This Agreement expresses the full and complete agreement between the named parties and Something Like Life Photography & Design (Hereafter referred to as SLL PHOTOGRAPHY) regarding the subject matter hereof. It supersedes all prior agreements. The only way to add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all parties.
Unless otherwise noted, SLL PHOTOGRAPHY, its associates or employees will be the exclusive photographer(s) at this event. CLIENT agrees that guests may not take photos of the assigned photographer(s) setups, poses or arrangements without prior permission from the photographer(s). The Parties agree that good faith cooperation and communication between them is important in obtaining a good result. SLL PHOTOGRAPHY recommends that CLIENT identify to the photographer(s) important individuals during the event and during associated portraits, if they wish to have them photographed. SLL PHOTOGRAPHY or the photographer(s) will not be held accountable for not photographing desired guests if there is no one to assist in identifying and gathering people for photographs. SLL PHOTOGRAPHY is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during photography, or for missed images due to details not revealed to SLL PHOTOGRAPHY or beyond the photographer(s) control.
CLIENT agrees and understands that the photographer(s) are limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or reception site/venue management and CLIENT agrees to accept the results that may occur from said guidelines. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is solely the CLIENTs responsibility. SLL PHOTOGRAPHY will however offer technical recommendations concerning such guidelines.
Photographs/images produced by SLL PHOTOGRAPHY are protected by Federal Copyright Law (all rights reserved). Upon final payment by CLIENT, CLIENT is granted limited license to use and display resulting images for personal use. Said images may not be altered or reproduced in any manner without prior written permission of SLL PHOTOGRAPHY. This excepting CLIENTS who receive a high resolution digital disk, flash drive, or digital downloads with printing rights, who may make prints for personal use, as indicated on the print release, but may not copy, or redistribute the disk/images in any manner. The CLIENT must obtain written permission from, and compensate SLL PHOTOGRAPHY prior to the CLIENT, its associates, friends or relatives publishing or selling the photographs.
The CLIENT hereby grants to SLL PHOTOGRAPHY and successors, heirs, executors, administrators, assigns, attorneys, representatives and agents, the irrevocable and unrestricted right to use and publish photographs of the CLIENT or in which the CLIENT may be included, for editorial, trade, advertising or any other purpose and in any manner or medium; to alter the same without restriction; and to copyright the same. The CLIENT hereby releases SLL PHOTOGRAPHY and all associates representatives and assigns from any and all claims, actions, demands, suits, liabilities, damages, expenses, and obligations of any kind arising from, or related in any manner to SLL PHOTOGRAPHY use of said images.
A 20% retainer of your total cost is due at the signing of this agreement. This is a NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER. Should CLIENT cancel or otherwise breach this Agreement, the NON-REFUNDABLE RETAINER shall be liquidated for damages to SLL PHOTOGRAPHY. The CLIENT shall also be responsible for payment of any materials/charges incurred up to time of cancellation. Otherwise, the retainer shall apply towards the final total, with the remainder of charges payable in full, four weeks prior to the date of the event.
In the unlikely event that the photographer(s) are injured, become too ill, or has an emergency that prevents them from photographing the event, SLL PHOTOGRAPHY will make every effort to secure a replacement photographer. If a suitable replacement is not found, CLIENT agrees that responsibility and liability of SLL PHOTOGRAPHY to the CLIENT is limited to the return of all payments received for the event. SLL PHOTOGRAPHY takes the utmost care with respect to exposure, storage, and processing the photographs/images, but cannot and does not; guarantee that photographs/images of the event will not be lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond SLL PHOTOGRAPHY control. CLIENT agrees that SLL PHOTOGRAPHY or the photographer(s) full and complete responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event.
