Booking Agreement

Please carefully read through each of the terms and conditions before checking the box to acknowledge your agreement.

Retainer and Payment: Client shall reserve the time and date of services by acknowledging agreement with this contract along with a deposit equal to 50% of the total photography fee. No date is reserved until the contract and deposit are received. The balance due for the photography services must be paid in full no less than 30 days before the event date. In the event Client fails to remit payment as specified, the Photographer shall have the right to immediately terminate this Agreement with no further obligation, retain any monies already paid, and not attend this event. 

Cancellation: If for any reason Client cancels this contract before the wedding date, the deposit will be refunded, minus a $200 administrative fee, provided the cancellation is made at least 30 days prior to the wedding date. If Client fails to supply written cancellation as specified before the wedding date or cancels within 30 days of the wedding date, the deposit will become non-refundable.

Reschedule: In the event that Client reschedules the wedding and Photographer is able to rebook the original wedding date, Client will receive credit for all monies already paid. A new contract may be required. The new package price will reflect pricing in effect when the date change occurs. In the event that Client reschedules the wedding and Photographer is not able to rebook the original wedding date, the deposit will be refunded, minus a $200 administrative fee, provided written cancellation is received at least 60 days prior of the original wedding date.  If cancellation or rescheduling occurs within 30 days of the original wedding date and Photographer is not able to rebook, the deposit will become non-refundable.

Liability: If Photographer is unable to perform any or all of the duties herein for any reason, including but not limited to, fire, transportation problems, acts of God, accident, illness, or technical problems, and if she cannot provide another competent professional, all money received by Photographer will be returned to Client, and Photographer shall have no further liability with respect to this agreement. This limitation of liability also applies to any loss/damage of photographs or failure to deliver photographs for any reason. Liability for a partial loss of photographs shall be pro-rated based on the percentage of total. The sole remedy for any actions or claims shall be limited to a refund whose total amount cannot exceed the total monies paid by Client under this Agreement during the time preceding the date on which such liability arises. 

Photo USB drives: Upon receipt of a photo USB drive, Client accepts all responsibility for archiving and protecting the photographs. Photographer does not permanently archive image files. Photographer is not responsible for the lifespan of any digital media provided or for any future changes in digital technology or media readers that might result in an inability to read discs provided. It is Client's responsibility to make sure that digital files are copied to new media as required. 

Responsibilities: Wedding guests may take photos, but it is the responsibility of Client to prevent family and friends from interfering with Photographer's duties. Photographer is not responsible for compromised coverage due to causes beyond her control such as other people's camera or flash, the lateness of the bride, groom, family members and bridal party members or other principles, weather conditions, schedule complications, rendering of decorations, or restrictions of the venues or officiate. Photographer is not responsible for existing backgrounds or lighting conditions which may negatively impact or restrict the photography coverage. Notification of any changes in schedule or location must be made in a timely manner. Changes can be made by email, or by phone with a follow-up email for documentation.

Coverage: Photographer will provide coverage for the dates, locations and continuous hours specified in this Agreement. Additional travel or coverage hours may be added by agreement on the wedding day and must be paid in full before any photos or products are released to the Client. Every reasonable effort will be made to take requested pictures, but no specific pose or photograph can be promised. Any lists supplied will be used for organizational purposes only. Images determined by the photographer to be substandard or duplicated may be edited out. The Photographer will use her professional judgment and sole discretion to select which photos to deliver. Such selection shall constitute all images that will be made available to Client. 

Image Processing/Printing: Unless agreed upon prior to any editing work, photo USB drives may contain a mixture of colour and black & white.  An alternately colored version of a photo may be requested by Client, and completed at Photographer's discretion. Limited colour correction and/or retouching are included at Photographer's discretion. Client may request further changes for an additional charge. For best results, clients with the high-resolution files should order their prints through a reputable lab.  Photographer is not responsible for any substandard prints resulting from Client using non-reputable printing labs.
