Terms and Conditions – Photography

Please read carefully and submit the form below

By paying your deposit and submitting the online form below, you acknowledge and agree to all of the following terms and conditions.

A. Fees:
The client agrees to pay Ebony Blush Photography a non-refundable retainer of 20% of the package total within 5 business days of their inquiry to secure the date and time.
The balance is due no later than 28 business days before your wedding.
The fee covers the time and talent of the photographer/ videographer, basic retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer.
Videography: The fee includes capture time, clip production and music composition. Trailer/Story Clips are final and are unable to be changed.
Additional editing may be available at additional expense to be determined by photographer/ videographer.
Additional prints or digital images and clips may be available for purchase.

B. Location Costs & Fees:
If there are any costs/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. The photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. (example: Kings Park requires a fee of $100 per hour)

C. Rescheduling:
If an illness or serious situation prevents the wedding from taking place, a client may cancel their booking, if a minimum of 3 business days is given. If notice is given, all monies paid will be refunded, less the 20% retainer.
Should the client fail to give notice, or decide to cancel on the basis of a change of mind, the total payment is forfeited and will not be refunded. Ebony Blush Photography reserves the right to withdraw their services due to serious illness, war, insurrection, strikes, walk-outs, riots, fire, acts of God, including adverse weather conditions and earthquakes, shortages or unavailability of labour or materials, laws or governmental restrictions which conflict with the terms of this Agreement, or any other matter beyond the reasonable control of Zoe Clark / Ebony Blush Photography. In this event, the client may have the option of another photographer at short notice or a complete refund. By signing below you agree to these terms and understand that no further damages or reimbursement can be claimed under these circumstances.

D. Re-shoots / Refunds:
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Refunds will only be given if Ebony Blush Photography is at fault or is unable to attend without notice.

E. Archive:
Ebony Blush Photography is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond their control. If a client loses their copy of their images, a second USB may be provided for a 5% fee, based on the package pricing.
A customized USB requires an additional $30 fee.
The Client and Ebony Blush Photography recognize it is extremely difficult and impractical to ascertain the extent of Client’s actual damage in the event of a breach on the part of Ebony Blush Photography.
Therefore, the parties agree that in the event of any breach arising from the negligence or other unintentional conduct of Ebony Blush Photography, including, without limitation, any damage to or loss of any videotape footage or photographs, Client shall be entitled to the following: IN THE EVENT OF DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF ANY VIDEOTAPE FOOTAGE OR PHOTOGRAPHS: A percentage reduction in the price of the video & photo package, based upon the amount of actual tape-time which has been damaged, lost or not captured. The client would then receive the final product, containing the footage & photographs from the Event, which was captured, not lost or damaged. *In the unlikely event that all images may become corrupt or are destroyed, liability is limited to a refund of all monies paid, and no further remuneration.

F. Payment
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received. If the client has arranged a payment plan, the order will be placed after the final payment has been received.

G. Damage:
The Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits and or video footage after delivery to the client, including damage caused during transit by Australia Post. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.

H. Requirements
Coverage packages beyond 5 hours require a meal break. These are usually taken while guests are eating, in order to avoid missing any details from your day.
Please arrange a meal to be provided for the videographer/photographer/photographers, as well as acess to water and coffee.
Meals preferences: for Zoe, Dairy Free Pescatarian or Vegan option.

Details to be arranged between the client and the photographer prior to the wedding.
All coverage packages have a finishing time of  no later than 9:30 pm (unless agreed) – If your event will exceed this time frame, a surcharge may apply.
It is encouraged that your first dance and cutting of the cake are before 9:30 pm, to avoid missing these moments.

I. Limitations
Certain locations may have restrictions as to where a photographer/ videographer can stand, or have strict policies preventing flash photography, tripods etc.
The client understands that this may limit their ability to provide the coverage that may have been desired.

Laser Lights – Zoe, as well as all other team members refuse shoot in situations where laser lights are used, due to the likelihood of camera sensor damage.
This will ruin camera equipment and any images taken.
It’s the clients responsibility to ensure the event is laser light free and understands the photographer cannot perform the service agreed.
No photography will occur whilst Laser lights are operational.
This can be discussed with your DJ.
