All photographs created by Cooper's Photography are copyright protected. It is a violation of federal copyright law to copy, scan, or allow photographs we have created to be reprinted, duplicated, digitally reproduced, copied, scanned, or altered (digitally or otherwise), without our express written permission. You agree to purchase wedding photography images directly from us unless in possession of the digital negatives. You have the right to make and use copies of the images for your own use on electronic mail and web pages. 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 photographer for your wedding. We will request your intervention if a guest is inhibiting our ability to fully document your wedding.
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).
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 deposits are non-refundable. We will reserve the time and date shown above upon signature and receipt of the required retainer. We will not book any additional events on that date. In the unlikely occurrence that your date is canceled, your deposit is non-refundable. However, in the unlikely occurrence that illness or injury prevents 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 all deposits in full.
6. Payment for services.
A non-refundable retainer of 50% of your package is due at the signing of this Agreement. The retainer IS applied toward your total package. We will not reserve your wedding date until after receipt of the deposit. The remaining balance is due within 3 months of this signed contract. If this Agreement is signed less than 3 months from the wedding date, then all payments are due at signing. If the remaining balance is not paid in full by the agreed upon dates, we reserve the right not to photograph the event.
8. Model release
We may make reproductions for you, our portfolio, samples, self promotional advertisements, or for professional competition and review. We will not make reproductions for other use without first obtaining written permission from you.
