We provide our Wedding Photography Terms and Conditions online to be as transparent as possible, there are no hidden extras. If you wish to discuss any aspect of our photography service please call 309-335-6480. We look forward to hearing from you.

It is agreed that the following Wedding Photography Terms and Conditions set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed by both parties in writing.

Booking Fee The Booking fee of 25% secures the date, time and services of  Dan Ash Photography for the wedding and is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. (Contract cancelled within 3 days of agreement is fully refundable.)  Cancellation less than 90 days  before the wedding will result in payment in full. All cancellations must be in writing. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as the photographer can re-schedule for the new date and time.

Payments 25% of the total fee must be paid to secure the date, time and services of Dan Ash Photography. The remaining balance of payment is due  no later than 21 days prior to the wedding date. No photographs or wedding albums will be delivered until all payments due have been paid in full. Payment for additional images is to be made when they are ordered.

Display Dan Ash Photography may use any images included in this contract in their studio, web site, portfolio, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising, slide shows or commercially.

Images The Photographer(s) will provide a pleasing color balance but cannot guarantee exact color matching owing to anomalous refraction caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibers.  Color is also affected by the lighting conditions at the ceremony and/or reception. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact color as seen by the human eye.

Retouching Retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an optional extra.

Reorders All reorders shall be treated as an extension of this contract and no responsibility for error will be accepted unless orders are given in writing.

Copyright Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise and any computer program including any source or object code, computer files or printed documentation relating to such images are protected by the Copyright and Design Act 1988 and remain the copyright of Dan Ash Photography. It is contrary to the Act to copy or allow to be copied photographically, electronically or by any other means an image created as part of this contract without the written permission of Dan Ash Photography.

License Dan Ash Photography shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgment regarding the locations, poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.

Force majeure or Act of God The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control.

Attendance In the unlikely event of the assigned Photographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your wedding on our behalf to undertake the wedding photography to his / her best ability.

Limitation of Liability In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.

Cancellation The Client may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to Dan Ash Photography but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 90 days before the wedding date will result in the payment in full.

Negatives / Digital Files Negatives / digital files remain the sole property of Dan Ash Photography.

Gift Certificates Dan Ash Photography Gift Certificates are valid for 18 months from the date of purchase. Please note that Dan Ash Photography Gift Certificates cannot be exchanged for cash, are not transferable and are not negotiable.

Complaints Any complaints should first be raised by the Client with Dan Ash Photography in writing within 14 days from the date of provision of web gallery preview images. In the unlikely event of an unresolved complaint the Client may request the Professional Photographers of America to mediate but only on the basis that its decision shall be final and binding upon both parties.

Payments All checks to be made payable to Darrell Garrett.  Credit Cards are also accepted, however a 5% processing fee will be added to the total to cover credit card expenses.
