Display: I/we the client hereby agree to allow the photographer to display any photographs covered by this contract in his studio, portfolio, internet site, display areas, exhibitions, competitions or slide shows. Should there be any difficulties with this please raise them prior to the wedding or event.
Photographs: All photograph sizes are nominal. The photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on film/digitally the exact colour of materials as seen by the human eye; therefore all colour balances are purely the perception of the individual.
Content: It is the responsibility of the Event Organiser or Bride and Groom to confirm to the photographer any specific photographs they require of individuals attending the event or wedding or details (e.g. flower arrangements table settings etc.).at the preview meeting. Whilst the photographer will make every effort to supply as comprehensive photographic coverage as possible he cannot guarantee to supply images of every event or wedding guest or associated detail. It is the responsibility of the Bride and Groom or Event Organiser to advise all their guests that the photographer, time permitting will make himself available to those guests who require a photograph of themselves either individually or with others.
Retouching: Any additional retouching and art finishing is available as an optional extra and will be charged at cost.
