The photographer will not be held responsible if guests with mobile phone cameras or any other photographic device get in the way of the photographer during crucial shots. However, the photographer and/or assistant will make every effort to see that this doesn’t happen.
Due to a variety of lighting conditions and the limitations of digital sensors, some colours may alter throughout a set of photographs.
Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure.
All standard wedding packages and additional goods specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling on the date of booking. Goods not specified on the booking form are supplied at the prices ruling at the time of receipt of the order.

In the event of cancellation by the photographer, or in the very unlikely event of total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid.
All digital negatives (RAW computer files) remain the property of the photographer. On occasion, the photographer may supply a copy of the edited digital negatives to the client(s) for their own non-commercial use.

The client(s) are hereby advised to take out an appropriate insurance policy to cover any expenses incurred in the event of cancellation.
If the client requires an alternative date and if the photographer is able to re-book the date with an equivalent booking, then the cancellation fee will be reduced to the booking fee.
