Except as noted below, all photographs created by Kelsey McFarlane Photography are copyright protected. You agree not to make copies for sale or for the purpose of circumventing sale of the images by us. You also agree not to authorize any reproductions of the images for commercial use.
So that you receive the best service and most compelling photos possible, we must be the exclusive professional photographers for your wedding. Additional professional photographers may be employed only with prior written permission from us, under the condition that they do not interfere with our production.
3. Limits of liability
While every reasonable effort will be made to produce and deliver outstanding photographs of the wedding events, our entire liability to you for any claim or loss arising from our performance is limited to a refund to you of the amount paid for services. Because a wedding is an uncontrolled event, we cannot guarantee delivery of any specifically requested image(s). We will not be held liable for any production problems beyond our control, e.g. bad weather, accidents, poor acoustics/lighting, interference from guest etc.
It will be your responsibility to schedule and receive permission to use various locations for photography, including the wedding and reception locations and any other locations used during the day(s).
5. Reservation of wedding date
All retainers are non-refundable. We will reserve the time and date shown above upon signature and receipt of the required retainer. If you subsequently change the date, and if we are available on that date, a new retainer will be required to reserve the date. Upon receipt of the retainer we will reserve your date and be available to you on that date for duration not less than the amount specified in section 7. Additionally, we will not book any additional events on that date. In the unlikely occurrence of an illness or injury that prevents any of us from photographing your wedding, we will promptly inform you and, depending on your decision at that time, either: (a) Attempt to secure an alternate, professional photographer who will photograph your wedding on our behalf, or (b) Refund your retainer and all subsequent deposits in full.
