Please read through the following information carefully. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me as soon as possible. This agreement binds the photographer and the client to the following terms and policies as stated below.
Thank you so much,
Kelly Baker Photography
1. Entire Agreement:
This agreement contains the entire understanding between Kelly Baker Photography and the client.
Once Kelly Baker Photography has received the initial 20% Deposit of the chosen wedding package, Kelly Baker Photography will reserve your date and time and will not make any other reservations for that date and time. For this reason the 20% deposit is non-refundable even if the date changes or the wedding is cancelled for any reason. The booking deposit is applied towards the selected wedding photography package of your choice. The Client understands that the entire amount owed for the wedding package is to be paid in full during the week of the wedding. (If client is having difficulty paying the outstanding amount they must discuss this matter with Kelly Baker as soon as possible).
In the unfortunate event that the client cancels the contracted wedding photography services outlined in this contract, there will be no refund of the deposit; however, the remaining 80% is refundable. I am more than willing to discuss moving dates if need be.
4. Pre-Wedding Consultations:
Both parties agree to at least one pre-wedding consultation to confirm and finalize dates and the information provided via the Kelly Baker Photography Pre-Wedding Questionnaire. These pre-wedding consultations will be scheduled between Kelly Baker and the client approximately three-to-six weeks prior to the date of the wedding and, if desired, another meeting at approximately two weeks prior to the date of the wedding.
5. Event Guide:
The client is directly responsible for identifying family/friends of whom the clients desire specific photographs. Kelly Baker Photography will not be held accountable for not photographing desired friends/family members if there is no-one to assist with identifying or gathering people for photographs.
Both parties agree to positive cooperation and communication to ensure the best possible outcome regarding photographs taken on the wedding day. Kelly Baker Photography is not responsible for any key individual’s absence or failure to cooperate (the rather intoxicated best man, for example), which would prevent Kelly Baker Photography from providing the best quality images to the client. If events outside of our control, such as weather, late arrival of Client or subjects, missing persons, short timelines, venue restrictions, guest intereference, etc. prevent the creation of some images, Kelly Baker Photography assumes no liability for failure to comply with the terms of the Agreement due to events outside of our control. In such an event, a "Day-After" session may be desired.
7. Wedding Time Line:
The wedding time-line described in the Pre-Wedding Questionnaire is designed to accomplish the wishes/goals of the client in a manner that is well-organized and beneficial to both parties. The client and Kelly Baker Photography both agree that positive cooperation and punctuality are therefore essential. Shooting, unless otherwise directed, will begin and end at the scheduled times. If the client wishes for the photographer to stay longer than agreed upon, this is not a problem; an invoice of $50/hour for each additional hour the photographer is asked to stay.
Once you receive your images, you have full right to print unlimited copies for yourselves, as well unlimited online sharing. It is, however, illegal to sell or alter your images (ie. by cropping or adding stylistic filters) without Kelly Baker Photography’s permission. These photos are considered property of Kelly Baker Photography and may be shared on my business website, my Facebook page, and in print portfolios. If there are certain photos you do not want shared (ie. children, kissing, crying) please let me know and your wishes will be fully respected.
The charges of the photo session are based on Kelly Baker Photography’s Standard Price List, located on the website. This price list may adjusted periodically and future orders shall be charged at the prices in effect at the time when the order is placed.
All proofs are available in a private proofing gallery within 2-3 weeks of your wedding date (unless otherwise noted). The client will only be provided with photos that meet the artistic standards of the photographer. The client has access to their proofing gallery for 7 days. All print/product orders must be placed within this time.
11. Exclusivity/Guest Photography:
It is understood that Kelly Baker Photography will act as the sole and exclusive wedding photographer. Because of the fact that other cameras flashes may affect/ruin images taken by Kelly Baker Photography, it is requested that the clients inform guests that taking flash photos are discouraged and that they may purchase a photo book from Kelly Baker Photography if they want photos captured of your wedding day. The formal photography time is exclusively for Kelly Baker Photography to capture all the formal wedding portraits, so guest photography is not permitted at this time.
The client agrees to collect the wedding photography USB drive from myself, Kelly Baker, at a mutually agreeable location. The client is aware that the USB drive will not be given until the entire balance of the package is paid in full.
Thank you very much for choosing Kelly Baker Photography to craft the story of your special day!
