50% of the agreed fee if cancelled less than 6 months prior to the wedding date 100% of the agreed fee if cancelled less than 30 days of the wedding date.

Should the cancelled wedding turn out to be a postponement, then subject to availability on a new date, monies other than the booking fee may be applied to a new wedding date.  In the event that Michelle Williams Photography cancels services for the wedding date, due to illness, accident or act of God, any fees paid, including the deposit will be returned to the client.

COVERAGE

Michelle Williams Photography cannot be held responsible for the lack of coverage caused by the bride, the bride groom or other members of the wedding party not being ready on time. Neither by restrictions placed on the photographer by the church, register office or licensed wedding venues.  Michelle Williams Photography does not guarantee any specific picture nor to include any specific background, location, props or arrangement.  Although every effort will be made to interpret the clients wishes.

Michelle Williams Photography is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or reception site management. The Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the clients responsibility. Michelle Williams Photography will offer technical recommendations only.

COLOUR MATCHING AND SIZES

With regards to colour images, owing to photo chromatic anomalies caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially in man made fibers, it is sometimes impossible to record on camera the exact colour of materials perceived by the human eye.  When processing images, Michelle Williams Photography will endeavor to achieve a pleasing overall colour balance based on natural flesh tones.  It is understood that some colours may not remain consistent throughout a set of photographs owing to variations in lighting conditions.

It is also understood that all photographic printing is undertaken within the technical limitations of the process and that colour may not be identical over the whole range within a subject.  The colour balance of prints made at different times or in varying sizes may also be variable. Due to the limitations of computer monitors it is understood that images may appear differently according to the specification of each monitor.  Prints will not match images rendered on any computer monitor.  For best results we encourage clients to purchase prints through Michelle Williams Photography where high quality professional print labs are used.

NEGATIVES/Raw Files

All negatives and electronic images created by Michelle Williams Photography shall remain the property of Michelle Williams Photography.  Who will undertake to store all such negatives safely and make them available for future reproduction. Photographic prints will become and remain the property of the client(s).
