TERMS & CONDITIONS

Effective from the 1st of January, 2021

We have put these wedding photography & videography Terms and Conditions together so as to answer some of your frequently asked questions and prevent potential logistic difficulties from happening.

Definitions & Acceptance

“The Photographer” is referring to YORGE (Yorge Kucik). “The Client” is referring to the couple with whom the Photographer enters into a contract for the sale of goods or provision of services.

All purchase orders and transactions between the Photographer and the Client, whether made orally or in writing, are subject to these wedding photography and videography Terms & Conditions which shall be deemed to be incorporated into any contract between the Photographer and the Client.

Retainer fee & payment schedule

A retainer fee is required to reserve the dates and times of the wedding.  If the wedding is rescheduled, postponed, or cancelled; or if there is a breach of contract by the Client, the retainer fee is non-refundable and shall be liquidated damages to the Photographer.

In the unlikely event that the Photographer is unable to perform to the guidelines of this contract due to an injury, illness, act of God, act of terrorism, or other cause beyond the control of the Photographer, the Photographer will make every effort to secure a replacement.

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 wedding.

The aforementioned non-refundable retainer fee is due at the time of signing of the purchase order. The remaining balance is payable in full immediately after the wedding.

Delivery

The Photographer is not liable to deliver every image taken at the event. The determination of images delivered to the Client is left to the discretion of the Photographer. The average time of delivery is 1-2 months.

Other photographers

We reserve the right to be the only professional Photographer at your wedding. Second shooters are possible only by prior arrangement.

Event schedule

The Client agrees to notify the Photographer of any important changes in the wedding schedule or locations. The Photographer must be made aware of these changes in a timely manner, i.e. at least a week prior to the wedding.

We recommend that the Client limit the transportation time at the wedding as much as possible.

The time spent moving from one wedding location to another counts towards the booked coverage.

Permits

If an entrance fee or permit is required to enter the locations requested by the Client, it is the Client's duty to secure all such permits or entrance fees for the Photographer. Otherwise, the photographer bears no responsibility for lost time. Costs associated with entrance fees etc. are paid by the Client.

Parking

If parking at the wedding venue is complicated or requires a permit, it is in the interest of the Client to reserve, reserve or arrange a permit for a parking space for the Photographer. The photographer is not responsible for lost time caused by parking complications. The costs associated with parking are covered by the Client.

Expenses incurred

When applicable, the Client is responsible for travel & accommodation costs unless provided by the Client.

In many cases, it is necessary that the Photographer arrives the day before the wedding in order to avoid any traffic complications.

The client is obliged to provide refreshments for the photographer at the wedding (a lunch and dinner at the wedding venue are sufficient).

Limitation of liability

The Photographer is not responsible for lost time or reduced quality of images due to reasons beyond their control.

These reasons include: obstacles posed by wedding guests, very dark ceremony halls and churches, entry restrictions, unaesthetic backgrounds, wedding suit or dress defects, waiting for late guests and suppliers, poor lighting, bad weather, timetable running late, providing the wrong address of the venue and, among other things, wedding guests shooting with their phones in front of the photographer.

If the Client has specific wishes regarding the method of photography, taking pictures of a certain object or person at the wedding, he is obliged to inform the Photographer about this in a timely manner.

The client acknowledges that every person is different, has their own unique appearance, and therefore the aesthetic quality of the photos varies.

In unlikely cases that prevent the Photographer from providing the ordered services to the Client, e.g. due to injury, illness, an Act of God (participant or witness of a traffic accident...) or other causes beyond the Photographer's control, the Photographer will try to secure an appropriate replacement. In the event that a replacement is not possible, any liability or obligations of the Photographer are limited to the return of any payments made for the ordered services.

In the unlikely event that digital files have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons beyond the Photographer’s control, including but not limited to camera, hard drive, or equipment malfunction, the Photographer liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the wedding.

Films & Copyrights

The photographs produced by the Photographer are protected (all rights reserved). The Photographer grants the Client permission to share the wedding images on social networking websites, with family and friends, and on vendor websites as long as the images remain unaltered and textual credit is explicitly given to the Photographer.

The Client must obtain a written permission from the Photographer if they decide to use their work for any marketing purposes or selling the photographs. Violation of this rule will be a trespass of counterfeiting, meaning of Czech Act no. 121/2000 Coll., on Copyright and Related rights, as amended

Safety

The Photographer reserves to right to terminate coverage and leave the location of the wedding if the Photographer experiences inappropriate, threatening, hostile or offensive behavior from person(s) at the wedding; or in the event that the safety of the photographer is in question.

In the event that the Photographer is forced to leave the wedding prematurely due to the above-mentioned reasons, they will process the material documented at the wedding and is under no obligation to financially compensate for this shortened coverage.
