Please Read Before Procedding With A Booking
- Artistic Discretion & Changes
Client acknowledges that the Photographer and a Film Maker is a “Documentary Wedding Film Maker” and adheres to the said style. Client acknowledges that the Film Maker is using their artistic discretion to create film as the Film Maker sees fit. There can not be any fundamental changes done in the short film we make, only adding or removing any (4-5 shots) can be done, which also should be mutually decided.
The Photographers/Cinematographers will be present on wedding/event days as per the time scheduled, and it is up to the Photographer/Film Maker when enough photo/film have been captured.
- Use of Film
We hold the complete copyright over the photos and videos. We can use it on our website, social media, exhibitions, etc. If you want to buy complete rights of the work we will do for you 50% of total amount will be changed for that.
- Payment Terms
As mentioned in the quotation. Payment should be 50% booking amount and 50% should be paid on or before the date of the wedding.
As mentioned in the quotation. We do not use DVD anymore (as they are outdated for the high quality data size we work in). You have to provide a Hard disk drive (500-1000 GB), in which entire raw & processed data will be given to you.
- Delivery Timelines
All edited photos 25-30 day. If only traditional video, 2 months. In case of cinematic video in first 3 months Full Length or Short Film & Next three months remaining video ( Full or short ). Deliverable timelines of the short video can change due to selection of the music. It is a time consuming process as we finalize music when couple and we agree on one. This process can take longer than expected.

The Film Maker is not responsible for loss of, or interference with, the coverage due to restrictions on the location, including but not limited to, interference from surrounding devices, unsuitable sounds and lights, access limitations, unsuitable lighting restrictions, and the like. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that digital data and related materials are damaged in storage or transport, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the mail, fire or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Film Maker. Client understands the unpredictable and non-posed nature of photojournalism (assumption of risk) and waives any right to any civil action due to missed or lost film or digital data (including but not limited to unintentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence). In the event the Film Maker fails to deliver the film for any other reason, the Film Maker’s liability is limited solely to the return of payment received from the Client under this Agreement.
