Terms & Conditions
Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions form an integral part of the booking contract and there will be no variation unless accepted in writing by both parties. When you enter into this booking, you accept that we cannot accept any liability whether it is a financial or any other kind of loss, which arises either as a direct/indirect result or as a consequence of any failure by me of my obligations to you in this booking, except for our obligation to return all or part of any sums that you have paid to me in accordance with these conditions.
These terms and conditions explain your rights and responsibilities and also mine. “You” means the Client named in the Contract and “I” means Kaz Davies Photography. The “Contract” means the contract signed by you and incorporates these terms and conditions.
The Booking Fee is payable by you to secure your booking. This will be set against the total fees payable by you. This is non-refundable and non-transferable to any other services or products. Full payment of the remaining balance is required 14 days before the event date. If the Package Fee is not paid by that date, I reserve the right not to provide any services until payment is made or to treat the Contract as being cancelled by you. The provisions of clause 21 will then apply. The Package Fee includes the time and expense of our photographer travelling to and from the agreed locations. It also includes his time for attending to take photographs as stated on the Contract. If the photographer is requested to stay for a longer period at the wedding or reception I will try to accommodate all reasonable requests but cannot guarantee that I will be able to do so. I reserve the right to charge additional time as an additional service at the rate specified in our current price list, a copy of which will be provided to you upon request.
All cancellations must be in writing (email or letter). Should, for whatever reason, you have to cancel the booking, the following charges will be applicable:
You will then be liable to pay to us compensation based on a percentage of the Package Fee depending upon when the notice is received:
121 days of more – Booking Fee only
91 – 120 days – 50% 61 – 90 days – 60% 31 – 60 days – 75% 0 – 30 days – 100%
Should, for whatever reason, Kaz Davies Photography need to cancel, there will be a full refund of all monies paid which is the limit of any liability on the part of Kaz Davies Photography.
The details of the event arrangements are to be agreed beforehand in writing (email is acceptable). The customer shall notify Kaz Davies photography of any changes to these details in writing. Kaz Davies Photography cannot be held liable for delays or disruption in their delivery of the service until any changes are received, and acknowledged in writing.
LICENSES, PERMISSIONS, FEES
It is the customer’s responsibility to secure access to areas for photography and obtain any permissions, licenses and cover any associated fees to any venues/locations or entertainers/musicians performing, where filming and/or shooting will take place. If you fail to do so, this may mean that we are unable to photograph the ceremony and/or the event (which is required for copyright reasons) has been obtained.
I will exercise the reasonable skill care and judgment that you would expect of a professional photographer but I shall not be liable for events beyond our reasonable control nor for loss, which is indirect or consequential. Under no circumstances will my liability to you, whether for breach of contract, negligence, breach of statutory duty or otherwise exceed the total amount that you have paid to me under this Contract. My fees have been calculated on this basis. If you wish to have additional cover we would recommend that you consider taking out a policy of insurance. Nothing in this Contract shall exclude my liability for death or personal injury caused by me of those for whose acts I am responsible.
We make every effort to produce quality film photographs and ensure all our equipment is of the highest quality and regularly maintained. We employ back-up strategies, however, Kaz Davies Photography cannot be held liable for any production problems beyond our control.

All editing decisions are to Kaz Davies Photography’s discretion. All other re-edits or any additional changes will be charged at the rate of £25.00 per hour of editing time plus the cost of recreating your disc(s)/USB and postage costs.
