Exclusive Photographer - The Photographer shall be the exclusive photographer retained by the Client for the purpose of photographing the wedding. Family and friends of the Client shall be permitted to photograph the wedding as long as they shall not interfere with the Photographer’s duties and do not photograph poses arranged by the Photographer.
Wedding Booking Fee - The deposit secures the time and services of the photographer(s) for the wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation. Cancellation of a wedding booking less than 12 weeks before the booked wedding date will result in the full fee becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing to "Littles & Loves Photography" to my operating address at 12 Heather Drive, LS256PW. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as The Photographer(s) can re-schedule for the new date and time.
Wedding Payments - Following payment of the booking fee, the balance of fees due are to be paid three whole months prior to the wedding.
Special Requests/Coverage - The client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as the photographer’s professional expertise determines and that not one photograph will be deemed more important than another. Special requests are not binding instructions, although every effort is made to comply with client’s wishes. There is no guarantee that any particular number of images will be produced.
Retouching - Editing will be to my signature style which is illustrated throughout my website and social media, I ask that no additional filters are added when uploading to social media. Any additional edits must be requested within 7 days of receiving the images.
Licence - The Photographer(s) shall be granted complete artistic licence including in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgement regarding the locations / poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct and final. Due to the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
Model Release - The Client(s) grant the Photographers and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns, the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the images for social media, editorials, advertising and any other. If there is any reason why certain individuals cannot be shared on social media it is down to the couple to notify the photographer in advance of the wedding.
Force Majeure - Every effort will be made to carry out the contract but its due performance is subject to alteration or cancellation by the Photographers owing to any cause beyond their control (eg acts of God, change in legislation, floods, fire, computer failure, etc). In the unlikely event of total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by the Photographers, liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid.
Attendance - In the unlikely event of the assigned photographer(s) is/are unable to attend your photography session due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend on our behalf to undertake the photography to their best ability.
Limitation of Liability - In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
Delivery policy - A sneak preview will be sent to the client within one week of the wedding, wherever possible this will be sent within 48 hours. The remainder of the images will be sent between 8-12 weeks later. Whilst every reasonable effort shall be made to keep any delivery date, time of delivery shall not be of the essence.
Complaints - Any complaints should first be raised by the Client with "Littles and Loves Photography in writing no later than 21 days from the date of receipt of images.
