Terms and Conditions
It is mutually agreed that the following terms of agreement form an integral part of this contract and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless accepted by both parties in writing.
BALANCE PAYMENT: The balance is to be paid not later than 28 days prior to the wedding day. Payment for additional album photographs, prints & frames is made after the wedding at the time of ordering.
CREATIVE LICENCE: Reids Photography shall be granted creative and artistic license in relation to the choice of locations and poses used. Stuart’s judgement on photographic style and the number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct. Stuart will do his best to honour requested photographs but does not undertake to guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement. Due to the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
VIEWING: An online proof will be available on-line via www.reidsphotography.co.uk within 21 days of the wedding. You will be sent an email with the URL and password for your online gallery.
COPYRIGHT: The 1998 Copyright, Designs, and Patents Act assigns copyright to Reids Photography who reserve the right to use the images for advertising/display purposes. Our packages include a USB Drive of all images at high-resolution. The client has the right to make copies of and print from these image files for personal use and for the use of friends & family. Printing, copying or display of these files for commercial gain is not permitted.
EXCLUSIVITY: Stuart will be the sole professional (stills) photographer at the venue/s specified. I do however positively encourage family, friends, and other guests to take photographs throughout the day but may ask someone to stop for a short period if they are preventing me from obtaining my shots.
IMAGES: We will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectivness caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on digital the exact colour as seen by the human eye.
FORCE MAJEURE: In the unlikely event of total photographic failure, injury or sickness beyond Stuart’s control, his liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid. Your statutory rights are not affected. Stuart has full Public Liability, and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
CANCELLATION: The client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to the Reids Photography but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Should cancellation be received less than 30 days prior to the date of the ceremony, the client shall pay an additional amount so that the total paid by the client is equal to 75% of the contract value.
If Stuart has to cancel this contract for reasons beyond his control, (death, injury, sickness etc.), his liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid. Every effort will be made to find an alternative, qualified photographer.
Should the cancelled wedding turn out to be a postponement, then, subject to Stuart’s availability, all money paid may be applied to the new wedding date. In this case, the total fees chargeable shall be the fee which applies at that time.
PRIVACY: Stuart will store your name and wedding details on a private internal database. These details will not be made available to companies or individuals outside of Reids Photography. Should you wish to have your details removed from my database, please advise me in writing.
