All terms are applied with immediate effect from booking.


Please note ‘Phink Photography’ is referred to as a business and not an individual.


Booking Fee

The booking fee discussed secures the date, time and services of Phink Photography for your event and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation.


All cancellations must be in writing to:

Rebecca@PhinkPhotography.co.uk


Events that are postponed to a later date within 4 weeks from the original booking will retain the deposit and be rescheduled as long as the photographer has no prior bookings for that time and date otherwise the original deposit shall be lost and you will have to pay a new booking fee to arrange a new date.

Refund Policies

Any deposit payment made for Phink Photography’s services are non-refundable under any circumstances, it being the agreed loss of the photographer.

Phink Photography will not accept the return of/refusal to pay charges for, any technically acceptable photograph supplied either in print or in electronic format.

No exception can be made as we cannot be held responsible for individual tastes.


Service

It is understood that you shall provide me with the venues full address details including post code and correct time of service.

This shall allow the photographer to understand the exact travel and service time to make sure they are available before every moment is about to happen.

The photographer shall not be held responsible for any late arrivals/missed sessions due to mis-typed addresses/timings.


Coverage Permissions

For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge.

The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case.

In some cases, photography during the ceremony is not permitted, the photographer cannot be held responsible if no images are taken of the ceremony if permission is not granted.


Images

The photographer will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching.


Reportage Style

The photography aims to document your day as it is.

The photographer can only photograph what is happening so if you wish for images of certain things, make sure they happen for photographs. 

It is acknowledged that not all guests will be comfortable with or possibly allow their photograph to be taken and although Phink Photography will use their best endeavors and discretion, they cannot be held responsible for a lack of photographs of these people within the photographs


Traditional Element (Weddings)

All photography packages include traditional elements which will take the photography through the day such as: Brides arrival, Bride and Groom with guests etc.

It is the responsibility of the couple to allow the photographer time for these photographs.

If no time is allowed, the photographer cannot be held responsible for the missing photographs from your wedding images.


Creative License

The judgement of the photographer on photographic style and the number of photographs taken shall be deemed to be correct.

Due to changes in the weather and the availability and willingness of the subjects, Phink Photography will endeavour to fulfil the booking to its full potential but does not undertake to guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.

Phink Photography reserves the right to delete, destroy or withhold any images, which are believed to be of a low technical or creative quality


Lighting

Some ceremony and reception venues have poor lighting which makes it difficult to capture some of the moments; flash photography shall be used where possible/allowed. 


Blinking

Phink Photography will retake a shot where we have seen a blink.

It is impossible to guarantee to spot every blink, especially in group shots.

All efforts will be made in edit to save any blinking shots but this cannot be guaranteed. 


Special Requests

Every effort is made to fulfil special requests but is not a binding instruction.
If there is anything specific you require for your day, please submit in writing to Rebecca@PhinkPhotography.co.uk so it can be documented before your big day.


Retouching

Basic enhancing shall be included in ordered images and products.


Reorders

Payment is made for reorders separately to this contract.


License

Phink Photography shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used.

The Photographers judgement regarding the locations, poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct.

Due to the changes of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.


Attendance

In the unlikely event of the assigned photographer being unable to attend your event due to unforeseen circumstances, you will be refunded the full amount you have paid through a bank transfer so it is confirmed for both parties’ statements.

The photographer reserves the right to leave the event at any time should there be any altercation or where the safety of the photographer is compromised, this is to protect the photographer's equipment and well-being and will not refund any monies previously paid in this circumstance.


Time Limits

For weddings and special events, the photographer is happy to start at any time needed to comply with the chosen wedding package, however shall stay no later than 9:00pm or longer than 12 hours (Including 2 hour minimum break time) unless agreed otherwise and requested in writing.

Any requests over this time will be charges at an hourly rate as agreed by the photographer, usually at £45.00 per hour.

If there are any specific photos needed, this must be done before this time otherwise they shall be missed and the photographer will not be held liable.

The maximum amount of hours the photographer will attend one event is 12 hours, this includes break times in-between which will be discussed when to be took at an appropriate time during the day with the couple.

Break
The photographer is happy to work around the couple on an appropriate time to take a break.
It is usually advised this is during the meal, as the majority of the wedding party will not appreciate having their photos taken whilst eating.
In events where the photographer is returning to document speeches, if speeches are done before the meal, the photographer will take their break after these and will return at the same time the evening guests are due to arrive.
If speeches are done after the meal, either a meal must be provided for the photographer OR the photographer will take a minimum of 2 hours break to allow for travel and resting time to get a meal for themselves.
On occasions where no speeches are being done, the photographer will require a minimum of 2 hours break to allow for travel and resting time to get a meal for themselves.
