The Reservation Deposit is to be paid at time of signing the contract. The Reservation Deposit is applied towards the contracted wedding photography package.

James Geen Photography will make every effort to secure a replacement photographer of the same professional standing and ability able and/or willing to provide a similar package as chosen in this contract at the same/similar tariff. If such a situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found, responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received.
James Geen Photography takes the utmost care with respect to exposure, transportation and processing of photographs. However, in the unlikely event of the Client’s photographs being lost, stolen or destroyed for reasons within or beyond James Geen Photography's control, the latter’s liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event package, together with the reasonable costs of re- staging photographs of the couple and their families at a later date.
The Photographer will document the events in a candid manner and take formal portraits as necessary. The client should provide a full list on the details form of formal photographs required including names and relationship to the client.
Prior to or during the event, the Client may inform the photographer of subjects which they would like photographed, but the final content of the images is at the discretion of the Photographer.

The client will receive an edited selection of high-resolution JPEG digital images. The entire copyright in the photographs is retained by the photographer at all times throughout the world. The client must seek permission for use beyond reproduction and printing for friends, guests and family.

No photos will be published within 3 weeks of the date of the wedding.
The client understands that no unedited images will be released.
The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or the reception site management. The Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer.
