Schedules

Naturally Jek Photography will provide a schedule for the time that the client has booked. The schedule will include all known times for each component of the wedding day. It is the responsibility of the client to inform Naturally Jek Photography of any changes or additions made to the schedule no sooner than 7 days prior to the wedding date. Naturally Jek Photography is not responsible for any omissions to the schedule that result in us not being able to carry out our duties. Naturally Jek Photography will not be held responsible for any lack of photographs delivered due to unknown changes or omissions.

Limitations from venues

Please note that Naturally Jek Photography is governed by the restrictions imposed by churches and other venues. In some cases, venues restrict the movement of photographers, the use of flash or in extreme cases, prevent the taking of photographs at all. It is the responsibility of the client to inform themselves of these restrictions and inform Naturally Jek Photography prior to the wedding date. Naturally Jek Photography will not be held responsible for any lack of photographs delivered due to these restrictions.

Exclusivity/ Guest Photography

It is understood and agreed that Naturally Jek Photography will act as the sole and exclusive wedding photographer. Because flashes from guest’s cameras may adversely affect shots taken by Naturally Jek Photography, the Client acknowledges that they are responsible for notifying all of their guests that guest photography using flash is restricted at any time while the professional photographer is in session. The formal photography time is for the exclusive use of Naturally Jek Photography to capture the formal wedding portraits. Because of time constraints and the need for subjects to pay full attention to the professional photographer, guest photography cannot be permitted. Naturally Jek Photography agrees to guests taking snapshots during the pre and post professional sessions.

Copyright

Copyright in the photographs is retained by the client for private, domestic and personal use only. Any sale or commercial use must have written approval by Naturally Jek Photography. Naturally Jek Photography asserts all rights attached to the Photographs and the Client does NOT have the right to edit, change, add to, take from, alter or otherwise amend the Photographs without the prior written consent of Naturally Jek Photography except in the case of cropping an image. The client may submit images to their other vendors for social media use only or to “real weddings” sections of websites, magazines, and blogs, however, a credit to Naturally Jek Photography as the photographer must be given in the form of either a social media handle or direct website link. Our social media handle is @naturallyjek.photography and our website link is http://www.naturallyjek.com.au

Image Style & Editing Process

The client acknowledges that they are familiar with our style, and that our work is continually evolving and are of a unique and artistic nature, that the photos taken may be different from those taken in the past and that Naturally Jek Photography will use their expertise and artistic judgement to create images consistent with their vision of the wedding, which may be different from the clients. Our editing encompasses cropping and colour grading of all selected images for the client in Lightroom. However, our prices do not include advanced editing/retouching such as individual removal of pimples, scars, double chins or distracting elements. Additional editing may be requested and a fee per image will be quoted upon request and must be accepted prior to any work being carried out.

Unless printing has occurred at Atkins Pro Lab, which is the only Australian based lab I recommend images to be printed in the very best quality, I do not take responsibility for quality or colour issues. Printing Labs and poor download/upload processes can heavily alter the quality of the image of which Naturally Jek Photography takes no responsibility for.

Image use (Optional)

Naturally Jek Photography may use the photographs for advertising or otherwise promoting his work. This is optional and the couple must inform Naturally Jek Photography in writing if they do not wish to have their images used in any advertising or promoting.

Image Storage

Naturally Jek Photography will provide a USB and online copy of the images. After providing these in full to the client Naturally Jek Photography are no longer required to store images. Clients are advised to save the images in more then one location and take the uttermost care of the USB.

Delivery

All clients will be supplied with high-resolution jpeg files upon final delivery of USBs and online gallery. At no stage will RAW files be delivered. A sneak peak of the wedding will be uploaded to an online gallery within a week of the wedding date excluding public holidays. Final delivery of USB drives will be six weeks excluding public holidays and delivery times.

Attendance

In the unlikely event your chosen photographer is unable to complete the coverage due to unforeseen circumstances such as serious injury or death; we will work together to find a professional photographer to cover your day.

Loss or Damage

Naturally Jek Photography shall carry out this assignment with due and professional diligence. Elements that are beyond our control include interruption of our service due to guest photographers, faulty material, equipment failure or damage or loss of digital files. In the case of digital file loss prior to the delivery of USB and online gallery, Naturally Jek Photography and the client agree that the liability of Naturally Jek Photography shall be limited to a full or partial refund of any money paid under this agreement, which shall be in full & final satisfaction of any damage or loss suffered.

Coverage

Every effort will be made to capture as many moments of your day as practically possible, however it is not possible to capture absolutely everything. If you have suggestions or desires for photos to be captured such as a surprise dance down the aisle or specific family photos, please write them down on a list for me and I will do my best to get them. Because of the ever-changing nature of wedding days, not everything can be covered. Naturally Jek Photography is not responsible for a missing family member(s) during the family photo session nor promises to deliver certain images/poses however will do their uttermost to satisfy the Clients.

Guest Cooperation

The Client is responsible for the conduct of their guests. Naturally Jek Photography will not tolerate verbally or physically abusive behaviour. If the client is unable to control the conduct of their guests, resulting in an unacceptable degree of misconduct, or if the conduct of any of their guests damages the equipment of the photographer, it will result in the early or immediate departure of the photographer. The client understands that in such an event, no refunds will be granted.
