Terms & Conditions
This agreement contains the entire understanding between the Photographer and the Client. It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties. The only way to add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all parties. In the event that any part of this agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this agreement shall remain valid and enforceable. Any agreement to waive one or more provisions of this agreement or any failure by one or both parties to enforce a provision of this agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other portion or provision of this agreement. This agreement shall be governed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.
BOOKING FEE / DEPOSIT
A non‐refundable booking fee of 30% as well as signing the contract secures the time and services of the Photographer for the Event. If the Event is rescheduled, postponed, or cancelled; or if there is a breach of contract by the Client, booking fee is non-refundable and shall be used to cover the expenses and loss to the Photographer. The deposit will be deducted from the cost of the client’s chosen package when calculating the final balance due. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re‐schedule for the new date and time.
The client agrees to confirm the schedule at least one-week prior to the Event. Notification of any changes in schedule or location must be made in a timely manner and confirmation of receipt must be obtained from the Photographer by the Client.
The Photographer reserves the right to terminate coverage and leave the location of the Event in case of inappropriate, threatening, hostile or offensive behavior from person(s) at the Event; or in the event that the safety of the Photographer is in question.
SHOOTING TIME / ADDITIONS
The Client and the Photographer agree that cooperation and punctuality are essential to accomplish the goals and wishes of all parties. Shooting commences at the scheduled start time and ends at the scheduled end time. All additional time beyond the schedule will be billed to the Client.
For attendance at venues at a distance over 35 miles radius, travel costs at the rate of £0.5 per mile will be charged where appropriate. Where the wedding and ceremony require an overnight or longer stay, whether in the UK or abroad, then modest hotel and subsistence charges will be made.
The Photographer is not responsible for compromised coverage due to causes beyond the control of the Photographer including but not limited to obtrusive guests, lateness of the Client or guests, weather conditions, schedule complications, incorrect addresses provided to the Photographer, rendering of decorations, or restrictions of the locations. The Photographer is not responsible for backgrounds or lighting conditions which may negatively impact or restrict the photo coverage. The Photographer is not held liable for missed coverage of any part of the Event and will not be held accountable for failure to deliver images of any individuals or any objects at the Event.
VENUE AND LOCATION LIMITATIONS
The Photographer is limited by the rules and guidelines of the location(s) and site management. The Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the Photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the Client’s responsibility; the Photographer will offer technical recommendations only.
The Client is responsible for acquiring all permits and necessary permission for all locations on which the Photographer will be performing services.
