Terms & Conditions

Deposit

The Deposit secures the time and services of Fiona Stone Photography for the wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. Cancellation Less than 6 months before the wedding will incur half the agreed fee. Cancellation less than 12 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full. All cancellations must be in writing. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time.

Payments

Following payment of the non refundable deposit the balance of fees due are to be paid 30 days prior to your wedding.

Display

The Photographer/s may display any photographs included in this contract in his/her, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or slide shows. I do however respect the privacy of clients and would ask permission.

Images

All image sizes are nominal. The Photographer/s 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 fibers. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye.

Image Enhancement

All images supplied on disc and are edited and enhanced in PS5. I will not alter the look of a person or change shape and features.

With regard to your printing you will have FULL permission to print.

License

The Photographer/s shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgment 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.

Blinking
