All cancellations must be in writing to "Littles & Loves Photography" to my operating address at 12 Heather Drive, LS256PW. Weddings that are postponed to a later date will retain the fee as long as The Photographer(s) can reschedule for the new date and time.

Special Requests/Coverage - The client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as the photographer’s professional expertise determines and that not one photograph will be deemed more important than another. Special requests are not binding instructions, although every effort is made to comply with client’s wishes. There is no guarantee that any particular number of images will be produced. The client understands that the photographer must follow all rules given to them by the person/s facilitating the event and are not held liable for failure to deliver should the photographer be told that they are not allowed to take photos during the event or be stationed in one spot. It is the client’s responsibility to understand the rules ahead of time.

Licence - The Photographer(s) shall be granted complete artistic licence including in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgement regarding the locations / poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct and final.

The photographer is not responsible for missed images due to details not revealed to photographer.
Model Release - The Client(s) grant the Photographers and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns, the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the images for social media, editorials, advertising and any other.
