PAYMENT AGREEMENTS (1.2)

An initial £200 deposit to secure the elopement date, made payable at time of booking. This £200 is non-refundable or transferrable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation.

Terms and Conditions must be read and agreed before the elopement date otherwise the photographer holds the rights not to attend.

Cancellation less that 12 weeks before the date of the elopement will require payment in full. All cancellations must be in writing. The cancellation conditions above will apply for postponed elopements if the photographer is not able to re-schedule for the new date and time. The fee for postponed elopements is subject to change.

If payment has been made in full at any stage before the elopement it is non-refundable.

PHOTOGRAPHY PACKAGES

The client at any time is unable to view the RAW unedited version of the images taken on the elopement day. The client will receive images after they have been edited. It is the bride and grooms responsibility to keep copies of their elopement photos. Adam and Grace keep copies for up to 6 months after the elopement date. It is not the photographers responsibility to keep copies of the images.

All of Adam and Grace couples (both before and after the elopement) are able to receive £100 off any family, newborn, engagement or portrait photo session (normal price £300). This cannot be redeemed along side any other promotion and can only be used by the bride and groom. This promotion may be subject to change. It is the couples responsibility to arrange a date that is most suitable to them and the photographer. Please note there may be no availability during peek seasons and its important to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Prices for photo sessions can vary each year, please get in touch for pricing for the year you would like your photo session to take place.

RETOUCHING

All images will be adjusted for exposure, brightness, contrast and sharpness etc. The photographers judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the client shall be deemed correct. The photographer will edit the images to what they feel is an acceptable high standard. Extra retouching, digital manipulation artist finishing and changes from b&w to colour or colour to b&w is available to the client at additional cost. Please note all the images you find on our website to date is exactly what we have sent to the clients and have all been edited to the standard we feel is acceptable.

COPYRIGHT

The entire copyright of the photographs is retained by the photographer at all times throughout the world. Where a disc/usb of photographs has been provided to the bride and groom as part of their elopement collection, these photographs are able to be printed and displayed online for personal use but not commercial use.

The photographer retains the right in all cases to use the photographs in any manner at any given time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting her work unless otherwise discussed and agreed with the client.

Sneak Peeks and sharing images on social media are part of Adam and Grace weddings/ elopements. If this is something the client is not keen on its important to inform the photographer before the elopement date.

ELOPEMENTS

The coverage for elopement range between full day coverage (getting ready to call to first 30 minutes at meal venue) to portrait only sessions. Hairdressers and make-up salons are excluded in this. If you have booked in for morning coverage the photographer will arrive approx. 1 hour prior to the couple leaving for the ceremony. Main coverage includes bride getting ready. Groom must be getting ready within 10 miles of bride if the couple would like both covered. It is not the photographers responsibility to capture hair and make up applications, if the bride/groom would like a particular scene captured it is their responsibility to ensure its possible for the photographer to photograph it within the hour before the bride leaves for the service otherwise there is the option to pay for extra morning coverage if this is something the couple feels they would like.

An elopement time form will be provided a few weeks before the date of the wedding to ensure we have all the correct times, addresses and info needed.

During the ceremony at certain times the photographers movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge and can even be restricted by a booked videographer. Therefor from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographers choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.

Due to the extent of differences in clients preferences it is not the photographers responsibility to take any desired people in photographs. To keep to the timescale of the day and so that the photographer is able to stay true to the documentary style of their work, formal group shots are kept to a bare minimum and the photographer works with immediate family only. Brothers, sisters, their parents and children, the bride and grooms mum and dad and grandparents, provided they are all there at the time family photos are being taken. Provided there is enough time before the clients are called for their meal the clients are able to use this time to mingle with guests or for more formal line ups again only as long as there is enough time.

It is important for the client to understand that they book the photographer based on their photography work and creative style. It is not possible for the photographer to recreate another photographers work or ideas through selected images by the client.

IMAGE SIZE, COLOUR, STYLE AND COMPOSITION

All image sizes are approximate. The photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching. It is sometimes not possible to record on camera or in print the exact colour as seen by the human eye. There is no right to reject on the bases of style or composition. Photography editing styles may be subject to change.

ATTENDANCE

If for any reason the photographer is unable to complete the coverage, the photographer reserves the right to appoint another photographer to attend on his/her behalf to undertake the photography in their place. Another shooter may also be called in to shoot in place of either Adam or Grace should something happen that either one is not able to shoot the elopement.
