terms and conditions
These terms and conditions explain your rights and responsibilities and also those of Steve and Tania Photography. "You" means the couple named as Bride and Groom on the booking form and "S&T" means Steve and Tania Photography. "Wedding" shall also refer to a civil partnership ceremony.
S&T agrees to supply wedding photography services to you in accordance with the wedding photography quote and options indicated on the booking form.
The deposit is payable by you at the time of booking. This will be set against the total fees payable by you. The balance of the quoted wedding photography cost must be paid no less than 30 days prior to the date of the wedding. If the balance is not paid by that date, S&T reserve the right to treat the contract as being cancelled by you, in which case the deposit will not be refunded and no further services will be performed.
S&T are appointed by you as the exclusive professional photographers for the wedding. Amateur photography by guests is permitted but you are responsible for ensuring that this does not interfere or conflict with the services S&T have agreed to provide.
While S&T will make every reasonable effort to take requested photography, you understand that a wedding is an uncontrolled event and S&T cannot guarantee that any particular requested photograph will be taken. S&T will not be held responsible for lack of coverage due to varieties of the weather, available light, scheduling changes or delays, punctuality of the wedding party and the cooperation or availability of any subjects including guests when called upon. Photographs will be taken against the available backgrounds. Please note that S&T cannot be expected to move objects or perform other cosmetic duties on location.
S&T reserve the right to edit the original images and be the final authority on the choice of images that are delivered to you as the final set. S&T will make your images available to you as soon as is reasonably practical after the wedding but cannot guarantee precise timings. Any prints and products must be ordered by you and your guests within 12 months of the wedding. S&T cannot guarantee being able to fulfil an order after this time. We recommend you backup your USB immediately. S&T will keep a copy for 12 months from the date of your wedding. You may order a copy during this time for a small fee.
Image File Ownership
All digital media relating to images taken at the event remain the property of S&T.
The copyright of all images created at the event, whether stored digitally or otherwise, remains the property of S&T.
You are obtaining photographs for personal use only and shall not sell copies for commercial use. You are granted unlimited reproduction rights of all final images except for commercial use.
You are granted the right to distribute the final images except for commercial use. The final images must not be adapted or modified in any way. S&T reserves the right to be identified as the creators of all final images and requires that attribution be included with all public distribution.
You grant S&T permission to use the images for display, advertising, portfolio, professional competition and review, or any self-promotion including wedding fairs, social media and the S&T website.
You may cancel the contract at any time by notice in writing. The deposit is not refundable.
If the date of the wedding is postponed, S&T may at their sole discretion agree not to treat the contract as being cancelled but to provide the services on the new date and transfer all payments made to the fees for that day.
In the unlikely event that S&T photographers are unable to attend for reasons beyond their control, such as death, injury or illness, every attempt will be made to arrange a suitable replacement. If this is not possible or you choose not to accept the offered alternative, then the contract will be considered cancelled and all payments made will be returned to you.
S&T take the utmost care with respect to the transportation, storage and back up of images. However, in the unlikely event that photographs are lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond S&T’s control, the contract will be considered cancelled and all payments made will be returned to you.
COVID-19 ADDENDUM - If the wedding is cancelled or postponed due to Covid-19 regulations beyond your control, all monies will be refunded, or held for a future date if preferred.
Limit of Liability
S&T will exercise the reasonable skill, care and judgement that you would expect of professional photographers but shall not be liable for events beyond their reasonable control nor for loss, which is indirect or consequential. Under no circumstances will S&T’s liability to you, whether for breach of contract, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise exceed the total amount that you have paid under this contract. If you wish to have additional cover you should consider taking out a wedding insurance policy.
You agree to be responsible for any injury, loss or damage caused by your guests to the people or equipment provided by S&T.
