Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full. All cancellations must be in writing. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the Photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time.
Following payment of the Booking Fee, the balance of £ is due by . No Photographs, Albums, USB Memory Stick or Additions will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for Reprints, Digital Story Books, Acrylic Panels, Canvas Prints, or other Additions is to be
made in full at the time of ordering. Payment for additional Attendance Hours (part or whole at £150 per hour) where agreed, but which may not be known accurately at the time of Contract signing, must be made at the post wedding delivery meeting.
All prices are as at the time of signing the Contract, but in the event that changes arise that are outside the Photographer(s) control, for instance but not exclusively, the costs of Prints, Additions, Travel and Subsistence, then we will inform the Client of such within 21 days.
The Principal Photographer will be Kristida Stalionyte, and a 2nd Photographer of his choice will be provided at extra cost. They will be the ONLY stills Photographers allowed to attend for financial gain. (Videographers attendance by agreement.)
All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibbers. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. The number and style of photographs delivered to the client by the Photographer shall be deemed correct. Only edited files are given to clients.
The Photographer(s) shall be granted artistic licence in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The style and the number of photographs are also dependent on vagaries of the weather and the availability and willingness of the clients and their guests. The Photographer(s) will make their best effort to honour requested photographs but does not undertake any guarantee for any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.
The Photographer may display any photographs included in this contract in his studio, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, blogs, competitions, advertising or slide shows.
Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an optional extra.
Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically, electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the permission of The Photographer(s) in writing. Negatives/Digital files remain the property of The Photographer(s). .uk/copyright/p01_uk_copyright_law to read a Fact Sheet in layman's terms of how and where Copyright applies.

THIRD PARTY PRINTING

TRAVEL AND SUBSISTENCE
For attendance at venues travel costs at the rate of £0.50 per mile will be charged where appropriate for return trip. Where the wedding and ceremony require an overnight or longer stay, whether in the UK or abroad, then modest hotel and subsistence charges will be made.

The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to The Photographer(s), but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full.
Any complaints should first be raised by the Client with the Photographer in writing within 21 days from the date of receipt of images. In the unlikely event of an unresolved complaint the Client may request the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) to mediate but only on the basis that its decision shall be final and binding upon both parties.
