Terms and Conditions
It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.
The Booking fee secures the time and services of the Photographer for the portraits / wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full.
All cancellations must be in writing. 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.
Following payment of the booking fee, balance of fees due are to be paid: 75% 14 days prior to the wedding & the remaining balance on collection of albums/previews. No photographs will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for additional images is to be made when they are ordered.
The Photographer/s may display any photographs included in this contract in his/her studio, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or slide shows.
All image sizes are nominal. 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 fibers. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.
Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an optional extra.
All reorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted unless orders are given in writing.

The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used.

Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
