TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR LIFESTYLE PHOTOSHOOTS
Choosing the Right Photographer
IS SO IMPORTANT
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.
All packages are priced in line with a local travel fee included (unless otherwise indicated), session shoot duration, equipment and business coverage plus my editing style. Travel fee's for out of area photoshoots will be quoted separately upon enquiry.
All prices are outlined under the 'package' tab. Once an invoice is sent the client has 7 days to make their booking payment to secure the date and photoshoot at that price. Failure to do so will result in the date being made available to other clients and price changes.
For lifestyle packages (all non-wedding related packages offered by Naturally Jek Photography) a retainer of $100 secures your booking with Naturally Jek Photography. The remainder of the clients chosen photography collection is due 7 days prior to the booked photoshoot date. Failure to make full payment 7 days prior may result in compromising your photoshoot and loose of your retainer.
Details for payment are sent as an invoice via email and on Wedding Booking Form. Failure to make payment within the allocated timeframe may result in a postponed or cancellation of your session.
Naturally Jek Photography reserves the right to terminate coverage and leave the location of the photoshoot/event if the photographer experiences inappropriate, threatening, hostile or offensive behaviour from anyone at the photoshoot/event, or in the event that the safety of the photographer is in questions. If Naturally Jek Photography leaves the photoshoot/event in accordance with this clause, Naturally Jek Photography will not be liable to refund any amount to the Client, but will be obliged to provide the Client with photographs taken by Naturally Jek photography prior to Naturally Jek photography leaving the photoshoot/event.
Session Times and Late Clients:
Naturally Jek Photography will arrive promptly to session on if not before the start time. If the weather is raining, preventing the session going ahead, Jekka will be in touch to reschedule or change location. If clients are late in arriving, this will impact the session and how many images may be able to be delivered. Most sessions are scheduled on "Golden Hour" which is the hour before sunset. Once the sun is set, the lack of light prevents the session from continuing in many cases. There is no guarantee that sessions will be extended if clients are late. Nor will a refund/partial refund be given.
The retainer that holds your date is non-refundable. Should you no longer require Naturally Jek Photography's after making a booking, the retainer will not be refunded. All other monies paid to Naturally Jek Photography except the retainer will be refunded if more than one month’s notice is given. Notice given inside of one month will not be refunded. If you need to reschedule and notice is given within one month of your photoshoot date, a rescheduling fee of $100 will occur.
If the weather permits the photoshoot from occurring, the rescheduling fee will not apply. This is to be decided at the discretion of Naturally Jek Photography due to the weather sensitive equipment required to render the service. If Naturally Jek Photography experience a emergency that renders them unable to provide the agreed service, a total refund will be provided.
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. The social media handle is @naturallyjek.photography and website link is www.naturallyjek.com.
Once the product/gallery has been delivered it is the clients responsibility to download and back up these images. After delivery, Naturally Jek Photography is not required to store or retain the images. The online gallery will be available for a minimum of 2 months and thereafter the galley may not be available.
