express permission of the photographer - for example, no added Instagram filters. The Photographer/s will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. The photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge or venue rules. The client agrees to accept these potential obstructions of view.

Retouching

All images will be professionally edited with the Photographer's judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the Client for preview shall be deemed correct. Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an option at extra cost but will not be made to obstruct body type of anyone who does not have signed consent.

Copyright

The copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to the Photographer. Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically/electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the permission of The Photographer/s in writing.

Licence

The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographer’s judgement regarding the locations/poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.

Force Majeure or Act of God

The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control. Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.

Attendance

In the unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your wedding on our behalf to undertake the wedding photography to his/her best ability.

Limitation of Liability

In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.

Personal Accident

Any directions issued to clients, their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said person’s own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.
