Wedding Photography Terms and Conditions In the following conditions “the photographer(s)” shall mean Craig Hayes trading as Craig Hayes Photography, or, subject to condition 6 below, any photographers appointed by Craig Hayes Photography. “The Client(s)” shall be those whose name appears on the booking form. If the client(s) arrange for a third party to meet the costs the term and conditions remains with the client(s). The due performance of the terms is subject to the conditions below. These cannot be varied in any way by the client(s) unless such conditions are expressly agreed by the photographer(s) in writing.

1. Copyright: The Copyright Designs and Patents Acts assign the copyright of the images to the photographer(s). It is therefore contrary to the Acts, and illegal, to copy, or allow to be copied, by any means photographic, by computer, or internet or otherwise, by any person or machine other than by the photographer(s) or their appointed agents. You are an appointed agent and as such you have an unlimited license to print, share and use as you wish.

2. Display: The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer(s) to display any photographs and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, sample albums and prints, venue and other vendor samples, and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to the client(s). Images placed in password protected galleries within the website are not available to the general public in the normal course of events. However, it is impossible to prevent determined persons from accessing these galleries.

3. Style and Editing: a) The client hereby acknowledges that they are familiar with the photographer(s) portfolio and are requesting services with knowledge of their style; that the work is constantly evolving; that the services are of unique and artistic nature; that the photos may be different from photographs taken by the photographer(s) in the past; and that in creating the photos, the photographer(s) shall use their personal artistic judgment to create images consistent with their personal vision of the event. b) EDITING: the photographer(s) will provide a pleasing colour balance and enhance the images as they see fit, but cannot guarantee exact colour matching. Owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially man-made fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record on film/digital media the exact colour of materials as seen by the human eye.

4. License, Coverage and Reproduction: a) The Photographer(s) shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. b) Photographs taken during the course of the event will be at the discretion of the photographer(s) although every effort will be made to comply with The Client(s) requirements. c) The photographer(s) shall endeavour to photograph all individuals as requested by the client(s) at some point, but no responsibility will be taken by the photographer(s) on the occasion of leaving somebody out. d) For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer(s) movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer(s) is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer(s) choice and the photographer(s) cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case. The photographing of parts or even all of the ceremony may be restricted or prohibited. e) For a wedding or other event booking, the photographer(s) shall endeavour to capture all the moments throughout the day as they occur. However, because of the fluid nature of the event, some moments might not be recorded, or not recorded for logistical reasons. f) Please note that any alterations made to the booking by the client(s) once details have been confirmed may only be made at the discretion of the photographer(s) and in some circumstances (such as the change of ceremony date for a wedding) the photographer(s) may be unable to accommodate these alterations due to a conflict of commitments. Under these circumstances, the photographer(s) are not liable to compensate the client(s) in any way whatsoever. g) Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer(s) will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure, either at the shooting or processing stage.

5. Force Majeure: a) The due performance of the terms and condition is subject to alteration or cancellation by the photographer(s) owing to any cause beyond their reasonable control (e.g sudden illness/injury/victim of crime, flooding). b) The photographer(s) may contact other photographers in the event that they are not able to attend your booking due to clause 7a). However, it may prove difficult or impossible to find a skilled replacement photographer at short notice or at the same price. c) In the event of cancellation by the photographer(s), or in the unlikely event of total photographic failure (although re-shoots may be arranged if practicable) – the photographer(s) will not be responsible for costs in order to stage re-shoots. The photographer(s) liability shall be limited to a full refund of any deposits and fees paid.

6. Liability for Digital Files and Products: a) The digital files shall remain the property of the photographer(s) and shall be kept indefinitely from the wedding date at one site. b) Should digital files be lost, damaged or destroyed the photographer(s) liability shall be limited to a refund of fees paid, but shall not include a refund for any goods already supplied or capable of supply at a quality deemed acceptable by the photographer. No refund will be due for any digital files lost, damaged, or destroyed after 12 months from the date of the wedding.
