House Rules: Note the Photographers 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 Client(s) agree to accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. We advise the Client(s) to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.
Copyright Law: The copyright of photographs remains with the Photographer. The Photographer grants the Client(s) permission to make copies of the images under the following conditions. The images taken by the Photographer are for personal use by the Client(s) and their friend(s) and relative(s. Sale, Publication or any Commercial use of the photographs is not allowed without prior written permission from the Photographer.
Model Release: The Client(s) grant the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns, the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the photographs of the Client(s) for editorial, competition, advertising and any other purpose and in any manner, to alter the photographs without restriction; and to copyright the images. The Client(s) hereby release the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns from all liability and claims in connection with the images.
Limit of Liability: If a photographer is too ill or becomes injured and cannot supply the wedding services specified above the Photographer will try to book a replacement wedding photographer. Under normal circumstances a second photographer from the Photographer is there for the day anyway and this photographer will then shoot the day on his/her own. If both photographers are unavailable and a replacement photographer cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received. The Photographers have working methods in place to prevent loss or damage to your images. However, there is the unlikely possibility that images may be lost, stolen or destroyed for reasons in or beyond our control. In these circumstances liability is limited to the return of fees paid for the service or part thereof according to the percentage of images supplied.
Booking Fee/Deposit: In the event of the Client(s) cancelling the wedding for whatever reason
the booking fee is non-refundable. It will be considered as liquidated damages to the Photographer(s)
