Terms of Business
Upon confirmation of your booking, we will send you a personal contract document covering your wedding photography which will include all the agreed dates, times, costings etc, but the following gives an overview of our general terms and conditions:
This agreement contains the entire understanding between Dan Highton Photography and the named bride and groom. It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties in both verbal and written communication. The only way to add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all the parties. If the parties wish to waive or alter one provision of this agreement, that does not mean that any other provision is also waived.

Images may be used on personal websites. An acknowledgement to the photographer is requested and appreciated. The client must obtain written permission from, and compensate Dan Highton Photography prior to an event where the client, the client’s friends or relatives publish or sell the photographs for profit.
It is not uncommon for weddings to go on longer than planned. The photographer is flexible, and will allow an additional one hour for a late-running wedding. Should the ceremony start late due to any reason whatsoever, We will not be held liable for any photographs not taken.

We are providing a large selection of the best photos only, which will be a minimum of 300 guaranteed. The rest of them are available on request at no charge. We are providing a mixture of colour, black & white or various effects. We will include general touch up to a reasonable amount of photos, if required such as removing scars, blemishes or similar. We can change the photos from black & white back to colour or vice versa, within reasonable requests at no extra charge, unless the work required will involve long hours. Additional fees may apply after both parties agreement, also for digital manipulation of photos (changing parts of a photo to certain special requests)
VENUE / CEREMONY RULES:
The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the ceremony official or the reception site management. Negotiations with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the client’s responsibility.
