Image and Reproduction

All print and presentation sizes quoted are approximate and subject to change at the discretion of the Photographer(s) and may be subject to slight variation. Whilst every effort will be made, the Photographer(s) cannot guarantee exact colour matching and is not held responsible for any colour variations which may occur due to light and location variations.

Copyright

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.

License

Dale Turner Photography 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 vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.

For Events involving a church ceremony or at certain other venues, the Photographer(s) movements are sometimes restricted by the minister or official in charge. Photographing of parts or even all of the ceremony or occasion may be restricted or prohibited, as may the use of artificial lighting. The Photographer(s) cannot accept responsibility for limited coverage in such circumstances.

Whilst the Photographer(s) shall endeavour to fulfil the Clients’ requirements, the Photographer(s) cannot be held responsible for non-availability of subjects or adverse conditions which may delay the progress of proceedings, preventing the coverage of certain specified shots.

Any alterations made to this Contract by the Clients once details have been confirmed may only be made at the discretion of Dale Turner Photography and should be agreed in writing. Where the Photographer(s) is unable to accommodate alternative arrangements (such as change of ceremony date and or venue) the Photographer(s) are not liable to compensate the Client(s) in any way whatsoever.

Limitation of Liability

In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.

Cancellation

The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to Dale Turner Photography but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 182 days before your wedding date or 7 days before the photo shoot date will result in the payment in full.
