Terms & Conditions

 

Wedding Photography

The Clients agree to provide a meal for the Photographer if the length of attendance exceeds five hours. 

Entire Agreement: This agreement contains the entire understanding between the Clients and the Photographer.

Confirmation: A signed “Contract for Wedding Photography Services” and payment of the booking fee are necessary to confirm the stated wedding services from the Photographer.

Pre-Wedding Consultation: This normally happens at the time of booking. The Clients will outline broadly what is required and the Photographer will advise on planning, logistics and timings where needed. If required the Clients are welcome to pop in for an additional chat closer to the time of the wedding (about 2 weeks) to iron out the remaining details. In any case we will contact you by phone a few days before the wedding to ensure that there have been no last minute changes.

Cooperation: The Clients and the Photographer consent to
professionally cooperating and communicating with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract. We recommend that the Photographer be provided with a helper (usually the best man) if possible who will point out key individuals to be photographed. The Photographer may also require the assistance of the best man in organising family groups. The Clients also agree to give the Photographer sufficient warning of key events at the wedding to give the Photographer time to prepare e.g. Bouquet throwing, cutting the cake, speeches etc. Please note that not all guests at weddings like having their photo taken. In such cases the Photographer will use his discretion but cannot be held responsible for a lack of photos of these people.

The Schedule: Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of wedding photos Both the Clients and the Photographers therefore agree that punctuality and cooperation are essential to producing the desired photographic results. In cases where the wedding does not run on time we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best.

Paparazzi Wedding Guests: All your guests will have digital cameras and all your guests will want to photograph the Clients. The Clients agrees to give the Photographer(s) precedence over the guests in order to take the photographs required for the wedding services described above. We cannot be held liable for a lack of wedding photos if guests taking their own photos of the Clients continually interrupt the Photographer's work.

House Rules: The Photographer(s) are sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars, ministers and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example some ministers insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the Photographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances the Clients agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the photographer and equipment used. We advise Clients to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.

If both photographers are unavailable and a replacement photographer cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received.
