PRE-EVENT CONSULTATION: The parties agree to a free pre-event consultation two to three weeks before the event date in order to finalize the actual shooting times, locations, and CLIENT'S request list (in writing) for specific photographs. In the case of a wedding, Adrienne Photography will also agree to take a set of pre-wedding photographs of the bride and groom at the time of consultation, or at a different mutually agreed time.
COOPERATION: The Client and Adrienne Photography consent to happily cooperate and communicate with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract. We recommend that in case of a wedding, the photographer(s) be provided with a helper (usually the best man) who will point out key individuals to be photographed. The photographer(s ) may also require the assistance of the best man in organizing family groups. The bride and groom also agree to give the photographer(s) sufficient warning of key events at the wedding to give the photographer time to prepare e.g. Bouquet throwing, cutting the cake, speeches etc. Please note that not all guests at wedding like having their photo taken. In such cases the wedding photographer(s) will use his discretion but cannot be held responsible for a lack of photos of these people.
THE SCHEDULE: Our shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of wedding photos for the bride and groom, accomplished with good humour and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the bride and groom and Adrienne Photography therefore agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases where the wedding does not run on time (for example, extreme lateness by the bride arriving to the church) we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos although in such circumstances we will do our absolute best to compensate.
PAPARAZZI WEDDING GUESTS: All your guests will have digital cameras and all your guests will want to photograph the bride and groom. In the spirit of cheerful cooperation the bride and groom agree to give Adrienne Photography precedence over your guests in order to take the photographs required for the wedding services described above. We cannot be held liable for a lack of wedding photos if guests taking their own photos of the bride and groom have continually interrupted the photographer’s work.

For example some ministers insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the photographers shoot from a specific location.
