Booking Fee / Deposit Payments
A non-refundable booking fee of 25% of the agreed fee for the event or £300.00 – whichever is the greater – is due as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on our website secures the time and services of an agreed number of photographers for the event and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation.
The booking fee 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 in full at least six weeks before the event.
Events 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 details of the event arrangements are to be agreed beforehand in writing (email is acceptable). The Client shall notify us of any changes to these details in writing. We cannot be held liable for delays or disruption in the delivery of our service until any changes are received, and acknowledged in writing.
The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to us but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid.
Any cancellation less than 12 weeks before the event will result in the payment in full becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing.
The client(s) hereby allow(s) us 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…
All image sizes are nominal.
We 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.
It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.
For a booking involving a ceremony at certain venues, our movements are sometimes restricted by the officiant in charge.
The area from which we are able to cover the ceremony may not be the our choice and we cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.
Retouching and Editing
All images will be adjusted for exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc…
Our judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to you for preview shall be deemed correct.
Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to you as an option at extra cost.
Your images from the event will ONLY be retained and backed up for a maximum of six months by us. After this period of time ALL images shall be deleted.
The hi-resolution digital images will NOT be released to you until after the images from the event have been processed and ALL prints and any albums have been ordered and paid for.
Prints / Reorders
All prints and reorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted by us unless orders are given in writing.
The fee paid does NOT include the production of prints and reorders or any form of album unless agreed to in writing with us.
The copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to us.
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 us in writing.
We shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used.
Our 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.

Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, we will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.

Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
Any directions issued to clients or other parties being photographed or to employees during the event are deemed to be at said persons own risk.
