Limitation of Liability: If Photographer cannot perform this Agreement in whole or in part due to circumstances outside of the Parties’ control, such as sudden injury or acts of God, then Photographer will return all retainers and fees to the Client(s) but shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement.  This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of Photographer.  Photographer is not liable for any harm that results during any photoshoot or photography except to the extent required by law.  In no event shall photographer be liable for any emotional harm to the Client(s) or any other party resulting from Photographer’s services or lack thereof.

Inability to Perform: In the event of Photographer’s foreseeable illness, conflict or inability to perform, Client agrees that Photographer will assign and delegate performance and obligations of this Agreement to another professional photographer.  In the event that Photographer cannot perform or the wedding does not take place as anticipated by Client or as established in this Agreement, Photographer is not required to service a later wedding or reproduction.

Payment:  A retainer of 50 %  of the session fee / Wedding Collection is due at the signing of booking.   No photography will take place and no rights are granted until the retainer is paid in full.  Remaining balance is due at time of session or 14 days prior to wedding date.

No Refund: On signing of this agreement by both Parties hereto, Photographer will reserve the time agreed upon and will not make another reservation for the specific time frame.  For this reason, all deposits and fees are non-refundable even if the date is changed or if the wedding becomes cancelled for any reason.

Meal Break: Any wedding package booked over four hours requires a break of 1 hour that includes a free meal to be provided to Photographer and any assistant(s).  These meals must be pre-arranged with your reception vendor.  Most reception facilities offer vendor meals, which may or may not be different from guest meals.  Vendor meals must be served prior to or while guests are being served so Photographer may continue photographing immediately after dinner.

Photographer may reproduce, use and distribute the photos and images for any personal, business, marketing or studio purpose.
