WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEO BOOKING AGREEMENT
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This agreement contains the entire understanding between Nevin Photography and the Client.
It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties. The only way to
add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all the parties. If the parties want to waive one
provision of this agreement that does not mean that any other provision is also waived. The party against whom a
waiver is sought to be effective must have signed a waiver in writing.
RESERVATION/DEPOSIT: A signed agreement and reservation fee (deposit) are required to reserve the specified
coverage. Deposit will be €300 non-refundable. Make Cheque/Postal Order out to ‘Tomás Nevin’. Deposits are
also acceptable via Electronic Banking. Bank transfer details are available on request.
In the event that more than one client wishes to book wedding services on the same day, preference will go to the
first client to pay the deposit. Rescheduled weddings will only be accommodated if the new date does not conflict
with another booked wedding.
COVERAGE: The Photography/Videography schedule and selected methodology are designed to accomplish the
goals and wishes of the Client in a manner enjoyed by all parties. The Photographer/Videographer shall be
granted artistic license in relation to the poses recorded and the locations used. The photographer’s judgment
regarding the location, poses and number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct. Photographs/Video taken
during the course of the event will be at the discretion of the Photographer/Videographer, although every effort will
be made to comply with the Client’s requirements. Creative aspects such as shooting and editing style are at the
discretion of Nevin Photography. Nevin Photography will be the exclusive
professional Photographer/Videographer. Friends and family are permitted to operate video cameras on the
condition that they do not interfere with or get in the way of the professional coverage.
Nevin Photography will not be held liable for any production problems beyond our control, e.g. bad
weather, accidents, poor acoustics/lighting, interference from guests, etc.
The Photographer/Videographer shall endeavour to capture all the moments throughout the day as they occur.
However, because of the fluid nature of the event, some moments might not be recorded, or not recorded for
logistical reasons. For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues – the priest, minister, or hotel
manager sometimes restricts the Photographer’s/Videographer’s movements. The area from which the
Photographer/Videographer is able to cover may not be the photographer’s choice, and the
Photographer/Videographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case. The use
of artificial lighting may also be restricted or prohibited. In addition, Nevin Photography is not responsible if key
individuals fail to appear or cooperate during Photography/Videography sessions, or for missed scenes due to details
not revealed to Nevin Photography. Due to traffic or other delays, it may not be always possible to capture the bride
and groom arriving at the reception venue.
COPYRIGHT: This applies to the Irish Copyright & Related Rights Act 2000,as below.
Title to all images – photographic prints, transparencies or film, and digital or electronic images, and other material
whether analogue or digital, delivered to the client, remain the property of the photographer/videographer Nevin Photography.
Copyright Waiver: As part of this agreement Nevin Photography hereby allows the reproduction
and sharing of all provided Photography and Video to the client for personal use only. No commercial use is
allowed unless agreed in advance.
CANCELLATION FEES: In the event of client cancellation, the security deposit paid is non-refundable. It shall be
liquidated damages to Nevin Photography in the event of a breach of agreement by Client.
COOPERATION: The bride and groom agree to set time before the ceremony commencement of the wedding, and
after the ceremony for photographs. If the bride’s or grooms late arrival prevents this from occurring the
Photographer/Videographer shall not be held liable for failure to record desired scenes. Client and Nevin Photography
agree that cheerful cooperation and punctuality are therefore essential to that purpose.
Shooting commences at the scheduled start time. There is a danger that guests can unwittingly spoil shots. This
can be as simple as trying to repeat shots taken by the ‘official photographer’, or distracting the subjects so the
eyes are not looking at the camera, or floating into view on formal set-piece shots, or compromising the ambience
of scenes by the inappropriate use of flash Photography. The Photographer/Videographer Nevin Photography can speak
with the guest or bride or groom or coordinator if appropriate. In some circumstances coverage maybe
compromised or may have to be cut short. An inconsiderate guest, whether family, friend or other, can spoil the
record of your special day – they need to be aware that you have hired a professional Photographer/Videographer
in commissioning your wedding day. The activity of another professional, freelance or videographer or enthusiast
hobbyist can endanger the quality of the final product.
MODEL RELEASE: The Client hereby grants and assigns to Nevin Photography and its legal representatives,
the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish photographs of the Client (Bride, Groom, Wedding Party)
and other parties (guests etc) at this commission, in which the Client or other may be included for –portfolio use
i.e. non-commercial use.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: In the unlikely event that the Photographer/Videographer is injured or becomes too ill to
photograph/video the event, Nevin Photography will make every effort to secure a replacement
photographer. If the situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found, responsibility and liability is
limited to the return of all payments received for the event package. Nevin Photography takes the
utmost care with respect to exposure, transportation, and processing the photographs/video. However, in the
unlikely event that photographs/video have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond Nevin Photography
control, Nevin Photography’s liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event package. The limit of liability
for a partial loss of originals shall be a prorated amount of the scenes lost based on the percentage of total number of originals.
