These Terms & Conditions are specific to work undertaken by James L Morgan Wedding Photography. By paying your deposit you agree to be bound by the terms set out below.
Payment of 20% of the total invoice value is required immediately to confirm the booking.
This is not refundable.
Full payment is due 21 days prior to the wedding day
You are free to make partial payments as often as you like towards the balance, so long as the full payment is made by the due date.
When you make any payments towards your invoice please let me know so that I can flag that payment against your online invoice.
If you are taking other services such as a pre-wedding photo shoot, payment for those services is requested upon delivery of that service.
At our initial consultation, we will discuss the photos you expect me to take, however, in certain circumstances such as in a church there may be restrictions in place that prevent this.
Some venues impose restrictions on photography, even on the official photographer. It is understood by both parties that this is outside of my control.
I will make every reasonable effort to get the photos we agree, but I cannot be held responsible for any photos I am unable to take as a result of such restrictions.
Under normal circumstances I would expect to be able to get a selection of highlights delivered electronically to you within 5 days of the event, during busy times this may take up to 2 weeks.
The remaining photos will be delivered fully edited within 4 weeks of the wedding day or photo shoot.
I will provide the full-sized JPEG photos either by digital download or on a USB memory stick.
You are free to choose your method of delivery.
If you cancel more than 8 weeks prior to the day of the wedding or event then I will refund all payments made with the exception of the deposit.
If you cancel less than 8 weeks prior to the day of the booking then you will remain accountable for 50% of the total fee.
Force Majeure / Acts of God
I am part of a network of photographers, many of whom I would be confident in calling upon should I be unable to attend the wedding due to causes beyond my control such as sudden illness, injury, victim of crime etc.
I will make every effort to put you in touch with another photographer who can fulfil my agreed duties on the day.
I always make every effort to ensure all my equipment is in good working order and that I have backup equipment ready should there be any issues on the day.
Despite my best preparations there is still the possibility of equipment failure that will be beyond my control, I cannot be held responsible if moments are missed due to such a failure.
During a shoot or event I may offer direction to those being photographed.
I will make every effort to ensure these directions are sensible and considered but they should be undertaken at the personal risk of those taking the direction.
I cannot be held responsible for any injury or accidents caused as a result of my directions.
If you are not happy with the photos I have taken then please do contact me to discuss, however, I cannot offer a refund unless we both agree that I have not delivered what we agreed upon and that no other factors outside of my control prevented me from doing so.
If something prevents us from being able to complete the shoot as originally planned, but we agree to go ahead with the shoot anyway (see cancellation policy above) then I cannot be held responsible if the end result does not meet your original expectations.
Copyright Ownership & Usage
All digital negatives, i.e. the RAW image files taken on the day remain my intellectual property.
I (James Morgan) retain ownership of the copyright.
I grant you my permission to print and share the photos I send you freely.
If you are approached by any media outlet for the purposes of sharing your wedding photos then they will need to seek my permission to reproduce any photos that I have taken.
I will use some of the images from your wedding or photo shoot on my website, blog or social outlets for my own promotional purposes.
If you prefer that I do not use any or certain images from your wedding or shoot then please let me know.
From time to time I may send you emails to let you know about offers or special projects that you might be interested in.
These will always be from me and never a third party and I will never share your details with anyone else.
The emails will carry an ‘unsubscribe’ link so that you can easily opt-out of receiving these emails.
