COPYRIGHTS - I agree that unless otherwise specifically agreed herein, in writing, The Studio has sole and exclusive rights to hold all negative materials and/or digital images and make additional reproductions for client. The Studio has sole and exclusive ownership of copyright for all or any part of this Order. All images, film or digital, remain the property of The Studio unless purchased or included herein. All images, film or digital, will be kept for one year from date of the wedding indicated in this contract. It is the client’s responsibility to insure that their order is completed to their satisfaction prior to that date. It is client’s responsibility to purchase images, film or digital, prior to that date, if they so desire. No notice will be given prior to the disposal of images, film or digital although the photographer may offer a reduced buyout option at the time of disposal. *
LIABILITY OF STUDIO - I agree that in the event that this order can not be completed due to an act of God, strikes, or other labor disturbances, severe weather conditions of any type, riots or civil disturbances; action or regulation by any local, State or Federal governmental unit or agency, any event considered a “force majeure”, sickness of the photographer or other event or act outside the control of The Studio, The Studio’s liability to the client shall be limited to return of client’s retainer. The client is specifically put on notice and is hereby notified and agrees that photography is not an exact science and that on certain occasions, film or other photographic material may be proven to be defective. The aforesigned hereby agrees that in the event that photographs taken prove to be defective or in the event that certain photographs don’t come out, or in the event that the total order is undeliverable because of defect in materials, equipment and/or chemicals, that the liability of The Studio will be strictly limited to the return of the deposit paid pursuant to this contract. The aforesigned hereby specifically waives any claims for negligence, breach of warranty, mental harm or distress due to the failure of the photographs to be produced because of any defective materials, equipment or procedures. Failure of The Studio to take any or produce any specific photograph shall not be a reason or cause for the Client to make claim for such missing photography, as long as sufficient photographs have been taken to cover the amount of the photographic order pursuant to this contract. The Studio shall determine professional requirements in regard to equipment and its placement, lighting, and the mechanical requirements. If restrictions are placed in this regard by the client, or outside parties such as a video person or service, church or other facility, or if there are delays caused due to client and/or family and friends being late or unavailable to be photographed per agreed times in writing, it is understood that The Studio can not be responsible for inferior results or missed photographs. *
MISCELLANEOUS - I agree that all warranties on any and all materials are the sole responsibility of the original manufacturer of these materials. No other warranties are expressed or implied otherwise. Since color dyes may change in time, photographs will not be replaced or otherwise warranted against any change in color. The Studio uses their best efforts to reasonably retouch photographs taken pursuant to this contract, but in the event there are blemished or defects due to improper backgrounds, improper clothing, clothing worn too tightly, improper fitting of suits, and/or the closing of eyes by various parties, these are matters beyond the control of The Studio and The Studio reserves the right in each and every instance to decide whether or not it is practical to use retouching. There will be an additional charge for special corrective work, if corrections are possible. In the event the photographers are required to be on location over four hours, facilities will be provided for refreshment and rest period at the client’s expense. If not provided, the photographers reserve the right to do so off the location for up to ½ hour break. (This break time is not billed to Client) Travel and labor expenses will be added for events outside our normal coverage area (50 miles round trip). Additional charges for travel may be added depending on current gasoline prices, or other circumstances beyond our control. Reprint and album orders are due no later than 30 days from receipt of originals (proofs) to ensure an approximate due date of eight (8) weeks. Orders received after the 30 days may take up to six (6) months to process, especially during peak seasonal periods. If client requests overtime, additional originals become part of the contract at our current rate per this contract, without additional written authorization. It is the client’s responsibility to maintain current phone number and address information with Studio. Reprint orders, per this contract, must be placed within one (1) year of affair date. After the 1 year mark, Strike a Pose by LT will no longer be responsible to keep the full resolution digital negatives on hand. No refunds will be given for unused photography orders. It is the Client’s responsibility to place contract and/or additional orders timely. Reprint orders placed over 30 days from receipt of originals are subject to time delays, as needed. All contract labor time is continuous from start time unless otherwise specified in writing. Studio shall not be responsible for orders not claimed by Client 30 days after the date of completion. All provisions of this contract shall be binding and in full force and effect as to any subsequent orders for additional photographs or services. Shipping or mailing of any photographs outside of the Greater City of Sudbury at the client’s request, will be done so at the client’s own risk and additional fees must be prepaid. The Studio will not be responsible for delays, loss, or damages incurred while in transit of any part of this contract. In the event that this order cannot be completed due to any cause not described in any section of this contract, the Studio’s liability to client shall be limited to the refund of deposits received as set forth herein. The Studio is hereby retained as the sole and exclusive photographer at this affair. Only terms written herein are binding upon either party. No verbal statement will be accepted as a part of this contract. This contract is binding upon all parties successors, and may only be altered in writing. All signed wedding agreements require a 1/3 of the total wedding package including 1/3 of the HST non-refundable retainer. The remaining balance is subject to the terms and conditions described within. *
Thank you! We will review the contract and sign it and send you copy of the contract with the photographer's signature. Congrats!
