Legalities
On overview of policies regarding your elopement.
Deposit *
The client has paid a non-refundable deposit of $150 that is to be credited to the final cost of photography. The deposit paid will serve as a retainer for the above mentioned date. The client also agrees to have the total balance paid IN FULL by 7 days before the wedding. If the amounts are not paid on time, the client understands that fees / cancellation of services could occur. The client also agrees that if the wedding date is cancelled or moved without at least 2 months notice, the photographer reserves the right to cancel all agreed upon services and not issue a refund of the current paid amount.
Provision of Services *
The Photographer shall be the exclusive photographer. It is understood that no other photographer may be appointed at the wedding while the Photographer is working. Guests, family and friends may photograph the wedding, as long as they do not interfere with the Photographers duties. The Photographer limits any liability for the loss, damage or failure to produce photographs taken during the session. The Photographer reserves the right to use photographs from your session for advertising, display, website promotion, bridal shows, photographic contests, publications, or any other purposes chosen by the Photographer. The Photographer shall not be held responsible for lack of service due to late arrival of wedding guests or the non-performance of the wedding coordinator. The photographer is also not liable for damage to equipment such as memory cards, cameras, flashes or acts of God. If the Photographer is unable to provider his/her photographic services, then a suitable replacement photographer will be provided to the Client at no additional cost. An ordering appointment of approximately 1.5 hours is to be scheduled 2-3 weeks after the Clients session. Viewing of images will be available in an online gallery for approximately 6 months following the Clients session. Images downloaded from viewing gallery will be for personal use only. The client has 6 months from the gallery publish date to order any and all products. albums, prints, frames, etc. After 6 months time, a $250 archive retrieval fee will be posted in order to order any images. Images will be ordered from the studio on receipt of payment.
Services Provided *
The Photographer shall be the exclusive photographer. It is understood that no other photographer may be appointed at the wedding while the Photographer is working. Guests, family and friends may photograph the wedding, as long as they do not interfere with the Photographers duties. The Photographer limits any liability for the loss, damage or failure to produce photographs taken during the session due to equipment failure, acts of god or unforeseeable circumstances. The Photographer reserves the right to use photographs from your session for advertising, display, website promotion, bridal shows, photographic contests, publications, or any other purposes chosen by the Photographer.

Images will be ordered from the studio on receipt of payment.
Satisfaction & Accuracy *
The client agrees that the work delivered will be of a similar style and caliber to those photographs on our Facebook page, instagram and website, and that the photographer will have complete creative control during the photographs and in post-processing. The images will be delivered in JPEG format with a mix of color and black and white images, deemed appropriate by the photographer. No re-editing will be done after the final edited copies are presented to the client.
Client Use *
The client shall only use the photographic prints, including digital files,in accordance with the permissions within this contract. The client's prints are for personal use only and shall not be submitted to contests or reproduced for commercial use without written approval by the photographer. Additional prints and/or digital files may be purchased between third parties and the Photographer with the permission of the client. If the photographer provides a digital file print release,the client must act in accordance with the release.
Cancellation Policy *
If the client cancels services three months or earlier before the session, they are entitled to a 50% refund of current payments, excluding the non-refundable deposit amount. If the client cancels within 3 months or under to the date of the event, they are not entitled to any refund whatsoever. By this point, gear has been rented and money has been paid towards the completion of the event and the option for me to reschedule your date is severely limited, resulting in an irreconcilable loss of profits.
Social Media *
The client may share web/blog post links and social media albums through the use of the share functions and direct links. The client shall not copy,download,screen shot, or capture the photographs in any other fashion. If such actions the photographer reserves the rights to request the photo(s) be removed as they would no longer be accurate representations of the photographers work. When uploading to a Facebook or Instagram social media the client shall "tag" the photographers business in the album or photo of the uploaded file. (unless the print release were purchased in which case they must remain unaltered but do not have to be tagged.) There shall be no filter or any other kind of image manipulation added to the photo, as it would then be an incorrect representation of the artists work and potentially reflect poorly on the professional.
Retention of Delivered Files. *
Once the JPEG files are delivered to the client,it is the client's sole responsibility to protect and retain their images for the future. It is highly recommended that the digital files or USB drives be duplicated and stored in multiple locations that are cool and dry. (Technology can be fickle. One of the best ways to ensure the client's images will last for generations is for the clients to print them.) If the client requires old files to be duplicated by the photographer, and they are still within the photographer's possession, a restocking fee may be applied. The photographer only guarantees that the photographs will be available for up to six months from the delivery of the online gallery. After the six month mark the photographer no longer guarantees that the photographs will be available.
Online Gallery *
The photographer shall make gallery digitals available through an online gallery proofing website. These proofs shall be available to the client within the agreed upon time of approximately 2-6 weeks. After the online gallery is delivered it will be open for 6 months. If the client requests to extend or reopen the proofing gallery, a $150 fee will be charged. Clients will be able to view the photos to choose prints from or to order a USB thumb drive. Photographer is not responsible for lost images once given to the client.
