  •  

  • Should I have an emergency and no longer be able to provide my services, I will provide a replacement photographer or refund your deposit. This would only be in the case of a true emergency and is never expected to be a possibility.

  •  

  • Should you need to reschedule due to illness, please give me 24-48 hours’ advance notice if possible. You are allowed one event of rescheduling but please give me as much notice as possible. Please don’t reschedule for minor skin injuries.

  •  

  • If the weather is torrential and we cannot shoot, the session will be rescheduled or shot in my studio. Clouds, wind, light sprinkles aren’t a problem and I usually go ahead in this case.

  •  

  • Please do not bring your own camera or recording equipment to the session. If a camera is present, I will have to request that it be put away and this is a very awkward moment which I would love to avoid.

  • Photographs taken by Marion Ardana Photography may be used for the purposes of display, advertising, portfolio, website or any publication to promote Marion Ardana Photography.

  • A family is defined as parents and two children. Extra people are charges per person and may result in less representation of each person due to an increased number of clients

  • At no time shall any of my work be saved to a computer/hard drive, shared online or printed. This is a breach of copyright and illegal. If you purchase the digital files, these releases will be included. However, any blog posts or Facebook images posted by Marion Ardana Photography may be freely shared with your friends and family by way of a link back to the original content. You can post images on social media that have been purchase however these must credit the photographer otherwise this is a breach of copyright.

  • Feel free to invite family members to the viewing session. I am unable to leave images with you or post them to the internet, so this will be everyone’s chance to buy their own prints or contribute to a collection if they would like some images of their own.

  •  

  • I do not offer free or discounted re-shoots on the basis of client regret over wardrobe choice, location choice, etc.

  • If your digital images are damaged prior to your viewing your gallery for any reason by the photographer, only then will a refund be given. No refund will be given for dissatisfaction with your images. If your printed product is damaged due to an error on the photographers end this can be exchanged. There are no refunds or exchanges on digital products.

  •  

  • The photographer cannot guarantee a certain number of images supplied to the client and no refund will be given due to lack of cooperation from the client. A certain amount of time is needed to represent each client sufficiently.

  •  

I am obliged to explain the following:

  • Upon viewing samples of my work, you have decided to invest in my services to photograph you and your family because you are confident that I can give you results which you desire.

  • There is no knowing what photos will be produced from this endeavour simply because this is an event in the future.

  • I will consult with you as the client to have a general idea of how you want to be photographed. This of course will vary depending on the light and setting of the day.

  • As an artist, I reserve the right to artistically interpret what I see and in what ways I choose to photograph a scene. This may mean that some shots are colour, some are B&W. This is my interpretation and vision as an artist.

All images will be given a marion Ardana Portrait style edit. The Photographer's judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the Client for preview shall be deemed correct. Further elaborate retouching, digital manipulation and artist finishing is available to the Client as an option at extra cost
