Ten Foot Tall Photography – Wedding Photography
Terms and conditions of business
It is mutually agreed that the following terms form an integral part of the wedding photography contract and that no variation or modification shall be effective unless accepted by Ten Foot Tall Photography in writing.
Dates are reserved only when the booking fee is paid. This sum will apply towards the contract fee.
The balance of the payment for the services contracted for must be paid not later than one calendar month prior to the wedding. Payment for additional photographs and albums is made when these are ordered. Any bank charges incurred due to returned cheques will be debited to the client.
In the event of the Client cancelling a booking for wedding photography, Ten Foot Tall Photography, reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee in accordance with the following scale:
(i) £250, (the booking fee), if cancelled at any time after the 14 day cooling off period.
(ii) 50% of the agreed fee if cancelled less than 6 months prior to the wedding date.
(iii) 100% of the agreed fee if cancelled within 60 days of the wedding date.
Should the cancelled wedding turn out to be a postponement, then at our discretion and subject to availability, monies other than the booking fee may be applied to the new wedding.
WEATHER AND/OR DELAYS
Weather permitting the photographs will be taken as agreed. In the event of inclement weather the photographer, in co-operation with the client will make the necessary changes to the schedule and will do their best to produce coverage of the wedding within the time allocated to them. Similarly, when delays occur due to circumstances outside their control, we will stay on beyond the agreed time but will charge an additional fee for extra time involved.
We will do our best to honour requests for specific photographs subject to the following: weather and time permitting; availability and the co-operation of the person(s)concerned. Any list of specific shots provided by the customer (or representative of the customer) can only be accepted as a guide and not as a definitive list.
Ten Foot Tall Photography cannot be held responsible for the lack of coverage caused by the bride, bridegroom or other members of the wedding party not being ready on time, nor by restrictions placed on the photographer by officials of the church, register office or licenced marriage venues. The photographer does not guarantee any specific picture nor to include any specific background, location, props, or arrangement, although every effort will be make to interpret the client’s wishes. The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or reception site management. The client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the client’s responsibility. Ten Foot Tall Photography will offer technical recommendations only.
COLOUR MATCHING and SIZES
Owing to photo chromatic anomalies caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially in man-made fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record on camera the exact colour of materials as perceived by the human eye. When processing images, the photographer will endeavour to achieve a pleasing overall colour balance based on natural flesh tones. It is understood that some colours may not remain consistent throughout a set of photographs owing to variations in lighting conditions. It is also understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range within a subject. The colour balance of prints made at different times or in varying sizes may also be variable. Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that images may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor and that prints will not match images rendered on any particular computer monitor. Where images are made available for use on a DVD player reasonable steps are taken to ensure compatibility, but DVD discs may not play on all DVD players, particularly older models. All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to the discretion of the photographers.
All images required for the album must be supplied to the photographic studio (Ten Foot Tall Photography) with 3 months of the date of the wedding. Failure to do so could result in increased costs for the manufacture of the album. Any such costs after 3 months will be passed on to the client.
