4. Special Requests / Coverage
The Client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as the Photographer’s professional expertise determines. Every effort will be made to honour special request and instructions agreed in advance, provided time and weather permit and the availability and co-operation of the person/s concerned. Coverage will also be dictated by any restrictions imposed by the officials controlling the venue.

5. The Photographer
On occasions and without notice, it may be necessary for the Photographer originally specified to be substituted by another photographer, (e.g. due to ill health).
THE COMA PLAN
If absolutely the worst thing happens and the photographer is incapacitated your details are password stored on a system which is accessible only to one other associate. This person will be able to find you a replacement photographer.
The photographer will use her judgement in utilising basic retouching and image manipulation where appropriate. The Photographer reserves the right to deal with specific requirements (after delivery) as additional work. Unedited (RAW) work is never released and images should not be altered in any way (besides cropping for social media) as this reflect unfairly on the product delivered by the Photographer and is an unfair representation of their work which may be viewed by others.
The Photographer retains all copyright and reserves the right to use images for the promotion of herself or her business without recourse or compensation to the client. Photographs may be used on the photographers website and social media, in various marketing forms, portfolios and submitted to wedding blogs and or magazines with the consent of the clients. The clients are granted a license to use the images; you are free to print from the digital source images and or copy the disc as you desire.
8. Artistic Style
On it’s own behalf, and on behalf of the subject: The client acknowledges that it is familiar with the photographers portfolio and is requesting services with knowledge of the photographers style; that the photographers work is constantly evolving; that the Photographers services are of a unique and artistic nature; that the photographs may be different from the photographs taken by the photographer in the past; and that in creating the photographs the Photographer shall use her personal artistic judgement to create images consistent with her personal vision of the event, which may be different from the Clients and / or the Subjects vision of the event. Accordingly the Client acknowledges that the photographs shall not be subject to rejection on the basis of changed taste or aesthetic criterion.
9. Digital Files
Digital files will be provided as JPEG files on a USB or via an online gallery. The Photographer is not liable for any incompatibility that may be incurred in playing back such images due to the client’s equipment nor the visual presentation of prints obtained from such files owing to the incorrect use of colour profiling on the client’s or third party’s equipment. Copyright of the Photographer extends to such digital images though a licence is granted to the Bride & Groom (or client placing the order) to use them for their own personal use where no monetary gain is involved. Personal use includes, printing images from the file, copying files as a means of securing a backup, publishing images to a non commercial web site and the distribution of images for non monetary gain, eg to friends and family. The copying or distribution of files, images and discs outside of this licence is in contravention of copyright.
10. Web Site
Images from the event will be made available on the Photographer’s gallery hosting site for at least 3 months following the date of the ceremony at no extra cost to the client. The Photographer however, will not be liable for any disruption that may result from the unavailability of the web services.
