MAIRI GRANT PHOTOGRAPHY
TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF CONTRACT
FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES
In the following terms and conditions “the photographer” shall mean Mairi Grant trading as Mairi Grant Photography. “The client(s)” shall be those persons defined as bride and groom in the wedding booking. It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.
Booking Fee / Deposit Payments.
A non-refundable booking fee of 25% or a mutually agreed amount as well as full acceptance of the terms and conditions as published on the photographer’s website secures the time and services of the Photographer for the wedding (On the date stated below) and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation. The booking fee will be deducted from the cost of the client’s chosen package when calculating the final balance due. Payment in full of the remaining balance will be due one calendar month before the wedding day. 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.
The details of the wedding arrangements are to be agreed beforehand in writing (email is acceptable). The Client shall notify the Photographer of any changes to these details in writing. The Photographer/s cannot be held liable for delays or disruption in their delivery of the service until any changes are received, and acknowledged in writing.
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 becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing.
The client(s) hereby allow(s) the photographer to display any photograph covered by this contract and to generally promote the business in advertising, brochures, magazine articles, websites, social media, sample albums etc.
All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s 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 fibres. Normally this is not an issue but it is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. 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 is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer’s choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.
All images will be adjusted for exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness and skin retouching. The Photographer’s judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the Client for preview shall be deemed correct. Further retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an option at extra cost.
The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgement regarding the locations/poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the unpredictability of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
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).
Third Party Printing
Mairi Grant Photography cannot accept any responsibility or liability for colour balance or quality of any Prints reproduced from the USB Memory Stick that we supply by Third Party Printers such as High Street photo processing shops.
Force Majeure or Act of God.
The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control. Although all equipment is checked regularly and steps are always taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the photographer will not be responsible for photographs that are not produced due to technical failure, nor can we be responsible for extreme weather events or issues caused by others on the wedding day.
In the very unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another professional photographer to attend your wedding on our behalf to undertake the wedding photography to his/her best ability.
Any directions issued to clients, their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said persons own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photographic shoot.
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.
This agreement shall be governed in accordance with the laws of Scotland.
