The Photographer cannot be held responsible for lack of coverage caused by any member of the wedding party not being on time, or by Church, Register Office or Licensed Place imposing photography restrictions. The photographer does not guarantee to undertake any specific picture, group arrangement, background or location although he will strive to honour all photographs requested and agreed in advance. The photographer cannot be held responsible for weather disturbances affecting coverage although all efforts will be taken to provide agreed coverage in the time allocated to him.
All photographs are printed to produce pleasing skin tones. Some clothing shades can be extremely difficult to accurately reproduce. If colour matching is crucial the client should provide a swatch before processing takes place.
The Photographer retains the right in all cases to use the Photographs at any time and in any part of the world for the purposes of advertising or otherwise promoting his work.

This is included free of charge in all Wedding Services as a personal guarantee and to offer peace of mind to ensure you get the outdoor images you hope for. In instances where there a large distance to travel, between Keylight and the venue, basic travel expenses may be required. This may be the only additional cost to perform a ‘Weather Retro Shoot’
