  1. We authorise the Studio to arrange our photography session or wedding photography, in accordance with the details discussed.

  2. We have received, read and understand the Studio’s price list, which has been confirmed, on payment of the deposit/booking fee. We agree that payment of the initial deposit/booking fee confirms the booking with the Studio as per your quote.

  3. We agree to pay the full balance at least two weeks prior to the session. Failure to do so gives the Studio the right to refuse to carry out the photographic services.

  4. The booking of and any additional costs incurred for booking venues, photography locations etc are our responsibility. If these are not paid for separately, the Studio will invoice us for these and such invoice must be paid in advance. If the invoice is not paid for prior to commencement of the photographic services, photographic coverage may be reduced.

  5. If the photographers are required to remain after the meal, two meals will be provided by us. We are satisfied that the details attached are correct and will confirm the details prior to the session. If necessary we agree to advise the hairdressers and makeup artists, the hire cars and the caterers of all the relevant times, details and locations and to coordinate their services. The details and times accompanying this agreement form part of this agreement and we agree to make every effort to co-operate in order for the Studio to fulfil its contracted photographic duty. We acknowledge the Studio will not accept responsibility for the extent of the photographic coverage and fulfilment of the photographic services in accordance with the details herein if these details are incorrect or if we choose not to follow the agreed schedule

  6. To avoid disruption to the photographic coverage and to allow the Studio to fulfil its contracted duty, other photography by family and friends will be at the discretion of the Studio’s photographer.

  7. We accept the responsibility to contact the Studio, at least two weeks prior to Wedding, to confirm details are correct and there are no alterations.

  8. We agree to immediately advise the Studio in writing of any alterations in the details listed here including postponement or cancellation of the wedding.

  9. In the event of cancellation of the wedding we agree that the deposit/booking fee will be forfeited, but that the Studio may allow a claim towards other photography by the Studio within twelve (12) months of the date of this order at the sole discretion of the Studio.

  10. We agree the Copyright in all photographs is owned by the Studio. We give permission to the Studio to use any image of our Wedding for industry competitions and as required for subsequent usage and for reasonable general promotional advertising for the Studio. The usage for any other purpose is to be renegotiated between the parties and requires specific permission.

  11. We understand that these photographs are only to be used as agreed and may not be copied or reproduced unless written approval had been granted by the Studio.

  12. The digital files remain the property of the Studio and will be kept on file a period of five years. We recognise that materials & technology change constantly so we need to place our required order as soon as possible to obtain the optimum quality.

  13. I acknowledge and agree that the Studio has no control over the environment in which the photographs are kept and that colour photographs, in common with all sensitised material and colour dyes, have limited life expectancy which is further reduced when exposed to strong and prolonged sunlight, heat or fluorescent light sources. Photographs will last longer if displayed under good lighting conditions.

  14.  It is noted that your starter album of 10 spreads ( if included in your package) will not complete your entire wedding day story. A complete album of 40 spreads will always be designed to show your complete wedding day story. Average album sizes are 25-40 spreads. You are entitled to 2 rounds of changes to the initial design. Album designs can take up to 8 weeks for the initial design year-round.

  15. Should your nominated photographer not be available for any reason, the Studio will notify the Client of the change as soon as it is known and provide another photographer with equivalent skills or provide a refund, whichever is the Client’s choice.

  16. The photographs made by the Studio are manufactured with the finest materials currently available. However, colour photographs, in common with all sensitised material and colour dyes, have limited life expectancy which is further reduced when exposed to strong and prolonged sunlight, heat or fluorescent light sources. If in your opinion any photograph made by the Studio has lost its original colour, the Studio may, at its discretion, replace the photograph for fifty per cent of the current selling price. The original photograph must be returned and the reprinting charge paid in advance. This warranty will be valid for as long as the Studio has its possession the original negative/s in a printable condition.

  17. The Studio shall carry out this assignment with due and professional diligence. Elements beyond the Studio’s control include faulty material, equipment failure, damaged and exposed film, loss of film/photos/ negatives/digital files in transit between the Studio and professional laboratories employed by the Studio, unforeseen loss or damage to film, negatives/ digital files and proofs during processing and developing either by the Studio or professional laboratories employed by the Studio (that is not the fault of the Studio), industrial disputes, civil disturbances, or weather conditions which may inhibit or prevent the Studio completing in whole or in part this assignment. In this case the Studio shall not be liable for its complete performance of the assignment. It is agreed that the liability of the Studio shall be limited to be a refund of any money paid under this agreement which shall be in full & final satisfaction of any damage or loss suffered.
